Angels fall like rain

“A race is on,
I’m on your side,
and hearing you my engines die.
I’m in a mood for you,
for running away.

Stars come down in you,
and love…
you can’t give it away.”

The Ghost in You :: The Psychedelic Furs

“I don’t want to leave.” ~ Bob
“So don’t. Stay here with me. We’ll start a jazz band.” ~ Charlotte

It comes on unexpected, like the faded memories of a near completed dream. You wake up and rub your eyes, try to recapture what has just transpired in that subconscious film of sleep. You remember what you first felt, how it grew and how it stuck and stayed. Words spoken, misunderstandings and genuine understandings, and the shadows of past pain that ghosts across your skin, tethering your fears and dobuts to the core of who we are. There are consequences to all of it, but sometimes, something is strong enough to do more then just haunt the subject of your dreams. Sometimes it teaches you things about the world, about life, about yourself. And, sometimes, it is worth being patient for, and waiting as long as forever, because you know – in your conscious and subconscious – that it will be worth it; that it will be more than just ghosts of some oft forgotten dream.

A favorite song of mine set to one of my all-time favorite films.
