Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe

Posted 01-09-2009 at 01:58 AM by u2popmofo

It's funny how sometimes knowing your friends are going through a terrible time can upset you as much as if you were in their place. As always, songs make more sense to me than anything else. This one's for a person I've been friends with since the first day of junior high and will never read it. Hope you feel better soon, sorry that life never seems to end up how you want it to.

It's just a bad movie, where there's no crying - handing the keys to me in this Red Lion, where the lock that you locked in the suite says there's no prying. When the breath that you breathed in the street screams there's no science. When you look how you looked then to me, then I cease lying and fall into silence.

It's just a life story, so there's no climax. No more new territory, so pull away the IMAX. In the slot that you sliced through the scene there was no shyness. In the plot that you passed through your teeth there was no pity. No fade in: film begins on a kid in the big city. And no cut to a costly parade that's for him only. No dissolve to a sliver of grey - that's his new lady, where she glows just like grain on the flickering pane of some great movie. (Hey, I'd watch it!)

It's just a house burning, but it's not haunted. It was your heart hurting, but not for too long, kid. In the socket you spin from with ease there is no sticking. From the speakers your fake masterpiece comes serenely dribbling. When the air around your chair fills with heat, that's the flames licking beneath the clock on the clean mantlepiece. It's got a calm clicking, like a pro at his editing suite takes two weeks stitching up some bad movie.

    I hope that whatever your friend is going through abates soon an leaves little scars of any variety once gone. I also hope that whatever impact this is having on you currently subsides a bit day by day.

    At the very least, your friend is lucky to have someone out there who very much gives a shit about him/her.
