even NJ loves NY
the low aching moan dusts me awake
filled with yearning and lined with blues
winding into my sleep-fogged mind
the beat begins to fill me in
slowly rising, your voice caresses the shadows
stoking the fire

the rhythm builds quickly
carrying me away
filling me with a love that's not in me
causing the desire to surge through my veins
like unbridled horses, free and frothing at the wind
you are above, I am below
but I cannot bring myself to meet your venomous eye, the eye of a needle

your falsetto kicks in, high and soaring
my conscience is a derailed train
damming any thoughts of reality
I am swept beyond the stars
climaxing in the painfully sweet fix I need

between drumbeats an eternity is lost
and slowly I sink back
to be caught tenderly by the memory of another pain
before God and all who would see
I kneel to lick the shallow remains
but somewhere in the pools of dreaming
I caught a glimmer of understanding

just some bad imagery for the pure ecstasy U2 creates and calls music

just for fun, any guesses as to which song?
c'mon, no fear..

contradiction is balance
I was thinking Streets, but no falsetto, right? Bet it's something from the 90's. Hmm...this will bug me till I get it.

Is it Ultraviolet? I think it just might be.

"the pools of dreaming"...beautiful line.

You say I'm a fool
You say I'm nothing
But if I'm a fool for you
Oh, that's something
hmm, this is beautiful regardless of any song U2 ever might have written. Although it does bring to mind something of the drug like euphoria their music brings forth. I would also have to guess Ultraviolet...

"i remember when we could sleep on stones, now we lie together in whispers and moans..."

btw, ever heard "The Eyes Of Truth" by Enigma?? if so, notice something striking about the beginning?? i'll leave you to discover... enjoy..

"I don't want to be the bleeding hearts club here, but you can't close your eyes to what's going on in the world. But you want to hopefully make a music that tries to transcend that and lift yourself and, if you're lucky, other people out of that." -- Bono, 1997
nope, it's not Ultraviolet but that's a really good guess. give you a hint, it's from the 80s and it's one of my favourites, some of you may have been around long enough to know..

no Bacchus, I haven't heard it but I'll add it to the growing list of music I NEED to have

i'll wait a bit and see if anyone else wants to take a stab at it

contradiction is balance
It might be Heartland. Or Unforgettable Fire?

Actually--I think I'm missing the obvious. Bet it's With Or Without You.

Eyes of Truth is a brilliant song! I love it!

Bad or WOWY seem to fit your lovely poem.. I dunno.
hmmm... there are a lot of different elements in this poem: i like the erotic/intimate relationship aspect even if it's smeared with a painful buzz and remains ambiguous as to what that relationship is (which makes it even stronger because of the ambiguity)... lovers? addicts? friends/ family, faith/religion, life/death

yes, I think they all fit

I am too pure for you or anyone.
Your body hurts me as the world hurts God. I am a lantern-----
Does not my heat astound you. And my light.
All by myself I am a huge camellia

--Sylvia Plath
That was really good! Now I want to know...which song is it?

"Don't worry about the world ending today. It's already tomorrow in Australia."
actually, many songs could fit but i was writing listening to Running To Standstill

thanks everyone for playing my little guessin game

thanks Wanderer too, i'm happy because i wanted it to encompass several things and you got em pretty well tagged

contradiction is balance
haha! well I'm pleased to hear that BG, maybe all those lit and poetry courses I took not long ago didn't go to waste after all

but yes, thank you for making me ponder these things, and yet making the process so delightful
