It's amazing. To think. Of Nina Simone. I'm a mix of emotions with her sounds. Much like Miles I play Nina when I need to think. Thinking of people... It's not funny but I'll say it is and I'll laugh because to me it isn't a lie: The way most people think I'm lonely is the same way I think most people would prefer to be alone. Well, I'm generally not lonely although I'm single and I'm guessing that y'all don't mind the company... Right? At times, I do get lonely though and often I never turn down a chance for company! My out of state homesick friend tells me they are doing better and meeting people. On that note I'll say: We are opposites in humanity, projecting our feelings onto others. Interesting thought? In writing it's easier to write about love and romance when you are single and sadness when you are happy because there is no one to project upon except the unknown man you haven't dated yet... well you hope you aren't. Most often I'm wrong and someone's making something about them. Oh well. The mind is your most powerful ally or your enemy. Choose wisely. 

Here's an older piece from the 8 words series inspired by Nina Simone. 

Kisses, m. 

There'll come a time, don't you forget it

All day before my eyes come little visions.
There’s a beautiful land where dreams come true.
And this old world is a new world.
Aren’t many things one can be sure of…
In one moment you’ll know what it is
There'll come a time, don't you forget it.

You might find the night-time the right time
You walk without a sound down forgotten streets
And you see it comin' down the street
In it’s hanging on, and with fingers clutching
Baby, telling you, you've been gone too long.

I've got to follow where it leads me
Here tonight as I stand inside the rain
I'm glad I'm mad and can't live without
Me wanting a little sweetness in my soul

I want to touch your face, your hands
I’ve always loved the simple things about you
Oh touch me now and let me know
If you like it let me know it.

In the dark I get such a thrill
When I kiss you every night and day.
You are my nights; my night and day.
I declare you gonna drive me stone insane

Quiet baby, don’t explain there’s nothing to gain.
Don't talk just hold me closer to you.
I need your affection and not your protection
Keep looking in my eyes we'll be fine
I know it will be so it's time

Lie away resting away deep in my arms
From memory these arms still hold a thrill.
A thrill that should have been gone by
Like that dance before the flame that burns. 

Oh please forget the dreams that were broken
The future that someone says may never be
Tomorrow might not come, when dreamers dream late
But still I hope the time will come.
And when you have some time to spend
Come on back see me when you can.
