If dreams could be real
You'd live
We'd walk in the park, smiling
But spring's here again
And you're not

How far would you go

how far would you walk with me my friend
all the way through the swamp of sadness
where despair seeps into your veins
leaving your limbs as heavy as stone
how far would you walk with me my friend
how far would you walk with me my friend
all the way over the mountains of dread
where the fear claws at your feet
and the paths are as treacherous as thieves
how far would you walk with me my friend
how far would you walk with me my friend
all the way through the valley of pain
where the roads are as sharp as razors
and the rivers run with blood
how far would you walk with me my friend
how far would you walk with me my friend
All the way to the ends of the earth
where the emptiness is as vast
as the hole in my heart
how far would you walk with me my friend
how far would you go

Weer een lange stilte hier op mijn weblog. Het lukt me niet te schrijven de afgelopen tijd. Niet echt in ieder geval. Er is de optie in tijden van plenty inspiration posts in te programmeren zodat er altijd wat nieuws verschijnt. Dat voelt een beetje als cheaten, maar misschien is dat toch een idee. Soms schrijf ik heel erg veel, soms komt er geen woord op digitaal papier. 
So sorry to keep you waiting. To be continued ...

Bookreview: It's kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini

Title: It's Kind of a Funny Story
Author: Ned Vizzini
ISBN: 9780786851973
© 2006 Ned Vizzini
Ambitious New York City teenager Craig Gilner is determined to succeed at life - which means getting into the right high school to get into the right job. But once Craig aces his way into Manhattan's Executive Pre-Professional High School, the pressure becomes unbearable. He stops eating and sleeping until, one night, he nearly kills himself.
Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital, where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict, a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors, and the self-elected President Armelio. There, Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
Ned Vizzini, who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital, has created a remarkably moving tale about the sometimes unexpected road to happiness.
I came across this book in a bookswap-point and the title and description interested me enough to take the book home with …

The weight of water

lily-pads float languidly like they have no mass
no fear of sinking
fairies tiptoe carefully on the waters surface


but if I don't swim I sink like a stone
the weight of water heavy above me
I can see from below
the show the fairies display
of walking on water
