Quarter Past Ten

Quarter Past Ten


Not even quarter past ten and all the hopes of becoming a mother hen have been ditched alongside with the surgeon pen.

They talk about over usage, I hear the word damage but I don't listen anymore so finally from the discussion the best is to disengage. All I wanted was to be part of a pilgrimage where your life would not be a blurry image.  

I am told that of my emotions I need to regain control. That for my own good I need to be stronger at managing my soul. I find it strange to hear that a few things in my life I will have to rearrange. I hear someone say that finally there will be no need to paint that room in full orange.

I don't understand and I am tired. Why around me are all those machines wired. I need to rest, they say it is for the best. I need to sleep because of the pain so steep. Maybe a few hopes I need to keep but it seems to me it would be better to behave like a sheep.

I tried to distract myself with the surroundings for a while, but loss is a word so vile. I feel like a well with no water maybe that's why I can barely feel the room temperature.

Compression hurts and so is my comprehension when they mention a surgical correction of action. It sounds so cliché but I don't care what they say, I hate compassion in slow motion.

Why do they all wear a stethoscope when life is out of scope ? Do I need to speak to the pope. Will he give me a rope. Hello my name is Carmen. Amen. Nice to meet you, how do you do?

Its gonna be alright, this is not the blight, fuck no I know I am no potato . No I don't react with anger, do you know what it is to experience a sheer terror about what will hold the future.  

Tell me what would you do if you were thrown over a precipice, what would you say if you were victim of a miscarriage of justice.

Leave me alone with your best wishes that you throw at me like a stone. 

It's not easy to admit but what would I give to become an hermit.

A common mistake in literary appreciation is to assume that an author using first-person is always speaking autobiographically. Yet, the best compliment one can pay is, I think, to recognize the strength of the author's words and the images they generate, without making that assumption. I believe you are in an exploratory phase and anticipate you will come through it intact. Cheers, my friend!

Thanks Bill King short but not sweet I am afraid on that one :-)

Great buzz and I surely enjoyed your wisdom Pascal Derrien. For me this is a new style of your writing and it is quite appealing.

doing is better than thinking about doing, that is for sure, but be proud, the outcome of your words collection is a gem

I was attracted to your story by the picture and the title. And you know what, my instincts were right, beautiful post, thanks Pascal Derrien for having given us a different angle.

Orange rooms are overrated. Better be a black sheep than follow the flock. Oh the yin and yang of medicine vs surgery. And if it’s not all right in the end, It’s not the end.

Love the wordplay. I know he's not your number one musician but it really reminds me of a lot of Bob Dylan's early stuff.Talking Talent Cloud blues anyone?
