I Threw It All Away – Dylan

•January 18, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I once held her in my arms,
She said she would always stay.
But I was cruel,
I treated her like a fool,
I threw it all away.

Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand,
And rivers that ran through ev’ry day.
I must have been mad,
I never knew what I had,
Until I threw it all away.

Love is all there is, it makes the world go ’round,
Love and only love, it can’t be denied.
No matter what you think about it
You just won’t be able to do without it.
Take a tip from one who’s tried.

So if you find someone that gives you all of her love,
Take it to your heart, don’t let it stray,
For one thing that’s certain,
You will surely be a-hurtin’,
If you throw it all away.


The Nature of Static.

And here amidst

the ticking and

sticking of time,

I work to fill the spaces,

the pauses in speech,

and gaps left sparse; the

discord flowing over

the continental divide.

Even wrapped

in the thick down

padding of your words

I am left but empty.

Solitude pervades

even the gentle

lilt and rhythm

of your speeches.

And so with my words

spilled out upon

your bathroom tile

tied one by one with floss,

I strike the first blow,

so clean and clear, it is

brilliant in its simplicity.

I aim for the heart.
