my today I cannot seize,
will my tomorrow capsize ?

It's been some black some white and all shades of grey to fill in the spaces of time. The clock continues to step a tick and hop a tock away with no recollection of the moment elapsed nor with any signs of forcefed empathy. Life is zip-zot without purpose and time's worth a factor of zilch. With the last binding string cut loose, I drift into emptiness gulfed by loneliness. Ironically though, it's hard to find clarity amidst vast spaces of nothing; going nowhere.

The radio echoed a static buzz which was lesser devil compared to deafening silence. Adjunct to the racing clock is the bottle of scotch gleaming in all its glory. Clear and crisp and at an arms distance, it's the only company i've had all evening. The good friend that it was, it got to me fighting the
cold and leaving no rock unturned... but with every gulp, it seemed to fume at the lackadaisical welcome and that only fogged my brains. Floating in those clouds was a message in response to my S.O.S. and before i knew it, my fingers tickled the num-pad and i heard a voice on the other end of the cord yell... Goooo toooo hell !!! ... and then, for the first time in months the radio boomed...

"No stop signs, speed limit

Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel, gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me round
Hey Satan, payin' my dues
Playing in a rocking band
Hey Momma, look at me
I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the highway to hell
Don't stop me.

And I'm going down, all the way down
I'm on the highway to hell."

Anu Russell has thrown me some bait, and i shall take it... How am i to resist when she showers praise like "writes like a poet! Wait he is one!"... So, here are some easy 25 questions to answer...

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4.
I was hoping this will be a figure page but then here is what line 4 says. "Press pusher C to recall laps." LOL. That's the instruction manual for my Fossil.

rescue me

"Too fast" says a friend mine, but there's no stopping the hands of time while i set sail with the sands of time. Fighting all reason eye-for-eye, i'm trying to not let love pass me by. I tire by sunrise... and fall into the lap of paradise... With shut eyes i still can see, your haloed glow that surrounds me. But that tear in your moist eyes, maims my heart and leaves me paralyzed.

In a moment my senses are zapped, i'm transported to hell's gate from paradise. Floating in the mire of secrets of your heart is the wreckage of many broken dreams... i'm here to be the gentle light that shoos away the dark night.... but i'm only a flicker; careless words can undo me... only careless words can undo me...
