A Bathful Of Rubies

Mental Health, Random poetry Add comments



Today’s is a familiar tale of a tortured soul, and her subsequent demise. Cue violin music, moody lighting, long dark hair, Emo clothing…

Standing  Wash  Increase  Stick  Oatmeal  Disappear  Fairies  Clip  Bath


I’m standing alone,

Wash the tears from my face

Increase of anxieties

Stick bad thoughts in place.

Your face over oatmeal

Makes hope disappear,

Away with the fairies?

You clip my wings here.


A bath fills with rubies:

A bottle of pills

A knife flashes silver

And my heart is stilled.


I was throwing out vocals for hubby’s songwriting yesterday, as he had asked me to, for part of his birthday present (inexpensive experience gift, and all that).  It was so much fun!! There was no set tune for either song, so I made it up as I went along.  He has about two years’ record of collaboration on the Kompoz site, so there has been a warm reception to our session, which is very flattering!!

We used a cheap mic from Amazon, with half the echo on, and made the MP3s through Audacity

Rust Belts is my attempt at soul, Isabella Belladonna is a more a nod to Leonard Cohen (if you click the links, you can access the songs through the thumbnail pic on the top left of the screen you get to). 

I just sang hubby’s lyrics the way I heard them in my head, and you’ll know (if you are a regular reader) that is a rather random place to spring from… 😉

Hope you enjoy Hubby’s hard work!!
