What? A Song?

Dear Diary,

This post is where Kellianne tries her hand at songwriting! I actually wrote this song many years ago. I often write poetry, but the following  has been my only venture into songwriting.  This is mostly because I do not hold the ability to create music to go with it. I hold much respect for those who can create haunting poetry AND set it to music.

 

DANDELION SEEDS

 

Silver petals fall from your eyes

Into a murky pool of lies.

Golden words trimmed in lace

Fast unravel into space.

Silhouettes of days gone by,

Shapeless pieces of how and why.

Hopes scattered across the floor

Disarrayed, trembling, at the door.

 

(Chorus):

Seems to be

It’s you,

It’s me.

Seems to be

It’s not you,

It’s not me.

Close your eyes and you still can’t see.

 

In a corner staring at me

Silent words echo loudly.

Twisting hands, eyes of dust

In the space between us.

 

(Chorus)

 

(Bridge):

Should I run, or should I stay?

Grasp at the pieces or blow them away?

Blow them away, blow them away.

Like dandelion seeds on a fall day,

Drifting softly to where they will lay.

Blow them away, blow them away.

Gone tomorrow, gone today.

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

  1. So, any chance we could get you to vlog and sing this piece? *grins* Yeah, I feel the pressure just trying to talk normally when vlogging, I don’t think I would try singing on camera, either. It’s been too long, Kellianne. I hope things are well with you and the summer has been treating you well. I’ve had enough of the heat and can’t wait for the fall, but that’s just me. Take care and don’t be a stranger. *waves*

      Great to hear from you 🙂 I am not a vlogger as of yet. But I would need someone to put my words to music before I could even think about singing it. I am a fairly decent singer, but not like amazing or anything like that. Keep in touch, Friend. *waves enthusiastically*

    Kellianne,
    I’m very impressed with your song writing, esp. given that the few songs that I ‘composed’ were basically ones set to nursery rhymes back in elementary school–none that I’d be sharing 🙂
    Cheers, Carrie
