Common Tongue

20120111-203438.jpg
In the language of the common tongue
We weave a strange uncommon tale
In the quiet of a midnight moon
We craft an everlasting spell
In the skin of frail and mortal life
We court an immortality
In the shadow of a thousand lies
We challenge what the truth might be
In the vacancy of happiness
We forge a kind of solitude
In the famine of our ignorance
We innovate a better food
In the winter of Indifference
We light the passion of our flames
In the language of the common tongue
We make ourselves uncommon names

  1. In the winter of Indifference
    We light the passion of our flames…….
    Once again so touching and moving I really really really enjoyed this one VW! Thank you for inspiring me once again 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this one, the rhythm flows so well and it speaks so honestly! And I’m so happy to see a new post from you, it’s been a while and I was starting to miss your words!

  4. We make ourselves uncommon names.

    I’ll carry that line with me today. Beautiful and heart breaking as always!

    • Thank you, Sarah. Is there such a thing as common? I dare say we are each a bit unique, and I hope you continue to strive to make an uncommon life for yourself. Different is good 🙂

  5. I know you have already heard it, but, “In the shadow of a thousand lies
    We challenge what the truth might be,” is an very deep and profound play on words. No one but you, could write this well.
    Hugs, xx

  7. Something lies in being different
    Standing high above the sheep-like crowd
    Speaking yourself out loud and proud
    The world grows large
    And unique grows small
    Individuality is on downfall
    Express yourself
    Every way you can
    Make your name known
    In every land

    Whenever I need to write simply for the sake of it, I come to your blog
    Thank you 🙂

  8. You’ve already heard this before, VW, but I also loved the flow, the rhythm and the word play. “In the skin of frail and mortal life We court an immortality” I’ve never read about immortality in a more beautiful manner~Another great masterpiece, my friend~
