Time though is quickly running away from me. I see the world now passing as if I was on the TGV. A future which had once been so expansive is now not so much. The time has come for me to do that which I was supposed. It's time to unlock that door and see what's left inside.
It can not wait any longer.
It is now.

though I never had it
feels as if it was torn from my very fabric
i can feel myself bleeding out
with no urge to stop it
the cold comes soon
a now welcome old friend
all that mattered
now lies elsewhere
never again to be
within my reach

My heart stopped beating last night
It had only begun truly beating not so long ago
But I had become accustomed to the familiar patter
Now it has gone quiet
I continue to breathe
I still feel the need to eat
But there’s no passion behind it
I can still walk
But even as I write this
There’s a cold washing over me
A darkness descending
The colors, so recently revealed to me
Are returning to gray
Yet within that dire world
There is refuge
From that which stopped my heart

Seriously? That's the problem in Iraq....not the fact that we shouldn't have gone in the first place (that's not just on Cheney and Bush, but also the democrats and republicans who fearfully gave the President carte blanche after 9/11 and the press which neglected for three years to ask a significant follow up question of anyone in government)...not the fact that we had no plan for occupation....not that we had too few soldiers to do the job...not that we've created a haven for terrorists, a training ground for new ones and a lost generation in Iraq that, ultimately will grow up with little infrastructure and looking for someone to be angry at...the problem clearly isn't that we're fighting a war against a group of insurgents, in their own country (which you cannot win) or that we're fighting two groups (Sunni/Shiite) that are also busy fighting each other (and who, other than the Kurds, are big fans of the Kurds in the region?)...the problem is clearly Congress.
If only the Democrats would walk goose step with the administration, then those bullets shot by snipers would harmlessly pass over our soldiers heads...if only Congress would embrace the flawed plans of our President the IEDs would implode never wounding, never killing....if only Congress could understand how their doubt was responsible for putting tens of billions of U-S taxpayer dollars in the hands of the terrorists we were there to fight...if only Congress would stop thinking for themselves our soldiers would be getting the treatment they deserve when they return.
Wow...guess I turned myself around there. Our problems in Iraq are all the fault of Congress, just as the Vice-President says. I'm going to go have a talk with my neighbor...he's foolish enough to think the soldiers would be safer if they just came home. I'll tell him that it's talk like that that's getting them killed over there. What a bastard.

ZURICH, Switzerland (March 2) - What began as a routine training exercise almost ended in an embarrassing diplomatic incident after a company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.
According to Swiss daily Blick, the 170 infantry soldiers wandered 1.2 miles across an unmarked border into the tiny principality early Thursday before realizing their mistake and turning back.
A spokesman for the Swiss army confirmed the story but said that there were unlikely to be any serious repercussions for the mistaken invasion.
"We've spoken to the authorities in Liechtenstein and it's not a problem," Daniel Reist told The Associated Press.
Officials in Liechtenstein also played down the incident.
Interior ministry spokesman Markus Amman said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers, who were carrying assault rifles but no ammunition. "It's not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something," he said.
Liechtenstein, which has about 34,000 inhabitants and is slightly smaller than Washington D.C., doesn't have an army.

Highly recommend it....30 songs...many just a minute to two minutes long....not all great, but some very close to that...especially Listen to the Radio and the Beatle inspired Fading into Obscurity. Go. Buy it. Don't be a dumbass.

Then again, maybe he'll prove me wrong. Kidding. I'll watch it just the same.
