Matthew F. Blowers Iii - Guitar, Vocals - That Wall Of Shame! -(satirical look or is it???) The Wall Of Shame. (The next Trump Towers?) Let’s build us a wall about 20 foot tall for all them illegal immigrants trying to pay us a call….. Run it down in the ground about ten feet or so electrify the top so they got no place to go Let’s put up some towers with guards day and night then if they try to blast through it they will be shot on sight. Let’s build a huge morgue for all those who failed to scale, with a large waiting room where their relatives can wail…ail ail….. Did you ever stop to wonder what that wall’s gonna do, who’s gonna slave in the hot sun picking vegetables and fruit? We can hire all the rednecks who demanded it be built to work 10 hours a day before it all rots and wilts…. Otherwise we’ll sit and worry as produce prices climb till we’re all getting scurvy as fresh nutrition declines When you build walls of hate Like they did in Berlin we’ll just sit around and wait for the problems begin. Mexico will deny any U.S. tourists, and you’ll be stuck at that wall pounding it with your fist. Imagine the scenery in your vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking lovely views out. so think about the costs if Trump gets his way, cheap labor will vanish and we’re all gonna pay we’ll all have to pay……. for his policies of hate! (spoken-) "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, “NO!” let’s build a wall around Ellis island so that no one gets in! Let’s build us some internment camps where U.S. Muslims can stay forever and a day like Guantanamo Bay! Imagine your scenic views on vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking everything out. And for all of you that want it why don’t you donate a brick they’ll engrave your names on it you can be proud of it But you won’t find my name there amidst the rednecks and hicks of course that’s just my opinion if you don’t like it………. “Tough Shit !!!” Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

That Wall Of Shame! -(satirical look or is it???) The Wall Of Shame. (The next Trump Towers?) Let’s build us a wall about 20 foot tall for all them illegal immigrants trying to pay us a call….. Run it down in the ground about ten feet or so electrify the top so they got no place to go Let’s put up some towers with guards day and night then if they try to blast through it they will be shot on sight. Let’s build a huge morgue for all those who failed to scale, with a large waiting room where their relatives can wail…ail ail….. Did you ever stop to wonder what that wall’s gonna do, who’s gonna slave in the hot sun picking vegetables and fruit? We can hire all the rednecks who demanded it be built to work 10 hours a day before it all rots and wilts…. Otherwise we’ll sit and worry as produce prices climb till we’re all getting scurvy as fresh nutrition declines When you build walls of hate Like they did in Berlin we’ll just sit around and wait for the problems begin. Mexico will deny any U.S. tourists, and you’ll be stuck at that wall pounding it with your fist. Imagine the scenery in your vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking lovely views out. so think about the costs if Trump gets his way, cheap labor will vanish and we’re all gonna pay we’ll all have to pay……. for his policies of hate! (spoken-) "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, “NO!” let’s build a wall around Ellis island so that no one gets in! Let’s build us some internment camps where U.S. Muslims can stay forever and a day like Guantanamo Bay! Imagine your scenic views on vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking everything out. And for all of you that want it why don’t you donate a brick they’ll engrave your names on it you can be proud of it But you won’t find my name there amidst the rednecks and hicks of course that’s just my opinion if you don’t like it………. “Tough Shit !!!” Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

The Agony And The Ecstasy Audacity III The agony and the ecstasy have now become as one the ecstasy of making love to you and the agony of what I’ve done How can a man be in love with two women keeping the truth of what’s shared with them hidden taking the pleasures they’ve trustfully given in an act that cannot be forgiven. Turning two contracts of marriage’ into a huge miscarriage, and now I’m facing one husbands gun….. As I look in his eyes and feel that barrel that lies pressed against my heart with eager hate I see the wounds that I’ve caused in that split second pause but my regret for what I’ve done is too late. My hands are bound to a chair he captured me in a snare as I was leaving his wife’s warm bed, then his lips bent to my ear and filled my last breath with fear with the four venomous words that he said…. “Enjoy Hell’s Lonely Despair!” Then his finger indexed and filed away all my sex with his dear wife in a cold morgue drawer, six bullets punctured my heart as I felt my soul depart to a place I’ll share forevermore. Nothing but darkness around me stretching outward endlessly I walked for weeks to find someone but this place only holds me in a cold loveless world Hell has no fires that burn this will be my lonely limbo from which I’ll never return…… Just agony with no ecstasy a fitting punishment for me cause I was greedy with love and now my soul has been shoved into a loveless Hell eternally…… Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Succubus! movie finis Succubus! You scratch your nails across my windows, nightly you scream outside my door and now I hear your high heels slapping staccato taps across my floors then your spirit makes it’s entrance from the absence of your tomb and though I still can’t see your tear stained face I can smell your sweet perfume….. Then you press your ectoplasm against me smothering my flesh bringing me icy cold orgasms as our souls converge and mesh…. I know I promised you forever but I did not realize I would be haunted by your vengeance because my love wound up just lies. You took your life when we divorced you did not even leave a note, but now you’re sharing all your agony and making me death’s cruel scapegoat. till death do us part was our promise babe but now I’m suffering cause I slipped and strayed, I never cared about her anyway but now you’re going to make me pay. My pistol keeps appearing on my bed sheets every night from it’s locked drawer and I’m fearing it’s the way to make things right…… Till death do us part was our promise made but now I’m a doubting Thomas Babe…. I’m suffering because I slipped and strayed, I never cared much for her anyway but now you’re going to make me pay. but now you’re going to male me pay…… Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Grafitti From My Mind! movie 0002 In the convoluted cauliflower of my synapsing brain lie memories both good and bad some that please and some that pain.. Moments that I knew that I am still quite happy to reclaim. and other moments that still bring Godawful pain. But there ain't no delelte button anywhere upon my skin and I can't erase all the downer loads that my blues put in Sometimes I have to bleed my soul in dirges filled with rhymes. until I'm feeling fine, feeling fine ...feeling fine It's just a fact of life, we create what we become.... in a hell of our own making or a heaven to come....... Perhaps those synapses that fire our brains long after we all die will still remain charging us for our crimes or bringing moments Sublime. for all of time.... Grafitti From My Mind!

"Treasure Your Love.-" MP3- Audacity -movie- Published on Jan 26, 2017 Loneliness is a state of being empty of all that matters it comes when you’re old and it’s no fun when your young and it runs with your tears that splatter. Whether homely or handsome loneliness holds a ransom to pay when your heart is shattered, Eating holes in your soul it leaves you no place to go when your emotions and dreams have been battered. Even the most beautiful all over the world suffer loneliness just like you…. enduring heartbreak and sorrow and they face a tomorrow where their all going to grow old too, grow old too... It’s a fact of our lives even with husbands and wives love can change to apathy it’s true Loneliness is just a lesson on how much love is a blessing cherish it in everything you do. But you know loneliness too must always face an -end that‘s found in the last three letters of fri-end which can turn into a boyfriend or girlfriend who spend every minute with you till loneliness is condemned. to go off in a sputter yet still turn and utter that someday soon he’ll be back again. The most beautiful people all over the world they suffer loneliness like you…. enduring heartbreak and sorrow and then they face a tomorrow where they’re all going to grow old too, It’s a fact of our lives even with husbands and wives love can change to apathy it’s true Loneliness is a lesson on how love’s such a great blessing always let your love be faithful and true…. cherish it in everything you do…….

Morning Has Broken So Why The Hell Fix It Movie Finis Morning has broken so why the hell fix it. each days a long stumble till night falls again. my whole worlds a tumble, ungraceful without you... only my steady dreams bring remembrances when... Back when mornings were blessed by your warmness beside me, and my days were encompassed in the sheer joy of you, every night fell with warms lips enveloping passion in a less clumsy world where all our dreams came true. Each step that I take when I rise from my bed, takes me further away from the paradise we knew and your scent it still lingers in the pillows beside me, greeting me every morning, haunting me all day too. Then the night staggers in as I stare at the ceiling, counting all of the stucco points hanging above. then I count endless sheep till I'm finally asleep, and back in the arms of the girl that I loved Morning has broken so why the hell fix it, My days a long trip till the night falls once more, time no longer has meaning as I slowly am weaning My heart from its shattering by a girl I adored. Morning has broken so why the hell fix it, it matches my heart since you left me behind, let it bleed through my window, in a bright yellow puddle, let it break hard forever through the slats of my blinds, why the hell should I fix it when it's been so unkind. when it's been so unkind.........

On Smoking & First Love. -Movie First love like your first cigarette it starts off hot then burns down slow with a racing heart it steals your breath they’re a lot alike you know… Gracing your lips and fingertips with smoking hot desires requiring a gentle grip as you savor passions fires Your first girl is the filter for your masculinity she gives a sweet and smother taste and sets your tension free. both tease addictively. Soon cravings will consume you to have more of it each day but whether nicotine or sweet perfume there’s a price you have to pay…. First loves are just a sampling a glimpse of what’s to be, a lesson for your younger years a love they call “Puppy” And cigarettes briefly address Life’s cruel anxieties but soon enough they bring duress cause you can’t let them be. They’re full of similarities they both keep you compelled but first loves usually fade away they will not harm your health.. So if I had my druthers over smokes or first time lovers. I‘d choose to skip the nicotine for a girl whose like no other. Who will guide me through my innocence and give me much to cherish over cigarettes that might bring me too many ways too perish! First love like your first cigarette it starts off hot then burns down slow with a racing heart it steals your breath they’re a lot alike you know… Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

The Artonotes-Movie- By Pierre Rosique & Matthew F Blowers III Published on Jan 18, 2017 If I could ride a guitar string D, G. C, A or maybe E stretched high beyond the galaxy.... To distant worlds, like eighth notes hurled beyond what's atmospherical changing me from what's grown stagnant into something far more lyrical Or simply catch a huge blast from some massive sax till I am flung by wails propelling me out of dimensions I have known into the fifth where I’d be blown away by entering a zone Where I would see with jaundiced eyes, that my craft holds no compromise that music knows no boundaries what encounters there would be abandoning all that's earthly and find unheard of stellar notes that grip with such intensity a humble music man like me. Soon I would dance and freely float in a thousand times less gravity as my brain absorbs what masters wrote and turns it into mental totes while my flesh becomes an Artonote. My skin etched microscopically with all their musicalities my fingertips graced surgically playing anything that’s handed me plus blueprints of the most bizarre new instruments that make guitars and keyboardsrendered all sub par, stellar instruments that break the rules and make ours look like cave men’s tools Then as an Artonote set loose and homeward bound their new recruit with aliens cheering me as I go to introduce what we don’t know, turning all who are still earthy in to Arto-note-worthy’s as the music we play all goes topsy-turvy Of course for now it’s all just a dream created from Rosique’s great song theme But maybe someday when I must die my soul will soar the endless skies as an Artonote seeking the prize of music that will end my cries for more then just the standard notes used endlessly and then rewrote for brand new riffs that hypnotize, with sounds we have not cannibalized. with harmonies that blend the wails of Jupiter’s storms with meteor tails a sizzling hot new way to sail the universe beyond the pale as aliens dance beneath my flights their planets rocked with sheer delight at a passing star in the distant night. at a passing star in the distant night...... in the distant night Synthesizer, music & arrangement by Pierre Rosique lyrics and melody by Matthew F.

East of Omaha -Movie of the Week 0006 Love affairs are a carnival they set up camp in your heart... bright and beautiful and you are drawn to the colors, the sounds, the scents the tastes.. all the exquisite illicit tastes but then one night in the wee hours of the mourn they break camp and leave, offering you nothing but a barren field plus the debris of what was and is no more. Loneliness is a freak show a stage of one where it feels as if the whole world all can see your flaws. It's just carnies tearing down the carnal ride you were on, dismantling your rush to the skies. it's a cotton candy or a caramel apple stick emptied of the sweetness devoured by a hunger that dissipates and disposes of all of your dreams and just moves on. I wish for you only true love with no affairs attached nor lonely interims. True love is a castle of solid rock, strong, steadfast and sure and not penetrated by any other. Anything less is a fly by night facade easily disassembled or a lonely existence equal to a bearded lady in a trailer on a back lot east of Omaha.... after all of her so called admirers have gone chuckling home. have gone chuckling home............ Author's notes: May you wander its elegant halls and sweeping staircases to the heavens and experience the granduer of true love's finest accomadations. Art~Whimsicallly Yours studio Matthew F.

Remorse Code-( Bones)- Movie Published on Jan 13, 2017 If bones could write an epitaph Oh, how coffins would rattle in despair, Arlington would be a cacophony of calcium, rapping out in re-morse code the pain of dying oh, so young. Like Micheal's bones a meteor from his unfulfilled dreams lying dormant in the wreckage for twenty-eight years, far more time then he had lived. Tenderly dug out and boxed with reverence then cradled in a flag and brought home. Oh, how his spirit must have ached for the soil of his birth, from that stench of vegetative matter, in the spoils of Cambodia, after forbidden incursions, that took his very soul. What poetry his bones could write, what utter despair, penned in blood and his heroic stand Long forgotten, Songs that his lips will never sing still echo in the hearts of all those who loved him. and somewhere his guitar still waits its sound hole in a fixed scream, of silence far too long........ "My Country tis of thee, Sweet land of Liberty.... For thee I bleed. Art~Whimsically Yours studio Matthew F. Blowers III-(c)-2017

Stray Cats! the movie! Stray cats are lean and mean they’re seldom prone to fat they like to howl in every alleyway till folks yell “Scat!” and there’s millions of them out there cause they’ve all begat… but if you ever try to catch one they’re just way to fast.. The only time I ever cornered one he hissed and spat. They use the bumpers of your car to scratch their backs and they do a lot of dumpster diving for their snacks, if your trash can lid is loose your yard will wind up full of trash and when the cities try to cull them it takes too much cash. But there is one form of ugly puss that’s worse than that, and they’re seldom lean or mean that’s why they’re called Fat Cats, they like to prowl all over Washington D.e-C.eit where they steal a portion of your taxes and your hard earned pay. There’s a whole lot of them out there all just getting rich coughing up some hairball programs with their lobbyists…. but if you ever try to catch one their just way to slick that’s just the nature of the game we all call politics. But unlike stray cats we have a way that we can track all the useless things perpetuated by Fat Cats, then we have to vote them out when it’s election time cause their service to our country’s nothing but a crime I’ll take a stray cat any day over a Fat Cat’s grief but the apathy of voters is beyond belief Seven million failed to vote they never even showed up and that kind of attitude is like a cat’s throw up! So don’t be howling like a pussy ‘bout the state of things If you ignore the voting booths you ought to move to Beijing they don’t have too many stray cats cause they all get ate, while the Fat cats who rule China dine off fine blue plates. Any democracies a mockery you’d fit right in. so take your apathy and give the orient a spin. yeah, take your damn apathy to China where you don’t ever need to win.

On The Flipside. On that sacred flight when my death transpires let the sky above become a funeral pyre, set with oranges, crimson reds and golden gleams, as my soul ascends much higher Beyond earth so emptied of my life so full, as my spirit exits from my flesh grown cool, into that deep inkwell till I emerge again and my spirit lifts a pen... Chorus- Will we all write songs on the flip side, where our talent knows no bounds way beyond the struggles of our earthly souls... creatingf far more heavenly sounds, sung by choirs of angels under God's loving glance where forever children gonna sing and dance will we all be stars, playing glorious guitars in our victorious .... second chance. But if my soul is deemed unworthy, let the skies above be hung with blizzards wailing and bitter snows prevailing as I take that final plunge, towards a hell of my own making where my oldest friends have gone, to that land of the forsaken, death’s darkest inkwell with no dawn. Chorus- Where we’ll all write songs on that flip side where the devil claims his dues, bent in flames of passion, every face grown ashen as we sing the saddest blues, on electric guitars that fry our flesh, while the demons dance with glee, playing our hottest hits over those blazing moge pits, where the masses writhe ........eternally. Bridge- We all have choices when we lift our voices singing the words our hearts create, will your first concert be in eternity, where your fans camp out at heaven's gate.... or will you entertain demons, guarding millions, all screaming when Hell welcomes you to play your first date. Chorus- I hope we’ll all be writing songs on the flipside sung by choirs of angels under God's charmed glance where forever children gonna sing and dance, where we’ll all be stars, playing fantastic guitars in our glorious second chance. in a heavenly happenstance. ArtWhimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.Blowers III ~©~2017 See you all on the flipside.

The Wall Of Shame. (The next Trump Towers?) Let’s build us a wall about 20 foot tall for all them illegal immigrants trying to pay us a call….. Run it down in the ground about ten feet or so electrify the top so they got no place to go Let’s put up some towers with guards day and night then if they try to blast through it the will be shot on sight. Let’s build a huge morgue for all those who failed to scale, with a large waiting room where their relatives can wail…ail ail….. Did you ever stop to wonder what that wall’s gonna do, who’s gonna slave in the hot sun picking vegetables and fruit? We can hire all the rednecks who demanded it be built to work 10 hours a day before it all rots and wilts…. Otherwise we’ll sit and worry as produce prices climb till we’re all getting scurvy as fresh nutrition declines When you build walls of hate Like they did in Berlin we’ll just sit around and wait for the problems begin. Mexico will deny any U.S. tourists, and you’ll be stuck at that wall pounding it with your fist. Imagine the scenery in your vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking lovely views out. so think about the costs if Trump gets his way, cheap labor will vanish and we’re all gonna pay we’ll all have to pay……. for his policies of hate! (spoken-) "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, “NO!” let’s build a wall around Ellis island so that no one gets in! Let’s build us some internment camps where U.S. Muslims can stay forever and a day like Guantanamo Bay! Imagine your scenic views on vacations down south Just that big ugly wall blocking everything out. And for all of you that want it why don’t you donate a brick they’ll engrave your names on it you can be proud of it But you won’t find my name there amidst the rednecks and hicks of course that’s just my opinion if you don’t like it………. “Tough Shit !!!” Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Lyrics
Chagrin Falls, Ohio
If You Were A Song.... I'd Sing It- (remastered version) Published on Jan 7, 2017 A hopelessly romantic love song. If you were a song I'd sing it until you became a Grammy, sharing all our love did, with a couple grandkids, in the style of Sinatra or Sammy. If you were a note, you'd wouldn't be flat or sharp, oh, so lovely you'd sail to the top of the charts the world's finest soprano blessing listeners hearts hitting the highest string stretched out on the end of a harp. Chorus- But you are a girl, with most perfect lips and I'm just a dreamer whose run out of scripts.. seems my talents fall short when you come into view, and this song is no tribute to the beauty of you. My pen will not blend with thoughts in my head, and my guitar falls silent strummed by fingers of lead, my lyrics...atmospheric. are all lost in space.. while I'm trying to place love for me on your face. If you were a poem I would spend all my days, reading only one work touring endless cafes, folks would run for the door at my tedious praise, of what they'd all heard before, while they sipped their lattes. Perhaps I should paint you, but could I curb my desire With you posing for me setting my canvas on fire seems I've run out of ways to portray how you'll be. my Mona lisa.. my Wordsworth love's sweetest symphony Chorus- Because you're are a girl, with the most perfect lips and I'm just a dreamer whose run out of scripts seems my talents fall short when you come into view, and this song is no tribute to the beauty of you. but it's all I can offer just to say I love you.

Bully For You !! - (re mastered movie) Published on Jan 1, 2017 If you're deemed different lower forms of life will try to suck God's given nectar's from your very soul, They will only see your thorns and they will wither you with scorn, but your are beautiful. Like a rare exotic flower, fragile as an orchid's petals, but you will endure... Chase your dreams and let them eat your dust, be the only person that you trust, and let them act like fools.... Chorus- I say "Bully for you," you should know your pain is just their insecurity, when they become adults, they'll find that all their faults, will never let them be, when high school days are done they're gonna find a bigger world where they're no longer number one, They'll face rejections that are cruel where bullying's a useless tool for folks that others shun. Walk tall, and hold your head up high, don't ever look them in the eye or show them any fear, never let anything they say put a damper on your day, soon they'll all disappear....... they're just gnats that buzz around the sweetest students ever found, because they have no sweetness they can call their own, ignore their cyber-bullying, report them all anonymously, soon they'll leave you alone... Chorus- Keep saying..."Bully for you," cause you know their pain is their insecurity, when they become adults, they'll find that all their faults, will never let them be, when high school days are done they'll find a bigger world where they're no longer number one, facing rejections that are cruel where bullying's a useless tool for folks that others shun. If you're deemed different lower forms of life will try to suck God's given nectar's from your very soul, they will only see your thorns and though they'll wither you with scorn, you'll still be beautiful. you'll still be beautiful..............

An Island Of Two ! An Island of Two When our lips at last meet for the very first time the world will vanish completely turning flesh into rhyme. Spnning onward without us as we sail far above past the voids that we once knew, into heavenly love... Chorus- Let us dance on loves companionship, where hearts go when they are broken, floating hand in hand to the Isle of two. where one is never spoken, on a pristine beach where the fruits of love, grow abundant everywhere, there's a paradise just waiting there for the two of us to share. When our bodies mold together embraced in a blissful union, time will slow as we both know it, clocks no longer will have meaning, day and night will merge together, and be lost in passions rhythms, with its smooth entrancing beat. Stars in distant space will tumble to collide in sparkling dazzles, leaving both of us quite breathless, on our most ecstatic trip, sailing love's companionship. sailing love's companionship.

First Love Revisted Often- ( Movie Finis) Her eyes cornflower blue still haunt the years cannot erase the softness of her lovely gaze when I told her of my love that day Her lips so petulant and pink bent with a smile that held me mesmerized as she realized that I might be her guy warming my soul with joy and sweet surprise. I caught her tender hints of love beneath her shyest depths and when her face drew oh, so close to mine I could not catch my breath And as I bent to kiss her her eyes closed as if she knew my very next intention and her breath caught too But just before our lips knew touch, as pairs first kisses share a sound it broke the stillness of that sultry August air…. Her Mother calling out her name she backed away and headed home and I was left in willowed shade just 12 years old....alone I know I can't recapture that electric moment when we almost kissed and what we missed will never come again Chorus- Young love so fleeting lingers often in our memories, and that endless aching seldom softens ....what will never come to be, true love eternally ~ Love moved along without us and the circumstances brought no chance to ever duplicate sweet love lessons...untaught. sweet love lessons untaught….

De Ja Blues !-(a movie)- t orn from thoughts when I grow old. Maybe I'm still there, stretched out in a straw hat, chewing on that stalk of grass under a monkey-ball tree. In the summer of my ninth year, Just digging the shade. Maybe that wish I made to be an adult when the world was a fresh baked cookie barely nibbled came true. Maybe it's only been a few seconds since I mumbled my desires to be free of the awkwardness of childhood, the ignorance of innocence, and that aching for the girl next door. Some disyant kin to Suspended Animation how time flies by yet we are, unaware of it's passing. Maybe all these years I've carried are but a blink away from that backyard tree and me, studying sun-dappled weaves of the straw inside my hat that covers my face...... As apple pie scented breezes call me back to my Momma's kitchen for a warm wedge of time long forgotten. But then again, Maybe not, as a whimsical smile wrinkles, then creases My much too wise of a face, to ever play make believe again. In this Summer of my 69th year trying to avoid the spade Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. blowers III (c)-2016 credit Pixabay for the tree pic.

Medieval Woes movie Frailty Thy name is my soul quivering on the brink of love lost my heart hammers A mallet on cold bronze till you spurned my beseeching seeking castles beyond my means somewhere in the lofty clouds above I am but a common urn holding the ashes of my passion..... She is my Goddess with downcast lashes, denying me access to her most heavenly eyes. I would fall on my sword but my heart is already torn asunder, thus I will vanish away much like my spirit has faded, into the mere shadow of what once was a man.... Seeking exquisite love and suffering cruel consequences. ..cruel consequences. Frailty Thy name is my soul Medieval Woes. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Just A Little Background- (movie) She gazed stricken at her lover's back, her soul cut to the core his hands thrown high in frustration, as he vanished through the door frame of her heart. Her eyes misted like stained glass, in a winter blast, slowly emptying of all the adoration she once worshipped him with. She wanted him back, and front, but only emptiness graced her darkness, her first love became a cursed love, as she curled into a fetal position wishing only to be born again. born again.... She emerged from the womb of her grief, days later as a much wiser woman, and when she later saw him approaching, on a sunny boulevard they once frequented, Her scorn flashed in a glancing blow and then suddenly she gave him her own back. It was the last he ever saw of her, as she returned his cruelty with a strong, proud distancing of what he had left behind. what he'd left behind.... Leaving him to understand that she's got back.... She's got back! Art~Whimsically yours studio Matthew F. Blowers III (c)-2016 credit pics to Pixabay.com

In the Wee Hours Of A Carnival Encamped - They gather nightly when the marks depart after the rides shut down and the lights dim low where they huddle in a trailer far from all the rest that offers healing for thier eyes of woe...... Some hobble others are scurried or wheeled on their way to their rendevous to play a form of strip poker each hoping to win a piece of their dreams come true. The booty for each game involves body parts!! a winning hand would improve their deformity plastic poker chips becoming plastiic surgery....... One monstrous Hump at last sliced from his back setting him free at last, Radial Liposuction for a 500 lb. girl named Sadie, Amputations for that man with 3 arms and 12 toes Plus permanent hair removal for that bearded lady. They all had stakes in what was holding them there much like the stakes in their canvas tent prisons where the general public came to leer and laugh and make lewd comments about their afflictions KNOBBY THE GNARLED MAN with multiple tumors sought chemo- -therapy and skillful extraction and ROADMAP the man tattooed from head to toe was seeking lasers to remove his distractions Nightly they consulted Kings and Queens hoping for royal flushes of their varied woes. GEEKS and FREAKS and OUTCASTS seeking common dreams Beyond that midway in their twisted Wonderland. They gather nightly when the marks depart after the rides shut down and the lights dim lowt to huddle in that trailer far from all the rest in that Twisted Wonderland they've come to know....... that won't let go......

Innocence Revisited movie That little boy in me leaps freely like the flight of the wildest tumbleweed back through my memories Giggling with glee as I climb back down my family tree to a place I’ve always longed to be playing with her in the meadows of Maybeland where no one ever grows old…… Where the sun is always ten years warm.. Sharing twenty toes all splayed in Spring’s fresh puddles we can wade in… over steaming concrete plains sailing paper boats… in the gutter’s moats that reflect the distant clouds that float in the mirrors of fallen rain…. of fallen rain…. Holding hands as we both dash across cornflower blue forget-me-nots chasing all our grown up doldrums into long forsaken afterthoughts as our childhood we reclaim Sharing endless hours of nothing else to do but just have fun laughing at our silly times renewed in our long lost youthful rendevous lost within her eyes so baby blue knowing now my love for her was true she was my chosen one With breathless fear and sweet elation I kiss her on her dainty cheek then run away before her blush breaks full back through the years that oh, so cruelly pull me back to where she isn’t mine now lost to me for all of time….. for all of time. Till that little boy in me leaps freely like the flight of the wildest tumbleweed back through my memories back through my memories back through my memories Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Motel 666! Movie finis Just another cup of coffee and I’m on my way to another lonely day….. four sugars and a cream cause my life’s not as sweet when you’re far away. thousands of miles still lay before me as I chase my American dream All across the U.S.A. I’m longing for six feet of a rumpled bed in your loving arms but I’m stuck here instead wailing my blues for pay in endless cafes. Chorus~ Absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder it just tortures your soul as you wander squandering love for Motel six Motel 666 and all my dreaming becomes demons on lonely nights that leave me screaming for a taste of your lips….. I understand the pain of men who went off to war, and now I know what they were fighting for not just for freedom but for a chance that fate would lead them back to that gal they adored Sepa-rations holds rations that can’t satisfy the hole in one’s heart thast grows as big as the sky till they are back with the love they had to leave behind, sharing what they’ve been denied. Chorus~ Absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder it just tortures your soul as you wander Motel six turns into Motel 666 and all my dreaming becomes demons on lonely nights that leave me screaming for a taste of your lips….. Tonight I’m Longing for a taste of your lips….. in my hell of motel 666 Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-©-2016

Breakfast With Mary -(adult Content)- Movie I met a girl who was hotter then the flames of hell and why she’d picked me was a secret she would never tell, she inhaled six shots of whiskey then she gave me her keys, and said, You can have a little loving if you drive for me……..” I took her to her pace on the outskirts of town it was an isolates bungalow with no neighbors around, then we got down to business Like all lovers do, and it wasn’t till much later that I learned the truth That she collected living dildo’s much to my surprise and she made me a part of what she fanta-thighs-ed her limbs wrapped tight around my head I couldn’t hear her sighs, a late night dinner with Mary I was just one of her guys. Now I don’t mind being used but I was used to being, a guy who liked to seduced but this girl had me believing that it’s a whole lot better skipping the cell phone exchange with a beautiful gal whose got the sex all arranged. So if your ever in a bar and someone hotter than hades offers you a little loving you better not tell her“Maybe” cause she’ll down six shots of whiskey and then give you her keys, to a late night dinner with a girl named Mary….. and a late breakfast too oh ,what a night it will…ill ill be.

N E W L A N G S Y N E ! ! movie A New Lang Syne II I like the New Year It’s like a fresh beer, it’s a whisper of hope as the old year just disappears I like the baby in a diaper who replaces that old man whose retiring cause he’s put up with all that he can I like my party blower and my hat Just going crazy I get down with that my girl who promises she won’t get fat on next years food,. every new year is an interlude. I miss the sounds of Guy Lombardo whose big band music was a marvel and I miss the countdown with Dick Clark Seacrest can never beat the patriarch of all those new years that I knew. And I miss my friends and family no longer here with me beneath the confetti there absence makes me blue….. But all my old acquaintances won’t be forgot and never brought to mind… their with me all the time I like my first date with Jan. though she is colder than ice, she has a whole lot of friends who will be twice as nice. like April May and June who simply make my heart swoon just knowing that in four months they’ll be coming round soon! I like sipping champagne and drowning last years pain, and though the new years holds a hangover! I can’t refrain… and I like kissing my girl when it’s twelve o’clock she’s got a tongue like a demon and she’s so damned hot. So raise a toast with me too what has yet to be we’ve got a whole year to uncover it with all it’s glee and please be here next year when we all kiss it goodbye In a party hat and blower Please don’t wear a tie. as the old year flies by, and we all get incredibly High……. and we all get incredibly High……….

Innocence Undefiled a Christmas story movie I remember Christmas eves as the most sleepless night I ever knew when I was just a child. filled with sweet anticipation of my presents packed in Santa’s sleigh brought my biggest smiles Listening for the pitter-patter on the roof over my head of 8 reindeer landing gently with their very heavy sled Innocence undefiled. With no sugar plums dancing in my head cause my mind was filled instead with all I’d asked Santa to bring knowing most of them would never be cause my family knew some poverty yet still my hopes took wings Chorus- But Christmas morning brought the usual underwear P.J. ‘s and a sock half full, of hard candies meant to suck…. with 5 kids to please at Christmas time I got a couple of toys from the five and dime but it was just enough….. cause I realized even as a boy that these gifts brought both my parents joy wrapped in newspaper with love…. Love that I will carry till I’m old worth much more than money, toys or gold cause gifts are just some stuff. And I remember when the New Year passed how sad I used to be when our tree was cast on the curb out by the street dripping just a few stray icicles left to fade away in the bitter cold till it vanished that same week, But it taught me all things beautiful should be cherished more cause their temporal cause soon they’re gone away Like my mom and dad who are no longer here both their lives were curbed and we all wept tears on those tragic days, Chorus- and now I’m wishing Christmas would bring the usual underwear P.J. ‘s and a sock half full, of hard candies meant to suck…. with 5 kids to please at Christmas time and a couple of toys from the five and dime it would be more than just enough! cause I’ve realized ever since I was a boy that these gifts brought both my parents joy wrapped in newspaper with love…. Love that I wish once more I could hold worth much more than money, toys or gold cause gifts are just some stuff Love that I will share until I’m old. worth much more than money, toys or gold, and that’s my Christmas story told….

Songwriter Notes. This Song will be considered by many women as very harsh but it is nowhere near as harsh as Donald Trump’s slanderous, scornful, dehumanizing and obscene attacks on women over many years. Crucify my song with negative comments if you wish, you who voted for this poisonous man to win, and crucify me on a cross of Woman’s rights as well for I can take the pounding of your polished nails far easier than listening to the pounding on endless coffins of long dead women who are in a spirited rage over all the women who voted for a Male chauvinistic PIG. You Have Spit On Her Grave!!???!!! Susanne B. Anthony’s frail bones are pounding against the lid of her coffin remorse code that won’t soften propelled by her righteous rages after 53 percent of women who voted have torn her from histories pages and spit on her grave.. 26 percent of Latino women voted for Donald Trump and his racist opinions How many of their own will soon be escorted to prison as immigrants he’ll have deported their votes can’t be forgiven Only 4 percent of Black women fell victims to Trumps false allure God knows why they were smitten after years of oppression under rich white men’s systems they forgot that “Once bitten twice shy”… holds true wisdom! But the bulk of the blame comes from all the white women who knew Trump was a sexist documented and written in words that would make any females heart sicken They turned their backs on his sickest of flaws and they picked him. Chorus- Claiming Hilary’s E-mails made her far less Trustworthy while Trumps verbal attacks showed all women no mercy leading daughters like sheep to his slanderous tongue un-presidential thoughts uttered to each innocent one. Voting straight across party lines they rationalized that a 70 tear old bigot would no longer despise and treat women like sex toys so they fell for his lies setting women’s rights back to times uncivilized. Their first female president callously sacrificed, cause they disliked her stance what a Godawful price. where did all of those women who claimed to be moral lose their spiritual brain cells the minute they picked him and decades will pass before they’ll get a chance for a woman to step into presidential pants. Chorus- Over E-mails that made Hilary less Trustworthy while Trumps verbal attacks showed all women no mercy they’ve led daughters like sheep to his slanderous tongue Un-Presidential thoughts uttered to each innocent one. In votes straight across party lines they all rationalized that a 70 tear old bigot would no longer despise and treat women like sex toys so they fell for his lies setting women’s rights back to times uncivilized. Susanne B. Anthony’s frail bones are pounding against the lid of her coffin remorse code that won’t soften propelled by her righteous rages after 53 percent of women who voted have torn her from histories pages and spit on her grave..

My Donald Trump Anti Spoof! Movie Finis I had hoped to stay aloof till I reached the voting booth but I’ve heard too much of what Donald has to say. And though some might think I’m uncouth It’s time to write An anti-spoof Cause Trump is not our Great White Hope in any way. Why don’t we start it off with his physical traits Then move on to his angst and his mental states, His hairdo is always Impeccably arranged slightly orange colored bangs But so incredibly strange. With his squinty little eyes above his scowling mouth And when people get him angry his temper goes south with no respect for women he just calls them profane names While all our generals in charge are failures in his latest claims Never in the military but he’s ever so cocksure When it comes to fighting terrorism he says he’s got the cure yet he’ll keep his plan a secret till he’s the president but why/ what if Isis comes a killing and a whole lot more folks die while he’s sitting on solutions or just sitting on his Lie then his apologies won’t fly and our votes should be…Bye Bye! Let’s study all his qualifications If he’s running our great nation He’s filed for bankruptcy 4 times With thirty-five hundred lawsuits Against his business lines Facts that honest folks would call A list of dishonest rich crimes Will he bankrupt the United States With a record of this kind? These are facts we need to find! And his skills on foreign policies do extend to foreign shores Where his product lines are all produced Leaving our economy poor With thousands of Americans jobless Need I tell you any more His party does not seem to care That he won’t fit the bill This is the man they chose to share The U.S. treasuries Till, I did not slander this rich man I stuck to facts… That was my plan Though you might not like my rant And you’ll vote for their White elephant When it comes to choosing Trump I shan’t For years they’ve proved….REPUBLICAN’T!! It’s been my mantra and my chant Just one simple word…..REPUBLICAN”T!! Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-©-2016

Roving Eyes finis Published on Aug 8, 2016 She had sapphire eyes and soprano sighs she kept a ticket to heaven tucked between her thighs.... She had a lovely tush and a heart shaped bush, plus a whole lot of love buttons I could push..... and when she begged me to come over she'd come again and again....and again! You know they just don't make girls like that anymore, she was the Queen Of Love's Ball, with her I had it all............. But I had roving eyes and all her jealous sighs, tore up that ticket to heaven tucked between her thighs, She took her lovely tush and her hearet shaped bush...... plus a whole lot of love buttons I used to push... then she begged me to stay away again and again, again and again.......... you know they just don't make girls like that anymore, She was the Queen Of Love's Ball... With her I had it all........... So now I'm sitting alone, wondering where she's gone???? haven't got the strength to Just move on.... and let her go ................... But my eyes aren't as roving...... as they used to be back when I had her you know......................... ROVING EYES.

This Old House II Published on Aug 10, 2016 This old house has gotten shabby much like the grass we both got crabby leaving weeds to choke the life out of flowers of love that made it sweet..... We are in need of repair but somehow we don't care, amidst our pressing needs just lying there. All the windows of our hearts are broken against thre pressure of our angst unspoken, our house is just token of what we used to share.... But the structure is sound and the foundation is true, and I realize as I'm sitting here I'm srtill In love with you ! and though our house is almost a derelict it's not made of flesh and blood and we owe it to all our good memories to breing it back to love to bring it back to love. so I'm gonna try, baby to be the handyman of our house and hearts' so that we don''t end up in that un-real estate of having to part..... of having to part.... this old house can be brand new again as we try together to get back when our love was more than a perfect ten and then.......... our love won't have to end.

T H E P E R F E C T S T A S H ! ! IV I’ve whiffed, sniffed, dipped and slipped Many hip things into my mouth I’ve smoked, coked, numbing my nose and throat Trying to find out what drugs are about, But I never drained anything into my veins I’ve watched too many friends do that and rot their brains. I smoked banana peels when I was a hippy but much to my dismay, I got constipated and just walked around singing Chiquita Bonita all day, I’ve tried all the safe buzzes and I never got busted Paranoia always kept me O.K Driving so carefully like I had OCD When the munchies sent me shopping each day…. But the greatest addiction that I’ve ever discovered Was a beautiful lady whose a perfect lover, It’s the ultimate high it doesn’t redden your eyes, Unless your giving Kamasutra love an all night try… Then you’ll be huffing and puffing from all the loving you do You’ll be dipping and slipping fore the night is through, till you’re floating in an afterglow beyond compare to all the drugs that hippies did and all the highs they shared. So if you’re looking for a high Better than you’ve ever known It’s probably right around the corner And I’m sure it’s homegrown, Just find a beautiful gal who is a perfect lover And be damned sure she’s an expert In operations undercover…… You can skip synthetic drugs, and throw your bongs in the trash plus you’ll never be hung over so just dump that hash….. you’ll never suffer from withdrawal or have a nasty flashback if you keep a perfect lover as your favorite stash…. Yeah….You’ve got to keep a perfect lover As your favorite stash……..

The Death Throes Of Music. There are fifty three million Three hundred and ten thousand Two hundred and one Struggling songwriters out there Touring Indie Trying to make it to number one…. But hey I just made up that number right out of my weary head There are probably more than that figure I said, Which is why I ought to be out selling dope instead. But I’m just frustrated cause my songs all sit In the shitter on Twitter leaving me as the twit The only face on my face book who is listening to me Is an old ex-girlfriend whose missing me, I’m just screaming in the midst of millions Can you hear me now????? My mike’s an plastic heer cup I ought to give it all up And do some painting for a while. All my stats are anorexic I miss the old days when we used to be Doing studio auditions And touring endlessly. All the concert venues are dying The Bands can’t get the crowds…. And CD’s have all become passé most Folks just download now. The attention span of a modern listener Is twenty seconds or so…. I’m just screaming in the midst of Billions Can you hear me now???? My mike’s a plastic beer cup I ought to give it all up And do some painting for a while. All my stats are anorexic I miss the old days when we used to be Doing studio auditions then recording And touring endlessly. Please forgive me for ranting, I have known some success It’s been a helluva ride, But the song about Buddy Holly Is not the day that the music died, Cause it’s happening now And pretty soon you’ll know how It feels when rigor mortis sets in When the bands all stop touring when it’s no longer alluring tothe lack of money they take in. As songwriters all retire When their Dreams can’t be reality., no more musicality Just Screaming in the masses of Billions Can you hear me Now???????????????? Art~Whimsically Yours studio Matthew F.

Softly And Oh, So Tenderly ! III Published on Jul 31, 2016 Softly and oh, so tenderly, you render me baby, into something that's akin to melting butter.... you leave me breathless baby, there's no words I can utter, except the silence of our kiss.. at the end of our bliss..... the end of our bliss! Chorus- If you were a church I'd worship in you, I'd be the candle you kindle to flame incensed by the heat of your passion.. praying for more of the same.... your eyes, your lips, your touch wrap me in a shroud snug in the warmth of your loving arms floating on a cloud...... you've restored my faith in love again, since God knows when?? cause you've baptized me in the warmth of your love again and again.... Bridge- eventually I close my eyes and dream, entranced by your sated smile, for just a little while.... till once again you're my church and I worship in you, the candle you kindle to flame. incensed by the heat of your passion praying for more of the same..... endless morning and nights to look foreward to, being rendered to butter, you leave me breathless baby there's no words I can utter, at the end of our bliss, except the silence of our kiss.

So Damned Good ! Published on Jul 29, 2016 I'm sitting in the middle of the deepest woods enjoying all that God has granted us and it's so damned good, so damned good....... I've got little Chipmunks running in between my feet, it's like a meet and greet. And tiny Chickadees eating the food i hand out for free Nature's come right up to me. My tent is my shelter from the storms and rain so cozy at night beneath the moon and starlight. And I spend my nights looking into fires and contemplating all the wonders God has given us way back when he was creating this beautiful world into which i was hurled. long ago........ Sometimes i wonder why i was so lucky to be born as a human being and not a silly squirrel who chases nuts all day in a caproicious way. I'm sitting in the middle of the deepest woods and gazing at everything that God gave us it's so damned good it's so damned good. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Coffee Mates ! Published on Jul 27, 2016 The Moon is rising...highlighting all the dark clouds slipping away. We found each other today and night is calling us to play.... dabbling in the sweet magic of each others eyes, Mourning doves echo our softest sighs in a most beautiful way, in a most beautiful way....... Chorus- Love comes skipping through the window on tiny bird feet it's already taken wings inside of you and me..... and I'm sure it won't mind if we close the blinds and keep it captive tonight while I hold you tight beneath warm sheets of white, beneath warm sheets of white..... The sun will soon be rising as we both greet the day, with all our lonely blues just slipping away, just slipping away.. just slipping away. Bridge- The world has been so cold and cruel to both of us as of late.... but we both sent it packing on our perfect date, we'll start all of our tomorrows doing something great.... We'll both share the moonshine baby and be coffee mates, let's be coffee mates, simply coffee mates..... Chorus- As Love comes skipping through the window on tiny bird feet it's already taken wings inside of you and me..... and I'm sire it won't mind if we just close the blinds and keep it captive tomight while I hold you tight beneath warm sheets of white, beneath warm sheets of whiie together, baby......

Detour ! Movie Don't take it too badly baby, it might be better if you just let it go, my love has gone off on a detour... but it might come back around you know. I don't understand how my love for you faded away so suddenly, I swore I'd be your loving man but it's no longer inside of me I just want to be alone..... It's nothing you did it's nothing you said it's just this crazy feeling inside my head, and I'd be breaking your trust'i if I stayed around..... that's why I'm talking to you honestly. So don't take it too badly baby, it would be better if you just let it go, my love has gone off on a detour... but it might come back around you know. I'm so sorry baby but Ican't string you along our love is not a Yo-Yo ascending highs and lows, It would be wrong of me to offer you a love that I no longer know......

VEXATION OF ONE'S SPIRIT !? Jealousy erupts from the precipice of his lips an active volcano spewing heated words, his skin glowing lava red as his blood pressure rises Two fists of rage jackhammer at the walls that have risen between this once joyous temple of two lover's souls. His dreams of any further companionship tumble into an abyss of his own making, as he flails at the emptiness without her. All reverence for her charms lie sacrificed to the unholy worship of a trinity of unfaithfulmness revoked now in a realization of her most rancid deceit. Eventually each synapses of his brain collapses into the pit of despair from which his angst arose.

Encamped Amidst Great Happenstance. Come the bright morning sun through dun woods day's begun, soon its fingers of warmth melt the dew, creatures stir from the leaves, birds chirp high in the trees, while fish leap at all the flies passing through, No alarm greets their day, only instinct will rouse, sleepy squirrels from the nests where they dozed, fragile deer will appear, with thier quivering ears, listening for the sharp cries of the crows. Warning them to run past all the pain that's amassed from cruel bullets or stings from men's bows, one of nature's great charms using birds for alarms, while they nibble on foilage that grows. In a stirring that's ancient, the woods comes alive, daily rituals for the less brave, all these creatures who scurry, with a whole lot less worry, from night predators sleeping in caves. It's this dance I peruse, as I peek from my tent, viewing life as it passes me by, sitting crosslegged and bent near a small, screened air vent, like a most joyous voyuer I spy, yet they'll all dash unspent, from the threats I'll present when I exit and they see me rise. So I'll hold off on breakfast, my coffee can wait, as I savor what few people see, letting them gather foods, before rudeness intrudes, Cause I'm forced to go water a tree. ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Partings. Do we earn the spurn of a lovers sneer or is it merely a thinning of the skin over the soul of one we cherished, allowing love to escape? Is love truly everlasting trapped in the mummified remains the Leathery flesh of the centuries old dead. Exhumed and sent airborne from the dust of their dreams, only to be inhaled by later by generations who become allergic to its pollination? What is that velvet hammer that sends hearts into the state of being impaled together, but then torn asunder by the gentlest whim or fancy of another. Love is but a shallow brook babbling sweet nothings over the wallows of loneliness, one is swept away then wept away, leaving only dry beds empty of what was once liquid and warm. Savor all your rationed moments when love graces you for hunger waits patiently, in the dark shadows of tomorrow, a gut wrenching void at that moment you feel so full of love, but most fooled.

What's Springs From Loneliness Receeding. Soiled souls are ripe but their hopes sleep like possums fallow, fertile vessels that wait for love to re-blossom.... which is totally awesome Colorless daydreams so useless and bland soon kaleidoscope into bright rainbows of hope between a woman and man Tendrils of gold curls gracing cheeks with ruby crescents, framing succulent lips as Love envelopes two worlds bringing all of its presents and blending flesh into bliss.... What springs from loneliness receeding Is a pardon... a garden of dreams that you can touch, taste and devour what was once out of reach for love is two seeds bringing all that you need when they burst at the seams answering all of your dreams..... Loneliness withers mulch for what now flowers bright as two grow entwined sharing for all of time a love they finally got right.... a love they finally got right.

The Cure ! Loneliness is a terrible disease it won't make you itch or cough and sneeze.... but it comes with a rash rash descions that skew attitudes and moods into solitude. Crippling your soul and wounding your heart destroying desires to make new starts.... it's contagious for two who've decided to part, And the cure is a struggle when you're no longer coupled finding new love's a puzzle..... But all the pieces are there disconnnected they wait, as you pick up new choices in your search for a mate, and so many will be the wrong fit for your needs just more incomplete love as again your soul bleeds, But there is someone out there who's as eager to share the cure of true love when you both bend to share all the beauty that's crafted, into something that lingers far beyond lust or passion one night flings, casual swingers twenty interlocked fingers, and then four lips connected bringing love far more precious then you'd ever expected. Loneliness has a cure, Love can always come back but the healing can lead you to many false hopes and Quacks the joining is crucial tightly seamed, sealing cracks till the joy you've created holds no needs to backtrack two sets of dreams integrated making true love a fact.

Your Last Supper ! Published on May 19, 2016 Swallow razors if you must for they taste sharp like steel blue cheese leaving the rarest aftertaste of a copper tang upon your tongue and do not weep when you vomit blood it is all part of the venue on the menu of death self inflicted. ~ Climb to the top of twenty stories suck the sweet air and then just savour life a few moments more as you depart then listen to each story spun as they go whispering... whistling past your ear all twenty of them as you fall to deepest sleep and close the final chapter of you with a vicious slam. it will only hurt with humongous agony when you stop ~ But be sure when you sit down for your last supper at the banquet known as death that you bring with you an appetite voracious in it's urgings make certain that you finish all that's served at your demise ~ Far too many planned last suppers only to be caught with courses left before them incomplete now they wallow in asylum's eating foods of lesser grades and wishing they had cleaned their plate when death presented its last fare.

The Gravity Of Apathy ! movie finis Another smoke another Drink another lonely night I think, wallowing in the booze and nicotine stink of my loneliness. Another girl who caught my eye. then looked away leaving me sigh.. a glimpse of hope that slowly dies with unshared happiness. Perhaps my eyes were too tattooed. and firmly glued on her prelude, till she saw my desperate mood and changed her attitude. It's part of love's eternal feud, show too much interest and your lewd, pay no attention and your rude, and two lost souls are left to brood.. So many dreams have passed on by the sudden reading of one's eyes,, leaving just one more lonely guy and a lonely girl so blue...... Another life I used to know in better days so long ago, would not have let me sink below, all that new love bestows I would have risen from my stool and caught her interest tried and true, from back when I was oh, so cool, now just a lonely fool.. Another drink another smoke my cash is low soon I'll be broke. heading home where I'll revoke all hope of any love. Into the acres of my bed, two pillows for a single head sleeping with apathy instead of that lovely girl... Perhaps i'll dream of what i missed,, enjoying all the ways we kissed, only to wake to my emptiness in a fetal posture curled against my lonely world..., <><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

She loves me.... she loves me not! Summer Of "67" Published on May 16, 2016 Was it only an eternity ago, lying in flowered meadows your eyes stirring my soul, as we broke from a kiss and you gazed up at me with sweet adoration and bliss. What a painting that scene would have made brushed with all of love's highlights in that sun dappled shade, but my hands always quivered and awkwardly bent in sorrow at each failed attempt ands time made the colors all fade, Why must innonece only be cherished when it's long past its drifting away ??, how we laughed and we clung in that early Spring sun, so very sure that we would share endless days endless days........ Soon you sat down beside me gently weaving each daisy in chains through my shoulder length hair, for I was a flower child and you my fair maiden paying tributes freshly woven with care.... Why must innonece only be cherished when it's long past its drifting away ??, how we laughed and we clung in that early Spring sun, so very sure that we would share endless days endless days........ Me strolling boldly through the masses around while flaunting my crown made of daisoies you'd bound of which none of the crowds had a clue, because they only saw you... only saw you.... Bell bottomed blonde haired goddess, so ravishingly breautiful descending to bless my life briefly over an eternity ago.... Why must innonece only be cherished when it's long past its drifting away ??, how we laughed and we clung in that early Spring sun, so very sure that we would share endless days endless days........

Another smoke another Drink another lonely night I think, wallowing in the booze and nicotine stink of my loneliness. Another girl who caught my eye. then looked away leaving me sigh.. a glimpse of hope that slowly dies with unshared happiness. Perhaps my eyes were too tattooed. and firmly glued on her prelude, till she saw my desperate mood and changed her attitude. It's part of love's eternal feud, show too much interest and your lewd, pay no attention and your rude, and two lost souls are left to brood.. So many dreams have passed on by the sudden reading of one's eyes,, leaving just one more lonely guy and a lonely girl so blue...... Another life I used to know in better days so long ago, would not have let me sink below, all that new love bestows I would have risen from my stool and caught her interest tried and true, from back when I was oh, so cool, now just a lonely fool.. Another drink another smoke my cash is low soon I'll be broke. heading home where I'll revoke all hope of any love. Into the acres of my bed, two pillows for a single head sleeping with apathy instead of that lovely girl... Perhaps i'll dream of what i missed,, enjoying all the ways we kissed, only to wake to my emptiness in a fetal posture curled against my lonely world..., Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F.

Financial Art. I was sitting in front of My favorite slot machine Flat ass broke trying chase the American dream…. I put in my last twenty I was all out of money when those reels started spinning like a bee around honey, then I hit the progressive as the bells went crazy guaranteeing that my future would be full of lazy, with the biggest damn jackpot I had ever seen. So now I’m cruising every night In my jade Jaguar, got a mansion like the Taj Majal ten stories higher, and theres always forty girls or so who call me “Honey!” girls who used call me worse before I won my money. I’ve got ten Stratocasters And a vintage Les Paul, that was owned by its master ‘ till death came to call, and a studio where I just sit all day and create songs that become instant hits wheb the D.J.’s get paid, so they push all of my music to the top of the charts, I’m making millions on the sales of my financial art. So if you’re looking for a shot to upgrade what you’ve got, take your money and just stuff it in a hungry slot, and Just maybe you’ll get lucky and hit a jackpot, and you’ll be the next sensation , that the world calls “HOT!!” cause we know life is a gamble It’s a huge crap shoot, So it’s time you grab that handle and win you some loot, cause there ain’t no fame in Indie most are destitute cause there’s ninety million songwriters all posting songs, how can anybody find you on that list so long. It’s just something to fall back on If your gambling does you wrong. But if you should find the luck to hit a grand slam whammy… I’ll be sure to wink at you when I win my next Grammy! And I wish you well…………. In your songwriter’s Hell. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III ©-2016

Weather Or Not ! movie Weather Or not. It’s not sunny today…. But I am, Ever since you’ve made me Your loving man, There ain’t no weather That’s gonna make me blue. Since I’ve found you…..oooo…ooo…oooo And as to whether our love Will last a while, I can see the answer in your loving smile, so let it blow and snow…. Or rain and hail, against the warmth of your kiss it hold no avail, cause I know you love me so and I love you too……. Every day your love brings Summer tine And you brighten my dreams When it’s slumber time, My life’s a paradise sublime Since you’ve been mine….. I’ve got sunshine ‘ Baby, all the time. Cause there ain’t no weather Gonna make me blue, Minus twenty degrees I just think of you, And I get warm all over, When the sun of your love Comes shining through And as to whether our love will last a while I can see the answer, Baby in your smile. So let it snow and blow Or rain and hail, In the heat of your arms It holds no avail….. Cause I know you love me so…. And I love you too……… You are my shelter from the cold and frost my oasis in the desert where I was lost, and when rains pour you’re my umbrella…. I’m a very happy fella….. ...........happy Fella.

My Precious Nest Eggs. A lovely Mourning dove’s discovered The warmth of motherhood uncovered Setting her nest in my porch lamp Under the eaves where it’s less damp….. Where she’s sitting peacefully Always gazing down at me… Each time I’m use my front door, Saying little birdie prayers That I’ll respect her roosting there And that I’m not a dove hunter…… But each time I turn my porch light on it helps to incubate her eggs, the spot she chose was so convenient making her waiting time more lenient, till her babies come to play. was she smart enough to realize her nest was quite a clever enterprise… I tried to ask her but she wouldn’t say So all night long when my porch light is lit She and her babies feel the heat of it And her cold spring nights are warmed a bit Much more then some lonely, windy tree….. Where the rains would pound relentlessly 40 watts feels heavenly…… Much like my home built as a shelter From the endless helter-skelter Of a world that can bring fear Providing for my family Where they can enjoy eagerly Safety and warmth over the years. So now we’ll all be using side doors, Till those eggs that Dove adores All crack as fuzzy heads, Peek from their protective shells, Above a light that kept them well And they fly away some day From their most cozy bed. Till they fly away from their cozy beds from their cozy beds….. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-©-2016 *Photo by me on my porch

I never Truly Knew You/ I never met anyone as beautiful as you, and if i deny it.... your the beauty- and I am the -fool and I never truly knew all the beauty that you shared till l was absent from your haunting eyes and feather soft blonde hair, that caressed my skin when you kissed me there...and there.. and .there....... I guess I was an Allen Keller deaf and dumb and blinded by all those things I took for granted until I finally realized.... Chorus- You were the sweetest girl that ever graced my world you co-promised and than compromised, till I was no longer handsome to you anymore so you handed me some sad goodbye....... , I give up all of my years to erase every tear that i left to dampen your sweet face,.. but i would only die young it's all been said and done cause we're no longer in that special place. Love turned it's back on me and cut me deeply you see, with it's shoulder blades and left me bleed, though i survived the pain those scars will always remain you were the only girl i'd ever need...... Chorus- You were the sweetest girl that ever graced my world you co-promised and than compromised, till I was no longer handsome in your heart anymore so you handed me some sad goodbye....... , I was no longer handsome to your heart anymore So you handed me some sad goodbyes.........

NOTHING FRIGID ABOUT IT ! Let’s head on up to Alaska Baby And live in a state of wild, We’ll light up our igloo with scented lamp oils You know I’ve always loved your candlelit smile….. Chorus- And you’ll be a lot more cuddly Then you are at home. sharing 6 long months of night, we’ll just spoon together using body warmth, to beat the weather’s frigid bite. All our dinners will have A seal of approval Cause they’ll be in the stews we make, And we’ll go dog sledding Sharing hugs and kisses Over endless snow and frozen lakes…. And when those northern lights… fire up the sky, We’ll don our Eskimo parkas to enjoy the sight, Then we’ll look at the stars Through the hole above Our cozy little igloo, Till we make smoking hot love And you’ll be a lot more cuddly Then you are at home. sharing 6 long months of night, we’ll just spoon together using body warmth, to beat the weather’s frigid bite. I had a friend who said it was so beautiful That you don’t even feel the cold, Bridge And he met a lovely Eskimo girl, Who stole his heart and lonely soul, They spent many nights rubbing each others nose Cause the moisture in Kissing can leave two sets of lips froze and he told me it brought him such incredible bliss till he contracted a bad case of Sniff-yllis Let’s head on up to Alaska Baby And live in a state of wild, We’ll light up our igloo with scented lamp oils You know I’ve always loved your candlelit smile And you’ll be a lot more cuddly Then you are at home. Wrapped around me ‘neath a bear skin pile, to warm our frozen bones Wrapped around me ‘neath a bear skin pile, to warm our frozen…….bones……. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-©-2016

Lyrics
Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Verse It's such a perfect summer day as my fingers lead the way, between the frets of songs unplayed, across the bridge of my guitar, where I've traveled near and far, back to memories I have made, It's my reminiscing tool for every heartstring I've had pulled by every girl I've ever known, it's my catalog of dreams bound up tightly with six strings for when I'm left alone. Chorus Though I may never be a star I am content with each string bent and all the talent I've been lent, from the grace of God above who gave me all I'm dreaming of in joyous moments spent. All around me butterflies dance across the Summer skys and birds chirp harmonies as I sit here and I wrtie basking in the sheer delight beneath some shady trees. Verse Life has been a dusty road where I've carried thirsty loads of dreams left unfulfilled, others reached that pinnacle shedding all that's cynical because they were more skilled far more skilled...... but my muse is here with me bringing songs that need set free to ease the misery of all my failure left behind bringing hopes that I will find that perfect melody....... Bridge- Suddenly the sun above is joined by my son who I love, with his guitar in hand, and he joins me in a chair bringing guitar chords we can share and so we sit and jam, Like any trade that fathers know, I taught him music long ago and maybe someday he will be a star who plays my melodies, my precious legacy. Just him and me...... Just him and me......... "Re-beginnings passed on." ArtWhimsically Yours Studio MFB III Productions -(C)-2016

When ever I’m thinking about love It’s much like an egg, So perfect in shape, And it always adds sunny side ups to your days, it’s what folks like to make, it’s a great way to wake….. Pure white like the dress of a bride that beautifies all of the goodness it hides, and it’s so smooth and tender inside, yet you must realize That it’s fragileness can’t be denied…. But if you treat it gently It offers delicious delights. delicious delights....... Chorus- Do you remember when you were too chicken to try, spooning up with that girl who had just caught your eye, and she was as chicken as you were until you gently broke through love’s shell and you both shared the thrill both shared the thrilll...... Soon you scrambled to be by her side every day, cause your job always seemed to poach love’s time away, then her kiss turned your life over easy and gave, buttered promises only lover’s can crave. When ever I’m thinking about love It’s much like an egg, So perfect in shape, It’s what folks like to make Not long after Ithey wake… Cause it always Adds sunny side Ups to your days, Pure white like the dress of a bride that beautifies all of the goodness it hides, and it’s so smooth and tender inside, Yet you must realize That it’s fragileness can’t be denied…. But if you treat it gently It brings delicious delights. delicious delights. delicious delights. So handle your love Like you handle an egg, With the most tender care Lest it fall and it break…. Two hearts unprepared Drying up what you shared cradle your love in all that you do so you don’t find the yolk is on you. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-©-2016

A Songwriter's Creed Published on Apr 23, 2016 These are just thoughts running through my brain, merging into a song like mental rain .... each note, each line, every refrain comes wiith blood, sweat and tears, making joy out of pain. I am a songwriter, for what it's worth... God gave this gift to me..... he put the music in my heart... adding words to every part, so poetically... it doesn't come from me. Ever since I was a tiny child I had rhymes in my head, driving me to write them down, sometimes I'd crawl out of bed... In the wee hours of the morning, inspiration comes without warning and if you don't write it down it dissappears forevermore.... that's what God made songwriters for.. to make love more tangible to the lonely, to try and paint a picture of peace that will let all wars cease. To raise the conciousness among your fellowmen to get along much better, God gave me this talent to try and convince mankind to live as one.. But it's not easy to do my imperfections shine through when the song is done..... So I say a little prayer every time I lift my guitar, to be granted inspiration far more heavenly, then I can hope to be....... So many thoughts run through my brain, as I sit and write this song today, ..... hoping I can reach you in some way.... you've never been touched before.... that's what songwriting's for, That's what songwriting's for....... A Songwriter's Creed ! Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-(c)-2016 some photo credits to Pixabay.com

The Dead Letter - movie THE DEAD LETTER ! Don’t be a John Belushi, Janis Joplin, Jimmie Hendrix Sacrifice your tomorrows On the alter of your present state, Lest your soul be left to sit and stare At all the promises your future held Beyond your brief despair. They found the letter in his hand On his rumpled bed just as he’d planned and it destroyed his family….. Each word brought infinitesimal pain, as each family member wracked their brains on why they didn’t see His suicidal tendencies…… Till his letter shared his grief…. Now I lay me down to sleep As I feel narcotics slowly creep Through my weary veins There is no pain……. Is this what Janis Joplin felt When she loosed that rubber tube Above that angry welt From the needle’s mark When it stole her dreams And left us her remains…… Now as I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep And as I die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take…. Cause I can no longer take My soul which chose to make My life sheer misery. Now he is on the other side Between life and death In that great divide In that limbo where folks go When they deny what God granted them, In one sad act of dismantling There’s a price their death bestows…. They’ll all have to watch what they left behind all the years they’ll miss passing slowly by cause they took their life before their appointed times…. In a lesson tinged with sorrow Where they’ll see that their tomorrows Held solutions they declined, Days of joy beyond the reasons they chose to end their lives endlessly replayed with each soundtrack wailing WHY? Then their souls will move beyond that plane, God will ease their pain But what will remain Will be haunting memories of all that they chose not to be. There’s always tomorrow… Don’t trade it for sorrow Wait and see…let it be…. Only life holds the answers you need. Don’t be a John Belushi, Janis Joplin, Jimmie Hendrix Sacrifice your tomorrows On the alter of your present state, Lest your soul be left to sit and stare At all the promises your future held Beyond your brief despair.

Much More Than Tassles Shifting Decked out in robes of the colors we cherished for several years wearing Mortar boards that contain no mortar to hold us all together tassles now turned to the front all pomp is done and the circumstances are that we've graduated with rigor mortis grins on our faces backslapping and high fives confidence exuded in youthful pride the whole world awaits us we "will" change it all but as car horns fade in the distance autos graced with fingerpainted signs our smiles tremble a little as we turn to leave this building and these teachers who taught us how to leave so well prepared. the stadium sits quiet now in the sun with the pockmarks from football seasons buried in the June grass Mom and Dad beckon with hands that urge haste "Oh, please...not so soon!" let this moment go on with hours of bliss of friends ..of this but the car door is a jar and I am too soon bottled up inside college looms in the dark shadows of tommorrow..... and tommorrow has arrived tears trickle as I realize you can't go back it's all a headlong rush onward as the school dissappears behind some trees along with my youth there goes Mary and Joe homecoming Queen coming home at last Mary's eyes are misty too a tiny wave of her hand marks our passing Mom asks, "What's wrong, dear.. why so quiet?" and when I do not answer she gifts me with a melancholy smile Dad shares a sigh with her they both have traveled where I am this road is old many footprints lead the way many more today will follow some will wander off to war and then return no more some will marry and depart to some other state where they'll grow old and never cross my path again whole classes of people set adrift destined to be seniors one day again but for now and for years to come most of them will be deleted from my life my new hood is adult now my room when I get home seems small and slightly cramped the world has shrunk it down and bids me flee it's refuge tommorrow I can sleep in and dream of all that I once had till I awaken and I face the loss of one life so familiar that I'll leave behind me as I head out on a stranger journey future bound........ <><><><><><><><><><><><><> | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Matthew F.

I see your lovely face, That fate had chose to erase. Chorus- Life is so brief and we won't get no relief, till we have someone to love, So I sit in my grief wishing I could be, with the girl I'm dreaming of......

I see your lovely face, in this heavenly place....

FLESH TEXTING ! ! I wake up with you next to me Eager to share the ecstasy Of a sunny morning’s bliss….. Your fingers send a flesh text to me With tenderness and dexterity In between each kiss….. Love’s the most ancient communication…… a cellular form of exclamations conveying messages so sweet as I push your buttons lovingly bringing your soprano sighs to me till our bodies meet and greet. I remember waking up alone And just crawling out of bed In those days before you were my own But now I stay in bed instead… I love when you give me that look And take the phone off of it’s hook Ever since we both were wed. Love’s the most ancient communication…… a cellular form of exclamations conveying messages so sweet as I push your buttons lovingly bringing your soprano sighs to me till our bodies meet and greet. And if someone knocks upon our door They can pound away forevermore Nothing else matters as much As these ways we both communicate In the early morn or the evening late, Love shared with each gentle touch….. Of the most ancient communication, In it’s cellular form of exclamations Conveying messages so sweet Pushing all your buttons lovingly Bringing your soprano sighs to me Till our bodies meet and greet, Making each day more complete………..

Two hearts as one have now been cleft, by feelings lost so what is left?? When one you love is now bereft of sweet emotions two both shared, what takes their place? disdain? dispair?? The attitude of I don't care? When feelings die mistakes are massive one heart enraged the other passive, forgiveness sought is seldom granted love's magic becomes disenchanted. In the passive heart apathy grows just more lost feelings I suppose? Now two numbed hearts no longer feel, the love that loss of feelings steal. Can loss of feeling be reversed can new love grow from love dispersed. If bad and good times were both wieghed, the good would show, love should have stayed. Two hearts as one have now been cleft one's on a sleeve the other's left. Art~Whimsically Yours Studio Matthew F. Blowers III-(c)-2016

Balanced my body is precariously teetering on a highly strung nerve ending stress is vibrating it into a blur emotionally and physically it's a humming off tune violin in my ear between the whoosh..whoosh of the blood pressure bass drum an orchestratred cacaphony of discordant dirges emerge jaws were harping but are silent now only the echoes remain with a soft twang that haunts the breaks in the flow of life's symphony too many riffs and not enough melodius days cymbals of love come crashing down deafening the soft brush on the stretched skin once so enjoyed by two now en-snared in an off beat out of step one man show though often sharp I am now flat heartstrings broken till only one remains unplugged I play it's single note and it emits a sad wail shadows dance ebony on ivory patterns over the walls of my soul my muse sick and slowly fading into the key of "Gee?" the soundproof world of unrecorded dreams..... my vinyl face reflecting grooves that etch the sorrow of songs left unsung..

I heard church bells ring much like the day we got married reviving memories I'd buried leaving me something to do.... So I went back to the threshold where I'd carried you into our house of love, back when our love was new I sat and gazed at the haven where we'd dwelt awhile blurred by the tears from my remembering your eager smile.... Chorus To begin a new life as my beautiful wife spending our days and nights sharing the sweet delights only true love ignites. And I could picture each room through time's most infinite gloom that left a lonely Ex-Groom wishing we'd turned out right.... Cause I was back in town just kind of cruising around down all our old memory lanes and as I passed the courthouse I could still hear that gavel pounding out my long lost pain.... when the judges decree took you away from me. Stealing all of the dreams I'd ever hoped to see again I saw your face as sad as it could be when you walked away from me in a long black dress on that mournful day facing what was left with no eagerness... Chorus- To become my ex-wife for the rest of my life spending my days and nights in that lonely plight only divorce can ignite. And I could picture one buffoon through times infinite gloom a lonely Ex-Groom still wishing....... we had turned out right.... Then I headed out on the road again putting the pedal to the metal fleeing our way back whens... To join all the lanes filled up with lonely men facing roads that couldn't ever take them back again, except to their dead ends...... except to their dead ends......

I'm down here thinking of you up there and the words you spoke to demean us, leaving a distance so great between us but I guessing you just don't care? I long so mich to hold you near but you spurned my hugs and left me here, with my cigarettes and a lukewarm beer, wallowing in my tears. Those steps loom like a mountain high, I'm weary but hey again I'll try, to climb them once more and lay beside you...... listening as you breathe through your fitful dreams. Remembering when as two we both would never say "Whatever!" dashing up those steps together, into lover's sweet endeavors , we both snuggled close and kissed. melting as one into pure bliss. That's why I'm down here pondering you up there, but what matters most of all.. is my realizing this distance between us isn't really that "Great" at all !!.. "It's Just Awful !! " So I'm down here thinking of you up there and wishing that i could be anywhere but ascending those lonely stairs back up to you. Yeah, I'm down here thinking of you up there and wishing that i could be anywhere but ascending those lonely stairs back up to you....oooo.....oooo...ooooo. Down Here Thinking Of You Up There.

I heard the church bells ring much like the day we got married reviving memories I'd buried leaving me something to do.... So I went back to the threshold where I'd carried you into our house of love, back when our love was new I sat and gazed at the haven where we'd dwelt awhile blurred by the tears from my remembering your eager smile.... Chorus To begin a new life as my beautiful wife spending our days and nights sharing the sweet delights only true love ignites. And I could picture each room through time's most infinite gloom that left a lonely Ex-Groom wishing we'd turned out right.... Cause I was back in town just kind of cruising around down all of our old memory lanes and as I passed the courthouse I could still hear that gavel still pounding out my long lost pain.... when the judges decree took you away from me stealing all of the dreams I'd ever hoped to see again I saw your face as sad as it could be when you walked away from me in a long black dress on that mournful day facing what was left with no eagerness... Chorus- To become my ex-wife for the rest of my life spending my days and nights sharing that lonely plight only divorce can ignite. And I could picture one buffoon through times infinite gloom a lonely Ex-Groom still wishing....... we had turned out right.... Then I headed out on the road again putting the pedal to the metal fleeing our way back whens...

PIERCINGS !! Movie Published on Apr 6, 2016 If I were to pierce every part of my body, all my orifices and appendages hung with decorative doodads until I jingled when I walked, and clacked on bumpy car rides, none of the weight in silver and gold would compare to the day you pierced my heart securing a place that reminds me of you with every beat. lub, dub, clunk... lub, dub, clunk... you are my silver stud, in a grey and black fedora, with wanton eyes, I am your dangling charm, as our lips mold together in a blissful metallic kiss of passions beyond any dreams. Laughing hysterically as they strip search us at airports finding hidden metal everywhere. cause we are magnets to each other drawn to the same desires to pierce and be pierced. I am so glad I metalled with your love. let us add two more lovely bits of precious forgings displayed on our eager young flesh. it will bind us together like siamese tins, and become our fondest of jewelry attached to us both. someday soon we'll share wedding rings as we steel away together and spend the rest of our days linked to love forevermore........................

Re-mastered-This is a Short Song Movie II Published on Apr 5, 2016 This is a short song short lines no lengthy lyrics full of cliff notes quick time You'll barely hear it.... Cause I know you've got your texting and your friends online but you've got very little patience since you're no longer mine. Ours was a short love Abreviated, not what i'd dreamed of anticipated, Sudden romance from heated glances fell short of our wedding dances... So i guess i'll use my chorus to pay tribute to you, and it will surely be much longer that our love's debut... I tried to keep you near but there was little i could do you wrote our eulogy' in shorthand telling me our love was through. It's been a long weekday spent composing some farewell speech to what you've chosen' and I miss you i long to kiss you but you used me like 'kleenex tissue and then threw our love away..... This is a short song short lines no lengthy lyrics full of cliff notes quick time You'll barely hear it.... Cause I know you've got your texting and your friends online but you've got very little patience since you're no longer mine. This is a short song short lines no lengthy lyrics full of cliff notes quick time You'll barely hear it.... Art~Whimsically Yours studio Matthew f. blowers III-(c)-2016

My Placebo Girl. -( movie) Published on Apr 1, 2016 You were my high you were my drug, every time we’d kiss and hug. it was just like a moonshine chug You always made me feel so good, until alone again I stood cause your love you wouldn’t share it, Godawful pain I couldn’t bear it as it became something generic, I’d never swallow even if I could. Chorus- And so you left me here with my placebo girl, though I’d never tell her that it would destroy her world, much like theway that you dismantled mine When you said your sad goodbyes, Stuck in withdrawal with a girl whose love will never get me high…. But loneliness it brought demands on your brokenhearted man sending my heart off into rebound to find new love fast as I can , a way to wound you just because I can no longer catch that buzz of your kisses like narcotics, that I still am dreaming off…. Chorus- Ever since you left me here with my placebo girl, But I’d never tell her that it would destroy her world, much like the way you dismantled mine When you said your sad goodbyes, Stuck in withdrawal with a girl whose love will never get me high…. And though she has a pretty face and a body guys would chase I’m addicted to your memory, but the cure has been erased, and my temporal placebo will soon find herself debased there’s no rehab I can enter Your sweet love can’t be replaced, ain’t no rehab I can run to Cause your love can’t be replaced.........................
