Welcome to my Nightmare

Filed under
Just talk

a flash of light, I see a wing
I think it's a bird, but he doesn't sing
in his mouth an engagement ring
lines of truth and lies blurring

another flash I think I see
drips of blood, he cackles at me
flaps of wings all over the tree
crashing waves come up from the sea

thunder explodes they all take flight
no one can see the carnage at night
my eyes adjust but not enough light
I can't see my life try as I might

lightning bolt, shredded white dress
this must be a nightmare me in bareness
I think of lost love as memories regress
sudden loud noise my heart oppress

sharp pain I feel across my face
more blood and tears all over the place
I fall to the floor crumpled in disgrace
in the wind black feathers and lace

fast as I run I can not escape
the beast gains intending to rape
focus my eyes it begins to reshape
silhouette of man, my chest agape

Next I see my heart on the floor
Silhouette turns, rain starts to downpour
You think it'd be him, but it's me to abhor
My blood drains off towards the shore

the greatest gift my love he forsake
leaving my heart with nothing but ache
darkness and loss and confusion make
this nightmare of pain I can not awake

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone
