He Plays the ViolinJohn sat there, staring determinedly out the window, proposing loudly his new attack on the southern states and all who still dared oppose independency. He was in the middle of one of the primary statements in his argument when that beautiful, angelic sound floated to his ears. He, John Adams, the most voluble man in Philadelphia, stopped mid-sentence. Turning around slowly, he found Thomas with the violin tucked up lovingly beneath his chin. Thomas swayed ever so slightly, his eyes closed as he smoothly ran the bow across the strings. John was stricken silent. When Thomas finally lifted the bow, his eyes opened to stare blankly at John, as if he were waiting for the other man's reaction. John delicately walked up to stand before Thomas. "Thom " he whispered. Thomas grabbed John's hand and waist lightly, pulling him forward in a flowing waltz. John let himself be sucked into his lover's dance, leaning into Thomas' warmth and love. And he thought, maybe he did talk too much.
Nervous MovementYou're a dime a dozen in a sea of billions.
Individuality has no significance in numbers so vast.
And while this fact makes looking forward hard
we can't keep living in the past.
You're a nervous movement in a freeze frame scene.
Steady hands won't help hold up such a fragile act.
And while you take your time keeping character
you fake what you can't take back.
With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.
You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.
I've listened to you before and probably will again.
And while I can hum the melody all day long waiting
for it to hit me I still won't know where you've been.
You're a gust that has never changed direction.
Nothing can touch you you're only felt as you brush skin.
And while you can't be stopped nothing lasts
nothing escapes time not even the wind.
