物の哀れ(mono no aware)

it's been a while
since i stopped trying to rhyme my words for you;
it doesn't sit well with being speechless.
on the contrary, the poems became tunes
which then dried up into thoughts
things i wanted to say out loud
but you would hush me before i could
till our silence together became a wall.

you're in songs, still.
when i least expect it, a snatch of lyric
taking me back to times that are now lost
somewhere amidst the clamor of trams
the rustling of turning pages
the sound of your tiptoes and your smile
am i but a memory to you by now?
i am done here, by the way. 

PS - the name of the poem shares itself with a Japanese phrase which relates to the ephemeral nature of things. it goes well with how i have been feeling for a while now...

Excellent for TED, the way in which Sheldrake characterizes scientists is much from the mark.
Which branch of scientists is he talking about? Geologists?
Astro physicists are often acknowledging that
dark matter can be a theory. Do any of one's supporters ever actually read what scientists say? To speak of science as the new church dogmatism is simply wuwu.

Lemons have a low, highly acidic pH, which is attributable to
their citric acid content. The acidity of a fresh lemon can vary between
2.2 and 2.4 within the pH scale, depending on the fruit's state of ripeness.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I've began a Leangains-type regime depending on your posts and Martin's internet site, but have not totally moved into the fasted exercise,
consuming BCAA drinks, and so forth., mildew and possibly will not.

(see Martin's site and also the fasted workout submit) To date, I am truly making the most of the lifting, as I had been receiving sick and tired of my modified Body By Science routine and my gains there were slowing way down. Deadlift workout tonight, and I am looking ahead to it!
