Parallels 6 – Love (11)

“You will get me out of your thoughts in a week.”
“Out of my thoughts! You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since – on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been on me, there and everywhere, and will be.”

Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, the British Empire, 1860-1861


Above the clouds
We flew to heaven
Through the eye of storm
and into to the light

I see you
You’re everywhere I go
In everything I do

I dreamed a thousand years
Just to be here where everything is right
Scrape those screamless skies
Defy the limits and fly

I see you
You’re everywhere I go
In everything I do

Anathema, Universal, England, 2010.
