Dancing with tears in my eyes

DancingAre you also the same? When you read a book you build up this image in your head, and when you see the movie it is completely different and it almost spoils it for you. Or when you listen to a song it means something special to you, and when you see the video it is completely wrong.

Well, so it was with me. When I saw the title to Kesha’s song “Dancing with tears in my eyes” it immediately flashed back memories to some years ago. One evening, in the middle of the fight, we went out to a show and dance. She looked incredible in a little back dress, she smelled like heaven, her eyes the colour of green emeralds. I cannot remember that she had ever looked so beautiful, not even on our wedding night. But I also knew the end was near.

Yes, the words “dancing with tears in my eyes” had a very special meaning to me.

And then I heard the song, and everything went Crash! The song just lost all meaning. It did not connect to anything I felt. The music was just, well, not what I had imagined. In fact it spoiled the song completely.
TearsRecently I read an interview with Kesha in the CLEO issue of November 2010 (nice photo on the cover) [click here] and my bubble was burst even more. Like, really, I mean, she is nothing like I imagined her to be. And so I was listening with tears in my eyes (the subject of another post later) for the loss of something I thought was beautiful.

And strangely, the words and song and artist went from high to low in just a few seconds. They did nothing wrong, but it is just a sad fact that I decided to hang on to the picture in my head, the pain in my heart, and the imagination that I was the only one feeling what I was feeling. End of story. She even wrote on the cover “i wrote a song about my cheating ex” and I am untouched by her rendition of the song.

Not that I decided to give up on my tears. If you want to read an interesting piece about the meaning of tears why don’t you amble across to Enlightened Awareness and see what the author thinks [click here] about crying. Says “the more you love somebody the more potential for hate there is”. Sounds cool to me.

Meanwhile, I will be in my cave looking after my own memories if you need me …

    Kan ek ook n ‘comment’ maak?..

    “Woman changes man into something she isn’t interested in”.

    If she(he) can’t love and like you just the way you are, then she(he) should maybe continue her(his) search?……

    Men with their 800 words a day for communication: save some for your lady love at home! 😉

    And a bit off the subject;
    Same with accepting the children involved; sometimes the adult children also need to adapt and accept.
    I did a lot of reading/research on the ‘STEP”- family, -kids concept. And read a lot of letters on parent24 a couple of years ago. I found it very scary what step parents (supposedly adults) had to say of step kids. It works both ways, actually 3 ways (couple’s relationship), incorporate the Fourth, and you shall succeed in a relatively great way. The Fourth being the most important one, then the 2 partners, the kids will follow….

    And if the relationship is not working, don’t blame the kids!

    Both real and step parents: Right from the start, seek support and /or help from books, people who’s been there, done that, professionals. Do it the right way right from the start.

    Sometimes love is not enough…

    That’s how I see it.
