My day of World of Warcraft playing was interrupted to bring you this post; They won’t shut up sometimes until you do what they ask and “later” is not acceptable. The Gods don’t talk to me the way, say, you and I would sit down and have a chat. It comes in colour’s and music, poetry and whispers, images and emotions. You catch my drift I’m guessing. Translating that into human speak can be rather challenging sometimes. This song pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject.

“All This And Heaven Too” by Florence and the Machine.

And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks in tongues and quiet sighs,
And prayers and proclamations
In the grand days of great men and the smallest of gestures
And short shallow gaspsBut with all my education I can’t seem to command it
And the words are all escaping, and coming back all damaged
And I would put them back in poetry if I only knew how
I can’t seem to understand itAnd I would give all this and heaven too
I would give it all if only for a moment
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see
‘Cause I’ve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

And it talks to me in tiptoes
And it sings to me inside
It cries out in the darkest night and breaks in the morning light

But with all my education I can’t seem to command it
And the words are all escaping, and coming back all damaged
And I would put them back in poetry if I only knew how
I can’t seem to understand it

And I would give all this and heaven too
I would give it all if only for a moment
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see
‘Cause I’ve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

And I would give all this and heaven too
I would give it all if only for a moment
That I could just understand the meaning of the word you see
‘Cause I’ve been scrawling it forever but it never makes sense to me at all

No, words are a language
It doesn’t deserve such treatment
And all of my stumbling phrases never amounted to anything worth this feeling

All this heaven never could describe such a feeling as I’m hearing

Words were never so useful
So I was screaming out a language that I never knew existed before

  1. I love all of Florences’ songs. I think she might be Godtouched herself. They also get your attention by playing poltergeist, as in tipping things over, tapping on things, moving things in front of you. Loki in particular, can be aggressive this way. Rather startling especially if it happens at night when you are feeling vulnerable.

      1. Are you talking about the newest, How Big, How Beautiful song? The video for that was amazing! And it really got to me, because that’s what all the Gods seem to be teaching us right now, how to love ourselves and discover our own Divinity.
