There are some days, strange days, metallic days, when you wake up feeling anger inside for no apparent reason. Or days with you happy and well until one moment when, all of a sudden, anger strikes and turns you from small to smaller.
You keep yourself inside and nobody knows it, but you know it. You always know it.
You are an aggressive animal. Those damn small things betray you in the eyes of connoisseurs. The way you drive, the way you smoke, the way you walk.
Your life got better, you got better, things started to fall into their places. Also love happened to you.
But there are these days happening against everything as a reminder of your littleness and of your wounds. Wounds without a cure. Unhealed burns that make every touch and kiss to hurt like hell, no matter how well the other one masters the art of touching a wounded one.
It’s just how it is. Love doesn’t heal you, it just gives you a chance and the strenght to live a better life the way you ended up.
When Annie Lenox and Kate Bush decided to sing this song together, they created a cure for anger as a side effect.
There are times when I feel like the autist woman, Temple Grandin, who learnt to deal with herself and with the anxiety of life by inventing all sorts of things and ways to push her forward against herself.
For such twisted days, it is the beauty of this masterpiece that calms me down over and over again. And the sea.
Run to the sea, Spartacus! Run to the sea.
“When the rain came down, I was older than the earth
I could die right now, and plan another birth
Anytime I choose
I am in peace, in love, in harmony when the rain comes
When the rain came down, I was standing in the green
My soul was touched by every tree that my eyes could see
I am in peace, in love, in harmony when the rain comes down
When the rain came down, melded with my tears
When the rain came down, float away they fears
When the rain came down, bigger than the sea
When the rain came down, then came me
When the rain came down, there was no one else around
I could feel my feet being swallowed by the ground
Every step I take, I am life, I am life”
