Yesterday evening, as I was watching Dirty Jobs, a thought entered my mind – or rather a lyric – that made me stop and think:
“Sigh no more, no more.”
It made me stop and think because: 1) I hadn’t listened the song in ages, and 2) It applies directly to me. And I didn’t even realize how much until I listened to it later on, and wrote out all my thoughts about the song.
So, here is my philosophical analysis of the song “Sigh No More” by Mumford and Sons.
(I’ll post the music and lyrics first, and then break each one down.)
Recently, my life has been very much shaken up. I’ve experienced great joy, I’ve experienced great loss, and I’ve found that the heart is a funny thing. It’s so eager to latch on to someone, but it has such a hard time letting go. At least that has been my own experience. It’s almost like someone took an axe and severed this invisible connection I had, and it’s just as painful as that sounds.
But I’m making it.
And, as morbid as this may sound, I’m thankful for such pain. I’m sorry that it happened with this someone, but I’m thankful that it did, because now I know what it means to be heartbroken. Now, when I hear about someone else losing someone, or when I see someone else cry – be it real or fiction – I know what it is they’re going through. I know how deep the pain can hurt. I can relate, and I can help. Having someone who understands is so much of a blessing that words cannot even begin to describe it, and, thankfully, I’ve had friends who have been where I am. Friends who understand and have survived the devastation of a heart-break.
And I have joined their number. One of the broken-hearted.
It’s a strange feeling, this growing-up thing. At times I really hate it, and sometimes I wish things would just stay the same, but all things happen for a reason.
“Sometimes life is like this dark tunnel; you can’t always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you just keep moving you will come to a better place.”
C’est la vie.
Such is life.
Hello again! I know it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything, and for that I am sorry. I’ve had a lot of things come up over the last couple of weeks, which have kept me from writing. Also, it’s hard to write on a dime. Inspiration has to be there, and I’ve been trying to figure out where I want to take The Nameless Man story, and when I want to end it.
With that said, I know where I want to take it, and I know when I’m ending it.
Chapter 10 will be my last chapter. I know some of you may be disappointed, but this was never going to be a continued saga. It is a short story, and short stories must come to an end. However, this last chapter will be the longest of the bunch, so you should be happy for that. ;P
I would also like to thank all of those who actually visit the site regularly. You are the ones I’m writing for, because I wouldn’t be doing this if I was talking to no one. So thank you for taking time out of your day to read my posts. It really means a lot.
Now! I have to get to work, but Chapter 10 will be up and posted between now and tomorrow.
