Rihanna - Diamonds (Acoustic)
Seeing her in concert was one of the greatest things I’ve ever done
I can’t even right now…. speechless
I think this is the first time I heard her sing live and not crack. Wow, just wow
Sonnet XVII - Pablo Neruda
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
Sometimes, you try to make a medley without any instrumentation, all the while lamenting at the lack of it.
And then your secret santa comes in and adds the PERFECT piano track and surprises you with it.
Thanks so much Alex!
Love this medley!
