Down On My Knees

A Song.

This came to me on a lonely night walking down Hollywood Boulevard. I sang it as a prayer. I sang it over and over. I am so grateful. It helped me through a tough night. May it bring the same for all of you.

You know I'm down on my knees,
and I'm begging, "Oh, Lord, please. Have mercy..."

Dear Father,

I may sing this again tonight. Let us sing it together.
Thank you. Thank you, spirit.

Humbly,

P.

Dear Rumi,

My Father sent me your poem. Thank you, Rumi. Thank you, father.

Witness,

P.

Dear Pirooz,

My poem:

Love is reckless; not reason.
Reason seeks a profit.
Love comes on strong,
consuming herself, unabashed.

Yet, in the midst of suffering,
Love proceeds like a millstone,
hard surfaced and straightforward.

Having died of self-interest,
she risks everything and asks for nothing.
Love gambles away every gift God bestows.

Without cause God gave us Being;
without cause, give it back again.

Watching,

Rumi

Dear Pirooz,

I love you.

Dad

Dear Spirit,

Thank you.

Grateful,

Pirooz

Bobby! So good to see you here. Yes, I will check out the blog. I am living in Los Angeles now. My number is 310-279-8994.

Nicole and I separated amicably. She is still in Boulder at the number you called.

What else? How's New York? Are the people at the magazine treating you well?

I am working at a television company at the moment. Reality TV. Very fun and funny. I have no idea how long I will be here. I am open though. Beautiful people here.

I will talk to you more through e-mail.

Lots of Love,

Pirooz

Great! Though sorry to hear about the split. You and I never got a chance to check out a friendship, though there were little moments I think where we were like: maybe?

Definitely email me, comment whatever. Keep in touch as it were.
