you've gone, gone and left a beautiful hole in my heart

Theres a bit of story behind this image. It didnt turn out like I first imagined/drew, but at least it finally exists.

 

Okay first put this song on, then imagine...

youre on a bus,

about 14 hours from Manali to Delhi through the night,

add two valium to your composure (dont judge! its available legally and very good for long uncomfortable bus journeys where you need to sleep especially on the buses that let all the rain in...)

youve an airplane eye mask over your eyes (close your eyes!)

chair on full recline

jumper tucked under neck in perfect comfort location

earphones in, for whatever reason, Elbow is on,

That song is playing

 

I dont know, it was obviously just me, but I had a visual/creative orgasm right there on the bus. Sure, it was a slightly drug induced haze, middle of the night/early morning, but I scrabbled for a pen&paper and had to scrawl "hole in heart beautiful" on a page in my diary

 

and I can still feel that feeling I felt on that bus. The poignancy of that one line "you've gone, gone and made a beautiful hole in my heart" hit me, like a bus.

 

Funny.
