Fallen Stars

meteor

You came back again
A moth to the flame
And I can’t take the way
You shimmer and dance
Like it was yesterday
I’m telling you it’s better this way
Because there is no chance
No You’ll be fine
They lied saying
The stars will align
Flung by Fate
Predestinated meteors
Irradiating the nameless faces
Stalking our progress
Howling derision and praises
And light years above the throng
We track divergent courses
Fallen stars
Quicksilvering
Into splintering oblivion.

David Ramirez’s “Rock and a Hard Place”

Check out the music video for David Ramirez‘s song “Rock and a hard Place” directed by Ryan Booth and featuring a muted, crushing performance by Keir O’Donnell.

Booth’s intimate, hand-held shooting style lends itself perfectly to the quiet tempo of the song and puts us right in the middle of the pain that O’Donnell makes us feel.
