2 takes, how it aches
a frown, settle down
friendship escape,
never to take
disappointment
discouragement
what to look for
implore
on the basis of no
a neglect of go.

It's strange, being a catalyst for things that move outside.

I'll see if I can remember this...

LITTLE POEMS.

Other people's poetry
Floats onto my windowpane
In little pieces...

What is the colour of nothing?
The smell of time?
The taste of old linen?
And when the wind sings, what does it say?
Will it ever sing its song again?

I sold my soul to the Devil today
Although he warned me not to.
"The Stockmarket's down," he said,
"And souls don't get you much nowadays,
What with inflation and all that."

He said perhaps I should think more about it
And call him back next week.

Life comes in a packet,
Tightly sealed.
Packaged away in a box to be opened
In time.
Maybe even tomorrow.

The sea sings, the wind speaks.
Every wave has much to say.
The flowers wilt, the sky dreams
Of other people's thoughts,
Other people's lies,

Other people's poetry.

Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

The Sands of Time


And the winds blow hard
Tearing at my flesh
Carrying bits of dust and sand
Getting in my nose, my mouth, my eyes
The sand has already covered my feet
Slowly it builds
Higher, higher, higher yet
Not trying at all, but succeeding nonetheless
And yet I stand here
Watching, waiting
Knowing the inevitable
But not caring
There is no rational reason to fight fate
The sand is up to my neck
My friends are long since gone
And as the sand covers the top of my head
I realize that I have been forgotten

In the beginning


when darkness ruled the world


the dawning of a new day


in a tidal pool swirled.


The beginning of the end


risen from the sea


destined to destroy itself


it seeks its prey with glee


Freed upon the world


it seeks to change its fate


but cannot learn from its own mistakes


until its far too late.


In its haste to conquer all


and prove itself the best


still it strives against its own


and fails the final test.


Now the world is dark again


just like the beginning


history doomed to repeat itself


gives us no chance of winning...Yarblis

4:32

It's 4:32 in the afternoon
She didn't call, so I just stalled
I didn't know what to do
So I just called you.
We went to lunch
We had a good time
We had spaghetti, and sparkling wine
We went to the movies and saw King Kong
Now that's the end of my song(poem)!

Ponfo mirann.

I once had a dream that I could travel to the stars


I flew up to the moon and then I made my way to Mars.


How exhilirating,to fly through outer space,


No longer bound to Earth,I could go anyplace


I flew from star to star and found that life is everywhere


It's good to know we're not alone,there's lots of space to share


Armed with certain knowledge and the power of the dream,


I headed for my home on Earth,but things weren't as they seem.


I awoke to find myself in bed and the stars up in the sky


I closed my eyes in sadness,the dream was just a lie


Perhaps in mankinds future,when we've grown out of our youth


The dream will be realityand the lie will be the truth.

TAP! TAP! TAP!

I tapped her chin
for the fun to begin

TAP! TAP! TAP!

She snapped her teeth
and said, "I was asleep."

TAP! TAP! TAP!

She rolled over, with a wave
And a warning to behave!

Here's another one.


 


 A Search for  a way


 


Isolation's feeling encompassing my time
here and now turnings of time become meaningless
lost in retreat from all, coalescing in the need to extend myself

In extension comes clarity not seen but felt
but still useless against my own procrastination
seemingly I'll set out to my journey's way

I find myself upon a path forward
I fall back to known realities not wanting the new
for I can't escape and I am afraid

And in this fear stagnation and loneliness reign
must break forth to the moving eddies of now
cannot remain stuck for in this death is the only escape

I will come to know myself
I will reach out
I will change

In my own time these things will occur
hopefully in a short time to narrow to notice
for I cannot move ahead of myself if I bother to notice

In this unnatural vantage point
I can feel my own closeted existence
peeking threw the cracks of illusion to realism

I must reach out, I must change
in this seeking I will encapsulate my new self
and reemerge like a phoenix from the depths

No longer controlled by fear
no longer afraid of myself
in this I will find my freedom

But I'm not there yet
closed in my own mind
locked in my own world

The act of even the smallest part
is a trying expereince
as so much rides on the learning from action

To a new reality I strive
so slowly almost inconspicious
the destination so far so unbelievable

I cannot discern the images of change
I am in a cloud of unreason
I will move threw the detritus of my mind

For this sickness cannot hold me forever
I am stronger than it
I am the world born anew.

Blue water how you gold to those thirsty
Blue water how nations willing fight wars over you.
Blue water how you are both taker and giver of life.

Baby,
I must protest,
I won't get no sleep,
If I don't get your sex.

I'll be turning and tossing,
Tossing and turning,
Thinking of all the respect
That I could be earning

From the brothers in the 'hood,
Who found out I got you good,
Just like I told them,
the way I knew I would

There I was, on the can,
Posing like "The Thinker,"
Heaving a Havanna,
And Sweet Jesus,
What a stinker!
That's when she walked in,
Wearing nothing but a grin
That's when I knew,
How I was Full of Win!
