A Breath of wind is wind itself,

should true and steady braided shelfs,

foraged fords from handsome lords,

prayed hopes & proper ropes,

could life and science meet the world beyond Biology?

"A home," it cried, "a home for me with trees and lakes and reverie."

I tried and cries for something else, elsewhere

I found a leaning shelf.

Should what was true and even hold nothing told or helpless here,

I cannot hide a place inside,

though I cannot say I really tried.

Love soaring high up above like a dove
Stars a glow to show the world below
Through the cosmos we make our way
Passing Oslo's vibrant haze, your beautiful eyes
mirrored the swaying shades

Hearts embrace at daylight break
unto the horizon we make our way
Hearts embrace as the night fades
towards the horizon we go our way

Starstruck on Venus, the morning light greets us
through the eastern sky we make our way
To the celestial skies of australis
the southern beauty became my goddess

Hearts embrace at daylight break
unto the horizon we make our way
Hearts embrace as night fades
towards the horizon we go our way

Stardust dreams
in saturns ring
our love sweeps
in a cosmic breeze

Something different

Mommy in the kitchen
Dancing ’n'dirty dishing
Chit chatty while
Daddy out fishing
Women of his vision

Read back old pages, my life's book
Fond memories on every nook
All seemed too neat, except one crease
A missing tile, one final piece

Blanket of stars shroud rolling hills
I lay spread-eagled, cooling heels
Bethinking my lady; how fair
Building grand castles in the air

I dream us be, like white on rice
Will fate bid so that we should splice?
When days grow dim and full of blot,
I'll be your "Johnny-on-the-spot"

Night sky glimmered and I wonder;
"Are you nearby? How far yonder?"
"Are you beholding the same stars?"
"Are you concealing the same scars?"

Part of days past? But when, who knows?
Future, perhaps? Looming and grows?
How many times, I'll count the moon?
My heart's aching to meet you soon

Jorge Palileo Apr 12

Quinquennium, two moons ere midsummer's eve
Amore entombed; clandestinely, I cleave
Haunting, daunting, even on waking eyes
Grateful, I was, charnel did not suffice

Atop tower of spice, my Star ensconced
Horseless carriage scorched the road, innards conched
Sworn meeting's ripe with anticipation
Longed to see this friendship's progression

Bulwark stood guard, nigh foot of the mountain
Levee treacherous affection, contain
Celestial sight roused earthquakes in this chest
Released the dam, alluvion that is best

Thy beauteousness, a marvel with purpose
Ineffable, even with grand verbose
Wise and fair, thoughtful eyes, smile, oneiric
Prithee, grant pardon this humble lyric

I'm at the bar
Drinking all alone
Cuz the club
Just isn't my tone.

I get my drink
And you walked in
With your hair slicked
Asking for gin.

Ten shots later,
I'm calling you baby
Asking if maybe
You'd like to come home.
Really I'm lonely,
You don't seem unwilling,
So maybe we can bone.

Let's not go too fast,
Let's fumble neath the covers,
Put your body on me.
I cannot last
But let's act like lovers
Pretend I'm hotter than what you see.
And when the sun rises
Please don't quickly go
Cause I don't want to be left
With your shadow
(Woah woah woah)

Now the sky brightened
Other side is empty
And you are not there.
The bed has lightened
It's almost eight-twenty
In the exit I see your hair.
I call out to you,
Askin' what I can do
For you to stay.
You turn to me,
Say "we're history",
I then realize I don't know your name.

Let's not go too fast,
Let's fumble neath the covers,
Put your body on me.
I cannot last
But let's act like lovers
Pretend I'm hotter than what you see.
And when the sun rises
Please don't quickly go
Cause I don't want to be left
With your shadow
(Woah woah woah)

Let's not go too fast,
Let's fumble neath the covers,
Put your body on me.
I cannot last
But let's act like lovers
Pretend I'm hotter than what you see.
And when the sun rises
Please don't quickly go
Cause I don't want to be left
With your shadow
(Woah woah woah)

Buttercups,
yellow like honey,
become peculiar sweets
towards the sea
-line where I sit
slighting the grey.

Stars, bubble-topped,
in champagne rise
the firelight of this beaded day.

Blow the blue swallows,
loops of the air,
whose south and southern fragrance
sow the summer day down to the –
say of nowhere newly made somewhere.

Lift all the wheat
the harvester the combine
combining to bind
binding the bound the golden.

Slip all the day
down to the throat
the ear stray
for the sea terns’ splash
or the noise of the stoat.

Graft till the grip
is the tight of crowded lines,
and the seaward trip
whitely stars
as phosphorescence drips
pleasure-presents, those
lips on lips.

Falling (I won't fall in)
Falling (I won't fall in)
I won't fall in
Won't fall in
Falling (I won't fall in)
Falling (I won't fall in)
I won't fall

Don't try to call my phone (I won't fall)
All you'll hear is a tone. (I won't fall)
And boy, you should've known. (I won't fall in)
I don't even need you.

Me and my squad we're fine just with us.
We need no sod to make sure we don't fuss.
Kiss my puss
I've heard enough.
I ain't messing with you.
I ain't messing, messing

Champagne glass,
Hold it at your side.
Splash it in his face.
Leave him to abide,
Abide.
Splash it in his face.
I don't even need you.

I won't fall in
I won't fall in
(No) I won't fall in
Ah hell naw!
I won't fall in
I won't fall in
Ah hell naw!

First you said I was needy,
Now you call me greedy.
Once you said I was lying,
But now you come to me crying,
And I give no craps about it
Not just because I doubt it
It's exactly what you've done
So accept that you'll get none.

I don't even need you (You'll get none)
I don't even need you
I don't even need you
I don't even need you
So piss off!

Waiting at our table for our small date,
Wondering if you're able to set yourself straight.
You've always got some bullshit answer.
I hope that someday you'll get some candor.

In our lonely bedroom,
I've left a box from before our doom,
My ex-groom.
But I am fucking nobody.
Pour a glass for our life
In the land of dreaming
Where I am your loving wife.
If you could've stopped scheming,
I would still be at your side.

Our hopes are now guileful (guileful)
And our memories are painful (painful)
But now its source is unplugged (unplugged)
And I feel even more loved.

You only need me as an alibi.
Now all you've got is a goodbye. (goodbye, goodbye)

All you've got is a goodbye.

And as soon as she lit the candle that was my life,

she blew it out again.
