the truth is missing.

a whole town looks

for traces of your

orange red brown hair

after you vanished into

another plane.




the truth is questionable.

you don't know where you are

or how you breathe

or where your flesh and muscle and bones

and wounds have washed away.

was it the other side

or this side?




the truth is stuck.

you push every wall of thin air

and you find that it

is endless.

you shouldn't want to leave.

you can't.

about a book i wrote.

1. Ticket

IT should have written your name, in that column.
Do I have to care about the name of the city and the airport?

It should have been the reason for my departure:
go home to meet you, for longing. "Repeat the word, completely
which can fit in empty space, on my ticket paper, "

I will say so, to the registrar.

2. Baggage

I WILL not give this to a haphazard officer.

My backpack will just hug me along the flight.
"It's an unfinished longing, longing to worry me.
There are many who are not caught. It's an incomplete longing, "
I will say so, when I get back to you.

I'm not going to let what is tightness scattered carelessly.


3. Waiting Room

I AM worried about you. The airport in this country is not fair.
There is never a good waiting room for pickup.

I'm worried about me. This heart's longing is also never fair.
There was never enough waiting time, for a moment to be patient.


4. Emergency Door

WHY does the stewardess always, like telling anxiously?

I already know very well where and how to open
Four emergency exits, wear safety jackets, put up
And removing seat belts. I've been very anxious ever since
Bought the ticket I mentioned in stanza number one. Tickets are on
there I want to write my own name, flight date and time,
And the reasons why you so badly missed.

I hear a song in the distance - stand deep within the pains of my heart yet troubled - My mouth trembles words - I think the thoughts I want to shout - Yet linked to a shattered perspective - Emotion nothing comes out - My lips stand still what is this I feel - Infatuation detangled like the veins that embrace your body - Run down your spine - Tangled I'm lost - Direction is amuse I refuse this is my hope - I ask you to ride my Jet Plane our song - A note to tell - Don't Fuck around my Lady river - You grip tight this is our flight - Life is scattered like the whim a whisper I shutter to detect the fear in your heart - Does this beat get louder - Or is clutter our way - Our story began so sketched out nothing planned - Page by page it proposed a light in a dark space - I never felt grip so tight - You gave fever to a place I call comfort - My time - Seconds afloat - I do not know how to perpetuate my thoughts - Im lost - I long - I taste - Your skin yet distance
Do I pray the God to save what infatuated my heart - Brought tears sorrow joy thru this drout - Im dry of the memory you gave me - Desire that one day it will appear before me - Lost stolen for nothing - Was it worth it
Did you love me
Hate me
Kiss me
Memories surround
Im untouched
Desires
Prevail
I long for our lips to meet
Sustained
Ill wait
Love remains

Our stain

No halfway's mark me     as full or empty
when a drop of hope     can change someone's life.

12:30 - 9/06/17
State of mind: defiant; focused.

Thoughts: from thinking - about the saying 'is your glass half full or empty'?

I realise that it is a passive question, not serious, but merely to reveal a person's attitude or outlook.

What I'm exploring with this is the idea of, not just thinking about a person's attitude, but what the actual contents of the glass are. A glass half full might taste of sorrow.

Questions: the glass may be half full or empty but where is the source from which it is filled or drained?

hey i saw you in the last carriage
you got on at bathurst and sat across from me
we went all the way to the end of the line
never getting off
never making eye contact

i've never met you before but
i think i was thinking about you before you got on the train
all the air was sucked out of the area
and i was so worried you could read my mind

anyway
call me
i think i'm in love with you

hahHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Ah! Great plane in sky
You leave behind a long line
Making the sky high

I don't take drugs just guilty of watching to many action packed films :)

If you could choose a superpower,
With what virtues would you be showered?
I would like to be balm to folk,
Lighten disputes with silly jokes,
No need for dumb arguments any day,
Smiling is permitted, let's say,
If I could choose a superpower,
Peace on Earth I would shower.......

Feedback welcome.

As I sit here above the sky
And look upon the clouds
I stretch my mind far and wide
As much as it allows

The further I set out about
The sea above the land
It covers and clears, and covers and clears
And without a doubt expands

The tiny lights and tiny fields
It's as if I am a God
With one quick wipe I clean the land
Or upon a town I trod

Yet I can't help feeling like a lonely bird
Upon my wings today
However, it's quiet nice to feel alone
It has its own strange way
I seem to appreciate the smaller things
Like orange rising up from grey

The ear,
The oil, resists
Stubborn word water

She locked her neck target
Like a missle mother

I chimed in
Like a dusty daughter

But she loaned attention
To someone further

Away I go
To ground control

So my flighty feet
Embrace the mold

Of the runways and get-a-ways
For which I've packed

Will busy mother
Want me back?
