All the songs that could be,
have been written—
choruses of love and death are sung
My time starts and stops
Cupid's arrows cast long shadows
over deserts of solitude.
Sand-smoothed dunes of memory
carved then curved by rhyme,
concavely and convexly.
Her Eros complexity:
nightly name games,
the daily delightful.
fancy fuel for neurotic fire.
Those synapses tripping wire after wire after wire.
Spitting lover's stutter.
The perfection of your existence
then whorls out of my existence.
A tornado of torrid desire
then crashing into essence:
the ebbing tides of our emotional insides.
Tears of joy
wet and warm.
Caring for each other,
erring on the side of desperation.
Passion for one and the other
orbiting on the edge of obsession.
A willing wallow in the depths of addiction.
a desire to time travel
i know i can do it
barely any trace of humanity
cold and clear sky
feet take me to the swing
as an adult
do i feel
the infinite poetry in swinging
in the dark,
head up to the sky,
eyes asking for salvation from the hidden stars
give me your blue peace
take me up forever
breathe your infinite void into my soul
heart keeps hoping for a flight
eyes keep looking at the sky
soul's afraid to miss a second of the infinite silence
even the screech of the old iron swing
can't break the harmony
it's the harmony itself
it's the universal sadness
mind awakens the feet
fears return -
strangers passing by
spreading more fear
with their cold eyes-
the swing stops
the illusion of reality returns-
get me home,
i feel belonging in those four walls
only when sleep aggravates on my eyes-
other times it's all about incessant estrangement...
He saw her through tower's window
Silhoulted by candle light
Her beauty quite breath taking
On this cold November night
High alone the tree tops
Imprisoned in the stone
She was extremely pretty
To be trapped there alone
So he fought his way to the top
This damsel deserved his best
He slaughtered the mighty dragon
Blood smeared across his chest
He made his way to the door
Is found to his surprise
He could not break it down
'Cause she made a barrier inside
'You fool !' She hissed and said
I wanted to be here myself
And now my pet is dead
You ruined my castle
With your disgusting little plight
I'm no damsel in distress
Neither your a charming knight
He was the sun, and I was the moon.
Without him, I couldn't illume the night.
I took all the darkness, he had morning and noon,
Without each other, the world wasn't right.
He was the fire, and I was the ice.
He'd bring the chaos without thinking twice.
Whatever flesh he burns, I come to aid.
I touch him without ever being afraid.
He was the ground, and I was the sky.
Aware of each other, but turn a blind eye.
He gave me vapor, I gave him the weather;
It was our only way of being together.
He was the mass, and I was the space.
And without hesitation, in my life, he took place.
I let him consume me, I didn't mind, you see,
I was just happy that somebody needed me.
He was he, and I was me.
What a fool I've been to trust and believe
That we need each other, when the sad truth is,
All there has been for us, was to coexist.
