21 November 2012 *
We see it fallin' down like an old tower
Took it for granted, all b'yond our power
We never saved it, thought t’was b'yond repair
But the next things took us unprepared
I want to begin again, despite the worry
By sayin', I’m wholeheartedly sorry
For bein’ so coward and disdain
I know it costed you so much pain
I want to begin again, as long as it takes
By acknowledgin' these simple mistakes
And hope you’d forgive 'n' forget
These faults are mine alone to regret
I want to begin again, after all
Like the first time we met last Fall
T’was fated, but still feels surreal
T’is heart— hope will mend ‘n’ heal
I want to begin again, like this
When we have no one to diss
Like the last time we met in the house
When all the anger ‘n’ aches arouse
I want to begin again, without a clue
By bein' honest, simple, and true
B’cause they don’t know about us
Our nightmares turn from dreams to dusts
My lips tell it’s no joke to me
Take a look into my eyes and you’ll see
Can we do it all over again, minus the pain?
B’cause I just want us to begin again
Don't we just want to begin again, sometimes? x
10 Haiku of Raven
Huge cumulus clouds,
Exploding into the blue,
. . . Shadowed by raven.
Dark hands working fields,
Raven tracing mountain crests,
. . . Carnal tillers wake.
Dark sound raven makes,
Chortles top fir tree, haunting—
. . . Druids incantation.
Snow covers valley—
Solitary raven staining world,
. . . Love has turned black.
Many years alone,
Suddenly— old thoughts of her,
. . . Lone raven in sky.
Lone raven cackles . . .
Clouds splinter across the sky,
. . . Mist cuts down the woods.
Full moon crowns tall pine,
Raven landing in cross hairs,
. . . Dark angels halo.
Raven knows a charm,
A child's costume jewelry,
. . . Colours a black eye.
Zenith of winter—
Lone raven in naked tree,
. . . Spring only legend.
In his feathered dress . . .
Raven shrouds beneath the clouds,
. . . Even eyes are black.
