It’s a coloured and shaded broad daylight.
Bring me my hourglass, my paintbrush.
Keeping a timepiece, how soon my brush
strokes become finer it is not the task.
Try once more, strike a fine chord in time,
ever ticking but doesn't make a sound!  

Let’s read the small prints, the shadow lines
on the pitch of the slit sun shines!
A dark spot in the light, some dotted lines
on a blank paper, however witty you might
describe it, count on the tweeting birds
short and cute, singing in the open air.

Light and dark the two tallies, ins and outs.
The times come and go, flowing fine.
For now, let’s take a look inside.
Tint and shade nor tone them now.
Zoom in and out, just watch them as they are.

This cool sleek shade on the sunny slate
is it a shadow, or some quivering curly hairs
or are these reflections of flocking clouds,
diligent sea eyeing deep down on the ground?
Read the small prints, shadows in the daylight,
before the show is wrapped up.
And down the evening pool, the sun
parts away with the black swan.

We will sail away
on the wings of the moonlight
over the lakes of the blue
we'll cross the starry nooks.

We will go, we’ll go far beyond
where the flow is musical
every air beat plays the lute.
You and me we’re only one
who says we’re two?
Edger Allan Poe inspired me
Shakespeare educated me
Maya Angelou raised me
These writers created a beast in me
A beast of emotions, words that lack definitions
Only existsting in my expressions

Ideal to the common citizen
I write with a pen full of love, curiosity and pain

Emotions that have gone blind, to common sense, and swallowed a pill full of ego

I realize I am worthless without this pen and this pain

I write of love as if I feel it
I write of Justice as if I need it
I write of human behavior as if I need to fix it

If I am to die let my words live on within your emotions when you read them
Forever and ever I hope you feel them

A union between two,
Two souls entwined by time,
Causality bringing them together,
Free will an illusion, of mans greedy eyes,
Love twisting souls together,
To grow like two saplings,
Planted too close,
Twisting up to heaven,
A union of souls,
Connected for eternity.
Even if they are separated.

Cause and effect,
The fabric of our world,
Bending to the whims of man,
A person in Rome,
A mother in Babylon,
A warrior in Norway
A time far from here,
Even now,
Impacts the life of their descendants,
By having lived at all .

Let me take you on a magical music journey into the Souls of songs, you may get lost, scared, excited, or discover a whole different something, but, that's ok it may be fun.
Let's start with a fun song that makes you want to get up and feel like dancing, you go dance, be free, dance for fun of it. Dance until the songs ends, as the song ends, with the tapping of your foot still tapping to the fun song, as it still plays in your head, that's good, your body, your mind, How does it feel? It feels as if your body is floating, it feels as if your mind is clear, as to nothing can change it, either of them, now that was a fun start.  
Now let's slow it down just a bit, a song that you can still dance to, but you got to like it, and has a little more meaning, you got to listen though, listen closer to the words, there you have it now, you're dancing with more meaning, as to let the song tell your heart to take over your body, now as you feel this, you start to dance as to feel the song, let it go slowly, and finish your dance with heart and smoother step, now you're feeling as if something touch your heart, tug it a bit, Doesn't it feel good? It does, it's like walking, well, still dancing as if you are in the air, hold on to that, Are you lost? Dazed maybe!
If not lets get deep than...
This one might scare you, might take you into whole different world, it scared me at first, but don't worry, now we are going to take a song and slow it way down, a song with so much deeper meaning, one that means something to you, you're going to have to sit down for this one, really clear your mind, open your heart, let your body relax, if you want close your eyes, I like to close mine it's wild. You got it? Now turn that song on, breath... and go. Did I lose you? I hope so! There's a feeling like no other with this song, it's like you're light headed, listen to the words, you're feeling the words, with your heart, you're finally lost in the song, it's talking to you though, just keep listening, to feel it deep within, let it get inside your Soul, your Soul will dance like no other, isn't it great? It's like an ecstasy high, it's a rush of emotions, you don't understand, but you will in time, embrace this moment, you're at one with this song, it's yours, run away and never let it go, lost aren't you? I got lost as well.
It's ok to get lost in songs, it's good for your heart, and Soul, now that you went on this magical musical journey into the Souls of songs with me, now take what you have and enjoy the music with a deeper meaning and feeling, as for me I took all songs in as for I can get lost in any fast, slow, and songs that have deep meanings, to do this, just go back on that journey to Souls of songs, songs are more than dancing, and calling it your song, songs speak more deeply if you just listen with your heart, and Soul, not with your ears or head, so let songs guide you, let the Soul of the song in, You'll be free, Songs are the music path to our Souls...

A shaman or witch doctor,
Days of ages old,
Secret knowledge,
Locked away, in old ragged bones,
Buried in a mound,
Hidden in the trees,
A tribe taken by time,
Ancient secrets known only by whispers,
Passed down by dreams,
And no longer by the shamans that learned them.

load your bullets
in the firing chamber
and they'll fly
from your lips,
ricochet and lodge
past the scarce armor
of my ribcage
into this glass heart of mine
     let my insecurities bleed out
                         don't staunch the flow


pierce my skin
with the shards of my heart
end my misery,
squeeze the trigger
with practiced ease
     breathe in,
          breathe out
               breathe in,
                    breathe out


                             *(you'll find another victim
                              downrange of you)
find someone else for target practice, asshole.

When you stepped in my door,
I realised I was Paradise
in my heart and soul.
You were so surefooted
because you came up from the high.
So long I longed for it.
O Fathima, only to kiss your feet!

The time was so sweet,
beyond anyone’s dream
only in pure beauty
I was rendering,
screaming to new highs.
I did it my way!
Lovely bouncing on
my polished pitch,
the rivers forget to flow
back to the seas.
But no one knew
where my toe melts!
Until you did
and took me for a tread
closer to your spring,
my sweet dream:
O Fathima, only to kiss your feet!

Your so pleased man wished
to rain down with love,
but humble you hid your feet!
You blinded the moon, snowed it
away under seven seas.
No wonder it's
your winning footing.
Like the Prophet said:
I found me the heaven
beneath the mother’s feet.
O Fathima, only on your feet!
Added to the climax,
Two tears flow alike.
Washing, dashed away,
Demons play 'Armored Knights'-
Down the drain, floods the worry,
Unworthy until royalty courses.
They've attempted sieging you,
Galloping on horded horses.
Like monsters inside out,
Their acts slashed you private.
Forever cut up in armor,
A hero proclaiming violence-
An old poem fixed up
