dessert

they are the same, lively as ever.
sparks flying, laughter ringing. hell, you could probably hear the birds chirping if you tried.
but the other one is in the background, peering in
not glaring,
seeming to stand higher than anyone else
but only in her mind.
in others’ she’s just bearing

she lives in the dry, empty, lonely land
she lives alone
and yet she holds a poker hand
stronger than any one, because of the ice that grows in her bones

as they continue to travel, on angels, horses, camels, or even, devils
everything but alert

she continues to
be
a dessert

thunder

leaping up, holding on, bowing down
whispering, screaming, laughing
aloud
the feeling, the might, the strength, the sight …

the sound
inside
of me

in a place just sea red
the one that gives me life.
because you can’t save someone who’s already dead.

blemish

no crack in the sky
not a single spot
rift
or crack
and yet, i deny

centerpiece

the perfect centerpiece? yeah…. where in this miserable world am I supposed to get that? something perfect, untarnished, unscratched? look up. then may be you’ll see it. not here, not with me.
because Cinderella wasted her time going to a stupid ball at midnight, lying and sneaking out, a stranger kissed sleeping beauty and she married him. snow white was a gentle person– who also lived alone with seven men.
so, yes, no one’s perfect. so your center piece can be nobody.

obey

that’s easy, straight in my face, even thought sometimes I stray. I don’t care of those who disagree, the signs are all there. So, there is one that I’ll obey : God.

anywhere

anywhere. I’m stuck, not at any place nor a particular destination. I’m just…. HERE .
and i think may be the journey’s more important than the actual end?
or how could THAT be, when that’s all that seems to matter?

may be I won’t wait, I’ll stop thinking, then I’ll be anywhere. I’ll be here and there, and where ever you’re eyes go… I’ll be ….
um, well, anywhere

skyline

that is the most blurriest of all.I’m lost and you can see me. you know the way, and lend me your hand, but I’m blind to your kindness and can’t help but sigh
if only i was wonderful
if only i could see
if only i weren’t lost
then, may be my sanity would still be with me

museum

old ruins, field trips, walking together, a history of forever.
I’d like to turn back and touch the glistening sky
but I’m stuck in the moment
like I’ll forever be
always looking back.
waiting for the right moment to see…

you.

icicle

snow, snow, come already
waiting for the winter lude to begin its wonders…
sharp ice dripping down
you’d think i’d be a cool hearted soul
but its wonderful; those lone crystals
shimmering from what was
in places like the bottom of the window sill
a place i wish you would come
i shall wait in anticipation,
for that wide grin
when you and i see the white house tops
without any sin

beginning

i want to go back to the beginning …. when my heart was pure, and i could see the world in clarity and in ease for what it was rather than what it could have been. But that’ ll never happen, and that’s okay because I’ll start my own beginning all over again. like they say, a new chapter in a your book, or a whole new book even. Beginnings.
They’re scary, but they’re
beautiful.
they happen after an end, but only to end again.
they’re continuous… on and on they go..
beginnings. today is our beginning… no?

positively

today was a good day. for no particular reason, i was happy today :)
it made me think of him, who always has this positive vibe… i couldn’t help but look his way every now and then… and he never seemed to look away.
and then i thought how people don’t smile enough. from now on, I’m going to try to smile, even when I’m down… because my problems aren’t the most desperate, dire things in the world. there are others that need caring and love. I’m not going to let myself drown in despair.
and when those moments arrive, when I can’t help but sigh, and look down and insult myself to the core, I’m going to remember that it isn’t the end of the world, but rather how I act today will determine how the world will end… for me, anyway. so thank you, God.
I’m going to try to be positive about that around me. for once. to put a smile on my face and that of others.

downpour

falling from the sky like the rain.
there’s a downpour of everything that I’d ever thought sane…
almost reaching for the cold, damp ground.
when I’m there, he’ll be on the top, and she’ll be just steps away.
I’ll simply watch as the crowd’ll move forward. as the people smile, talk, cry and laugh,
I’ll watch. I’ll do what I’m doing now.
as he climbs the rope of life, I’ll simply be holding on.
as she gets kissed, i won’t turn away… and may be, just that once, I’ll let the tears fall
I’ll say thanks, i always will
for that pure salt water that drains from the only part of me that’s real
the trouble is,
i don’t know where it is.
he said that i had a lot to say
the trouble was,
only the thorns came out.

where’s the rose?
i have to find it before it rots into stone.

and here comes the hurricane…
may be tomorrow’s yesterday will smile

still

still. at the top of the hill.
i cant bring myself to breathe.
to take a single step.
to shed a freakin tear.
everywhere i look, everyone’s moving on like nothing happened.
and God.. i get so angry. so mad.
the green light will turn red soon… may be that’s when ill move.
may be then.
for now, i stand. for now, ill be a brick wall. ill stare into space until i find the will
for now, il just stand
STILL

automatic

We’d been on the brink of splitting away, lingering at the stage where we both knew things were over, and yet, like a car we weren’t quite ready yet o sell, we kept patching and paying for small repairs, waiting for something huge, like the transmission to blow.

relate

I heard the Ocean today.

My mind replayed your sighs
And I heard your last goodbyes

Near the downtown beach
It slowly moved my feet

It all came back to me;

Your fingers laced in mine,
Pulsed the waves so fine
My ear to your chest
I heard an ocean, yes.

And I fell in love when I heard you laugh;
Won’t you take me away with it,
Like you used to?

Because it was only your name I traced in the sands
Your smile like the sunrise, sang;
Set the clouds and sherbet sky on fire.

Even before a minute of comprehension,
My veins were flooded by the shores of your adoration

It settles in – memories fade away
The sea water becomes dry,
And mockingbirds forget how to fly

The coast becomes barren

Did I say, I heard your voice?
Did I say, my feet led me here?
Well now the waves rarely roar,

And I can’t here the ocean anymore

dull

everything is dull with you around. you suck the beauty, the bright wondrous colours out

a blunt shade
as you pass by in your odyssey
the thickness of the ferns
insipid with your sight.
you miss it. everything around you with your eyes wide open.
your heart hardened
you know your drowning, you wake up, but choose to keep your eyes closed.
it is not that established sentimental moment, when you know its time.
rather, you choose to deny the eternity and get wrapped in this fictional dismal

its edgeless. this eagle that sours into everything that could have been.
“good bye my twin”.

spring

the time when flowers bloom from all of the rain.
you know i read somewhere, those who laugh the most, often have experiences the most pain. that actually made my day– i know no matter how much pain I’ve been through, they’ll still be a laugh. there’ ll be rain, but i love the rain.
and then the spring comes again.
it comes again.

conviction

i know with all my heart.
i have the most firm of beliefs
written in the black and white state of art
its the conviction
that there’s a purpose to exist
faith.

stacks

the stories are stacked up high, their fingertips reaching out– far
the eyes staring out into the unseen
to the world of the bizarre
“let’s try to sing to the stars”
i think: what ever do you mean?

mystery

she looks into my eyes for a brief second while reaching over for a magazine, and continues her day. She leaves the office just as she did the first time. And on her way home, she has to cross the train tracks. The wheel of her bike gets stuck– just as she hears the fierce sound of the train rushing towards her. She ponders on what to do, as those intrepid moments that meant nothing to her, and those that meant everything to her; flashing before her eyes. The lights shine brightly as she stares, unable to move. And as the blood splatters– she finds herself back in the doctor’s office, repeating the day she dies over and over. The only way to escape it, is to break the spell — to stop herself from looking into my eyes for that brief moment.

setting

once upon a time, in a far far land, dating back to 1958…. when the moon was shining high and there was that peaceful moment of silence. above the treetops, where no one could see…. it felt almost sereal.

warned

i was warned
of that thing those people call their own– of the where the ocean ends, and the sky begins
but really… the water only can walk so far.
Warned of what could have happened .
what would have happened.
of what it means to live. to smile.
i was warned but i didn’t take caution. i didn’t pause to think the water would only get me dry.
i went for the plunge. i dove. and–
no.
it didn’t end up like in those sappy movies, i didn’t fly. i didn’t even cry.
i was warned. and i all but didn’t try.
like the creatures in the sea…
draining the light and saying good bye.
but in your defense: you warned me.
