William Shakespeare

Sonnet 13: O, that you were your self! But, love, you are

O, that you were your self! But, love, you are
No longer yours than you yourself here live.
Against this coming end you should prepare,
And your sweet semblance to some other give.
So should that beauty which you hold in lease
Find no determination; then you were
Yourself again after yourself's decease,
When your sweet issue your sweet form should bear.
Who lets so fair a house fall to decay,
Which husbandry in honour might uphold
Against the stormy gusts of winter's day
And barren rage of death's eternal cold?
O, none but unthrifts! Dear my love, you know,
You had a father; let your son say so.

You and Your Neighbor

You are correct!
I will not get upset,
Over those things your neighbor
Has done to you.
Nor do I care about those things shared,
The two of you choose to do!

You and your neighbor,
Have been doing what you do for years.
That what has been done now escalates?
Is none of my business.
I've never been invited on your discreet escapades.
And today I could care less,
About this mess going on between you two.

You are correct!
I will not get upset,
Over those things your neighbor
Has done to you.
Nor do I care about those things shared,
The two of you choose to do!

Remember then when I made my comments?
And you said to me,
My comments made were making you about to vomit?
You should have purged then!
Not today!
When you're knee deep in the mess you are in!

You are correct!
I will not get upset,
Over those things your neighbor
Has done to you.
If anything,
I congratulate you both!
You have graduated from avoidable ignorance...
To flat out public scrutiny that is assessed as stupidity.

No!
I do not want a cup of coffee.
I prefer these days to walk in peace,
And alone!

Who Was That Bird In Your Poem?

and who was that bird in your poem?

she asked
you answered
it could be me or her or him
or anybody
and she felt that we conspired
against her

such a poor bird
what a rich poem!

I Can't Pretend That I Am Your Superman

I can pretend that I am your
Superman
Because the poor people in our community
Is starving and I need to give them a helping hand
By sharing some of my food with them
I can pretend that I am your superman
Even though we are wasting so much food
That could easily feed the entire community
And it is shame on us
Because we don't think of the others that are poor
In our communities that are starving and living
On the streets of our community

Make that part of 'your' act

You don't like what I say.
Or the topics that I write.
You don't like my performance,
When I recite?

I am so glad you are here.
It is now your time,
To take the spotlight away from me...
And to show your abilities at centerstage.

Why do you look afraid?
Make that part of 'your' act.
With the spitting of your venom.
You never know who might be out there,
Appreciating what you do and attracted to that!

What are you searching for?
Some assistance?
You didn't seem to mind,
To critique my performance.
And I was out there on my own.

To Whatever That Is Sustaining Your Thoughts

To whatever that is sustaining your thoughts.
And whatever your beliefs are that has brought you here...
To experience 'your' life as it is.
Ask of 'It' to lift you from conflict.
If conflicts have been married to your thoughts.
You can divorce from whatever it is you wish.
If you so choose.
Like the decision to wear your hair as is.
Or your selection of dress.
Address whatever that is with honesty.
If in doing this you feel victimized...
You are not understanding your life.
So how do you expect anyone else,
To provide your happiness.
When you have no clue what that is!

Pablo Neruda

Sonnet XIII:The light that rises from your feet to your hair

The light that rises from your feet to your hair,
the strength enfolding your delicate form,
are not mother of pearl, not chilly silver:
you are made of bread, a bread the fire adores.

The grain grew high in its harvest of you,
in good time the flour swelled;
as the dough rose, doubling your breasts,
my love was the coal waiting ready in the earth.

Oh, bread your forehead, your legs, your mouth,
bread I devour, born with the morning light,
my love, beacon-flag of the bakeries:

fire taugh you a lesson of the blood;
you learned your holiness from flour,
from bread your language and aroma.

You Gave Me Life (with That Look In Your Eyes)

(sylvester / clarke)
Picked up the phone called theres no one at home
You said youd be there for my call
Did I do right by staying home tonight
All I know is Im so alone
You made a date said you wouldnt be late
Thats when my hopes started to rise
I didnt really know ya you said "i wanna show ya"
And I believed that look in your eyes
Well you gotta give me life
You gave me life
You gotta give me life
With that look in your eyes
Chorus
Went out on the street just a chance we might meet
The chance well it came to order
I saw you standing there baby without a care
Giving the same line to a guy on the corner
Dont know your name
Dont know your game
Its such a shame oh yeah
Repeat
Chorus

That Works In Your Favor

Just because you've done something,
For a very long time...
Does not mean you have an acquired skill.
Or expertise.
However...
At least you can adapt to routine.
And you are loyal to redundancy.
That deserves a highlight.

Now...
Whether or not this should be considered creative,
Depends upon your ambitions.
And getting out of bed to come here...
Expresses a willingness to embrace change.
But the watching of television with consistency...
I would not regard that as a talent.

I recommend you redo this resumé.
Remove your picture with the ascot.
I understand the presentation.
Add something technical like:
'Ability to monitor for long periods of time.'
Pehaps then,
My staff and I could 'locate' a security position for you.
Plus you have the presence of a watchdog.
Dark, big and muscular!
'That' works in your favor!

Take That Sack Off Your Back

Take that sack off your back.
And start tracking...
Your own path!
No need to set a trap.
That keeps you handicapped.

Take that sack off your back.
And start tracking...
Your own path!
No need to set a trap.

You can,
Decide what to do.
You can,
Choose a route that suits.
You can,
Buckle up...
To a life you want so much.

Just know that you can,
Buckle up...
To a life you want so much.

That Sadness In Your State

an autobiography appears life a blurred picture
you are lost in the tracks of the past
greatness is never spotted
because you have considered each as a mere folder
another item, just like any other number that slides from your fingers
then something bites you
the pain makes you jerk, and you begin to watch carefully the tip of
your thumb,
this hurts, who is this? who are you?
and you know the person well,
the one that hurt you makes you remember a name
the face sticks in your brain
somehow, you remember, he is the greater one which you did not mind
and now you claim
we were together in that same school of thought
and i believe you,

why do you have to be like that? when there is no scream there is no one.
when you do not hear the jump into the storm from the ship of prolonged
blot of dark blue color, or that scarlet of bloody discrimination
from the rest of the oppressing humanity
then
that is the only time that you begin to mind
that there is someone out there and he is calling for help

why do you think of help only when you are dying yourself?
why do you begin to think of caring when you are hurt yourself?

you only feel, when the pain starts to take its house in you.

That Look In Your Eye

(ali)
Show me a girl peace and harmony in her heart
When things go wrong there will be no falling apart
One who understands
That things arent always gonna go right and
Ill show you a man who can show you the light
(pamela)
Show me a boy when the burdens on his shoulders
As time goes on seems to only make him bolder
Then I met you
Something that I cant explain
This feeling that I get is like Im going insane
Its that look in your eyes that say you love me
And all the silly things that you do
Those feelings I get from the stars above me
Tells me youre for me
And Im the one for you
Hey I thank you baby
I thank you baby
I thank you
(ali)
Show me a girl that can me feel better
With a kiss sealed inside a perfumed letter
One who understands
When the tour is six months long
And waiting with open arms cos its been too long
(pamela)
Show me a boy whose loving that Im missing
Who can be there when I need someone to listen
One who keeps in mind that I should never be alone
Because Ill be there even if its by telephone
Its that look in your eyes that say you love me
And all the silly things that you do
Those feelings I get when ever youre near me
Tells me youre for me
And Im the one for you
Yeah I thank you baby
I thank you baby
Yeah I thank you baby
Yeah I thank you baby
I thank you

The Ten Commandments

I believed the Ten Commandments,
Were sins we were not to commit.
And I understand them as 'commands'!
And not to be applied as 'we' see fit!

Some live their lives,
As if these are not legitimate.
And comprehending the opposite,
To inflict upon a consciousness...
An increasingly reflected mental misfitness.
With a clear misunderstanding...
That our Creator is not pleased one bit!

These commandments we should take heed.
And immediately revisit!

I am the Lord your God
You shall have no other gods before me
You shall not make for yourself an idol
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy
Honor your father and mother
You shall not murder
You shall not commit adultery
You shall not steal
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife
You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor

'Look, Yo...
Ain't these 'commandments'?
Ain't these things we suppose to do? '

Noooo! ...yeeeesss, but no!
You are 'not' suppose to do these things.
You are suppose to 'do' these things!

'Oh!
Ooooh!
So, they are commands 'meant'
Not to do what is commanded? '

Let me put this another way!
See my fist?
Even though I am tempted,
To hit you in the head with it...
AND that might bring unto me,
A temporary satisfaction?
Something inside of me,
Is preventing me not to do it.

'Oh,
I see.
Would it be the gun you know I have in my car?
And you know I can command it in minutes? '

Let's just dropp the subject.

'Yeah!
I command we do! '

Isolde - If Only You'd Be Mine

You give to me the morning sun that dances in your smile
A flower wild among the stones upon a rocky isle
A lonely wood with hidden paths where we can walk awhile

You lead me by the hand through nights into the waking days
Through swinging gates in mirrored walls and through the midnight haze
Through castles built in sandbox realms in children's yesterdays

You give to me a ragged doll, a puppet on a string
A ride upon a rocking horse, a swallow on the wing
A ribbon trailing from your hair, a red or scarlet thing

You whisk me from a valley deep wherein a black wind blows
And tracks upon the empty sands are hidden by the snows,
And share with me your secret thoughts and steal away my woes

You give to me a silver flute, a whistle on a chain
A drummer boy with dancing feet, a sugar candy cane
A window flushed with foolish tears and pitter-patter rain

You lead me from the crazy streets, beyond the circus towns,
Beyond the smoky memories, beyond the weeping clowns,
Beyond a frozen melody and sorrows that it drowns

You give to me a penny plain to cast upon a dream,
A falling star upon the sky, a bridge across a stream,
A teddy bear with tattered ears and berries dipped in cream

You show me where a rainbow lights upon a liquid land
Where dew drops paint the purple leaves deserted on the sands
On roads of simple wonderment within your tender hands

You give to me in winter's chill your ragged scarf of thread,
A blazing ball of candle wax, a fire dripping red,
And share with me (a rhyming clown) your yearning arms... and bed

You spin me tales of laughter, yes, of laughter on a spree
Of laughter restless in the sky, of laughter running free
Of laughter dancing skipping wildly far beyond the sea

I give to you these careless words, arrayed in broken lines,
Adorned, my love, with tempest winds and teardropp salty brine,
In cups of youthful passion steeped in desolation wine,
And promise I'm forever yours...
if only you'd be mine.

Their Fences And Yours

it is a rainy day and you look for
that nearest
available shade, this time, your neighbor's house
it is fenced and about five steps away
their closed door
some bushes hide what supposedly should have been
an open space
like a warm embrace of the arms

the door bell does not sound and you have no other choice
you change your mind and walk away back to your house
it too is fenced, like what they do.

Smile At Me :)

Smile at me
that smile, that finds me in the crowd
The one that lights up the room
And makes the world not seem so loud

Smile at me
that smile, that dances upon your laughter
The one that settles into the charming grin
I always remember after

Smile at me
That smile, that always makes me smile
The one thats completely contagious
And lasts a whole long while

Smile at me
That smile, when my world feels grey
That smile, that smile
The one that chases sorrows away

Even for a moment…
Won’t you smile at me that smile?
If only for a moment
Smile at me…

Poetics 4...

good for you man
you are lucky
filthy rich they say

when you are filled
with guilt
you fly to thailand
and ride one
of its boats on the
mekong river

you float upon the
murkiness of your
thoughts

that is good
your neighbor touches
his chin
and nods

people here have been
killing themselves
as though they have
nine lives like
the legendary cat

of course even with
nine lives
because of that hasty
hate
they never ask
whoever
that they come back
and begin their
beings again

so no one has ever
spoken inside
that dream
no one haunts like
a horror story

everyone speaks about
a certain silence
hints about a slim sorrow
it is a world of
anything goes of
anything said
but there is nothing
really direct as
flat as a wall with
white paint all over

there are sketches, etchings,
somethings
come-ons, let go's
no one minds at all
everyone is busy
wanting to understand
but no one really
does
the real thing

swans floating on the river
butterflies floating on air
dirigibles exploding finally
over the news...

If Ever

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on dreamland express album, and has also been released on the country roads collection album.
Id sing you a song, without a word
Still you would hear my tune
Id give you a day, without a time
So it wont end too soon
Anything, I would do
And that really is my point of view
If ever, my darling in my life
I ever had a chance to love you
Id build you a world made of the dream
That dances on your head
Take a rainbow with colours bright
To hang over your head
Anything, I would do
And that really is my point of view
If ever, my darling in my life
I ever had a chance to love you
Fates been waiting for the right time
To put us in each others arms
But why should we sit and waste time
To start right now would do no harm
Give me a sign and I will show you
The magic of when I speak
Open your heart, let me come in
My love is yours to keep
Anything, I would do
And that really is my point of view
If ever, my darling in my life
I ever had a chance to love you
If I ever had a chance to love you
If I ever had a chance to love you

Chicago Is So Two Years Ago

my heart is on my sleeve
wear it like a bruise or blackeye
my badge, my witness
that means that i believed
every single lie you said (and learned from the best)
cause every pain of glass that your pebbles tap negates
the pains i went through to avoid you
and every little pat on the shoulder for attention fails to mention i still hate you
but there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's house
she took me down and said:
"boy's like you are overrated. so save your breath."
loaded words and loaded friends
are loaded guns to our heads
cause every pain of glass that your pebbles tap
negates the pains i went through to avoid you
and every little pat on the shoulder for attention fails to mention i still hate you
but there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's house
you want apologies
girl, you might hold your breath
until your breathing stops forever, forever
the only thing you'll get
is this curse on your lips:
i hope they taste of me forever
there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's
with every breath i wish your body will be broken again
