The Next Time

The next time, will be the best time, better than the last time, anticipating the next time

The next touch, the best touch outlasting the last touch, setting the standard for the next touch

The next kiss, the best kiss, a bliss that fulfills every wish

This time is the best time of all the rest of times

This time is the next time as will be every next time.

The Next Poet’s Exhilarating Dream

I should be back-alley midnight dead
Having seen the last sunset’s vanishing light
Replaced with a gorgeously blood-dripping eternal night
Instead of counting lingering regrets
With lonely and dimming eyes still squinting into the past.
I only wanted to live a limited amount of days
And I’ve pointlessly over-extended my stay…

Had I been a teenage genius
Along the lines of Arthur Rimbaud,
I wouldn’t hesitate to go,

One should create art
And then flee
Like a wild and ruthless bandit
Into the next poet’s exhilarating dream!

The Very Best Of Their Addicting Fictions

A writer who plays with politics,
Is not the same,
As a politician who writes...
To have people read to see it known,
The very best of their addicting fictions told.

And a writer who recites to speak,
May sound as if he could preach.
And from pulpits quote...
The very best of their addicting fictions told.
And no one would ever know.

With eyes closed,
Who should they follow.
Who is perceived to lead.
With eyes closed.
And who...
Eventually is discovered to have credibility,
With the telling of the truth.
Words delivered as they are and not dressed,
In a tailored suit and silk tie with spit shined shoes.

The Next Time That One Comes

There is no satisfaction to one that comes.
To someone who knows another,
Who does something dumb.
When that one came to solicit advice.
Only to ignore it...
To add more weight on the shoulders,
Of the one giving sound advice that is shunned.

And the next time that one comes,
With a decision to make.
The best thing to do...
Is to beat them over the head with a bat!
They will never come back,
To ask for anything else again!
EVER!

However...
One who does take such action,
Should be prepared to endure suffering...
The consequences.
Or...
One could say,
Stress pressured one to lose one's mind.
Do some prison time.
Write a book and appear on Oprah!
Entitle the book, 'If Only I Had An Interest In Gardening'

Before The Next Teardrop Falls

If she brings you happiness
Then I wish you both the best
Its your happiness that matters most of all
But if she ever breaks your heart
If the teardrops ever start
Ill be there before the next teardrop falls
Though it hurts to let you go
Darling I want you to know
Ill run to you if ever you should call
And if I should ever hear
That shes made you shed a tear
Ill be there before the next teardrop falls
Ill be there anytime you need me by your side
To dry away each teardrop youve cried
If she ever leaves you blue
Just remember I love you
And Ill be there
Before the next teardrop falls
Alli estare candor me necesites a tu lado
Para borrar cadda lagrima que haya llorado
If he ever leaves you blue
Just remember I love you
And Ill be there
Before the next teardrop falls
Ill be there, Ill be there
Before the next teardrop falls

Befor The Next Teardrop Falls

If she brings you happiness
Then i wish you both the best
It's your happiness that matters most of all
But if she ever breaks your heart
If the teardrops ever start
I'll be there before the next teardrop falls
Though it hurts to let you go
Darling i want you to know
I'll run to you if ever you should call
And if i should ever hear
That she's made you shed a tear
I'll be there before the next teardrop falls
I'll be there anytime you need me by your side
To dry away each teardrop you've cried
If she ever leaves you blue
Just remember i love you
And i'll be there

Para borrar cadda lagrima que haya llorado

Just remember i love you
And i'll be there
Before the next teardrop falls
I'll be there, i'll be there
Before the next teardrop falls

The Next Step Is Love

(words & music by evans - parnes)
Yesterday, I slipped away
The sun is welcoming the evening shadows
On a perfect day and the next step is love
The next step is love
We walked barefoot through the misty meadows
Laughing at each other in the rain
Made some faces at some people in the park
Didnt bother to explain
Fun, fun, look at us run
Going nowhere special really fast
But weve yet to taste the icing on the cake
That weve been baking with the past
And the next step is love
So what are we waiting for?
The next step is love
Girl, its for sure
Love will be a place to run to
From the world theyve built to you and me
Well be closer than weve ever been
Though looking back its so hard to believe
Hang it all out or bring it all in
The best weve picked upon the way tonight
Changes are coming but together
We can make it through somehow
Yes the next step is love

Wholl Be The Next In Line

Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next in line for heartache?
Wholl make the same mistakes I made over you?
Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next in line?
For you?
Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next to watch your love fade?
All your affections finally fade away.
Therell be no use in sighing.
Wholl be the next in line?
For you?
One day youll find out when Im gone,
I was the best one you had,
I was the one who gave you love.
Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next in line for heartaches?
Wholl make the same mistakes I made over you?
Therell be no use in sighing.
Wholl be the next in line?
For you?
One day youll find out when Im gone,
I was the best one you had,
I was the one who gave you love.
Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next in line for heartaches?
Wholl make the same mistakes I made over you?
Wholl be the next in line?
Wholl be the next in line?
For you?
For you?

The Next Generation

(STARDATE 45122.3. The sensors aboard the Starship Enterprise have detected a subspace anomaly. The nature of the anomaly is as yet unknown, but Commander Data has reported a slight drain on the warp core generator. Captain Jean Luc Picard has alerted the senior crew members to keep him informed of any changes and meanwhile continue on course to the colony on Aldebaran III)


“It must mean we’re really getting old when the only thing we talk about is television, ” I say to Bobby. He sits across from me, the flickering colors from the TV screen playing across his face, the dim light illuminating the room like a lunar landscape.

We are watching episode #232 of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ There are no more new episodes. We have seen this episode before, but we are watching it because it’s better than not watching it. We watch it at the same time every night. We are watching it because we are addicted to its predictable action, its monotone dialog, its hypnotic cinematography. We watch it because we have seen so many episodes that we know all the characters, their life histories, their personal characteristics, their predilections and idiosyncrasies, better than we know some of our own family members.


(Commander Data has been experimenting with oil painting. All of his subjects appear to be meticulously drawn but do not express feeling. Ship’s Counselor Deanna Troi suggests that he attempt abstract art to explore his subjective experience.

Their conversation is interrupted, however, by a message from the bridge. The subspace anomaly has greatly increased in both its size and intensity. If it continues to grow at its present rate the Enterprise will soon be in danger of being drawn into it and being destroyed.)


I feel that my life is slipping away, that I am trapped, helpless, in a void of television shows, TV dinners, and a routine of daily activity, doing the same thing at the same time each day, that makes the days go by as quickly and painlessly as possible. I feel that each week that passes is a week that I will never have again. That I am dying, slowly, the life energy being sucked out of me, a little bit each hour, each day, in a plethora of ‘Seinfeld, ’ ‘Friends’, ‘The X-Files, ” and ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ That I am caught in a time warp and slowly and inexorably being drawn into its vortex.


{The subspace anomaly continues to grow and to draw energy from the Starship’s warp core generator.

“Shields at 14 per cent, ” says Commander Worf.

“At this rate the Enterprise will be destroyed in 13 hours,28 minutes, and 32 seconds, ” says Data.)


Somehow I’ve got to escape from this, to rejoin the flow of humanity, to begin my life once more. If only I could meet the person, write the poem, sing the song, paint the painting. If only I could break the cycle. But it’s too safe remaining here. And I use television like a drug, insulating me from my own feelings, insulating me from my own sense of loss, substituting instead the fictitious emotions of fictitious characters, lived vicariously at the same time each day, with a standardized format designed to keep the self distant, removed, safe, anaesthetized from the pain of indirect living.

Bobby says, “You really know you’ve been watching too much television when everything on the cable is a re-run.”


(Captain’s Log Supplemental: The Enterprise has escaped from the subspace anomaly with 1.4 seconds to spare. The senior officers on the bridge look at each other with a sigh of relief.

“Ensign, lay in a course for Star Base 67, bearing 6571, mark 82, warp six, ” says Picard.

“Engage! ”)

and take back what's been stolen from them!

Fear Of The Next World

I don't have faith in gods and gods men
But have in their influence on their mass.
People are tamed more by the spiritual codes
From their sense of fear for the next world.

The Very Best Poems

The very best poems
are likely written with love
or inspiration
from far above
Each has something that
draws the reader near-
a catchy line or phrase
lasting year after year
So write your poems
not quite as planned,
but with both heart
and pen in hand.

Till The Next

farewell
i have to go
it is 1: 06 in the afternoon
and i will be in court
trying
all the accused
whose destiny
shall lie
on the evidence
in the hands
of their
lying lawyers

till the next
my love
my poetry
we shall be parted

but i will be back
soon

when i am sane again

(ha ha ha
just a joke)

May I Have The Next Dream With You

May I have the next dream with you,
a dream to fill me with happiness?
May I have the next dream with you,
to go and last my whole life through?

May I, May I have the next dream with you
to guide us to the heights of love,
that we may linger there,
together forever,
so may I
have the next dream with you
and only you.

The Next Poem In The Prison

The seed of war grows well,
On the farm of hatred;
I abhor wars,
Though my victory be certain;
I abhor enforced exodus,
And the camps too,
The camps peep out of my eyes,
I am in search of
Absolute peace and liberty,
My search winks at me.
I am with peace,
And my fate is isolation,
I shall write,
The next poem in the prison.

(Written by Jawaaz Jafri Translated by Muhammad Shanazar)

See You In The Next One (Have A Good Time)

How hard is it for me to wait for you
See you in the next one have a good time
Could be a lifetime before I see you again
See you in the next one have a good time
Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way
It was hate the way it is now
Lack of time and a wasted week end
You wore your lies like a filmstar
Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way it was
Hate the way it is now
