I always felt that a scientist owes the world only one thing, and that is the truth as he sees it.

One Thing That I Miss

one thing that i miss
is not found in you,
it is something, yet it is
illusive, like a an eclipse
in seconds
i dim the world
only to disappear and give
you back
your own light
but you will miss what i miss
and i come back only
once every thousand years
of your life
sort of
you do not find me and i do not
really find you
we meet and we miss again
like parallel lines
always going seeing and talking
and in the silence of it all
always unflinching

two lines that never
meet


this is the price that we pay
for our
sacred hypocrisy.

The Only One

What's been going on
I've been trying to get through to you
Has it really been that long
I've been thinking about you baby
And the way it used to be
There's so many things I want to say
But will the words come out all wrong
After all that's said and done
You're still the only one
You're the only one for me
I'm the only one for you
Baby can't you see, you're still the only one
Each and ever nite I pray,
Hoping there will come a day
Baby you belive, you're still the only one
Got to find a way

When You Have Nothing To Say But Simply Look At Things

you feast upon facts.
and facts dance around you
showing the best that they can be
though not as beautiful
as always
for at times facts can be so
damn hurting.

and when hurt
you feel the uselessness of words
that like daggers
may have only the function of stabbing
you more

you bleed and you look at yourself
so helplessly
bleeding

you have nothing to say
you remember only one thing
and this they notice
with glee

you keep on looking at the injury
your hands busy wiping
the blood

your mouth blowing the pain away
hushing
soothing.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

A Baby In The House

I knew that a baby was hid in that house,
Though I saw no cradle and heard no cry;
But the husband was tip-toeing 'round like a mouse,
And the good wife was humming a soft lullaby;
And there was a look on the face of the mother,
That I knew could mean only one thing, and no other.

The mother, I said to myself, for I knew
That the woman before me was certainly that;
And there lay in a corner a tiny cloth shoe,
And I saw on a stand such a wee little hat;
And the beard of the husband said, plain as could be,
'Two fat chubby hands have been tugging at me.'

And he took from his pocket a gay picture-book,
And a dog that could bark, if you pulled on a string;
And the wife laid them up with such a pleased look;
And I said to myself, 'There is no other thing
But a babe that could bring about all this, and so
That one thing is in hiding somewhere, I know.'

I stayed but a moment, and saw nothing more,
And heard not a sound, yet I know I was right;
What else could the shoe mean that lay on the floor,
The book and the toy, and the faces so bright;
And what made the husband as still as a mouse?
I am sure, very sure, there's a babe in that house.

Pink Cadillac

You may think Im fooling
For the foolish things I do
You may wonder how come I love you
When you get on my nerves like you do
Well baby, you know you bug me
There aint no secret about that
Well come on over here and hug me
And, baby, Ill spill the facts
Well, honey it aint your money
Cause baby I got plenty of that
I love you for your pink cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a saturday night
Honey, I just wonder what you do there in back of your pink cadillac
Pink cadillac
Well now way back in the bible, temptations always come along
Theres always somebody tempting you
Somebody into doing something they know is wrong
Well they tempt you man with silver and they tempt you sir with gold
And they tempt you with the pleasures that the flesh does surely hold
They say eve tempted adam with an apple
Man I aint going for that
I know it was her pink cadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back, oozing down the street
Waving to the girls
Feeling out of sight
Spending all my money on a saturday night
Honey, I just wonder what you do there in back of your pink cadillac
Now some folks say its too big and uses too much gas
Some folks say its too old and that it goes too fast
But my love is bigger than a honda, its bigger than a subaru
Hey man theres only one thing and one car that will do
Anyway we dont have to drive it honey, we can park it out in back
And have a party in your pink cadillac

Unconditional Love

You could give me diamonds
You could give me pearls
Give me all the fast cars
In the world
But there is only one thing
And it's bigger than the sea
The only thing that matters
Is what you've given me

And I say

When I see the bright lights in your eyes
Feel like a bird that's just learned to fly
From now until the end of time
I'm glad you came into my life
My gift sent from above
Unconditional love

You take me as I am
Not who I'm dressed up to be
Looking at you tells me
The best things in life are free
You're the blessing that I treasure
With heart so true
No one ever touched me
The way that you do

And I say

When I see the bright lights in your eyes
Feel like a bird that's just learned to fly
From now until the end of time
I'm glad you came into my life
My gift sent from above
Unconditional love

With your innocence you opened up my heart
I knew that I would love you right from the very start
You turned my life around showed me a better way
Thoughts of you will always make me have a brighter day
When I'm by your side it helps to see me through
Can't express all the happiness when I'm with you
A gift from up above the one I'm dreaming of
I'll always cherish you my unconditional love

When I see the bright lights in your eyes
Feel like a bird that's just learned to fly
From now until the end of time
I'm glad you came into my life (I'm glad you came into my life)
My gift sent from above
Unconditional love

Gift sent from above
Unconditional love
Gift sent from above
Unconditional love

My unconditional love

Written by: j. pankow/g. oconnor
Whats been goin on
Ive been tryin to get through to you
Has it really been that long?
Ive been thinkin about you baby
And the way it used to be
Theres so many things I want to say
But will the words come out all wrong?
After all thats said and done

Baby cant you see
Youre still the only one
Each and every night I pray
Hopin therell come a day
Baby you believe
Youre still the only one
Got to find a way
To get back inside your heart again
If I let you walk away
Id be dyin without you baby
So I just keep holdin on
Dont you know we were meant to be
But then I knew it all along
After all that weve been through
Youre still the only one
Youre the only one for me
Im the only one for you
Baby cant you see
Youre still the only one
Each and every night I pray
Hopin therell come a day

And the fire of our love
Keeps me runnin back to you
And no matter where you are

Youre the only one for me sweet darlin

The Poem Started To Be One Thing

The Poem started to be one thing
And became another -
It lost its way
And became mixed up-
To save it was to divide into two or three
But this was to lose it also-
Perhaps the mixed- up poem is the true poem
And the poem pure in one theme is only an abstraction no one needs -

The poem whose subject is its own writing
Is a minor poem
And one of lesser feeling-
I write this poem now as if I know
Even within myself
There are better, if less or more pure poems elsewhere

Sonnet - Virtues Stay Forever

Just as how light dispels any darkness,
So also, knowledge drives off ignorance;
Revenge is captive held by forgiveness,
Lies are held in check by Truth's performance.

The world does one thing and says another;
The world says one thing and does something else;
You can't rely on your own dear brother;
To lie and to deceive, the world compels.

The paint of cheating flakes with time;
Mere bricks of truth get soon exposed to all;
Nothing distorts the beauty of a rhyme;
The foundation matters too, for a wall.
Yet, people prefer vices to virtues,
The rope that draws well-water ain't a noose.

Wonder Poem

She was a rockhard
Firm chassied, sleek
Chic, two toned
Wonder of a poem

Her smile could
turn you on a dime
Make you feel that
You've been left undone

She had a way
with her words
That made me
smile now in my tears

Her rear end
Never shimmied
Her trunk never
left undone

Her steering wheel
Was a half 'C'
And made up a
perfect curve

Her wheels were firmly
planted and
she never missed
the curves

Her dual exhausts
Made all in chrome
Under pressure
made her growl

Her six speed
Powertrain now
was made to
make you squeal

She could throw
you back into you seat
On takeoff
Oh, now with such a force

She knew of
Only one thing
And that was how
She was going to lead

Her glass was
Crystaline clear
Everything inside
You could see my dear

One word you
Never saw
And that word now
Was to 'hide'

Yes when it came it came
To performance
She came out
Dressed to kill

That's now my
Wonder poem
And it's time I
Give her all the gas

In the spirit of Rumi - 50 - One Thing

Oh the pleasure, the happiness,
the delight, the joy, the bliss,
of doing just one thing above all!

When I was a child, I did many things;
that’s right for children – there’s the world,
go play in it; ask, what’s a horizon? but what
lies beyond? and why can’t I see angels
if angels can see me? …

When I was a young man, I did many things;
that’s right for young men – which one will I love?
which one will love me? And when we’ve together found our love,
oh what then? and oh what then?

But now I’m older, there seems less time
for many things; they will look after themselves
without my help… so, what delight
to give oneself to just one thing
one thing at a time; and then
one thing

and it seems, it doesn’t matter what;
roses need an expert to collaborate
in dreaming up new beauty from an older stock;
dogs need exercise, and a two-legs to look up to;
grandchildren are born to love grandparents
in a special way..

and, duties done, and hearts served well,
one thingit might be poetry,
in which to say, look, all this
I’ve received: here’s recognition,
acknowledgement, and gratitude…

and the other things, like sleeping, eating,
become day by day like living in someone else’s poem;
someone else committed to one thing

and then one day, perhaps,
life’s curtain twitches; and some great being
looks in the window, the very moment you look out;
andone thing’, in the most natural way,
becomes…

Emily Dickinson

It always felt to me—a wrong

597

It always felt to me—a wrong
To that Old Moses—done—
To let him see—the Canaan—
Without the entering—

And tho' in soberer moments—
No Moses there can be
I'm satisfied—the Romance
In point of injury—

Surpasses sharper stated—
Of Stephen—or of Paul—
For these—were only put to death—
While God's adroiter will

On Moses—seemed to fasten
With tantalizing Play
As Boy—should deal with lesser Boy—
To prove ability.

The fault—was doubtless Israel's—
Myself—had banned the Tribes—
And ushered Grand Old Moses
In Pentateuchal Robes

Upon the Broad Possession
'Twas little—But titled Him—to see—
Old Man on Nebo! Late as this—
My justice bleeds—for Thee!

The Truth That Sets You Free!

the worth of truth lies not
in whether Buddha said it,
Jesus said it, or even one of
the great thinkers or poets
said it...
the worth of truth lies in
whether you've experienced it,
felt it, lived it, whether it
is exuded through the pores of
your very being...
this is the truth that sets
you free... the truth that changes,
breathes, and lives!

That Is The Truth....

to save yourself you have learned to lie.
your wife does not want you to live
perhaps she hates you
this i think i should know, because on
every lie you make,
she is there to correct it and claims
that it is not so, that this is it,
what lies you make, she is there always
ready to correct, perhaps, she does not love you that much
she loves herself more, and that is the truth.

I will always be that girl

I will always be the girl who laughs at yesterdays jokes.
Who prances around and never gloats.
The one girl you never see cry.
Cuz another girl stole her guy.
The one girl who is full of cheer.
That one girl who may seem alittle weird.
I will always be remembered as the girl who smiled.
Whos temper was untamed and hair flew wild.
Because that girl will never cry.
The one whos smile will never die.
I will always be that girl.
Who smiles in her perfect world.

The Truth Is Always For Free! !

To shine forth through the dark with your love,
To shine forth the rain with my love,
To shine forth through the wind with your muse,
And like all the rivers that flow into the seas;
So, teach me only righteous things and,
I will follow you.
Come and touch my heart with your love,
Come and change my heart with your care,
Come and lead me on with the peace of your mind;
For, the truth is always for free! !
And, i need you to guide me on along this narrow path.

The Themes

This river is more than just water 
This river is in every building, every stone every mortar
This river is an emotion not to be summed up in words
Only to be felt by those who have seen the life it holds 
This river is the stars that shine off its suffice at night 
The twinkling of an everlasting light 
A show of strength, a show of might
A show that only the river can be right
For millions of years London has changed 
But only one thing has ever been sustained 
It kept the city moving so its never the same 
That's why London owes its life to this ever pumping vein

Am I The Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way)

There is no good reason
I should have to be so alone
I'm smothered by this emptiness
Lord I wish I was made of stone
Like a fool I lent my soul to love
And it paid me back in change
God help me am I the only one
Who's ever felt this way?
A heart that's worn and weathered
Would know better than to fight
But I wore mine like a weapon
Played out love like a crime
And it wrung me out and strung me out
And it hung years on my face
God help me, am I the only
Who's ever felt this way?
Now my sense of humor needs a break
I see a shadow in the mirror
And she's laughin' through her tears
One more smile's all I can fake
There is a wound inside me
And it's bleeding like a flood
There are times when I see a light ahead
Hope is not enough
As another night surrounds me
And it pounds me like a wave
God help me, am I the only one
Who's ever felt this way?
