The problems with First Ladies is that you have to set the standard. My role is to be both star and slave.

Do You Know the Power That You Have?

Just a glance from the corner, the wink of an eye
an innocent brush as you try to squeeze by,
The smell of your hair and the sound of your sigh,

Do you know the power that you have?

A naive young man, in a nasty street fight
defending her honor, not wrong and not right
a possible death in the yellow street light.

Do you know the power that you have?

A child growing up is her fathers' true pride
always honest and loving, with nothing to hide.
Responsible still, for his feelings inside.

Do you know the power that you have?

From a lifetime of learning you now have to teach,
to the young and upcoming, success is their reach.
Dividing the portions of knowledge to each

Do you know the power that you have?

And now at the end, you lay there alone
no motion, no heart beat, no need for a home
drawing tears from the eyes of the loved ones that roam

Did you ever know the power that you had

All That You Have Is Your Soul

Oh my mama told me
cause she say she learned the hard way
Say she wanna spare the children
She say dont give or sell your soul away
cause all that you have is your soul
Dont be tempted by the shiny apple
Dont you eat of a bitter fruit
Hunger only for a taste of justice
Hunger only for a world of truth
cause all that you have is your soul
I was a pretty young girl once
I had dreams I had high hopes
I married a man he stole my heart away
He gave his love but what a high price I paid
And all that you have is your soul
Why was I such a young fool
Thought Id make history
Making babies was the best I could do
Thought Id made something that could be mine forever
Found out the hard way one cant possess another
And all that you have is your soul
I thought thought that I could find a way
To beat the system
To make a deal and have no debts to pay
Id take it all take it all Id run away
Me for myself first class and first rate
But all that you have is your soul
Here I am waiting for a better day
A second chance
A little luck to come my way
A hope to dream a hope that I can sleep again
And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands
cause all that you have is your soul
All that you have
All that you have
All that you have
Is your soul

Now That You Have Entered The Palace Of Peace

now that you have entered
the palace of peace
my son, the burden of taking
the cudgels of the cold lines
in your mind is hereby lifted.
you shall take one of the
seats reserved for you,
taste the wine of peace,
drink, you have passed the test.

That you have taken her from me

That you have taken her from me
while I loved her truly
as if she was from marriage free
as if she could belong to you duly.

It is not just an insincere thing
but to do so under the cloak of friendship
is something that pierces with its sting
like being sacrilegious during worship.

You did something ungodly
and smiling knifed me from behind,
never were your intentions to be kind
and gladly you acted mercilessly, even deadly:

Hers, by falling for you and by being to me untrue.
Yours, by giving me what wasn’t due.

[References: Sonnets 41 & 42 “Those pretty wrongs that liberty commits” andThat thou hast her it is not all my grief” by William Shakespeare.]

It is that you have fled from me

It is that you have fled from me that makes me seek
With barefoot stalking your ghost image in my chamber
Where once I have seen you gentle, tame, naked and meek
That now you are free and wild and do not remember
That since you have left me you put yourself in great danger
You the one that took bread at my hand, now you range
Busily seeking other love with continual change

True I shall thank my fortune for crossing with your life; otherwise
What joy or happiness could have been so special
In thin array after a pleasant guise
When your loose gown from your shoulders fell
Exposing the silhouette of lovely breast too intoxicating to tell
And then you caught me in your ivory arms long and small
There withal sweetly as ever sweet you did my lips kiss
And softly and lowly whispered “Dear heart how you like this? ”

Was I delirious? No it was not a dream I lay broad waking
But now all is turned through my gentleness
Into a strange fashion of forgivable forsaking
And reality is forcing me to let go of your goodness
And you roam else to use newfangledness
But since I, so kindly of you, have been generously served
Forsaken at pebbled shores your sailing ship observed
I fain would know if life has bestowed you what you deserved

That you have abandoned all will and strife

That you have abandoned all will and strife
Discard any other activity which implies getting on with life
You do not want to break away forfeiting any bail
And you are punishing yourself, putting yourself in jail
put yourself in some kind of curfew under powerful bolt
put life and the world around in complete halt
Until yourself will give you what yourself has taken away from you.....
All in the name of this precarious love so divine and dear in your view
It melt you down as dawn stars are melt in blue
And all other suitors you disdain discarding so many
It raises doubt if you ever find true love with any


Your heart is always heavy for him with fruits of love
Like clusters of ripe pomegranate fruit bearing down
The canopy branches of the tree
But you never intend to give him one from above
It is waxed and sweetened by the full sun as jewels crown
The fruits of our love are subject to your status; they are not free


On the other side of the wall
He the fox is waiting for your fruit to fall
He knows this tree will shed its fruits
It always did, it ever will whenever ripe its shoots
Punctually by the season queue.
December, followed by May all season thru


And then on evening time, at dusk twilight, this fox dares to hide low
As bats chase moths encircling wandering in lights glow
Under summer night night with crimson skies’ pall
The emotional muscles ware out and a fruit from the tree may fall
And when in the gray hour it drops as lust’s prey
The fox feeds fiercely on its flesh, no one will ever know or say


As for me in all of this...
My work is done closed in uneasy halt
This heath, this strange calm and quiet scene
The memory of what has been
And never more will be
But it will ever live with me

You have no set in my thought

.

The Sun is set;
It slips out of my thought.
The Moon is set;
It slips out of my thought.
When you exited
You stay put in my thought.
When I hear some
By your name, you’re my thought.
You have not set
In my memory and thoughts.
You are not set
To my fervour and thoughts.
When I see some
As lean, you come to my thought.
When some one is
Coy, you strike my thought.
You cannot set
Though there is twilight.
I cannot let
You slip out of my concept.
For you have met
All needs of my amorous thought.

The Love That You Have

The love that you had
In your heart is gone
Any touch of sincerity
Any trace of compassion
What hardened your heart?
What turned it to stone?
What made you forget?
You were in love with someone
Your hands dont reach out
Your voice doesnt call me
I know youve stopped listening
Your eyes look straight through me
If nights are like this
Id rather be alone
Who said you could forget
You were in love with someone?
Tell me what hardened your heart
Tell me what turned it to stone
Tell me what made you forget
You were in love with someone
Was I wrong to forgive
Your indiscretions?
Should I have been more hysterical
Less understanding?
If youre looking for a villain
Go on assume the role
But dont say that its my fault
That youre not in love with someone
Tell me what hardened your heart
Tell me what turned it to stone
Tell me what made you forget
You were in love with someone
Tell me theres someone in your life
Ill fight to keep your for my own
Tell me because I really want to know
Why you cant be in love with someone

You Are Translating True Love In The Language That You Like

it is amazing
here you are translating the meaning of true in your own language.
i am amazed.
you love poetry after all? you still love
true love

i hear the cracks of your broken heart
i pretend it is nothing to me

i see how you bleed
your white shirt bloody
and your hands
cupping some drops of blood
from your bosom

i pretend i have not seen such a pitiful sight
i have my own broken hearts too
but you will never know that

you have contempt on my lost loves
because you never understand that true love can also be

more than what you expect
it can be more than one
it can be many

the way i love are like ten fingers
the caress of ten fingers

they move like a tribe of love
on the thighs of my beloved
on her breasts

how can i be so cruel living with just
a finger to love just one?

now i make a poem about true love
the one that uses so much of myself
to love not just one
but all

yes, do not be surprised
to love all of humanity and humanity
has not just one set of breasts and thighs

oh, there are hundreds of them
and from their milk a thousand children shall live

You Have To Lay Down The Law

It is very sad
But the truth is that you
Have to lay down the law
When you are dealing with ignorant
People in your life
Otherwise they won't respect you

The Stars That You Have

who cannot love
the stars
in your hair?

they all glitter
the magnanimous sparks
of love
that you are offering

to the darkness of my
nights
my soul rises from my
body

who cannot love all
the stars
in your eyes?

i close mine

who cannot love the stars
gleaming in the corners
of your heart?

gentle as i
bleed.

You and The Rain That You Have Been Praying For

the rain that you
ask has arrived

do you love the
sonorous sound
on the grass?

do you think much
clearly now?
does the rain make
you feel luckier?

look at the rest of the
creatures they are looking
for a place
where they do not get
wet
where they can have
a little warmth
where they can
for another moment
live

do not ask for meaning
the rain cannot give it to you for now

For The Time Being That You Have No Need Of Me

feel confident
and be just like anybody on the street
do not think about
meeting me
sometime in the future
for i am nothing but a piece
of useless button
that you can throw
in space and feel
no emptiness in your pocket

somehow
there is a part in you that breaks
perhaps your heart
or your
stomach
you feel the hunger of love
the coldness that seeks the warmth
the word that feels the need of the tongue
so that it can be uttered

then you shall look for me
but i shall take the revenge

i will no longer be there anymore.

Things that drive me wild, that you just don't know

you are driving me crazy,
one moment you are like this,
next you are like that,
i can't keep up,
but at the same time,
it's interesting because,
i'll never know,
what you will do next,
in my eyes,
i am hooked,
i love the unknown,
you keep me quessing,
oooh, i love not knowing the answer,
i love the mystery,
i float on your words,
it don't get no better,
i'll give up the fight to disagree,
but you won't win the war,
i will always be me,
that i won't change,
but i like when you get,
a sense that you have won,
you light up and,
you get this cockiness,
who doesn't like a man,
with a little confidence?

The Good That You Do Unto Others....

ask, please ask, if you have the heart
every moment that you do good for another
if it pleases her too
in the same manner that we do not really want to hurt or inflict
what innate badness we keep
we must always ask
if the other is enjoying what we do and we keep on doing

ask, and you must know if the good that you do is good for the other
for in truth we do not know where that person is going
his needs and wants, his dreams and wishes,
his past traumas, his scruples
and unresolved conflicts

so please my friend, i have to tell you again
the good that you have done in me has hurt me and that is the truth

when you laugh, you have become the worst person that i have known and met
when you say it does not matter, you have become a worm
a parasite to my body and by all means
forgive me when i finally decide to
deform you.

Kill If You Have To, But Don't Steal

first thing, i'm not a poet
i was a musician
and damn good at it

second thing, i had some ethical issues
just too nervous and caffeinated
to be a good boy

meanwhile, i wander the streets
a lonely soul, i walk alone
and write my music while i'm walkin to the beat

just so you know,
that song was beautiful
more joyous than anything
that you have ever known

but this world is full of
traiterous pot smokin politicians
and they hate
what they cannot create

but that don't give them the right
to steal my song
and send me to heaven empty
i would rather have just gone to hell
a good boy
with my song
to listen to
while i work all the day long
screw your prejudice
and your malice and your greed
i understand that everyones hungry
and there's too many people
just too many people
but don't you take my art from me
that's all i ever had
and now i'm empty

A Request That You Simply Mind Your Own Business...

there is this tail end
of the wind that tells you
that the journey
was never smooth and easy

there are eddies of the mind
that must finally tell you that

oh well,
not every thing has been alright
that there are no clearer ponds except those that you have not really gone to

oh yes, far pastures are always greener than we think
or that, you never really understand what one had gone through
all those fast flying years

these goddamn quick years that leave us with nothing
but suppressed memories
which still carry the needles in their hands and prick us on those
empty nights

at the height of this upheaval
you still have no right to grasp
what details are there

go somewhere else
and read between the armpits of these lines

there is this Notice on the Wall which tells you
with accuracy (and even warn you about respect)

(i.e. to simply mind your own business, ok?)

Only Thing That I Have From You

Only thing that I have from you is this rose
This rose that you have gave me when we were in love together
And now I found it between the old pages of memory
And we are apart forever
I remember how a nice day was that day together
When you gave me the red rose and I wished that our love will last forever

Only thing that I have from you is this post card
This post card that means the worlds for me
Makes me feel all that had happend between us was just a nightmare
And I will wake up one day to be with you and never apart

Only thing that I have from you is this poem
This poem that you wrote for me, promising me to love forever
And now I am reading it and we are apart till ever

Only thing that I have from you is this sorrowful heart
This heart that still has your great love inside
Forgetting you was a nightmare for it
This heart that cried bloody tears for your love
Never and ever forgod you my sweet!

You have fallen in love with me

You want me to say I love you
But I won’t say that
As I simply love you

You want me to say I will die for you
But I won’t say that
As I have given up all for you
Including my soul

You want me to say I will care for you
But I can’t say that
As I do not take care of my very self
After your acquaintance

You want me to say let’s dream together
But I can’t say that
As I do not sleep at all in your memories

You want me to say I will do anything for you
But I won’t say that
As I am undone after your taking over me

You want me to say you are the most beautiful
But I can’t say that
As I do not see anything else, but you

You want me to say the world is nothing before you
But I won’t say that
As I am off this world in your presence

I won’t ask for anything from you
I won’t want you to say anything
I won’t demand you to promise anything
I won’t seek to know from you anything
As I have understood
With all that you wanted from me that
You have fallen in love with me

Someone That You Loved Before

(eric carmen/diane warren)
You used to touch me
Baby, now your touch has turned so cold
You used to want me
Now baby, you just want to let me go
And I can see Im losing you now
And I dont wanna
No, I dont wanna be just
Someone that you loved before
Baby, please dont let me be
Someone you dont love no more
Just tell me we could make it right
cause Id do anything
To hold you in my arms and then
Hear you say
Youre back in love with me again
Is it over?
Baby, are we over now for good?
I know youre goin
If I could make you stay you know I would
If I could just get through to you now
cause I dont wanna
No I dont wanna be just
Someone that you loved before
Baby, please dont let me be
Someone you dont love no more
Just tell me we could make it right
cause Id do anything
To hold you in my arms and then
Hear you say
Youre back in love with me again
Baby, cant we give it one more try?
cause I dont wanna be the one you leave behind
Baby, I dont wanna be just
Someone that you loved before
Baby, tell me I could be
Someone you could love once more
Just tell me we could make it right
cause Id do anything
To hold you in my arms and then
Hear you say
Youre back in love with me again
Someone that you loved before
Baby, tell me I could be
Someone you could love once more
Just tell me we could make it right
cause Id do anything
To hold you in my arms and then
Hear you say
Youre back in love with me again
Someone that you loved before
Baby, tell me I could be
Someone you could love once more
Just tell me we could make it right
cause Id do anything
To hold you in my arms and then
Hear you say
Youre back in love with me again
