Now that you are mine

Now that you are mine
I taste the sweetness
of your kisses,
while the hot water
of the shower
rushes past our wet bodies.

Now that you are mine
your eyes speak with meaning
and while we are among
other people,
just you and I
can decipher what they really say.

Now that you are mine
no other girl can entice me
and you have become
the most beautiful
of women to me.

Now that you are away

Now that you are away
days are falling apart
and I feel
like the stripped chestnut tree
that stands skeleton against the sky

and the colours of flowers are trying
to match your eyes
while a drawling sun
at of the beginning of winter
hangs in the sky.

The rest and peace
are suddenly gone
while I walk purposeless
up and down in the garden.

Bougainvilleas pierce me
when I cut the stems
and at places I am scratched
and there are other places
where I bleed
and I wonder what it takes
to let a perfect flower grow,

or do you look past it
while the glare of the sun
almost blinds you
and do not know how lucky you are
when you have all ready got it
and all others fade away in her shade?

When Someone Tells You That You Are Wrong

he stands there
with a pointing finger
telling you that your
skirt is too short
and your legs are
too long,

whatever, he thinks
that you are a mistake of
this universe
and that God perhaps
lost attention
when nature tried to
give you shape

be confident
shy away from people like them
turn inward
find that light inside the
secret place of your heart
and listen:

did it not tell you that you are the precious
child of the universe
that you are no less than the moon and the stars
and the trees
and that by all means you have
the right to be here?

desiderata, right?
recall, and then look straight at that
magnified critique
don't say anything
dismiss him as nothing
but a mistake of
the magician's illusion
he does not exist
it is only you
and nothing else
who really matters

I Like To Think That You Are Much Better Than Myself, But...

you are years ahead
i like you to think that you are much better
in terms of compassion

knowledge had always been
younger than compassion

yet compassion is as meek
as it is not assertive

i like to think that you are much better
but you have not lived that much

you are never water to fire
never a tree to a bird

you have taken side with the ax
and the flint

there is so much blood around
the rocks are bathing

confusion flows to the sea
the rivers are willing victims

you put gasoline on chaos
and you dance around that big fire

i like to think that you are older and much better
than myself

but your hands have grown nails and splinters of glass
and like a hand grenade

you finally exploded and killed so many and
died

i like to think that i should have done better
you have nailed my feet on the floor and splinters wound my soles

Do You Feel That You Are Quite Powerless

Do you feel that you are quite powerless for I often do feel that way
Your opinions not seen as important few pay heed when you have your say
Perhaps for you that's not a bad thing look at the state of the World we live in
Where the greatest spreaders of paranoia the most admirers do seem to win
George W Bush can retire on his fat pension with Laura his devoted wife
The man who won many admirers but who has destroyed many a life
He has followed his staunchest allies John Howard and Tony Blair into retirement and many too their praises do sing
They have started wars where a million have died and thousands of horrific injuries have suffered can one say that this is a good thing?
So why worry if your words do not hold weight if what you say to nothing does amount
Feel happy you are not like Bush and his allies their war dead too many to count
They enjoy life on their huge pensions but for their time what have they to show
Save they have caused so many to suffer and the numbers of their war dead does grow
Like mine your words may not hold much weight but for as long as to the spirit of the fair go you are true
Then you are an honourable person and credit in heaps you are due.

Do I Care That You Are Hurting?

Do I care that you are hurting?
Did you ever care...
Period!

You have not been the one,
Exclusively in pain!
And I am not immune to empathy one bit!
Now that you are ready to express 'your' feelings,
Those of others are not diminished.
Nor did they announce they have left them to quit!

What you are experiencing now...
Has no ending to it to finish.
You once could afford to ignore
The sorrows of others.
Do you believe,
The grief you have recently received...
Brings cheers to those in contant struggle?
And you are on their minds,
As if you occupy their thoughts...
With nothing else but you,
To take up their time?
Or that you with your sympathies are sought.
You have been much too self possessed.
Too self-righteously taught!

Very few I know are suffering from guilt!
'That' happens to be your own curse...
From a life lived in rehearsals.
Built,
And fenced to separate!
This agony you 'dished',
Is now yours to contemplate!
As you kept in practice to perfect...
Deceit and needless hate!
Baited.

Your issues have never defined my point of view!
Do I care that you are hurting?
Did you ever care...
Period!
Without deserting those who did?
And you did your best...
To disrespect them to mock,
Every feeling of theirs in jest.
To depict them as being,
Low life and negative...
Animals who were pests!

Do I care that you are hurting?
Are you aware just how long who has?
From those misdeeds done by you in the past!

I have learned from you,
To return the same concern!
And I certainly don't sit,
Wondering how 'you' feel!
My thoughts are with those who have been dismissed.
Not with someone like you who believes...
Every step you take,
Has been followed and worshipped!

Do I care that you are hurting?
I honestly did not think you could!

The Point That You Are Driving At

of all inanimate
you say you want to be a fruit
a mango
luscious, sweet, and
ripe

i know, your point is that
you are ready,
ripe for everything, an end
for itself,

and of all animate,
you say you simply want to be this
mosquito
of the female variety, one that sings
one that tells you

that life sucks

That you are with me

I dream of the sun
and stars that fall
and the eclipse of the moon
and I dream of you,
who is the light
in my life.

I dream of seasons
that chases crazy past in a sting
and becomes muddled
and you stay with me
and are the one,
that gives sense to my life.

I dream that life’s
dark night,
envelops me
and that you are still with me
and at the place beyond the grave;
you cherish and embrace me still.

David Do Not Say That You Are Not A Poet

in terms of
the word written
telling something
that there is something inside you
that clicks
and beats and screams and calms down
like a slam
of a door from someone who decides
finally to leave
in terms of disbelief
about what happens on the day
when you are struck
with sadness
the poems begin to grow in your mind
and they become trees
and trees
are poems and so
be frank to admit now that
you are a poet

lousy or what.

You Know That You Are Very Deep In My Heart

You know that you are very deep in my heart,
how much I adore you
while in your absence I miss you for long moments

and love brings a kind of sorrow
but continually you sneak deeper into my heart.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,

my words, my deeds and feelings are no secret
but sometimes my words get few,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments

and you are in every thought
and our comfort with each other has been present from the beginning.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,

that our love goes much further than just sympathy
that nobody can fabricate such feelings,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments.

Everything that I am and want to be you do know
and sometimes you are in every word and sentence.
You know that you are very deep in my heart,
while in your absence I miss you for long moments.

What Is It That You Are Trying To Solicit?

If I had nothing else to believe,
When nourished as a child...
So happy am I,
I had not been encouraged to be deluded...
By a perception that my physicality...
Was the only reason I had been given the gift of life.
And my existence was to receive compliments.
With the expectations to thrive on them to survive.

So many live from day to day,
Concerned about their appearances.
With nothing else to offer or to give...
But a donating of a consistent ego.
To then seek confirmation,
From those who are equally obsessed...
With the addressing of their shallowness.
And offended by those who do not take notice.

'I don't understand it.
My weave flows.
My eyebrows are arched.
And my butt is tight and bubbled.
Why can I not attract attention? '

~How much more of it do you want?
What is it that you are trying to solicit?
A husband a pimp or a circus tent? ~

'Thank you for your encouragement.'

~No problem.
That's why I am here.~

All That You Are

Repeating in my head
Betrayal
Repeating in my head
Insecurities
Repeating in my head
Diffidence
It's not your fault
The well of thought and trust has run dry
Don't be afraid to let go
Don't be afraid to start over when it's over
Let go
Let go
Let go
Let go
Let go of feelings
Let go of compromise
Hollow trunk for shelter
So dark and cold inside
I always seem to find myself alone
Jaded shell of being
Porous as a stone
Calloused
Rigid
Empty
Because of you
Let go of trusting
Lost thought for family
Let go of living
No more concerns of demise
I never seem to find rhythm for life's harmony
Contorted
Twisted broken
Without a reason
Calloused
Rigid
Empty
Because of you
It's all me
All you are
Without me
There's nothing else
There's no one
Brainwash
All you are
Without me
You're by yourself
There's no one
Hope is out of season
Lost sight
No hint of light
Get busy living or get busy dying
Calloused
Rigid
Empty
Because of you
It's all me
All you are
Without me
There's nothing else
There's no one
Brainwash
All you are
Without me
You're by yourself
There's no one
Save me
This loss
Closure my
Answer
So grant it
You owe me all that you are
Without me
You're nothing
You're no one
Terrified
Petrified
Nothing
You're no one
Do you care because I don't
Nothing
You're no one
Nobody cares so just go
Nothing
You're no one
By yourself all alone
It's all me
All you are
Without me
There's nothing else
There's no one
Brainwash
All you are
Without me
You're by yourself
There's no one
Save me
This loss
Closure my
Answer
So grant it
You owe me all that you are
Without me
You're nothing

02-02-2011 Cruel phenomenons

02-02-2011

Cruel phenomenons
gibberish of the smart
fluency of glossolalia
religions grouped into
inconsistencies of art
language of the speakers
the heads of church and state
cubcortical structures
lays waste the human's spiritual
mental waste
meanings authorization
rhythmical tongues
Protestant denomination
burns away the
bibliographical mentality
full of authorization
I Corinthian
breaks down the factors
diminish the absent
of the consciousness
of the necessary hymens
recent man inducted
into the lies of charismatic leaders
who worship the
diminished absent
of exteroceptive stimuli
theologically conservative
extreme and hateful
roosting up believers
like sweating the floor
hatred in attendance
in our mega t v churches
begging for funds
God do not need your money
to save your soul
God asks only for devotion
and thing more
for with it He knows
that you are guided well
and will do no wrong
give to the poor
the down trodden
the fore loin
the hungry babies
the homeless sleeping in the cold
God my father
I a father born
love the man who loves me well
who take me into his arms
and lullaby me to sleep
shake, sweat, shiver
twitches, tear at
the Holy ghost
intonations
loud and clear
gays are not
welcome here
God of my father
lord Jesus the son
legends are rewritten
by the controlling ones
greater importance
a tie between you and God
aspect pf the past
did not permit prayers
save to the chef
holy prophet of
the many holy ones
voices I hear voices
stylized imprecation
of what is
not what is to come
I am no Saint
I am no demon
though some think me so
but I am but
inscriptions
of inspiration
never born before
the child of God
each of us be
a leader in the cause
my sex is my business
yours yours the same
hateful preachers
playing the hateful game
low, in my dreams
low, in the world
God my father
is at the head
of who we sex
who we are brave
enough to be
as creatures
fighting for the cause
that God is open to all
deceit, deceit
ever where I see
instrumental lust
sexual posturing
is but treachery
explanation I have none
save the invention
of what is to come
this narratization
writ as a poem
is but graffiti
writ on God's wall
this caneiprevious
this written love
for sisters and brothers
in the Christian cause
is only a mental voice
a reciprocity of love
a confidence of who
of the blesses
people we are.

You Are Love God, I Am Happiness and She Is Hate

You are love God
Because you put love into our lives
Every single day
I am happiness and I give all the happiness
To every one that is in my life
Every single day
And she is hate
But that alone is a bad road to walk on
By avoiding that bad road you will be able to stay safe
And feel that you are loved by God
Even though I have plenty of happiness to give
You can either choose to be a part of my life
Every single day

Since You Are Too Human....

there are always choices
we are born to these oceans of choices
wave upon wave
we travel to choose
then we land and take feet
upon the sands
into the gardens
on rocks
and rivers
to the heavens we take the shape of clouds
and rain
for we have learned
this art to evolve

now tell me who owns us?
tell yourself that, we cannot hear you
you are too human
and earthbound
you are stuck on the chains of your
self-defined treasures
that finally bury all your bones

soon we shall turn back at you
dusts, all dusts that we blow and scatter
to all the rivers

if you remember leaves,
you shall remember us...

thank God that you are still alive....

speak to yourself
offer a toast to loneliness
dance with your shadows
let the moon
cast the light
open your windows
let the air and wind be
your guests
write if you will
do not mind grammar and style
or what language to use

whirl, rotate,
collide with what life is giving
grab, toss, stamp,
shake and tremble on the floor

jump if you can
run around, rest, mimic the murmurs of
those wind chimes

be drunk to the happy moments that
life is still giving you

be human
(if you could, try being
god yourself)

laugh, gargle, swallow,
spit, lick, or be tongue-tied
have those slip of the tongues
tickle and heckle
chew some more, swallow again,
do whatever you want,

thank your God
because today
you are still alive.

You Have No Idea What You Are Up Against

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!

It hears and listens to all of the nonsense.
With those professions of devotion...
From an emptiness,
Faithfully dismissed.
As soon as the ritual...
Has satisfied a mind,
Limited in consciousness.

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!

In a belief whatever 'It' is...
Can be overwhelmed by flattery.
With wishes the 'act' delivers,
Something that can be 'shown'
How much you known 'It'!
And 'It' has chosen you...
To make 'Its' presence known!
Whether you 'own' or lease,
Your chariot from your sheltered crevice.

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!
And this 'It' sees.

In That Common Room Where You Are No Longer Alone

your eyes are open
as you are fully alive when you go
back to that old house
by the river
named after
sin,
you open the door
your hands are too willing
and you enter
a dusty room
where you shall be alone
for a while
you smell sin there
and you
get to know it better
beyond its name and
place of origin
you identify with it
and there is no fear now
you talk for a while
and then
it urges you to go naked
and close your eyes
to enter upon
a world where everyone is
welcome
you drink and dance and
become tipsy
lights begin to play
and shouts of joy are heard
in this totally
transformed world
you are not alone now
in this indulgence
you have become counted
without
any hesitation
your mind explodes into
four seasons
compressed in time
and the guarantee of
total satisfaction is handed to you
like a key to
your permanent room
since then

you are so alive
and death has become
too irrelevant

I Am Of The East And You Are Of The West

i am a man of the east
and i am muddy

you are the man of the west
and you are shiny

but that is not our main difference

i do not look for said difference
or any other kinds of differences
on an endless enumerations

i do not say you're guilty
i am not saying i am innocent
i do not say that you are the murderer
i am not saying that i am the victim
i do not say that you're a waste
i am not saying that i am this
stinking garbage waiting to be burned
i am not saying that you're the eagle
and i am this monkey
or this prey, a chick, to a hawk,
the predator of the sky
i am not saying that you're the alligator
and i am this gazelle drinking water on the river
that you claim you own and that you have the right
to eat me whole
that you are the shark of the food chain
and i am the dolphin
that you are the sun and i am just a
cloud drifting by your strong winds
far from it
i do not condemn
i keep my silence and you keep your gaze.

i am looking for our similarities
our sad eyes
