In The House Of Poetry

there is a house where
i am not wanted

but i keep telling myself
i belong here

the lady of the house
snobs me

the others keep their
abhorrence in silence

but i have the stars in my
hand
and so their nights are
dark

i have the moon in my mind
the sun in my heart

my heart is burning
my head is gentle and cool

the house is lonely
and so i must come and live there

i have the right
the lines of my palm
are the maps
of my claim to keep on
living

the house is telling me
about rules

i am silent
the Goddess says

the rule is the Heart
it is open

always open
always open.......

The Sleeproom

This is a story
And this is a song
Every little thing that they
Tell you is wrong
This isnt evil
This is a sound
And this conversation is possibly down.
I know that Im not all that pretty
I know that I dont sound like I should
I dont even belong to fashion.
This is a secret
And all this is true
Everything I tell you belongs here with you
Im not a hero
Im no good
I dont belong here but my heroes should
And Im moving
And Im lying down
And Im losing
And Im losing.
This is uncertain
This is unsound
Is this a feeling or something Ive found?
This is a story
This is a song
Every little thing that Ive told you is wrong.

Hollywood

Ive got a picture in my head
In my head
Its me and you we are in bed
We are in bed
Youve always been there when I called
When I called
Youve always been there most of all, all, all, all
(chorus)
This is not hollywood
Like I understood
Is not hollywood
Like, like, like
Get away, get away,
Is there anybody there?
Get away, get away,
Is there anybody there?
Get away, get away, get away, away....
Ive got a picture in my room
In my room
I will return there I presume
It will be soon
The greatest irony of all
Should do all
Its not so glamourous at all, all, all
(repeat chorus)

But, I've made films in Japan, in Yugoslavia, all over Europe, all over the United States, Mexico, but not Hollywood.

As much as we'd like to believe that our work is great and that we're infallible, we're not. Hollywood movies are made for the audience. These are not small European art films we're making.

The Light Has Not Begun Yet

THE LIGHT HAS NOT BEGUN YET

The light has not begun yet-
Darkness is still the morning-
But here now I know
Light will soon come-
So many times
God has given me a new morning-
Old as I am
I can still be awake again.

I Know Not How to Find the Spring

I know not how to find the Spring,
Though violets are here,
And in the boughs high over me
The birds are fluting clear;
The magic and the melody,
The rapture—all are fled,
And could they wake, they would but break
My heart, now you are dead.

Chao Boo Sang

into the land of less oil
imagining that wooden boat with white sails
into the land of mines before
i should not hear
the sounds of wailing children again
i must not see half arms
a quarter of some legs
cut ears and
exploding choppers

there i will shop and tour
see the past and smile the future
khum ung.

Do not tell a lie

Do not tell alie
If you want to
remain away
from chickenpox.

De not tell a lie
If you want to
remain here with me
in this truthful fort.

Forward yourself
with all forswear
you are not here
to remain here
and you are here
to remain here.

Forsooth forgetfulness
and forgiveness
makes us alive.
Foreclose that are
on our road of belief.

Do not cry for me

Do not cry for me
I alone, own my pain

Do not cry for me
for that, I have the rain

Do not cry for me
many mistakes I have made

Do not cry for me
and the love I now crave

Do not cry for me
alone is where I belong

Do not cry for me
solitude has made me strong

Do not cry for me
for my tears dampen bed sheets at night

Do not cry for me
for when I dream, that's where love's memory takes flight

Do Not Believe

Do not believe
Anything true
This east west
This birth death
This eating putting
This going coming
Do not believe
Anything anything.

Do not believe
There is sky
Do not believe
Birds fly
Animals cry
Do not believe
This defeat victory
This land this country
Here and there
You are not free.

Do not believe
Anything true
And you are not false
In this burning rows
There is no distinction
True false
And it is true
And it is false.

Biggest Thing

Off the wall the streets you go
The little girl dont find her name
? ? ? down roads to homes
Where everybody find their game
Just behind the street she goes
Shell be found behind her wheel
cause its the only place she knows
That makes her know just how she feels
cause youre biggest thing
That I see
You got me where you want me
You hunt me down you hold me
And beg me to believe
All too fast to where she goes
But wholl be first to find her name
Holding on in hollywood
But holding on dont make the grade
Just about ? ? ? its alright
? ? ? find
This holidays not hollywood
And holidays dont suit my game
Repeat chorus
Holidays and harlem(? ) nights
Where everybody find their way
? ? ? things they write
And makes you wanna find your place
Repeat chorus twice

The Poem I Did Not Write Today

THE POEM I DID NOT WRITE TODAY

The poem I did not write today
Will never be written.
No one knows what it is
Or where it is
'How it can be? ' is another question
No one can answer.

The poem I did not write today
Never went away
It is always here with me and with you
It is the same simple poem
Written over and over again
In our everyday minds.

It is the poem of love of life
The poem of happiness
The poem of belief in God
And in the goodness in the world to come
It is the poem which believes too that poetry will help save the world.

It is the good poem
The happy poem
The poem I did not write today
Is the poem my life is writing now and always
And with you it says
‘What a miracle it is that we are here
reading and writing
and loving life as we do’.

Not Your Type Of Town

It will never be known as a cultural town
Where footballers and macho men vie for renown
In the pub one once spoke of Rembrandt someone asked who is he
If he does play football his name is strange to me.

If you cannot talk of work, farming, politics or sports and join your pub mates in a beer
This not your sort of town what business have you here
Though if you like line dancing and Country music that might be your saving grace
For these are the most cultural things that are known to the place.

If you talk of Beethoven or Handel they might ask who are they
For they must not be famous never heard of them anyway
Those we most admire play cricket or football
These are the people that we wish to recall.

If you are literary minded or a poet at heart
Or if you are one who is interested in art
Then this is a town you ought not to live in
For here you may not meet with similar kin.

Im Not Your Girl

(shelly peiken, eric silver)
Felt so right for awhile, almost really believed
I could stay here forever, my heart could be free
Oh I wish it were that easy but its never been for me
Im not your girl
Feels so warm and so safe here, now dont get me wrong
But its selfish to stay here, Id be leading you on
Maybe someone else can give you what you really really want
But Im not your girl
Chorus:
They say people change
I wish it were true
Its something Ive tried so hard to do
Now I cant explain why right seems so wrong
And I keep hearing the same old song
Im not your girl
Im not your girl
See Ive been here before, left a good thing behind
Cant see where Im going, maybe loves really blind
And Im so afraid to lose the one who was so hard to find
But i;m not your girl
Repeat chorus
One day Ill come back here, and Ill knock on your door
Shell be sweet when she answers, and Ill know for sure
That life is never easy in my complicated world
Im not your girl...

Im Not Running Anymore

Holly told me, you better give me a child
I said, holly, theres no way
We dont even like each other all that much
We couldnt make it one more day
She said, you better look out, buster
The next time you see me youre gonna pay
I said, holly, Im not running anymore
But Im on my way
Chorus:
Im on my way
Im on my way
Im on my way
But Im not running anymore
Well I got two circus clowns here who like to fight
They got one black eye and a bloody nose
They are the hoodlums of my third wife
Whatever I say they will oppose
I try to teach those clowns something
Like how to make it day to day
I say, hey, you kids, Im not running anymore
But Im on my way
Chorus:
Im on my way
Im on my way
Im on my way
And Im not running anymore
Well I look in the mirror - what the hell happened to me?
Whatever I had has gone away
Im not the young kid that I used to be
So I push the hair back out of my face
Thats o.k., I knew this would happen
But I was hopin not today
Hey baby, Im not running anymore
But Im on my way
Chorus:
Im on my way
Im on my way
Im on my way
And Im not running anymore
Im on my way
Im on my way
Im on my way
And Im not running anymore
For sure!

I'm Not Upset! Not Yet!

Tell me where you go,
When you've got to leave me.
To say you're seeking some harmony!

Tell me where you go,
When you've got to leave me.
To say you're seeking some harmony!


I'm not upset!
Not yet!
'Cause,
I know you need alone time on your own.

I'm not upset!
Not yet!
'Cause,
I know you'll come back here to me at home.

Tell me where you go,
When you've got to leave.
I'm not upset.
Not yet,
'Cause...
I know you're needing some time alone on your own.
But you know at least you can pick up a telephone.

I'm not upset!
Not yet,
But...
Tell me where you go,
When you've got to leave me.
To say you're seeking some harmony!

Tell me where you go,
When you've got to leave me.
To say you're seeking some harmony!

I'm not upset!
Not yet!
'Cause,
I know you need alone time on your own.

I'm not upset!
Not yet!
'Cause,
I know you'll come back here to me at home.

I'm not upset!
Not yet!
But...
Something's getting heated and I'm feeling every bit.
I'm not upset!
Not yet!
But...
Something's getting heated and I'm feeling every bit.
I'm not upset!
Not yet!
But...
Something's getting heated and I'm feeling every bit.

What Do I Know......what You Do Not.

i know the spring.
i have traced the source of this water
that i drink everyday
that which gives me
inspiration because all my veins
let through the blood

and the water seeps through
the softness of my skin
the labyrinths of my intestines

i know spring
the source is here
not in the heart where drought
lies, not in the convolutions of my brains
where confusion reigns at times
overpowering the stillness of
my secret pond,

on the darkness of my night
i know the source
it is not evil, it does not have horns
but there is fire that burns me
like a bush and i am
unconsumed
it is eternal
not this damnation that kills the lives
of those who remain to be alone
in their messy rooms
on their windows that do not allow
the light of the moon
the advices of the breeze
the comforting messages of the
newly hatched eggs on the nests
of the trees

it is not in the heart
it is right here where my hands grope
for meaning
where my fingers glide
where my solitude rests
the hammock
of my humanity
as i run to and fro
because i do not want to be detached
to leave
it is here where i stay
and write some more
it is where where i do not want to be understood
by anybody
this secret pond
blind fish mute moss
bubble free
an insect with undeveloped wings
walk on the mirror
water.

Forget Me Not

Forget me not
Baby baby
As I rock you gently
Right here in my arms
I promise to always
Be here for you
Keep you safe and warm
Sometimes in the middle of the night
I wake up cryin when I think of how long
It took to find you
And now that I have I wont be movin on
Nothing can ever separate us
We know where we belong
All Im asking you
All Im asking
Before this moments gone
Forget me not
Dont forget what we got
Every day is surely but a dream
I found the sweetest of all things
For all my life
Youll be my light
With every beat thats in your heart
Oh baby please remember to
Forget me not
Time is funny
Time can fly
Thats one thing for sure
Ill wake tomorrow
Blink my eyes
See you standin at that door
And Ill be lookin at you
See the wonder of what love can be
Someday I might have to let you go
And thats just so hard to believe
And if I do youll know just
How much you mean to me
And all Ill ask of you
All Ill ask you
Before I set you free
Forget me not
Dont forget what we got
Every day is surely but a dream
I found the sweetest of all things
For all my life
Youll be my light
With every beat thats in your heart
Oh baby please remember to
Forget me not
Forget me not
Forget me not
Forget me
Dont forget me baby
Forget me
Not
Before I set you free yeah
Forget me not
Forget me
Dont forget what we got
What we got
Every day is surely but a dream
I found the sweetest of all things
For ever more
Connection
Ill thee adore
With every beat thats in your heart
Thats in my heart
Oh baby please remember to
Forget me not
Dont forget what we got
With every beat thats in your heart
Oh baby please remember to
Forget me not
Not
Forget me not

Believe It Or Not

Believe it or not, everyone, have things that they hide
Believe it or not, everyone, keep most things inside
Believe it or not, everyone, believes in something above
Believe it or not, everyone, needs to feel loved
Feel loved, but we don't and we won't until we figure out
Could someone deliver us, and send some kind of sign
So close to giving up, 'cause faith is so hard to find
But you don't and you won't, until we figure out
Seen it or not, every time, the world turns upside down
Believe it or not, most of us, feel like we're losing ground
Believe it or not, everyone, hate admitting fear
Believe it or not, most of us, wanna know why we're here
Why we're here, but we don''t and we won't until we figure out
Could someone deliver us, and send some kind of sign
So close to giving up, 'cause faith is so hard to find
Someone deliver us, and send some kind of sign
So close to giving up, 'cause faith is so hard to find
But you're young and you won't, until we figure out
Most of us have nothing to complain about
Most of us have things we could live without
Everyone needs advice on how to get along
You know we won't until we figure out
[Instrumental]
Believe it or not everyone
Believe it or not, everyone, have things that they hide
Believe it or not, everyone, keep most things inside
Believe it or not, everyone, believe in something above
Believe it or not, everyone, needs to feel loved
Feel loved, well we don't and we won't until we figure out
Could someone deliver us, and send some kind of sign
So close to giving up, 'cause faith is so hard to find
Someone deliver us, and send some kind of sign
So close to giving up, 'cause faith is so hard to find
But you're young and you won't, until we figure out
You're young and you won't, until we figure out
