We were the only pulsating creatures in a dead world of ice.

Durer's Hare

Vivid
as Durer's hare

as if my eyes had drawn
each & every hair

knew personally
each strand

its coat moving softly
in the breeze

moving with the rhythm
of its breathing

a real live hare
an inch and an eternity away

hanging out with us

humans
as if we weren't humans

just
other hares

almost expecting him
to say hello

being with us
us being with him

upon a bank
of sunlight

as if we were
passangers

at a bus stop waiting

for a bus that never
comes

twitching a nostril
scratching itself

my uncle & I stare
as long as forever is

not moving
a muscle

as if were the only humans
in an animal's world

two living statues un-
-til...

with a blurr of speed
my uncle karated chopped it

the hare
instantly an animal
in a human's world

Durer's hare
nothing now but

a bubbling
in a stew pot

but still my living
work of art

as the sun loses its way
and as day becomes night

Always remember this
I thought

'Humans will always be humans! '

Even uncles!

i cried myself
to sleep that night

siding with the rabbits.

The Only Light

the soft touch
of your hands
brushing mine...

almost like strangers,
it's been so long...
and the wrinkles of

gentleness 'neath your eyes,
eyes that have seen me
at my best and my worst.

some things were just
meant to be.... autumn
follows summer, then winter.

your soul lies in the empty
shell of my being....
the only light my darkness

will ever know!

THE ONLY THING(for Barbara & Ray)

Ah, little daughter
the only thing

I can tell you
was that you were made

with love
our love

and that before we
could get to know you

Death: unmade you
& you vanished from our sight.

Ah, little daughter
if only I could tell you

what you would
like to know:

'What was I like? '

And I cry: 'I don't know
...I don't know? '

The only thing
I can tell you

(little daughter...are you listening)

the only thing I can tell you

was that you were
made

with love

our love

Loving Is The Only Heaven

You pad across
the white tile floor

almost animal

your beauty
something only you
could tame

I have to raise my arm against it
as you come out of the sun

wearing only my white silk shirt

blown gracefully
against your curves

the shirt billowing behind you

as if
you were an angel
with folded wings

each step
a thing of wonder

lost in thought

as if you had taken – a wrong turning
& seemed surprised to be

here
stranded

kissing this human

who seems to know

that loving
is the only Heaven.

A Pantoum - You Are The Only One For Me

You are the only one for me,
I wrap my pillow in my arms,
When memories invade my spiritual infinity,
I start remembering those days.

I wrap my pillow in my arms,
Your face was there in moonlight,
I start remembering those days,
When your magnetic eyes were watching me.

Your face was there in moonlight,
Each every single day i lived,
When your magnertic eyes were watching me,
My heart felt safe and rich.

Each every single day i lived,
When memories invade my spiritual infinity,
My heart felt safe and rich,
You are the only one for me.

John Donne

Holy Sonnet XIII: What If This Present Were The World's Last Night?

What if this present were the world's last night?
Mark in my heart, O soul, where thou dost dwell,
The picture of Christ crucified, and tell
Whether that countenance can thee affright,
Tears in his eyes quench the amazing light,
Blood fills his frowns, which from his pierced head fell.
And can that tongue adjudge thee unto hell,
Which prayed forgiveness for his foes' fierce spite?
No, no; but as in my idolatry
I said to all my profane mistresses,
Beauty, of pity, foulness only is
A sign of rigour: so I say to thee,
To wicked spirits are horrid shapes assigned,
This beauteous form assures a piteous mind.

The Only Thing That Matters

When I thought I had it
all figured out,
You came along and looked at me
and along came the doubt.
No more easy feeling was with me anymore,
No more quiet sleeping like I did before
I questioned my sanity
and even my vanity.
But no, there was much more to it than that.
There was something so real
that you made me feel
and all that came before you,
I left behind.

No ifs or whys
are important to me now.
The only thing that matters
is you somehow.
No laughs or cries
can change what's here.
The only thing that matters
is having you near.

The biggest thing I left behind
were my days without you.
They're long forgotten.
For me there's only you.

The Only Ones

Can you feel me, I'm so close I'm sure
Anytime if you would call be right to your door
Is it over, lost this time for good
I never knew that I could be so misunderstood
* We are the only ones, left alone with this heart of stone
We are the only ones with nothin' left but fools alone
Life's so empty, there's nothin' left for me
Oh I wish you were back, baby you and me
Last September, it's like yesterday
You slipped through my hands, there's nothing more to say
* Repeat
I can feel the magic in your heart tonight
I thought we had something oh so right
Baby tell me do you still care
'Cause this ain't no game of kiss and dare
[INSTRUMENTAL]
* Repeat twice then go into the instrumental fade out

The Only Living Boy In Brum

Taking the train back homeward bound,
A poet with a suitcase in hand.
The people walk into me like I were a ghost,
They just can’t see beyond where they want to go,
Looks like I’m the only living boy in Brum.

Break a tenner into change-
Enough to carry me home.
I sit on the bus as it goes through the city,
See all the places I used to go,
They only hold memories for the only living boy in Brum.

Selfridges looms like a tower of golf balls.
Somebody climbed it once,
I saw the pictures on local TV,
But I watch a different channel now.
The only living boy in Brum.

There was a time,
That this place was the world to me,
But I have moved on
And it does not welcome back the only living boy in Brum.

I Am the Only Being Whose Doom

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
This changeful life has slipped away
As friendless after eighteen years
As lone as on my natal day

There have been times I cannot hide
There have been times when this was drear
When my sad soul forgot its pride
And longed for one to love me here

But those were in the early glow
Of feelings since subdued by care
And they have died so long ago
I hardly now believe they were

First melted off the hope of youth
Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew
And then experience told me truth
In mortal bosoms never grew

'Twas grief enough to think mankind
All hollow servile insincere -
But worse to trust to my own mind
And find the same corruption there

As Though It Were My Only Son....

there is no such thing as an official poem.
there maybe familiar ones,
most acceptable ones with the pulitzers and nobels and whatevers
but there is only this personal poem that you compose
for no one, or for no other and sometimes not even for yourself
it is a journal, a landmark of your stay,
a feeling that you cannot forget, you record it,
it is only you who knows it well and fully
recognizes it when after a time, when you have forgotten,
it comes to you as a reminder
about someone, about something, about an event
that when you pass away and come back
in whatever form
it becomes a scent of someone, or something and then
you remember exactly
what it was, and then you say, this is the poem that i have once
composed
and i love it, and i remember,
it is my poem,
i have composed it for that reason
and i am proud of it
as though
it were my only son.

The Only Flame In Town

I know a girl got my mind in a mess
I never heard her say goodnight and God bless
Shes not the only flame in town
And when were alone we never quarrel
Im miles away now heres the moral
Shes not the only flame in town
Shes not the only flame in town
Shes got to stop thinking that im
Carrying this torch around
He struck a match and it lit up her face
We should have struck a match girl
To burn down the whole place
Now youre not the only flame in town
But you blew hot and cold
Turned my heart to a cinder
And with each passing day
Youd be less tender and more tinder
Now youre not the only flame in town
Shes not the only flame in town
Shes got to stop thinking that im
Carrying this torch around
Thought I saw your face in the fire
But its so hard to remember
Even an inferno can cool down to an ember
Now youre not the only flame
Youre not the only flame
Youre not the only flame in town

Am I The Only Thing That Youve Done Wrong

(billy joe faster/lee ann womack/jason sellers)
Youre the life of the party
You stand out in a crowd
When I think of all the things youve done
It always makes me proud
But tonight Im feeling empty
It seems Im always here alone
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
Am I the only one that youve forgotten on the way
To gain the world and lose our love
Is to high a price to pay
In your long line of successes
Tell me where do I belong
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
You got another big promotion
Youre the best man on the crew
When you set your mind on something
Theres nothing you cant do
This house you built is perfect
Were the envy of the town
But lord its lonley here when youre not around


Am I the only one that youve forgotten on the way
To gain the world and lose our love
Is to high a price to pay
In your long line of successes
Tell me where do I belong
Am I the only thing youve done wrong
Oh am I the only thing youve done wrong

In The Only Pub In Penshurst

In the only pub in Penshurst saturday is the big night
Some of the locals there for a meal and drinks of their worries make light
And some even have their children there in a child friendly place
And everyone seems happy a smile on every face.

In the only pub in Penshurst I was made feel welcome there
It did not seem to bother them that I was from elsewhere
To me they were so welcoming as if I were a long lost friend
And I felt like a Local there before the night did end.

In the only pub in Penshurst they sell the best of beer
And talk of cricket and football one is obliged to hear
The Aussies playing cricket in England and football finals time drawing near
And Spring around the corner it is that time of year.

In the only pub in Penhurst though there I was not known
The locals made me feel welcome as if I were one of their own
I had gained at least twenty new friends by last drinks at closing time
And to these lovely people I dedicate this rhyme.

You Were The Last High

I am alone
But adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I said
When you were the last
Then I have known love
Like a whore
From at least ten thousand more
Then I swore
When you were the last
When you were the last high
High
High
High
You were awake
And I should have stayed
But I wandered
I was only out for a day
Out for a day
It was Chicago
For a moment
And then
It was
Paris and London
For a few
Days
Now I am alone
But adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I swore
When you were the last
When you were the last high
High
High
High
And you were the last high
High
High
High
I was the first
To have spoken
And I said
Just about
All the things
You shouldn't say
So maybe you loved me
But now
Maybe you don't
And
Maybe you'll call me
Maybe you won't
Oh
So I am alone
But adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I said
When you were the last
And I have known love
Like a whore
From at least ten thousand more
Then I swore
When you were the last
When you were the last high
High
High
High
And you were the last high
High
High
High

The Only Daddy Thatll

Everybody knows you been steppin on my toes
And Im gettin pretty tired of it
Keep steppin outta line and messin with my mind
If you had any sense, youd quit
But ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then youll find
You got the only daddy thatll walk the line
I keep workin everyday, all you wanna do is play
Im sick of stayin out all night
Youve been coming unglued from your funny little moods
So, honey-baby, that aint right
cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then youll find
You got the only daddy thatll walk the line
Everybody knows you been steppin on my toes
And still just puttin me on
When I start-a-walkin, dont I hear you start-a-squawkin
Beggin me to come back home
cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then youll find
You got the only daddy thatll walk the line

The Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line (live)

Everybody knows you been steppin' on my toes
And I'm gettin pretty tired of it
Keep steppin' outta line and messin' with my mind
If you had any sense, you'd quit
But ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
I keep workin' everyday, all you wanna do is play
I'm sick of stayin' out all night
You've been coming unglued from your funny little moods
So, honey-baby, that ain't right
'Cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
Everybody knows you been steppin' on my toes
And still just puttin' me on
When I start-a-walkin', don't I hear you start-a-squawkin'
Beggin' me to come back home
'Cause ever since you were just a little bitty girl
Since I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinking then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

alotta alotta alotta alotta luv
lotta lotta luv lotta luv lotta luv(3x)

(1st verse)
u say u seen to many things
that turned out to be too much to be true
against your better judgement opened up your heart
till you found the joke was on you
looking down on the rest of our lives
if were gonna be together or apart
about the onlt way that i know how to come

and now i've found
that ur the only one for me

(2nd verse)
you say you'll never fall again
you wont subject yourself to such pain
but if u give me half the chance i will
i'll never leave u standing out in the rain
but if u think that i could look u in the face
and lie right through my teeth
then turn around and walk away
but cross my heart girl i care for you
when i look into your eyes and say

(chorus)

(bridge)
i need u so i can't let go
im gonna be all that i can be
i want u still i'll always will
cause your the only one for me
