If you really do want to be an actor who can satisfy himself and his audience, you need to be vulnerable. You must reach the emotional and intellectual level of ability where you can go out stark naked, emotionally, in front of an audience.

I Really Dont Want To Know

(words & music by howard barnes - don robertson)
Oh how many arms have held you
And hated to let you go
How many, oh how many, I wonder
But I really dont want, I dont wanna know
Oh how many lips have kissed you
And set, set your soul aglow, yes they did
How many, oh how many, I wonder, yes I do
But I really dont want to know
So always make, make me wonder
And always make, make me guess
And even, you know even if I ask you
Oh darling oh dont you, dont confess
Just let it, let it remain your secret
Oh for darling, darling I love you so
No wonder, yeah no wonder, I wonder
Mmm, cause I really dont want, I dont wanna know

Who can weigh love?

Light. Lightness. Light-heartedness.
Who can measure their measureless weight?

On the kitchen scales, we balance
weight against weight; but how different
the substances - on the one scale,
iron weights with their iron discipline
maintain like monks and nuns their constancy;

on the other scale, perhaps fine flour,
poured as bakers recommend, from a height
to catch the air between the grains; a foretaste
of that greater levity that yeast will bring;

Lorenzo de’ Medici, praising publicly his tutor,
Marsilio Ficino, said of him, that one thing in him which he loved
was that in his speech, gravity was mixed with levity,
and levity, with gravity;

what then, of our substance? In the lightness
of our being, then how bright the light! And in
the dark and heavy days, what lightness of the light may lurk
in melancholia – a yeast of wisdom yet to act?

And then – there’s love…its golden weightiness
so full of light; and hammered out and spread,
the brighter then…oh, who can measure out
the lightness, brightness, of our joy? What golden scales
of justice, mercy, grace,
may weigh the shining of a shining face?

You lie stretched out next to me

You lie stretched out next to me
while sunlight splashes over us
with breasts rising up and down and a naked thigh.
Lavender bushes wave on the other side of the windowpane
while you turn around and the sheet slips further down
and your fingers reach for mine.

You lie stretched out next to me
while sunlight splashes over us
and I get a view of your whole body
over soft curves into your niche
and still you are asleep,
my stick stands like a mast
and you lie stretched out next to me

Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?

He sits in your room, his tomb, with a fist full of tacks
Preoccupied with his vengeance
Cursing the dead that cant answer him back
Im sure that he has no intentions
Of looking your way, unless its to say
That he needs you to test his inventions.
Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it wont ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to.
He looks so truthful, is this how he feels
Trying to peel the moon and expose it
With his businesslike anger and his bloodhounds that kneel
If he needs a third eye he just grows it
He just needs you to talk or to hand him his chalk
Or pick it up after he throws it.
Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it wont ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to.
Why does he look so righteous while your face is so changed
Are you frightened of the box you keep him in
While his genocide fools and his friends rearrange
Their religion of the little ten women
That backs up their views but your face is so bruised
Come on out the dark is beginning.
Can you please crawl out your window?
Use your arms and legs it wont ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to.

Boy You Knock Me Out

[tatyana]
Uh, uh, uh
Oh, oh yeah
Baby
[tatyana]
From the moment that i saw you babe
All i think about is loving you
Every time that you are near
I just can't help but stare
I'm dreaming of eternity with you
So maybe i can
1 - [tatyana]
Run away with you
Imagine all the things we'd do
Call my name
And make this fantasy for real
Run away with you
Imagine all the things we'd do
Call my name
And make this fantasy for real
2 - [tatyana]
Can't hold it, i can't fight it
Want you and i can't deny it
It's all about the things you do
Boy, you knock me out
Can't hold it, i can't fight it
Want you and i can't deny it
It's all about the things you do
Boy, you knock me out
[tatyana]
Can you feel the vibes i'm sending, baby?
All my energy and thoughts towards you
There's now way i could let go
Of all these dreams and hopes
Anxieties so deep, feelings so new
Just maybe i can
Repeat 1
Repeat 2
[tatyana]
Falling for you, this love's a tko
Falling for you, baby
Falling for you, this love's a tko
Falling for you, baby
[will smith](tatyana)
Uh, uh, uh
Here it is a groove slightly transformed
Again, but with a tatyana ali spin
I knew ever since she was ten
As fresh prince from back then
I had a synch she would win
Whatever clique she was in
Now she's all grown up not ashley
Mad sexy, true but classy
She in the fast lane under my wing
Kissing the sky
Tatyana ali, girl you knock me out
(cause boy you knock me out)
Repeat 2 till end

When You've Averaged Out Your Crucials

When you've averaged out your crucials
and you've walked in the light and you've walked
in the shadows of things your eyes still taste of
though you've set a star as the moral compass
of your cloudy destination, and it's following you
down a long stray thread of a road, the smart money
bets on doing some good in the world
you may not even be aware of, let alone
expect payback for as if you were doing business
not gambling on an intuitionally calculated risk
its probably better to leave a sweeter cachet to the place
for your having been here, chicory by the side of the road,
or wild orchids in the marsh, by the addition
of one flower more than to desecrate your life
with bitterness, resentment, the indifference of ambition
when its heart gargles with an inhumane antiseptic
to keep from being infected by the human in its bloodstream.

You don't have to arrange paradigms of shining
into some kind of mandalic starmap unless you want to.
Giving something up isn't the same as adding yourself to it.
Even if you foreknow you're doomed to lose, total eclipse,
if you're a real gambler, you lose with flare, like a solar corona.
You're intrigued by the unfolding of the road you took,
the river you're running, the rapids in the mindstream
you're about to shoot down the middle in an inflatable life raft
in the spring run off of the waterclock of a reverential northern river.
It might be important to seek
the eventual forgiveness of the night
for what we've done to it, treating it as a reward
for breathing our way through another day in the light.
But the stars aren't listening to the alibis
we're whispering in the dark to our selves.
They labour under the cowbells of their own myths of origin.

But you can always do a little good in the world.
The whole place is wounded. No shortage of opportunity.
You can drive the ambulance back to the hospital.
You can be the atom that decides the outcome
of a cosmic event, so slight are the actions of the random,
chaos in action, it just takes one to light up
infinite time and space moment by moment
and blow it out just as quickly to enhance the night,
the pulsar of a firefly in a lighthouse of dark matter.
You ever wonder how many messiahs
have come and gone from the world
without ever once having heard of themselves?
If you don't like to drink spit out of the public fountains
of other people's mouths, though they exhale rainbows in the mist
maybe it's time to taste your own to see if it's sweet or not.
When things are real, not solid, nothing's diminished,
nothing's enlarged, because size is no longer relevant
in a world of wavelengths that have given up living like particles.
And forms are more provisional than cast in bronze.
Waifs of the air, maple leaves cast on the mindstream
covering their own reflections with the fans and hand mirrors
they carry like accessories to their own deathmasks.

Hard to make a wax mould of a dream, an emotion, or an insight.
The mystery of life isn't an interpretation
waiting to be deciphered any way you like,
though you're free to do this with the impunity
of a crossroad puzzle. Its silence is a deeper eloquence
than that, and when it expresses itself it's as immediate
as starlight on water. Its spontaneity never hesitates
to shock us with the impersonal beauty
of a moonrise over the lake in a lunar flood of wonder.
Or some small act of love that's denounced by the doer
as a foolish way to live against the odds, as soon as it's done.

Everybody's on death row here. No one gets out alive
or unwounded. Sparrows and stars and houseflies
pass freely through the bars, and the wind at night
whistles through them like the vocal cords of a harp.
Would it hurt to pass a cigarette through them
to someone in front of a firing squad of stars
or write a loveletter for someone who can't read it?

I Really Dont Want To Know

How many arms have held you
And hated to let you go
How many, how many I wonder
But I really dont want to know
And how many lips have kissed you
And set your soul aglow
How many, how many I wonder
But I really dont want to know
So always make me wonder
And always make me guess
Even if I ask you
Darlin, dont confess
No you just let that remain your secret
cause darlin I do love you so
How many, how many I wonder
But I really dont want to know
How many, how many I wonder
But I really dont want to know

You Can't out smart the playa

Hey, YOU I see you everywhere
You go and eveything you do
Here you are married
to one, But sleeping with another
It's like you are a dog in heat
But you can't out smart me
Iknew you before you knew yourself
I know the hairs on your head
Your every thought before you
think them.
Hey, YOU that turning the lights off
So you can do your dirty deeds
in the dark. Remember I walked
the earth thousand of years ago
So I know you.
You can't out smart the playa
Cause I SEE YOU, When you
think no one else is looking
Hey, YOU the one that is
lying, cheating and stealing.
Thinking no one is looking
So you think you in the clear
I GOT A SECRET I SEE YOU.
I'M ALWAYS LOOKING
SO YOU CAN'T OUT SMART THE PLAYA

You got you got you got (whooo)
Come on baby and show me what you got
Come on baby (don't be shy, no don't be shy)
Let the music hypnotize you (whooo)
You got me feelin' good

Baby heaven must have broken the fall
Cause girl your love is out of control
And it's caught up

And it's caught up

Come on come on baby Whoo

Like a speed train in the way
You hit me baby
You knock me out...

You need to learn a lot from us, the tiny creatures, cockroaches

We were a colony
I had no head count and
Cannot tell you how many were there
We must be in thousands
We were too crowded was the fact
No one can walk, all of us practically crawling

Our living conditions compare no where
Near the ways you live
Not that we were in discomfort
That is the way we live

This colony got established over a period
We were sure of getting food
Any time any quantity
We were thriving on whatever left over by you people

Our colony grew steadily
Along the road to its full length
It was not known to you people
That there existed colony of ours
Under your own nose

One of your lads
Stumbled in our colony
When he was cleaning the unauthorized canteen
Run on the footpath
Whose kitchen rejects were our feed
He was frightened at the sight of our crowd
And yelled

A war like situation came up
And our colony was invaded
By an army of people
With broomsticks, long flat wooden panels, etc.
In addition, they fumigated our colony
Making us rush out in the open
Young ones managing to run with their guiding mothers
Elder ones even flying

We were not sure as to where
We would be shifting
We crawled here and there
Crossing the road
Minding not the heavy traffic
Some of us got crushed too
We were fleeing for life
We got spread so much
The entire passers by had a feel of our unique scent
Some of them even holding their breathe
And some using out their handkerchief as respiratory protection

There was no need for this invasion
We were in no competing with any of your things
We were making a living of your left over
We were not seen in your midst

It is alright, if you want us to vacate
But, it hurts if you take measures to eliminate us
We were created by the same nature
That created you
We assure you
Despite your dislike and distaste for us
We will survive as we are determined

You should appreciate the strength
And steadfastness with which we survive
Even the toughest of conditions
Will not eliminate this gene

You need to learn a lot from us
The tiny creatures, cockroaches

Naked Eye

Take a little dope
Take a little dope
And walk out in the air
And walk out in the air
The stars are all connected to the brain.
The stars are all connected to the brain.
Find me a woman and lay down on the ground,
Find me a woman and lay down on the ground,
Her pleasure comes falling down like rain,
Her pleasure comes falling down like rain,
Get myself a car, I feel power as I fly,
Get myself a car, I feel power as I fly,
Oh now Im really in control,
Oh now Im really in control,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
But it dont really happen that way at all,
But it dont really happen that way at all,
Dont happen that way at all.
Dont happen that way at all.
You sign your own name and I sign mine,
You sign your own name and I sign mine,
Theyre both the same but we still get separate rooms,
Theyre both the same but we still get separate rooms,
You can cover up your guts but when you cover up your nuts,
You can cover up your guts but when you cover up your nuts,
Youre admitting that there must be something wrong,
Youre admitting that there must be something wrong,
Press any button and milk and honey flows,
Press any button and milk and honey flows,
The world begins behind your neighbors wall,
The world begins behind your neighbors wall,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
But it dont really happen that way at all,
But it dont really happen that way at all,
Nah nah no, dont happen that way at all.
Nah nah no, dont happen that way at all.
You hold the gun and I hold the wound,
You hold the gun and I hold the wound,
And we stand looking in each others eyes,
And we stand looking in each others eyes,
Both think we know whats right,
Both think we know whats right,
Both know we know whats wrong,
Both know we know whats wrong,
We tell ourselves so many many many lies,
We tell ourselves so many many many lies,
Were not pawns in any game, were not tools of bigger men,
Were not pawns in any game, were not tools of bigger men,
Theres only one who can really move us all,
Theres only one who can really move us all,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
It all looks fine to the naked eye,
But it dont really happen that way at all.
But it dont really happen that way at all.

No Water can Put Out This Fire!

What i know is not what you are teaching me!
For, you think that, i am very ignorant about this life;
But, this is like, you do not care about me! !
Because, your education does not educate me;
And, no water can put out this fire!

Who Can You Trust Anymore?

Can you really trust people?
because they can let you down
they can say one thing but
can do the complete opposite.
I'll never leave she may say
but she goes anyway
then you don't trust again
you become cynical and bitter.
Then you open up again
but then it happens once more
you lose all faith in people
who can you really trust?
Then you realise something
there is someone you can rely on
and that person is yourself.

You Must Dropp The Seed

i am the field, plowed fertile field
near the river
some dogs are buried within me
some snakes live here
i know their wishes and desire

somehow i wait for you as the rain
and you as the sower
of the seeds
pour some sweat of your brow
and let your arms swing
let the seeds
fall

that is all i want
that is all that i am waiting for
just dropp the seed
and i will let them grow

then you can leave

i will take care of the snakes
and i will always remember all the dogs sleeping here

now you must leave
the seeds shall grow spontaneously as i watch the seasons change

All The Way With You

Love gives
Love takes
It takes a lot of lucky breaks
Lucky strikes
Lucky stars
I dont know how I got this far
Who knows where its coming from
Or where its going to
Can I go all the way with you?
You have your way
You have your doubts
The falling in
The falling out
A bridge is built
A bridge is burned
Till you reach the point of no return
Dont know where were coming from
Or where were going to
Can I go all the way with you?
Heaven knows that this aint nothing new
God knows how much I love you
Love comes
Love goes
Can I go all the way with you?
Can I go all the way with you?

My illusions

Thousands of thoughts rise in mind at a time
It compels me to think seriously sometimes
It may not relevance as of now or today
But I can’t keep aloof from it and go away

I look at vast sea line and think of its deepness
How blue water in it reflect my simple face?
Big and small fishes run here and there
They face no hurdles or problems anywhere

Who can reason out the waves reaching at the shore?
Why do they separately dash against it and try more?
They seems to be in hurry to unite and show the strength
The waves may rise high and low with varying length

I think of vast blue and hollow sky
How it hangs without support and also why?
What keeps it in to spread with vast horizon?
No conclusion can be arrived or simply be drawn

Now we have different varieties of flowers
They are cross bedded and altered
Not original fragrance might have lost
But nothing more is left to trust

I rarely believe in speculation
Yes some propaganda is put deliberately in circulation
I may not really know about it and only wonder
I can stand under the sky and wait for clouds to thunder

What I want to know is not the mystery
It is also not needed to know complete history
As an intellectual you may have fascination for more knowledge
You want something to be written on blank page

You Can Do Magic

I never believed in things that I couldnt see
I said if I cant feel it then how can it be
No, no magic could happen to me
And then I saw you
I couldnt believe it, you took my heart
I couldnt retrieve it, said to myself
Whats it all about
Now I know there can be no doubt
You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
Youre the one who can put out the fire
You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...
And when the rain is beatin upon the window pane
And when the night it gets so cold, when I cant sleep
Again you come to me
I hold you tight, the rain disappears
Who would believe it
With a word you dry my tears
You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
Youre the one who can put out the fire
You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...
And if I wanted to
I could never be free
I never believed it was true
But now its so clear to me
You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire
Magic, and you know
Youre the one who can put out the fire
You know darn well
When you cast your spell you will get your way
When you hypnotize with your eyes
A heart of stone can turn to clay
Doo, doo, doo ...
Youre the one who can put out the fire
Youre the one who can put out the fire
Youre the one who can put out the fire ...

You'll Reach The Peak Of That Literary Hill

Who is to say which poetry is best?
How can it possibly be defined?
Which type is superior when put to the test?
All variations are surely entwined.

Strong words written stand the test of time,
Whether in poetry or in a good song,
Some will just flow whereas others will rhyme,
That doesn't mean either is wrong.

You may hate the words or the rhythm of a tune,
The content will still make you think,
Is the writer a genius or perhaps a buffoon?
With either there's always a link.

Some tell a story just like a book,
The written word can play games with your heart,
When you read one line common sense is forsook,
From that poem you don't want to depart.

It will get you talking that much is true,
You'll condemn it or proclaim it is great,
In some cases the reader may well want to sue,
You can guarantee it will open up a debate.

Who are any of us to judge each other?
Yet critics have the power to destroy,
Freedom of speech is what they smother,
Slagging off others they seem to enjoy.

Constructive critique can improve what is written,
Regardless of it being good or bad,
But senseless censure can leave one bitten,
It can even drive some people mad.

If you want to depart from the madness of life,
Then writing can be a great tool,
It can lift you up and rid you of strife,
Enjoying what you create is the rule.

Some of the time you can please them all,
There'll be those you never will,
As long as when writing you're having a ball,

‘' You'll Reach The Peak Of That Literary Hill ‘'
