Love Was Like the Stars

I remember
when the wine
was sweet
and our laughter
something that
we took for granted.
I remember
when every dream
seemed within our reach,
nothing that we ventured
ended in defeat
and every flower
blossomed
that we planted.
I remember
cold mornings
that made each day show clear
and black crystal nights
with a thousand
fiery stars
so close
it seemed
they'd landed
in our hearts
and in our souls
burning hot
within our passions
and love was like the wine
and love was like the stars
and love was like the laughter
that we took for granted.

Real Life Living

Real life is walking back and dreaming
Real life is entering the picture and achieving
Real life is a fight

To fight with words for swords
And yes swords for words
Here are worlds of sores

This soaring world
Soaring low and high
Swirling to and fro
Mixing sky with dreams
Mixing eyes
Mixing creams with dyes and dies
Paints dripping and dried
Gripping pages grind

Gripping life as a vice death
And death is hate
And hates rest
We wrestle this world upon conception
'till death

And death and life are
Chasing tails
Life is real
While death is chasing tales
And death is really
A bugging issue
Real life realing death
Into sure casting fire
And dreams into life really
Killing death and real life living

As They Lived

There is no laughter in the streets
Not the ones this world beholds
And the game still finds lone souls to beat
Though the rules are never told

…as it always is the master

There is no happiness in the sky
Not the one watching the ants below
And the game finds new loved souls to die
Though no worldly remorse ever shows

…as if their lives could end faster

But the story never ends this way
The monochrome and shades of grey
Like a rising sun through the black day
Give way, always, when you turn the page

…as games always make laughter

There is happiness in the sky today
The only one I know and love
And the game will never take away
All the ever circling doves

…as they give way to gilded chapters

There is laughter in the streets again
Warm smiles upon the hearths and homes
So go on and beat the game young men
And fulfill the fate the story told

…as they lived happily ever after

Real Life

I wish that life was like it is in the movies
┬┤cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark lonely road
At the end he┬┤s got a smile on his face

But when they threw me out to lions
Noone saved me as I fell from your grace
And noone wrote me new lines
For what I said wrong
What I did wrong I could not erase

This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
That I can┬┤t hide

I wish that I could be a white knight in armour
With an army just to bring you back home
But I┬┤ll admit I┬┤m scared of dialing your number
Someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can┬┤t it be like it is in TV
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
I can┬┤t hide

This is real life
This is real love
These are real wounds I┬┤m bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love
Was a story book tale
God knows that I┬┤d never dream
In the end it could fail

┬┤cause this is real life
This is real love
This is real pain
That much I┬┤m sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside
That I can┬┤t hide

This is real life
This is real love
These are real wounds I┬┤m bleeding from
And I realize this is real

Yes Like Real Life

yes the poem i write sounds like
a real life, more like it, sounds
very well like it. In fact, it is real.

the man is dying and all that the
woman does is watch him, and
the baby cries like a piglet asking
for milk, and the mother sits there.

we too watch with pity, just this pity.
there is nothing to be done, nothing.

When I was boy and life was young (ghazal)

There was a strange kind of living time
a kind of experiencing joy time

when I was boy and the world was still young,
when you for me you had lost your meeting time

all of joy, our sweet love was away flung,
as to our love it was the end of time

but never in shame was my head low hung,
and for friendship I could always find time

but of your friends I did not count among,
with years we did not notice passing time

while you did not know where you do belong
we were ready for the effect of time

but still life was like a great kind of song
and now for us, for life there is no time.

Here In The Real World

Here in the real world
Cowboys dont cry, and heroes dont die
Good always wins, again and again
Love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, Id never be blue
Chorus
But here in the real world
Its not that easy at all
cause when hearts get broken
Its real tears that fall
And darlin its sad but true
But the one thing Ive learned from you
Is how the boy dont always get the girl
Here in the real world
I gave you my love, but that wasnt enough
To hold your heart when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen
Itll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would
Repeat
Repeat chorus
No, the boy dont always get the girl
Here in the real world

Life Was Dozing, The Lady-bird Flew Over The Verge Of The Death

The world was dozing,
It was tired and worn.
“Man is supported by man,
A fence – by blackthorn! ”
That precept was well-known,
But entirely forgotten…alas!
The death, too, slumbered,
The day was colorless…

The guys remaining chums
By chance,
Had washed away all their talent
And all their heavenly donation,
Women and girls scattered in the streets
Were seized by the shameful passion.

Men wanted to whitewash themselves in solitude,
They craved for solitude, for isolation.
The current – slow, calm, but yet naughty,
Suppressed them… they were tied to the life,
They were tied by the bonds of obligation.

The world was taken ill with despair,
Roar was heard, all was alarmed,
Life was dozing… slumbered the world,
Over the verge of the death
Flew the ladybird.

Hope twinkled on that path,
Cosmic mists brought relief…
And the fables of the Doomsday
Were woven there –
Fate, Future, and Belief.

The Silence Was Like This

it was the kind of silence
that even the
steps of the ants
can be heard
the flutter of the wings
of the butterfly
the falling of the leaf
from the tree
touching the blades of
the grass
it was like the last
ever closing of
the eyelids
indeed it was so
peaceful
but he was no longer around
to tell it to you

I like the way you do...by talile ali

I like the way you do


strong as the wind
cold as ice
something special
something real nice
babe your cool
i like the way you do

on the dance floor
as you move
this sensation
is my groove
come and love me babe
i like the way you do

oh i like the way you do
oh i like the way you pitch woo
babe, i like the way you do

come on and love me
come do me right
keep it simple
till it feels tight
come on and love me
i like the way you do

1983

The real struggle started in 1983,
And i know what i have been through so far;
Because life is not very smooth always.
Fear and anger,
Love and war!
And of the death-toll in the human race to ponder over,
But life is all about peace than war.
Humanised by the military forces,
And of my years in the bush;
But now i am back home to my roots,
And this struggle started in 1983.
Life was like the creative powers of the problems at hand,
But your love has no hiding place when it is time for war!
And like the mysterious murders around me.
I am trying to get to you,
But the wind of change had taken me so long! !
And there is no retrospect on this muse,
But i live to write out my mind.

The Love I Am Still Mourning

I know not why life happens as it does,
Nor do I know if it shall ever be as it was-
But I do know mentation upon me has changed
Yet again, and perhaps the bias too, has been rearranged
To be again, the covenant we once shared:
That we were each for the other, what we only dared
Believe possible in fanciful thoughts, or the scapes of dreams.
I want to believe that this is as real as it seems,
But my joy is stunted when consideration is made
Of the thoughts as were before, and the plans that were laid
For a future sure to be rife with love and laughter...
The proverbial '...and then they lived happily ever after'.
Then, this 'house of cards' collapsed, without warning
Leaving me forlorn-yearning for the love I am still mourning!

-Maurice Harris,23 May 2012

Life Is Like...

Life is like an endless circle
that goes round and round forever.
Life is just like an endless circle
filled with tears and wounds.

Life is like an endless scar
that just hurts more and more
Life is like an endless scar
that only make me cry.

Life is like an endless pain
that never seems to end
Life is like and endless pain
that just goes round and round forever.

Life is like an endless story
that i just want to end
Life is just like an endless story
there tragic is the line

Life is like an endless song
that goes on and on forever
Life is just like an endless song
with a melody that can tear up hearts.

Life is like a pure shit hole
that don't have anything me to offer
Life is just like a pure shit hole
that never get an end

Life is just pain and tears
i don't know what to do
i don't know how to do
i just know i want out
i just know i want to put
put my final dot.

If I was in the Moon - Pinewood Royal

From an idea by Sophie Mitchell-Dwelly

Before the coming of the night
I see the moon rise all dressed in white
In the crepuscular light
I see the stars come out so bright
As I watch the stars appear
Like diamonds on a velvet blanket
And when the sky is clear
I'm so glad that I am here with you
Oh The Moon she looks so pale
Do you think she's happy in her misty veil?
Oh her light is everywhere
On a beach of pebbles we're standing there
If I was in the moon
I wouldn't want to leave too soon
If I was in the moon
I might just stay for ever
Oh Dancing in the moonlight
Our feet feel so light
Dancing in the moonlight
Oh the stars are so bright
Owls calling through the trees
And the frogs are chirping in the evening breeze
The crickets play their tune
By the light of the magical moon
If I was in the moon
I wouldn't want to leave too soon
If I was in the moon
I might just stay for ever

Sand In My Shoes (Above And Beyond Mix)

two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed
but i'm home now, and things still look the same
i think i'll leave it till tomorrow to unpack, try to forget for one more night
that i'm back in my flat
on the road where the cars never stop going through the night
to a life where i can't watch the sun set, i don't have time, i don't have time
i've still got sand in my shoes and i can't shake the thought of you
i should get on, forget you but why would i want to
i know we said goodbye, anything else would have been confused
but i want to see you again
tomorrow's back to work and down to sanity
should run a bath and then clear up the mess i made before i left here
try to remind myself that i was happy before i knew that i could get
on a plane and fly away
from the road where the cars never stop going through the night
to a life where i can watch the sun set and take my time, take all our time
two weeks away, all it takes, to change and turn me around i've fallen
i walked away, and never said, that i wanted to see you again
i've still got sand in my shoes and i can't shake the thought of you
i should get on, forget you but why would i want to
i know we said goodbye, anything else would have been confused
but i want to see you again

My Life Was Loving You

Where are my nights?
My days?
My mind?

When will I find,
You taking the time..
To be here with me?

Suddenly,
I am out of reach.
And you say...
Time you spend with me is not your need.

Maybe you'll believe it,
When my shoulder gets colder.
Maybe you'll believe it,
When I pack up and leave.
Maybe you'll believe it,
When you're gray and older...
My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

Suddenly,
I am out of reach.
And you say...
Time you spend with me is not your need.

Where are my nights?
My days?
My mind?

When will I find,
You taking the time..
To be here with me?

Maybe you'll believe it,
When my shoulder gets colder.
Maybe you'll believe it,
When I pack up and leave.
Maybe you'll believe it,
When you're gray and older...
My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

Maybe you'll believe it,
When my shoulder gets colder.

My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

Maybe you'll believe it,
When you're gray and older.

My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

Oh, oh, oh and...
My life was loving you,
With love for you to keep.

But there's no more...
Love for you to keep.
No more...
Love for you to keep.
No more love...
Here for you to keep!

I Like The Way

(released as b-side of one more night single, 1985)
I look out the window every day, I see the world go by
Watching I sit and wait for you
Just hoping youll catch my eye
You see me stare but I dont care
I like the way you smile
One day Ill get to talk to you
Ooh, right now well Im too shy
But in my world of make believe
Youre the one what I need, oh, oh...
I could imagine me with you
But its an impossibility
Id love to try to realise, I gotta deal with reality
But if you turn my way, Id look away, ooh even face-to-face
And deep inside me, inside my mind
Someone else is trying to take my place
But in my world of make believe
Youre the one what I need, oh, oh...
Oh, come with me, Ill show you everything
Come with me, ooh
Come with me, Ill show you everything
It could be, come along with me and let me take you there, oh, oh...
I look out the window every day, I see the world go by
Watching I sit and wait for you
Ooh, just hoping that youll walk by
But if you turn my way, Id look away, ooh even face-to-face
And deep inside, ooh in my mind
Someone else is trying to take my place
In my world of make believe
Youre the one what I need, oh, oh...
Come with me, ooh
Come with me, Ill show you everything
It could be, come along with me and let me take you there, oh, oh...
All of my life, come with me, come with me, come with me...
All of my life...
I like the way you smile
All of my life...

Like the Japanese

Make for me inside an insouciance with your wonder,
And I will build for you with my muscles,
And these things I say which are steam engines,
And organic turbines; Do not let your eyes become instead
The blunders of the richly accessorized middle-classes,
Do not say those things which are readily understood and
Manageable, but instead ride with me to Mars,
This sort of amusement park made out of fire-axes and
Other pigments given to indigenous holidays. That is what I
Said: Make this life into an aqueduct, a prevalence of my
Scars hung with tinsel, your lips blowing the sawdust of such
Carpentry, your nails newly painted black and draped against
My cheek like the human brand of peacock; Or come with
Me to my grandmother’s grave and let us worship there like
The Japanese, let us spread origami like our bodies, into new
Shapes for Christmas, and let us not mind the way the snowflakes
Drift indefinably unique like little Chalets floating through a
Francophone space, or let us ride away from this back through
The vanished sea the mountains attend, as carefully as explorers
Approaching the epileptic fissures through the persimmon trees.
They grow wild here where there are just words blown like
Ashes out amidst the bicycles of each of their careworn students,
And the ladies who exercise readily dreaming of their inevitable
Motherhood and what fine kitchens, like bosomy Popes
In a suburban Rome, they should first graduate and then soon attend.

Anne Brontë

The Parting (2)

1

The lady of Alzerno's hall
Is waiting for her lord;
The blackbird's song, the cuckoo's call
No joy to her afford.
She smiles not at the summer's sun,
Nor at the winter's blast;
She mourns that she is still alone
Though three long years have passed.

2

I knew her when her eye was bright,
I knew her when her step was light
And blithesome as a mountain doe's,
And when her cheek was like the rose,
And when her voice was full and free,
And when her smile was sweet to see.

3

But now the lustre of her eye,
So dimmed with many a tear;
Her footstep's elasticity,
Is tamed with grief and fear;
The rose has left her hollow cheeks;
In low and mournful tone she speaks,
And when she smiles 'tis but a gleam
Of sunshine on a winter's day,
That faintly beams through dreary clouds,
And in a moment dies away.
It does not warm, it does not cheer,
It makes us sigh for summer days
When fields are green, and skies are clear,
And when the sun has kinder rays.

4

For three years she has waited there,
Still hoping for her lord's return,
But vainly she may hope and fear
And vainly watch and weep and mourn;
She may wait him till her hairs are grey,
And she may wear her life away,
But to his lady and his home
Her noble lord will never come.

5

'I wish I knew the worst,' she said,
'I wish I could despair.
These fruitless hopes, this constant dread,
Are more than I can bear!' --
'Then do not hope and do not weep,
He loved thee faithfully,
And nothing short of death could keep
So true a heart from thee;
Eliza, he would never go,
And leave thee thus to mourn,
He must be dead, for death alone
Could hinder his return.'

6

'Twas thus I spoke because I felt
As if my heart would break,
To see her thus so slowly pining
For Alzerno's sake.
But more than that I would not tell,
Though all the while I knew so well
The time and nature of his death.
For when he drew his parting breath
His head was pillowed on my knee,
And his dark eyes were turned to me
With and agonised heart-breaking glance,
Until they saw me not --
O, the look of a dying man
Can never be forgot --!

Alexandrina Zenobia
1837

About God and Life and that Sorta Stuff

I need Your help, Lord, what should I do?
I don't know how to pray to You,
My words are jumbled up, confused,
My conscience prods me, I'm accused
Of doing things I shouldn't do
And thinking things I shouldn't think
And drowning everything in drink! !
I remember, when I went to school,
I thought the teacher was a fool;
How could a person who was crucified
Come back to life? I was sure he lied.
The Virgin Birth was just a joke,
Women can't get pregnant without a bloke,
Who was this teacher trying to kid?
I knew far more than that teacher did!
Why should I care about my soul?
I was much more interested in Rock & Roll!
My Christian friends seemed rather wet
(But they were tempted too I bet!)
While they were keeping their conscience clean
I'd found a far more interesting scene,
It was on the other side of town
(The side that's mentioned with a frown!)
I'd found a street were the lights were red
And people spent most of their time in bed.
A stranger filled me with desire
And set my soul and limbs on fire.
So what if they did it for a price
With a 'Thank you, dear, that was very nice'?
Oh, I was hooked, I knew it too,
But I always surrendered, well wouldn't you?
First there was sex and the came drugs
(My chaste old school-friends must be mugs!)
I couldn't wait to get my fix,
I lived for alcohol, drugs and chicks!
I didn't know there'd come a day
When the bright lights vanished and all was grey!
Depression came to rule instead
Of the pleasures of my girlfriend's bed,
My life was ruined, full of grief,
I had no comfort, no belief
To cling to in my hour of need,
Christianity seemed a hollow creed.
The You came knocking on my empty heart
And promised me a Brand New Start!
After all the suffering and pain
You said I could be Born Again!
A pretty end to this confession!
And I'm sorry if I gave the impression
That you'd be hearing songs and laughter
As I lived happily ever after!
There's nothing left that can console
Me now, except for Rock & Roll
And sustances I shouldn't touch
Because they cost me far too much!
'Goodbye my Friend, I wish you well
From my little cottage in the suburbs of Hell! ! '
