The Movies and Us

back to the thrill
in the movies
we are caught in
the web of its
transparent truths
we stop for a while
like posts
when electric lights
begin to
blink, when we
finally see ourselves
in the characters
when we wake up
and find that we too
fall short
of the measure
for goodness

The Movies

Movies are tricks, as is tele,
to allow evil demons,
that are really quite smelly
into this world, by viewing them,
then they create covens, evil dens,
and treat good people like battery hens,
ever taking rarely giving,
and telling you its holy,
when really it is naught but evil,
just like music, words and tele,
and dogs and cats,
or dogs and acts,
are not my buddies either,
its all pretence to get me to,
become a christian believer,
but its all pet cults, suicide too,
and all they do is manipulate you,
into suicide, or other ways,
to end the brightness of your days,
to bring you hell and little more,
so I will smote them,
and they'll see,
that evil bastards like this wont manipulate me.
so keep your evil television,
that causes nothing but derision,
so brainwash yourselves, you stupid fools,
and stop trying to steal my family jewels.
Thieving devious bastards.

One night at the movies

When you just started working
I took you on a date,
with the candlelight in the Spur
your eyes burnt deep dark brown.

Your hand was soft
and maybe it was to easy,
to make you laugh
and life was just another game
and you were excited about your dreams.

On the ice rink we skated
up and down like teenagers
and you got me tired
and I almost
fell in love with you

Yet that times were innocent
and you were,
just too young for me
and I wanted nothing more
than a kiss.

I see you at the movies
and you are a mature woman
and there’s sincerity in your eyes
when you greet me
and something that can go much deeper,
when your lips touch mine for a moment.

I almost wish
that we can be alone for a few moments
when I see heartache behind the mask,
but the commitments of life
set its claims
and I buy popcorn and cool drink
while two boys wait for me
and you are buried in my memories
and just a photo in a album.

Like They See It Done In The Movies

I was in and out of the military,
By the age of 21.
Living co-independently with responsibilites...
As a married man with a wife expecting our son.

Today I have little patience,
With men and women both who whine.
About living lives they wished they had.
But accepting routines to live,
Everyday...
In their minds.

And I have no tolerance for those who make claims...
About what they do and how they do it.
While expressing a self centered sadness,
To hold others to blame for their restricted ambitions.
And listening to them...
You will hear them threaten to run away.
And make childish proclamations.

And there are still those...
Who will convince others they have been on their own.
All their lives!
But they have never spent time by themselves.
Nor could they walk on their paths alone.
They have never done it.
But quick to demand from others they do!
Like they see it done in the movies.
Without the added moans and groans.

Only In The Making Of Movies

Only in the making of movies,
Are actors found to be handed scripts.
To then learn lines some find to be tedious.
And time well spent is sacrificed to deliver,
What's right for the price...
For the cost being paid.

Camera angles are selected,
By a director who chooses the best scenes.
And the actors are blocked within them,
To emote with belief as an audince viewing this...
Sits,
With their emotions manipulated.

Only in the making of movies,
Are 'realities' depicted.
Although many in the audience become captivated,
With beliefs they also can deceive truth easily.
By saying and doing things they wish to sell.
With hopes their 'portrayals' have gone over well.

And only those who become offended,
They can not sell lies they told to tell...
Are those who become combative,
When confronted by others...
Who are specific and direct AND caring less,
How a charade is masqueraded to address.

Only in the making of movies,
Are actors found to be handed scripts.
To then learn lines some find to be tedious.
Until what is done has been finished.
But many unpaid to 'act' but embellish facts,
Find it difficult to strip away all their fantasies.

Only in the making of movies...
No one sits back to snack.
Only in the making of movies...
Every actor wants to get paid.
And,
Only in the making of movies...
No one sits back to snack.
No one has time for that,
Since a budget has to be paid back.
Oh.
Only in the making of movies...
No one sits back to snack.
Only in the making of movies...
Every actor wants to get paid.
And,
Only in the making of movies...
No one sits back to snack.
No one has time for that,
Since a budget has to be paid back.
Oh.
Only in the making of movies...
Facts are scratched!
And,
Only in the making of movies...
Facts are scratched!

And the days are not full enough

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
      Not shaking the grass

You are the knowledge and courage

You are the water
In this summer
You are the light
In this dark night
You are the north star
In this stormy sea
You are the fresh air
In this busy city
You are the pillar
of my house my world
You are the sun
You are the moon
You are the knowledge
And courage in this life-mirage.

And These--Are These Indeed The Rnd

And these-are these indeed the end,
This grinning skull, this heavy loam?
Do all green ways whereby we wend
Lead but to yon ignoble home?

Ah well! Thine eyes invite to bliss;
Thy lips are hives of summer still.
I ask not other worlds while this
Proffers me all the sweets I will.

Oh where are you the lost lamb in pain and in sour

Oh where are you the lost lamb in pain and in sour
You who have strayed from your pastor
where have you gone along
To a land without a tree and without a song
where do you wander
straying from me, from life you are sundered
You now in stranger land drink water
From broken wells

If The Moon Is A Boat And The Stars Are Fishes

if the moon tonight is a boat
floating in the sky
on a journey to fantasy
and the stars are
fishes

i shall summon the sirens
to sing Atlantic songs for you

and then there shall be a hundred sea horses
and whales to keep you company

i will just stay from a distance
and watch how this fantasy becomes another reality

for us, perhaps.

Time And Again/ It Is The Songs That Are The Poems

Time and again
It is Songs that are the Poem-
Songs which surprise
In suggestions and remembrances
Deepest feelings-
Time and again
It is the songs simple words
That lift the soul
To that kind of Joy only Beauty gives.

The songs the music-
With the words or without
They are so often the Poem
The Soul lives in
And would be less without.

With Hale Affection And Abiding Faith These Rhymes And Pictures Are Inscribed To The Children Everywhere

_He owns the bird-songs of the hills--
The laughter of the April rills;
And his are all the diamonds set
In Morning's dewy coronet,--
And his the Dusk's first minted stars
That twinkle through the pasture-bars
And litter all the skies at night
With glittering scraps of silver light;--
The rainbow's bar, from rim to rim,
In beaten gold, belongs to him._

Where Are The Moments Of Beauty And Deepest Feeling

WHERE ARE THE MOMENTS OF BEAUTY AND DEEPEST FEELING

Where are the moments of beauty and deepest feeling?
Of longing so intense it is its own meaning
Of tears in silent pain
Of all of all so much that cannot be said or written?
Where is that beauty I feel and long for
That life which is mine sometimes
But mostly is far far behind me
With those no longer here?

Who Can See And Feel / The Trees As They Are

WHO CAN SEE AND FEEL/ THE TREES AS THEY ARE

Who can see and feel
The trees as they are
The wind as it rains
The light as it trails
The clouds of dust
Goodbye?

Who can know the way
Of a stream
That feels deeper
Into the heart
Of all water sounds?

And beyond all being
Who can find the name of G-d
When no one knows
Who or why or where of how
All is Great and Good?

Ocean and The Mind Of Man Are Both Alike

Ocean and the mind of man are both alike:
Under the ocean's bottom lies
the destructive fire, vadvaagni;
And in the breast of man doth rage
the fire of wrath.
When the fire breaks out, its flames
of angry, abusive words,
sear and scorch and burn.
But if one ponders unruffled and calm,
and weighs the words, though angry they be,
They have no substance, no, nor weight.

The river and its waves are one

The river and its waves are one
surf: where is the difference between the river and its waves?

When the wave rises,
it is the water;
and when it falls,
it is the same water again.

Tell me, Sir, where is the distinction?
Because it has been named as wave,
shall it no longer be considered as water?

Within the Supreme Brahma,
the worlds are being told like beads:
Look upon that rosary with the eyes of wisdom.

If Only The Moon, The Sun And The Stars Are

if only the moon and the sun and the stars
are for sale,
if only the night can be packaged exclusively
for personal use
if only the day can be bottled and sealed
for a certain exclusivity
if only the stars can be put in a glass bowl
and let them stay there
like some goldfishes
if only all the other planets and comets and meteors
can be kept in the store
and all for sale
and if you ask them from me
i will buy them for you,

but then what will you do with all these?
tell me.

When The Two Faces Of Life İs Revealed And We Are Numbered

we are always together
in this estrangement
there is no entanglement of
necks in fact
there is the freedom of the
ten fingers
locks of hair can fall any moment
and without
any regret at all
we are always together in this
numbness
(do we have any choice?)
we do not suffer
neither do we have that
innate and
genuine joy
we are always in this together
a journey
to nowhere and when death comes
gladly
shall we welcome it
what is the use of
this life
when neither sadness nor joy
befriends us
there is no fear in all these
case closed.

The day and night are moving

through the cityscape billboards and landmarks
the benches in the park stand frozen alone
nothing sits them the way they sit despair
dead crumbs lying by the cigarette butts
city posts lights and a couple of open windows
like traffic signs of things directing too slow
each foot seems to be moving into
'where do we go? '
'uncontrolled movement into several directions'
flat screen tv will call it a 'situation'
I guess that's where we are placed
into a difficult, conflicting, conflicted 'sitting'

The eyes are black and beautiful complexion fair and sweet.

The eyes are black and beautiful complexion fair and sweet.

Long and loose hang the locks the face innocence breathes.
The brow is broad and winsome eyebrows arched and sharp.

The heart feels stirrings of love the looks downward creep.
Restlessness assails the heart which longs since eve to weep.

Love is in its nascent form in gentle waves the madness leaps.
The false promises that it makes somewhat its worth decrease.

Why shouldn't your lyric Shad touch our heart and soul?
They describe the facts of life and sketch the life complete.
