When You Start To Talk About Nothing

the moment you start to talk about nothing
mind you, this nothing becomes something
and this something becomes something more
like a raindropp falling becoming a worm
the worm becoming a fish
the fish becoming a bird
the bird becoming a man

smaller ones taking bigger shapes
until it becomes a part of you
until it becomes you
until it becomes something bigger than you

all it takes is just a simple beginning
and you making meaning shaping bigger things
more than yourself
more than you can ever think of at the end

I Know There Are More Poems In Me Than I Can Ever Write

I KNOW THERE ARE MORE POEMS IN ME THAN I CAN EVER WRITE

I know there are more poems in me
Than I can ever write
I know that I will die
With thousand upon thousands
Of unwritten memories
And songs, dreams and perceptions-
I know each poem
A small sample
Of a larger universe
I myself cannot encompass
Words upon words
Worlds upon worlds which
Will die when I die.

The Greatest Plague

Hate consumes the people of the world like a
plague that kills. Turn to hate we do in times
where things are wrong in thine eyes. Try to
justify it by calling it what you like but in
the end it all amounts to hate. Someone attacks
the weak we go after them claiming justice but
we allow the anger to lead us away. Sorrow can
leads us to hate without a soul even realizing
it. So hate has the ulitmate power in this world
that call home. Hate is everything that does not
envelop love or happiness. We allow more hate
than love in this land. You can call it what you
like. Spite anger sorrow loss sadness jealousy
pain. They all lead down the road to hatred.
The paths may go in different ways but all in
in the same place. Being there alone without
a person to stand at your side. Without the
happiness and joys of life. You can say that
sorrow loss and sadness are not hate but when
you think about it your sorrow can turn feeling
sorrow for a person can turn to hurting another
you feel anger towards those who would not help.
Loss you blame someone or something for taking
someone away from you. Perhaps your loss can
change into seeking vengence. Sadness how could
it turn you wander but sadness it self it loss
and sorrow. When sad you are easily swayed by
one of great influence good or bad. Hate has
the power to do more to us than one can ever
think or imagine. For those who do no see it
just turn the pages back in time and all shall
be revealed then. Hate is destroying us swiftly
one day at a time. Hate is the worlds greatest
plague.

The World Is More Than I Can Ever See

THE WORLD IS MORE THAN ALL I CAN EVER SEE

The world is more than all I can ever see
Its secret bits of dust reform
In ways no particle accelator can recreate.

We live and die in promises of forgetfulnesses
Great silences and seeings
Of beings we never
are-.
All we know and all
We live and die for-

It is only this moment
Of interminable silence
Upon which this poem
never
Ends.

Baby, Please Dont Go

In hopes to talk to you
I keep waiting for you
You say baby, I love you a million times
And yet, you said the final good bye

And now when I am sad and hurt.
You simply ignore and say my attitude sucks
I take all the blame now
In hopes of getting you back now

You say that you love me with all your heart
And I say I love you too with all my heart
Then why is it so hard to keep things straight between us
And not have any room for confusion between us

You say, I don' believe you
I say, I believe you more than you yourself do
You say, that you don't keep secrets and ever lie
But baby here's the thing - using words and even silence is a way to lie

All, I can say is baby, I love you more than you can ever think of
I love you more than anyone can ever think of
Baby, I'd give up my life for you
The way I gave my heart and soul to you

Baby, please don't go
Baby please don't go.

Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of

I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard

I'm just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling look at you
You gotta stand up straight
Carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it

Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing

I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now
My

You Can Do It

The sky is limit
Nothing is impossible
You gotta try
You got to live like there is no tomrrow
We got to let go and enjoy life
Sometimes we need courage and support to anything we desire
In our life we deal with pain, drama and all sort of things
Just stand up and keep walking
You can do it
You just got to believe
I be here for you if you need me
You are not alone
If you work hard, something good will come out of it
God is here for us to help us through the challenges
You can do it
It's not end of world if something don't go your way
We won't always be happy and
Everything we want or do might not go our way
We have to deal with it
It's not fair, but it's life
You can do it

The Moment You Left Me

The moment you left me
I suffered the whole night long
Thats where I go wrong
And thats where you go wrong
When Ive got a problem
Say Ill talk to the whole wide world
Yes I will, yes I will
Im gonna love you
Im gonna squeeze you
Im gonna do all the things
That I forgot to do
Thinking about my saviour with a smile
Oh she can talk about chasing
The heart in me away
Tell me, tell me
Is that where she goes wrong
Im gonna love you
Im gonna squeeze you
Im gonna do all the things
That I forgot to do
Now that Ive made the right solution
I think that Ive found the right resolution
Heaven knows where you go
Im gonna love you
Im gonna squeeze you
Im gonna do all the things
That I forgot to do

What 'Brothers' Do You Talk About?

What 'brothers' do you refer to?
Not the ones you annoyed, destroyed
And chased away?

Not the ones you avoided,
When the 'man' said that was okay?

Not the ones you babied and sent to stay,
Confined behind bars to learn about other crimes...
With chances that 'brother' would someday be gay.

What 'brothers' do you talk about?
That are not worthy of your support or praise.

Those 'brothers' are there and may sit on high horses.
But these 'brothers' you say betray.
Instead of seeing it their way.
With unsuccessful attempts to have them branded,
As weak with even temperments you can control.
And no 'brother' I know will allow that to happen...
Again!
Knowing what it is like having that to be done.

I Want To Talk About You

Dont tell me about a night in june
Or a shady lane beneath the velvet moon
Dont tell me, cause I wanna talk about you.
Dont mention that waterfall
Or that shady nook where crickets softly call
Dont tell me, cause I wanna talk about you.
The moon and the stars, the objects on mars
Are things that weve talked of before
But your love for me was the question
Your answer throws back heavens door, so
Tell me, your love will be sincere,
Then my darling, you neednt ever fear
I love you and I wanna talk about you.
The moon and the stars, the objects on mars
Are things that weve talked of before
But your love for me was the question
Your answer throws back heavens door, so
Tell me, your love will be sincere,
Then my darling, you neednt ever fear
I love you and I wanna talk about you.

I Wanna Talk About Me !

Uh huh, thats right
We talk about your work, how your boss is a jerk,
We talk about your church and your head when it hurts.
We talk about the troubles youve been havin wit your brother
bout your daddy and your mother and your crazy ex-lover.
We talk about your friends and the places that youve been,
We talk about your skin and the dimples on your chin.
The polish on your toes and the run in your hose,
And God knows were gonna talk about your clothes.
You know talkin about you makes me smile, but every once in a while,
I wanna talk about me, I wanna talk about i
Wanna talk about number 1 oh my, me, my,
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see.
I like talkin about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me! (me, me, me,) I wanna talk about me-e-e. (me, me, me)
We talk about your dreams and we talk about your schemes,
Your high school team and your moisturizer cream.
We talk about your nana up in muntzi, indiana,
We talk about your grandma down in alabama.
We talk about your guys of every shape and size,
The ones that you despize and the ones you idolize.
We talk about your heart, bout your brains and your smarts,
And your medical charts and when you start.
You know talkin about you makes me grin, but every now and then,
I wanna talk about me, I wanna talk about i,
Wanna talk about number 1 oh my, me, my.
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see.
I like talkin about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally
I wanna talk about me! (me, me, me,) I wanna talk about me-e-e (me, me, me)
(I wanna talk about me) mmmm me, me, me, me, me
(I wanna talk about me) mmmm me, me, me, me, me
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you,
I wanna talk about me!
I wanna talk about me, I wanna talk about i,
Wanna talk about number 1 oh my, me, my.
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see,
Oh I like talkin about you, you, you, you usually, but occasionally,
I wanna talk about me! (me, me, me) I wanna talk about me-e-e
I wanna talk about me! (me, me, me) no me-e-e! (me, me, me)

Kisses Instead Of Scars If You Can Manage It

Kisses instead of scars if you can manage it.
Love, not a science. Still an art. Though a dying one.
The discipline of staying a constant beginner.
As if the morning glory had never felt the light before.
You want to love or be loved? Make up your heart.
But you want to sword dance with queen cobras in heat
like a lapwing in a snake pit, two egg-layers
at opposite ends of the same extreme, you better not
step on anyone's toes, and if you do, hope
the wing you favoured with a false wound
like a collapsed bridge you lay down like a joker
to trump your Tarot pack, is as long as the other
royal flush you neglected to play like a winning hand.
Human, you might be the measure of all things,
but believe me when I tell you, love's got a bigger wingspan
than Cygnus and Aquila in the Summer Triangle have light-years
to get a fix on the wing tips of their feathers by parallax.

Love with class if you want to make something elegant
of your absurdity, diamonds of your dirt, if you want to
water flowers with your tears without salting the seed bed.
If you want to steal a little fire from the mystery
to enlighten your nightmare, if you want to be the star
that everyone points to in your lover's eye,
don't enter it like a dirty needle of light washed up on a beach,
you keep overdosing on like a starmap with a bad addiction.
Love is a retroactive prediction from the past come true at last.
Even after dismemberment, love is Orphic, a prophetic skull
bobbing like an apple all the way to Mytilene from Thrace,
that can still sing the dead back up out of hell
until they realize the light of love's too strong
for the eyes of gibbering shades and turn around
as if they'd come too far down the wrong road.

As a working stiff, love is kind, generous, trustworthy, loyal,
like the smell of heartwood after a carpenter has built
his own sturdy cross. Not acrid oak, but terebinth.
As a thaumaturge, love works miracles with silver herbs
cool as moonlight laying its feathers on the sacred pools
you return to like a battered salmon or a sword in tribute
to give back in gratitude what was given to you.
O, yes, you can be a nice guy or an agreeable woman
for a moment, and bask in the whole wheat sunshine
of a promising harvest, but love is the blue,
the second full moon in October and it looks down
on what's been threshed to see what you've left for the birds
and if you ever get so drunk in your delirium
you went dancing with the scarecrows as if you
were all martyred by the same cause like a prelude
of watchdogs to the white nights of the living dead.
Love's a celebrant high on the bliss of poppy wine
but it doesn't turn the dancing floors of the starfields
into a bride catalogue for impoverished wallflowers.
Love's got the eyes of a snake, the voice of a bird
and the wings of a vampiric bat in an unpredictable eclipse.
And when love mystically sublimates its appetites
like black ice into more beatific ionospheres of solar flaring,
the poetry goes aurorally absurd, but nobody cares
because everybody's more awed by the picture-music
of the rippling veils than they are by the face behind them.

You make love safe. You take the danger out of it,
you defang the lightning storm, you brainwash
the theta waves of the turbulent night sea
where the soul journeys alone, into saying aum
every time there's a breathless squall of stars in the southwest,
though you might think in your lustreless way
you're throwing sacred holy oil on troubled waters
you're just another oil slick running a nunnery of pearls.
You want your honey without a stinger. You want
your rose without a thorn. A one-eyed oxymoron.

I've made it a counter-intuitive point of survival
most of my occult romantic afterlife
to never fall in love with a woman until I'm absolutely certain
it's well within her power to kill me outright
without a word of warning. But she abstains
and in that moment of hesitation you can live
three full lifespans on the cutting edge of a black hole
without a fear of lights or vertiginous heights.
You can ride the helical stairwells of your mutual d.n.a.
like the parallel bannisters of two hawks wheeling
synchronously on the twisted ladder
of their thermophilic passions for the highs and lows of love.
When did Icarus ever fly too close to the sun
with a parachute or a safety net? What fool
shot out of a cannon like a fly into a spider web
doesn't expect to get entangled in the details
of hedging his bets instead of taking the fall on his chin.
If you fall in love, and you're not a clown,
or someone who bumbled over the cliff by accident,
be prepared to fall deeper than any place
your death has ever descended into before, and darker,
and more intense than the petty sentiments
of people dropping stones in wishing wells
to fathom the abyss by staring into the eyes of a telescope.

I don't want to talk about 'it'!

No thanks.

I don’t want to talk aboutit’.
It’? F*cking ‘it’?

That
tiny,
snivelling
insignificant
mono
syllab ic simile
for something that’s bigger
than a f*cking aircraft hanger?

Your puerile insensitivity

Let me leave you with that thought.

Hanging in the air,
For you to store in your
F*cking aircraft hanger

Let's talk about weather baby!

I had red strawberries and a clear apple
For supper last night, finally spring has
Come, so let’s talk about weather baby!
About all the cold things and the hot
Things Nature can be! Are the flowers
Blooming up there? So you know
I love you but you don’t want me to
Because you won’t love me too
I say we talk about weather baby
Somewhere lukewarm where I hide
Special things, there my love shall rest.
‘Tis burning hot down here, too…

I Will Not Talk About Pain This Christmas

i promise you
i will not talk about pain this christmas
i will rest from pain
i will embrace the joys of men and women
i will talk about the birth
of hope for mankind
i will write about saving grace
i will listen to the sounds of peace
i will look at the stars and ponder upon their twinkles
i will not give my tears
i will give so many smiles
i will not close my hands
i will send a lot of roses to all my friends and foes
i will be home early at night
i will pray that God may make things right
i will ask for a longer life
i will wish that there will no more be strife

i promise you all, for this christmas.

Why Talk About War To An Anti War One Like Me

Why talk about war to an anti war one like me
Since you know with what you say of it I won't agree
Since talking of military matters I'd rather decline
And your sort of heroes will never be mine
Your points about war to me you've already made
Though I won't march with you in the war parade
With you the like minded will stand at your side
Whilst you wave the flag with great fervour and pride
'Tis good in a way we see things differently
If we all thought in the same way how boring we'd be
Waving our National flags as we walk up and down
To the beat of the war drums through the streets of the town
You do love the National flag but so too do I
But for the flag I would not shoot to kill or die.

The Right Moment

(g. rafferty)
Spinning on another wheel
Going round in slow motion
Caught up in another dream
Drifting on a blue ocean
When you gonna reach out
Only you can turn your world around
When will you surrender
And wake up to the real
But you dont want to start just yet
You watch the seasons come and go
You remember and then you forget
All along the way
You can make a better life
Youre just waiting for the right moment
You can find another way
Youre just waiting for the right moment
When you gonna let go
And forget about the life you knew
When will you surrender
And wake up to the real
Now you know that its all borrowed time
Still you waste another day
But you watch and you wait for a sign
All along the way

Let Us Talk About The Hunger

Let's talk about the children
Not the tigers trees or whales
Let's talk about the hunger.
Not the guns sins or jails
Let's talk about the innocent blood
Not god faith or prophets
Let's talk about the tears.
Maybe then we can stop it

Let's talk about the reason
Children sleep out in the cold
I'm tired of the greenhouse speech
It's getting a little old.

Let's talk about the meaning
Of why the world is blind
Sound asleep and dreaming
Everyone has words to cure.

Silent are the voices
When human blood is spilled
Before we save the whales and trees
Let's talk about truth
Children come before the trees
Let's discuss the root.

A noble act indeed
But if we spent it on the children
We would give meaning to the seed
Let's talk about the day
We set the children free
Show them they are loved
More than any animal or tree

Nothin You Can Do About It

Have you heard the news?
Im doing what I said I would
So now you say
Boy, I always knew you could
My wildest dreams
Murdered by reality
I gave you all I could give to you
But now Im taking back what belongs to me
I read you like a drugstore book
Howd I ever think you were cool
You got no bait left on your hook
Youre no friend and buddy, Im no fool
Chorus:
Aint nothin you can do about it
Aint nothin you can say
Aint nothin you can do about it
No ones gonna stand in my way
Ive done my time
Ive given up my pound of flesh
So why cant the man seem to understand
That Ive already passed the test
You did your best to keep me down
Tried to make my spirit give in
But Im here to make a big, big sound
Its your turn to lose and its my turn to win
Repeat chorus
I know you can never go back
Once you turn and walk out that door
Got no time for worries like that
Im not a kid anymore
You did your best to keep me down
Tried to make my spirit give in
But Im here to make a big, big sound
Its your turn to lose and my turn to win
Repeat chorus

I Don't Want To Talk About It Now

God knows how I love you
Like a user needs a drug
And I'll never be free of ya
You are poison in my blood.
I tried to swim that river
And get to higher ground
I been three times under
The next one'll see me drown.
But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I wanna go down.
God knows why you don't want me
No one would do the things I do
But to my grave it's gonna haunt me
How I got down on my knees for you.
You are my obsession
And the reason that I live
You alreday got my soul
There's nothin left to give.
But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I wanna go down.
The devil is deep water baby
And I'm in way over my head
But I'd be drawn and quartered
If I could keep you in my bed.
I can't break this spell
I know the trouble that I'm in
But If I got out of the mouth of hell
I'd walk right back again.
But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I wanna go down...
