New Orleans II

New Orleans II
The battle of New Orleans
was fought with wind and rain,
no one won, but all have come
to feel the loss of home a homeless
person feels, he feels his loss
he feels his pain, he lives
from one day to the next
the same way and manner
all the rest of you do,
and sometimes better.

Are You Like All the Rest?

Are You Like All the Rest?
Are you like all the rest?
Just want to use me for sex?
I’m just tired of it,
So just go beat on your chest.
I will not waste my time,
I have better things to do then hear you whine.
Don’t tell me you want to be my Valentine…
O.K I’ll try you out for fun,
Don’t think you’re the only one.

Dust

Uninvited guests draw between
The cavernous fissures of the sheets Materializing without a due notice
Around paperback novels on the shelves

Cobwebs assemble on the drapes
Building audiences between the sills
As silent armies erupt out of focus
Like the remnants of a ghost town

Particles disperse through the air
As thousands of escaping dead tears
Looking to squat for another dry surface
To evade the blows of the vacuum

The mummified snow disappears
As a new aura rises with zeal
My bedroom forgets entropies profit
But I slowly rise into the dust

Crazy

Baby, I'm so into you
You've got that something, what can I do
Baby, you spin me around, oh
The earth is movin, but I can't feel the ground
Everytime you look at me
My heart is jumpin, it's easy to see
Loving you means so much more
More than anything I ever felt before
You drive me crazy
I just can't sleep
I'm so excited, I'm in too deep
Crazy, but it feels alright
Baby thinkin of you keeps me up all night
Tell me, you're so into me
That I'm the only one you will see
Tell me I'm not in the blue, oh
That I'm not wastin
My feelins on you
Loving you means so much more
More than anything I ever felt before
You drive me crazy
I just can't sleep
I'm so excited, I'm in too deep
Crazy, but it feels alright
Baby thinkin of you keeps me up all night
crazy, I just can't sleep
I'm so excited, I'm in too deep
Crazy, but it feels alright
Every day and every night
You drive me crazy
I just can't sleep
I'm so excited, I'm in too deep
Crazy, but it feels alright
Baby thinkin of you keeps me up all night
You drive me crazy
I just can't sleep
I'm so excited, I'm in too deep
Crazy, but it feels alright
Baby thinkin of you keeps me up all night
Baby thinkin of you keeps me up all night

Feel The Benefit

Reminisce and speculation
You went out on the street without your shoes on
You didnt listen what your momma said
She said you wont feel the benefit, wont feel the benefit
And if we all went out without our shoes on
Tell me where would we be, where would we be
If all the people in the world lost their reason
What would we see, where would we be
If all the entertainers in the world lost their music
What would they play, what could they say
To pacify the crowd, to justify themselves
Wont feel the benefit
Youre like a cloud behind the sun
Like the face behind the clown
Youre moving like the wrinkles in a frown
And you can never look back
A leaf thats borne upon the wind
A cardboard suitcase in your hand
The wanderer soon returns
And finds the colour of the grass is just the same
On the other side of the tracks, oh no
A latin break
Ooh when you smile its like a holiday
Ooh pack your bags and we can get away
Well float on a queen down to rio
Theres no need to shave
Well be stinking like rum in a punch
You can walk on the water
You can dabble in the mumbo jumbo
You can smoke a little ganja
Float like a cloud over rio, rio
You can ride with the gauchos
Swinging your bolas in a red bandana
You can run with the devil
Takin your chances with senorita
You can drink a lot of coffee in brazil
But the bill is gonna make you ill
Feel the benefit
So, you can go out on the street and take your chances
But if you do, you better do it right
Or you wont feel the benefit, wont feel the benefit
Spin the wheel and take your chances
And your number might come up
Though the odds may be in favor of the house
If all the people in the world would say together
Were all black and white, were all day and night
If all the people in the world could sing together
How would it sound, what would we feel
Wed all feel the benefit

The Song Unsung

So many people have sung so many songs
But they have not sung the song of You,
They are all unfortunate deaf and dumb
They have all forgotten about You
You are the song unsung
The intellectuality- the perfect beauty-
That is one thing men have achieved throughout history.

Oh! the creator of the song
I pray to thee-
To open their mind so wide
That the cosmos can not hold.
Make their heart so deep
That the measure can not fathom it.
Raise their standard so high
That the standard stands meaningless.
Make their voice so loud
That the eternal silence broken,
And even then deaf and dump can listen,
Make their voice so sweet
So that when they sing the song of you
Along with stones they will all start crying.

Oh! the creator of the song
I pray to thee
To mingle me with you,
The most eternal, the most exceptional,
So tight that the separation is impossible for me.
If they try to separate the song and the singer
Make all the things dust
Make the events of future for ever the events of past.
If they try to bring down the poet and the poem
Make all the things a ball of fire
And for ever, stop the motion of the gyre
To bring down the final destruction,
By starting the shrinking and stopping the expansion.

Oh! the creator of the poem
I pray to thee
The perfect
The beauty
The truth, the absolute.
Make me
Like you.
And make them too!
So that we can write of you.
The greatest song
The song of the universe.
The perfect immortality of intellectuality.

_________________________ _______________
______________________________ _________
The song itself is about intellectuality,
and the intellectuality is the perfect beauty,
the creator of intellectuality can not be imperfect,
Can He? the three terms 'intellectuality-the perfect beauty and god ' are not separated, they are mingled in one,
and the poet wants to mingle with Him along with other bards.
_______________________________________ ____
_________________________________________ _
And there is no image created in the poem as it is a post-modern poem.

Feel The Music

Feel the music...

Feel the music-
Feel that beat pounding in your head-
Feel it in your soul-
Stirring your soul-
Cleansing your mind...

Dance...

Feel the music-
Carrying you away with the rhythm-
Beyond the stars tonight-
As the rest of the world still toils...

Just dance the night away...

Just feel the music
And dance...

The Colour Of You

I can feel the colour of you
my brush can depict your face
my pencil the out-lines of your being

I can see the melody of your song
the song of your heart
the harmony that resonates in your soul

I can feel the colour of you
the complimentary shades in your eyes
the pantone of your song

my heart can hear that song
my soul can sing along

I Have To Cross The Great Ocean

I have to cross the great ocean
with my little boat
which has thousand holes
please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

The waves of the ocean are too high
than that of height of mount Everest
thousand Tsunamis are yet to come
please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

The little boat gifted to me by my Lord
I do not find another boat
due to my carelessness there is thousand holes
no mechanics can repair it
but i have to cross the great ocean

please tell my friend
how to cross the great ocean

Just when I Smile...

I get it,
you love women.
Sure...I am one!

I could stay in your frigid arms
as long as I want.

So many times I've said goodbye,
so so so many times I cry.

Back in your arms I always fall...
I meant it last time...
don't call.

Just when I began to smile,
you are standing next to me...
lifting that frigid arm,
sweet words...
again I am disarmed.

But wait,
I CAN choose my smile over you,
God help me to be through.

You can have a piece of my heart
as a parting gift...
but I have to keep the rest...
so that I can live! ! ! !

Possibilities

There are who fear the loosing of the knot
That ties our labouring brother to the oar.
Release him, say they, and he will not soar;
Full- fed and idle, he will fall and rot.
Give him his share — let sharp need scourge him not —
Let cruel spur of hunger prick no more,
But all have bounty of the rich world's store —
And wreck and ruin is our certain lot!

But ease the toil- worn arm, the anxious brain,
And Reason, set more firmly on her throne,
Should guide more truly the enfranchised will.
Though want depart, divine desires remain;
Man, born of God, lives not by bread alone,
And realms of Knowledge are to conquer still.

Woman In Me Needs The Man In You

Im not always strong
And sometimes Im even wrong
But I win when I choose
And I cant stand to lose
But I cant always be
The rock that you see
When the nights get too long
And I just cant go on
The woman in me
Needs you to be
The man in my arms
To hold tenderly
Cause Im a woman in love
And its you I run to
Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you
When the world wants too much
And it feels cold and out of touch
Its a beautiful place
When you kiss my face
The woman in me
Needs you to be
The man in my arms
To hold tenderly
Cause Im a woman in love
And its you I run to
Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you
Yeah the woman in me
Needs the man in you
I need you baby
Yeah yeah
Oh baby

Just Like All The Rest.

Just like all the rest, oh girl what have you been through. How can you say such things when you don't know. Hasn't he told you. I'm a train wreck. A man looking for a little substance in my life. And again you say like all the rest. Girl you must be so blessed to say that to me. For i know what i need and so must you. Cataclysmic was the time when we met. I was weak, so were you. I was looking for somebody. So were you. Still i hear you say just like all the rest. I must confess. When worlds collide. And tears fall that we try to hide. Always the better person. So rehearsed. So well versed. I can say just like all the rest. You left in such a mess. And you will still never know. You got to give someone a chance before you just let go. Just like all the rest are words i shall never forget.

Tougher Than The Rest

Written by Bruce Springsteen
Well it's Saturday night
You're all dressed up in blue
I've been watchin' you a while
Maybe you're watchin' me too
So somebody ran out
Left someone's heart in a mess
Well if you're ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest
Some girls want a handsome Dan
Or some good-lookin' Joe
On their arm, some girls like
A sweet-talking Romeo
Well around here baby
I learned you get what you can get
So if you're ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest
Well the road is dark
And it's a thin, thin line
But I want you to know
I'll walk it for you any time
Maybe your other boyfriends
Couldn't pass the test
But if you're ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest
Well it ain't no secret
I've been around a time or two
Well I don't know baby
Maybe you've been around too
But there's another dance
All you gotta do is say yes
And if you're ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest
If you're sure you're ready for love
Honey I'm tougher than the rest

Killing The Thing That You Love

Brick by brick you built a mansion
Piece by piece it seems
Youre tearing it down
Once you walked so tall and handsome
Now nobody even wants you around
Now youre just some kind of
Leftover clown
Now youre like Quasi Modo crying
As you look in the mirror
At what youve become
Killing the thing that you love
Like Lennons assassin
Lennons assassin
Reaching for Venus De Milo
But shes never gonna hold you tight
You plant plutonium silos
Then you blister from the sun thats too bright
Like a vampire stepping into the light
Just a victim of your own greed as you
Look in the mirror
At what youve become
Killing the world that you love
Like Lennons assassin
Lennons assassin
The genius of a generation
Blown away just like a leaf on the wind
And now youre looking for salvation
But you cant forget the places youve been
And you cant erase a lifetime of sin
And you cant escape the answers as you
Look in the mirror
At what youve become
Dredging the river for what you have done
Killing the thing that you love
Like Lennons assassin
Lennons assassin

Its Time

The partys over
Your time is up
Youve had your last pointless teardrop
Washed down in that broken coffee cup
This magic moment concludes when that cigarette ends
Did you get what you wanted?
Well I suppose that depends
Well I suppose that depends
If you go, if you go
Where passion is squandered and money is spent
Its time, its time
Its time, its time
Its time, its time, its time
You must see its time that you went
You must see its time that you went
Our brief acquaintance was such a mistake
Now it seems more like a sentence
Or something you always had to fake
This magic moment concludes when they turn out the light
Its not the days when you leave me
But all I fear are the nights
But all I fear are the nights
Chorus
You told the same joke to me too many times
I wish that someone would hit it
Just before you reach
Just before you reach
Just before you reach the punchline
The partys over
Time we broke up
It always seemed like a bad dream
One where I finally woke up
This magic moment concluding our mutual fate
But if you do have to leave me
Who will I have left to hate?
Who will I have left to hate?
Chorus

The rich are always going to say that, you know, just give us more money and we'll go out and spend more and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you. But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on.

Universal

‘Universelle:
She is youth, she has no age.
She sees everything, she judges nothing.
She is innocent, she is powerful.
She comes from the past,
She is the future.’


Unrecognized though foreordained,
nought losing yet to all as lost,
innocent, though counting cost,
vast as the Past, as Future chained
eternally to Fate’s fire-frost
rich as we shall be we’ve remained.

Unique and common, in between
night’s sighs, dawn’s longings, scarce serene;
we float here, there, through dreams’ insight.
Although the strings stay out of sight
Chance intertwines lives, sets the scene
which spins round Time’s wheel infinite.

Game gambol gamble plays roulette
with Cause, Effect, would hedge its bet,
but all too often intervenes
the wild card held by Time who’s seen
to pull those strings till all forget,
till all’s forgotten, both ‘what was’, what might have been...

By the Woods one day

By the woods one day i walked,
until i saw the blue bird making his noise,
in a way that he speaks to us, so wisely,
birds are so into their way, why can't man,
do th same in his ways, so into this world

One Day The Earth Will Open Up For My Brother On What Would Have Been His Seventy- Second Birthday

One day the earth will open up
And take me also
As it has taken so many others I love

Dear Brother
Twenty years
Gone from this world
Will we ever see each other again?
I doubt it

As I walk home in the morning after davvaning
These leaves these flowers these trees
How I wish you could see them also.
