Something That Stays

I knew you would find something here for you.
I knew you enjoyed comfort.
And I like that too.
I knew you would enjoy
An atmosphere of peace.
I knew you would feel
Relaxed and at ease.
I knew you would find something here for you.
What we have discovered,
Only me and you knew...
The something that you wanted is me!
And all that you are
Is the something I've always wanted.
I knew you would find something here for you.
And I am hoping for us,
This is the something that stays!

The Duck that Stays so Still

daily food for me
right in front of me
come rain or shine
oh master
for your love
i would die for you
anytime, this passion
in me that
runs high as the mountains
my loving master
such a friend to me
yes, i would die
for my master
the duck stays so still
for the knife to go into him one day

People Like That

People may cry...
When happy sometimes,
For reasons.

Feelings they hide,
Deep inside them...
Come to the surface to flow free!

Possibly,
The tears seen fall from a need.
More than anyone can see.
And emotions not outwardly shown,
Glisten from eyes unexpectedly...
Showing a neglected human quality!

People grow...
Exposing thoughts ever changing.
Maturity shifts us shaking to break molds,
We hold onto...
As if we are glued to a time that stays.

No one experiences these 'movements' the same.
Some become upset.
Some they knew have renewed mindsets!
And people like that often talk behind others' backs!

People may cry...
When happy sometimes,
For reasons.

Feelings they hide,
Deep inside them...
Come to the surface to flow free!
Showing an honesty trusted.
In times when 'who' we think we are...
Is never the way we believe we should be treated!

The scar that stays

Sophistry and chicanery-
The politicians are capable of.
They earn them instant success.
But leave to the posterity
An indelible scar.

Forget

Can you forget
The hurt in my
Eyes?

Neither can I.

Every time
I look in the
Mirror, it
Reminds me
Of you.

The hurt
That stays
In my eyes
Because of you.

What makes literature interesting is that it does not survive its translation. The characters in a novel are made out of the sentences. That's what their substance is.

I think Maus I is better than Maus II. The standard here is whether or not it's as good as a great book of prose literature and by that standard, no, it's not that great.

The moral backbone of literature is about that whole question of memory. To my mind it seems clear that those who have no memory have the much greater chance to lead happy lives.

A Revelation From A 4o Year Old Student

he is not married
and not into women
he has a child
that stays with his sister
in that
faraway city

he is here studying law
single and
happy

a matter of choice he says
life is not complicated.

Love and possessiveness

To love is to possess
But to possess is not to love.
To possess is a persistent calyx
That stays after the love’s exit.

Young couple loves each other.
The aged couple possesses each other.

Addict (Holiness)

the arms that hold the addict shaking,
the hands that wipe his vomit stained face...
the ears that listen to his need,
the heart that stays beside him.
the mind that shows him a better way....
the spirit that believes!

The function of literature, through all its mutations, has been to make us aware of the particularity of selves, and the high authority of the self in its quarrel with its society and its culture. Literature is in that sense subversive.

Protectively

the tiny morning hand runs through my hair
born in a smile an embryo laughter
thank you for waking me up
I will protect you
keep you safe like the first morning thought
that stays there forever
written in the heart

-to the daughters of air-

But when you lose a family member or something tragic happens, that stays with you forever. You never get over it. Knowing that you have to deal with that for the rest of your life... Football is important, but not as important as you once thought it was.
