Hard To Tell

Ive had enough, Im tired of waiting
The time has come to pass
Why do you do what you do to me
Why cant you say what you want to say
Is it not worth investigating
I thought [Id been harassed]
Why do you go if you wanna stay
How will I know what you mean to say
Undoubtedly Im all over you
(chorus)
Its not that easy baby
Its not that hard to tell
Its not that easy baby
Life is hell but Im doing fine.
Its hard to tell
Im not good at contemplating
The odds are it wont last
Why do you do what you do to me
When will I hear what I wanna hear
Been so long anticipating

A Bird Has No Wings In The Storm

I started re-reading Kawabata Yasunari san's 'Izu no Odoriko'
and I dream of your golden country 'Japan'.
I was surprised as I have been there.
Chiba-ken, Matsudo city, sakura-dori, tokiwadaira coffe master
funabashi Japanese language school,
the railway between Kunugiyama & goko.
Sapporo beer, sake with sakasuki
taste of tempura and udong; sushi and sashimi
the restaurants I visited with my life long friend Shozo Suzuki san and his
family.
I walk towards in the memory lane
melancholy tune of windbells in Yoshiwara,
still I breathe the cool breeze there
and I sniff the fragrance of death from isolated graveyards
I would like to drown in Sumida -kawa
like Dazai Ozamu san who killed himself by drowning in the lakeTamagawa at Inokashira park.
I am sure that you will bury me near by Ishikawa Takuboku san's grave.
Though I am a Sri Lankan, I may be belongs to your soil in my early birth.
Oh! God if you are still remain in the sky; please grant me an opportunity to see them at least once
before I die in my cage.

Kashmiri Song

Pale hands I love beside the Shalimar,
Where are you now? Who lies beneath your spell?
Whom do you lead on Rapture's roadway, far,
Before you agonise them in farewell?

Oh, pale dispensers of my Joys and Pains,
Holding the doors of Heaven and of Hell,
How the hot blood rushed wildly through the veins
Beneath your touch, until you waved farewell.

Pale hands, pink tipped, like Lotus buds that float
On those cool waters where we used to dwell,
I would have rather felt you round my throat,
Crushing out life, than waving me farewell!

Thorn-less Roses

You strip the thorns from all my roses;
they preen themselves
in the Soul Dust
from your eyes.

The brook in my heart
plumbs your depths
rush down
the waterfall
to swirling
rapids below,
tracing the path
to our
Spiritual Sea;
settling there
in the peace
Thorn-Less Roses bring.

There among the sediments
layered over these years

The irony is that the more unapologetically sexist men are in movies, the more women tend to be attracted to them in person.

My blind friend describes an illusive dream

An angel-like woman in her forties,
She is a crossing-guard in a street of heaven.
Wears a negligee form a cloud
And I see her bare nakedness.
Her small breasts like two sugary fruits
And the slim body belongs to the grape hyacinth family.
She holds a pigeon-heart.
Oh! The fleshy buttocks, if I could rest my burdensome head
on such a comfortable pillow,
I would never wake up to this cruel World.
I am not a Saint but I didn't get any carnal feelings
As she's really a living Goddess.
We crossed together and she said; 'Study well dear,
The Education that nobody robs.'
I said ' I cannot go to school anymore and I stay with her.'
Then she said; 'How do I help on your studies as I have never been to a school? '
Oh! The sudden painful wake up and I realized that I am born blind.

* I humbly dedicate this poem to the Southern California's Senior Newspaper
'Not Born Yesterday! '

The Princes' Quest - Part the Second

A fearful and a lovely thing is Sleep,
And mighty store of secrets hath in keep;
And those there were of old who well could guess
What meant his fearfulness and loveliness,
And all his many shapes of life and death,
And all the secret things he uttereth.
But Wisdom lacketh sons like those that were,
And Sleep hath never an interpreter:
So there be none that know to read aright
The riddles he propoundeth every night.

And verily, of all the wondrous things
By potence wrought of mortal visionings
In that dark house whereof Sleep hath the keys-
Of suchlike miracles and mysteries
Not least, meseems, is this among them all:
That one in dream enamoured should fall,
And ever afterward, in waking thought,
Worship the phantom which the dream hath brought.
Howbeit such things have been, and in such wise

If I had learned more about business ahead of time, I would have been shaped into believing that it was only about finances and quality management.

I Hate Love

I Hate Love
By: October


I hate Love,
The way it tears you apart.
The way they look at you with eyes of pity.

'We'll always be friends.' They say.
'Nothing will change.' Is what I hear.

Or if they're hurtful about it,
And they sneer it,
'I hate you! '
'Don't ever talk to me.'
'I never want to see you again...'

The words that tore at me,
Slashing me to pieces,
Ripping my broken heart to shreds...
