A Resolution

early in the morning
as we pray in church
searching for
light
we ponder deep
like a well
without rope
on a rusty pail
and then we open our eyes
not seeing any light
we find the darkness instead
and then we step out
and walk on our
separate ways.

A Response To Love Unrequited

i've seen love offered
which i did not love for once
and for fear that
i may mislead love to a place
not intended for it
i simply ignore it

i had love and spent it all
until i do not have any

i am not that happy if you
ask for
that higher standard of
having to live away from misery

but i know love and i know how to throw it away
so that i may cause no pain at
all

or that it may not cause any pain
at me

(for who likes pain?
i too, want to avoid
that unnecessary pain
that i do not wish
to bear with out any
meaning)

what i wish to tell you
is this: i have learned to live
alone
at least in my mind
that on nights that i am just
myself in bed and with
no other
in peace shall i
soundly sleep

and you who say
that you do not love me anymore

i shall reply:
i really don't care.

A Reunion

Often a man's life is such
that he seldom sees his friends,
like the night and day
never sharing the same hours
In the skies
Seldom does he share
His evenings with friends
Or his mornings
His lamp light unshared
His mornings unspent
How long will this
Distance last?

Hairs have turned
White and lesser
As we inquire about
Friends and other
Acquaintances only
To find out that half of
Them have turned
To ghosts,

Shocks and torments
Of this heart, cries
But I will try again
To enter your home
Twenty five years
And now you have
Two sons and three
Daughters to greet
Me by the door
I thought you never
Married and they all
Kiss my hands and
Before I can ask the
Questions you drive
Them off to the grounds
To play away from us
As we talk about
Lasting friendships
And how we have
Almost forgotten them

Tomorrow I will be drunk
Again back to my own
Affairs in the big city
We will be separated
Again by these peaks
Of mountains and we
Shall again lose each
Other’s friendly views.

A Reunion To Our Sadness

my friend on this reunion
of our sadness
to desires untamed
to hopes untouched
to a love that
we both lost
we look to the sky
tonight and gape
our mouths wide
we shall catch the
the rain

some leaves
some flowers
some dusts
