  7197.     

if only i have two hearts

if only
granting then that i have two hearts
what will i do with the other one

this one
i point to my heart
yes this one
has loved you
and still loves you more
despite the passage of so much time
it may have mellowed
and learned from the pains
of some old wounds
they healed
and learned what true love is

what will i do with this one
i point to this other heart
wanting to love
but just cannot
what will i do with this
loving but loveless heart
spare and bare
but cannot
dare

this heart shall kill me too
i may have two hearts
but i die only once
and it was only you

if i live
i live with this one heart alone
the one that bled
that healed

the one stronger still
and needs
in fact
no other

  7198.     

If only my eyes do not pain

If only my eyes do not pain
If only these eyes do not get tired
Eyes they are of a human frailty

I could have written a thousand
More poems in
256 ghz

but I am just a man
a mere mortal
with mortal eyes

I am not Dracula
I am not God

I have eyes that pain
I have fingers that tremble
I have a body that is frail
I have a soul that once in a while
Falter and fall and stumble

So please bear with me
In my tiredness the words slow down
Like dying soldiers in the front
While the war rages on and on and on

  7199.     

if only the hills and trees could speak

if only the hill and trees could speak
it could have told you, how stupid and foolish have you been

waking up too early and doing all the things that others could have done for you
feeding the lazy ones, giving flowers to the uncaring, writing letters unanswered

loving much where they love you not, writing poems to cyberspace, thinking that
the stars too distant from you glisten to listen

and you speak to all these trees and hills that do not speak to you
and you write all these inanimate silence a letter: i know what love is and i keep on loving no matter what, for unlike you i am animated with love itself,
for love touches and speaks and cares and always wanting to be infinite.

  7200.     

if only the moon, the sun and the stars are

if only the moon and the sun and the stars
are for sale,
if only the night can be packaged exclusively
for personal use
if only the day can be bottled and sealed
for a certain exclusivity
if only the stars can be put in a glass bowl
and let them stay there
like some goldfishes
if only all the other planets and comets and meteors
can be kept in the store
and all for sale
and if you ask them from me
i will buy them for you,

but then what will you do with all these?
tell me.
