  8397.     

it will always be still for my own good

last night i was almost caught

do not ask me what it was

i was almost caught and my body

shook like a vibrating fork and my

mouth shut off like a door and no

matter how she tries to open it

something inside me refused to

let her in.

if she caught me, i could have known

how the Sphinx did the extinction upon

itself.

somehow there was this ambivalence

if i were caught i could have been free.

but i was not caught

and so i remain in this self-imposed enclosure

i feel safe. But i am unhappy.

there are always two sides of our choices.

but i trust my instincts. Whatever i choose

it will always be still for my own good.

last night, i know that feeling, how to live

and how to die.

  8398.     

it will always be you

Wherever I am or in whatever
Situation I find myself
Be it in prayer or
Play or serious consideration
Of me & her,
It will always be you in my mind,
My soul,
It will always be you, in all my sins
Today, tomorrow,
It will always be you, how can I ever
Learn to be
True to myself,
as it will always be you
In my brain
Damaged till the end, it will always be you, how

Can I ever imagine myself always loving you,
Always imagining you
While I make love to her, while I move around my world

I become so ugly in you and we become
So ugly like wrinkles and scars
But it will always be you,
& me, I swear, I inser always you & me in there,
And no one else,
It will always be you,
How can I be so unforgiving?

How can I be so dishonest?
Always in sin, always in the ecstasy in the wrong workings
Of my mind,
It will always be you just the same,

The world will never know, because it
Cannot understand, I can feel it.
It has only the cruelty for it,
Like savage to a slave.

Reverse me, tumble me, and hate me,
It will always be you. You will always never know.

  8399.     

it will be another week

another week of unbecoming
retracing genes of
great grandfathers, these vomiting
moments of our lives
what they taught perhaps
shall linger like leeches
but we like them all to leave us
so we can also
lick our own wounds without them
watching with whirlpool faces

another week of hibernation
getting to know this self like it were a stranger
knocking on my door

for a while i must accept all these
treat this stranger to a drink
vodka or rum
i may hum and make myself numb
on this mantra of manifestations
here i am
embrace me says the stranger
i have been longing to have you
and hold you tight unto my arms
let us talk
you and i.

my name is your name
and my emptiness is yours too.
let us drink to this!

  8400.     

it will be necessary

she will sleep there
till evening

from 2 o'clock in the
afternoon

after lunch, she will not
be waked up

by anybody of the house
she must know

after all these hours
that no one is coming

it will be sad but it will
be necessary

it is inevitable
it is always named departure
