learning the art of sacrifices

what i understand is that
i have learned the art of
sacrifice

i know how to choose a place
and stay there
they say it is a mistake
but i keep it to myself
like my
idea of you

it can make you angry of course
and i you decide to leave
(or die)
i will be left alone
to tackle
who i am and it is a very
hard
subject to thresh out
and understand

what i keep to myself
i keep forever
& you whom i keep on saying i love
shall share this
moment of self-imposed silence

i know we both understand
these arts of sacrifices
and i well know that we find solace
in not
saying anything
in not giving it a name
because
though it has been born and
reside here
(i point my finger
to my
heart)
yet no one knows it completely
without
throwing it somehow
sometimes
when it gets so heavy
and hurting

and then we say that we are
enclosed by it
and we are
owned completely like
a fence

because there is no other way
except....

Learning The Dance Of Your Life

one can learn the dance
in due time
one does not sleep but must wake up
to feel the song
at dawn
when the sound of the wind is
sonorous
it is the wisdom of dusk
that must tell you what to do
to learn
the true dance of your life

one can learn but it is not that
fast as reading a book the whole day
and saying to yourself
this is all and there is nothing more

life can never be a book with
definite pages
the title is misleading us
and the end always is a big surprise

your dance will always be original
you live and let live
and you can never have a pattern to
compare

at night you are stunned
things are not happening as you expect them
you adjust
like the water to the river
like air to a transparent container
filling each space
until the hollowness is full

you learn the dance of life
and no one is teaching you

Learning The Games Of This World

good men don't fall down
permanently as bad men don't stay that high
on top by reason of
their devices
permanently

in fact there is nothing permanent
without which
this world becomes absurd
like marble that cannot roll and spin

games will always be there
for as long as our eyes stay young like budding
blossoms

there is no one here who is permanently poor
and dumb
everyone learns to experience that pain and
opens like some bleeding hands

hearts that erupt from deep volcanic sleep
and covers a well lighted city at night
turning into a forest with all its trees devastated
in a new world of
all oceans

our eyes see nothing but a covered table
no spoons and plates
chairs tumbling down like mass execution

Learning the Patience of the Spider...

patience is the
spider's trick &
i am learning
such virtue, &
when i am
confronted with
such a situation
that demands
the quick action
of temper, I,
simply spit,
spin my web
& in it, I,
entangle you.
