  9453.     

Logically It Should Have Been You

if the brain is the heart
i could have loved and married you and lived with you
but my heart has a mind of its own
always at war with my brain
my logical choices versus the glowing of the heart
what could have been
and what must be
and what should have been

all these are discarded because the heart
says this
and i followed it
to the last letter of its sigh
its longings
its quivers
and to the end i may have regretted it
telling myself
how dumb had i been

the heart has its own reasons
which i cannot fathom
it is strong like the flood of the river
and i was weak
till i met the punishment

death of my mind
resurrection of my spirit
a broken body
a living heart

i have always chosen love even to the extent of my loss
my own eternal damnation
my inevitable perdition

but all is still fair in love, so they always say it
and how can ever dispute
the words of the wise

unless, otherwise, i deny what i have always been
a heart always full of love
and an empty mind

Lone Bone

and then when we arrive at the prime
after a hard climb only to find nothing but thyme

life tastes like lime and we begin to mime
what to us was all grime and slime

to our face the ill-winds are blown
and what remains is the clown

we feel now that a clone has grown
inside ourselves we find what we own

the seeds have been sown in the throne
of the stone where our lips are sewn

the moan is thrown
& now back to the lone bone

Loneliness

When I turned my
Eyes to the place
Where I heard
Someone calling
The only one I see
Is my own shadow
