  9477.     

nameless in the history of time

if you think that we understand
our suffering
then you are absolutely wrong

our brains float and we do not know
what make it so

our rooms fly away and we do not see
their wings
our worlds fall and crash
and we feel
the impact

we struggle

we like to take our eyes
pluck them from
their sockets
so that we can see the world
outside our
from our own
blindness

we have blackouts

sometimes all our lines are cut
from our pulsating network
of veins

our hearts are constantly
quashed
broken

we devise poetry
to explain all these
and what we have
are mere glimpses
of our
opaque universe

sometimes flashes of images
like stars
offer an explanation

they glitter and what we have
is simply
wonder

we walk our nights
with our eyes fixed
upon those stars

the rocks along the way
make us stumble
we have bruises
we suffer all day

time will tell
if our self proclaimed
greatness
can be a matter
of justice

or perhaps it is love's way
of loving
us
we who are crushed
in pain
and nameless
in the history of time

  9478.     

namelessly

my gaze is lovely
to love it is rooted

it is shy, it gazes when
the beloved is not looking

it is always
unfulfilled, it is always as sad

as a shy look, a stolen glimpse
of the face of my only god

something stupid
really


i do not fear it
i do not touch it


it is as lovely as desire
an inch away from those lips

breath inside a breath
namelessly

  9479.     

naming names.....

i wonder if you feel stuck sometimes,
claustrophobic inside a drum where the exit and entrance are all the same,
well covered, and you are nothing but that stuff inside waiting for the
right opener,
you are sealed,
and isolated.

you do not remember breathing, do you?
you haven't felt air, and you cannot even tell if it is fresh or stale


you too do not remember having thought of someone other than yourself,
you are too compressed and there is no space for growing
hair or nails or
whatever,

i felt this, and it was a feeling that stuck with me for a long number of years, such that i think that it is but a normal and
natural occurrence and for such an ignorance,

i never thought that it is worth mentioning or
complaining at all,
that having air is not a right,
that having space is not demandable,
that complaining is irritating to the ears,
and that being in such a
worst state, is -but a common situation in the world,

until you
learn that there is something wrong,
really wrong that you can bet
your life on it,
that if you cannot get it
then it is better that you
kill or get killed

two options only,
you die or you live
nothing in between,

how stupid can i be,
it is just recently that i know this,

and i thank you,
for letting me out,
and making me see that i am not
supposed to be in that drum
and that someone has answer
for the wrongs
that were intentionally
done.

let me
let me now,
name names.

  9480.     

Narcissism

it is a way
of getting intimate
with yourself

holy cow!

the church is ready
to excommunicate

and society ostracizes
you for that.
