  9633.     

Onward To The Next Journey

in that dream
you stared at me as though i am the most
guilty party
that i owe you a lot of explanations

and that i must repay
and give you back
what i had taken

i felt so abused
we danced the tango together
and we made the right steps

if we fell on the dancing floor
it was because
the lights went off
and we did not know about it

you know how i held your hand
it was tight
i was afraid to lose you

when the lights went on
and it was quite long

you were already taken away from me
i did not know who
i thought it was your decision
until you came inside my dream and

told me
i was not so strong and let you go
i have set the years free
i am now outside the prison of my younger years

the tree had borne so many fruits
there is no regret at all if it died at the wrong time
i have no dreams
and i have accepted what those years have given me

until you come again
when my arms are frail when my hands are closed
it is funny
fate is funny, let us just laugh at it

meanwhile i am ready for the next journey
it is not a dream, let us see.

onward....

the isolation finally makes
him thrive
he lets go of all those unnecessary parts
of him
he is pure soul now
traversing
another matrix
looking back from the
thick glass wall
that division that separates him
away from its
origin
he makes the comparison
of these two worlds
now with his ephemeral nature
he finds a new home
there is no language
no culture
he is not yet sure
not having mastered
this recent contention
for one thing
he has no feelings anymore
but only reason
it is like a painting
hanging in the air
glossy in the colors of
illusions

there is no more waking
neither sleeping....

onwards, forward

we who are left
have no choice, we go onward
forward, we have nothing to lose,
except the traces of our
erroneous steps

we who are down are lucky too
for we have no other direction except to go up
we cannot stay here
for what choice have we?

those who are there already
i know, shall find nothing as significant as a mole
at their backs
and so what choice have they?
except to come back
and retrace the better past
the excitement of what once
were

those who are up there
have no other options but to fall
and the higher they got
the painful
the hit, and they get crushed
and we who are still moving
to that direction
must take time to reflect

perhaps there are other ways
not to harm finally
our stupid selves.

  9636.     

opaque

beauty is there in the opaque
things near him,
heart embraces
all of those that are not obvious
to the eyes,
frail humanity opts
for what is there laid
in openess

hurt, the option for
what was not there
clear as pain,
and
bloody, regret comes
bowing,
bad choices, self
inflicts upon self
nature sighs

patience waits
hardness cracks
like shells on
the feet of mankind
