  11577.     

streams of thoughts...

when alive and young
he teaches what should be loved
telling all the reasons why
the heart patiently listens
and with its slow beat
signifies that it understands all
these and that
it knows what compromises are

for the good of the body
and the society
following the code and giving
honor to the family

your sister need not be ashamed of you
or you yourself humiliating your own kind

time sides with the obedient
and life proceeds smoothly like a road without bumps

soon the heart turns dumb
but too honest with its sense

though not drunk but feeling that it has overworked
its veins and crowded its chambers
with dictated feelings of what must and should be
it sighs for rest and now must stop

where is love you ask? it was never here
the heart had been empty since then
no one so true lodges inside it

in its emptiness the heart sinks and lays flat
on the dry land of the chest

flat, moronic in its stares, lost and never knew
what next to do
Reason tries to resuscitate but it never liked
its air, its lips
it dies, but Reason does not really know the
real cause

it justifies: it dies a natural death
just like everyone else.

  11578.     

Stretch A Hand

when i stretch a hand
to touch your confusion
thinking that confusion is coldness
and that my clarity is
a hand of light
i am not really counting some numbers
as though i am rehearsing for a
dance
it just happens and as you call it
just the way it is
it is as spontaneous as rain falling
upon those brown grasses
dying on the mountains.

  11579.     

stricter face

On a summer's day
I look at my face
Into the mirror
Finding Grandpa’s
Stricter face

  11580.     

String, Kite

i complete something today
dawn, there is dawn searching for
the door to morning
and it is closed

i look at an inspiration
it is not really good for me
but it completes me
this morning
the words that lay open and
never shut
to a conclusion
the one that makes me happier
to another day

there is something like a flesh
and it is pressed like a cloth between two iron sheets
there is heat
and it is not burned

there is a string in my hand
that holds a kite
i will cut it now and release
what all i had
to the air

it falls down
helpless to the ground
and no child ever
picks it up today

Monday, the second day of the year
the kite is free and it has no power to fly again in clear skies

separated from the string
nothing is noted to be significant
the way you see it
