Chosen Embrace

Earth gave me
A gentle kiss today
A snowflake
On the cheek
From heaven

To people
Who spread love
All over the world
May a gentle kiss
Forever be given

TBT: Crown (2011)

I've been charming a captivator
He counts my tears at night
Presents himself as innocent
He needs some sign of dignity
And I need a crown of authority

I never said I was a perfect creation
We all have a certain level of appreciation
Find the crack that drains my soul
And lessen my feelings of desperation

I've been teaching a failure
He haunts my dreams at night
Presents himself as a liar
He needs some sign of hope
And I need a cause to elope

I never said I had a perfect explanation
We all have a certain level of hesitation
Find the thorn that pains my heart
And lessen my yearning for gratification

Can We Move On

Can we think this one through
Apparently I am my own enemy
I just don’t know where I got lost
Or where I may find remedy

Can anyone rescue the forgotten
Apparently I can’t do it dependably
I just don’t know where to look
Or where I may find clarity

Can we move on to the distinguished
Apparently I disrespect accidentally
I just don’t know where I am
Or where I may find simplicity

TBT: Gedankenausdruck (2001)

A pure thought
is sometimes magic
A natural tool
for the soul
The highest possible degree
of clarity
Found in history
with simplicity
Formed by a portion
of reality
This unique sculpture
of words
Brings a balance
to the mind-
And peace
to the kind

Embrace The Legacy

I am
All alone

On this island
Of desperation

The edges
Of my soul
Cannot find

Finding a way home
Means enduring

Forgetting about home
Means embracing
The legacy

TBT: It Fell In Hers (1996)

It fell in hers

Relaxed once again

It had fallen long

And now lay flat

She caressed it well

She knew the count

It was well desired

And time to spare

It will drain

For yet another rain

Find A Better Road

If it makes you sick-
We are all
A best kind

A better road-
You have been
Lost before

If it makes you switch-
We are all
A silly mind

A better journey-
You have been
Loved before

Dedicated to “MadeaJ”

TBT: These Pages Are Made Of Silk (2000)

These pages
are made of silk
They write words
only gods can see
Meanings only mages
can understand

These songs
are made of stars
They sing sounds
only the gods can hear
Beauty only angels
can relish

These touches
are made of love
They have feelings
only gods can sense
Vibes only you
can believe

The Tempted

The never tempted find a lonely path
They find comfort in the solace-
There is no delay in finding peace,
Only wondering if there’s a meaning to serenity

The sometimes tempted see the message
They switch values as pain demands-
There is no doubt in planning for tomorrow,
Only wondering if there’s a limit to liberty

The always tempted question everything
They have as many answers as they find problems-
There is no puzzle they can’t solve,
Only wondering if there’s an end to curiosity
