On Taking Chances

Eyes in delirium -  taking a chance
There is still time - making it count
Making it count - taking a chance
My eyes drunk - my eyes are dark,

My hands are twirling, my feet are bleeding
I'm good in running, I'm better in speeding
I can do a round or take a beating
But I'm bad in stalling, worse in still sitting.

So eyes in delirium, muscles in trance
Feet in swirling, hands in a trance
Pasts thrown in the fire - taking a chance
Future is not written yet - taking a stance.

In Your Sleep

Last night when you sank in sleep as deep as in a womb
My mental wings took me to you - in your close-curtained room.

You slept and everything was quiet - that I there no one knew
But Night benign had blown me there so I watch over you.
I slid my fleshless fingers on the line your eyelids drew
And my fingertips caressed them in their transparent dew;

And my arms - wings of shadow were wrapping you in tight
So the nightmares have no place to nestle in your mind;
My body - built out of smoke and all colors of the Dawn,
Was covering you with it's outline like a with a seamless shawl,
So cold and frost can't came to you when I was there thrown.

I don't think you would remember that I was there with you
Until it was Dawn's turn to come - Night went and I did too...
But in the mirror if you look when your eyes are closed
You'll see the memory of my lips - where I kissed them soft.

I don't think you would remember my hair on your face
But if you look upon your pillow you will see there nest
A ghost of color, shade of light, a nuance of tear shed,
Which, when I had to go, my heart with much regret
Beamed forth for you, because so much it wanted to be left -

Flashback of touch, recall of lull, remembrance of embrace
That was shared, laid upon you, and printed in the space.

60 Seconds


60 seconds on the run 60 seconds slow turn 60 seconds colors roll 60 seconds taking toll
60 seconds going down 60 seconds she does pound 60 seconds stalling roses 60 seconds falling on it
60 seconds slow run 6o seconds taking turns 60 seconds on the rise 60 seconds wild surprise
60 seconds almost painful 60 seconds heavy smelting 60 seconds are in touch 60 seconds very such

60 seconds are unfolding 60 seconds with no talking 60 seconds are on bay 60 seconds in derail
60 seconds are to go through 60 seconds 60 to unroll to 60 seconds are in mix 60 seconds play amiss
60 seconds laden shocking 60 seconds are not joking 60 seconds in twist 60 seconds not to miss
60 seconds are in play 60 seconds turned and faced 60 seconds trancing trance 60 seconds dancing dance

No Words


Making count with no words
Making silence with no reverse
Making time with no words
Making and unmaking such

Tense and grave the time to be
With no words I tend to see
Making with no words in making
Taking with no words in taking

Making with no words to play
Playing with no words to say
Making meaning with no words
Make ME count with no words.

Love - a broken Apple with golden hues
That changes everything it touches
With nuances and glisters and untold whispers
Hard and diamond and breakable like crystal
Heavy and laden, light, joyful and bristling
Ranting and running and crying and kissing
Convulsing and panting and losing it's breath
Up on the Road with no visible End
Sneaking and trotting and galloping wild
Twisting and turning in another delight
Sweet and so Tender and Gruff and so Rough
Being a Bender is being in Love.

Love like a ball is rolling away
And like a water is dripping all day
Like hot ashes burning, caressing like steel,
Melts on your tongue like a candy and steal
Everything else from your mind in a torrents
And in landslide is happily rolling
Crying in shade and coming to bloom
Making storms rage in oceans in one room
Begging attention, turning away
Don't even mention how long it's to stay
Thrives in a challenge, dies in a trap
Love is a rascal, but she allright.

This Be It

This be the Time, the Day, the Year
When in my mind you will appear
When in my hands you stop your run
When in your hands I take a turn.

This be the Place, the Room, the Planet
When it is all with you surrounded
When on my skin your skin is floating
When my watch stops but I am rolling.

This be the Mind, the Heart, the Feeling
That is to be and not be kneeling
That is to go and not be stopping
That is to hold but not be roping.

This be the Verse, the Word, the Line
I tell it all to you and you know why?
Because this be the time of Life
To take a Touch and make it  Rife.

The Moving Sands Of You

Making a raft - with twisted fingers in one another -
Is not hard when I know that you are going to be on it,
Heavy like a stone and light like a feather, like a moan
That floats in the night  and falls ephemerally over the sand,

Imperceptible and unrelenting like a force of nature,
The force of nature that it is it's to fall - by nature
Like breathing  - so easy that one misses it's vitality,
Like movement - so effective one thinks it's just a banality

The most important things remain hidden in their simplicity -
The most loaded and the most central with the most validity,
Like a precious tear in the corner on the eye takes a finality
If the eye of one who doesn't take a tear as formality.

The most important things are in the raft that I make
With my hands that is meant to be only yours to take -
Where the times are running out sand out of time
And in the moving sands of you I'm forgetting who I am.

Don't Be Sad

Don't be sad that this night went without seeing me
I shall have in the nape on my wildest dreams
Don't regret that the day is here and I'm away -
The most far you are most near in my inner self.

Don't be sad that my body is somewhere else -
Every moment when it exists it's having you in it.
Don't regret that time is running faster that we can -
The time would never take away what the mind can build.

Don't be sad that I'll have my eyes closed by me
And I will sleep on my own shoulder stilled -
This night through me untamed mestengos speed
And every hoof is grafting you in me.

The Hourglass

The hourglass is calling the coming of the Dawn
Heavy my body is rolling rolling like a Stone
Rolling like a sandstorm rolling in a roll
Terrible and ancient, in a death-like Toll.

The hourglass is rolling, biting away
The time I am losing, the time when with me you stay
Time through me is running, between my hands
Sandy grains are running and from you me ban.

The hourglass is rolling, time through my body throbs,
Running slow and heavy like it wants to stop,
Like it wants to stop and leave me here to rest
With you in my dreams, with you in my hands.

The hourglass is rolling...;"Give me back my sand!"
My skins so is screaming and so does my mind
My being is so arching as to stop the run
Of the time so ruthless and the sand to stun...

But the hourglass is rolling and so I must obey
The time with eating teeth that bids you on your way
And I feel the time running through my soul
And my souls is running away in sandy roll.

For what is my soul without you - cactus in the sand,
Desert that provides nor nourishment nor life,
Wind that takes away but never nothing gives...
The hourglass is rolling...my soul with it leaves...

 Memories

Today I live on memories alone -
Disjointed disconnected pieces
Of touch, looks, smiles - that in the air hang
In front of me and glisten in the sun
Like in a dream - non-dream,
And carry certain magic in their folds -
Like gleaming pearls from a broken necklace
Spilled in the sand, half-hidden and chaotic,
Bright memories - like momentary shots
Taken at random angles and dim light
For moment blinding and the vanishing again,
Bright threads from non-existent fabric -
Lips and knees and shoulders, hair falling,
Wrapped things and fingers sunken deep,
Closed eyes and muscles tightened to whip,
Me opening my eyes and seeing you...

I live on memories today
Reading in the blue screen over which
The shots are fired - like to make a point
Or rather points - highlight the steps to you
So I can take today and make it through.

A Missing Sonnet

I miss you to pain and distraction
Toppling my day with mad actions
I miss you to stupor and rapture
And my mind is ready to fracture

I miss you and my day is blank
I miss you to agony stark
I miss you and my sky is dark
In your absence my stars do not spark

I miss you to hate and destruction
I miss you and I hardly can function
I miss you to soul cruel eruption
I miss you to disease and consumption.

Such pain is this terrible missing
That it can be cured only with kissing.

Seducement

You do seduce me every time again
With your smile that dances on your lips
Like quicksilver moving, bright and fast
Beguiling, flickering and passing like fish
In the crystal clear surface of your face
Beauteous and seducing me again...

And your eyelids so tender and so soft
With their fragile line waving so
Imperceptibly seduces me with
Their perfect shape and perfect texture...

I wonder if you realize how much
Your fingernails seduce me - gently placed
As coral jewels to accent your fingertips
Strait and long, with slightly oblong edges -
Pale orchids that my lips long to caress...

Time and time and time and time again
You do seduce me with such little things
Your eyes induce my heart to heavy sink
And when it seems I can't take anymore
Your hands-waves sweep tidal on my shore.

I Do

I love you sitting and I love you standing
I love you starting and I love you ending
I love you smiling and I love you sore
I love you laughing and I love you bored

I love your smile and I love your frown
I love your talking and love your moan
I love your being and I love your mind
I love your body and i love your hands

I found all of this to be desired
I found all of this to be admired
I found all of this to be exciting
I found all of this to be romantic

Like a shell on the seashore stranded
Like a memory that's not to be reminded
Like a melody that my ears caresses
Like the way you drive me to excesses.

Crying Night

My hands are howling each other to sleep
Like baby wolves who in the night are steeped
Empty and desperate and for your skin again
Like orphans hug each other to avert the pain
Of being lonely, lonesome, all alone
With no place to go and call it home
With nothing but themselves to hug to sleep
My hands are screaming and the Night with them weeps.

The darkness seems double dark when it's crying
That I don't know where to try hiding
Those hands so desperate and their sobs
So they don't wake the stars and make them mourn -
What can make their sorrow subside
When even Darkness was to be moved to cry,
What can make their sadness more constrained
When even Night with them is to lament?

I look in horror at my bewailing hands
And all all want is for this night to end.

Slow Hell

I hate the days when I can't be with you
And time slows down to hurting me anew
Days of farce in which masks are growing
Mute violence and self-remorse are stowing.

I hate my time when to see you I can't
And even light that is my dear friend
Then hurts my eyes and make them to lament
Your absence and my present that is woe is spent.

I hate myself when I cannot be seen by you -
With self-hatred I am so imbued
I'm no good anything to give or take
My soul is so dried up it's in flakes.

It's slow hell - one that I hate to face
When I can't see you nor can you embrace
From all the Hells I had seen in my life
Those days without you are the most harsh.

 On Dancing and Trancing

Let me hold you in my hands a minute more, my love
Let me kiss you one more time while the night is new,
Let me swirl you one more time and have my hands on you,
Let me catch you one more time when the turn has turned.

Let me one more moment have in this seductive dream -
Let me one more touch to have that in my soul would gleam -
So I make my day to Count and may night to Mean,
So I have one thing to want and one dream on which to lean.

Let me swirl you one more time as long the dance keep going,
Let me have you in my soul as the time keeps rowing,
Let me touch you one more time - the touch means so much,
Let me stand with you in trance while the trance is such.

You Turn Me On
Lightning Image 2009011670

Like a lightning tears the night sky in two opening it in the middle
The two halves stark in their roughness  and each one an open riddle
And the sky groans and moans in agony torn- we call it "thunder"-
It rhymes with "under", /and it's properly called that, for it comes from "under"/

Under time and under space - it's under the belly of the Cosmos that itself manifests
In nature - that is nature for all times and spaces - and it's also a race
Between Coming and Ending and Starting and Bending between Me and You
A race in the tube on Life - so you Turn me On like a Lightning and break me in two

You turn me on so with a bang and a struggle and a strike to stake whatever it takes -
So light me a Lightning and break me a Break and strike me a stake- whatever it takes
For the Sky to break - with a Cosmic Break, a twisting and turning and burning Break
This is what makes the circle go round, and nature turn round, in pleasure and ache...

You turn me so on ...  You light me a Lightning...You brake me a Brake...  You take me a Take...
Again and Again...as the wheel turns on...no rest no pause, breaking in million pieces of Dawn...
Tearing upon itself Time, convulsing Cosmos, Space spasming it Two, Running to...where to...
Thundering Nature knows best - there is no time to rest... that's why the Sky tears in two.

Do me a Do!

"I Wonder How Much is Hidden and How Much Is in the Open"

Being Open like a Peach - in it's perfect halves,
Being Open like a Womb - to bring forth Life,
Being Open like a Grave - to take in what had Pass
Being Open like a Virgin on her wedding night -

Nature has ways to open and ways to shut,
All of them are necessary, some of them can hurt,
All of them are in the open - Nature is not shy -
She does only what she has to do - just like you and I.

Open hands and open hearts, open eyes and ears -
To have Life in your hands they have to open here,
Open like the nature is - open doesn't lie -
Open are my words to you, open like my thighs,

Open are my eyes to you - so I can really See You,
Open are my lips to you - in me I can Seal you
Open are my ears too - so I hear your Meaning,
Open are my words to you - and with Senses brimming.

Part of Your Night

If I cannot be part of your day - make me a part of your night
And I'll hide in some old cupboard - like a mouse from the light
I'll be quiet, and I'll be still - all I want is you to see.
All I want is to have a look  at your face while you dream -
And this is such a sweet delight and a reward for me!

Or I'll will sit on the mantelpiece - like some silent fly -
And no one will see or hear me 'cause I'll wont even sigh -
But I will nail my eyes on you and caress you with my looks
Being so hard stuck in you - like with a thousand hooks -
So I can't wash myself away with the force of a thousand brooks.

If I cannot be a part of your day -make me a part of your night
I'll have every hour I can spare pressing myself on you tight
I'll have every moment I can steal  looking at your bedside -
Turn me in your sheet if there is no way to have me otherwise...
If I cannot be part of your day, dream me a part of your night.

Do Me A Solid

Do me a solid, don't do me a favor,
Do me a solid, I'm not a beggar.
Do me a solid -  touch me a touch -
But the touch to be real, I want as much.

Do me a solid - rage me a rage,
Show me a true self, don't stage me a stage
Do me a solid - trail me a trail,
Tell me a story, don't sell me a tale.

Do me a solid - show me your face
Don't pose me a mask, or maze me a maze,
Do me a solid - I can take a rake
But for my life I can't take a fake.

So do me a solid - when being with me
Be who you are and who want to be
Do what you want and do it well -
Do me a solid - don't hide in a shell.

Do me a solid - open and wild,
Be catastrophic, climatic, not filed
Do me a solid - untamed and frank
Bursting in colors, and never blank.

Do me a solid - do me a do
Raw in emotion, never subdued
Do me a solid - beam me a beam -
Light and spasmotic, authentic within.
