    A Note to Self: August 18th

    Going by, day by day;each, inescapably, does end.I meet that bittersweet dismay,& shake despondency — my friend,For I’m a man of dust & clay.Of shattered dreams & hopes misspent.Of hoping, dreaming, must I pay,or of my limits stay contend,But choose I pave my frontiers way,& choose I break yet to transcend.For much as ache they […]

    The Glory of Icarus – I

    Fly not too high, too close to sun;You know you are my only son.Remember that neither you are— nor shall you be,as near & far as Love can be;light years from sea,light years from sun.My Son, you are… my only one. But one you are — of bones & blood.My son, alone, you are no […]

    Beating to the End

    Being upon my timely yore,Laid back, then, one lovely lore,Which if known would obscureEvery chance of ill & cure.But does deeply rest in clay,& in hearts through night & day. Held through the walls of wombTo the biding halls of tomb.& beating at the edge of craze;reaching, leaving, stops & ways.Beating at the shores of […]

    Upon Bangor Mountain

    There is a voice that I can not deny,Coloured into the hues of a lullaby.Denying everything;All the joys and the nothings,all the symphonies of the passers-by. There is a voice that shall not die —Whispers into each goodbye,screaming hellosunto a starless sky of blues.Uttering breeze of a bashful muse.Then unto the doves of a budtime […]

    A Conversation Within

    Have my way, transcending into me, A whimsy, must we stay dreadfully — obscure into an esoteric song, a prayer to a lonesome sea That pours out of a forlorn — forlorn shore, That pours out of a secret— secret door Into thine myriad spirit, thine dreary sea, Into thine forgetfulness, thine secret that I be. I […]

    Allegory

    O’ I’d leave you at a standstill; Fatherless — orphaned at infanthood. I’d leave you — not at will; Severed, estranged,  misunderstood, In a life, you won’t fulfill. & even if you would, they would do you no good. O’ my son if I could unbear you then I would, & leave you — ink […]

    The purpose of Life

    To stay, while searching for home. To roam the streets of intricacies, & the alleys of intimacies, & never lose home, while losing way. To find, The ones within yourself. To embrace & to kiss each insurmountable distance, & to conjure subsistence out of void. To face the demons, you avoid. While pack all what […]

    The Happy Hour

    Cease not to seize the happy hour passing by; Those, who drench all the marrow of today, own tomorrow. Sail deep, until Life’s own horizon turn nigh. Sigh every breath of death — each unending “Goodbye” & breathe the birth of each “Hello” — each new tomorrow. Cease not to seize the happy hour passing […]

    I shall meet you

    Faraway, From those times I used to love; From the times I used to laugh, & those lonely nights where all the best of yesterdays laid in tomorrows. & where joy became a myth; an unspoken secret. There — Faraway, I shall meet you. Faraway, From the noises, From the noisy rhymes & noisy times […]

    Song of a Wanderer

    Tell me the reasons why; my life is just a sigh within thy breath. Tell me the reasons why; I can no longer die If it’s thee I miss. I can no longer kiss the watchful moon goodbye. I can no longer hug The sleepy sun passing by. Tell me a reason why; I can […]
