With a scenic landscape,

Yet thee not beholding my eyes;

I dreamt that the skies were blue-

Interim

The room is full of you!-As I came in
And closed the door behind me, all at once
A something in the air, intangible,
Yet stiff with meaning, struck my senses sick!-

His eyes deeming like a rainy cloud,
The chime of his voice joisting in chide,
For on his dying mattress he lay,
Winking and blinking in hayfever like a dying soul in pain,

Deeply folded in my brain,

To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.

Deep In Silence

i stared at all my stars as each one fell to the ground
i opened my mouth to scream but failed to make a single sound
The serpent's tail wrapped all around my body as i fight to breathe
Making all these decisions, contemplating, wondering where they'll all lead

Though the red Flower, not prostrate, only droops,
As we have seen it here from day to day,
From month to month, life passing not away:

And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,
Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.
And from there those that lifted eyes could count

A Song In The Desert

Friend, thou beholdest the lightning? Who has the charge of it,
To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Over, snatch her over, there, and hold her on the pawl.
Loose all sail, and brace your yards aback and full-
Ready jib to pay her off and heave short all!

What was she searching for in the mirror

I am everywhere, I am the darkness, the grief, the sadness.
Once I enter your head, it would be hard for you to get me off of your system.

Here at right of the entrance this bronze head,
Human, superhuman, a bird's round eye,
Everything else withered and mummy-dead.
What great tomb-haunter sweeps the distant sky

We have tested and tasted too much, lover-
Through a chink too wide there comes in no wonder.
But here in the Advent-darkened room
Where the dry black bread and the sugarless tea

I tried reaching out to you but you are no where to be seen, honey
Where are you, I need you to set me free from these nightmares.

Stranger's winds blowing coming towards me very badly,
Giving me always the sense of coming to me,
The feeling is calling to you in every way,

With scarce a thought beyond the hum-drum round,
I did my decent job and earned my pay;
Was averagely happy, I'll be bound.

Had ta'en his last leave of the weeping morn,
Rose-cheeked Adonis hied him to the chase;
Hunting he loved, but love he laughed to scorn.

The Ghost Speaks

A ghost is the freak of a sick man's brain?
Then why do ye start and shiver so?
That's the sob and drip of a leaky drain?
But it sounds like another noise we know!

And held it part of me.

I noticed that I missed stars in the west,
Where its black body cut into the sky.

For their unwavering service,
Thinking for the good causes,
Scarifying ones happiness on others.

For these besiege the latest breath
Of fortune's favoured sons, not me.

That scorched my soul with its burning breath
I clutched my fingers in murderous fashion,
And gathered them close in a grip of death;

While I, least worthy to survive, persist in living on.
She looks at me, I must confess, sometimes with spite and bitterness.

The throat choking feeling and its painful lumps
From the aching heart that shuttered your mood to the fear that after kicks in
It's useless fighting it off,

Yon shelter'd rose, how safe conceal'd!
How quickly blasted when reveal'd!

The thought of never being able to exist again

If existence was possible even after going six feet underground

For through the dream that stilled their breath
Too gauntly glared the coming day.

In a believer's ear?
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.
