terrene N heaven

dissolved in déjà vu
looking all around for you…

is everything really over rated?
is the cliché really under stated?

speed of thoughts
velocity of memories…

on some perfectly clear days
with a mind that’s sane
in all those usual ways
doing the daily mundane

the grey of the nerves
still find some space to,
execute teleportation
liquefy the boundaries of time
effect disintegration
disband the sense of realities


Bard Arnold hauntingly croons,…. (in my headphones)

“I'm here without you baby,
But you're still on my lonely mindI think about you baby,
And I dream about you all the time…”

the big round gold disc
does another 6 to 6, bids me bye…
now I can see a few “diamonds in the sky”

through my cubicle window
cannot feel that purple-pink evening wind
Calendar reminds me of the continuing grind
In complete daze
In all that haze
I know, am caught in the undertow…

...the wait

Expansive night,
Prolonged a few more paces

Moonlit clouds,
Strained a few more rays…

Mendicant heart,
Wandered a few more woods…

Without you, hope, seems just like a word
Have longed so long, the thirst is all gone

My mornings needed your evenings
My promises needed your smiles
My sleep needed your arms

With my inebriation
In my un-drunk intoxication
I need it this way
No more words to say

I do live without you
It isn’t living though

Made these wishes,
Lifetime ago…

Picked up a few paths from your feet
Untied a few threads from your wool

Looked all around
Couldn’t get you off my mind

Not here with me,
So I had to come,
If only to know,
If only to find

Would you stop the moon from moving?
Would you stop the clock from ticking?

It’s just tonight,
There wouldn’t be another daylight…

lets talk

Let me confess, lets talk,
Between you and me,
It’s hard to go
by the instincts
by the drive
its hard to know
when to feel
how to choose
what to do

Let me talk, make you confess
Between me and you
What do you think
What do you feel
Did you choose

These times don’t fade
These tides don’t break
The moon never phases
Spinning never stops
Shining never pales


I wish I would have never slept
I wish I would have stayed asleep
