Nine Paintings
This is a portrait of a dying plant, It stands in agony, shrivelled; A drought consumed its dreams, And wayside it lay, no one to tend, On soil red, ground for a year barren. We know not who she was, But her beauty persists like a childhood memory; Her lips...

Evermore
There is now, And this is my evermore. The clocks remain still, And the hands that move them have no will. There's a breeze that blows from the south-west, The homeless set their beds on bus-stop benches, And the last bus passes by- no one to get out or in-...

Write me a eulogy when I am no more
Write me a eulogy when I am no more. Write me a eulogy when I am no more, Read it aloud to yourself, my l'amour. Write me a eulogy when I am no more, Tear it up and scatter it with the winds, Let me be unknown, let me be evermore. Write me a eulogy when I a...

Infinity
A hundred years of Solitude, A lifetime of Silences, A forever that outlasts itself, A time immeasurable and immense. To hold the world in the palm of your hands, To count the breaths as if to measure the winds, To see the world in three steps and no more, ...

Silences
There are no words, Only silences. There are dreams, That live till the memory fails. There is love, A memory written in your cursive. There is the nothing, A lifetime without silences. There is I, Upright, and alone. There is hope, That lingers as a long l...

Tonight
Tonight, can we forget our politics, Can we forget the different things we believe in, the Gods we worship and don't. Tonight, can we feel ourselves to be human, Can we let silence dance and tickle our senses a bit? Tonight, can we have a moment of quiet on...

Infinity
To hold the world in the palm of your hand, To see tomorrow as a dream, To wake up to find yourself as infinity, To be I, To be you, To be. Belief lasts, as long as you choose to, And the world is all you believe it to be. Life's but a waking dream, Infinit...

Humanity
What remains is the first light through the storm clouds, And a heavy sigh of an old lady with ten sons Who are nowhere, but a daughter who left her husband. Plunder, and the world shifts, dried blood in the sands Are swept around in swirls of remorseful hi...

Silences
Silences. The moment as the page turns, And awaits a-lay; The breath in abeyance, The verse to be sung, lingers in suspense; Silence. Yours. And mine. As the shimmer in your eyes, In the looking-glass, as you smile. When you let the hug linger, Squeeze in c...
