Aim

An abundance of wishes,
A brilliance of hope,
Enslaved-
In fortresses of thought.

At some point I this realized:
I’m lost among the moments,
The blissfulness of kisses-
That yesterdays beheld.

I’m dazed amongst the yous-
That used to be my self;
My selves, the many selves
This I feel I wrote before?

But I also have my secrets
My tales of ‘you don’t know’,
‘you wouldn’t ever know”, as well as-
“You shall never know!”

I’m shadows too,
And darkened dare.
Blatant will.
Scorching burn.

Don’t you see the sparks-
Which glide upon my cheek?
Can you truly not them see?

Let me fade: out and away;
I have lingered here for long.

Let me break: out and apart;
Here I’ve stayed for very long.

This journey needs to travel-
To the land of ever new.

This bundle of days back
Shall be thrown in deepest blue.

The seas shall then revolt;
Outburst and overflow…

They shall thrust into the known;
Make it unknown,
“Have never known”.

And I shall drown into the present;
Which is yet to be discovered,
Ever felt.

It’s me I shall uncover and make known
This Life I need to live;

This breeze I have to breathe.
This freedom I shall fight for-
And set free.

For Me


self_deception_by_xetobyte-d60fh8a (2)

If only were you here today-
I’d sing a song right now.

I’d hold a pen and pen away-
My fears, my tears, my joy.

I’d let them go; my many selves
At one I’ll be with all there is.

Were you here this very moment-
I’d lie and I would say:

Yes, I do lie. And so what?
I do that which I desire.

Not a single soul would dare-
To tell me how to walk.

I would jump & dance & bend
I would stare right to the end.

I would tell you if all I wanted-
Was a look upon my eyes.

You would know it if I needed-
Just one smile upon your eyes.

We would know it you and I-
If belonging were our hearts.

Our souls would be protected-
By a certain someone’s shield.

Our hopes & dreams abundant;
We would live through as we live.

We would say it, utter words-
That we felt we need to say.

We would touch just where we felt-
We needed it the most.

We could do all this and more-
Once we cross each other’s path.

If only present were we now;
If only were we not apart.

But you are me and I am you;
Oh we are seeking vicious circles!

You’re in there and I’m here-
But where have we both been?

Oh if only were you here right now…
I’d sing you songs of plenty

Here’s one though;
Just to make it through the day.

One Last Wish


yearning

~

Be my words.
Do make me utter.
I’ve been silent for so long.

No complaints.
Silence is good;
It’s wisdom in disguise.

It’s been very long though,
You see.

Be my tears.
Do shed as I let go.
This draught of dried-up pain;
It has lingered for so long.

No fear of letting go.
It’s good to break apart;
It’s courage. Blatant will.

I might turn into a rock though,
Could I not?

Let me go.
Let me be.
Also take me once you flee.

No hate for being still;
Or any soul or anything.
It’s good to stand alone;
In one place, on your own.

But a mountain, I am not;
Or am I one?

Can I leave this place and be;
What I’ve ever longed to be?
Can I enter world of dreams;
And never be?
Forever free!

Be my silence;
Will you not?

اشک


tears_of_sadness

~

چیزی در چشمانم هست –
اسباب دلنگرانی و تشویش و نا آرامی.
نگاهم از اینجا فرا تر نمی رود،
همین اینجا ی نا آشنا،
محصور این غربت می ماند،
همچون من.

چیزی در دل دارم –
نگاهی، دردی از دامان بی پیکر.
عطری از بوی خوش بودن،
که نتوان بود، که نتوان شد،
در این ساحت،
برای من.

کجا ماندم؟ کجا رفتم که همواره –
به هیچستان هنگامم؟
چرا نیستم در این منزل؟
چه نا مسکون و پر دردم.

خیالم چیست؟ گناهم چیست؟
همین روح بر آشفته؟
همین تکرار بی وقفه –
بر آفاق دلی خسته؟

می گویم:
جیزی در چشمانم هست.
پاسخم این است،
که بلکه خاکی، مژه ای –
در آن رفته.
چیزی نیست.

Parellel

Karma is the name of-
This pleasure in the pain
Codex through a crypt is-
All sufficient, no crusade.

So abundant is the rain;
None of gain if none of pain.
Don’t you feign a soul of Light-
If your darkness you don’t love.

It’s perilous and cursed-
What to you does not belong.
Don’t you dare to touch the fruit-
Which is prone to pain of soul.

Your eyes do ever shine when-
Filled with passion, so divine.
Your look does never lie and-
Yet is bound your loving heart.

It’s sufficient, just a smile;
Yes, It’s ample, just your eyes.
I have been there and I am-
And I will be in your arms.

In yet another lifetime,
Other placelessness of times.
In worlds and epochs far-
Beyond this very now!

We have been there, you & I.
We both know who we have been.
We have seen it, felt its warmth;
We have loved, have seen the light.

My pain was never gone;
Not even for a second.
It was a burden which I carried
For a lifetime’s every moment

A little child was what I was
Filled with fearsome moods of doubt
On the coldness of a night
I would very simply shiver.

I would cry, there would be no one-
To lend a loving arm
I became a stranger to myself, but-
Even the stranger wouldn’t help!

I wondered what it meant;
Who I was, I never knew.
Am I weak, so very weak?
There is something to discover

Weary of my woes,
And my tears I am tonight.
No attention I need now;
Just love, only depart

I need arms that would give love
Oh If only mine would bend!
I shall be all I can be
With no part of me left out

This utter need to cry,
With no tears ever deprived
In dire need of life,
I am right now, we are.

2013 in review – a BIG ‘Thank You’ to all my viewers


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 35 trips to carry that many people.

The Koan


Kusho_Humanity-Healing

~

By my side and in bed
How can you close your eyes?

Of real magic, world of dreams-
How can you that deprive?

Panic more than pain;
Have you ever felt that weight?

Your smiles, your eyes, the lies;
Of seven skies can you that veil?

The thunder ever strikes;
How reliable and real.

Can you be the lightning strike-
If dependent were your eyes?

Can you imagine, if-
Death you were awaiting every day?

Beside the window,
Every single day of Life

People enter, conjure ways-
Into your life, out of your sight

As the many ‘yous’ pass by-
I shall linger here, remain.

I am constant through the realm-
Of ‘nonexistent’, ‘ever fades’

I am here like ‘the change’
That ever flows, that ever fades

To be sinuous and free;
Unlike Poseidon and the trees

I seek one thing; that’s enough;
Solely one thing’s all I need.

Makes you wonder, does it not?
What that ‘one thing’ might’ve been?

It’s a promise to the cosmos;
One commitment to the soul

You shall never, ever know-
Unless you’ve died forever more.

It’s the pain beyond your pleasures;
It’s heavens beneath hell

It’s a promise, wondrous treasures;
Timeless bliss of glowing rays

It’s a present, ever present;
Does appease and fade your pain

Forever you’ll be free;
Of forever, when and where.

Of death, of gruesome fears;
Of shadows, screaming ache.

It’s a maze, your living daze;
It’s a labyrinth of hope.

You flow; never follow.
You seek until you find.

You know, once through the Koan;
You know, when you will know.
