An abundance of wishes,
A brilliance of hope,
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



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?

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.

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 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



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.
