you

i can remember the day
first met with you
i saw the blue deep eyes
that was the day
fall in love with you....

i can feel you around me
when you are not there
you are my oxygen
i can breathe lively here
in love everything is fair......

my heart beats for you
my sleep dreams for you
my sound sing for you
just wanna to say
i love you....

Skin

You send bolts through my skin 
something I was never to 
accomplish with you, when I 
saw you it's like my heart sank 
to my stomach and I was in 
shock my body still my body 
heavy felt like when I moved I 
was about to fall to my knees 
you make me want to get 
inside my brain pick you up and 
take you out pick you one by 
one like a flower because I do 
love you and love you not.

Drugs are bad things

This is a poem and not a song.
It was written to tell you that drugs are wrong.

We see people on the streets every day.
Exhaling and inhaling their life away.

This is a poem and not a song.
It was written to tell you that drugs are wrong.

Families destroyed lives lost.
Those who take drugs will pay the cost.

This is a poem and not a song.
It was written to tell you that drugs are wrong.

If you take drugs daily you probably won't see.
What or who they they may cause you to be.

This is reality and not a song.
wrote to tell you that drugs are wrong.

easter 2014

I watched them drag him away
We all watched  as they dragged him  down the road
I was angry and sad
I couldn’t bear to look upon his bruised face
I remember him too well
He forgave me
I was termed an adulteress 
And was brought before him for judgment
But he shunned my accusers
And he gave me a second chance
And now I am helpless to help
I thought they would protest
They all loved him yesterday
But they wanted blood
 it was like a free show
I turned away, fell on my face and wept
I watched them flog him
I watched them bruise him
And I prayed
I prayed so fervently
That He would take the life of all of them
All of them who betrayed
All the soldiers that so eagerly whipped and mocked
My heart was bitter and heavy
I only prayed he won't suffer
But he suffered
 
Suffered from their betrayal
Suffered because they loved him no more
And as they put the crown of thorns on his head
I cried out
I stood there till he breathe his last breath
Watching him
And when he said "forgive them"
That was all I heard but I felt like he saw me
Through all the shouting and chanting
I felt like he saw only me
I felt like he was speaking to me and I turned away
I rent my clothes unbelieving of his love for these people
I felt the earth quake and heard the stories
I wept wondering what would be left of the earth
But somehow I knew he would come back

At first it was just grief
I refused to believe him dead
But then the rumors came
The messiah has risen
I thought it was the wicked that had come to taunt us
But I heard the story from John
About a free ticket  to heaven
And I took it without a second thought
He is the reason I sing
So let me celebrate Easter
Let me celebrate love, resurrection and grace

Angels Pallet

Welcoming warm Spring breezes,

pervades,teases,glaciers,

angels souring high,

watching ice caps quiver,

water delivered, 

waters fall with reckless a band,

with vibrant goals in command,

inept to describe,

shear beauty that lies,

picturesque beauty thrives,

"painters pallet" pales,

what Mother natures unveils,

enriching our souls,

such grand beauty at her hand,

the yoke that stokes,

the binding bestows,

enshrines the vibrant Valley below. 

Edward 
cop. Part one.

A PLACE CALLED THERE

Not too far from here
Lies the dream terrace I hear
The haven of bliss and solace
A glamorous gem of a place
The end of a weary quest
The trophy in fiery contest

Not too far from here
Sits the crown we lived to dare
Purple pride of an intellectual struggle
The green goal of a ceaseless hustle
A place we once asked where
Still seem so far yet so near.

Not too far from here
Stand the Mentors we hold dear
Men who were not shy to believe
Men who fought fear to achieve
The exclusive pass to the hall of fame
for those whose brand is in their name

Your there may differ from mine
I run my route and you run thine
But run we must run and not turn
We sacrifice pleasure and shun fun
Because, not too very far from here
Is a place called there.

Dare to get there.

spring begining's

Spring time is near when the dawning of sun light beacons upon the horizon and the butterflies roam throughout the sky,
among sun shine rays piercing through tender vibrant flowers
as their journey to blossom began's, 
When the days linger into nights transforming the skies into shimmering stars of light, illuminating the golden specks of sand as  sprinkling ocean waves crash against  its grain,
while ripples of white water recede back into the depths of the sea,
Transcending reflections of the magnificent lights shimmering from the crisp stary sky
 AS springs just upon us.

Under the Cross

A conscious effort
by the constrained
creates nothing.

Devoid of inspiration,
enraged egotists find 
fault in selfless pursuit of
glory.

Hampered by the
infancy of others,
jettisoned memories of
ketamine disassociation allow
lies to fester.

Myopic interludes of 
nihilistic pleasure
only serve to
profundicate the 
questionably sane 
revolver in my hands
sublime speech on world peace.

There is no sense left
under the cross.
Violins are broken,
weapons formed while
xylophone keys shatter
Yale’s prestige as king of the
zoo.

Water makes me sick

I'm tired of people that are healthy
Even fat people can be stealthy
You mays well just get outta town
If you don't, I might kill you, make you drown
If only I could put on a pair of thongs
I would go to golden corral and pick up food with the tongs
Not my hand
If I go out to eat and they offer me a water
I might go crazy and start to slaughter
Don't ever offer me anything free and charge me for it
You can only do that if i'm wearing my favorite outfit
Everyone's starting to tick me off
Just leave me alone I want to go play golf
It's so intense
Just so you know though
Water makes me sick
So if you offer, you might get your butt kicked
I'm a big guy that enjoys pop
so please no more water, just stop

Spring Wing

Early in the morning 
The sun will rise
April showers 
Will bring all the flowers  
The flowers will start to bloom
They will bloom and go wowed 
They won’t scatter because of that April shower

beneath MY breath

hey look stop regreting and start worrying fr ua grave i say
lets just worry and forget about guns and plant all roses..
TO ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE & WHO DON”T
TO ALL THOSE WHO SEE & WHO DON’’T
TO ALL THOSE WHO LISTEN & WHO DON’’T
TO ALL THERE & ALL HERE I HAVE A FEW WORDS TO SAY
LIFE IS A BOOK WHICH is WRITTEN BY ALMIGHTY AS WE ALL KNOW
BUT ALL WE KNOW & ALL WE DON”T IS ALL DIFFERENT
THE SUN RISES EVERYDAY FOR THE LOVE OF EARTH
THE SKY STANDS ALL THERE WITH NO STANDS & NO PILLARS
IT HOLDS A FAMILY OF STARS ALL TOGETHER
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT
NOBODY EVER HAS DISCOVERED THE SECRET BEHIND STARS
ALL WE ARE BUSY IN RUNNING INSANE,CRYING FOR THE UNENDING DESIRES
DEFENDING OUR GOOD & BAD
BLAMING OTHERS,HOLDING A GRUDGE
TALKING OF PATRIOTISM,ACTING AS RACISTS
DIFFERENTATING & DISCRAMINATING
BEING  PRIEST’S TO WORLD & ACTING AS THUGS AT WHOLE
I LOVE THE WAY I’M ,THE WAY YOU ARE
I DON’T WANT TO BE WHO YOU ARE & HOW YOU ARE
THE SAME I EXPECT FROM YOU ALL.
IT’S INSANE WORRYING ABOUT THINGS WHICH ARE ALL OUT OF OUR CONTROL
THE BEST THING IS TO LIVE AND LET LIVE AS IT IS A BELIEF OF ALL WISE MEN
LIVE GREEN
LOVE ALL
RESPECT & YOU WILL GET IT ALL
ELSE YOU GONNA GET A FALL
THERE’Z NO FUN IN RUNNING ALL ALONE
WALK HOLDING SOME HAND,THE JOURNEY WILL B ALL BETTER
THERE’Z NO GOOD IN BUILDING THE WALLS ALL OVER
BUILD SOME BRIDGES ALL HERE & ALL THERE,AS IT WILL GET YOU NEAR& NEAR.
ITS WHEN THERE WILL BE NO FEAR & TEAR.
#L 4 ALL#HATE 4 NONE#
and that is all i feel beneath my breath.

Jesus our only hope

Where is the shelter for thy drowning heart
Refuge from the stromy winds
That strive to havoc thy life and depart

Where is rest from the unceasing pain
When all thy strength has ceased 
And all thine efforts ends up in vain

When darkness surrounds thee
And there is no way ahead to see
When thy hopes are wrecked 
Leaving thy souls out of deck

Where do thyself go??
Lo,there stands a man with arms open wide 
"all ye people with burden and heavy laden come unto me I will give you rest" says he
Where there is peace on his side 

O what comforting father is he 
A light in the darkness
For thine eye to see

Place thy life on thee 
For he is God, 
For thou'st want him to be

The loving cage

The sheen is off the gardens ,so has the dullness befallen, while summer's may come and go, the stars may appear and disappear, I may turn grey and white ,you may cease to fascinate any longer, but be thankful to the seeds sown in the youthful summer, when others were busy in making castles of gold and diamond, you choose love, now the autumn has set in , things may wither to nothingness, but don't you worry my darling, love has no age.......

BORN IN APRIL

Yes! It is April again
When the rain descends heavily
Over our land and plants 
Every fourth month of the year
I remember the day I was born
And every year in April
I get closer to my grave
Every time in April I remember
How fast the clock ticks
And every year in April
I write my success story
For my days are numbered
When a person fools me
Sometimes it help cools me
For in April I was born

On the spot poem 6

The wind is strong 
The noise is loud
The thunder clapps
Within the clouds.

Rain starts to pour
Hail aswell
The sun will shine again
But not yet i can tell.

The coldness is chilling
Sends shivers through your bones
Nights like these
Who wants to be alone.

My kids

My house is quiet,
kids have gone to sleep.
Don't want to make a sound,
as time to myself is now a treat.

I can hear my clock ticking,
the t.v playing music.
My fridge is also grunting,
my phone i will not use it.

As much as i love,
all three kids of mine.
There all ganging up on me,
But these walls i will not climb.

It's three against one,
and that's not really fair.
I'm waiting for the day,
when i get my first grey hair.

sunset

Eyes wide open gazing at the sea
looking at the time it's nearly three.

   Your eyes start to water as the times getting older
   winds picking up as the breeze gets colder.

  Orange yellow red are the colors you see
  mind goes blank as you suddenly feel free.

A giant round ball begins to float down below
not to fast but really really slow.

   The last little bit sits and waits
   thats when you know the times getting late.

on the spot 3

The day was great
sunshine no rain
calm and a tad boring
but then my day became.

hectic as all the rest
kids n dinner
the nights calm and not cold
that's always a winner.

distracted but want to do
what i said i was gonna do
write an on the spot poem
and i'm gonna see it through.

so sorry if this one's 
a bit silly and lame
i will do my best from now on
and make up a better day.

you are my dream

I cried for him when he was unaware of it
Wondered why life is so upsetting me
Just thinking about him
Makes my heart wonder
Butterflies in my tummy
When I still think of him
His name is on my lips
And I m wondering does he even remember my name?
I don’t have an answer for my heart
But someday I have to answer
The fear is rushing in my veins
Not my mistake of not knowing what is love
If love is one sided
Then I pray that it happens to none
And if it’s beautiful feeling
Then I pray it should happen to everyone
I m confused
What is love?
May be its just feeling
Which I can never express
Hoping for him to understand
My unspoken words
And with this last line
Yes! My words which I can never speak
So for now I try to forget the past
And devote my emotions to present
I will make sure it lasts
With passion so wide and a love so vast
Pain and sadness will be things of the past

The rain

 The world what a big place so enjoyable and full of choices 
I don't hate you I rather just enlighten you on a few things 
when you decided to get rid of your sweet baby girl still fresh inside the womb 
she wanted to see what the world was like 

Mom I didn't want to go I wanted to experience the difficulty and the beauty of the world my first kiss my first date the idea of me one day giving life but it was snatched I know this was the hardest decision that was made the seed was forced inside you by a disgusting human being who doesn't see the sweet essence of a women he saw breast and a vagina and a frighten woman 

I don't hate you for not loving something that wasn't loved in the process of intercourse I don't blame you I have looked for peace within myself I have searched for forgiveness and I give it to you my dear holder not mother but holder of child 

I forgive you 
love... what name I decided to call myself when you made your choice April

KRISTINA LUGN, YOU: Two Sonnets

KRISTINA LUGN, YOU…: Two Sonnets
Dr. Manoranjan Das
One
You’re the  seeker of liberation with ultimate
Aim through  your own creation where  the everlasting
Happiness is nursed by you for moderating
The life’s dogma  and harmony ; that’s accurate.
Kristina Lugn, , ah! Your good deeds are attached 
With needs of men through the real essence 
Of pure knowledge that rowed to consequence.
Here’s your aspiration with realization ; that’s set...

Your powerful pen  takes out the views of your mind,
To promote the society where the flux
Of your pure experience is mingled , to stand 
Beside the object of realities as a box
Of virtues ; here significantful project
Of self identity is for intuitive effect…

Two
With the conscious will and affirmative approach,
You ‘ve the self evidence  with identity , at all;
And your means of cognition is to attach
For validity to establish love, over all.

Your thought is waved to black and white, owing
To ooze into the mind of men which’s  ontological;
Here your manifesto is  sparked for mankind, viewing
With the virtues ; not in epistemological....

Kristina Lugn, you have the  higher self-attitude
For society’s positiveness, on the whole
Here  awareness and consciousness, basing on a route,
Are , ah! Activated through your distinctive role.

Ah! Kristina Lugn, you are the  horizon of love;
And you aptly cultivate uniqueness that you have

I missed one day
Even though i said 
I would submit a poem
Everyday from then

Having a night without mymy kids
Time well needed the break is due
Even though i love them
But needed some hours if only a few. 

So theres another little poem
Ive just made up
Until next time 
Good bye and good luck.

flower

When can I meet you again?
Will it be in spring when your petals are recovered?
Will it be in Summer when you're surrounded by sunlight?
I've been and will continue waiting forever under shadow.
I,
Watched you blossom quietly,
Bore the pain of withering with you,
Time after time, loop following loop
Forget me as much as you please,
It does not matter as long as I am still here.
I miss you....
