FEELINGS

FEELINGS


Feelings,
Masters of my destiny
Lords of my life
Strength of my dreams
Instigators of my actions

Burning fire you are 
Consuming my whole 
Being:
My heart
My mind 
My soul
My spirit,  
As you relentlessly
Demand: 
To be conceived
To be formulated 
To be understood
To be expressed!

A Herculean task it is,
I swear, 
Such an enterprise,
For how one could ever
Constrain, you, the unconstrained 
And mold you into:
Phonemes
Syllables
Words
Phrases
Sentences 
And still retain 
Your explosive 
Dynamism?
 
No language exists,
So vast
So deep
So accurate
So supple 
As to pay justice,
To your intensity
To your desire
To your beauty
To your love!

Thus, having no
Alternative, 
I turn to the only language
There is,
The one that the 
Cosmos speaks,
And
The universe alone
Comprehends:
The language of 
Harmony,
That we humans 
POETRY name
BUT 
Even then 
To describe you
I AM UNABLE!

THIRST FOR LOVE



My thirst for undying love I wished to quench 
Drinking from the source of your enviable lips  
Few droplets of nectar my soul was able to sip
That ample were though my craving to eclipse!

Pondering

As I ponder my weak bladder, you see.
I travel around the corner from thee.
Be careful if around the corner you go.
Please for your sake, watch for yellow snow.

Sensationalism or Journalism

(Another childhood or teen years poem.)

Newsprint small talk
in Mediocrity's lead pot
rustles and gossips while,
splashed spectacularly across
the speckled page of
Society's intellect,
a murder making column one
hides the hushed massacre
of minds.

I AM CHARLIE-JE SUIS CHARLIE



Fall snow fall,
Over the moaning Paris’ ground,
Let your descending snowflakes a 
Healing blanket for the city
To weave
And
Charlie’s slaughtered cartoonists 
To enshroud!

SOUL EYES




As my eyes, with age, are losing their sight

And able I am not, clearly, anything to see 
 
My soul’s eyes, in wonder, are opening wide 

Praying, my Lord, a glimpse to get of Thee!

Possible it is all you wish to achieve

LIFE



A mighty river life is,
Where 
The powerful waters of
Rushing feelings, 
Roaring emotions  
And 
Thunderous ideas flow,
That 
In wonder its source has
And 
Its estuary in awe!

DESTINY AND I




Lost,

At a crossroad of my life,

Destiny I met

Smiling, she inquired where I was
 
Heading to 

“I am waiting for you to tell me.”

Was my reply!

SEED OF CONCERN



My Lord,

Give us the will
To overcome our heartless indifference for
Those who suffer 

So as 

Able us to be,
In the ever-stretching desert of apathy, your  
Seed of concern to sow!

Work Shy

Idle and aimless, living on the dole

Going in circles like fish in a bowl.

A LIFE WORTH LIVING

                                    Worth living experience

INDIGNATION




No, my Lord,

Mercy, for their wretched souls, I could

Never ask

Let them burn into eternity for their atrocious crimes,

Committed against humanity 

And

Against the law of Thy infinite love !*

IS IT TRUE




Tell me, my Lord,

Is it true that seas and oceans, 

Created are by Thy tears 

Which 

Thee have shed, since the beginning
 
Of time 


For


All the suffering humanity has

endured

And

For all the afflictions of mine?
