I show you my every thought and wonder about yours.

More doom, raining blood
Hailing sins down on mankind

Art Admired
Roaming around in the Gallery today
Eyes growing wide with colourful sway
Splashes so vibrant burying layers
Flashes and hues, images and prayers

Catching my attention, full of the joys
Some were dark, sad, black, brown, grey
Others were vibrant,...Read More

Premium Member Antonin Artaud Theater of Cruelty or Joie de Vivre Part 1
Paris then was a place
Where new ideas were
Brewing in the intellectual 
And art communities
And new ones were
Emerging everyday
Some brilliant some not 
Time will make it clear 
What is what
But then it was an exiting
Paris of the time of Artaud

What strange remembering
Is a dream.

Teasing newly cast desires

Bloodbath
Metamorphosed into a blithe snail
I take a solemn look at the world
The evergreen grassy field stretches before me
And the unending rivers flow past the time.
High up there I find clouds
In unison with harrowed birds
They dance past imbecile lakes and mountains

Stoned Age
Off the clock
The world still spins 
As I blaze blithely by. 

Time is not always wasted, 
wasting away with you,
my quasi-legal muse.

Roulette of the senses,
Not always passive, 
Surrealist creativity often surpasses
the lazy stigma that sticks to you. 

Unfortunately, there is...Read More

Funeral of a Surrealist
Surrealist’s funeral is held in the air,
yet, his coffin is not carried by a supersonic speed plane 
flying through the open sky—altitude higher than the stratosphere,
gazing at the sun or a blimp drifting away, in the air, in a leisurely...Read More

The Dream Dreamt by a Surrealist
Life is not enigmatic but eerie, life lives on 
sucking blood though it’s not Count Dracula;
after sundown you won’t see a thing 
even if you don’t cover yourself with a black cloak.

In the dark of the early April morning,
however, you’ll...Read More

My furry friend beside me in his comfy spot

Betrayal
Love is betrayal
A knife in the heart.
A stone that breaks my bones
Love is betrayal,
that lies to you about dreams of care and kindness,
but stabs you in the back
with disloyality
when you are not looking.

Is it possible for a writer to face...Read More

The Love songs of Naive Girls
Oh watch now, the naive girls
walking in evening dreams
and stand in dust pools, dry and rocky.

among the talks of good and evil, among the talks of you and me?

The Four Letter Word
Four letters put together to create one word,
with an impeccable definition.

Love...,
It is a strong word,
Close to the heart, yet
far from the woman you Love.

orange and white wings in the summer heat.
The butterflies flap, flap their beautiful wings

Goodnight my Fair Maiden
Goodnight my Fair Maiden,
I shall see you once again.

At the gloomy dawn of Mankind.
As the Red Sun reaches over the treeline,
Far in the East.
I shall see you again.

For my love for you...Read More

Wrapped Little Body - Cut-Up poem
Other violence this world
There human flames ceased
Sick swan six
With circles some melancholy
Doctor failure some

Different universe copy soul
Wrapped little body respect
About shoulders stopped arms
Flash doubles wife

Early patient
Stopped her crown
Simple modern
Loop provided effect
While hate challenge simple.
