You Don’t Know Jack!










If you really want to know
Something about me,
All I can tell you is that
My life’s a speck of dust
-In this I trust.
Apart from that,
I don't know much
And you don’t know jack.

I'LL CRY








I'll CRY


When there's nothing else to try for,
I'll cry.

When rivers are blood,
My sadness will flood
Over a dry land.

I'll walk through the meadows
That once were alive,
 Transpassing their shadows
Remembering light.

I'll kneel on the sand
And face a dead sea
Where only death dives
And mourn for these times.

When nothing else matters,
I'll cry.

CHIMERA








She danced in ataxia,
Involved by chimera
Of things she invented
About her fake life...

She looked in the mirror
And saw a strange queen
Whose crown was suspended
Above her bald head...

If only instead
Of making up lies
She could find a reason
To be what she's like!

Oh, what a false world,
Oh, what a false life!
Her ego so huge,
She could not see light!

My Love







My love for you
Is not insane,
Or mostly immense.
It doesn't break the limits
Of my good sense.

My love for you
Is something simple,
Without derision,
Unsympathetic 
But not demanding.

My love is real,
And has survived
Under the limits
Of limitations,
With little sparks
Of infatuation.

And if you ever
Doubt that it's real,
I'll close my eyes,
And I'll say nothing
To reassure you
Of how I feel.

DESERT








DESERT


Silence. All around.
Until she started paying attention,
And heard the wind haul
The grains of sand in the air.

The desert was alive,
After all.

My Biggest Mistake








Once I crossed a street,
And because of the silence 
Coming from both sides,
I didn't look another time.

I was hit,
I was run over like an abandoned bitch.

That was my biggest mistake.
