Dawn’s Recitation

golden gate embraces
far eastern sky
that meddled on faces
beyond shadows,
light falls
down the thin line
of open sky
murmuring recitation,
a heaven’s prodigy
a sacred remedy
for lives that follow the path
the sanity of light

Ephemeral

image

His tragedy in the doorway
Following my name, of memory
Blackmailing sympathy
Fainted in blue

His silent memory
Cold, sharp and bitter
Like a venom
Of sheer pink rose

It’s truncated
Like pieces of wailing sun,
in my eyes
I want to stop saying his name
We are nothing but a broken wind

Night Blooming Cereus

When darkness fall
Some souls fade away
To the moon and the sky
Howling with the wind to break the night

After nightfall
There’s a blooming princess
Shining white in golden lights
Full blossoms, night after night

Night Fiesta On Magical World

I walk alone, I walk alone
Through a wooden chocolate forest and sweet sugar glaze
Lollipopmoon swirling around
Till strawberry juice falling down

Sweet lips are hanging on the clouds
in the wide open skies
Sweet lips are smiling so the stars will shine
I’ll kiss those lips to steal a smile

In a world full of sweets and candy jar, I stay awhile
Ginger breads dancing on their feet, pushing me around
Every move is giving the most delicious tempting aroma

Trampoline, trombone and saxophone
Fireworks party all night long
An endless magical shooting star
A night fiesta of the black-turns-red-sky
Somehow I wonder,
why does my eyes soaring?
Stare of an empty face

Black Suede Pillow

Behind the shadow of a nightmare
Sleepless under the trees
Whistling with the constellation of the stars
Full moon over mahogany fingers

A night journey has begun
Darkened sky and smokey rivers
Where souls attached without questions
After a day, night has become a magic healer

Black suede pillow
A remedy like pills afterglow
Night after night
Dream catcher singing a lullaby

The Morning Street Walker

Time is ticking slow
In this almost-dawn side of the street
It’s slightly dark
O, tightly chill

The eyes are wide open
Waiting patiently
Waiting for a promise to see

Till he kisses the falling rays
Till he can sway the violet breeze
Till he reveals the unseen colors
Till he can taste the sweetness of glazing dews

So he takes the very first step
Humming along the street
Feet by feet
Lighter than ever

Under the shades a homeless sleeps over dusts
Undisturbed, as if no day awaits
Behind the shadows wild cats linger in circle
Unaware, as if nowhere to hide

When sunrise touches the sky
He’s been there to see, in the street
When solar heat diminishes the breeze
He’s been there to feel, in the street
When lives awake like a blossom
He’s been there to meet, in the street

It’s a promise to see hope
It’s a promise to feel gratitude
It’s a promise to meet his self belief
It’s a promise to remember
In every morning where day begins
Because he’s the morning street walker

Parts Of My Life

image

There are parts in my life when I’m feeling not alive
When I see my fingers laying on my chest
Deep wrinkled in white
Deep down inside
Like a sorrow in a hollow

There are parts in my life that I regret all the time
Memories attached lingers in my dreams
Deep within the heart
Deep down inside
I feel another life buried all the way

But when I see the falling tears
And when I see the calling fears
Hold me now, hold me now, hold me now
Open my eyes with the lights of your love
Open my eyes tonight

No, I can see now when the wind blows
I’ll be flying high, up in the sky
No, I can see now all the sorrow
I have to let go
And live beyond the dreams

Magic Mirror

if a magic mirror
can’t tell you the truth
that lies deep in your heart

maybe you should try to break it
hoping that the pieces
won’t scratch the skin

cause when the glass is shattered
then your heart will be broken either
there you will see

undeceiving shape of your selfbelief
