stranger

you
left the
covers
of your
home
a long
time ago

and

you
return
totally
as an
alien
speaking
a different
language
hearing
a different
music

you
must
resign
from
being
a stranger
to the many
loved ones

better unknown

roads lead me
somewhere

i knew then

those good and evil
inside this mind
directed me

but someone
higher than all
is now leading me
to a better unknown

in time

this hurt shakes
the quiet heart
and slowly
the mind is
in chaos

the world
is a friend
an enemy

time is
time will

heal
all wounds

someone is
bigger who
makes all
things
right

songs of the quiet self

words are
playing
with
melody

deeper

here
i am quietly
and quietly
i am
singing

where
words are
not heard

but heard
deep inside
of me

all right all time in love

things are
all right
all right
this time

time changes
it ticks
it ticks
all time

hearts feel
we are
we are
still in love

twenty-one

where
the night
is cold
inside a
room and
the thoughts
are timid
to shout
in the air

where
the heart
is beating
and to
hate
is a lesser
feeling
but to
love
is the
greatest

where
you
and i
are endless
lovers who
wish
there’s no
distance
that can
tear us apart

scourges

pleading—
i can’t retreat
aching details
of past and present
flogging my mind
with intense censures
breaking my skeletons
ripping my veins
i can’t die
in this anguish
