As we leap...

For the day...

How do we feel...

Time?

Is it seconds..

On a clock...

Or rich moments...

That will be...

Effused in...

The liquid case...

Of memory...

My time is not lost...

But found...

Recounted in...

Vivid detail...

Of colors and sounds...

In my mind.

knowing

It makes me feel...

Knowing...

That you exist.

My true love...

I just want you...

To be...

Happy.

Even if that is...

Without me.

It would be a lie to say...

That I do not..

Fantasize...

About a day...

When I can stare into...

Your eyes.

For now I am content.

Knowing you are well...

And that someday...

To that joy...

I will fulfill.

I am the breeze...

in the air.

I am the light...

in your hair.

Wandering through..

Existence...

Like a fallen leaf...

that has caught...

The wind.

I go up...

I go down.

But will never...

Fall...

To the ground.

to stand

Take the issue..

More money..

More feet.

Get out of the race.

Or take the heat.

Putting up words..

But they don't..

Have a beat.

All talk.

No action.

No beliefs.


Give us something we can stand on.

Give us something to believe in.

Because United....

We want....

To stand.

refurbished in solitude

Through..

The open window...

Came the promise...

Of hope...

And awakening...

The sun of enlightenment.

She saw bricks...

Refurbished in solitude...

And trusted them...

To be the ground...

Under..

Her mobile wings.

Yet

I have no

  Emotions.

Only words and colors...

  Expounding onto a page.


I have no

  Love.

Only devotion..

  to that which means

  more to me than myself.


I have no

  Pride.

Only an awareness

  of who I am in the Present.


I have nothing.

  Yet.

I have everything.

i am strong again

 

when soap gets in your eyes

can you feel more clearly

the pain you caused

when you were near me

 

I've said it before

ill say it again

you're the reason

its still hard for me 

to be close to a man 

 

did it give you pleasure 

to hold me down and call me fat

i was your wife

what kind of man would

do that

 

I was weak for a time

i am strong again

 

I wish I could save everyone from

your haze

i have to strive for all women

better days 

 

i was weak for a time

but i am strong again

you knew before me

 

i didn't believe in 

at first sight

until i loved you

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

fell in unison at first sound

 i saw you

at that moment 

you became everything to me

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

your nervous twitch 

and your sliding hips

dont worry

you make me anxious too

 

you knew me before

you knew before me

 

years to the day 

i still want to 

dream of your face and 

you touching that place

nothing more

than to be near you.

 

you knew me before

dreams

 Reading of "Dreams" by Carrie Able

 

 

one of those days

just wanting bed

same damn song

 in my head

 

outwards and up 

out and in

 wondering will I ever see

them again

 

warm window air

breeze down the hall

someone screams

after I fall

 

the suns going down

about that time

to have some dreams

and wake up 

to mine

the beat of the drum

the beat of my heart

the beat thats about to happen

on this subway car

 

clashing prints

sacks of stuff

 

stripes and heels

snapping stills

 

cars on the street

money at your feet

 

the sky is small

but the beat is

the beat is 

big

blood on the leaves

 

"Strange Fruit"

by Nina Simone

 

 

Southern trees

Bear strange fruit

Blood on the leaves

And blood at the roots

Black bodies

Swinging in the southern breeze

Strange fruit hangin'

From the poplar trees

Pastoral scene

Of the gallant south

Them big bulging eyes

And the twisted mouth

Scent of magnolia

Clean and fresh

Then the sudden smell

Of burnin' flesh

Here is a fruit

For the crows to pluck

For the rain to gather

For the wind to suck

For the sun to rot

For the leaves to drop

Here is

Strange and bitter crop

And keep your eyes wide The chance won't come again

 

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"

- Bob Dylan 

 

 

Come gather 'round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You'll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you

Is worth savin'

Then you better start swimmin'

Or you'll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics

Who prophesize with your pen

And keep your eyes wide

The chance won't come again

And don't speak too soon

For the wheel's still in spin

And there's no tellin' who

That it's namin'

For the loser now

Will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don't stand in the doorway

Don't block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There's a battle outside

And it is ragin'

It'll soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don't criticize

What you can't understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is

Rapidly agin'

Please get out of the new one

If you can't lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn

The curse it is cast

The slow one now

Will later be fast

As the present now

Will later be past

The order is

Rapidly fadin'

And the first one now

Will later be last

For the times they are a-changin'.

XX

 

A woman’s face, with nature’s own hand painted,

Hast thou, the master-mistress of my passion;

A woman’s gentle heart, but not acquainted

With shifting change, as is false women’s fashion;

An eye more bright than theirs, less false in rolling,

Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth;

A man in hue, all hues in his controlling,

Which steals men’s eyes and women’s souls amazeth.

And for a woman wert thou first created,

Till nature as she wrought thee fell a-doting,

And by addition me of thee defeated,

By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.

  But since she pricked thee out for women’s pleasure,

  Mine be thy love, and thy love’s use their treasure.

 

By William Shakespeare

Sonnet VX

 

When I consider every thing that grows

Holds in perfection but a little moment;

That this huge stage presenteth nought but shows

Whereon the stars in secret influence commént;

When I perceive that men as plants increase,

Cheerèd and checked ev'n by the self-same sky,

Vaunt in their youthful sap, at height decrease,

And wear their brave state out of memory;

Then the conceit of this inconstant stay

Sets you, most rich in youth, before my sight,

Where wasteful time debateth with decay,

To change your day of youth to sullied night;

  And all in war with time for love of you,

  As he takes from you, I engraft you new.

 

by William Shakespeare

blending melodies with paint

smelling the sound

hearing the color

love the mixture

not what you do

but how you play it
