Can I leave this without a name?

To find joy in a smile that's smitten
In silly flowers and the poem unwritten
In prancing butterflies pure and mild
Pleasures only the mind can find

To marvel at the ocean moon
To indulge me like your homegrown
To touch my heart in ways unknown
To make the mystery unravel on its own

To bring in soundless shells from sea
To also bring in the joy like thee
To ponder me but ask no proof
Like a miracle that is kept aloof

The language only some can speak
The thought the best would seek
To have the songs that are always right
To be the distraction of the sweetest kind

To be the poem, my touchstone.



He will an enchantment remain
unparalleled, undoubted and understood
The puzzle still stubborn and sore
my mind will solve it no more

Some things will stay the way they are
some loves that are too improbable to be
faraway smiles and majestic souls
some that were and some that are to be

My words have a guest tonight
tonight will sure be long
yes I should pause and belong
the guest wont be here for long

Tomorrow will soon come along.


look back
turn around
do I seem sound?
Where did you go?
you lost me at the bend long ago
Did you find the old yellow paper?
it was my poem in a beautiful wrapper
look back
turn around
Is it you?
Where did the paper go?
Has it fallen into the hollow?
I have nothing but that poem
that's all I have - to give you.


It's not mine

How can I trouble my tears to no mercy
over something that was never meant to be
like always I should let the thin thread break
and I should hand it to my friend - destiny

How can I ask in all my prayers divine
something that can never be forever mine
my prayers are only answered up to the comma thereof
God always forgets to search for the full stop

How can I surrender and sublimely belong -
to some loose notes that can never be a song
my box is full and filled with many a colorful petal
only missing is the middle and the petals inevitably fall

Can I wish for one more eternity beyond?
where there's just you and I and a pond
where the heart is not held at ransom by the mind
where I am yours and you are mine to find
