...

the greater the persona
the bigger the loss
the longer the memory...

Saturday, August 18, 2012

One Day, day one..

It all began when it all began.
It should have started somewhere.
It started here and that is it.

One day, it was, one afternoon
I saw a glimpse, a shade of light,
I saw my mom, her decent fight,
I knew it passed, I wasn’t dead.

I cried a bit, I had to cry,
I realized they cried as well,
We all cried that afternoon,
I guess I cried a bit too soon,
It all began when it all began.

I tried to look behind my back,
I couldn’t talk, nor could I walk,
That’s it, I am, already in,
That’s it, I said, let life begin.
For I am helpless, I am a tool,
I have a role, I hope I do,
If not, I will just pass it through.

The clock will tick from that day on.
It all began when it all began.

few hundred years...

He: I still can't cope with the fact that I have only one life to live.

She: ?

He:   I always felt that two to three hundred years more would make this life worth the trouble. Either that, or that phases are really too short!

She: What do you mean?

He:  Imagine!
       The first few years of your life with people define the rest of it, unfortunately.
       Meaning let's say:
       Ten to twenty years of meeting and greeting, loving and hating
       and,
       if you are lucky,
       You hook up with a life partner,  
       and,
       if you are faithful and good,
       It's gonna be that for the rest of it.

She: and?

He:  and, 
      
       in the back of our mind,
       few other stories here and there that had a potential to grow 
       Yet maybe not for this same life,
       Apparently!
       So maybe a couple of few more hundred years, distributed better, 
       And you are good to go!

       How is that for a Monday morning philosophy?
 
She: very very deep! trouble!

who needs who?

In all honesty,

In all modesty,

I don't need you.

As I have the memory of you,

Right here in my head.

It wakes up with me, it sleeps when I sleep

And believe me, it is strong.

Stronger than your reality, than your present self,

than you.

[...]

Go ahead,

As I,

... don't need you.

Best before, ...

He who does not feel inspired, expires? I wonder.

Talk about "inspiry" date.

"soul"itude, comme d'habitude.

He: alone, me? No.  
She: not for an afternoon, not for a nap? 
How can this be?

He: not for a second, I tell you.
She: so you have "never" experienced solitude, you say?

He: I try, I failed.
She: then, moments of loneliness you've never felt?

He: picture this.

each time I visit my solitude,
That's where I find you
Each time I escape to loneliness,
That's where you hide,
again.

Lonely"less", lonely "mess",

Unless,

You reappear, 

That's what I fear..

He: demanding? Really?

He: very simple. Pure balance!

She: you are such a character! And the balance of what would that be?

He: the balance of me.

She: and what am I to do!

Accidental.

Two days ago,

I slipped your mind
Jumped into conclusions
Fell in love
And
Broke my heart!

As simple as that!

Friday, March 05, 2010

empty...

I am writing to tell you I have nothing to tell you.

And

I am writing to say I have nothing to say.

You might want to answer, you might want to not.

I wouldn't really bother, if this letter I got.

I am empty
My pen is empty
My house is empty
My future is empty

Fill in the blanks

Monday, December 07, 2009

Whereas,...

You passed my mind,

today,

like any other day,

for the past "how many" years now.

yet,

today,

from the "how many" days,

I thought,

I would let you know...

Good day!

today...

... and I suddenly realized that i was already,

thirsty tree!

Monday, August 03, 2009

Dedicated to the memory of you.

The mentor, the father, the friend

...

The lunch, the laugh, the call

The remaining memory of it all

...

The last minute, "care"fully intensive goodbye

The illusion of a hope so high.

...

The fall, the loss, the grief.

...

The lack of a speech

The lack of your hand to reach

...

The one and only medication,

a sad and lonely dedication

...

to you.

Sunday, July 19, 2009

few meters a"way" of being.

He:

as near as I am

of being with you...


as far as I am concerned,

of "being" without you.

Saturday, July 04, 2009

for your eyes, only.

He: you know, I was thinking yesterday, and ...

She: well, that's a premiere!

He: yeah, ..., so I was thinking that,

Couples experiencing blind love should actually leave the room immediately, go to the nearest convenience store, get a walking stick, and if necessary a guide dog.

Safer and much more appropriate.

It's good this doesn't apply to our love! Hein?

A sightful relationship!

She: I "see". I "see".

He: I was sure you would agree with me on that one.

She: definitely, almost blindly I must say!

Sunday, May 17, 2009

a loss, in, a gain.

He: it's midnight again.

She: is it?

He: it's bedtime again.

She: is it?

He: it's your time, a gain.

He: it is. it is.

Diagnosis

She: so did you visit the clinic?

He: I did, again, yesterday.

She: and what did your doctor say!

He: he said, listen, don't be alarmed or anything, but...

She: yes!!

He: you are developping some rare kind of brain "hu"mour!

She: so funny.

He: I swear, he even gave me prescriptions!

She: come on!

He: he said, you better start taking regular infusions of "notfunnyatol"

She: ha ha!

Thursday, April 02, 2009

Going down memory lane

He: for old times sake,

I am on my way to work
I am listening to the Diva...

The track is titled: "The path of the bumble bee"

She is trying to say:

Just in case you leave me
And
In that case forget about me

Keep remembering me
And
Remember the path of the "bumble bee".

And that is exactly what I am doing!

Thursday, January 15, 2009

The lady I never knew

He:

"
Passed when I was not
Left right before I got
before I reached
the promised spot.

Passed when I was not
long after the day was shut
long before
the final dot.

inspired by a pain, a true
that lady I never knew
that girl I so long to view
that chance well over due

Visible for the lucky few,
the virtual essence of you."

and whenever you are through,
I will be around,

Out of order



" Dear Guests,

Kindly be advised, that heaven is closed for renovation;
and for that matter, hell as well."

How nice it would have been
if that note you read,
the moment you showed up at the door step,
and knocked?

How nice it would have been,
if then, you turned around
and just came back...

my friend, the actor
my dear friend,
honestly, your final act
in fact,
i hate.

Last time they met,

He said:
"Can you see the deep blue sea?"

She said:
"No it's too deep, it's impossible to see."

He said:
"Look, look ahead, can you see?"

She said:
"No, i can't, i am afraid i can't!!"

He said:
"Look ahead i said, look at the horizon far ahead.

For depth isn't necessarily downwards."

0.5 times Two = You

Since you are my half,

i never liked maths anyway..
and that i have to admit

so for me and from now on and on

0.5 x 2 = You

and only you.

Mayday, mayday

Look but don’t,
Don’t touch the dead,
Look but don’t,
The dead in bed,

Don’t help,
Don’t care,
Don’t pity,
Don’t pray,

Don’t loose your time,
On an easy prey,

For he has chosen
Not to live no more,
For he has chosen,
The final score…

Look but don’t,
Don’t touch
the dead,
Is dead.

Mud on white,

Tonight,

Lady of all dreams,
Lady of his screams,
What if you try,
if you only try,

Not to stain that white,
Only for one night,

Tonight.

I am bored,

I am bored,
Tell me a story
" ...
Once upon a time,
In a restaurant in the old town,
Just around the corner, after all the tables line up,
The restrooms.

And on a door leading to the men restrooms,
Where that sign states: MEN.
Was a young white man standing,
And standing he was.
All day long, all through the night,
New years, old years, standing

But…
What no one ever knew,
What no one never noticed,
Is that he had another occupation.

The "white man standing" was in love.
He was in love, yes.
With the lady standing in the other side of the corridor,
The "white lady standing",
On the ladies restrooms door.

All day long, he tried to get a glimpse,
But that door would not stop revolve,
Each time it stopped, it revolved again... and again
He never really had a chance,
To look at her, or even express,
his thoughts on love, his thoughts on her love...



One day,
One normal day,
He decided to leave the door for good.
He had to say he loved.
He had to say he dreamt.
He had to say.

He pulled, he pulled hard
As hard as he could,
But no way he would,
Go off the door.

Calling the lady he tried,
So desperately he tried,
The lady was busy hosting,
Ladies in and ladies out.
Ladies need make up,
Make up takes time.
Make up takes her time,
The "white lady standing" in the sign.

One day, one boring afternoon,
A technician was on sight,
Heading towards him.
A brush in his hand,
A brush filled with paint,
Blue paint.

The technician grabbed this metal thing
And swept him off the door,
The sign man was to leave,
The sign man was to travel,

But…
Who was right next to him
The "white lady standing",
Who was now lying on her back.
She also was swept.
She also was sent.
Now is the time he said
To reveal all the words he had,
Bubbling in his white tiny head.

One thing he did not know.
The same thing she did not know.
A sign can’t speak,
A sign can’t reveal,

They just lied there, all dressed in white,
They just lied there, lovers of the silent night.

The tray traveled.
She was supposed to.
To a factory.
The white couple standing were melted down,

… Onto one big road sign,
A sign that said:

"Dead end."

"The end"

the end of the world to me
is right where u live.

the end of the world to you
is where i am at now.

it is a small world after all
so does it really matter?

where it starts all
or where it all ends..

as long as each one takes care
of his end.

and hope that one day
if we are lucky enough,

no end or start,
no world at all,

would ever end.

The love "birds"

Once upon a time, there was a boy.
Once upon a time, there was a girl.
One day, one gloomy day,
The girl decides.
She wants to fly.


The boy said: "fly?"
"I want to fly"
Why did she decide just now to fly?
Fly as u like was his reply.


The next morning, she woke up early
Spread her hands and ...


The boy woke up,
And found his love down under,
With a broken neck.


She could not fly
She thought she could
She could not fly
He thought she could


For they have spent so many days
so many shaded days together,
on that tree.

U know What ...

People come and go,
...
...
...
...
...
...
Actually,

they just go.

... mates

Some days,

I feel I live aside.

They must be happy the way they live,

Those earthly creatures.

I wish one day,

only for one afternoon,

I could sign in.

And now,

Everything has an end, even this very sentence.

[...]

...

What to say when all is sad and done.

Solar,

The story of a sun blinded by her own glow,


...
What a shame,
Damn ego of me,

little me.

Reflections

Look at the flower as the mirror

Reflecting the inner beauty of you

Defeating the flower’s beauty in one issue,

The issue, the ephemeral,

Eternal you.

black [...] then white.

Rocking chair,

white hair,

I do not care,

I passed.

March 11th, 2041. “as if..”

... MY SHIP

I need a story, I need a tale,
I need a meaning to this long long sail.

Weight, waiT

[...] U are the light in my life,

Everything else is heavy.

About the blue ball,

[...]

Planet earth, dirty rats singing old times blues.

Nonsense sentence ...

I realized today, only today,
That no deeper sorrow has ever been,
No greater has ever lived, died and lived.
I bend my little self before the essence of all, all of us, all of You.
Embrace the nonsense of me.
Amen.

Remembering Becket,

Waiting for you, Godot came.

... en attendant,

I already told you , Godot came,
I wait for Noone else in this station but you,


You, nobody else but you.

Agronomy

...


The human being, the most vulnerable plant on earth.

" No one's " arch,

The world is drawing to an end.
The clock is running wild,
I am waiting for Noah.
Flood is the only possible way out.

A flood versus a flood.
People are blinder and deafer than ever.
People are louder than ever.
There shall be only one path, down.
Hoping that rain would be enough,
For all the deficiencies around, all around.

We expose ourselves to God above
And Noah is waiting for the green light,
Building an arch is inevitable,
Not much wood is needed,
A small arc is to be built.
Passengers are few, maybe no one at all,
Just some plants, some harmless creatures,
Men will drown, women will too,

All are to be drawn to an end.


Dubai, spring 2004.

Nobody's perfect .

The only mistake God made during the seven days of Creation,
was the introduction of human beings,

The world would have been just perfect.

الكرسي

شو حلو صوت الخشب محمل عضهرو التعب
الكرسي قاعد، عم بهز شو بهم، أنا وصلت

شو حلو لون الأبيض بوقته طل الأبيض
لو خلصت أيام العز شو بهم، أنا وصلت

تعمدت ؟ ما بعرف ناسي حبيت ؟ يمكن ، أكيد
القصة ضاعت براسي شو بهم، أنا بقيت

منهم قبلي فلوا، راحوا اللي هروا الصبح بكير
متل الخريف بآذار لبسوا عباية حرير

فلت معهم، هجت معهم الوقت اللي كمل وقف
العقرب زهق من الحيط ضيع بالعد وخرف

مبارح وقف صوت الخشب ومعه هالكرسي وقف
بي و ولد ، كومة لعب شو بهم، دمي نشف

ما تبكي حرام الولد يقرا القصه من الاخر
امك ناطره يا ولد قلها فرحي، بيي مسافر

وبقي لوحده الخشب عم بهز، ساكت الصوت
قعدت محلي الغبره ضهرت انا، ومعي الموت

Switch ...

Life goes on,

and on and on,
and on and on,
and on and on,

… and off.

... green blues

Why not be a bug,
Lost in the green grass,
Better, much better


Crushed just at time, the end of time.
