The Plan

I looked at the sky painted in pretty purple and pink.
I counted the building’s floors, trying hard not to blink and think.
Calm down, jumping is fun and surely death will swiftly come.

Tattooed and Tattered

Rugged hands inked with brave symbols—
dark icons that make innocent heart trembles.
None knows they hide war’s one broken, tattered soul.

Rhythm and Rhyme

The hands of this vintage clock have ticked and turned more than a thousand times.
Likewise my old heart has beat millions da-dums, da-dums.
And now they are both yours, my poetry’s rhythm and rhyme.

Lips-made Poetry

The growling, glaring velvet sky is angry,
as if it’s sharp lighting and loud thunder can stop you and me
from etching our bodies with lips-made poetry.

Pick One

Carefully choosing among the sharp, the hard, the brute and the bad,
my shaking hand grazes the powerful tools’ varied edges
as it discerns what it’ll use to you and your mistress.

Cherry Lips

Our old cherry tree is pregnant again with its plump, bloody, cheerful fruits,
which always remind me of your red lips as soft as the sound of the flute—
until that wintry day came and turned them so blue and oh, so cold.

Escape

Escape

Raindrops washes my dark tainted pass,
train rails erases mem’ries I don’t want to last.
It’s time to fly fast— away from them, towards his arms.

Tied Tight

Tied Tight

Tied inside your tight love,
imprisoned in your intense passion,
you took my soul away from its home.

Love-Sealed Letters

Love-Sealed Letters

War took you from my arms to battle field,
you remained through your letters kiss-and-love-sealed,
until they stopped arriving.
