The Nature of Love

I held her softness in my arms

Her hard nipples stabbing my chest

Till the world outside threatened

To burst in through the doors.

Then she shattered in my arms

And vanished like a dream

Her pieces digging into my skin.

Later when she called

And asked if my wounds were bleeding,

Her voice choked with tears of joy When I said, “Yes”.

And the sunlight was washed By gloomy raindrops,

Birds fluttered their wings To dust away the grime,

And people scuttled through

The tunnels of the world

Seeking for happiness,

And love lay quietly sobbing,

Just living for its pain

I Know

I tried to blow it away like a feather,

It came back like a homing bird;

I crushed it like a dried up flower,

It grew moist soft petals in my palm;

I cast it off like tattered old clothes,

It warmed me with golden sunrays;

Like an autumn leaf it yellowed & fell,

But came back green and vital –

I have felt it and held it and seen it,

And I know that love is for real.

A Cowboy’s Soul

It was a dainty little town, yes,

Sleepy and calm,

With a happy river tumbling along

Nipping playfully at its feet.

And you could go to the salon

For a spot of beer sometimes,

Or better, lie in the sunny meadow

With hat covering smiling face,

Head resting on sweetheart’s softest lap.
But maybe the Town of Love

Ain’t where a cowboy lives long,

But has to leave his heart behind,

And hit the dusty, parched trail.

For it’s not in the guitar

Or in the Colt or the tireless horse,

But in the endless blue blue sky,

That the soul of a cowboy lies,

And where it slowly slowly heals.

Lusty Woman

She’s a lusty woman wading through

The sparkling waves of the shallow sea,

Gazing fondly on one man,

Flirting with another, and kissing three.

Her brazen swells dipping with the waves,

Her eyes shining with a drunken mirth,

And I think that here’s just another fish,

With bright colors and of shallow worth.

And then I catch her eyes like the deep sea,

Whales of passion roaming in a fleet,

With a Kraken of sadness brooding beneath,

And my heart melts at the goddess’s feet.

The ocean shatters his heart to pieces

In passionate anger against cold earth;

Our love has withstood the fury of words,

Will it stand the deadly challenge of silences?

Because Winning is Everything

Maybe it was your lack of skill

Or simply lack of will for kill,

You may have crumpled all your dreams

“Ah, it’s so good to just flow with the stream” –

But in the dark basement of your head,

The place where angels tremble in dread,

Neatly stacked and stinking fresh,

Lie your dreams with wounded flesh;

And each little cut of past defeat,

Refusing to soothe with false sweet

Balms of lying quack Philosophy,

And lotion of human brotherhood rosy.

You wanna walk a life in his golden shoe

And you wanna have his golden-skinned wife too,

If the grass seems greener on the other side

The only real way is to take it, your own besides.

And though you may think death is sweet,

But each new hammered nail of defeat

Makes the cross groan as pathetic as ever;

Because winning is everything, now and forever

Embedded

In the spikes of her unruly hair

In the brown warmth of her eyes

In the glint of her wicked smile

In the love softness of her skin

In the proud swell of her curves

In the sunlight of her soul,

He found himself.

And finding him empty, nothing,

She left him –

And within every tiny fiber of herself,

She found him.
