When the clouds don’t sleep… [POEM]

tonight looked and felt like yesterday
with nothing to say
somehow I kept to myself
but now is just today
and the sky is still awake
because nothing changed
It won’t stay that way
because soon is going to rain
and I will have to hold you
so that you don’t wash away
or just because I want to
or in order to be sane
or for the sake of some might say,
not going to play
I hope you understand
that I have no regrets
nor do I like to wait
so I will have to impose a will
that will more than likely change
or make a kind of different
that will never be the same
and what becomes of silence
that knows just what to say
is much difficult for both of us
like pretending to be estranged
your skin still tastes like cream
and your naked still gets me
your eyes still hold the vision
your energy still lifts me
but I don’t like the pain
of only dreaming these things
words don’t deserve to convince you
and action is yet restrained

I hope good forever for you
but I must take a train
not going to come outside anymore
and watch you leave again
time for that cloud to rest
I believe you, too much to wait
and this is for the best
that, or asking you to stay

this mornings cloud left something
a sign of things to come
an opening that broke its hold
and I was shown the sun.

Sold Out… [POEM]

I myself have succumb
fallen victim to excite
somehow went astray
for such was only right,
that I’d eventually do
nothing
that the magic would not be
no trick for bringing back to life
a dead you did not see
an audience of one
a crowd of cannot count
still I among her diehard fans,
had lost her way somehow
a volunteer was asked
thought sure that it was me
in this room of none but us
was still not found to be
instead she picked a picture
a feeling that she had
put on a show for her own idea
asked me to carry bags
I did as so was ordered
I’d never see it clear
even hurt is circumstance
and such could bring me near
I applauded and I cheered
I brought flowers, came again
a show put on a thousand times,
I found impress, without pretend
her tour of feelings was a schedule
I marked days and went to note
gave her flatter for her confidence
and not a single word we spoke
not once did I deny her
not ever did I flee
she picked a different man every time
and not one time was me
she wanted glitz
I gave her glory
she wanted fame
I gave her peace
she wanted only
for the spotlight
I gave her space,
and set her free
I am still a fan of sort
her music still the best
but her songs no longer wake me
not like they do the rest
for this should not be magic
no tricks or fancy light
what she was doing was performing,
rehearsing love just can’t be right
so I released her from my idol
a season series I would not attend
would rather forfeit every feeling,
than watch her play for other men.
