INBETWEEN

In between circles of confusing chaotic mumbles
please at least grant me a peaceful night rest
and save me the fight with my soul
me, myself and I
or the silhouetted fantômes
of undead troubles lashing
out before me

Wrenching out my still beating heart
with such force it hurts
I gape etonné
In between catching my breath
in between my vocal chords snapping in two
in between the struggle
in between my life flashing by
flick by rapid flick
I remain immobile


In between waiting for demain
for the stars to give way
to a beautifuless sky
full of nothing
'save the rains
in between sitting through the rainfall
eating cold ice cream
in between the pitch blackness
when I close my eyes
in between a flooded mind
a sunflower in the middle of a corn field
in between a world obsessed with unity
of a billion wars
fighting so hard to keep the pack of dead alive
wanting, yet not getting


In between the slow motion
of pain a mother
brings forth the nine month old thing
and how the the fragile thing
would one day germinate into
a man
or something In between
and one day would want to
transform into a woman
or a robot
or both


In between the strings attached
unattached and reattached
In between the cold frustration
purple anger
blue sickness
yellow fevers
and black neutrality
I never forget
au nom de Venus
I never forget your face.

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…

SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN

seven minutes in heaven;
seven minutes counting
heart beats by the second.
six minutes in heaven;
all the while tapping feet
on shaky wooden floorboards
in nervous delight.

five minutes in heaven;
five minutes counting
down to reality:
a beastly, slimy one.
four minutes in heaven;
wondering if by chance
or luck or grace,
a glimpse of an angel
 would suffice.

three minutes in heaven,
and lo a ladybird atop
your nose tickles,
dances, wiggles, jiggles,
then away,  flies.
two minutes in heaven,
two minutes or the next,
daydreams finally might come
to be:
visions of sunny skies,
silly side aching laughs_
chocolatey gums,
all on display
for my ever aching eyes.

a minute left in heaven
the last, the longest,
the shortest it seems,
the last before you wake
and stare at
the computer screen
in a crowded
noisy bureau,
someplace.

you sigh.
"of course it was unreal."
