The Lantern

Your heart sags wrinkled now

Old and grey before its time

Ravages shown in bandy legs

A heavy toll of frost and rime

 

Tarry not till your heart is old

Make hay afore night descends

Time rips fast and none knows

When life sinks low and ends

 

Once your heart was fanciful

Joys were the order of the day

Now its an armchair and pills

Listening to what doctors sa...

A Thousand Years Ago

 

It’s happened all before:

People lived and loved

A thousand years ago,

Or so.

 

They had petty squabbles

And were late for work

They spent money they didn’t have

And bought things they didn’t need

They lived and died

And laughed and cried

A thousand years ago,

Or so.

 

Men chased their lovers

And they wined and dined

And made love under the cove...

Time

 There is a way in the window

I sit here thinking of them all

How to set myself free from the weight of it all

Is there time for it or am I just a glaze of dust in it all

I rather believe that time isn’t important

It’s just something that keeps us going

Time isn’t the problem it’s the value of it that controls us all

Time

Soul Songs

Your poetic words 

bring comfort

my mind

cannot comprehend. 

Floating in the

healing waters

of your soul, 

is my favorite pastime. 

Two stars colliding,

creating a kaleidoscope 

of time. 

In the space 

of your song, 

life is sublime.

The Quiver Of Fond Lips

I never used to look at people's faces

My body language was out of kilter

Then I met you and saw the world

Through a life-changing filter

 

The thing about you that gets me

Is the quiver of merciful lips

On a mouth adorning the face 

That leaves my heart in bits

 

The quiver of fond lips cant be beaten

It makes my soul leap and rhyme

Should yours ever stop quive...

Yesterday is Better than Tomorrow

Yesterday is Better than Tomorrow 

Ujjal Mandal, India, July 06, 2020

Yesterday is faithful, 
It came to me  before today.
But
Tomorrow is unfaithful, 
It may come or not.

Hand Count

 

Sixty times a minute

I have travelled round this face

Three thousand six hundred times an hour

I have faithfully kept pace

Eighty six thousand four hundred times a day

I’ve ticked along

Six hundred and four thousand eight hundred times a week

Always right and never wrong

Eighteen million one hundred and forty four thousands times an average month

Midnight At The End Of Time

They say it will soon be over

That it's just a teenage thing

They dont know what they're saying

Last night I gave you my ring

 

Its like I'd known you forever

We seem to go back to Creation

To the shrine of Adam and Eve

We send our invitation

 

Midnight at the end of time

Midnight at the end of time

I'll love you at least until

Midnight at the end of time

Funerals for old men

In a cold cream brick chapel,

That should've never been built,

Was buried a man who was ill understood.

Redeemed in the minutes just before he had died

Look away now, this is not where he lies.

 

The truth can be found deep in the woods,

Beyond the dampest and darkest of familial 'shoulds'

It's sound slithers, and wrenches and wriggles so fine,

To open the door to this s...

Give me some time
to remember

when we met
you might not like

Always Love You

I will always love you. For the sun and the moon to know, to let the fear flow, to let the earth turn slow. Universe is for the lovers...

Her Heart, My Heart

move a beat binding  

pulse together,

two halves holding

the tailed ricochets

making rhythm this

romantic headache,

a

hammering allure,

and

ambidextrous adoring,

we could equally,

elope a pre-set,

picking the pace-

a metronome dragging,

the default off-beat,

out,

in,

every,

sense,

I steal the second-

with her heart beating-

with my hea...

The Epitome

Those shadows the epitome of time

let me bruise them so they cannot move,

make those pale moments clearer

in the light of the hurt-

a life no longer drenched

in shapes eclipsing the stopwatch,

now I can pause time when I want to

escaping the minutes for hours,

see the clouds in still shift,

alluding to an illusion

of some fading minute,

the hands of the clock skim ...

Event Horizon

 

Yesterday

I looked out of my window

The man taking his dog for a walk

The mother and child hand in hand

School children hopping and skipping along

Neighbours chatting over a fence

The postman delivering parcels

A cat slinking under the hedge

The wind whipping leaves

The rain falling

Yesterday

 

Today

I looked out of my window

The dog ...

Time

A million moments.

Still 

to a picture,

mortality hung to an aged nail

wearing those seconds in coated amour.

a relic to all those too quick to cherish...
