Play in the Night
From two o’clock
When owls hoot
Up to four when cocks crow
Surely I will be kept awake,
To watch the secret play
Of the conscious and unconscious.
However, I will not see
The queer performance inside me
As a mere dream in the night.
If I long for better plays,
More I will wander dur...

Will you raise your voice for the oppressed
Will you demand Governmental redress
Will you speak on things that truly matter
Will you allow this illusion to truly shatter
Will you plant the seeds in the ears of youth
So they can discover the yield of truth
Will you speak up Will you scream
Will you have faith Will you dream
Will you turn up your volume for the silenced

The other day I caught myself staring at your image
Embedded in the cliff-side pool.
Surrounded by flowers and foliage,
Miles away from you.
Your skin porcelain,
You didn't even seem human.
And maybe you weren't.
You were perhaps just an abstract concept,
An evanescent concoction of pigments,
Who swam away, leaving behind no remnants.
When I thought ab...

Ujjal Mandal, India
Keep dreaming till the dark night
Fades in the morning light.

was it true,
sleep depends on tears?
to refill the well
that had dried up by day,
or to wet the lids, at least,
by dreaming sad dreams,
with that tearful hope,
had the sleep come by night?

I awake on a bed of roses,
Whose petals crunch like orphaned autumn leaves.
A ray of sunlight towards me approaches,
Dancing in the light are muddy speckles aplenty.
I can feel the air around me toy with my locks,
Which is as feeble as your grasp on my hand.
But I hold on
To you, this very second, this very moment.
The mere sight of you sugarcoats my disill...

Once I saw a dream
Of living in an open air
Full of freedom with colorful layer.
Having a sight to achieve a height
There comes a lover of a face with smile.
Never said, never asked a question
Simple sight made all the decisions.
Believing the person, giving up everything,
My life was trapped like anything.

For Whom The Hammer Tolls
Dreaming of a hammer
A slow arc of deadly intent
A shaper of metal
The clang of contact
On a wrought iron anvil
That resonates threat
The white-hot sparks
From the red-hot ingot
As it succumbs
Weighing its power
In the palm of your hand
With a smack of skin
Its dull grey mass
On a sha...

Swing chains squeak
like unoiled screen door hinges
with each push, I get closer
to touching clouds.
Once I’ve achieved maximum
momentum, I prepare to launch
into the stratosphere
everything slows down;
I feel the heaviness of each heartbeat;
the impending weightlessness of my body
I catch a glimpse of the proud smile
decorating your face;
your mouth wording inaudible sound...

There is a moment between dreams
when you’re neither here nor there
A dream can pull you one way
Or pull you another
There’s a calmness and understanding
That your inner self can touch
That your secret self can feel
Pulling you together
Perhaps you’re in tune with someone
Connecting soul to soul
Someone that you’ve never met
Someone that you’ve known, for...

How wide is the ocean, how far away are the stars
Is there really life up there on Mars ?
heaven they say is above us and hell below
Many question but answers are few you know
Nothing is for certain except I know I love you
in my dreams your my lover with out you I'm blue
Its Valentine's Day made for lovers who care
Yet we only meet in dreams your always there
We make lov...

It's a new season love
Time to evolve again
Time to set out; create new memories
Theres a universe out there waiting for you
If only you could see yourself from before
Then you'd know nothing can stop you
The sun moon and stars bow for you to bloom
You've come too far to back down
Too strong to drown
Shine on...Shine on... young love
