In Translation


I speak or I write
You hear or see
Not said or written
To you from me

Words are of my past
I can say no more
Yet you understand
Your want and more

Inflection reigns down
Scavenged meanings lost
Building your own story
No matter the cost

Yet I will always try
To speak to a heart
One that never forgets
Why we are all apart



I Will


I want, I want
I wish, I wish,
If only, if only,
One day, one day

I could, I could
I would, I would
I will, I will
One day, one day

You are, you are
You didn’t, you don’t
You will not
One day is Today

Stoic Poetry


Noisy Silence


Traffic rattles the dead of night
A world slowly comes to sight
Kettle whistles, egging on

Silent mastery in all sound
For Peace will always abound
Another day to face the dawn

Sizzled smells awaken senses
Greet the dawn without defenses
A favorite song begins to play

Pondering this noisy symphony
That is what it must always be
Without words begin the day

For silence holds no borderline
Accepting all rhythm and rhyme
Two sides of the same door

Entwined, sound embraces the quiet
Its birthplace upon which this riot
Lovers are held for evermore

One alone can never be apart
As Silence is what holds the heart
In Silence to adore
