MOMENT BETWEEN THOUGHTS

 2003

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Evocare ~

 

Losing my words to you

I am no longer great nor brave

Sheltering beneath your palm

Sweet sympathy turns to dew.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Libatio ~

 

If only lightning could liberate

Aim and strike at the core

Where guilty passions rage

I would, this crown of thorns, replace.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Lysandra ~

 

Alas, towards a fading breath

Like the mellifluousness

Of a daydream

I am gone.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Ingenerare~

 

I belong in

This numbed silence

In this playground of thoughts

Where Truth lies still, skinned.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Elysium ~

 

Seated at the helm of introspection

Entwined amidst an embroidered fallacy

Eyes gaze forth without  condemnation

With nerves unsettled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Provocatio ~

 

Soliloquy of praise

Perched on my hand like a dove

Without remonstrance

I release it to a forgotten paradise.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Evasio ~

 

Fleeting moments

Subject to consequence

Melt at the brink

With every transgression.  

 

 

 

 

 

~ Procuratio ~

 

The sustenance of pleasure

Flows from the essence of beauty.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Procuratio II ~

 

Where charity has no measure

 Providence reigns infinitely.

 

 

 

 

~ Miscellaneous ~

 

Generosity is not measured

By the amount you give

But by the amount

You sacrifice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Proverbialis ~

 

To draw on happiness

In between the frames of time

Is to capture a moment

In which many are denied.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Babylonius ~

 

The faint chime of prurience

Encroaches as dusk appears

Like the susurration of a heart-beat

Eyes closed, reality disappears.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Axioma ~

 

Every feeling warrants an explanation

Like a whirlwind, emotions fumble without cause

As every word succumbs to the light

The temple of interpretation is preserved.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Dorma ~

 

Life brings only decay: so

Damn the light, the mirrored hallways

The busy streets, the abject glances

That steer all hopes away.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Exhortatio ~

 

Shame on you, fatherland

For wooing God’s trust

The glorification of conquest dangles like bait

With arms that chime a forgotten hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Neuter ~

 

To seek is to follow ignorance

In waiting comes the unforeseen

In forgetting the paramount is delivered                                                                                           

In rejecting the all-conquering imbues within.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Atta Kenare ~

 

Bruised and battered

Like rotten plums

Fallen from a great height

They crouch at the foot of the cross.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Crystallum ~

 

Riding on the carousel of deceit

Screened by the flames of unreality

Such uncharted allegories

 Do youthful minds trail.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Pahlaviv ~

 

To gaze through the eyes of an emperor

To smell the orchids and touch the gold

To lose it all, life grows

Old in an instant.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Disfacere ~

 

Surrendering to an infinite power

Where strength turns to its substitute

And the frame of composure skews

Fragments may be buried, but the cycle continues.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Epiphania ~

 

When the heart and the mind

Aligns itself with each other

Life’s simple complexities

Blossom like a rare flower.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Intercedere ~

 

To lose sight of ambition

Is to draw the dagger deeper

Words never fulfil prophecies

Without the deeds to accompany.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Maledictio ~

 

The torment of a reflection

Has made its imprint

The mind seeks validation

As reasons wrestle with expectations.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Candidus ~

 

Love’s escapade

A mere fantasy

Surrendering from the womb

Tender arms embrace my kind.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Perfectio ~

 

Love is not the resounding tune of joy

But the unity of every beat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Provocatio ~

 

Silent is the voice that speaks of loss

Still is the heart-beat that brims with fear

And empty is the mind

That demands forgiveness.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Rursus ~

 

 Gone are the colours and sounds of youth

Memories cling onto every wall

Momentum of life, led by crooked steps

Finally submits to the charge of dawn.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Salvus ~

 

I am used to disappointment

What is it to wait another day?

 

 

 

 

 

~ Constantia ~

 

Faith, revisited

Heartache, my Constance.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Constantia II ~

 

The vivid gesture of victory

Flickers with pathetic clarity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Atrophia ~

 

With every truth-bearing admission

That finds its way to heaven

Another greed-driven sentiment

Bloats the heart with questions.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Solus ~

 

Beyond the sapphire complexion

Ridden with endearment

A semblance of a fractured moment

Etches poetically into lost time.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Insomnia ~

 

Dissembling the puzzle

With tortured breath

Perpetual beginnings

Renders false destinies.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Desiderium ~

 

The silken veil ascends

Dreams left undisturbed

Bosoms still wet with dew

Masked with a scent of allure.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Nysa ~

 

Shards of light sublime

Pirouettes on the seared dunes

A matrimony of young spirits

Glide into the gleaming horizon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Donatus ~

 

Faith tied with a ribbon

Head bowed in contemplation

As the soul searches beyond

Senses rouse frustration.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Eulalia ~

 

As hours amend each dying hour

Irrelevance blends into oblivion

In wait of an apparition beneath the moon

Consciousness wilts as desires bloom.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Hevel ~

 

Certainty ascends like a plume of smoke

Consequence bears no resemblance to hope

The gleaming peripheral allures distant glances

Bound onto ourselves with muted wishes.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Hyakinthos ~

 

Curiosity multiplies with every conquest

Yet passiveness has never strayed far

In search of another truth

This chair has never moved.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Arimathea ~

 

Daylight seeps in and fills

These walls with momentary light

The warmth becomes a memory

As dust settles on footprints.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Vespasanious ~

 

Love’s conquest lies in its defeat

Its crowning glory; a veil of absence

With confessions, soft cheeks redden

A union sealed with remembrance.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Zephyros ~

 

I can feel her breath

 In every recollection

A turmoil of sentiment

Plunders inside this chrysalis.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Castanea ~

 

I turn to myself and not to God

With every anguish to Him I place

And in seeking reason

I flee from conviction.

 

 

 

 

 

~ Myroxylon ~

 

Will my ending

Extract pity or humour

Would this inevitability stem

From misunderstanding?

 

 

 

 

 

~ Buxus ~

 

 

Nurtured emotions

Like swollen buds

Sway in the heat

Waiting to unravel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Cerasus ~

 

 

Hypnotized by cinders

Caressed by flames

Eyes sweep across

Her desert  landscape.

 

 

 

 

~ Canto ~

 

 

My hands have touched God’s affinity

Yet where is the cross that bears his divinity

My flesh, an emblem

My mind, its keeper.
