You and Me 18.07.2006
by Altawell

Do you know what the man in the dream told me?
Do you know what the winter rain showed me?
Do you know why an angel with your aura
visited me?

No “reason” anyone will know or understand!

but …you and me!

As the stars in the heaven shoots and travel
far away…
to the tune of our songs, but, no one can ever hear or see
as everyone pass us by with deafness, blindness
to the sound, to the light
to their souls
to their lives

No “reason” anyone will know or understand!

but …you and me!

In the darkness when you whispered and I smiled
to what you said!
when your lips touched my lips in a stormy crazy way
I forgot who am I
I forgot where am I
I forgot what to say
As my mind suddenly stopped …and died
straight away!

As the soldier who really died with no cry
left his boots and uniform so determine not to
die
as we watched him far away beyond the truth
that is how why we know what is the “truth”
it is the secret
in our spirits
in our hearts

No ”reason” anyone will know or understand

but …you and me

Do you know what the waves in the sea told me?
Do you know what the sun at dawn showed me?
Do you know why a baby in the crowed smiled
and smiled …at me?

No ”reason” anyone will know or understand

but … you and me!

A View
of
A Grey Silent World



Like an image
Of black and white photo
Structured as a storyboard
Resemble a hospital ward
Everything silent
Everything dead
In a grey empty corridor
Stillness is the form
Silence is the norm
With dark shadows
Fixed
On every wall
In an endless
Timeless
Zone

Heart In A Glass


Glass in a glass
In a shape of a heart
Distorted the face
Lengthen the fingers
Created madness
From a crack in a glass

The pink dream
Connection
In a blue water
Reflection
Shattered reality
As seen via clouded
Sleepy half closed
Eyes

In a black sheeted
Bed
The old maid
Powdered her face
For one more chance
To find the long missing
Long searched
Dreamt about
The other half

Glass in glass
Voidance of love
Emptiness in nest
Making the heart
Weeping
Leaving the head
Nothing but with an old
Love story
Trapped in a
Skull
Trapped in a
Glass

The Child, The Hooded Clock & The Rain

Shades fall on a beige wall
A child smile in his sleep
As the rain
Begin to fall
The Hooded Clock strike
Again
And
Again

The child cry with
No tears
While the clouds
Moves slowly
Trying hard to hide
The midday
Sun
As being watched
By a priest and a tired
Nun

The church yard holes
Filled with rain
The old red bus
Arriving “now” but
Late again
Stopping so close
To the old people home
Crowed of people
Rushed towards it
Trying to catch it
Trying to avoid the
Heavy
Rain

The shades on the wall
Quickly change
As the old man’s coat
And the lady’s hat
Moved away
Feeling cold
Covering
More
The sleeping child
As if he sense
Someone close
His round face
Mechanically change
As he Smiles
Once again

The goose bumps
Cover her skin
While she is shivering
She put on
Her red blouse
And then switch back
The heater on

The Hooded Clock strike
Again
And
Again

One minute later
Everything is peaceful
And
Quiet again
Apart from
The heavy
Falling
Rain

In The Silence Of The Night 10.07.2006

In the silence of the night
I thought and reflected about you and
wondered what to write…

In the silence of the night
Fox kits roamed and played
at my back-garden, peacefully, in
the darkness….

In the silence of the night
I called your name
but the sound of the echo
left me with no doubt
that your heart
your spirit
meant only for one special “love”
always in your heart
you used to search about….

In the silence of the night
freeing your soul
for that union of our love
is “the” everything, is “the”
eternal, for our two souls
as they unite
In the silence of the night….
