February Blues

  1   What We See and What We See Not

The sun’s in the south would I see
It’s only been daybreak
And the sparrows are yet to scatter
The morning starts with the unusual

I see the moon turns black
It looks it has been burnt with defeat
In all its cycle what we do is what we would not
And what it would not, is what we do

The peace is tailed to the dove’s ass
Like an endless tail
But now it cannot even fly, no wonder
The tail is cut anytime with no afterthought

The relationship is overwhelming
You and I and us and them
We are like we are ever dreaming
And it is never real

Like the sun rising from the south
Like the black moon charred with impossibilities
Wise men are wrong, we can only imagine
The impossibilities ever prevail.


  2   Auf Wiedersehen

Never will I make the call
It is only you — only you can wave
Your hand
You can only sing the song so long
It’s only true you can take no more
It’s only true in me the emptiness is only apparent
Even if you only live for a century
Make only a day more for me
In unasked expression
I will only hold, no matter what
No matter, the living
No matter, the dying
That’s how I want to leave only the world
And persist only the feelings forever and a day.



The number to see the light is never coming!
