POEM: THE NAG- AWAY



What is absolute perfection?
Why am I always in thought of what to think?
What I tend to do is what I feel is right
Who I really am is what I spend every waking day discovering
How I feel is the rhythm my heart beats to
When I choose to cry is when I should be strong
When I hold back the tears is when I should cry..

Why I won’t let go is how fragile my heart is
What I cannot understand is how normal life can be
Things I cannot see are right there in front of me
Those I cannot reach, I search desperately for
People I laugh with, I should chastise
Moments I should capture, I’m lost
Memories I should hold dear, I forget
Memories I should forget, I recall
Times I should live, I’m cold
Times I should be silent, I’m bold
Things I should straighten out, I get tangled in
Times I should get entangled, I shy away
Times I should be serious, I play
Times I’m to play, I get serious
Focus is one difficult task
Discipline far off as dusk
Times I should speak up again, be bold, I bluff
Times I should console, I’m weak
When I’m consoled, I dwell in denial
When I wish to be spontaneous
I have to remain in control
When I choose to act, it’s in vain
When I don’t, I’m in pain
What is constantly in my mind is clear
Why then does my life remain blurry?
All I ever wanted is happiness
What I see each passing day is faux
Promising humans somehow
 End up tormenting

If only you’d see me standing here
Maybe, just maybe, every other thing would
String together
And make more sense than I choose to care

Why should one feel so lonely
In a world full of beautiful people?

And in three hundred and twenty-ten words
Nothing is not unclear

SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN

seven minutes in heaven;
seven minutes counting
heart beats by the second.
six minutes in heaven;
all the while tapping feet
on shaky wooden floorboards
in nervous delight.

five minutes in heaven;
five minutes counting
down to reality:
a beastly, slimy one.
four minutes in heaven;
wondering if by chance
or luck or grace,
a glimpse of an angel
 would suffice.

three minutes in heaven,
and lo a ladybird atop
your nose tickles,
dances, wiggles, jiggles,
then away,  flies.
two minutes in heaven,
two minutes or the next,
daydreams finally might come
to be:
visions of sunny skies,
silly side aching laughs_
chocolatey gums,
all on display
for my ever aching eyes.

a minute left in heaven
the last, the longest,
the shortest it seems,
the last before you wake
and stare at
the computer screen
in a crowded
noisy bureau,
someplace.

you sigh.
"of course it was unreal."

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…
