If Only

If only

While they depart, and still grieve you,
Three thoughts alone desires leave you -

Would have been,
Could have been,
Should have been...

A walk in the woods

A walk in the woods

Life could be lived

In the faster lanes;
Or could it just be
A walk in the woods?

Roof top summers,
Paper boat rains -
Life could be lived
Collecting childhoods.

However the dark skies
And the pale dots of white
Also play a role
In making his rhymes right,

And help him compose his epic
So faithfully they serve;

The most special stanza
The nearest to his heart,
All else being his work
The one that is his art,

That one he will keep,
The poet will ever reserve

-- For the stars who shine brighter.

However the broken doll
With its twisted arm
Is also cute
And has a charm,

And is the one the kid hugs
When she needs a loyal friend;

The gold and pink dress
Her favorite from the store
The one she loves best
The one they all adore,

That one she will give
When playing a game of 'Pretend'

-- To the dolls who look prettier.

By dreams -
Dreams of

I found
And saw

I bought
And soared.

If I let go
I fall faster.
If I hold on
I fall harder.

Gods are mighty and
Mean, arrogant, cruel;
But you are small and
Hence more nimble.

When they deny you joy
And bind you helpless,
Spite them by being
Happy nevertheless.

And when they play unfair
To your right of happiness too,
Steal the peace that wasn't
Ever meant for you.

Eldorado Fades (Eldorado IV)

Eldorado Fades

Eldorado, My love!
Stay for a while more.
Stay in my sight.
Stay, let them explore -
The green of your lands,
The yellow of your sun,
The red of your hills,
Blue skies like none.
Stay here while I die,
Come, let fall your golden locks,
My love! don't fade now,
Let me think these little thoughts.
While they slow my beating heart
And Gods claim their due
My love, let me fill it with
The golden sight of you.
Let me breathe in your air
Smile, this one last time,
As you've done for all poetry -
Pose, for this one last rhyme
Ah! I lose. I falter. I die.
But what matter it does.
My eyes shine with lyrical light
My heart with a golden buzz.
Don't spare your precious tears,
Don't blur my golden view -
All life is worth my love
A sight of golden you.
