|Juliet's Last Sonnet|
Awaken from her maker's poison
Reality's her nightmare's reason
To run away from tombs that cover
The lifeless body of her lover
Barefooted... So free to love again
Waiting for him with red cheeks of rain
"The Globe" is empty, Romeo's gone
In Stratford -on - Avon she's alone
A tourist's place - the guide is pointing
A holographic disappointing
Fragmented Fate of a lonely swan
A deja vue ... I might be the one...
The stage lights died, applause in echoes
The curtain falls on ghosts of heroes...
Ruins in Sandcastles
Scared to fall asleep
As tides rip open shelters
Of childhood castles......
Scared to lower bridge
As hopeful heart cries exposed
Under jogger's shoe...
Whales eco-locate my soul
Tacit castles in the dusk...
Homeless San Diego Freeway Five To Heaven
Invasion of tears on a lonely street
I crash spheres of sadness that burst with a sigh
There's no one to tear me apart I can meet?
..a Lexus is lost and the driver is shy...
The freezing orchestra plays in my head
Police sirens as one play with my memory
A voice seems to utter " They will give us bread !!!"
As tearing, lost souls head for the Crematory.
I dream I wake up as pure as a kid
"No More Tears" - a shampoo bottle promises in vain
This time though white traces of a salty skid
Releases my heart, my hopes and my pain...
