chewing the philosopher's stone
in his mouth

there is a reason why most people
do not understand poems
somewhere along the way,
they lost their Soul, their humanity
and so their hearts
are simply not ready
for Poetry

why there are more thorns
than roses

how roses still bloom
despite the pain

Why do you close

"Why do you close your eyes

she bleeds

she bleeds poetry
in the dark

a sweet, beautiful heart
shattering, like an echoing kiss
from miles, and miles away

half body, whole soul

and every night, as she returns
to the moon with a poem
he returns to her in a dream.
