Midnight Crowd

Bustle and hustle
beeps and bombs
of the silent skies
which cries
in my eyes
like lighted lamp
with the breaded vamp
of the clock strikes eleven
oh me the heaven
will sleep soon
let me hear it again
nomadic views
transperent hues
birdly crows
vows and hows
of being that man
or woman in the car
of drenched wet seats
like messed up beats
joyous highs
mented minds of burned ashes
smoke
and dark
yes thats not
the limped packet
of cookies
i choose
with milked acid
of white plain dark
skinned men
and the purple haze
and the blue star gaze
between the sheets
shifting breaths
mumbled jumbles
of go-bye bus
meanwhile hush
drops down shadow
no mere window
black
pitch
swan
ditch
donkey
yes
thats true
my dreams
being able to miss and miss you.

Wonders ...

i wonder why
it feels like a raining sky
as if the world is wet
no not with tears
with happiness..
i wonder why
it feels the dark sky
gushes out its deepest purple
sworing the moon like the best of pearls
as if it is not the queen
but with her order - the
most precious of all .. that wonders
may be the gleamy pearlish light
sooths my eye to make me happy
and cry
tears of joy .. nature bestows
those flowers that smell of the happy hours of the day and night
i wonder why
i always am within those open windows
being softened by the harsh cold things of life
and warmed by the hands of those
who i really care and love and protect
green leaves
orange umbrella
red candy
kindling blue of that last candle i have
to save for my candle-lit dinner
my wonders keep wondering
i really wonder how
