Sweet Bitter

You have seen the face
painted with the color of darkness
some inches down the neck

but there is a pain
which doesn't pain bitterly
it is sweet

this pain is born from that sorrow
which once
sung by me
heard by me
understood only by me

at the sun
day after day
with a strange kind of patience

No Fixed Address

what did I get by touching the womb of life
what comes and what goes
the tears I cried
came back as a mystic smile of life

the love sick tune of the nightingale
the burning midnight
just like a violin in tune
no nothing is left inside

I wear a song in my torn heart
loneliness o loneliness
i wear the ornament of desire
in the wide awake nights

what did I get?
what sheds and what blooms
whatever I have lost
become a malicious smell of past
