Disorder

As long as the sun continues to rain

And the rain thoughtlessly continues to sun,

Tell the father not to let go of his reign

So as to reshape and chastise his son.


If the mother's whip should go slacked

And her sweet wrapped words convey no lesson,

Won't she be desolate at last from her lacks?

Of loosing her heart to the world suffices.


Tell the son to haste the ride back home

His father await to see his lonely face,

His mother afraid to die with unburied bones.

What keeps our son from home is the worldly gaze.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
