Absence of World Love

I live in absence of world love,
I stand convicted of your government war,
Bullets of poverty tear flesh while men in suits reign,
We ask for change,
Simple change,
Change of the basic,
No more children dying,
Let heal all for free,
Break down the walls of hate and allow love to play judge,
I am tired of your warrior sunshine that burns my face,
I am tired of headlines demanding I face the killings,
If I stand convicted of these charges so shall you…

There is too much pain,
Speeding on the rails of this New York train,
I feel the hungry,
I sense the desperate,
And I sit with the near insane,

All around,

From places,
Five boroughs,
Park Avenue,
Across the Hudson,
All leaving traces,

Of what,
How do I,
I live in the cut…

Tango dancing - Vincent and Maryline

Dark alley hunt,
The predators are out tonight,
Some swing in their zoot suits,
While others swing gold chains from their hips,
It’s a tango of desire,
Dirty deeds with dirty people,
Vicars and such praying for souls,
But we dance – all to close,
Body to body sharing the sweat of a dance,
The possibility of romance,
But we are Tango slaves,
Chained to the heat of our sway,

I dare you,
I scare you,
I wont share you,

Blended pain,
So insane,
What a shame,

Tall tree,
Bird free,
Ignore me,

Love torn,
Hate born,

Shame, Shame,
True, True,
Flee, Flee,
All Gone!

I Feel Black

I feel black,
Like stepped on coal,
In my heart lives a hole,
I dance no more or ever coming back,
That lie of yours brought me a heart attack,
I’m just your Persian baby,
But with you it’s always maybe,
Step back,
Before I attack,
Once again you drive off in your old Cadillac…

Black Swan Lake

Gold ray blistering to my skin,
Heat of the candle shinning with in,
Virgin heart but sinner with in,
Lay down your wepons and try it again,

Blue sky fighting the cloud,
Black music Tango dancing loud,
Like Christ, I own my own shroud,
Tune your guitar and lets play it proud,

Winter near its chilling end,
Change of season and so change of friend,
Like a kalediscope my abstract tries to blend
But it’s only a hand i can lend…
