The Constipated Scientist

nobody said it was easy

it's such a shame for us to fart

nobody said it was easy

no one ever said it would be so hard

***

Sorry, Chris Martin, I can't help it. I just think it's too punny not to share, plus it's been stuck in my gut for so long now. Peace!

Because...

If you love my smile

I hope you won't forget that

I'm often in tears

No Worries

What is it you fear?

I love you and that won't change.

I am always here.

As Told

The stars are spread out

All staring, all watching

The moon aglow

Sun shining over

Also staring, also watching

They fill up the space

And in their multitude

The light won't tell me what I need to know

I just want to see them sparkling over the waves

As they unfurl over my ocean tides

I just want to see the glimmer on the ripples

Lapping over my shore in the silence

Brushing past the vast realm

But there they are, the hosts of them

Staring and watching my eyes glimmer

Light touching un-flowing tears in my solitude

Even under the shade of trees

They hide me from the blessed beams

And the leaves rustle, the critters chirp

They all make noise, and they listen

They mask the faint singing

I only want to stay still and say a prayer

But they came to listen, they're awake

They are staring, they are watching

And dreams come to take their place

I won't ever be alone

And it's meant to be this good

As long as I do as I am told

But I want to listen and I should

And I want to stay as they are

Staring and watching, near and far

But time's clutch has locked its hold

I am shaking to my bones

Some whispers are too strong,

Unmuffled amidst other voices

Here come dream world's sweet caresses

Closing my eyes, bidding farewell to the cold

Now, now, I’ll just do as I am told

The Air Is Not Empty

The air is not empty

It is as misty as the fog on a cold day

The breeze carries a weight as it passes by

Ever so swiftly

Familiar sounds filling the atmosphere with music

Heavier than a whisper, lighter than a murmur

It comes with the whistle of the wind

The air is not empty

It is as dusty as the desert storm on a hot day

The breeze carries a warmth as it passes by

Ever so elusive

Familiar voices filling the atmosphere with longing

Louder than a whisper, softer than a murmur

It comes with the whistle of the wind

I hear my name being called

Repeatedly

I say the words I wanted to say

To the breeze that passes by

Ever so swiftly

Ever so elusive

The atmosphere is filled with something indescribable now

Thicker than a whisper, thinner than a murmur

My answer

It comes with the whistle of the wind

The air is not empty

It is as unnoticeable as my breathing on an ordinary day

FYI

Every star I knew threw their light upon you

when we met

and from then on,

all that you are

gathered in a single place.

You cannot hide anymore, precious.

No, not from me.

Sorry, dear.

All thoughts of you collect in a sacred shrine

that I always stumble upon.

I can find you even with my eyes closed.

You know it's true.

Yes, you do.

Cheese

Say it.

Click!

I like it warm and melting

As every burst of flavor tickles my buds

Appetizingly irresistibly delectable touch

I see it dripping, breaking form

Browning, leaving the norm

Bubbling, foaming, rupturing core

Dollop straight into your craving mouth,

Pull slowly

Rolling, thinning, precious sliver

It goes on and on and on...forever?

Snip!

I like it frozen, cold and hard

Scraping with the knife, I love the sound

Effort, patience, persistence

Lick it, bite it in small amounts

Take it down with a gulp of wine

Feel each tiny sensation on your tongue

Salty goodness massaging your throat

Distinct taste and aroma filling the mind

Can't help reminisce the old times

Ah, it doesn't seem to end

One more powdery indulgence before it ends

No more!

Yes?

I'm broke

And I want expensive cheese.

Nothing

You hope something's true

Until you accept the truth

Isn't what you hoped

Thirst

A call of water on a wasteland

Striking the chord of unknown instrument

Tracing paths on an abandoned road

Covered in a blanket

Of forgotten leaves

Still drawing tired feet

Closer to the tree

Standing, but on an arched back

Looking up with downtrodden eyes

Incredible determination

For someone who's dying

Looking to heaven, breathing

Its last breaths used carefully

To recite the unheard of

Love, in its weakest, becoming stronger

Every second a realized vision

Branches outstretched

Worshipping the Creator

May the fruits still live through the drought

Small but growing

In a season of want

Tears drying before every drop

Harsh sunlight

Burning forehead, nose and brows

Rain, come once

The river flowing inside

Stays warm

But its time runs out fast

Its blood loss a spectacle

Painting death on the ground

Life is within each utterance

Dark clouds stare, looking glum

Adding to the hopelessness

Until the appointed time

The last tear fell before the faint drop

Of showers overhead

Life comes straight from heaven

And the downpour begins
