Gibberish

I am aroused by every syllable escaping her lips
She talks in riddles
She mumbles the truth
She exhales, I inhale
The pothole of a junkie

A shattered skeleton, I fall
A disabled man, I fall
A modern Sisyphus, I fall

Rise!
We will rise as the sun sets
We are creators and the night breeds inspiration,
So meet me under the moonlight and leave your mask at home

Home is where the hurt is
Do look back but don’t stare for too long
Now close your eyes and breathe
Breathe slowly…

She pours out herself into the darkness
She moans the truth, her truth
I whisper the truth, my truth

A revived skeleton, I stand
A disabled man, I stand
A modern Sisyphus, I stand!

Now shut your mouth against mine, for there is no truth; only gibberish

Thus spoke IbnRishdi

Smoke

If I knew what she wanted
I would’ve told her

She lights a cigarette
Smoke fills her lungs
Clouds gather inside her head
She sees nothing
Hears nothing
Speaks nothing
Knows nothing
But she is everything
Everything

The universe, the stars, the eternal recurrence
The love that revives and kills
The breath which poisons and arouses
The force which destroys and builds
Everything

And as I drift away
I always find my way back
Smoke
I can smell her getting closer
Smoke tangles with her breath
The scent of lust and love
The scent of freedom and slavery
I walk on her waters
I drown every time
The painful lust
The sinking anchor

I look at her and ask her
What do you want

She lights a cigarette
Smoke fills her lungs
Clouds gather inside her head
She sees nothing
Hears nothing
Speaks nothing
Knows nothing
But she is everything
Everything
