The Thoughts Within

A question
A conversation
A word
All provoke

An eye
A smile
A touch
All evoke

A tree
A fruit
A sea
All enthuse

A walk
A ride
A new place
All enthuse

You, Me
She, He

They, Us
All arouse

My muse is she
My stimulation is she
My revelation is she
All bring out the thoughts within

She is the earth
She is the moon
She is the people
She is life
She is everyday.

I Washed My Feet On The Shores Of Haifa

A midnight drive

A moonlit sky

An embrace between friends

I’m going to wash my feet on the shores of Haifa

A morning coffee

A warm breakfast

Conversations of stones built long ago

I’m going to wash my feet on the shores of Haifa

A circle of friends

A march of color

A tree to hug

I am going to wash my feet on the shores of Haifa

A walk on the beach

A long conversation

A discovery of friends

I’m washing my feet on the shores of Haifa

A child’s laughter

A meal of fish out of sea

A sunset from the old walls of Akka

I’ve washed my feet on the shores of Haifa

Another city away

A mustache or two of fun

A meeting of strangers

I’ve washed my feet on the shores of Haifa

A laugh, a smile, a twinkle in the eye

An inking on the heel

A sad goodbye

I’ve washed my feet on the shores of Haifa

A thought

An impulse

A reality

I washed my feet on the shores of Haifa

Erased

I want to erase you

From my memory

From my flesh

From my heart

From my life

You are now gone

Your hypocrisy the last straw

You said you loved me

But you chose to live a lie

A year I endured

And when my wings spread

You disappeared like the wind under them

You don’t realize that now I don’t need you to be there

You are not my wind

I don’t need you to pretend

I don’t want you near

I don’t want you far

I don’t want you

I will erase you

Make you a blank in my mind

No emotion

No touch

No smile

You are nothing much

Just a blank in the past

Where nothing is

I erase you

From my memory

From my flesh

From my heart

From my life

You are a blank stare

You are a superficial conversation

You are not

And that makes me so happy

No longer torn between wanting you and not

No longer longing for what can not

No waiting by the phone

No dreaming day and night

There is no more you

A blank

Erased
