The Echo of the Highest Peak

(Oxymoron Poem)

 

 

We’ve been in the burning frost

of the highest peak to unlock

the open secrets, and to leave

the sweet sorrow. In my upward fall,

 

I told that imperfect evilness,

‘I want nothin’ more and ne’er again.’

 

I hung the immaculate word in that

eloquent quietness. I hung

the quietness in the air. I found

its own sense and the opposite.

 

The word and the quietness

were like the hole and the star.

 

In that spiritual freezer burning,

I found the insomniac dreams

of my destiny and the eerie

illusions of my twisted fate.

 

You made them become numb

feelings and vice versa much more

than a lyric song becomes musical

sounds to form a lyric song again.

 

In that magic realism, my silent scream

was moved into its echo to become

deafening silence forever. Fairly obvious,

the down climbing evilness echoed,

 

‘I want nothin’ more and ne’er again,

nothin’ more and ne’er again.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Object of Love

 

 

Love is not

what we are calling an object.

Yet, it is still an object.

It has functions & variables.

It is so fundamental

in the sense

of thinking

and builds peace.

 

Missing love is a suffering lion –

extended vowels

in the absence of The Lord.

 

Love needs shapes

to express itself –

wide, heavy words.

Sometimes, it continues

beyond the limits

in searching for happiness.

Maybe happiness is

a Bentham’s principle,

but not an extended illusion

in a dream-

pleasures, pains, sexuality, morality.

 

It is hedonistic when it doesn’t let us

realize what we ought to do

in order to be

what we need to be.

 

Love is an object

needing a language

to scream for freedom,

that kind of freedom giving

identity.

It is so ontic in the hands

of God

and makes us be children again-

His children.
