STITCHES IN SILENT HEART
Who can insert curved needles?Stitching silent heart
Starting every morning
Standing endless hours at night!
Imprisoning self in pristine placeOpening chest by sow
Facing heart cutting
Fountains of arterial bow
Cutting… stitching… knotting!As if is endless race
Cutting what? The heart…
Stitching what? The heart…
Valves, veins, arteries in henceLooking to beating heart...
Frightened, for endless hours in raw
Stopping the beats, by scientific law
Starting endless stitches by hair tread to strawClosing fleshy heart, shocking- to beat re pulse
Silent heart can’t feel what happened in bypass
But surgeon’s heart in by pass-no one counts his pulse!
That’s heart surgeon’s lifeEvery day new lesson in the same class!
Can every man understand the fame and fuss?
They can be saints, but become insane in jazz!
HEART BEAT RECEDE
Heart is in beatCan never rest
One minute fast
On minute slow
Continuously on go
Heart is in beatIn love indeed
That never ends
Heart is in beatOne can not feel the beats
Until love speaks and asks to seed
After seed grows reaches giant plant
It slows in beat...slows
Heart is still in beatDrunken wine of life
Wants to recede
I feel no beat!
“HANDS” SAYS THE MAN
Hands speaks the manHands in hearts revive new life
Hands build’s towers of man
Hands is the God of man
Hands breathes the manHands hold the gesture up
Hands creates every tine
Hands is the life of man
Hands that writesHands that plays
Hands that carves
Activating desires of life
Hands deliver newborn aliveTo give him breathe giving the care
To grow to a man and have the hands
To recreate survive building many hives
Remedied by scientific handsTo alive failed hearts
If can’t the spirit will fly
Hands will sand the man
We pray to every childTo have hands that speaks
Give gifts to life
