what has happened?

wow!
some event/trip
that must have been
where did “we”
go?
was i there?
in thought
anyway?
(2 for yes?)
anyway
compare it,
the experience,
to the lengthiest piece
below.
funny stuff
isn’t it?
welcome back
i hope…

immediately following
one may recall
is in reference to
one of those
“conversations”
that was re-posted.

ahem…
not impressed then?
hmm…
guess i got you
and who knows what else
wrong…
to be clear
things i said
about my life
are obviously
true/factual…
as i’ve said
i can only imagine
how much better
all of this
could have been
if i actually
knew you better
but
we are victims
of a given set
of circumstances.
aren’t we?

Under the thatched roof
Of the mud hut
She reigned, as queen
And we spent our days
Working our garden
Casting a net
For fish
And doing those things
That may be considered
Work
Passersby may tell us
The occasional news
That the world burns
And at dusk we’d light
Our kerosene lamps
And keep them low
To reduce soot
And the danger of
Burning the place down
Except for under
The full moon
When enough light
Penetrates
The interior darkness
And let me gaze
On her face
In natural beauty
In the corner
On the floor
Is our bed
A few jute bags
Stitched together
And a couple more
Neatly folded
For pillows
There we sleep
Happy, nested
Or in the comfort
Of each other’s arms
Around us
There will be
The songs
Of the night
Mixed to a cacophony
That becomes
A lullaby to dulled senses
And settled thus
We drift off
Into a world
Previously known
But forgotten
Or else
Discover
A dream
Within a dream.

btw, whenever
there’s nothing here
(above…not even
“deleted” or “removed”)
it’s because
i could not bring myself
to believe
that anybody cares
and yes
it’s temporary
until…
not saying this
to provoke any
reaction
just thought
i’d make it known.

now
one would maybe
probably
possibly
likely
wonder…
why
does he not
seem upset
about the fact
that
one has been gone
for so long.
there’s an explanation
find out
next time…

peace.
