Above The Rate


Hold on, my eager mind
Drink up your wine
Suck up your whine
Don't be caught in jealousy
Don't get too greedy
For the world
You could only see
For the memory
That shared glimpse only

Calm down, my racing heart
Wake up tomorrow
Swallow your sorrow
Don't go running wild
Don't fall to the dark
For every smile
You count to miss
For every joy
Seems out of reach

Stay away, my hunger soul
Tame your singing
Keep inside your ring 
Don't be too curious
Don't probe someone's business
For the secret
You not meant to know
For the feeling
Too dangerous to grow

Set low, my burning fire
Clear your distance
Take your silence
Don't be tempted by seduction
Don't follow your evil
For the desire
That becomes insatiable
For the madness
Each time creeps deeper

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
