Born again

Every night
after a day of fights
as energy tides
rise and falls
when i enter my chamber of dreams
it is too weary, i die asleep.
many a dream it creeps
into my conscious fields
merging with my magnetic seals
I enter the bed
all confused head
my days have gone
night is sweet
stars are bright
moon is a sight
yet, my thoughts are a weight
in the middle of life
amidst bleeding strife
I am begging for energy
yes, my cells are on revolt
i am dwindling like a colt
my racing sperm is killed
stirring soul is tilled
I have lost my blood
blood of my hood
oh no, blood of my hold
my inner hold of pure gold
seed of my creator's mould
suddenly i am alien to this world
i dont know where it went cold
your words are hollow
they were sweet and aglow
when i was in my hormone's blow
as age has crept
emotions are swept
i miss me, kisses not adept
my body is weightless adrift
winds of monsoons they gift
me shores or sinking drifts
every dawn born again
my living urge sapped and strained
i seek the reason for life
as i go down,
diving to touch the bottom
but my masks are bordedom
blues i cant touch
bluer i never more
y live, when death is sweeter
y die when life comes again.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
