Dynasty Of Arrogance
The night is taken by the rain.
Someone came out of the mirror
in my lone bedroom and said:
'I want to stay awake with you! '
It is dark outside and flooding insane.
The high ambition is down to the knee
And a dynasty of arrogance is diminished
like a straw going down the stream.

Those Days Would Come
Surely would come those days
At the midnight, still
In the moon light, Songs would start again,
you and me
Would bathe together
until our eye-balls grow red
And our heads turn green;
