Simple Lyric - Poem by Brian Patten

When I think of her sparkling face
And of her body that rocked this way and that,
When I think of her laughter,
Her jubilance that filled me,
It’s a wonder I’m not gone mad.

She is away and I cannot do what I want.
Other faces pale when I get close.
She is away and I cannot breathe her in.

The space her leaving has created
I have attempted to fill
With bodies that numbed upon touching,
Among them I expected her opposite,
And found only forgeries.

Her wholeness I know to be a fiction of my making,
Still I cannot dismiss the longing for her;
It is a craving for sensation new flesh
Cannot wholly calm or cancel,
It is perhaps for more than her.

At night above the parks the stars are swarming.
The streets are thick with nostalgia;
I move through senseless routine and insensitive chatter
As if her going did not matter.
She is away and I cannot breathe her in.
I am ill simply through wanting her.

    Her wholeness I know to be a fiction of my making,
    Still I cannot dismiss the longing for her;
    It is a craving for sensation new flesh. The sense of wanting. tony

    He's sharing feelings I hope we all could relate to, but instead of singing " I got it bad and that ain't good, " he provides a pleasant read. Reply

Lyric Poems

  1. Lyric Written In 1830

    What means my name to you?...T'will die As does the melancholy murmur Of distant waves or, of a summer, The forest's hushed nocturnal sigh. Found on a fading album page, Dim will it seem and enigmatic, Like words traced on a tomb, a relic Of some long dead and vanished age. What's in my name?...Long since forgot, Erased by new, tempestuous passion, of tenderness 'twill leave you not The lingering and sweet impression. But in an hour of agony, Pray, speak it, and recall my image, And say, "He still remembers me, His heart alone still pays me homage."

  2. Lyric Of Love To Leah

    Come, my darling, let us dance To the moon that beckons us To dissolve our love in trance Heedless of the hideous Heat & hate of Sirius- Shun his baneful brilliance! Let us dance beneath the palm Moving in the moonlight, frond Wooing frond above the calm Of the ocean diamond Sparkling to the sky beyond The enchantment of our psalm. Let us dance, my mirror of Perfect passion won to peace, Let us dance, my treasure trove, On the marble terraces Carven in pallid embroeideries For the vestal veil of Love. Heaven awakes to encompass us, Hell awakes its jubilance In our hearts mysterious Marriage of the azure expanse, With the scarlet brilliance Of the Moon with Sirius. Velvet swatches our lissome limbs Languid lapped by sky & sea Soul through sense & spirit swims Through the pregnant porphyry Dome of lapiz-lazuli:- Heart of silence, hush our hymns. Come my darling; let us dance Through the golden galaxies Rythmic swell of circumstance Beaming passion’s argosies: Ecstacy entwined with ease, Terrene joy transcending trance! Thou my scarlet concubine Draining heart’s blood to the lees To empurple those divine Lips with living luxuries Life importunate to appease Drought insatiable of wine! Tunis in the tremendous trance Rests from day’s incestuous Traffic with the radiance Of her sire-& over us Gleams the intoxicating glance Of the Moon & Sirius. Take the ardour of my impearled Essence that my shoulders seek To intensify the curled Candour of the eyes oblique, Eyes that see the seraphic sleek Lust bewitch the wanton world. Come, my love, my dove, & pour From thy cup the serpent wine Brimmed & breathless -secret store Of my crimson concubine Surfeit spirit in the shrine- Devil -Godess -Virgin -Whore. Afric sands ensorcel us, Afric seas & skies entrance Velvet, lewd & luminous Night surveys our soul askance! Come my love, & let us dance To the Moon and Sirius!

  3. A Lyric Day

    I deem that there are lyric days So ripe with radiance and cheer, So rich with gratitude and praise That they enrapture all the year. And if there is a God b\above, (As they would tell me in the Kirk,) How he must look with pride and love Upon his perfect handiwork! To-day has been a lyric day I hope I shall remember long, Of meadow dance and roundelay, Of woodland glee, of glow and song. Such joy I saw in maidens eyes, In mother gaze such tender bliss . . . How earth would rival paradise If every day could be like this! Why die, say I? Let us live on In lyric world of song and shine, With ecstasy from dawn to dawn, Until we greet the dawn Devine. For I believe, with star and sun, With peak and plain, with sea and sod, Inextricably we are one, Bound in the Wholeness - God.

  4. Sad In Blue (A Lyric)

    Sad sad sad in blue For sad sad sad you The moon is all bluish tonight The night is all dark out side Nowhere to run Sad sad sad in blue Into the night hold me tight Love me babe I need some light What's wrong and what's right When shadows dwell and abide Sad sad sad in blue For sad sad sad you The moon is all bluish tonight Is there some star shoot in sight To wish upon For sad sad sad you Into the night take a flight Feelings, touch, everything out sight Love me with feelings ok Come come babe now closer stay Sad sad sad in blue For sad sad sad you The moon is all bluish tonight Is there some star shoot in sight To wish upon For sad sad sad you
