Not some: http://youtu.be/P5MOFzV6_oA




i want to see faces
with no traces
of the places
they're from

you're from here
i'm from there
this isn't fair
its dumb

my castle is tall
your portion is small
get against the wall
you bum

we shouldn't use pigment
to lable indignant
our souls get malignant
and numb

if we could build paradise
it would have to be nice
don't even think twice
just come

violence will stall
prejudice will fall
there will be justice for all
not some

I've written the lyrics to songs (being a lyrical poet), will that qualify?, because I'd post them here but not on a site such as youtube.

Broken voice: http://youtu.be/OBA3K8Olxg4

It seems I've written a guitar part that my fat fingers are having trouble with
I might update this if I can play it better be for the comp ends


my heart is thin
I can't let you in
our love is over
before it begins

fractures and slices
from the pain of love's vices
dulled to the feelings
and the taste of what life is



the broken voice it
only in dreams
sings

lifted safely
on unconscious
wings

of joy and love it
can speak of these
things

the broken voice
only in dreams
sings


fearless and tearless
traits i'd hold dearest
but sorrow and doubt
are the things I have nearest

of all joy i'm bereft
this shell i have left
empty and heartless
no risk of theft



the broken voice it
only in dreams
sings

lifted safely
on unconscious
wings

of joy and love it
can speak of these
things

the broken voice
only in dreams
sings

the lyrics in the song is a little different than the poem, cuz first i wrote the song only the first verse then it's kinda evolved into this poem

Grey Rain

Let
me find you
the unsung songs
hidden in the deepest sea
 
Bring you the wicked souls of night
split from the morning dew
 
Let’s sit on tombstones and sing to the remains in the grave
Feel the cold rain drops on the faces while we look up at the grey  
 
Come with me sweet princess lets burn down more cathedrals
Walking through the flesh of the young bodies with their clerical wardrobes
 
Smoke mist up the atmosphere making a dream to celebrate our love
Let’s build a citadel for ourselves with the skulls and bones  
Decorate the walls with shades of skin tones
 
I will be the darkness to your light  
I will be the one to hold you tight  
I will be in the front row in your fight
 
Now sleep tight sweetie,  
and leave your
nightmares
to me

[verse one]
I still remember how lived as usually
I didn't even feel the light inside myself
Finally, I understand this curse
GOD! Why the fuck d'you send me to this earth

[chorus]
Father should have done what you said
Now it's all echoing in my head
Forgive me father I want my life to end
I wanna new LIFE! a life after death...

Song Lyrics:  I see you

Tell me how you feel about me    
Even though we might've just met.    
Where you're from and where you will be,  
And I'll tell you that I see you.    
   
If you ask me how I'm doing,    
And you hope I'll say I'm fine too,    
Let's pretend you're dying to know    
And I'll tell you that I see you.    
   
Rolling along, are we merely    
Rolling along, just to only    
See where it blows, anything goes,    
Sail the ocean, seasick motion.    
   
Walking the tide, shoes in our hands,    
You've got a taste, a frosty brew    
While I kick at crabs at my feet    
Till the moment when I see you.    
   
Passing the time, are we merely    
Passing the time, just to only    
Keep us apart, no heart-to-heart,    
Skip the factors, we two actors    
   
Sit 'neath a tree sharing the shade,    
Clearing your throat just like before,    
Combing my hair, don't have it made    
For the moment when I see you.

This is a humorous song I wrote, a take on some cultures that when you're greeted, instead of giving a list of how you're doing, you simply reply "I see you."  I love that.    
   
The song has a cadence, a meter where each line throughout is 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4. Stanzas 3 & 5 are the refrains.

I love it. Yes ... has humorous, rollicking meter, but is still very playful and romantic. I also appreciate your comments in italics about 'see[ing] you!'

Divinity


awake!
my birth has come
a first-born flower in April’s soaking rains

winter (has passed)
accursed and numb
just one more hour and my blood would’ve surely drained

rejoined (at last)
a sacred sum
she adorns her bower to a sweet dharmic refrain

like the ancient cycles of a trinity
deem the woman divinity

I wait!
but night never ends
for it is her love to which I rise and fall

I say my prayers and my rosary
I deem the woman divinity

Do you mean posting it on youtube?  I don't know how that would work even though I've done song/lyric collaborations in the past, so please drop me a note with your plan and I'm open to the possibilities.  

I look forward hearing from you.  Thanks!

Though I ain’t much of a singer or guitar player I have a dozen or so things up here  on DUP as well as Youtube.  Kind of punky one man garage band sort of stuff.

RUBENESQUE

Some fashion model billboard
High over streets of Broadway
Skinny as Errol Flynn's sword
Looking for lovers to slay

Agents breeding skeletons
In fabricating fashion
Laughing over gelatin
Ignoring pounds of passion

Chorus

Beauty is thick in my eye
Skin and bones will never do
The girl I want I can't lie
She's a BBW

She's Rubenesque
She's Rubenesque

Got lost on a luscious curve
Sweetest space I can be found
In a dream I don't deserve
Living heaven in the round

Bodies must be bigger
To house hearts of super size
Art worships a full figure
Ain't no consolation prize

Repeat Chorus

More than personalities
More than pretty faces
Everything you need
In all the right places

She's Rubenesque

Sad that haters hand out hurts
To angels born to be held
But bullies get just desserts
Bad karma's gonna get quelled

Repeat Chorus
