Remaining

 

Did I die deep for your eyes?
Did I die deep for every smile
That you wore on your face?

Then I look back into the past
Finding a girl along her innocence;
Where she was running, on the field;
Where she was bathing, on the river bank.
Here you are, when you were young;
There you grow old as the long time comes.
Hearts, born, beat, gone, lost with their names.
Whales, breath, swim, never fly, keep silent in their throats.
Beauty’s still, in the cache of my feelings.
What’s about now? Rain drops. Wet all.
Make me wait like a sailing ship
On the Frankenstein’s loveroute.

Fog

 

Found your face in my brain
Mouth spoke words said by cain
Vengeance bore a sword-cut
On the heart being drained

Paths ran through thirsty soil
Cracked the scene of life’s coil
Poor shy God planted seeds
Orc devils brought up dreams

I put scare deep in throat
Swapped my tongue for ship’s wheel
Sea monsters casted storms
Sunk my fate; ends my race.

Where I am. Who am I?
Heard a murder. Here’s a knife.
On its blade, blood went dry.
Reflects sin on sky curve.

History came from kills.
And lasts when all the eyes shut.
Tell me softly you’re a proof.
Of a willing love was died.

 

Long

 

I felt that I was old.
But heart still quickly beats as she touches love.
Love is everywhere;
Is there, is here, growing up as long as my hair can be,
So much beautiful like your smile you gave to me.

You’re young, ‘neath the stars but above the waving leaves on the top of woods.
Always be the furthest horizon I wanna paint.
I wanna draw some lines and a circle,
And colorize ’em with red, orange, yellow and violet.
A piece of poem I will make aside.
Drops of rainfall will blur your eyes.
Faces will go evanescing behind forgotten walls.
Figures will be engraved into ghostly winds.
Voices will melt like southern ices.
But colors of memories last forever.
And strokes of love round ever.
Smoothly as sands.
Glossily as bubbles.
In the sunbeam.

 

Something’s gone

 

Nothing’s gone.. Nothing’s gone..
Sometimes asking myself for what I desire the most.
It’s not the life I’m living in.
It’s not the raising way of truth I did.
It’s not the responsibility I got inside.
A calm-down heart was tied by blood.
A ruggy road I must go on.
People said what I’ll do.
People do what I never heard.
All oceans are hiding on hills.
Store fishes’ minds in holes of death.
Where struggle for existing is not worthwhile.
How did shores lose their beauties in sands.
Stars lost the mirror of justice; badness blooms.
Evils will be waking up at the trench of Mariana.
And handing on the dignity of my earth.
Nothing’s gone.. Nothing’s gone..

 

Separation

 

You step like you stepped
Far away and forever
Dreams and separations
Turning right, turning left
On the endless circle road
Of a thousand miles in love

I’ve got a perfect sign of hope
But it don’t lead to anywhere I know
I go. I go. Til’ leaves fall yellow
Then I take rest in the rear of peace
Where a river bleeds out its hurt
When the silence swallows all night’s cries

 

Rồi anh sẽ quên được em thôi

 

Này nhé cuộc đời, chôn chặt nhé:
Điệp khúc tình yêu chẳng ai nghe.
Buồn ơi cũng thế, nhanh tay giấu:
Cho khỏi lụy ai những đêm hè.

Rồi ta sẽ sống trong niềm nhớ,
Ký ức đong đầy mỗi giấc mơ,
Ước ao ngày trước đem cất giữ,
Trái tim rồi đây hóa dại khờ.

Hôm nay mưa rơi đông kín ngõ,
Chút nắng len qua chẳng kịp vàng.
Ta cười, ta khóc, bao cảm xúc
Bỗng nhẹ tuôn trào khi thu sang.

Ta với mùa thu chẳng họ hàng,
Mà sao gắn bó, sao thân thiết:
Khi nào ta khóc, thu cũng khóc,
Khi ta cười, thu vẫn buồn mênh mang.


Vậy là đã hết, cơn mưa ấy.
Lang thang trên phố gió heo may.
Nguyễn Du, hoa sữa, bao giờ nở,
Lại đón em về trong giấc say.

 

Kẻ thất tình

 

Thôi rồi ta vỡ mộng
Nước mắt vỡ thành sông
Nỗi buồn trào thành bể

Cơn mưa nào nhẹ ướt lòng em
Bóng đêm nào che khuất lối nhỏ
Vỉa hè xa ôm ấp bước chân
Ánh điện vàng hắt hơi sương lạnh giá
Mang cô đơn chìm dần theo tiếng thở
..
… Mảnh trăng đã khuyết đến tận cùng
Thôi giờ hồn ta đành tắt lịm
Trốn trong góc phố
Để mặc cơn mơ

*

Biết nói gì đây nhỉ
Để khỏa lấp nỗi buồn
Em không cần tôi nữa
Nhẹ nhàng bỏ ra đi

Để lại mối tình si
Từ giờ thoi thóp thở
Thôi nô đùa vĩnh viễn
Không nấc nghẹn một lời

Em đã đi thật rồi
Mang theo hết mùa nắng
Và cả những ngày mưa
Cho con tim trống vắng

Buồn ở nơi xa lắm
Ngơ ngác ngắm trời chiều
Em như là xa lắm
Dù vừa ở đây thôi…

*

Chưa có bao giờ buồn như hôm nay
Mây gió xa rồi còn tôi nơi đây
Ngu ngốc dại khờ tìm trong cơn say
Bao nhiêu yêu dấu thôi đã vội bay
Thương tiếc ngổn ngang rơi rớt qua ngày.
