Under the Surface

Deep down there are implications of things
seemingly hidden and yet sharply expressed,
proofs that the heart in fact heavily sings,
is signaling more than by voice addressed.
Carvings of pain, a self-punishment stressed,

My Love Isn’t Light

My love isn’t fading
like clouds in the sun.
Like a rock with some grading,
it cannot be shun.
It stands cold at the top,
any fire at its feet.
Its streams won’t dry up
in the drought that they meet.

My love is for you
to hold with

had been snitching the song of my heart

a first shot of sorrow passed
and many more would follow

held off by my syllables

hoping to grow, get some kind of worth
to stand upright, have your new leaves uncurled,
moving straight up from the fragile and furled.
For some it

This was in Phnom Pehn, on an ordinary day, and this image is what hit me when driving by on my way to a market. I could still draw the scene of her serene body, the monk and the traffic passing by.

Sure, I do like to smile at the world too. This poem however was written to express how I felt about raped women being condemned.

This poem depicts the feelings a drawing gave me, trying to put myself in the place of the drawn figure and its shadow.
