Lesser Gods Laugh

Poem By Luis Gil de la Puente

Secret stings make them hurt each other.
What lights the fire will not extinguish it.
The flame cannot be stolen.
Desire will condense in their blood
while lesser gods laugh.

((7) News On The Move

Coming back home is like opening the doors again,
like getting in the past with the hope it might change,
But sometimes the future gets there first
And sees us coming.

((6) The Elite Of The Pure

To the chosen,
Those of evil stare,
Who spread weeds,
And administer venom,

((11) Friends

Wholesome hearts,
well deserved friendship,
good chunks of truth
wrapped in cigarette smoke.

((7) Burning, Burning, Burnt

Let´s find new chalk
for the spring coming,
burning ideas,
more wood, please.

(2) No Mirrors For The Broken Hearted

No mirrors for the broken hearted.

You are still hurt.

((4) Keeping Company

My eyes keep getting misty this winter.
So much quiet cold at night
just to wait for you in the morning.
