My Piero'm

Poem By Gencay

It has been raining continuously for two days,
On such days, as soon as I get back from work, I go to my room, smoke a few cigarettes and go to bed immediately. I neither find the strength to read a book nor the appetite to eat. I am not talking about sleeping, no, of going under the blanket and watching my thoughts for hours and those long dreams I had, impossible to come true. I am hungry but I cannot eat, I wonder but I cannot read, I just dream and think. Countries where we were not, impossible seas, impossible greens, and tales, stories and events that never existed anywhere, I imagine that I left this life for a moment, maybe even never existed in this life, I always live there, in the lands of my dreams. But the sounds of rain and wind, cars and people coming from the outside suddenly pull me out of my peaceful and happy land and throw me like a garbage into this despicable land where I am unhappy and unhappy, as if your place is not palaces, heavens, places of peace and happiness., four-walled dungeon with this blanket under which you lie! they say. Where you have to work, eat, drink, sleep, wake up even more painful, one day you must die, lonely, restless, bored, overwhelmed, this is the place you don't like! they say. This despicable place of wars, blood, sickness, pain, suffering, separation, rape, injustice and tears, you deserve! they say...
Maybe I'll make it like that... What is the fault of rain and wind?
What's wrong with the noises made by lifeless mechanical cars? I can't say the same about people, but they definitely have a fault!

How nice it is to sleep...
What a beautiful thing to dream...
What a bitter to think, what a sweet thing at the same time...
Am I right, Piero?

Comments about My Piero'm

Very good words. But I'll add that even though it looks worthless a little meaning to it changes the whole scenario. A service to poor, love and care to dear ones makes us to crave to live more to do more. Just a thought.

Get Away From Me

He has a speed of words, higher than the speed of sound
Everyone can benefit from it
Worldly things are silent
They talk.

World! World!

That is my life
Connected to respirator, low eyes
That is my life
African skinny boy.

Forest Of Question

The mystery underlying the earth
There are as many mysteries above you
Mind-blowing things
He is asleep, waiting to be awakened.

Pray to god

You are far from thoughts
And it is as close as thought takes action.

I'm Sleeping Life.

I like to write poetry, but...
Sometimes my thoughts run away from me
Sometimes like a butterfly
They're on my shoulder, whispering in my ear
