If Only They Knew


His mind in a state of the jungle
Roaring, perching, and hissing
Things ground to a halt
To the rivers the wind blew
Calmness of the sea from the blues
I watched as the tail flaps
The thinking machine working like a clock
The receptive organ so far away
Come down to earth
The container shaking
The clippers tightened
punches in the air
Where did the diamond in the sky go?

In the cool dark room stood diamond
Leaking water, like a running tap
The vibration coming through
I believe could move a statue
Like a warrior in sorrow
Words flows like arrow
Rants flows non stop.

Then I paused....

Diamonds in the dark
The guardian at sea
Both at a loss
hearts apart
One looks to the jungle,
the other hidden in secret

Paused again

If only they knew
Usain Bolt will be a joke
As they will gather momentum
To find solace
In the comfort of their zone

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
