    The Absolute

    No mind, no form, I only exist;    Now ceased all will and thought; The final end of Nature's dance,    I am it whom I have sought. A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;    Beyond both knower and known; A rest immense I enjoy at last...

    Poetry- Janaka Stagnaro

    Love Letters To A Huntress

    Careful white sheets Pitbull silhouettes, a couple colorful pills. Their military mentalities statuesque under the cross, Leave me alone, concrete faces. I crawl out from under the thorny brambles of marriage and childbirth, a young woman's nightmare and obligation. I want a...

    The Lady She, My Guest

    SHE is a balm for aching breast, Ready-eyed and deadly-dressed, With lust for silent night obsessed. SHE is of hunters known as best, With war-paint worn upon Her chest; Weary SHE, my honored guest. SHE knows I crave what SHE suggests, And make true whatever SHE requests...

    My favorite part of of a poem I fell in love

    with long ago.... Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them, They say they still can’t see. I say, It’s in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts...

    When everything else is going bad in life I

    always turn to poetry or even books. It's nice to get lost in a fantasy world once in a while because then just for a short amount of time, everything seems okay. I mean yeah that feeling won't last, but it's nice to have an escape once in a while.

    Here I am, in the exact place I wanted to go,

    There you are, stuck in the feeling of "I don't know". People I meet form place to place, Leave me here without a trace. You come along and you tell me, You're so beautiful, can't you see? I try and try to do my best, But I just fail, unlike the rest. Pained in sorrow and misery...
