THE CIRCLE OF INVENTIVENESS – PART 5

What is going on with TV? Why is it blunts and then switch off and on? Who someone would have done it to toy with me? Well, thanks to a miracle that the TV comes back on, no more blunts and switch off. Hmm, I would like to have some biscuits, thought my head. Yummy, so lovely, so delicious. Oh you, Peace. Are you here to watch TV? Yeah, I thought so. Should I keep quiet like last time? Yes? I see. Enjoy watching TV what it offers. Sorry to interrupt your space-time, but I would like to say something since it’s thirty minutes, oh no words at all. Why are you here? Just watching TV or do you want me to say something even if you don’t speak? What would have I done if you stay quiet for as long as you need, but what about me? Why did you nod your head? Yes, I saw that you were nodding. Well, it’s another thirty minutes, no words at all. Why, Peace? Did you make a vow to silence your mouth? If you vow to silence your mouth, do you also vow to silence your hands? I know one of sign languages because Deaf is my friend. If he is here, I would welcome him to my heart, as I did to you and still do. What says you if I ask you to pronounce some words even if they are a few words. Just say it out of your hands. I know you can sign. Well, Peace, it has been one hour that we have not said anything, yes, no words at all. Would you agree with me if I say that you have been silent for two hours?

Provoke.

Oh, thanks Wisdom, for waking me up. Where is Peace?

He is not here.

Oh, yeah. What are you doing? Deaf? HOW-ARE-YOU? YOU WELL? GREAT.

I have something important to tell you.

About?

Well

You have kept our deal well. As I promise

Wisdom, it has been hours for you to return here with Provoke.

Provoke, can you go to this room over there? Thank you.

Marvellous, I have kept our deal, so should you do your part of our deal.

Be patient, Wisdom. Here a holy stone goes.

Thank you, Marvellous. Let’s go, Mr. Patience.

When I arrived in this room, it surely made me feel a true self, myself. What do you think of this room? It is old and ancient. No one knows this room but He gave me this room to look after. I have never left this room. Yes, I have not yet named this room, so should it be a good idea for me to call, this room?

Marvellous, I am sorry that my mind is not with you, because my mind scourges the Hypocrite. When I entered this room, my thoughts doom the Hypocrite’s infinity.

You have not changed, not one bit because you have kept your true self. However, do you know why you are here?

Yes, Wisdom told me everything.

You are a bond to him, do you know? Wisdom has kept you under him because without him you would not be this person you are today.

Whatever, don’t waste your time, Marvellous. Do the deal you had with Wisdom, you want me, right? You must hurry to do your part of Wisdom’s deal he had with you.

Well, Provoke. The deal I made with Wisdom was to see you with no further of the plan. I wanted to see you, in exchange, for my sake.

You are speaking like a riddle.

Well, Provoke. I ensure my words to make you understand because as long as you are understanding, you would not toy me with your words, but however, have you met the Hypocrite?

No, I have not.

Then why are you scourging the Hypocrite?

Because I am tired of the world that has taken parts of the Hypocrite.

Such as

Such as Charlatan, Sly, and many more.

Well, here is my deal I had with Wisdom, was to see you with no further of the plan, but I want you to take me with you for one month.

One month?

Yes, one month. I will inform Wisdom that my deal is to be with Provoke for one month.

Why, one month? Why not one day or one week?

Marvellous has to work and fulfill the duty she has from the order. Do you know Reduction?

Yes, I know him. He is full of nonsense.

Well, Reduction is deeming that he wants to end Deaf’s life.

What? He cannot do that. Because Deaf is my friend.

I heard that he stays with you until all is well and safe, right? Let me go with you for one month. You will learn a lot of things from my side, and who knows that Deaf will have lots of support from your side? Well, is it not your desire to support Deaf, is it?

I have always supported Deaf with all my soul because he is my faithful and quiet friend.

Then you tell Wisdom that Marvellous stays with you until one month is fulfilled. Is that good enough for you? Please remember that you do anything for Wisdom because he has done a lot for you, yes, really lots.

Well, I will do it. One month, only. Yes? Good.

Before we go to your house, let me tell you a bit about Charlatan who is staying with you, when he sees me, I want you to protect me from him.

Why should I protect you under my roof toward Charlatan?

I want you to protect me from Charlatan that being flirts with me. I have no desire to flirt with him. Please, Provoke, will you protect me from his flirtation? This is my deal I have made with you, protect me from Charlatan’s flirtation. I also heard that sometimes Sly visits Charlatan, so I can handle her lies because I can figure when she’s deceiving, but Charlatan, please will you do it for me, to protect me from his flirtation, yes, I repeat, will you protect me from Charlatan’s flirtation?

Okay, okay, okay, I hear you!

Where is the angel?

Bravo, the Angel, the ancient one
Before they flew to the Earth
Heaven, there they were, in the heart of the Earth
But they left this planet, brought themself away

But where is the Angel?
They left the Earth, brought themself to the Heaven
Look at us, where is the Angel?
I want to know where they are if they are there or here

Bravo, the Angel, the ancient one
I have heard that they are the righteous
That they fought for the Holy Creator
Even to this day, it is them that serves Him

But where is the Angel?
The story wonders me when I think of
Heaven to my brain that makes sense
Why the Angel left, or why they are not here

Bravo, the Angel, the ancient one
The story knows the history
Yet who the story do I think I am
Oh, a man from the Earth, here I am

But where is the Angel?
How I could know where they are
Oh, I am a man on one of the seven continents
How I could know, how I could know where the Angel is

Bravo, the Angel, the ancient one
They are watching the Earth
Oh, I bet that they are invisible
Oh, I bet that they are, I bet!

Bravo, where is the Angel?
Bravo, the ancient one, where
Bravo, the Angel, where are you?
Bravo, they are watching the Earth

Who said that you can decide, what is poetry?

Who said that you can decide, what is poetry? 
If you think my words are weak because they are
Not poems, as thou think so but I shall remind thee
That ye have no respect, for those who tell their love ones
That their poems art what they said
Accept if one’s poetry is different from you, alas, thou cannot
Say what thou think, based on thy sound
But I shall tell you that ye have no idea what poetry is 
If you think that is based on yours, then, thou know it’s unfair
For you to say that my words are weak, no, not fair for thou
To say that I said, the weak words because thou think thy words
Art strong or what you said, the strong words thou think so 
But not me, not some, ye see that I might paint thy understanding
That ye need to respect, for those who declare that they’re saying 
Or writing is poetry, accept anyone’s poem who declare their poetry!

Mother’s day 2020

Your majestic, the whole world is right here in front of your eyes.
I told you to not be formal
Yet the whole world is right here in front of your body.
And I also told you to not be a riddle
My mind used to tell me that I should not always obey you.
How dare you disobey your majestic!
Your majestic, listen, of course not me, but listen to the world.
What is going on?
Well, listen, but of course not me, hence, listen slowly to the world.
I can hear your heart is beating loudly.
Well, my heart used to explain that love is nothing but love, love, and love!
Well, man, woman, child, and men, women, children, what are going on?
My heart also used to tell me that I should not close my ears nor my soul.
When the last time you used to say, your majestic?
I am sorry, your majestic! Your majestic, I used to say
Stop it, nor ye disobey me.
Yes, your majestic, but listen to the world, yes! Listen slowly to the world!
Calm down.
I am, but you think my words are not calming down.
I can hear your heart is throbbing.
Yet it pains me to see that you do not listen slowly to the world.
Why should I listen to the world?
Your majestic, listen, please, just for once your lifetime, listen!
Your words dare to against me.
Listen, listen, please, listen.
Get out!
Your majestic, look!
What are they doing?
They are celebrating Mother’s Day.
Oh yes, I can hear they are chanting, Happy Mother’s Day!
Your majestic, yes.
I am sorry that I misunderstood you.
It is all right.
What can I make it up to you?
Nothing, but Happy Mother’s Day!
