Forgotten Poems

Postby jan_Pusa » Mon Sep 04, 2017 11:55 am

I was cleaning out my tablet and found some unpublished TP poems. I thought I'd (finally) let them see the light of day...

Thanks as always.
A couple of minor problem noted, with standard corrections (which may need more modification to fit poet requirements)
Three large problems (I think) whch may be several cases of one problem, how to attach a verb phrase to a noun : "I see you talking to your friends". tp can do 'mi lukin e ni: sina toki tawa jan pona' and 'mi lukin e sina. sina toki tawa jan pona' , Neither of these seems to get the sense of the smooth phrasing. mi lukin e sina pi toki pi tawa jan pona' may be closer but is getting long and complex for a simple idea. Any suggestions?

[Giving love.

I shed tears.
I have love in my heart.
I want to give love.
But nobody comes to have it [ona].


You and me.

You look at me.
I look at you.
Good feelings ar in your mouth.
Good feelings are in my mouth.
You talk to me.
I talk to you.
You give me hot water.
I give you hot water.
I think that you like me.
I know that I like you.


What am I to you?

I look at you.
You don’t look at me.
Good feelings are in my mouth because of you.
Good feelings are in your mouth because of someone else.
I talk to you.
You talk to someone else.
I want a lover.
You want a lover.
I want to love you.
Why don’t you want to love me.


A mother’s tears.

I want only this [wile e ni taso]
That you learn
And grow up well
And bring good to others
And are happy.

My child,
I shed tears
Because, while your spirit moves,
Your body is in my hands.


This woman is bad.

I can see you
Talking to your girl friends [grammar doesn’t work here, not sure how to fix]
In addition, I can see you
Touching the body of your your female partner [same problem]

I speak to you
Woman ruins our friends [maybe some problem again]
My spirit wants to speak
But my heart cannot speak.


I make myself sick.

I make myself sick
Because my desires get nowhere.
I am a non-person
In a bad country.

I shed tears
Because I cannot give
Goodness and love
In my heart.

I make myself sick
And want to die.


Body of Love.

Give me your hand.
I want to feel your heat. [or ‘selo’ “skin”?]
Talk to me because of your love [‘toki tawa mi’]
I want to hear your voice.
Look at me,
I want to see your beauty.
Don’t throw me away.
I love you.]
