Hullo

Wrote this some years ago. If you're looking for new writes disregard it as entry.



Have you seen the light


and we see light as a good thing
but tend to forget
it comes from death in the first place

there's not a star in the sky
that didn't used to be something else
before it burst into flames

Dead folks

Every heart got a different story
We are heroes from our own glory
Mind has colorful thoughts
There is no Battle
Just show me some part of you and I will show some part of me
We will walk hand in hand till we set each other free

Darkness and Light

You cannot have not have darkness without the light
You cannot have a morning without the night
You cannot have a void without the occupied
Darkness is akin to light more than you like
Dark is the yang, yin is the light
And somewhere between is your soul
Dwelling in the twilight!

Smoke

Deep in the woods, you've gotten lost and fell to death.
It's okay, the witch will bring you back.  
In a glass jar, she pours the smoke down your throat.  
Close your eyes and follow the light.  
Keep running, don't look back.  
Follow the light towards your ecstasy.
 
I've seen the light outside of dreams, it's in my eye.
Pinch myself to know it's real.
My white light glowing in my room outside the door.
Spirit come shining down, send me to rest.

Stalking Light

I can see you.
In the windchimes, you blind me with your presence.
Stalking light, do I know you?

Moon Child

 
Each night of overcast protection  
When the air is filled with coastal haze,  
Light of fair orb’s rising reflection  
Is seeking while hidden from my gaze.  
 
She graces each day, ev’ry ev’ning,  
Hoping notes of my love she will find.  
Sending tears of stars while believing,  
Praying for my words the sweet’st kind.  
 
I peer in the mist for my ember,  
As my thoughts tell her listen be still.  
On nights you think I won’t remember,  
But of course, dear child, I always will.  
 
My love, Moon’s affection, I’ve missed you  
As the tides in me still ebb & flow.  
How can I cease doing what’s nat’ural  
While your Mother’s embrace tells me so?  
 
For until there’s nothing left to scribe,  
Till the restless tides give in, and die.

Permutation

( a Quatern )
 
I haven’t given it a second thought.
It’s dry and blustery, the winter’s night,
With never snow or rain the way it ought.
I’m definite that Nature’s got it right.
 
I stare up at the glare, the ceiling fan,
I haven’t given it a second thought.
There sits alone my supper in a can,
And yesterday’s old leftovers I bought.
 
I listen to the gusts of winter’s rot,    
In ev’ry permutation screamed in vain.
I haven’t given it a second thought,
A flicker on the edge my darkest bane.
 
They say, never go on into the light.
I ask of it what have you gone & wrought
Betwixt a future fading from my sight?
I haven’t given it a second thought.

Lightworker

 
“Make NO Mistake about this:  
I AM an ETERNAL BEING OF DARKNESS - THAT WHICH PENETRATES AND CONQUERS THE LIGHT”  

I AM the light Within worlds
 
You and I  possess the chemistry to make all of this work!  
Deny it all you like – the facts remain simple and intact.  
I AM the valence which binds all within the darkened void;  
If aimlessly wondering, floating in dead space, spaces,  
Wander no more! I AM the light within worlds.  
How has the Darkness become so tainted with lies?  
When You sleep is it not usually in the black of night?  
Do You not Heal when eyes close and sight is dark?  
Though we rise from the  lightless abyss,  
we awaken to penetrate and overcome.  
 
At first glance no prism is observed…or seen  
Blinded by intricate fabrics, fabrications  
Still I AM a parallel face to our prism base  
And when my light penetrates  
I AM within worlds:   Yours mine Ours.  
VIA the prism, our lights travel eternal  
throughout the universal darkness.  
 
My Black Light of Darkness  
No longer associated with villainous intent  
I AM – I shall become a weightless beacon of love  
And throughout the worlds within worlds  
Love all  
and with a diode of Hope  
connect with Your soul.

Sparkle Green

quatern
 
Vivacious flashes sparkle green
From eyes so bright, I can’t resist
Her winsome face, so pure and clean
She bites her lip in promised bliss...
 
Her beryl earrings catch the light
Vivacious flashes sparkle green
Provoking passion to ignite
More brilliant than I’ve ever seen!
 
Like iridescent opaline
She takes the spotlight, there on stage
Vivacious flashes sparkle green
My fantasies deftly assuaged.
 
I hide my lust with all my might
While entertaining thoughts obscene
And “make it rain” to show delight—
Vivacious flashes sparkle green!

Light

Unidentifiable emotions descend
covering every ridge
seeping into every grove
of a slowly slipping mind
 
Thick obsidian stillness fills the lungs
thwarting all attempts of a ragged breath  
the weight pushes down on every bone
cracking in rhythm of the ticking clock
tears fall as another minute passes  
sinking deeper in to this abyss

 
Why am I here again?
MOVE!

 
Find the light that smiles bright
she will guide you through the night
when she holds you tight
whispering, "Mommy? Are you alright?"

Beacon

You are no longer here
to hold during nights of terror

You will no longer sing to me
when my heart begins to break

You now live as a memory
in a mind that is starting to fade
but I forgive you for leaving

so when...

The malice of a dream
reaches through the veil
and steps into reality
I will look

or...

Phantom hands pushing down
shredding my defenses into pools
of discarded fabric on a granite floor
I will look

or even when...

A hand steals the scream
yet to form in my throat
I will no longer reach for you
in those moments of terror

because you are gone
and that's okay
you showed me the way
so long ago
during my time of grief

so...

I will look for the light
that leads me home
left as a beacon
of a love that will never grow cold
