The Aftermath

In my split second of madness  
I gave in to life  
Swallowed the pills  
Washed them down with pure vodka  
Laid my head down  
For the last sleep  
 
Suddenly I was awoken  
For me It was like a few hours  
In reality ten days in a coma  
I heard snarling voices  
Saw faceless faces  
Coming towards me  
 
Couldnít define reality  
The insane hallucinations had taken hold  
I was in a moving hospital  
Moving beds  
Walls painted red with blood  
The screams were either imagined or mine  
 
Life had brought me back  
Fear kept me in a state of limbo  
The voices knew my shame  
Kept digging into my soul  
The pain wouldnít let go  
Just wanted to die again  
 
The face in the mirror wasnít mine  
It was a stranger with dead eyes  
I tried to smash its reflection with my head  
All I got was cuts  
And a rueful smile from my nemesis
Whispering Iím never going away  
 
I survived to tell the tale  
But it haunts me still  
The madness the voices  
The face in the mirror  
They come back from time to time  
But Iím strong enough to fight them off

Moving On (tiny dancer)

 
1(death and discovery)

Metaphorical deaths although painful
the same time rewarding
shedding that which is not needed
transmuting the hurts in to something beautiful

Sleep deprived vision quests
whilst fun at the same time dangerous
seeing the cosmic at its vibrational core
careful to linger any longer than needed
seek what it is
a simple answer to an incredible question

2(living future)

Driving aimless, just the thrill of the ride
engine hums, something for the background, those thoughts, thinking
nothing, just taking in the scenery
enjoying destination, anywhere we want it to be

Silence broken by radio click
static tuning the perfect station
hand creeps, sits on top of mine
atmosphere changes, angelic voice
singing... Count the headlights on the highway
Leaning into me, serenade a duo
Hold me closer tiny dancer
hold me closer............

Away

Asystole is such a lonely sound
As I watched you slip away
Emptiness came crashing down
Words are too hard to say
How do I tell the oneís I love
I pray for strength for today †
Cause tomorrow Iíll just drink it away

Itís the first sunrise without you
All decisions are way too much
Canít find a reason, I donít have a clue
I screamed your name in affray
How can I go on, I feel so hopeless †
Maybe Iíll stop at the church to pray †
Or sit here on these steps and just drink it away

Today is the day, †Iíll lay you to rest †
I asked God why He took you away
My body and soul is so obsessed
A single rose, one last time to pray
As the tears fills my eyes †
When they lower you in that Georgia clay †
The darkness will overcome, †Iíll just drink it away †
 † †
Just drink it away
Little by little the pain will lead me astray
Just drink it away
You were my forever now the past is all I have... after today

Bookmarks & innuendo

 
a swallow leaves as pages of palm trees brown.
hardly drinking,  the sopping fish  
no longer around.
Itís winter now upon subtle grounds
and swallowing difficult when one has that
itch and feel that we might be missing something.
 
Bookmarked the uncertainty, the mainstay  
we do despite the weather,  
friends are left behind. †Invite to come along
creates a journey of slow to no growth
and †hence to feather in between the pages.
 
Still
Thereís the climate and climate change ----
Relationships,  
reciprocal warmth
saliva worn stamps  
curling off of the
empty envelopes.
 
Beside the point?
 
Point is. . .
Education
Indoctrination
Maturation
Preservation  
Montage - Collage
& PerservationÖÖÖÖ
 
The personal journey
is to no where special  
but somewhere
beyond  
our selves.
 
Green pages sprout and spring
all the books returned
Bookmarks removed
still †remind
us of how far weíve traveled.
 
Trust me,
You will know  
the when
the how
the before and after. . .

 
However,
the why
perhaps  
Is an eternal path
buried somewhere
within inuendos
of the Living Tome's
pages.
 
Sometimes
I wish I had
bookmarked  
those  
damn  
places.

The Bygone (E)Ra (Re)Turns...A FireEye

 

a chirpy rhythmic
sparrowy koel
(she was)
in a rare naturalistic flair

and, in blue print nylons. those mini florals
a matching locket dangled . timidly metallous

devoid of blues (was she)

her eyes lit
as she looked upon Ra
(like everbefore)

who, a clumped mass
immobilized
by its conceptions
of obsoleted self

to her
the Ra was Soulflame
burning endlessly zealous

Ra, reminiscing
through its bloated vagueness pockets
greened gangrenes
weighed itself down
in strangulating blockades

not an illumination until distant visions
doomed times in marching strides

a reducing matchstick
abrased its solid graphitic stamps
and choking smogs
over its ashen nothingness


it needed to starve in stringent constrictions
to be fusing its spaces from within and between
to be gotten kissing stuck in purposed strongholds kicking forward

each segmental cell danced n-directions
a lightning centipede but paced smooth
much differently from shelled slimy snail


indecipherably penetrating fire
of mingled singularity

Icarus' Last Wish

When Icarus
- prudent Daedalus' restive son -
having flown too close to the sun, †
was descending to an unfortunate but certain death, †
his fast approaching demise did not even cross his mind...

Burning down through thin clouds†
a single thought obsessed him:

Would he ever, and how, †
get to fly again...

עִמָּנוּאֵל‎

I was hesitant to †
step onto the light  
I was the fear  
itself from within  

but I buried it well  
with the fearless veneer †
and drowned me  
in a quicksand †
staring at a rope  
over my head  

time to time †
you get a nudge †
to your toes †
lifting you up  
still, you refuse †
to grab the rope  

because  
you tremble at  
the voices inside  

they try to convince  
an escape doesnít †
come this easy †

they try to take  
you to the bottom  
saying the true †
escape is there †  

but it keeps  
nudging you †
levitating you  

and finally, you †
grab the rope  
with your †
brokenness  
weakness  
wickedness  
hopelessness  
tiredness  
and half closed eyes  

and today, Iím not scared  
of the darkness that ruined my days  
with a strengthened heart, a faithful soul  
a righteous spirit and Iím filled with hope  

because,  

עִמָּנוּאֵל‎ † Immanuel  
God is with (us) me

TRAPPED IN A WORLD OF DARKNESS

As the sunshine slowly disappears from the skies only to be replace by the shadow of the darkness of night AS IT OVER TAKES THE DISTANCE SKIES, it is here within this very moment of space were there is no time my mind wonders and ponders, upon my most deepest thoughts that walks and travels through the stairways and chambers of my mind and heart and soul touching and pulling at the deepness of my silents with tears I cry in silence alone. † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
For as the darkness shades my life at this very moment within time and world it shifts my most inner thoughts to a feeling that grabs at my gut from deep within my mere spiritual soul of my souls, for I don't want to appear weak nor strong for bottom line I am only HUMAN AS A MAN, who has seen the darkness of hurt and pain with a deep feel of misery for we all have been there before once in our life and world. † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †When love changes as it isn't the same as it use to be in the beginning for you went from having sunshine to having darkness take over your life and world, but always remember these unspoken words what don't kill you only makes you that much stronger as an individual of heart and mind and body and spiritual soul even when DARKNESS FALLS.
