When at Last She Sings

Do you fear the silence?
The dreadfulness of night?
Every beast is sleeping
Waiting for her dawn to break
Listening for the forgotten call

Do you feel the whisper in the air?
Resurgence is on the horizon
A voice will rise from blackened ash
Like smoke you'll smell her there
Like a wildfire you'll be running

Ringing her declaration bells
A fallen angel wakes tonight
Roaring in sinister symphony
Reclaiming her perverted throne

Every repentant knee will bow
The guilty stripped naked at her feet
Those who once molested her
Will hear her damned voice ring

No condemnation for her vengeance
No remorse for those who scream
Do not fear the chimes that sound
Her wind is stirring everything

The hour is near, rapture shall come
The gates of Hell will crumble
What fire she'll rain down with triumph
What cries we'll shout in harmony
When at last she sings

who do i think i am?

 
 
think? i know:
 
i am dust and starbrites  
collective consciousness of nanoseconds
a cumulative mass of memories  
responses-past of physical  
and emotional  
stimuli  

i am  
white-water and the sunlit stream  
waves and rain and colder condensations  
 
i am prism  
mirror  
pupilled iris and lake's surface  
—way-station of oxygen  
human-manufacturer of other, older gases  
 
i am the electric spark of life  
the pump and slew of bodily parts  
their flex and calcification  
the untold power of a mind  
that lives beyond parameters of flesh  
 
i am the hand held out  
the shoulder  
the soft heart and the wise  
bender not breaker  
adapter-survivor  
honed where once blunt  
tempered by trials  
 
stripped naked  
—the learner of lessons—  
i clothe myself in light and shade  
of my own choosing,  
in humility, honesty & understanding  
aware of my own faults  
 
i am  
celebrant of humanity  
judge of transgressions  
the mouthpiece and the scales  
in balance  
in justice  
in honour and in truth  
for it matters  
to me  
who. i. am

The Royals vs the poet's realm

 
Of splendid thrones of gold  
or treasures manifold    
   
Of jewelled caskets    
or lavish banquets    
   
Of Emirs and rajahs    
Of Sultan and Shahs    
   
Of kings and queens    
Of rulers and emperors    
   
Of sparkling crowns    
or flowing gowns    
   
Of their subservient stewards and obedient pages    
Of their stalwart squires and servile knaves    
   
Of poor humble, docile minions    
who tended to regal pavilions    
And obeisantly carried royal palanquins    
Oh and some were real life harlequins    
   
Of castles and palaces    
of abounding gold and silver    
in ostentatious regal splendour    
   
The sidelined fanning maids in waiting    
Yet to me only one thing worth noticing    
The minstrels who came to sing    
from afar for the queen and king    
   
For I'd rather be a poetess for kings    
so to my tunes swayed a kingdom    
than I be the king of mere subjects    
and be filled with regal boredom!    
   
So I could join ranks of    
troubadours    
and sing for the king    
some folklores.    
 
 
A passion for poesy  
For magic of literacy [/b]

Who am I?

Who am I?
I know my name
I know my date of birth
I even know my place of birth
But who am I?

Some think I'm smart
Some think I'm a retard
Some consider me strong
Some consider me weak

Some say I'm so weak, it would be too unfair to compete
Some say I'm so fast, it's like I have the worlds quickest feet
Some say they can see exactly who I am on the outside
But who am I on the inside?

I love to write, I love to draw
However neither of them i'm good at at all
I love math, I love science
Sure i can rehearse meaningless mathematical principles
But all my scientific "facts" are horrifically biased

Some times I wonder who I am or what I could be
I'm documented and the world claims me as it's own
But who am I to be accredited for?

KRACKUS

I was born of splitting atoms, way before Eve and Adam,
Fitting of nuclear power rhymes with lines which sang:
“Here comes the Krackus causing a chaotic cosmic ruckus” 
Spitting flames at ‘em I had ‘em taking aim from the Bang. 

I was brought into existence upon nature’s ill persistence, 
A mix of super stellar rhythms and intergalactic grooves, 
I was a harmonious fusion of both creation and evolution, 
A movement of hybrid rudiments meant to make you move. 

I was conceived of spirit and will, crafted with artistic skill, 
In light of elements coalesced with force and energy, 
Bringing to life this form from the midst a colossal storm, 
With a passion pulse destined to bring about synergy. 

I was birthed into the universe, with kicks in old skool Converse, 
Ready to flow ire fire in verses versus the glow of red giant suns, 
But it didn’t (dark) matter who was the first or who was the latter, 
Because I am the one son whose tongue is measured in megatons.

Reflection

 

Where have you gone no answer I hear.
But only a presence that lingers so near.
What seemed to be right always was wrong.
The weakness I see once made me feel strong.
Soul searching discovers my unworthy pride.
Truth breaches the wall that’s kept me inside.
Together held well within boarding frame.
Likeness visional and dreamt hardly the same.
No relief I feel against an icy cold touch.
You are to blame for so little as well as so much.
Desperately hid from judgmental gaze.
Remembering what was in earlier days.
With out you I of course could never be me.
I truly am what I am and all that I see.
Despite all the changes that I’ve been put through.
In the mirrors glass pool it’s me and me too.

Agreed Contradiction

   
Your absolute arrogance  
eclipsed by illogical certainty
Think you solved my mystery?
Come closer, look once more

I'm the juxtaposition of known universes
hidden discovery of uncharted constellations.    
A shooting star eternally illuminating
never-ending darkness.    
   
Harmoniously dissonant    
emotionally logical    
lyrically silent    
serenely violent    
inhumanely compassionate  
divinely mortal  
nonviolent mercenary    
dominantly submissive    
compliantly defiant    
eternally fleeting    
madly lucid    
religiously profane    
hypothetical actuality    
impeccably imperfect    
   
I am the intersection    
explicit collision course    
polar opposites residing    
in positively negative space    
   
Try to label me, I dare you    
It’ll be your last act    
before you’re history.

Deep breath

the intermission
between moments
of boredom
when being
forces oneself
to examine
each fleeting second
beneath the microscope
of existential time

what is this?

why am I me
rather than you?

where am I going?

while the angst
pushes against
my soul
and all reality
turns toxic
with lungs plunged
into the void
of infinity

please...

give me oxygen

oxygen...

These Dark Clouds, Colored Luna Grey

silky words
seep slowly
into  
my crowded head,  
each one    
pulling    
vibrant colors  
from    
the atmosphere  
   
~and they sing~  
    
images flutter,  
landing softly  
across  
these dark clouds,  
colored luna grey    
with the melancholy  
of existing  
in skin    
that doesn’t fit;  
each stolen    
from memory,  
or  
my insatiable    
imagination,  
it’s hard to tell  
sometimes  
   
~they all sing~  
   
rotund bass notes  
sliding    
skin to skin  
against  
the upwards lilt  
that finishes    
your voice    
like a fine wine    
paired perfectly,    
and my ears  
are an empty glass,  
waiting
