Web Of Lies

Stranger danger
web of lies
what could it harm
to socialize
you could be stalked or
taken for a ride
 
catfished, ghosted
turned to prey
so much danger
does await
web of deceit
tempting fate

Words

These words      
         
They travel across fields of such mossy green
being blown along by the softest breeze
floating higher and higher into skies bluer than her eyes when she whispers and sighs        
         
Ohh, These words...          
         
Have fought wars upon wars and have seen those scars, the kind with lasting memories of the weary and wicked. The battle torn and the righteous hordes of all those not as lucky as I      
         
Yes, These words.....          
         
FINALLY          
Have made their way from the very bang of the biggest sort. Precious commodities that God himself cradled and out of the mouths of babes they were brought forth        
         
My not so impervious heart weakens and contracts...          
         
As my love's    
words.....      
              have returned home

Transference Through Acceptance of Balance

To recognize
 the principle of love, it must be
seen from mindful awareness
To funnell love through the stem
of morality, Is not love

Fill your mind, your body with
guilt and fear, it will  flourish
within an empty heart,
It leaves no room  for good
intentions

We know , now
Yet, we continue on in ignorance,
looking for  truth, it's how we define ourselves, as if it were an individual uniqueness, that can only be
attained, by struggle and heartache. 

We step out, of now
Into wave upon wave of  humanity,
 we exist, ahead of ourselves 
building better, smarter,
creating more until, we have
become numb to the challenge,
 of being a better human

Life happens, without intervention. 
Everything is,  as it should be, 
right within itself,  arranged as
it should be.

To be a part of the ever changing
now-  we remain the same ,
we are, the all in all,  within us,
is the truth 

Transference through acceptance of balance

Rage Quit

I'm a huge fan of online games,
my favourite is Call of Duty.
I love to play with my friends all day,
give me that Warzone booty.

One thing I can't stand however,
is when I get camped by some noob.
It feels like the universe is being unfair,
like it's gone in dry without lube.

Some stupid little kid on the mic,
saying how I just got wrecked.
'Stupid little prick' I thought,
needs to learn some respect.

So off I went after him,
trying to knife him in the skull.
But he kept trashing me with the barret,
and my prospects were looking dull.

I invited him to a one-on-one on Rust,
to settle our outstanding beef.
I invited him to speak to me directly,
but he just kept giving me grief.

Within the first couple of tries,
I'd managed to paste him with a frag.
Maybe I was being optimistic,
thinking I had this in the bag.

For suddenly he swooped in screaming,
nearly causing my ears to bleed.
The decal on his AR-15 was repulsive,
Black and covered in weed.

He nailed me in the cranium,
he one-shotted me in the sweed.
He blew my fucking brains across the floor,
talking how him and my mother would breed.

The tears were streaming down my face,
as I turned red with rage.
I'd invited him here to destroy him I'd thought,
and he's one-upping me on my own stage.

The little fucker kept drilling me,
so I just threw a fit.
I ran over to my console,
switched it off, punched my wall, rage quit.

For the you I lost

 
"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)" Sylvia Plath


see me in the light
a few words of pain
on things forever changing
in the darkness
of it all

bring me love
amid the silence
away from all the rabble
but here I sit
this stone-cold heart
crying in the rain

see me in the light
as a broken sentence
falls upon the page
a written word
skimming the surface
of my soul
seeking answers
in the darkness

in this raging silence

the color of grief

oh you all the beings
of the human kind
show me of the color
missed not by the blind

tell me about it's hue
tell me whether it's true
does it vary does it differ
between humans two

am sure that it does not
like of joy and relief
pierces same all tear glands
the color of the grief

it cares not and dismisses
color of skin and eye
it strikes it never misses
to deny it is a lie

the color of the grief
like that of joy and relief
spans beyond the spectrum
of human pride and belief

catechism

 
spinning through the onyx haze
I face my maker hundred proof dread
in the atmosphere, he descends

I see on the horizon a thousand virgins
blood marks there heads
confounded I close my eyes
a jolt to my mind awakens me
I must look

I am commanded to take record
a circumference of insanity
a line drawn in the sand
I dare not cross

conjuring the winds I seek to take to the air
meeting me in the skies he is there as well
an infinite voice booms through the eternities
I will not veil my head

I see you, Sir
take my masochism as an offering
sinner and saint, I am your woman

confined to the mortal
I descend though I rise

Compliance & Nonviolence (Suffering In Silence)

They killed a man who preached nonviolence
And are still demanding that we suffer in silence
Met with threats of violence for taking a knee
So tell me why do you sing O' say can you see?

Can you not see the hypocrisy in any of this?
Historically, revolutionaries have used their fists
As a means to resist so we ALL can live free
From the tyrannical oppression of evil entities

Quoting Stokely, an enemy must have a conscience
In order for nonviolence to have a fighting chance
There's no romance between beauty & the beast
Bring that fairytale nonsense to an immediate cease

It's played out like a crease in denim jeans
Obtain your sense of peace by any means
It was all a dream when thirteen was ratified
Prisons profiting means that they surely lied

Been taken for rides since the transatlantic trips
Just no longer cargo at the bottom of their ships
Get a grip on reality where political fallacies reign
So casualties won't be family's blood in the drain

Incessant pain remains that makes it hard to breathe
Mentally, physically & spiritually causing us to seethe
Grinding our teeth as they keep denying justice
Raising closed fists as we continue to resist
