Ghost memories

Sometimes angels sometimes demons
My reminiscences of you  
At times are bliss at others brine
Rubbed in wounds of old
Just now the horns appear
To banish me, a sinner.
Ever pacing in the darkness
voicing echoes
Conversations with a ghost
I wander through a house of mirrors
Reflecting only tears and blackness
In my own image
The ghost of you morphed
Into the faces of my tormenting
Devils
Wonít a friendly apparition
Return those heavenly reminders
That I love so much?
Burn the night horrors
To resurrect eternal dreams
Of light.

To The Heavenís Glory Be Thy Name

To the Heavenís glory be thy name   † † †
Skin of atonement I bow unto the sovereigns whose journeys have already came † † † † †
If I shall fall short of thy glory before I take my last breath † † † † †  
May I be given wings after the ascending from the stillness of death † † † † †
Before I asunder beyond the sun † † † † †  
Bathe my soulís belief in thy Kingdom † † † † †
On earth as in Heaven, it shall be won † † † † †
I rise to take in vain the occurrences in my life that never was † † † † †
Mercy be upon me † † † † †  
To have soothed souls with my earthly investment to have always given universal love † † † † †
† † † † †  
For the society who professes love with fork tongues † † † † †
Always bless their cup to runneth over with more than some † † † † †  
And enough to share with those who are without none † † † † †
So shall it be written so shall it be done † † † † †
To the Pope may you cast aside silent iniquities among the Holy found in the religion of sin † † † † †
Compassion to the Christian Preacher who teaches to pass the offering plate before the service has begin † † † † †
Let my faith echo from the highest skies † † † † †
Ten centimeters, upon dilation may parents always hear their childís first cries † † † † †
† † † † †  
Abduction to innocent souls gone without a goodbye, preceding of numerous false hopes, no clues † † † † †
May the rock be lifted to give justice to the unrighteous and condemn the blind fool † † † † †
Returned to the cradle of loving arms † † † † †  
Where love and warmth has returned displacing tearful storms † † † † †  
To the men who prances around in ivory holed sheets † † † † †  
Disunited in Psalms for all to the come to the table in Proverbs for all nations to feast † † † † †
Men of skill, the chosen ones to heal by sight unseen of faces upon the Hippocratic Oath † † † † †  
Attend to heart, mind, body, and the mental anguish for the intellect, to never gloat † † † † †
† † † † †  
Never to allow corrupted and purchased beliefs to puppet scientistís hands † † † † †
To quietly depopulate the masses of a childbearing woman, the laughter of child, or eradicate the Creatorís image of man † † † † †
Bangies of the night roaming to share the depth of their soul on a hard bed of knox † † † † †
Leaving pieces of their self by the hour of the tick tock † †  
Give them peace in the comforts of slumber as alone they sleep †† † † † †
Canít we all just get along † † † † †
My Charka meditation found in the hymns blowing in the wind of my nightly songs † † † † †  
I tell you these things they will surely come to pass † † † † †  
Let my words in this testament expand farther than my mind to outlast † † † † †
Life is lived, death is only the repast † † † † †
† † † † †  
To the Heavenís glory be thy name

The Devil

The Devil was taking over.
So much pain
Due to my own stupidity.
I wanted to kill.
A gun? A knife?
I chose a pen
And drove the Devil
Away...partly.

Baptism of Spring

Autumn came slowly and eventually forced us to close the kitchen window. †
Winter arrived before we realized there were now three quilts on every bed. †
By then no one wanted to get up first thing in the morning to turn on the stove †
and leave the oven door open to help heat the room. †
We all resented the unwelcomed guest of winter enough to confess all our hidden †
sins just so we could be born again in righteousness and newness of life come spring. † - But for now, there will be no full emersion baptism, rather only a sign of a sign †
in the cold sprinkle of a winter shower that persisted all day under the dreary skies of February.

Always Then

the rolling hills beseech me
reflective of our beginning days
fresh white wild flowers,  
abandoned
to an empty field afar
longing
to make it to where we are
 
newness kept,  
playing upon a heart
the sun, the rain, the wind
all chiming in  
 
where beauty would begin
 
light looking past  
a rocky shore
living free
and so much more
 
amore
beauty holds what I long have seen
my senses pulse at the very thought
of what we ought
and what we bring

flowers entwined at the stem
a!ways now
and always then

Written In My Blood

Severed artery
Painful exaggeration
Measured artistry
Vein full of imagination

As the blood rushes to my face
I stand amazed
At the grace inside your stength
As the days I've left to say

The descriptor of your perplexion
Your perfection
A mixture of your reflection

As i reminisce of watching your iris grow
You're perfection
As i plant my heart for you to sow

Draw my blood
And when they ask what type
Tell them it's love

Fallen from above
And when they ask what i type
Know it's not enough

Pencil me in
In all the shades that i adore
This happiness
Grows like an oak deep at it's core

Lay with me
In this canopy
Of green
With envy

Be with me
And listen to my heart sing
It sings a dream of many

Severed artery...
Like the rain i pour
Under this tree...
Every day, i love you more and more

A Discovered Strength of Vulnerability




a
tinge
of evolution
within
the vast
heart

inspired
to love
beauty
in all
its true
states

open
vulnerable
naked
truth of
the soul is a
frightening place

dreams need
 a steadfast
reality
strong arms
holding you
in flight

bound
by a
choice
to freely
love a
rose

thorns
and all

a little
blood
for love
does colour
those
petals

my
drips
are sweet
we can
share our
pain

within
warmly
felt cuddles
and self
healing
kisses
