perish-able

 

(We broken hearts beat stonier....)
 
As a promise  
once fiercely flourished  
sacred and burning  
trust blossomed,  
made of fullest wonder  
 
distant shores decorated  
in sprightly shared wishes  
whispered hush tones  
whimsically chimed  
from tongues, so sincere  
 
we lost souls beckoned  
becoming of one  
senses acutely in tune  
hearts expanded  
contracted, easier  
beats bellowing joy, abundant  
 
siphoning goodness  
into sapphire magic  
known begets known  
indestructible,  
for certain and all  
indulged truthful surrender  
 
we conjoined minds  
of bond and brilliance  
nothing could  
every want  
or dare destroy  
united and ardent  
 
we loyal and faithful  
made of steely hide  
 
......  
 
Just, one pebble  
tiniest fodder  
achingly, unrestrained  
slowly sandswept  
seeping  
scheming grains  
irritating  
eyes  
burdensome in  
total blindness
 
hollowing out  
hope  
 
O' this awful tearing
 
crumbling  
divided devastation  
rife, is the residue  
of brutality  
whence betrayal  
becomes  
purity of loss in focus  
the throes,  
are death  
a mythos of pain  
 
souls riven
of damnation  
ornately twisted  
sunken dreams  
weighted—    
drowning  
 
as a heart's  
transformation
ends completed  
 
now heavy, is the stone  
that once  
 
dual beated

but first

 
forgive them.

For yourself.

unfortunately the abyss and the void are not the same thing

wish there was an
former
rather than that
darn dreaded
void
at end
of the horizon.

in the garden

 

fox fur
sets on fire
& the babies
grow taller,

they walk
through tall
green blades
in deep fog

pawing
at earth
for scraps
of food,

i imagine
myself as
good as
them

how it's
better being
able to survive
throughout
every season,

to be near
those sharp
edges

than
nothing
at all.

On reflection

It’s easy enough to be spiritual
when things are going well,
when the light you find in others
brings you out from under your shell

when the sun is shining in the sky
and there’s smiles on every face,
when summer flowers are growing
in a beautiful garden space

but sooner or later night arrives
as stars fold into the moon,
darkness weaves a blanket fair,
winter finds you all too soon

and every moment isn’t warm
every presence isn’t a gift,
every voice is not a symphony
every sunrise isn’t a lift

sometimes people make us cry
when we hear history in a song,
sometimes lonely is hard to bear
when we’ve been strong for too long

because it’s easy to be spiritual
when our lives are fine and swell,
sometimes you make it through the day

that’s spiritual as well.

(NoPoo 335) A Process

picturing each syllable

on indescribable grief (a senryú)



When I see his face
Still— [shockwaves], I'm breathing
With my heart...... missing.

Monday

You know  
that level of tired
 
tired tired—
 
feet are burning coals
melting through dull ice  
tired
 
truth is  
I burned out
about a week ago
 
exhaustion
 
ground zero  
 
I mean
I’d drink coffee
if I could stomach it,
but I can’t stand  
the stuff  
 
because I refuse  
this Yank mentality
of differently packaged addiction
fucking up a fine institution  
of keeping [not so] calm
but carrying on  
 
despite blackouts,
hyper meltdowns
 
days I can’t even remember
the sweet fucking name of
 
and it’s all very well
not reaching for a bottle;
I’ve congratulated myself
many times
 
but these days,  
man—
 
these fucking days
and their monotony  
claws at my brain  
 
like a belligerent old thief
I am yet to fully
forgive.

"And now- for a message from our sponsors...."



Just when you think
there's even a semblance
of sanctuary...
from the surrealistic abstract
in tone and time

To the reality of
crushing blows
life unabashedly uses
to beat a body senseless

Welting black and blue
like neon
flashing it's lesson
seared upon pale skin

The myth perpetuated
that safe harbor—exists
is placating fiction
an optical illusion

Highlighted by the totality
of abominable naiveté
an 'after school special'
of mental and emotional
'character building'
purposely, in the
ridicule and rape
of all promised potential

Of all hope.

Where a trusting heart's
whimsical, loving fantasy—
that people
are mostly inherently good,

learned proper, by sickening loss
by pain in unimaginable proportions
and a broken will,
forever fucked up and twisted
especially, if you were of femininity
with a strong sense of self


The hammered truth
reality of pure carnal knowns
will always
be crowned winner
in the end....
at all costs

Humankind,
of supposed centuries evolved
[yet, to have
barely inched up
whatever evolutionary chart
says we are 'decent'
and, (definitely
no longer animals!
)
rotates today,
the same - no differently
then any other time

That finding solace
within a safe likeness
is like looking
directly into the sun

Blinding and warm
but caustic
and in the end—



permanently damaging

Decent may be wrongly used with humankind and evolution. we have seen so many of the animal kingdom regardless of Darwin's theories so much more social among their own. The lion although a predator only kills out of necessity. We're only rambling, this piece actually made us think and that is super cool and super tight. Thanks Lady

Remembrance

I dreamt
lights of a dying sun
playing upon a face
almost remembered
not quite forgotten

racing towards a destination
Unknown yet anticipated
I cling on hopes
of swimming up
to breathe again
the flavour of sunshine

and I did
shrugging off pain
exquisite in it's offering
I seek an unseen hand
to comfort me

I remember You
and I'm comforted
