Beautiful, simply gorgeous
an angel with such a heavenly glow, white light trails in your wake.
So soft, so sensitive, so pure
Your essence is intoxicating, incredibly invigorating.
Walking beside you was like being wrapped in a veil of magical light
fairies fluttering with their butterfly wings
singing songs of love and life without any strife
immeasurable and incredible
pure candy for sight
a flavor of the gods, beyond any mortal delight
Magical Ways – Poem
The world moves in magical ways
It has an ebb and flow
A feel of pure pleasure,
a sensation of cool liquidity
rhythmically rocking us, forward and back
Not all of our feels make sense
they don’t have to
Feelings are creatures without a master
they are untamed
liberated and Free
Acceptance, like the world, has an ebb and flow
It moves forward and back
side to side
it glides and slides, but never abides.
Eh – Poem
I want to say “Not a peep, not a noise, not a word.”
I want to say “Are you serious?”
“After all this time?”
“After this and that, here and there?”
I want to say “ok.”
I want to say “I get it.”
“I should have seen it.”
“That this was going to happen.”
“It was destined to be.”
“that’s how it works”
What can I say?
It doesn’t take them away
The way the road moves
how it travels
or where it goes
The steps we took have already been taken
They can’t be undone
They will always be there
Maybe I’m fine with it
Ready to lift my soul
let my heart go
rise and fly
watch what was…
Hurt and pain and all sorts of shame
We live in a world where things don’t go our way
Life is not solely about the good times
or the bad.
It is about the memories we cherish, love and like.
the lessons we have learned
and the things we have earned
Sadness is a time stamp of the things we have accepted
the moments that have passed
the ones that are to come
that will be all sorts of fun
It is an opportunity to look forward
to walk toward the sun
and dance in the night
to look ahead without any fright
live and love
and wear life like a glove
Plug – Poem
There is a plug, a sticky thing,
a clog filling the passage
It keeps all the gooey good stuff from flowing like it should
It keeps us from seeing ourselves
seen how we see
feel how we feel
how we want to experience
This plug is tough and gruff and overall quite the bastard
We have to pull and struggle and fight
do what needs to be done to open our heart to fun
The world is not always about the things that are bad
We can raise our spirits
feel the wave
and be glad
enjoy the stillness of peace
and make the insanity cease.
Burns – Poem
As the world burns,
our eyes resting against the horizon
comfortably sitting with soft smiles
watching the flames lick at the starless sky.
It is difficult to discern between the clouds and the smoke
as it often is,
In life we face so many perils
the hardships are difficult to distinguish the good from the bad.
We blindly amble
smiles on our faces,
moving toward the maw of oblivion
we enter the mouth of annihilation
and we are consumed
What happens next?
Are we are reborn?
Do we reemerge?
ready and willing to face life again
able to cope, to handle all of its challenges
overcome all of its hardships
rediscovering how to survive and journey
thrive and give up worry
A Gargoyle beside Oblivion – Poem
The world can be a strange place, the kind where shadows move about believing they’re hidden.
Like a silvery little fish, so young and slick. Swimming with such serpentine grace it might make me sick.
If the desire is there, act on it, life is too short to sneak and hide.
Instead you move and dance, sneakily eating and thriving, simply trying to hide as you survive.
Fuck that man, do what you go to do. Be honest and straight with your words. There’s no shadow in the sky, no duck bill that’ll bite.
Your heart says “That shadow in the sky is a duck if I might surmise.” Don’t guess, if you must know, go and ask.
Don’t bask in the burning rays of fear. Live your life outward and well. Embrace the love in your heart. Don’t break your patterns and smiles because of expectation.
Most likely, what you expect isn’t what you’re going to get.
