SEX

Same technique 
Different person 
It's not the same
Where are your kisses?
I can't find them anymore  

Do you fantasize when you finger paint?
Do you write my name with your tongue?  

Do you paint my curves 
My dimples  

On a different canvas 

Who do you see when you close your eyes?

A PATHWAY IN THE HILLS

A winding pathway up the hills
My weary eyes can see, 
It ambles up a rocky ledge
Then turns away from me; 

Beckoning to the horizon
It canters on its way, 
Soft grass and dewdrops lacing it
Gay butterflies at play; 

Vanishing beyond the ridge it
Drops to the other side, 
Where a meadow I fathom lies
With greenness astride; 

It cajoles me to follow it 
Through mist and dappled light, 
Till breathless on the windy peak
I see a heartening sight; 

Grey wisps of smoke through chimneys quaint
From cosy homesteads warm, 
Seems kind invitation I ought 
Accept without a qualm.

The wolf pt:1

You are my wolf
My serpent

The cloud blankets the sky, the sick realization that my vocabulary has run dry, nothing left to say..

My words vanished with the hollowness and drop to the ground with the thick density of the now stagnant air encircling me, trapping my very being from evolving.

I can't breathe, the air is too thick, it clings to my lungs not allowing me to exhale. 
I'm suffocating and watching it happen again and again from the outside.

Exhale... Inhale..

A breath, breathing.. Inhale, exhale.
it feels irrelevant now.
I suck dry the energy of everything around me and what do I give back?

Nothingness.
Like the place I am in now,
I cease to exist on this plain and I find myself thrust into another and fastened to it's very core.
This is where I will sit for eternity to face my demons that now dance before me..

Precious time

The sun is shining on us only if you want the light 
To touch you in the darkest days.
Please follow me to your precious time 
Of days that flow into the clock where the hands
Branch out like the waves of the sea, and the season 
Overshadowed with this sudden change of weather.
How do we get to know our precious time for telling
Us and warning our time flying by to see how we can
Have a second chance that is a blessing in disguise.
I'm hopeful for the next day after day until time runs 
Out of fear and forgiveness, life is given to us as a gift to the heart
Not a waste of numbers on the calendar for me to count.
Speak your mind and discipline your fingers to write down 
The words as a gift to the heart so our precious time
Is the evidence that bears our soul.

There is No Other Name That Opens Heaven's Gate

There is no other Name that opens heaven’s gate:

O sweet LORD Jesus, why did so much blood pour
O kind Jesus, how sweet the Father’s Love, His Door
Is flung open as you tore the veil, took sin and hate
For me – for whosoever will come to you – by the Holy Spirit

The axe forgets

The axe forgets

The axe forgets and soon forgiven,
Poor trees we know do not take to gun,
But work hard—no sad grin,
To keep planet’s plants green;
And sun sets for the day, its job done.
But we humans would not be like sun,
Nor trees that won’t be mean.

Dreamlands peaceful serenity

The noise was still & silencing 
As it echoed around the room.
And into the blindness of the dark night
I felt myself fall deeply into a minds peaceful, calm vacuum. 

As distant farout whispers, became voices 
Which I could faintly hear.
In foggy misted apparitions 
That slowly did appear.

So mesmerised in my calmness, peace of being
In my life well overdue.
& into its pure calmin serenity, 
I let my mind flow freely in its pursue.

I began to remember old values
That I'd lost along errors of lifes paths
In a time I'd let myself fall victim to its evil preying
Of a hatred in self loathings wrath's. 

But now lost in the freedom of escapism
Within my mind I'm freely set to roam.
Around the unknown calms of unknown territories 
Where I've never felt to be more of being at eases home.

I began rememberingmany lost memories 
That my past had let my mind in sadness be replaced.
Where all happiness & self worthin essence
By sins of the devils wraths & sadness had then replaced.

This was a time of much needed restfulness
Thatmy life had needed for so long.
To put to right the errors of past mistakes
And in a world again to feel I truly did belong.

PROPHETIC VISIONS

PROPHETIC VISIONS-

Through the abyss I fell,
 scarred with embers from hell,
 flames consumed,
 no escape,
 bound to be doomed,
 yet heart burning with faith,
 what can I sayeth,
 I had a prophetic vision,
 a new age will rise,
 God has a mission,
 his will I could'nt compromise,
 I saw a fallen nation,
 desecration,
 indoctrination,
 the time was near,
 suddenly hasten,
 chasten,
 abrasion,
 the fire it's a powerful sensation,
 no hesitation,
 darkness,
 cessation,
 spiritual revelation,
 creation,
 determination,
 angels awakened,
 transformation,
 thy will be done,
 stimulation,
 liberation,
 a dawn of a new civilization,
 a process of elimination,
 salvation,
 creation,
 imagination,
 no assumption,
 this is Gods decleration.
 Steady yourselves,
 for the time has come,
 the sum of all angels,
 is the sum of One.
 Earth shaken,
 foresaken,
 restoration,
 warriors in formation,
 preperation,
 implementation,
 damnation,
 compassion trumps all,
 evil will fall, 
 so stand tall,
 like the Apostle Paul,
 the glory of God,
 is the greatest glory,
 the greatest and most impenetrable wall.

Rape

The voices sounds familiar, the pain, the tears, the loss and gain thru the years. The success is near my tears are real the voices silence as my worse fear is revealed..... This voice repeats itself everyday i live, rape.....rape...rape was your fault stop shedding your tears.... come join me my child for I have seen the light the darkness has shed its darkest Knight, the tears mask the pain deep in my soul I close my eyes as he rapes my soul my innocence is gone my dignity has left I have nothing left he made me feel like I was nothing less; then a mirror image of what I could have been but truly I am abandon at the end. The medicine stops the voices of the pain forever the drinking helps, it helps me realize that I am sane. My innocence was taken the ones I love spoke some words that he shouldn't of...  his voice someone I hear every day telling me was my fault that I got raped. I dropped to my knees my soul left me for the one I love has betrayed me. I begged him please I'm begging please as I fell to my knees he put his hands upon my neck and choke until there was nothing left. Instead of running away I stayed as I stayed my soul stayed away for I was afraid I've been raped. And now I can't live another day  without hearing his voice saying I deserved  to be raped.

To My Ancestor Brothers and Sisters

Let the junky day pass
Much fret and tremor
The sound and fury
Shall die down
We shall return 
In our sleepy self
Sleep 
Deep sleep
And yet in deeper delve
We shall wake in time farthest
Our far ancestral fathers
and mothers
Are out on hunting
And we the eternal brothers
Hand in hand
Shall play
Shall paint the caves in mirth
When Our fathers and mothers
And the all
Are Gone to prey

Love's Betrayal

For to love is a curse, 
And to be enamoured, an hell
For it is better to have thine heart trodden over by chariots,
Than to be entranced by LOVE's deceitful spell.
For no matter how I yearn and try to make it last,
LOVE [always] twists and turns and escapes from my grasp...

Nature Trail

If eager goldfinch, looping and stitching
Through Hawthorn by urgent instinct driven,
Are a crimson surge; a secretive dash;
When summer scorches, it could be me.

If a dark lake’s troubled surface reflects
The dying sun’s final stony silence...
When time seems frozen in eternity.
As late November breaks, it could be me.

If gathering swallows in late autumn,
Scissor the night’s reddened skies seeking home
And darkening eves beckon them to rest.
When shadows slowly dance, it might be me.

But if spring’s cold earth breaks the winter’s fast;
Exploding in lush green...you’ll find me at last.

A Thrilling Blast

I have a box and that’s for a fact- 
from which an act is being lead.
With scripts of wild puns that overlap,
it banters back while remaining intact!
Equipped with taunting realizations that retort-
with hiss as they push its symbiotic nature to unfold.
You could hear them spell out exotic with every tap- 
just as with every punch line you wish to recant!
It makes you wish if only you could retract 
to every moment of surrender you’ve ever had! 
With it, all current gains seem like a slap- 
as it only speaks of what one had to forfeit.
It seeks the shadow to shed light- 
on spots that were once claimed devoid!
Still, it leaves souls so incandescent with its quip -
and for that, life is just a maze in a thrilling blast!!

My heart speaks

I heard you described me as gold
I heard you beautified me 
I heard you boasted about me
I heard you final declared your love towards me

Is it because you just realized that i am gone
That I am finally someone's galaxy
That I now reign in someone's heart
That I now have a kingdom to rule

Is it because my beauty has enhanced
That I now dress golden garments
That i wear a smile worth more than your pockets
That my body is perfumed expensively
That i no longer walk on common ground

Is it because i own the little mines you opened
Is it because my face is on the coin you have
Is it because she decorated your kitchen with my face

Is it because your memories are bitter
Is it because you want to reverse time
Is it because i did not fall when you pushed me down
Is it because you failed to love me

I heard you praised me
I heard you bought me a flower
I heard you prayed for my return
I heard you told them I loved you

The honest you did not tell them is
How you brutally hurt me
How you murdered my love
How you buried my heart
How you pushed me aside
And how you hid me with bruises

I heard you wrote me a note
But now I am gone
