My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

This morning

speaks of blaming left-hemisphere dominant GodVoices:

Premium Member Artist Tries Something New
eyelash fury wondering what has happened
seeking absolution
her dark nostrils flaring
raw pencil shaded face
artist holds her gently
balanced by flower pistons
teardrop pendant holds her place
madness or sensibleness?
the artist laughs at her risk-taking prowess
trying something new, enticing the masses
encouraging others to
live outside the...Read More

The snow laden sky hangs heavy,
as if bowing under a burden
of unconfessed sins
it cannot discharge.

Pregnant clouds 
drag their swollen bellies
over fallow fields
that lie waiting for absolution.

Ghost of Harriet Harris doth not countenance monetary largesse
After about fifty years as married wife
the last three fraught with strife
obvious telltale signs of terminal illness rife
hysterectomy irrevocably didst jackknife
at the least severely incapacitated
think pitted, riddled,
and rounced her tortured life.

Ovarian cancer affliction

Locusts feeding on the blood of moons
Children limping towards never
Without shoes or clues
Watch blind prayers vanish as said
Sleep deeply with the stars
Know how hunger squeezes far statistics
How throwing away is preferable 
And how quickly city-pigeons get fat ;

Gods are for...Read More

Congratulations its a boy
Hi there new born baby, welcome to your life,
Off to work tomorrow, mother’s got no choice,
Your at the teats, sister’s slung around her back,
Ten hours in the field, gathering god knows what,
She’s pregnant again, another one’s in the pot.

Shades of contemplation
Some lights in the light have enlighten visibility,
like a fallen star seeming incredible.
The fly by of a wishing well,
so much about yourself it can tell.
The constant maternity towards the ultimate light,
is the absolute vulnerability to the ability of all might.

From glowing shapes come seven tubes 
With no apparent connection ,  but stable nonetheless 
A tightly woven exterior shimmering without cause
Vanishing into something invisible 
Something far beyond our comprehension 
Something of great importance 
Of possibilities no god can understand...Read More

Premium Member Wages of Sin

Sin comes in many vivid colors
Lies of brightest purple and aqua
Adulteries of both blue and red
Anger that has hues of green to dread

Sin happens when a heart goes off course
Toward a mischief that leaves brokenness
Amid the feelings there are atrocities...Read More

Denying the truth is deceitful

Evil and goodness cannot co-exist

Counterfeit is a substitute for the real

Erroneous information can be misinformation

Ignorance is neither blessed nor blissful

'Truth is not absolution' is becoming the new normal

Fake and falsification will destroy a society

Undermining reality is...Read More

moving as silently as a little mouse.

Murders committed
Every day
No deterrent
Or absolution

Though likely caught
No fear exists
Your imprisonment
Due blessing

To live akin
Your own type
Life’s obligations

While human rights
Your protection 
And salvation

Your victim
Buried deep
Is laid to rest 
Departed heaven

Will you revel 
In empathy
As sorrow
They can not know

As loved ones 
Visit gravesides

Ice Nine Part 2

Frigid metals twist like 
Banshees in shriek,
Making all who hear it fear it's threatening speech.
Cognitive cogs, turning out torture-
instigating further madness noir.
Pale green and gold in it's likeness.
Promulgated sickness.
Rusted iron dust to waft in the air,
wasping the lungs in claustrophobic-
Gnatly...Read More

Rage! Rage! This angst, oozing from yawning deep, 
Render to numbness, silent cornered weep, 
Iniquitous decrees, when lulled to sleep, 
Seduced by dybbuks, only vice to reap, 
At impasse is reason in chaotic sneap, 
Battle! Battle! Wrought courage to muster,...Read More

Two cries from the same city
Seated on a colt, entered He the great city,
Divinity rides in simplicity.
The boisterous crowd cheered vigorously,
His triumphant entry as His foes watched furiously.
“Hosanna in the Highest!” They chanted in harmony
To His glory they recited the Messianic symphony:
“Blessed is He that...Read More

A Catholic Girl's True Story

I was only nine, when I was
denied absolution!
I had eaten meat on on a 
Friday,  tsk,tsk.
To burn in hell 'twas the
Priest's resolution?

Daddy raged at the Chancery
How dismayed he was at all 
I  had to go back to the...Read More

Absolution, A Tonic
The time has come for confession.
It's time for the terrible shocks,
that I'm spreading to Father O'Leary
inside his confessional box.

Father soon gave me the lead,
promising his healing ear,
but I just hope he's prepared
for what he's going to hear.

'Forgive me Father I've...Read More

Realising there is no choice or other way

I stretch a coursing arm

My fleshy tendril of electric actuality
Spanning fingers wide to encompass my quarry
I touch the tapestry of you, a silken warmth of anticipation
Digits close around absolution and imagination

And I draw it all gently, quietly into the blackness
