Half Seen

Much is seen above,
less is visible below

Celestial thoughts 
have elevated luminosity
Subterreanean feelings
possess a catacomb void glow

The sun shines with sparkling clarity,
as rainbow-coated   ...

Disaster struck and were sad and glum;

Results had been grand total of the sum.

Aware of the drives
Why must I choose stories
To describe the irreconcilable feelings inside

Is it because of the efforts
Required to discern proof
Or fearing...

In ample ease


Discern the truth
In placid proof


Learn to unlearn
In touch that turns


Be true being
In your living


See that you see
True soul set free

The Sorcerer's Cloak

He concealed what had no truth,
it was an untruth that forged his power,
yet the concealment was believed
where nothing was concealed.

Beneath his cloak there lurked no...

The Paradox of Consciousness
by Kelly Hitchcock
The conscious beast
A paradox presides
Blessed to be aware
Cursed by blind drives

Arrogance and uncertainty
Pride profused with shame

Driving us covertly insane

We yearn for liberation

Illness of The World

and in the heart of all men

BROKEN
by Leon Enriquez



Jagged lines
Hurts cut
Deep pain
Sad poem


Hope lost
Joy drains
Life hangs
Pain splits


Too late
This crash
Blood spills
Kill joy


No more
Sad moves
Sense gone
Dead duck


Dung heap
Decay
Death styles
Dust heap


Void ease
Vast plunge
Drown deep
Jagged lines
