Our souls intertwine

as I begin to fall

the way the rain does

from the sky

 

A silent whisper from

the lips of heaven

speaks to you while

in a stillness warmth

I watch from afar

 

In the furious above

the thunder grows in a

steady pace, kept time by the

masters within

 

A curious moon loved by

the night knows how we

move to become

one

finally finding a center

We were not lost

We were simply not found

The paths are varied

and those whispers carried

through the air with fervent care

to let us know

we are still here

To fight and forage

amongst the shadows

To cast the mold

of future stories told

To lend hand

to someone in need

To balance justice and time

to hold onto truth

with all our might

I ask of you

to peer through the illusion

to see what can be done

if we simply come together,

come together as one

 

Homage to Dragondust and the rest ;)

In the corner of a room,

darkness blooms,

and grows into madness.

 

Laying awake with fears in thought,

another day in which i've fought,

I don't know how to survive.

 

Saying everything is alright,

but daylight soon turns to night,

and all the feelings come back,

and transform to black.

 

My only escape,

from the dead landscape,

is to sit alone and listen,

to the certain music,

that makes me forget my pain.

I've written a book, heavily inspired by our three heroes. It's called My Unintended, and you can read it on http://www.authonomy.com. Let me know what you think - I need all the support I can get :). Or if anyone is an agent or knows of one....:D

At first bite, I was taken

All of me, for the making

Innocent eyes

they shuttered

I ran so fast

feet left the ground

heart pounds once again

Oh, to be bitten

for a second time

without moments pause

I was yours for the taking

Stronger moments can define

of all your images in my mind

So run at rapid pace

to rescue my hardened heart

to revive these lifeless lungs

to protect what is yours and mine

to live in a moment

So divine

Through the storm

I trudge

alone

in a world so large

with one lone voice

that calls to me

 

the light in the break of clouds

a gentle breeze

amongst raging winds

 

You slow it down

and make me think

before I'm sent

right to the brink

 

To hold hands

under pale moonlight

an honor in the highest regard

as we forage through

the vacant rundown yard

You have already set in motion

your own self-defeat

getting lost in the ocean

Knowing you can navigate the course

though can you change your destination

A challenge presented

for a forward row

don't look back

just let them go

for when you learn

to turn the tides

a new horizon

appears before eyes

Fibrous and winding; scouring the blackened belonging

To the kindred knot, splitting and conjoining.

The beam hammers on, harrowed and entirely certain.

Potentially.

 

Fat rustles, the beam grows

Capillary function or balance?

Who cares now? The beam bursts, manifold light envelops then fades

From birth to the grave.

No torch this. I’m not playing... Not anymore.

 

It’s too late

The kitten’s teeth have been crushed

Gnawing on Rhianna’s tiny face

She’s been broken like a doll and

Escape is pointless

Because value has no value

And the tunnel grows darker.

 

The beam hammers down, lancing through the steady rush

Like cars trundling past

Like houses in a line

Like factories belching

Desecrating

While the keyboard fails

And I’m taxed by my own desire...

 

You wonder why you’re obsessed... You’re mad. Eyes rolling.

Teeth frothing acid.

Broken from beyond and into the fire.

But strong. Admittedly much... much stronger than me.

 

Once the salve to my soul

Sweetened mercury, quick-silver to those that play

Alien to me - I hear them asking questions

Always

Bringing back the questions

And all that is left now is to ask...

 

A tee-shirt I did not see

Detroit emblazoned across its sex

Unified

And marketable.

 

While laws are passed

1982

Thatcher/ Reagan

Beats.

Beats.

Beats.

 

Turn it off. Standby. Break ranks.

Hollywood and glimmering needles.

Showbiz - a blessing in a curse.

 

Find yourself first. Medically you’re mad.

Sensitive.

And loving, caring... the problem itself.

Bursting.

 

Broken by a world... Damn thing.

Damned broken world.

To bring succor is not discipline

And the true master is first of oneself.

 

This is freedom.

Be kind to yourself yes.

But there is no need to weather sentinel.

Abilify.

It works man...

The Odd

 

I am the strange

sitting near the edge

of tomorrow

 

Like me, you falter

living in these shadows of

the odd

 

The pain inside growing

without tears

You push me

to the edge of my reality

 

My insides speaking

to the sparkles in the sky.

 

Asking for them to rescue me

As I am

as you are

 

The odd.

Upside Down

 

 

Magical dew drops falling from the sky

Winter whispers in a dark and different way

 

You will find the nebulas dancing

in and out of sight

 

Real or imagined

we slip and slide

while the giant planets

sleep in the solar night

 

Together we dance

and we bathe in

the space of time

 

Do you know who you are?

 

How you shine

 

In the upside down

In the moonlight

where the mermaids swim

 

This land of make believe

The creatures here know your name

 

Wing-ed things calling from afar

their magic burnt on my soul

forever

 

Ancient warlocks casting shadows

Their black cats singing

to the violins

 

Now it's raining big blue diamonds

 

I see your reflection

in my shadow

guiding me

though life

 

This time

I know how to

make you stay

 

We'll swim in the oceans

of the magic of space

and we'll shine

 

We'll shine

Awesome! Thanks! Here is one that I feel has a lot of myself in it!

 

Cold Like This

 

Understanding the image inside a memory

visions become tarnished.

 

Discovering the picture

in the darkness of dust.

 

This story takes place in the mind

as the photo I stole of you

begins to fade.

 

Broken by the dream

the spirit torn apart.

 

Remembering that old letter

you sent that is now frozen

 

While you are gone, your silhouette

dances in the drops of rain

as they slowly melt into ice

 

It can only happen

when it is cold like this,

the moon is out and it is dark.

Color

 

My imagination spills into

your thoughts, slowly blending

together, creating a perfect shaded hue.

 

My asylum awaits within

as you reach deeper

into me.

Breaking out of reality as

we mix our selves together.

 

Closing in on me as our

minds touch

my insides rushing

to my face

I blush

 

Faltering on every word

as I speak to no one

I realize I am alone.

We walk in day

yet night falls all around

The tightrope slackens

fighting the urge to misstep

Our worlds wobble

teeter totter goes the mind

tightened ropes

make for easier travels

 

So close yet so far

inside/outside

over/above/below

in here, my heart, or out there

the fractal universe

to be discovered

hidden in the cold of night

lies supreme control

 

From smallest to largest unknowns

those principles that govern us

that hold and console

as we traverse the cliffs

on rope in wind

The abandon of delight

Churns emotion

Spurns the fight

 

Initiate cerebral toil

Emotion channel open

Fear nothing, say anything

just not goodbye

 

Draw the pictures

pleasing to the eye

Paint the page with words of might

Delve inside for secret delight

 

For mighty are we

When we stand true

unmatched by they

whom try to confuse

 

We are vast and many

We are strong and humble

We are silently loud

We are here to stay

No we're not

going away

I haven't enough time nor money to fret

My father taught me never bet but save

Yourself.

By his example of what not to do.

By this example love will lead you away

Can't help but say in loving kindness

Don't flatter those who can't pay back in kind

A choice is made I hope I'm wrong in my assumption.

We don't have to be slaves, doped to the grave

Sitting at the edge

I fell in

Surrounded by the sounds

of the universal symphony

Escaped from the chains that bound

run towards the threads that bind

for woven so delicately

of fine silk and softness

Andromeda she calls to me

Her sun, it morphs

being pulled by eternity

shaped and molded in perfections form

Wondering where her counterbalance lies

Is it ours, that guides

or does she posses her own strength bearer

That which molds in dark

Her other half

I've gone in seek

When I close my eyes I find my own words

what I feel in waves passed over my body

All I have, sometimes it hurts to inhabit, all I have

And all I will ever be.

So funny, nothing special, just flesh and bone

And a huge capacity, feeling and changing, I don't believe in the stories

That surround me, make me.

I am nothing but an ever changing thing, always moving till I stop for good.

I close my eyes and run through my words, a wish said with no power but with intent

May you be filled with peace love and joy. May you travel through your life without fear and pain.

Effigies propped and paraded

Examples of what could not be

All meant to tell that story

of what one can and cannot see

 

They had no chance

to turn around

They went full force

without that doubt

Those misguided youth

that you betray

to make them run to you

so in your arms they'll stay

 

The darkness falls

the curtain closes

hearing the sounds

of echo osmosis

turning the page

facing the fear

Impart your voice

to histories ear

I am not the prettiest picture

A book blown open resting on the worst page.

But Just like music following the master plan

unreachable highs and the lost lows

We can take time to consider the curve

A reward for the travellers who are

Perched on the stairs, skirt hiked up to thighs

As the eagle throws a victory V on the hem of the earth at the edge of the sky

Fear isn't an option for you and

Anyone who can look back once and not return.

 

 

Good luck with your travelling juju!

I've haven't really been inspired lately! I guess it's about me in a lot of ways but about anyone who is going through big changes that take courage.

 

I was on the train and it happened. The eagle thing is from a dream.

That is what it started with.

 

Hope you keep writing lovely poems you are very creative.
