Starkingly
Sinnisterly
Seductively
Silence Swells
Filling Mouth
Then Lungs
Caught
Shelved
Taking My Breath Away
Sadistically
Stunningly
Sharply
Causing Pain
And Pleasure
Pregnant Belly
Vacuous Womb
Undigested Feeling
Surfaced Toxins
Shatteringly
Scythingly
Until Surrendering
Sweetly Asunder
Dividing Into Wholeness
Fear strikes
Even the mighty
Fallen prey to evil
Casted aside
Shadows lurk
Seeking refuge
Within me
Lies of the truth
Good and evil
Cast shadows
Of light onto darkness
Illuminating its path
No better than
Only same as
Find our unity
Fighting will, stand by my side
Let my voice be heard
Maintain my authenticity
 
Thoughts tangled, dancing to and fro
Words strangled, I just never know
 
Thrown onto hot coals
My innards churn and burn
Bled until dead
 
I’m sore, numb, now cold
 
Let me comfort you
I implore you to let me in
Left rejected and stripped
 
Either way, love or hate
Your misery has sealed my fate
 
Every thought, every word
Every glance, every movement
Is offensive, a testament to the world’s hate
 
Ready to strike
With your deep-seated defense
Always filled with an unloved sense
 
Being me hurts you
Loving you hurts me
 
Distance is the way to be
Loving you always
With some sense of sanity
Sucking from her nipple,
the milk of repressed emotions
 
Distended belly bloated with anger
Umbilical cord severed
 
Choking on words
Not even my own
 
Voice of a different generation
Breathing fire cauldron
 
Sticky tar boils over
Attached to the pain
 
Nourished only
By the memory of a dream
 
Bitten by love’s venom
Life as the only antidote
 

rootsinhell

Wrapped in Mother Nature’s embrace
Her winds whistle warm whispers
 
Branches swaying, rock-a-bye baby
Frolicking fairies fawn and flatter
 
Sinking into a soundly slumber
Curling into folded fetal position
 
Hibernating deep within her womb
Healed by her magic kisses
Awakened by the serpents hisses
 
Swirling sounds of sirens surround
A fire burns fierce and bright
 
What happened to my Garden of Eden?
How did my Heaven turn into this Hell?

shadow

As each day passes, the light becomes brighter
Bringing clarity to matters of heart and head
That once seemed impossible to figure out
Leaving me wonder how long I must tread
 
Toiling and troubling, my mind would circle round
Trying to make sense of the direction I should take
And examining the hidden messages
To learn of the lessons, for my own sake
 
With Pluto demanding  nothing but the truth
I’ve been forced to face the shadows of darkness and death
Shut away and hidden, rejected and repressed
Always preventing me from complete soul’s rest
 
Now I know, without a shadow of a doubt
That you were all part of the cosmic plan
Reflecting the parts of which I had been so ashamed
I confronted them one by one, lifting their perennial ban
 
Slowly, I resuscitate each and every part of me
Breathing life into every crack, crevice and corner
I implore them for their forgiveness and understanding
And with such simplicity, I have paid the debt I incur
 
With humility and gratitude, I receive such grace
To unlock myself from these chains
Giving myself the choice of being
I have fallen in love with freedom’s taste
 
LOVE YOUR SHADOW.
 
With Love,

line

Filling the space between and within
Deep-seated feelings of unlove
Projected out into the world
As her plea for validation
 
She gives endlessly
To everyone but herself
Hoping to be loved
And to find her belonging
 
A brick wall protects her heart
From feeling broken and sad
Building resentment and frustration
Which makes everything mad
 
Sensitivity goes hand in hand
With heightened defensiveness
Creating mile high barriers
With little understanding
 
Words become misconstrued arrows
Of slight, hurt and slander
Actions become misunderstood slings
Of attack, aggression and anger
 
There is no in-between
Always just black-and-white
The difference between good and bad
Will always justify the fight
 
The emotional rifts widen
To expose her soft-belly core
But soon thereafter comes a rumbling
Whose tsunami flows can’t be bore
 
Her heart is pure and golden
Carrying the best of intentions
It’s the weight of inconsequence
That always makes her strive for recompense
 
I open my heart, working to be soft and kind
But can no longer bear her pain
I shed her fears and insecurities
It’s my own progress that I must gain
 
Thank you deeply for your love
The time has come for me to say goodbye
To the relationship that once seemed to serve
There is a new dawn, a new age with no more lies
 
REDFINE THE LINE.
 
With Love,
