Her Laughter; My Master

I exist inside a plain of doppelganger, doppelgangers,

That those in my inner circle can see,

But she, she moves me,
With a kindness only a mother can understand,

She touches my darkness with light,

Illuminating the invisible,

Decimating the appetite for destruction,

With a deft touch,

As gentle as a morning wind sweeping the sea,

Yet as vicious as a strengthening storm,

A dichotomy that seems oxy moron,

Yet is the stable prerequisite of love’s necessary refrain,

I am here,

I am here,

For you,

With you,

Of you,

Her laughter,

With pursed lips and widening eyes,

Like a siren and a muse,

Reaches deep within the void of my gloom,

Tickling with subtle insinuation, beyond words,

Beyond intent,

The clenched paw of Cerberus,

My nonpareil Black Dog and constant companion,

Around the chains of my chemical tempest,

Breaking them, confounding him, indeed them,

Her laughter,

With piercing resolve to lighten my load,

In the absence of mitigating words,

Her face twists and turns stunningly,

And a primal surge wells within,

Released to an awaiting beast, beasts,

My vicious inward aspersions cast,

While my imaginary friends call for impossible results,

A permanent darkness,

Replaced by,

Her laughter,

Like the sweet scent of lavender in Provence,

Or dew kissed roses in spring,

Demanding rapt imagination,

Eyes closed,

She transports me from the personal hell,

To a pivotal heaven,

Each ethereal laugh like the pluck of a minstrel’s string,

Or Nina’s voice,

Tugging through the fog of my decay,

Planting seeds that sow a temporary reprieve,

A kindness known so rarely in occasion,

Expressing the ultimate shift of a soul in flux,

A soft hammer when Father Time demands,

Stillness when Mistress Fate decides,

A grandiose calmness that unwinds the havoc,

And wreaks hope on this heavy heart, downtrodden,

Uplifted by the sweet caress of language beyond words,

Meaning beyond understanding,

Wisdom beyond years,

For in the kindness of this mother’s laugh,

Rests something more powerful than all the armies,

Standing and past,

Lives something more encompassing,

Than misfiring neurons and atomic practical jokes,

Her laugher unleashes a storm of optimism,

Tangible,

Within reach,

That if I can abide this one moment more,

Just one more moment,

Internal clouds will fade,

Sirens will subside,

Resplendent Muse emerging,

And in that moment, grace descended,

I am free from I and I,

From torment,

From words,

From language,

Yet filled with unseen troughs of majestic communiqué,

Liberated,

She knows,

Her laughter,

The penultimate gift to me,

The reminder of a life worth living,

Faith restored,

Where once again words have meaning,

But not one,

More than the prehistoric surge,

Of her liberating laughter.

Mens Rea and Mea Culpa

“Since we are not yet fully comfortable with the idea that people from the next village are as human as ourselves, it is presumptuous in the extreme to suppose we could ever look at sociable, tool-making creatures who are from other evolutionary paths and see not beasts, but brothers, not rivals, but fellow pilgrims journeying to the shrine of intelligence…The difference… is not in the creature judged, but in the creature judging.” Demosthenes

Human beings, Brothers and Sisters all,

United in faith,

Lend me your eyes and ears,

That perchance I may open your hearts and minds,

For I sit before you,

Writing,

From an Ether you may not understand,

Words that may shock and awe you,

Frighten or excite you,

But surely must make you think and feel,

That something is truly wicked at play,

That causes me a guilty mind and I admit my faults,

Will you?

Brothers and Sisters,
where is your humanity?

Brothers and Sisters are you united in faith?
Agnostics,
Atheists,
Baha’i,

Buddhism,

Christianity,

Confucianism,
Hinduism,
Islam,

Jainism,

Judaism,
Shinto,

Sikhism,

Taoism,

And Zoroastrianism?

For what is faith,

A set of beliefs based on trust,

A loyalty or covenant with that which you hold most dear,

Guided by a set of commandments,

Tenets,

Or rules,

That set the course by which you live your lives,

Faith;

Confidence,

Reliance,

Conviction,

Assurance,

Without demanding proof,

Thousands of years,

Billions of people,

Whom I admire for their ‘faith’

And yet fear for the same,

For in the blind willingness of the oppressed,

By the oppressor, to believe in afterlives,

That will punish or reward the life you lead today,

You relinquish your personal responsibility,

To the very deities your faith is due,

You turn dimwitted,

Sightlessly guided by the hounds of war,

Unleashed by your acquiescence,

Clearly in defiance of whatever God in which you choose to believe,

And while I would like to despise you,

Hate you and have chickens come home to roost for YOUR crimes,

Against humanity and every species on this great Earth,

Instead as Chosen Light, Warrior Poet and rational man,

Communicating with billions of years of history,

The Ether and my delusions grand,

I say unto you,

I have a guilty mind and admit my faults,

And I am neither the first nor the last,

Seeking a world that your faith preaches,

Here and now,

On this imperiled earth,

On which you seem to be living for the dying,

In faith of something better,

That each of you,

United,

Could create here on earth,

Loathe or bemoan you,

NIGH,

For I seek to reach inside your soul,

Peer inside your faith,

Illuminate ideas old in ways new,

That maybe you will wake up,

To see and then act upon,

The nightmare that has been upon us since long before my birth,

And with your inaction will continue unabated,

I have a guilty mind and admit my faults;

Do you?

“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:

Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;

Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;

Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;

Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;

Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;

Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.” Marcus Tullius Cicero

Millennia after millennia,

Brothers and Sisters,

Humanity by its very nature continues to make mistakes,

For to err is part of our condition,

A natural course of trial and error,

In which we are supposed to GROW,

Being better today than we were yesterday,

Paying it forward to ourselves AND future generations;

In that way again I admit I have a guilty mind and admit my faults,

And yet we continue with the ever increasing devastation of war,

Allow people to starve or die from drought,

We use as weapons, classism, sexism, racism and all isms,

To DOMINATE over humanity,

For this I am not guilty, as I choose to set humanity on a course,

Of liberation,

Through dialogue and perhaps even diatribe. .

The only real personal gain to be made,

Is in discovering what lay within,

Not due to faith or scripture,

But through daily efforts,

Uncovering the veracity that is inside you,

The naturally imbued gifts, talents and wonders you are,

The passions that drive you,

Those are the betrothal of your experience to unbridle upon,

Your Brothers and Sisters all,

For the common and noble goal of mutual benefit,

Through self sacrifice,

Rather than the glorification of our current systems,

Filled with deadly sins,

Perhaps none higher than sloth, gluttony, pride and greed,

The perpetuation of myths and legends,

Older than our language systems,

Perhaps even older than our groans and grunts,

Our earthly salvation lay in overcoming these ancient beliefs,

That we need what they have,

And if we can not buy it, or steal it,

We must crush those so we may take it freely and without recourse,

Let alone remourse,

I am guilty and admit my faults,

Can and will you,

Rise up and stop the madness of the endless tyranny of war,

Intergenerational,

Millennial,

That which seeks to benefit the few,

While giving crumbs or death to the rest?

Brothers and Sisters of faith,
We all worry,

It is a natural state of our consciousness,

To become concerned with things outside of our direct control,

And yet,

It must be clear to those of you taking the time to read and hear these pleas,

Ninety eight percent or more of our worries,

Never come to light,

And only serve to have us chained,

Like slaves inside caves seeing shadows,

Shadows that are not there,

Stultifying us and preventing our actions,

To unshackle that which could so easily be sloughed away,

I have a guilty mind and I admit my faults,

Can and will you?

Brothers and Sisters of faith,

All things seems impossible until they are done,

Allowing a detrimental and devious mental state,

To prevent our advancement based on a terror of the impossible,

Unsettles future generations,

Dismisses our children’s passions

And sets us on a course of self fulfilling prophecy,

The most vile, disgusting and defiling word in any language,

A contraction,

Is can’t,

For we are a wise animal,

ANIMAL,

Imbued with consciousness, rationality, reason and thought,

We are capable of a great and many things that while you may not conceive,

Through faith must believe,

We can and will achieve,

If we put our minds to it,

I have a guilty mind and admit my faults,

Can and will you?
Brother and Sisters of faith,

Filled with trivialities that divide and conquer,

Purpose built by design to imprison your minds,

Convince you of truths that are wicked by strategy,

The colour of our skin is nothing more than pigmentation,

Our religions are through birthright, Manmade,

And the lottery of birth,

Driven by artificial geographical boundaries,

That can not be seen from space,

These trivialities are nothing more than infantile structures,

Convinced by powers you refuse to accept,

Despite your continued faith,

To acknowledge let alone stand up against,

If you cut me I bleed,

I have a brain, a mind,

Two eyes,

Two ears,

A nose,

A mouth,

Two lungs,

Two kidneys,

A liver,

And a heart,

AS DO YOU,

Our preferences hold no place in our collective humanity,

We are all the same,

And it is only dark powers that seek to drive that out of us,

I have a guilty mind and admit my faults,

Can and will you?

Brothers and Sisters of faith,

The developments of the last one hundred years,

Have driven us further apart in our shared humanity,

The development of the radio and television, the internet,

Have illustrated the great horrors of the wicked amongst us,

That seek a cruel reign of evil,

By feeding your mind with the innocuous,

The vacuous and down right foolish,

Distracting you from freeing yourselves,

By using the one thing that can set us all free,

Into a beautiful world today,

Not in some storied paradise, but today,

The human mind is much more understood than you realize,

And that truth is used against you daily, every minute,

To make you afraid,

To move you away from personal advancement through study,

To force upon you specialization rather than generalization,

Giving you tools that were supposed to set us on a course of passions,

But instead has made many of you slaves,

With invisible chains,

Obedient,

“Look, listen, kneel, pray, it’s all right there… commercials”
Having faith in your Gods and your leaders,

To lift you up from your station,

Rather than yourselves, no personal stake,

Rather than taking the easy step of reading,

BLESSED reading,

Voraciously like a computer designer,

Inputting code,

Called language into your minds,

Language made of words,

Words are power,

So long as you know their meaning,

The syntax and structure,

READ EVERYTHING,

Regardless of how disgusting it is to you,

Books are not banned for what they say,

But for ideas that they present,

Ideas contrary to those who seek to enslave your minds,

And your bodies,

The only cure for stupidity and ignorance,

Is not faith,

But MORE reading (thank you Mother),

Mother, for my life and this love of words, I love you;
The only cure for the ills of the world today,

Is more reading, more dialogue, discussion, not devastation,

That you may understand the wickedness you face daily,

And act in accordance with ideas and wisdom,

Rather than spoon fed exploitations that will ultimately cost your lives,

Here I am not guilty,

However I admit I have read extensively, your books,

And those that insult my soul,

So I may find personal enlightenment,

Can you say the same?

Brother and Sisters united in faith,

Your God is not better than their God,

There is only objective truth, not subjective,

While I put my faith in humanity,

I am slowing loosing it to the indifference of you,

YOU,

Those of faith,

Allowing atrocities committed in your names,

We are all born naked and will return to the universe,

You can lead a horse to water,

But you can not make it drink,

Therefore I can not compel you to think or act any differently,

Especially through the use of permanent force,

The will of your mind is far too strong for such tactics,

A mind closed should also have a mouth closed,

But an open mind,

Can and will change the world,

Not compelling but instead leading those out of the darkness,

Like a Prophet or Sheppard,

Brothers and Sisters,

Will you follow to your slaughter or lead to your salvation,

Here too I am not guilty though I admit my faults,

And you?

“People should either be caressed or crushed. If you do them minor damage they will get their revenge; but if you cripple them there is nothing they can do. If you need to injure someone, do it in such a way that you do not have to fear their vengeance.” Niccolò Machiavelli

Brothers and Sisters united in faith,

Powers and principalities,

Vicious devils in beautiful dress,

With wordsmith caressed speeches,

Propagandizing you to inaction,

While at their behest,

You send your families to fight,

When our systems of manipulation and bribery can not caress,

You allow your family members,

To be burned, crushed and killed,

As canon fodder,

For leaders, religious, spiritual, economic, political and communal,

That DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU,

I have been inside their promised land,

Witnessed their evil designs,

Read their wicked words,

And was repelled by them,

They care not about you,

But of their own avarice, iniquity and longevity,

And like fools all,

You believe their packaged lies,

You buy their product of war,

When they pretend that they are doves,

With olive branches,

You refuse to accept your culpability in the actions of the state,

You refuse to accept your culpability in the actions of leaders,

You refuse to accept your culpability in the actions of corporations,

When these are YOUR creations,

These earthly devils that rob you of paradise,

You have been convinced the problems are too big,

That you do not understand,

Too difficult or unsolvable,

YET you still believe that those you vote for can and will deal with them,

These millionaires and the billionaires that put them there,

That,

That my friends,

Is the very definition of Faith,

And now, you must understand why I have none,

Why I write these words,

Why I fight this fight,

Because faith has blinded you in ways you do not even see,

Because rather than informing yourselves,

You allow yourselves to be informed,

By people duty driven to misinform you,
I have no faith and for that I am not guilty,

Though I accept my faults,

My personal responsibility for the actions which I have been a part,

All of them,

Openly and with as much grace as possible,

And you?

“Whatever goes upon 2 legs is an enemy.

Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

No animal shall wear clothes.

No animal shall sleep in a bed.

No animal shall drink alcohol.

No animal shall kill any other animal.

All animals are equal.” Orwell

Brothers and Sister united in faith,

Just as Orwell’s commandments changed,

For the benefit of the few,

Why do you so callously believe,

YOUR commandments are not abused and used against you,

What is your Mens Rea? What of your Mea Culpa?
That is, in allowing these continued atrocities in your names.

“One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.”
Aldous Huxley

Brothers and Sisters united faith,

That which has been conditioned can be unconditioned,

Turn off your TV,

Stop listening to the ever repeated lies,

Inform yourselves,

Open your eyes,

READ and QUESTION everything,

EVERYTHING.

“With school turning out more runners, jumpers, racers, tinkerers, grabbers, snatchers, fliers, and swimmers instead of examiners, critics, knowers, and imaginative creators, the word ‘intellectual,’ of course, became the swear word it deserved to be.” Ray Bradbury

Brothers and Sisters united in faith,

In a storm,

Such as the one gathering now,

And only going to get worse,

On rocky waves and dangerous seas;
“Believe in God BUT row AWAY from the rocks.”

And yet it moves.

Gods & Generals – Psychopaths and Fools

People of faith –

Whether Yahweh, God or Allah,

Heed these words,

For they are the tears of my soul,

And of the countless millions the world over,

Whose blood has shed and whose words you will never hear,

Those die because your faith is used,

As a powerful manipulative deception,

To cover up countless lies and conspiracies that imperils us all,

By refusing to accept reality,

Worldwide,

YOU are complicit in the slaughter,

YOU are responsible for allowing injustice to continue unabated,

YOU can create a lasting peace,

Without the need for us to drive the throngs,

Into a final battle in your imagined end times,

Perhaps,

This REVELATION and those herein contained will expose,

The disguise the devils here on earth wear.

“THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” Edward Bernays

WHO rules your country?
Men and women who feign faith,

And believe me they do,

So many are atheists but can never admit it,

For YOU would not vote for them,

(and I know this first hand)

In order to get your votes,

Which have now become nothing more than a game of chess,

More often than not those who oppose this ruling elite,

Are legally, legally being disenfranchised,

Imprisoned, defamed or worse targeted for death,

This does not suggest,

As fools would have you believe that you should not vote,

You must register; you must vote, you must make your voices heard,

Though not just in that antiquated booth,

But where it matters most in our crumbling system (s),

Our festering and decayed pantheons of power,

Now usurped,

Vote with your dollar,

Put your money where your mouth is and watch,

How very quickly things can and will change,

For the very same chaos THEY seek to create worldwide,

Can be used against THEM with incredible force and

Beautiful results.

“Every age that has historical status is governed by aristocracies.

Aristocracy with the meaning – the best are ruling.

Peoples do never govern themselves. That lunacy was concocted by liberalism. Behind its “people’s sovereignty” the slyest cheaters are hiding, who don’t want to be recognized.” Joseph Goebbels

The best are not leading,

Our so called are not leading but following,

The will of masters many of you don’t even believe exist,

And the story remains the same,

The EXACT forces of manipulation today,

Have been used since time immemorial,

Only improved by the miracles of technology,

YET,

You,

Sit there is quiet disbelief,

Malignant tumors to your own faith,

As you ALLOW yourselves to wear invisible chains,

Mortgages – literally translated – Mortus:
DEATH,

Living for the dying,

As you sit stupefied in front of tools of mass hysteria,

Purpose driven and designed to inflict the most callous of results,

FEAR and CONSUMPTION,

Ever new and improved boogey men and ever new and improved toys,

To distract you,

From truth so obvious, so apparent, so right in front of your nose,

You cut it off to spite your face

AND though many will read these words as harsh,

Or even perhaps, as THEY would like, untrue,

As slaves unaware of the realities of an organized few,

YOU are allowing the slaughter of innocents,

YOU are responsible for the wars of aggression,

YOU are responsible for allowing your chains to remain,

But there is hope,

Should you wake up.

Call me names,

Those used by the manipulators to dismiss people like me,

Feel free,

For I know my reason and purpose,

I also know the meaning of my name,

So call me what you like,

For I,

Nosce Te Ipsum.

“This practice of creating circumstances and of creating pictures in the minds of millions of persons is very common. Virtually no important undertaking is now carried on without it, whether that enterprise be building a cathedral, endowing a university, marketing a moving picture, floating a large bond issue, or electing a president. Sometimes the effect on the public is created by a professional propagandist, sometimes by an amateur deputed for the job. The important thing is that it is universal and continuous; and in its sum total it is regimenting the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments the bodies of its soldiers.” Bernays

You are and have been lied to,

Consistently and ever more effectively,

Your entire lives,

Differences created and justified,

Used as pretexts for any number of inhuman acts,

That should insult your faith,

Let alone your humanity,

Polarities – Democracy and Communism,

Axis and Allies,

COKE OR PEPSI,

People the world over,

The lies, so often repeated, have become truth,

At least to those who accept freely,

The words of puppets dressed in suits,

In front of teleprompters,

Demonstrating, in open ways,

The tools of your own oppression,

While you, like school children, watching,

Giggle because someone has just farted,

Death, destruction, famine and drought,

WAR,

Presented to you like entertainment,

With devastating effect as the dehumanization of those affected,

Has you eating McDonald’s or cake,

As you enjoy your bread and circuses,

Like cows unaware of their impending slaughter,

The lies have grown,

But the liars remain the same,

The lies are used to create a human pogrom,

Where we all live in gulags,

However beautiful our white fence,

Constantly in fear,

BUT consuming,

Hook, line and sinker the hyperbole and rhetoric,

NEW AND IMPROVED,

Idiots all,

Despite the efforts of the few,

Trying to bring light,

Where now darkness reigns.

“In some instances the power of invisible wirepullers is flagrant. The power of the invisible cabinet which deliberated at the poker table in a certain little green house in Washington has become a national legend. There was a period in which the major policies of the national government were dictated by a single man, Mark Hanna. A Simmons may, for a few years, succeed in marshaling millions of men on a platform of intolerance and violence.”

These platforms of intolerance and violence today;

CNN,

FOX,
ABC,
NBC,
CBS,
MSNBC,
AL JAZERRA,
RT…

The New York Times
The Guardian

The People’s Daily

The Washington Post

The Wall Street Journal

Le Monde

The UN
WTO,

WHO,
World Bank,
IMF,

EU,
NAFTA,
CAFTA,

TPP!

And this list is merely for illustration.

People of faith,

How can you allow this to continue,

You number more than half of our seven billion,

Your faith being used as a weapon against you,

Could so easily be turned against these invisible forces,

That I can, have and will continue to expose,

And yet you stand still,

Doing nothing,

While professing The Lord, your true God, Allah or Yahweh’s teachings,

Are sacrosanct in your lives;

Perhaps the geopolitics of your existence escape you,

And it would be easier, or more palatable, if localized,

Easy enough for me,

What do you do when you see a homeless man on the street?
What do you do when you see someone who needs help?

A man or woman with no shoes?
A person being discriminated against?
A woman being beat?

These are but a few examples that show the vacuous nature,

Of your so called faith,

And perfectly demonstrates, illuminates and shines,

On how the callous amongst us,

Are so easily able to kill children whether from bombs, bullets,

Lack of water or food,

You say you give to the Church,

The Church has ENOUGH,

Christ according to scripture;
Matthew 21:12:

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves”

Is it not time for you,

People of faith,

To cast out those that subjugate you and all those you know,

Overthrow the tables of Wall Street, the World Bank and the IMF,

Usurious organizations that enslave you,

With an imaginary creation called DEBT,

Privatizing profits while socializing losses,

And though it pains me to say,

It seems now there are not enough doves,

You, the people,

To stand up against the war hawks,

Fighting in your name and with your money,

Go on and read Matthew 21:13, I dare you.

“The tendency of big business is to get bigger. Through mergers and monopolies it is constantly increasing the number of persons with whom it is in direct contact. All this has intensified and multiplied the public relationships of business.” Bernays

Viewed in a universal sense,

Even a child can understand how small our Spaceship Earth is,

However, here, the world is a big place,

And the one world sought by the powers that be,

With pretty words that have changed over time,

The current meme Globalization,

Demonstrates big business wants to get bigger,

Government is big business,
Politics is big business,

Media is big business,

Oil is big business,

Food Supply is big business,

The Military Industrial Complex is the biggest business,

And the distribution of public wealth,

Into private hands, limited,

Whether shareholder or owner,

Each of these big businesses seek to get even bigger,

Despite obvious and apparent truths such that infinite growth,

Can and never will be sustained,

In a world of finite resources,

And please, open your eyes,

Follow the money and realize that each of these BIG businesses,

Is directly or indirectly interwoven with each other,

And ALL profit from the same strategy orchestrated,

By those that have been in power since long before Bernays wrote these words.

“No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and cliches and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.

Fortunately, the sincere and gifted politician is able, by the instrument of propaganda, to mold and form the will of the people.” Bernays

Sincere and gifted politicians:

Abraham Lincoln
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Malcolm X

Martin Luther King Jr.
Robert Kennedy

Mahatma Indira Gandhi
Yitzhak Rabin

Benazir Bhutto

Get the idea,

Those who stand up for the people,

And are willing to move away from the norm?

“The normal school should provide for the training of the educator to make him realize that his is a twofold job: education as a teacher and education as a propagandist.” Bernays

Everything you learned is school,

Is a lie,

The entire purpose of education,

As it is today,

Is not to inform,

Is not to create critical thought,

It is to maintain the status quo,

To create obedience,

Mindlessness,

To babysit,

To ready our greatest treasure to enter to slave force,

Questioning nothing,

When EVERYTHING should be questioned,

QUESTION EVERYTHING.

People of faith,

Why do you allow this to continue,

Why do you not stand up,

Why do you accept like sheep your slaughter,

Because the Sheppard told you so?
With promises of a paradise after this life?
What God, I beseech you, pray tell me,

Would promise paradise after life,

When life itself could be paradise?

Perhaps you should reexamine your beliefs and what you think you know,

For the world,

Is hell,

Because you allow it to be so,

When it could so easily be a paradise,

If you used the combined power of your voices,

Rather than infighting,

If you truly loved your children,

You would demand, fight and die for change,

But what do you do instead?

I titled this on purpose,

As all writers do,

I could have,

And perhaps should have,

Just left it at that,

To get you to think:

GODS AND GENERALS

PSYCHOPATHS AND FOOLS!

Holy Trinity of Love

Love is holy,
And only love,
Makes my blood boil,
And my fingers somehow cold,
For the measures of faith,
In the obscure remnants of a life once lived,
Long ago,
Understanding the compromise of time,
Where there can be no give,
No compromise,
As we march toward our intent,
In this divinity,
Misunderstood pleasure,
That heightens our every waking thought,
Brightening our senses,
Disarming our objections,
And guides our every wildest fascination,
A dream within a dream,
Time our constant enemy,
In the decay of the reasons,
That we find to fall in and out of love,
As plentiful as there are people on this earth,
One does not attempt to love,
One either does or does not,
And while we can feign for a time,
In the solitude of our own considerations,
The need to consume and protect the avail of surrender,
Is timeless,
Is endless,
Is as sincere as the fleeting catch and release,
Of hedonistic design,
Of emotional bondage,
Choosing to roll over and play dead,
Settling for less than we are worth,
More than we imagined,
More than we have faith in,
Just more,
And while we may truly seek the answer,
To love,
Its holy trinity,
Of passion, intent and desire,
Is as muddled and unclear,
As the tomes of my endless volumes,
Page after page,
Of seeking,
Of searching,
Of finding an abiding faith,
That somewhere between now and oblivion,
The lasting hope of my sweetest thoughts,
Will render me,
Faithful,
In the pursuit of my divine,
Love,
Only love,
Captured in this ridiculous sentiment,
That is really,
A notion yet understood,
In the abiding solitude,
Alone,
With my thoughts,
And these notions,
Simply complex notions.

The Very Thought Of You…

Even in passing,
The murmured scent of you,
The nonplused glance,
You make my heart skip beats,
One after another,
Having seen in you,
What I’ve seen but once before,
And not for a decade or more,
The thought of you sends me to the moon,
A real landing,
Not supposed,
Where I can filter freely through you,
And you through I,
Together,
Two wayward lovers,
Searching for that something more
That we both know exists,
But we can’t face,
Not now,
Not here,
Not yet,
Scared though we may be,
But we need to have faith,
Our faith,
Immutable,
That we have each other,
No matter what,
My thoughts of you,
A lifetime,
A moment,
A nanosecond,
Better than none at all,
For you,
For you I would,
For you I will,
Can you see,
Can’t you see,
Busted as I am,
Open for you,
Lover,
Muse,
Real,
Together,
For each other,
The very thought of you.
