If the risks of the honest lover are foolish, Then let me be a fool. What material pursuit Supersedes the substance of love? If shirking illusions of grandiosity To delve deeper into your pool Makes me blind, Then let me feel the way.
Seagulls glide inland, sweeping shadows over towers. Pieces of home seem to follow wherever you go-- Reminders of interconnectedness. The farther I drift, the more tangible love becomes. Undocking from this murky harbor Rekindles the bittersweet serenity of solitude. Silky poison softly bathes me in intoxication. The more I swallow, the deeper I slip into this moment. It opens up and stretches out, As I hop from one fiber of experience to the next. I watch existence unfold in swirling clouds as they drift by. Ants push soil through cracks in the colony To form new paths that support our flow. God lives in every window of this city. My consciousness fills each pore of this square Etched out of nothingness. Who is it that steps behind my waterfall of thoughts? The essence of cognizance that observes my monkey mind. It drills through the seams of these walls, Stretches over the vast landscape beyond paned glass. It peers up through the floorboards as I stretch my limbs, And lands on the ceiling while I sleep. It hopped into a milk truck in the shade of night To drunkenly lay by a fountain. Ants part around her like the sea. Their nurturing destruction shows her what it is to be. They gush like water through open channels As their movement carves the walls.
Bitterness oozed in with the birds Slipped into craters of my marrow Awareness scooped each crevice clean And their poesy penetrated softly They carry cells of your essence in their plumage To land like dew drops on my tongue This figurehead dove in solitude Submerged in privacy to play with bubbles of you Your letters brim with intimacy Peeling me from that bow Sucking fish bones and beetles from my neck Whisking my wooden limbs into waltz Stone in the gaze of that ivory court An iota of warmth melts away my defense Our dance is without expectation In pure creativity we flow
A butterfly flutters across the Atlantic Immune to the pandemic To put a smile on my face Staying with uncertainty My cells shimmer in golden sun Reflecting visions of tomorrow Letting go to have Lo que nunca será Y siempre fue Being here now To see a clear path forward-- The one that brought me here
I ran and strained Searching for a way Like Augustine Analyzing restlessness My confession is this: When the clouds Of shame and fear cleared My soul saw the truth The place I was running from Where my journey began Was what I was searching for All along The mind plays tricks The Universe jokes The truth is this: You are complete now Know that Feel it in time You are whole You are You You are Me We are We Stay in this truth Unapologetically Join the celebration Dare to live We will greet you With open arms
Venusian soil undulates giving way for your escape From these walls that contract without warning Sinewy mysteriousness descends upon my land A monolith among apes Pulses of panic arise soothed by swells of breath Understanding dawns to dissolve isfet Miss conception breeds fear Within ourselves and amongst each other Rooting into Earth salt spills and neurons fire Jolting me from present sensation I embrace this experiential reality With decreasing resistance Embodying mindfulness and compassion Always and unconditionally My neglected shell, Giving Tree Bruised and burned, never abandons me
He wears pompous well as I wear muse The act dissolves, and I feel used Grasping at love is a Catch-22 Ripe pain forsakes vine Burrows down to sprout through I surrender and I'm not afraid Fertility blossoms from cavernous shade I am the Zeitgeist Never been realer Potential, the drug Now forgiving the dealer If you seek permission, look inside What you need is within you The game is a lie Leap over the suffering Claim who you are Give it up already Everybody's a star
She marches into the world
A raw nerve
Spilling truth to inspire
Other arms of her being
To let down their masks
And see oneness.
In elaborate play,
With illusions of company.
Maybe one day
Our arms will retract.
Meandering tinted leaves Coaxing rays of tangerine Curiosity calmly crackles Transcendent tones Undomesticated prints Her sapient tonal hints Echo sacredly to soothe Our buzzing bones Sparkling turtle pond Reflective ripples from beyond Deeply douse me In playful invitation Emerging from my shady shell To sip from Our collective well Surrender daringly To pure collaboration
Pang, cells, pang! God whispered my name Now She's singing suggestions Of wanting
Kittenish stroll bursts stride Life verve astern eyes Soul oxygenized With wanting
Echo chamber falls mute Sour seeds sprout fruit Salivation ensues For what you want To want you too
