songs of destiny, revealed

ringing out
in the silent corners of my soul:
a joyous cacophony of love
and pain.

mothers call
and fathers cry….
over a future turned inside out.

looking back
across the storm


we must not fear.


we must not fail.

we sail upon
their very tears…


we must not fail


we must not fear

let us,
together,
take our struggles
and our hate,
and our fear….

let us bond these pieces
with love’s joy.


let us make our fathers
and
our mothers proud,


let us, together,
put them to rest
in peace

we must not fear.

Rise

fresh
and new.

tested and
true.

the future
awaits no one,
but you.

time fails
the uninitiated,
drowning young souls
in longing,
and want.

where are your
shiny scars
bearing lessons
ne’er forgotten?

where are your hopes,
but swinging strangely
like black fruit
in the empty breeze?

come lay your head
on this bed of ash feathers
and arise again;

remember
fearlessness.

come give yourself
unto your birthright,
come dance within my flame.

never quench
your rightful desire,
come learn your true name.

come,
and rise
again.

Me

don’t run.
or you will always be
alone.

hide,
for a time,
and you will mourn,
alone.

waiting
with open
hand.

please come back
to us:

me&you…
you&me…

WE.

let us reunite
and be whole
like before.

WE
are the love
for which
you hunt.

WE
are
all we will ever need.

so,
come back, my
beloved,
let us feel
this silent stillness
together.

Fog II

safe in
a soft
empty,

silver’s magic
flows
between
this step
and
the
next.

there
is nothing

but this,
and
paradise.

high above,
She sweetly
bores through,
with mystique
&
grace-
She is
lovely,
she is,
more.

She sees
the serene infinite
is
nothing more
than a pit for the blind.

a void for the dammed.

She smiles down,
mockingly
cold, and wicked.
jealous
of your fire.
