Strutter Step

juking & jiving
your damn way through, but
stickin'
to the script like
you were bred to do.



life plays you tight-
this ain't no zone D.
but there are so many ways
for us to get free.


no matter
how
you twist,
turn,
or fade away,
home waits for you,
right now,
right here.


so,
walk your way
and remember
to play YOUR game,
and we promise
to welcome
you home
once again.

Take Me Home Again

albion mist
clouds my heart.
I cannot hear the drums.


the might of my fathers washed
away in the myth of history.
I cannot feel the drums.


empty children, wandering
without soul, eternally seeking,
try to guide me through their hell.


they have never heard
the sound of the drums.


they cannot know
the sound of the drums.


the sound of the drums
that will take me home.


the sound of the drums
that can take us home.

slumber

deep
dark
magic
flows
swift
between
words unspoken.


words
whispered
in
dreams of remembering.


words
sung
to
rhythms long lost.


words
buried
beneath
stone and river.



words claimed
by
souls damned.




the night screams
joy, as we awaken
to her call,
so
come and
dance
with us,
naked
& free.




come my children,
let us burn eternal,
fuck the world and
set our magic free

changing lanes

long have i waited
for opportunity's spiked embrace,
as portents of struggle
flooded my soul
with a patient kind of love.


and fear arrived to nest in my heart.

fear stilled these capable limbs.

fear stilled all hope,
leaving
me
in a broken moment,
until fear stilled my fear.


and so I am here
now, fearless
& alone,
wrapped in this cloak of destiny.

cracks

there are cracks
in the cradle of your soul,
but you are not broken.



though
some rivulets of
feeling spill
over,
you remain
whole.



so come,
with all your scarred perfection,
and let us explore
a fractured past,
tell tales,
and share a kiss that will last
for eternity.


let us polish these cracks
with love's wild caress.
