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.

What was lost

heart
awakens before the dawn;
hands
reach across
hungrily,
for you.

there,
amongst the midnight
wanderings of the soul,
we found
each other.
we found
peace.
we laughed.
we played.
we
were
wicked
in our childish joy.

but now
as night’s slip
pulls away,
you have gone.

are you out there?
are you seeking me out?
does your soul remember
our dance
under the forests of our imaginings?

dreaming perfection:
two souls fast at love.

but.
as a dull orange
burning lustfully
lights the east,
purpose
sweeps away
the ashes of my mind.

i see my sweet
and
beautiful
phantasmal partner right here,
with me…
i feel my lover
dancing with delight,
right here
within me.

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.
