LP No. 05_2021_One

without pause or
doubt,
or fear of what may,
i pull
inexorably
to you.

the threads
of my life,
between nimble fingers,
tangled and knotted-
but we,
so far from besotted.

no way but up,
to fall into open arms.

no way but down,
to where we belong.

no way,
but the way
we forgot.

one path
to
a Love
destined.

one fall
to an
Oblivion
guaranteed.

one soul,
afire with hope &
purpose &
love.

LP No. 01_2021_ Hidden

Shrouded


in the brilliant
preponderance
of the coming storm,



and
ensconced
in swirling mists
of ether,
magics,
and assorted devilry,

Destiny calls out,
desperately


yearning for your touch.





Do you
hear her?





Do you want to?




or would you rather slip
back
into sweet angelic
dreams of beauty
and love?






hidden away in vaults of eternal treasure,
She waits for your embrace.





Will you answer?
or simply wither away?

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.

dandelion supernova

wandering alone through
these memories,
i see that you were never
here.

and in
truth,
i really don’t care.

a shallow moon rises,
flooding this soul
with new magic.

faith rumbles
deep within,
lost
between twin
echoes of doubt
&
age.
lost,
but not forgotten.

a deep sun rises,
scorching this skin
with an ancient wisdom.

I am ready now.

ready
to surrender,
and
drown my pain
in
Destiny’s sweet embrace
and
burst forth triumphant,
ascendant,
and
decadent.

no.

you ain’t ready for this.

Fire & Silver

in the corners
of this shadowy
union,
souls dream and
linger,
seeking the old magic.

inside this simple alchemy burns
a truth
more profound than
life,
and love.

looking
into this mystery,
secrets deep within are
unlocked and
released,
and the demons come out
to play.

and we dance together,
we happy little devils,
we dance
beneath the bonfire
of my soul.

soul sistah, i wanna get wi’chya

soul sistah,
really,
i wanna get wi’chya.

and live a life existential and
sacred, and yet
scandalously ir-reverential.

let’s be grounded
in the metaphysical,
connected to our roots
with souls flung free.

let us make love
in the shadow of our Story,
and bask
in the afterglow of our glory.

let’s make babies,
young,
gifted,
and black.
let them know real love
by how my fingers caress your back.

I mean to getchya woman,
give you all of me
and make you mine.
but first
let us stroll a bit
and let our tale unwind.

Two


Love
leads
us to truth.

we climb
through the rubble
and debris and lies
of a past less ordinary
to claim our
History.


Love
cuts
through our soul


I hear you
when you can’t speak.
I feel you
when you cry out
in joy
or in pain,
I got you.

Love
bonds
us to love.

let us cry out
together.
let them know
our song.
let them know
that we are more.

my love
is
your love

I got you,
and you have me:
all
of
me.
what else do we need?

together
we are
one.


epilogue:
my heart
to your heart.
your beautiful soft lips
to mine.
tell me no lies
and I will
sing
to you
of love.
