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.

These Tears

these tears
you feel
streaming down my face
were baptized in anger.

stolen
raped
lynched
sexualized
ridiculed
demonized
feared
murdered
shamed

and that was just yesterday.

i don’t know
if i can forgive you.

i don’t know
if i want to.

ancestral sins haunt us all
but your
continued wanton lust to
dominate
weakens you and
hath awaken the fury,
and the fire
within
me.

within us.

and all of hell’s glory
shall rain
upon your misguided,
twisted, and
vacated souls.

still then
i don’t know
if i will forgive you.

i don’t know
if i will want to.

these tears are not to soften my fear-
these tears will wash away the blood to come.

so let us tumble together
along this
slippery
descent
into Oblivion.

prayer

waiting
for you was never a chore
because you
were always there
next to me.

loving you
burns
like
24 year old scotch
whiskey
slipping under my soul.

life
is filled
with wonder and
peace when
my gaze meets
yours.

you
and
I
shall travel forever

dancing
together on
infinite winds

across the
wings of
memory.

yes,
we will know
eternity.

❤️❤️❤️
