Self-Knowledge Is Sublime

poetry reveals the truths
the center of your being
the illumination and the dark
duality no one is seeing

oft-times you’ll discover
as you read your words
an aspect of yourself
you never ever heard

through your poetry
you gain the freedom inclined
whether honest or deceitful
desirable or shunned
self-knowledge is sublime

Aged Eyes

as an ancient book
leather-bound
embellished in gold
aged eyes chronicle
truth and wisdom
do you peer deeply
can you read their story

Quixotic Star

I delight in watching you when you’re unaware
it’s my good fortune to love a man like you
what magnanimous deed could I have done
to garner the unconditional love you return

surreptitious moments are my guarded jewels
when admiringly my eyes trace you unawares
when you are the perfect, imperfect man I love
each nuance revealing the unfeigned you

I’m creating memories to last my lifetime
my private motion pictures to view at whim  
falling in love repeatedly with the quixotic star
my romance hero..love of my life

Damnation

visited the old house today
long neglected but won’t go away
once lovely rose garden hiding crimes
a haunting forest of tangled thorns abandoned
in all this time the ivy vine entwines
like a new owner on a rampage
trying to conceal the ghostly screams

the empty walls have no muffling
still whispers mock with dirty secrets
reminders of scars clawed upon my soul
so many skeletons these walls hold
closets filled with evil laughter
we tried so hard to hide
the terror buried deep inside

till these walls have died
every brick and mortar crumbled
secrets rise at midnight
with a mighty rumble
to dance an evil celebration
of the soul’s damnation

Celestial Promise

 

A faint kiss in the mist
placed upon his forehead
barely discernible flutter
a windy whisper
arousing wonderment
the fantasm maiden
warming his body
with transmitted light
gone in the mist
from whence she came
exotic secrets await
my cherished one
a celestial promise
an ethereal departure

The Beast Stalks

Afflicted is to feast on those who peddle flesh
Evil is to feast on the unsuspecting innocent    

Afflicted is to cry out with a plea for help
Evil is to prey without mercy upon the helpless

Afflicted is to let what is truth be unveiled
Evil is to conceal rather than reveal

There exists man afflicted with disease
There remains a beast who devours whom he pleases

Would one desire the beast to befriend
Demise to the heart the soul’s fateful end

Trophies of the fallen collection of hearts
Fatal wounds by the beast with poisoned darts

Cocoon

 

Where the felicitous moments
feminine foretokens
that created her a woman
hidden in pain, walled up
mortar and brick enclosure
chip chip crumble the wall
crack the exterior
watch as it falls

Is there emptiness
can passion be revived
she touches herself
where men use to enter
tears, indicative of life
darkness in her mind
hiding terrors endured
unspoiled memories obscured

Door of apprehension
long locked with scars
lover’s touch, is it the key
who will search, set her free
will she awaken her icy sleep
butterfly in glorious flight
or remain a stifled caterpillar
crushed cocoon in dark of night

Veiled in Black

I veil my heart

wrapped in black

so as not to reveal

my transparent love

that keeps getting larger
