say what you mean

Posted: August 15, 2017 in Uncategorized

nothing warms the heart like a good idea

when i forget to try to make you feel good

hope think brilliance makes amends

the clever observations i offer up

amusing but chilly and far from the truth

          just look me in the eye and say what you mean

God has a lot to answer for

Posted: August 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

God has a lot to answer for though I see his point
I empathize am overcome become indifferent
Does that make me Lucifer I see his point too
Who am I to question let alone judge

Prideful fallen we are all Lucifer’s descendants
We dwell willingly in a house of his making
Together we turned paradise into a prison
We are all prisoners and we are all warders

We did not build this place but we must inhabit it
The freedom we seek is the freedom we deny ourselves
We remember nothing of our personal history before birth
And death is the end of the story we’ve told ourselves

Sexy Sunday

Posted: August 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

Sexy Sunday laid out in window pane sun
languor morphing into lust
and you’re lost in another sexy Sunday.

The lord’s day gone from mild to wild
on our knees without a prayer
the shame the blame have no place here.

We have dedicated ourselves to the truth that sustains us
our creed just another means to broken promises
we vow to do no harm.

Ask humbly not to be crucified
freed from religion we take our chances
make the day a sacrament of our yearning.

Take Heart

Posted: August 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

The strength we exert to hold things together
the courage we bring to resolve these conflicts

it is because it is.

We take heart it’s how we were designed to react
complete surrender the only way to bliss

no comfort taken without kindness.

We recognize this place though we may never have been here before
this is what we are

it’s going to change it’s going to be okay.

at the end of my personal history
the future is foretold by the past
nothing new under my sun
no radical departures loom
no sudden exits appear
all hemispheres have been mapped
the longitudes and latitudes clearly delineated

the highs and the lows have been charted
let the record show i was here and there
i passed through places far and near
the journey took time and i took my share
what remains remains to be seen
though clouded with cataracts my eyes are open
my vision dimmed only by what i have seen before

The Emergence of Giants

Posted: August 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

Some seek to show you the light
I need to remind you of the darkness
Bask under the sun all day if you like
It will set and night will come
Neither as malevolence nor magic
It comes because the massive bodies we inhabit
Rearrange themselves according to nature
Indifferent to the shadows they cast

Our eyes have adjusted to these conditions
Created without thought or purpose
The unintended consequences are tragic and beneficial
It all depends on your timing and precise location
If you are here you are vulnerable
If you are there you are affected
We are immersed and therefore involved
We are powerless to resist the emergence of giants

The Opposite of Give and Take

Posted: August 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

The best thing I’ve done for you is to stop caring
it seems it’s what you wanted
I got it from every quarter section by section
I sectioned myself off
it made a beautiful pattern of random symmetry
based upon the opposite of give and take.

Withhold and seek I deny you nothing.

The gifts I willingly offered up were too much of me
I understand the return policy I really do
everything unwrapped nothing unraveled
there’s plenty more in store
I can take it back or leave it with you
plus no resentment too.
