upon (sound) healing

become the dust
flow through my pores
soak into my blood
alter my dna

my eyes materialize
within your darkest night
paired sunrises or sunsets
only you know which
in each passing moment

touch what you will
you will touch me
we two mingling in breezes
cascading before the sun
in our rainbow
only others can see
only we can feel…

Outlaw Truth

words that cut
sharpened by truth
turn no deaf ears
in this morning’s light

warned by The Universe
to give us this day
its Daily Bread
i shall go armed
only with insight
carried on wings
of outlaw truth

singleness of purpose
battling injustices
profound and profane
under building storm clouds

Pencil in a Spa

planes that fly away from me
as the sun leaves my sky
dont know what i want to be
when i finally grow up

who was it who made me
one day at a time
back in the good old days
before my nights had eyes

im not sure i know me
as well as i know you
theres too much
i dont want to see
how my mirrors need cleaning

someday i’ll be all gone
vacant from my body envelope
just floating on the ether
waiting for time to end

’til then i’ll just float
like a pencil in a spa
waiting for my next words

B4Life

when U know pain in your gut lost in your own fog
B4U clearly seeing
it in your lover’s eyes

when U see bullets flying
and hear victims’ screams
B4U hearing the newcast

when anxiety grips U
B4U hearing a child sobs

when U feel all aroused
B4U hearing the lover’s orgasm

B4Life gets U all riled
as everything flows
in out through U
in out through mind’s I

B4I react
instead gotta chill
gotta know what’s mine
gotta know what’s yours

can’t own shit
(no matter how good/bad)
if it’s your B4Life
but I add blessings
2 the lightstream
flowing ‘tween us
in our here and now

a big smile
a warm handshake
rapidly becoming an embrace
decorated by insight-laden words sprinkled with the latest catch phrases
i know i am loved

in the name of healing,
of growth and the holy spiritual journey
He sprinkles reassurance and warmth

2bLedSoCool

He feels like He’s giving so
He’s actually taking self-confidence and my soul

a self-proclaimed leader
he is a destroyer
consuming all he touches
behind his deceptive smile
while masterfully playing games with followers’ vulnerabilities

liar, philanderer, manipulator, ego-maniac
see the Naked Narcissist
dancing on the broken souls
who once believed in him

watch him now gorging on new converts, their blood dripping from his broken teeth and broad smile
his feeding frenzy ballooning his ego, his waist and his wallet

see his mouth full of feces
his soul crawling with maggots

i do not need his love
his wisdom or the hell
he brings in the name of
his festering wounds

i walk away from his stench,
his empty words and pathetic facade
tired of his hoaxes

2bRnot2b(led)
choose wisely
know ur leaders
know ur deceivers
know urself
or die1000deaths
