Chains

You cannot fail;
Do as you can
How you should
When you must

You must not fail;
Do as you should
How you must
When you can

You will not fail;
Do as you must
How you can
When you should

Breathe and live!
When you should
If you can
As you must

Worthy Probability

To understand your destiny,
Move beyond all insanity
For a single moment of clarity.

To realize and accept
Within each man
Lives a multiplicity,
A duplicity,
A worthy probability
For an art to live on
Infinity.

Tender Heart

The disturbed remains
Of a tender heart,
Pieces stolen,
Plucked,
Taken,
Left to rot away,
In a soft moan
Locked in a warm memory.

Our memory.

The disturbed remains
Of our tender heart
Stolen
Away
From the light
In my eyes,
From the beat
In our heart,
From the warmth
Of your kiss,

There I gaze upon
The disturbed remains
Of our once tender heart
There I blow away
The ashes of a fickle past.

And turn my back

To take
A walk
Away

Into the future.

Of All Else

19.Feb.18

Strangling the ghosts
Of my losses,
And all the I’s
I’ve ended

Not to feel the pain
Of an absent love
Of the absent past
The distilled unfortunate
Lack thereof
Windows out
to the world
Where

The eternal stillness
Cracks.

Born of the fleeting
Moon’s light,
I feel the cold
Of the heart
Buried under
Howling frost winds

Where
The howling white sings
An elegy of ghosts
Of what once was,
Of what once could be
Never to be
Completely
Me.

Willscape

The gravestone of our will
Cold, bleak, desolate,
Ever-resilient
Ever-present
Constantly permanent
Stands in stone

Against the wind.

Etched on it,
Timeless was and shall be
The crown jewel
Of our Mighty Hill
Beyond and through
There is no Right Path

But just the Only Path

Paved with the stones of
Today’s failures,
Littered with the corpses of
Yesterday’s dreams
The remnants of yesterwill,
Constant and permanent

Standing

Against the wind.

Secret in the Stars

α

Stand next to one another
Deep in the night sky
Twinkling through the everblack
Look, deep, watch, bright.
Never to touch truly
Never to be far kindly
Never to forget
What you cannot have
Ever to admire
What you cannot have
Never fear
What you may at once have

Deep in the night sky
Look, longing, watch, bright
What you cannot have
Only ever to admire
What you cannot have.

Till she looks back
Across the night sky
Never to forget
And realize
What we could have,
Ever to admire.

All we were to have
All we are to have
All we were meant to have.

Till she looks back
Across the night sky
Look,longing,watch,bright
And realize
What we could ever have
Standing next to one another.

β

Thunder stroke across the horizon
Within an arm’s reach
Within two hearts beating across
Thunder strikes across the soul

As I’ll always remember you
As you danced giddy by the sea
Engulfed by the setting sun
Shining ever bright
My beautiful, smiling fairy
By the blue sea

How I long for thee…

γ

We cage the beasts within
Mine and yours
We cage them within
But they breed
Their get stronger
Than the bars our minds
Put across our hearts
What our souls and selflessness
Can build

Fallible

Against what’s within
Now that we’ve held hands
Held our hearts, minds, and soul
Have shared all within
Mine and yours.

δ

When the quietest scream
Erupts in the loudest one
There will be no one left
To understand what was
Once a dream.

Ω

Walk slowly, slowly,
Into a thin darkness.
Through it, with me,
Get lost
Into a thicker darkness.

Lose yourself,
With me,
To a secret,
Away,
To find the echoes of laughter
Believing that we are ever
Safe,
In our secret away.

The echo of our words
Safe in our love
Because we laugh – because we love

In a thick darkness, in our secret
Away.

Golden Boy

The Buddha spoke to me in my dream,

He advised of stony patience,
Kin to a stream that runs for millennia
Through monolithic mountains.

He spoke of personal fury,
Rage to destroy one’s enemy
How deserving they may be,
Forgiveness the eternal remedy,
As virtue it may be
To vindicate an enemy.

He told me of a kinder soul,
The divine spark in all of men,
A heart of good will for all of men;
A goal holy, a road thorny,
A path fraud with sacrifices many.

I asked him, when shall I
Dream of you again?

A golden smile upon his lips replied,
It is I who dream of you,
Among the clouds, under the sun,
Above the earth, under the moon.

Pages of Madness

I become the pages
On a Book of Madness.

Every uttered word
On a Scene of Loneliness;

Its discord,
Its permanence,
Its quiet darkness

Echo on every breath,
A scene of infinite Madness.

I become the pages
On a scene of RAGE;

Its penult,
Its fire,
Its engulfing mire

Echo on every breath,
A scene of infinite Madness.

The Bright

You are the Lord of the Other Side
Of the ever-burning fire
Of the imprisoned inspiration
Of the bloody rebellion
Of the eternal damnation.

You will be loved
You will be adored
You will be praised
You will be bright
You will be hated
You will be hunted
You will be damned.

You will be worshipped.
You will become the Dark.

You are the Keeper of Secrets
The honesty in every lie
The lie in every good deed.

You are the Mirror of Truth
The love of every lust
The lust in every love.

You are the Master of the Winter Tide
Of the ever-burying snow
Of the infinite Prison
Of every committed crime
Of every suicide

You will be needed
You will be envied
You will be called
You will be bright
You will be accused
You will be searched
You will be reviled.

You will become lost.

You will be worshipped.
You will become the Dark.

God Rays

There is a tomorrow.

It’s dark no longer.
There are clouds,
There is wind.
No longer a storm,
Not yet the sun.

It’s cold no longer.
There is dew,
There is wind.
No longer a blizzard,
Not yet the sun.

It’s broken no longer.
There is a heart,
There is a kiss.
No longer a tornado,
Not yet the sun.

It’s lonely no longer.
There is a universe,
There is a deep call.
No longer a sadness,
Not yet the sun.

Dreams told me it will come.

The clouds have parted.
There are walls torn down,
There are scattered ruins.

No longer a few naked trees,
Not only our city,
Our country,
Our island,
My ocean,
My land,
My kingdom warm.

My heart no longer forlorn.

Above us,
Our setting moon,
Slowly, beautifully,
Ahead of us,
Our rising sun,
Dawning with golden rays,
Ready to pierce the horizon.

Wash our kingdom,
Our country, our island,
You – my ocean, my land,
My kingdom, my art,
My sun, my kind heart,
Wash my kingdom in warmth,
Drown my ocean in our heart.

There is more than a tomorrow.

Dance with me.
You and I,
We will rule
Together.
