Hunger bites

Morsels of the mind

She offered

Fruit of old

To compensate the feeling

Of bowels reeling

 

Candy cake

Sugar on the top

Sickening

Slice of lies

Their ancestry picked from flies

Uneven outposts

 

We held hosts

In kingdom’s shiver

In quiver

Shake my faith

I will show you wizened strait

Measure of my wait

Battles fought

Against the dark self

Writhing lies

Evidence

Body of the consumption

Dancing to the Truth

 

Call me Ruth

Never mind the name

Build me frame

Like a game

I will play with you as tame

Before you’re in flame

 

Combustion

The wood that implodes

Building spark

From the lark

Voices beckon to fire’s ark

Come out of the dark

Six plunder

Jewels of the crown

Nightingale

Turned to clown

Move sixty-six feet under

Forts that knock sundown

 

Legend thief

Moving up the wall

I inhale

In deep call

The dying fish of the reef

Survival cost all

 

Melt me skies

Now EMP squared

I’ll tell tale

How we fared

Through the meltdown of the lies

As Brotherhood stared

Words spilling

Through intent killing

She takes me

Cherished tree

Withered hearts that beg in plea

Washed in random sea

 

They walk out

Shadows tall and stout

Souls that winced

Intent rinsed

Rising red from meat that’s minced

Mind no heart convinced

 

Moons follow

Heartbeats to hollow

Willow’s seed

Murky weed

Choices made on brink of speed

We retain soft reed

 

Save me sight

Hush the renewed plight

Blinding stare

Whining glare

Flight in seconds we were there

Living in nightmare

 

Grinding blast

Dissolution fast

Wink you’re gone

On the lawn

Brittle pieces once upon

A lifeline now torn

 

They crawl slow

Shadows through the flow

Mend my eyes

Feed me lies

I once looked upon the skies

What I see now dies

Protectors of Truth

They carry

Burden of Bounty

Inside skull

Brittle dull

Their minds surpassing beauty

Their hearts shades of Grey

 

They marry

Interweaving keen

Faith and lies

Dark and skies

In grey they lost purple sheen

Their worlds turned dismay

 

They tarry

Relentless abode

Of the mind

Shaped unkind

With barking wolves once they rode

Deeper into fray

 

The lesson

Learnt in hindsight pale

Foresight cost

Timber lost

Wooden plates for banquet stale

From mind games they play

 

Heart dragon

Flame for braver kind

Breathing low

Lights that glow

Stream of atoms now remind

Of forgotten day

 

We summon

Protectors of Truth

Speaking loud

Within cloud

Peter Mary Anne and Ruth

Tribes of soul relay

Come to me with your weathered rhyme

We will draw on waters of skies

Washing away darkness of lies

The cleaning rosemary and thyme

 

Amplified portals in Heart chime

Gathered by call tribe liquefies

Soul in one to higher realms flies

Where we dreamt once upon a Time

 

Count the prayers of peace in me

The wells rungs of ladders gathered

My backbone beads of rosary

 

Cells bearers of infinity

The children of Earth I mothered

Raised to heavens they set me free

The Love in the stars

Wave spotting

Thrill of the surfer

Goal in height

Darkened might

Entering the bridge of crest

Speeding through unrest

 

When storm breaks

The ranks diminish

Hands astray

Feet blemish

Every excuse minds cherish

Story in banner

 

Ills manner

The natural spurts

When polish

Will vanish

In the face of tidal wave

Only for the brave

 

Showering

Words means with no end

Cowering

Squat the knave

Monologues a helpless scene

Broken repertoire

 

Untruth mean

Average inclined

Towards lies

Bridled skies

Light but nest of fireflies

Beast’s underbelly

 

Heartfelt trust

We do what we must

When I fall

I recall

Your arms surround me with all

The Love in the stars

The wind blows

On sands of the mind

Stripping bare

Ideas

Like wrecked car that truck tows

A recovery

 

Winding path

It leads to the source

Of all thought

Inner frame

Coil to all what we forgot

The discovery

 

Do you hear

The voices beckon

Other side

Welcomes air

As the wind hollows the wall

In between phases

 

In dreamtime

We travel places

Where we see

All that is

Today in tomorrow’s past

The events that last

 

Beyond Light

There is a darkness

That unfolds

Million leaves

The space tapestry it weaves

Fractal threads twirling

 

Splitting space

The guiding ridges

They join weave

The cuttings

Loosened ends that minds deceive

On isolation

 

In the Heart

Shudder throbbing walls

Inner blue

Outer red

In between a thin parchment

Of opposed syntax

 

The truth lies

In the middle way

Where souls twirl

To fading moon

Where the sage and the fool swoon

In ecstatic trance

 

Whirl with me

Through the bleak sandstorms

We will reach

Beyond norms

Where everything is nothing

Unwinding all Time

De silence gouffre béant faire de moi endormie / From silence gaping chasm to make me a sleeper

De silence gouffre béant faire de moi endormie

Les paroles vainement dites sont les sceaux des tombeaux

Où lys et pissenlits reposent doux face à face

Gloires et splendeur dédites orientent mes oripeaux

Cœur ouvert de délits ne connaît point disgrâce

 

Contez-moi les mérites d’arborer les lambeaux

Je vous froisserai les plis de vérités d’une race

Servitudes émérites les portant en flambeaux

Pour des ventres bien remplis sous des cœurs de rapace

 

Je n’ai eu de seigneur que la douceur des prés

Bleu de vastes océans abritant mes douces nuits

Je nais, hue ! on saigne heure en sang rouge des cyprès

 

Voyez en mon céans les battements de bleue vie

Il bat en mon cœur fleur violette qu’on tait exprès

De silence gouffre béant faire de moi endormie

The words said in vain are the seals of tombs

Where lilies and dandelions lay soft face to face

Glory and splendor denied orient my tatters

Open heart of offenses knows never the disgrace

 

Tell me about the merits of brandishing shreds

I will crease for you the folds of the truths of a race

Distinguished slaveries, carrying them like torches

For well-filled bellies under raptor hearts

 

I had no other master than the gentle meadows

Blue of vast oceans sheltering my sweet nights

I am born, boo! They bleed the hour in red blood of cypresses

 

Look hither within me the beating of blue life

In my heart beats a flower violet that they silence willfully

From silence gaping chasm to make me a sleeper

She sits calm

Pondering life’s ways

As Time flows

Like rivers

Our souls go through highs and lows

In dancing waters

 

Sometimes fast

Sometimes inching ants

We let rants

Broken past

Separate our hearts that beat

Quick admit defeat

 

The knowledge

It comes slow steady

Into minds

Waking souls

Of the chosen few ready

To live on the edge

He lived thrill

His words harsh mouth shrill

Skull beating

The heart numb

Errors of past repeating

His memory played dumb

 

We light skies

With crazed fireflies’ glow

Or dead stars

Throbbing lies

Bursting out of mind’s control

To clean mess takes hours

 

The clock sighs

As it counts seconds

Turning slow

Centuries

Two were to bear it the flame

Now one scurries lame

Phantom twin

Runs lone for the win

Ghostly foot

Joins the race

In pairs we face less disgrace

Battered time relay

 

He turns meek

His lessons now learnt

The soul burnt

Forged by change

He offers strong other cheek

Forgiveness not strange

 

Each other’s

Tutor and pupil

Lessons pour

The heart’s fill

Winning humility’s sight

Bringer of the light
