I See You Baby

Ma’s cradle

Always in the shade

No needle

Neither blade

Only mama’s white Sunshade

Baby everglade

 

Baby’s lost

Running in graveyard

Mistaken

Green backyard

Hearts and guts are beating low

Lost in dusty flow

 

Inky glow

Uncovering deep

Maidens sleep

Do they weep

All you see is frightening teeth

Perhaps none beneath

 

Ma’s paddle

Tells you what to trade

The weasel

Says the grade

All love by which you’ll abade

Losing the parade

 

The soul’s cost

Trimming in billard

Forsaken

Green orchard

Stunts and brunts are beating brow

Death is costly blow

 

Pinch me slow

Awakening sleep

Husbands creep

From wells steep

Now they see the edge of heath

My life now bequeath

 

He crawled out

In tatters from thorns

His head bled

Bloody red

Mama Dove shows blue in me

I See You Baby

Walking on eggshells

Toiling through the days planted

A slippery path

 

A parade for none

Balance maintained by sheer will

For pain to withstand

 

Life is always such

That calm relays agony

Rainbow to be felt

 

Kick off calm and dance

Raging with the elements

That battle within

Spending you in throes

Fight and you are overcome

You fight only you

 

Blinded spectacle

Lending itself to ashes

The blind will behold

 

Practising still life

A lifetime to reach the point

Of abandonment

 

Look into my eyes

I will raise you now my peace

For shelter you bring
