Call of the Mystic

Live your life in such a way that it calls not for an interpretation of good or bad but encourages all those around you to question everything they thought definite. Transcendence is born in this place.

Hard Knocks

No it isn’t easy When exhaustion sets in it becomes a mental war between your will to keep fighting and that ever present voice telling you to give up Black, blue, sweat, tears, cracked and frayed Your outer appearance may look pristine to the world Your insides raw from the weight of all that has…

Hollow Bones

My eyes they sting The fan it spins The cat is in the yard, The water’s hot The room is not And I find breathing hard, My lip is split My jaw is stiff It’s grip is on my brain, The sirens ring The men walk in My soul begins to drain, The scans are…

The Deep Dark Blues

There are snorkellers, deep sea divers and creatures of the deep. You are somewhere between the first two and while I thought myself a diver once I’ve come to realize I pertain to the very last category. It can be dark down there, the pressure tight enough to crush a brain to crimson ink. And while…

Earth

Roots buried deep in the ground Take hold my ankles beneath moon round Make me one with your breath Keep me safe in life and death Arms outstretched to rays of light Branches reaching day and night Grounded feet buried deep Fruits from harvest you will reap Body, mind and spirit grow As above, so…

The Evolving Soul

Ever-changing in its length and in its gate Stasis, an inconceivable notion to its state A pinpoint, silently it turns, spiraling awake At times exulting in its glory At times dwindling away Traveling life-spark, wisdom gathered as it breathes in and out, No stagnancy in its metamorphoses as life takes chunks of it out, Love…

Whisper in the Wind

To all the brave souls lost to cancer. And the legacy of strength they have left behind . Pasty-lipped dried eyed dreamer hair fallen from your crest, Let me listen to your story as I listen to them best, As a selfish soul imprisoned in illusion not your own, Time and issue miles behind you only…

Awakening of the Warrior

Awakening of the Warrior You hold the lock and key buried within the rising and falling of that borrowed chestEncased in the prison of your ribs she screamsSuffocating, reaching out blindly, seeking the surface Freedom comes at a price high enough to keep the most Brilliant soul chained beneath the thickest of masks Who knew…
