Starshine Tonight

Starshine tonight
Closing my eyes
Opening my heart
Stop thinking; never surmise
I’m not going to succumb
I’d much rather be free
All form; transfixed into labels
I stubbornly reject. My soul is me

Strapped Into A Mourning Gown

Strapped into a mourning gown
That might survive our winter garden
Rebasing all these dreams
This predicament has begun to harden;
I beg your pardon
Slowly peeling off your layers
Caught us in a lightning storm
Feeling excited electricity
Between our adrenalized forms
Standing naked before the darkness
Illuminated only by midnight flashes
Perfection within a moment
Emotion dripping from your eyelashes

Have We Forgotten

Have we forgotten that we’re a rebellious people
Cashing checks under a drifter’s pseudonym
But together, we race across time, surviving
Embracing the unity of singing outlawed hymns
Lately, crying about a falsified history
Disillusioned, disappointed, disingenuous
I have no faith in movements and isms
They’re tinged with the superfluous
I believe in honor & service to the people
Treat each as an individual, never a group
Freedom & liberty distilled down to purest forms
Or else, we’ll see this hatred played out in an endless loop

Aroused By The Typewriter’s Bell

Aroused by the typewriter’s bell

I’m salivating like Pavlov’s dog

Imagining caffeinated mornings

Walking the Sunset within the fog

Though those were forgotten emotions

I’m not able to repeat that form

So I do my best to feel the original

Sometimes I’m hard to notice before the storm

All The Dominoes Lined Up Perfectly

All the dominoes lined up perfectly
Careful to make sure nothing descends
Foundations & structures relatively stable
We try to mask our fear, but it’s all pretend
The show must go on, in spite of internal toils
Lace up those boots & head out into the storm
Cinch the coat tightly around your broken heart
Prepare your soul, despair comes in many forms

Do Not Be Afraid Of Your Strength

Do not be afraid of your strength
Learn to love yourself & all forms
There’s peace within the text
Embrace ideas as they swarm
Take a walk into the fields
Go further, down where the fairies reside
Take time to learn the dwarves’ names
When you return you’ll be bonafide
Write what your soul has digested
Tell us the stories living up within
Once you become young
That’s the exact moment life will begin

Keep Your Labels

Keep your labels

Your hypocrisy becoming the norm

Judging other’s words

You despise my nonscholarly form

I refuse to play your games

Using intelligence to mask fear

Maybe not so intellectual

I laugh at your pretentious sneer

Hitting Rock Bottom With An Articulate Woman

  

Hitting rock bottom with an articulate woman

Now I can see love was not in her view

Misguided choices of delicate wonder

Bringing to the forefront curiosity anew

You may call it a travesty or much worse

I am merely a person of no consequence

Our downfalls reside within our own skin

Hate me, but no blame for her moral sense

I never knew her purpose & never asked

Burned once for being too close to her wiles

Recoiled with her artifice grasped at last

Any form of compassion was not her style

 

I’m A Slut To My Form

  

I’m a slut to my form
I don’t think there’s a discussion
To be had about that
I’m giving in to my own repercussions
I know what I’m doing
I’ve been yelling this for years
Don’t care for your rules or charges
Simply running headlong into our fears
