The Darkness

Standard

The Darkness grips me with its’ loving smile,
Whispering, you think you can ignore me? I am the blessed one you know,
Are you sure it’s not me you have sought for all along?
Down all the half-lit alleyways of your fractured mind,
Is my way not the true road less travelled?
Not your fashioned life-story, not your unfolding mythical self of selective life-moments;
Broken!

The Darkness holds me with its’ numbing embrace,
Whispering, know me and be free forever. I am the keeper of all Knowledge you know,
Worship with me and all you have dreamed of will be yours,
I ripple through your half-remembered dreams in day-breaks’ waking moments,
Are your delicious dreams not your true revelation?
Your denied life-story, played out in full view of your unconstrained eyes;
Damaged!

The Darkness shadows me, is me,
Whispering, for all time, for all time, for all time call me friend. I am the Dark side of your Light, the Tree of Death and Life,
Sing songs of praise with me and resonate within this divine truth,
I am the Guide on your darkest of soul-journeys,
Exploring the softest scents of death too soon, the fondest joys of inflicted torture, the ear-cracking cries of ruptured psyches,
Aghast at your unknown life, now revealed, joyously celebrated;
Whole!

A Poem: Spiritual Paradox

Standard

There is something hidden;
That is in plain sight.

There is something which moves;
Yet it is always still.

There are many mysterious teachings;
Who’s literal meaning is the truth.

There is someone who is sleeping;
Who is always awake.

There are many who are searching;
For who they already are.

The Words Come Softly

Standard

The words come softly;
At the break of the day.

The words come softly;
And speak of fears they want to slay.

The words come softly;
Union is forever they say.

The words come softly;
Who’s words, who’s thoughts come today?

The words come softly;
When Spirit comes our way.

The words come softly;
For those who chose to listen.

Big Blue Yonder

Standard

You hope to meet me in a distant heavenly tomorrow;
A kettle starts to boil.

You catch a glimpse of my face in the moon and stars;
Letters drop through the door.

You call for me in your darkest, lonliest hours;
My shirt it smells fresh, newly washed.

You find brief respite in the words of great teachers;
A cough reminds me to buy some more vitamins.

Your holy mantras sing of love and longing;
The noise of children playing disturbs my restless thoughts.

You search in vain for me on the mountain tops;
When all the time I am here, here in the your valleys and your homes.

Eternally present in your heart of hearts.
