More Than
A Fever

More than a fever
Darkness in our dust
More than a reason
A season of lust
But oh more than lust
Like a gust of wind
Taken down the river
The everlasting stream
The pull of desire
We find we are more on fire than ever before
Under the water and breathing
Alive and new and frisky
Worth all the risk
To be different
To be courageous in the current
To be undefined
To take the reigns of your wild ride
To fight for your life
Nothing is as important
Yet nothing’s a big deal
It’s all so enchanting
Full of expanding wonder
It’s all so enlightening
I want to never be done
I want to never forget it
Just live it

Unafraid To Be
Fully Who We Are

We were hiding
And that wasn’t fair
The only way to know each other
Is to share our true visions
Unafraid to be fully who we are

The Sticky
Goo Virus

I let the bubble burst
Covering me like a suffocating plastic wrapper
It was filling with ideas
And obligations
Regrets and delusions
Illusions created from fear
This is not who I wanted to become
I have only myself to blame
But I see through the faded distractions
The melted words that flowed down their tongues
And across my face
Seeping deep into my psyche
And leaving me with a layer of filth
That I had worked so hard to clean
That I had worked so hard to leave behind
The perceptions of others
Created a reality of their own
Encompassing the little world
I tried to belong to
I wondered if the truth is maybe they saw
Before I did
That I did not belong at all
And that is why I fell into a sea of chaos
A well of fear
Why do I long to be back there
With you
But why do we let others infiltrate our thoughts
As if we have no guiding light of our own
We know better
I think I do
How to survive the spread of their ill-informed convictions
Keep yourself alive
Do not fail to speak
To burn bright with the knowledge of your fire inside
And what you know is true for you
Drama is a virus
A sticky goo
That makes people feel connected
Without realizing they are infected
Gum that insults the place it is discarded
By never really coming off
And never really letting go

Ripples
Into Timespace

The waves I make today
Create a change in the timespace
A ripple away from destinations
That fade away
But I pray
To look into your eyes
To see you learn
To see you grow
It is not my decision to give up
You must know
I can’t control the hourglass
I want to be ready
I’m still so unsure of that life
I’m still such a child
I don’t want to sacrifice
But I want you
Oh how I want you
It’s my fig tree
I won’t let it die
I hold you in this heart
You are a bright light inside me
Forever a dream
Forever alive
I pray time is on our side

I Know But
I Want To

Went to bed chills to the bones
A rose was frozen the the thorns
Like a crystal
When I woke I heard the news
The perished are now in full bloom
It’s a miracle
Oh we tried so many nights
We became so tired
But oh the desire has materialized
Just as it expired
Oh I know I do
I know but I want to
I do
I gave away all I owned
I made a bed for days to call home
To lay down in
Drove through blizzards faced the wind
To find my sole reflection
Staring back again
Oh we tried so many nights
We became so tired
But oh in the moment of revelation
Our strength transpired
Oh I know I do
I know but I want to
I know but I live to
I know but I live to love to
I do

Share Who You Are

Share who you are
I see you are holding in
Why do you hide
You are my dearest desire
To know the insides and out
Speak to me truths
Speak to me in a poem
I don’t care if it’s lame
Or if it’s too deep
And escapes from my brain
Or too dirty
Or even too clean
Even cheesy will please me
It’s all subjective anyways
Just tell me who you are
Share who you are
