Drugs Inside Us

A sweet simmering ensues
Of the life force pulsating through you
A boiling point that tingles your extremities
Exalting your epiphanies
Alluding to the awe your conception crowned
An ignition from inside
That will revive the diminishing stride
That was dragging you down
Shall we lock on your brilliance?
Call forth a focus on the grand ideas that demand
The momentum of your raging blood flow
Until an ecstatic explosion like any other drug
Arises throughout your web of veins
And you can no longer be contained

Incalescent
Moments
Of Existing

If I close my eyes
I can feel the vibration
To the core of my existence
That takes me away for a moment
To the experience of what really matters
I feel the sun warming my back
And the air I breathe
Feels like the trapped heat inside an oven
With a refreshing chill
As a single drop of perspiration
Seeps down my skin
Leaving a cool saturation
That dries through evaporation
Just as I forgot
How hot I was

Needles

We belong to the needles
The tingling chills called forth
From the breathless whispering fireflies
Leaping from dusk to dawn
That sing of what is beyond our comprehension
Will you light up
Lift off
Will you release the weathered words
That penetrate inside your valorous bones
When you only need to know
You only need to flow
You only need to let go
And you will feel the rhythm of triumphant birds
Hawking in the distance of ancient dreams
Screaming your name
To wake up and sing baby
You are here with something
Do not let the cloudy day fool you

Let’s

Let’s be the illuminated presence of peace
Let’s hear every thought that guides the highest truth sing hallelujahs
Let’s be the guiding stars that never fade across galactic explosions
Let’s reveal momentous creations inspired by desires for our beautiful world

Poetic Experiences

Life is a colossally prodigious expression of poetic abstraction. We get to live it, breathe it, interpret it, challenge it, change it, choose it, shove it in the face, embrace it, honor it, indulge it. We get to perceive it, question it, translate it, express it back to itself, and look at it in a whole new way. We get to immerse ourselves within it and regurgitate it back as something with new meaning and depth to help us understand what it all means and accept we may never know. It happens without anyone even realizing it. In every conversation. Every time skin touches other skin. When someone smiles. When a tear steals the space on someone’s cheek. When you look straight into each other’s eyes. When you feel the sun warming your face. When you are thirsty and you drink water that never tasted so good. When the wind sends chills up your spine and you can see your hot breath escaping to run away with it. It’s all poetic. And it’s all experience exchange.

Ingredients For
A Delicious Destiny

Fearless footsteps in forests
Restless running through rain
Scandalous stalking of the sun
Temerarious taking of the tornado
Heroic hang-gliding beyond the horizon
Delirious dreaming for endless days

In A Dream
Or In A Love

I wake up
Not next to you
Inside of you
I went to sleep
Every night
Dreaming of you
Preparing for you
Feeling for you
Becoming for you
My dream
My love
My believer
I wake up
Not next to you
Inside of you
I left all baggage behind
To travel light
To fill with light
To fly into you
Feeling for you
Becoming for you
My dream
My love
My believer
And now I wake
Not next to you
Inside of you

Do I Leave Traces
In This Strange Land

Falling fast
Chest closing in
I notice I am sleeping
But I am too tired to wake myself up
I want to sleep
I haven’t slept for days
This fall feels like my soul is sinking out of me and I may die
And it scares me
And I think maybe I should wake myself up
But I am so tired
So I left myself fall
I am embraced in a purple sky full of color and light
And it takes my breath away
And I cannot sleep anyways because the pressure from the wind
Is too intense
Where will this lead
Is my body leaving me
Mad that I tried to leave it behind
I try to fly
And now I am in a cave
And I only run into the solid walls
But it does not hurt because I am asleep
Though I am awake
I don’t understand why it is so hard
Is there something in life holding me down
I see a man
I kiss him
I see my lover
And we embrace
Do I leave traces in this strange land
Feasts before me
Tempting ambrosial treats
Everything feels and tastes more electric here
Intensified to confuse and blend the worlds I thought I understood
Am I here for a purpose
Am I failing
I feel so aggressive but I only want to help
I only want to learn where this is
