Arrival
Of The Train

My body thirsts in every pore
Looking for doors
Where have we gone
Come in my window
Where is the whisper in our ear
The delicate sincerity of youth
The persistence of faith
And the beauty of innocent devices
We must be strong before the guest who arrives
Wants to take us aside
And put us to sleep
To forget what we are made of
Feel your deep pulse and arrive like a train
Ablaze
Cast in flames
Pursuing at the door
Yearning to pour ourselves upon the earth
To rise above the foolish hopes
And become the example we search for
The glowing ember of life
The oily remains of roses crushed
Erupted and awoken
Lush and luminous visions
To create from thin air
Are we almost there
Am I dreaming the possibility
Are we our greatest enemy
Or our closest friend

Do Not Think When
I Lay Myself Down
I Am Anything Less
Than A Wild Beast

Do not think when I lay myself down
I am anything less than a wild beast
I am taking my rest before I take my feast
I’ll be waking from my nest to erupt in heat
Ready to adventure on fields of dreams
To discover wonder
To scream in childlike delight
To cover the world in beams of light
My darling will you nap
Will you lay with me tonight
And wake with me as morning comes
As free and fearless wild doves
As wild beasts
As wild beasts of love

Abysm
Of Thought

Some days I feel so scattered
Drowning in the fully formed drops
Of melted thoughts
Like the pieces that make my mind
Are bloating my brain
And floating across the horizon
Farther and farther away
Each fleeting thought lost
Still alive but adrift
In an abyss
An eternal cosmic expansion
An endless bottomless sea
How can I pull it back up to me
Cast a net and anchor it down
Save the sinking idea about to drown
Hold it and mold it
Make some sense of it
Allow it to rest where it festers
Until it’s ready to grow
Perhaps I only need to let it go
And start all over again
Or give it space to know
The quiet within the questions
To release the resistance
To forget expectations
To collide in the stillness
Unti I am focused
Until I am peaceful
Until I am fearless
And ready to begin

Don’t You Dare
Give Up

Feel the tremble
In the deepest chambers of the heart
The earthquake inside you
Faith exploding through darkness
Your faith on the horizon
Belief in what you cannot see
Faith in creation
Of you and all you never believed
Faith rolling off the mountain
Your grateful acceptance
Escalating in momentum
Desires echoed through silence
Don’t you dare give up
Don’t you dare give up
Your breath is a fountain
In the melting sands of the desert
The wild whisper inside you
A rare golden treasure
Your eyes wild in wonder
Curiosity in the seen and unseen
Curiosity in your creation
It doesn’t matter what you believe
You are moving earth’s mountains
Your unwavering persistence
Though you may change direction
You bring light to existence
Don’t you dare give up
Don’t you dare give up
I’ll never give up on you
So here you are
Where shall you go next

Everlasting Desire
That Overcomes It All

Chasing the thoughts
They linger still
The wonder of the air
The crisp and the chill
That calls you forth
It never will
Let you be
It never will
Allow you to relax
Without a chase
Without a chance
No don’t delay
The final stance
An honored delight
A thrilling fight
To play with the clay
The moldable fabric
When you call the shots
Sacrifices worth
Having slept on floors
Having no cars
Having been cast aside
And over looked
Because you also survived
And reinvented
And sought out
The beauty of the unknown
Filling you up with spice
Teasing your mind
Leaving procrastination behind
To ignite
Ignite
Ignite the everlasting desire
Everlasting desire that overcomes it all

Our Hunger
Overcomes Our Fall

When there is emptiness on tongues
Nothing to linger on
No rays of color masking our eyes
It is more than just fine
To keep moving along
Hand to hand
And on and on
We run
No strangers to closets full of questions
Skeletons mocking ambitions
Iridescent skin to cover
Hours of slumber
And layers and layers of imperfections
Hand to hand
And on and on
We run
All the warriors over the wall
Arrows and flames at our throat
The land echoes the call
Our hunger overcomes our fall
Now is when the moon shines upon us
Now is when we believe what we thought
Though once lost in rolling seas
Now is when we live how we ought
All the hours moving like water
A river with an agenda
Looking back without our attachments
A fondly held thought
For we are free
We are free
Hand to hand
And on and on
We run
We move on
We move on
We move on
All the warriors over the wall
Arrows and flames at our throat
The land echoes the call
Our hunger overcomes our fall
Of all
The people
We need you
To be you

The Fuse Versus
The Muse

I wonder and I wait
Will they take the bait
They are falling for the tricks
Finding you are now their fix
I wonder and I wait
Will you take the cake
It is becoming very clear
You are getting very near
Observing the unraveling
Purposeful exhibitions
You didn’t learn it on your own
Daggers cloaks and clones
Are they coming for me
I may be left behind
For I find myself embracing
The opposite abyss
I wonder what is fate
What if all is but a game?
A muse and a creator
Both as powerful as ever
I wonder will I reach
Allow my hands release
To bring me in your view
With my paradoxical fuse
Yet the device inside me
Is drumming louder than ever
When my explosive charge ignites
The difference is no matter
