Higher Self

Ask about my windows, World!
Inquire of my peace
Be vulnerable and take my hand
Let “what if” worries cease

If this seems manic to your mind
Then see me with your soul
I’ll take you to dimension five
Your ego slave to Whole

Neverworld

Amidst painted on smiles, I see
The practiced resolve to accept
What could’ve been
Repetition, day-in….

I pretend each has it in them
To convert all the pretty words
To tell the virtual, goodbye
And meet me at midnight

Vibing

I commit to no shadows

Self-imposing today’s low light

The only contrast I’ll allow, the soft snow falling’s concession to percolating coffee

This quieted timbre carries me

And I, it

Throughout these next daylight hours, should I spend them inclined to chase light and false-bravado song

I am grey-orchid today and candles tonight

Silent, but vibing

Elevated

Not taking no for an answer, She
Dressed up sexy for the crimes of He

Master-mechanic motivating, She
A fine-tuned engine emerges, He

Speaking in the same tongue, You & Me
Ascend from sorrow’s basement, We

Of Arc

Expletives why
In ode, you broken thing

Like a Lego on my footpath
In the midnight of my life

You the sword of Damocles
To my unsubmissive heart

Did you plan to steal my shoes!
Had you thought I’d have no clothes?

Away, most ruinous
I’ve long kept you at bay

Water Words

If you won’t mind
Lend me your drawl this late, tired eve’

Speak into these bones
As a balm

Be my guilty pleasure, if you please
The voice that simply won’t quit

Tuck me in as flowers in a field
Water me, hence, with your words
