    Perhaps I should have shattered my cocoon,& pondered deep what I have discerned,& kissed your reflection on the moon;not whispering you a long goodbye.Perhaps the parting came too soon;Perhaps our moon song’s doomed to die,& sway your affections for mine — unreturned.That can’t but to the death of love attune,& quaff the harsh moral so […]

    I’ve been to the prairies.& on the faintest hour,A love remembered as sour.& ‘pon the wings of fairies,my memories does it scour.A vision bittersweet, from which I can’t, but cower;A weakening peck of powerof one truthful deceit,Crouching to dread — devour.Incensing intensely,Condensing immensely,‘pon fields of crimson a flower,& sweetest roses just as supple.as thine sultry […]

    Come as I come unto the light;I’ve been a lonely long goodbye.I’ve wandered far this weary way.Doomed but to always live & die.Come to the tuneful arching tonight, Come to this aching sultry day,Come on the journey of sweet stray,& let me let your embrace caress my sky.& let me leave my kisses sleep upon […]

    Into the unravelings of God,I have seen you unfold;I have known you as told.Much as I right now know.You should now somehow go.You should just somehow leave.Much as God disappears.Where there’s no doubts, or fears,or pain, or disbelief.But pray rememberof my nature, & my voice,& my writings, & my tidings. As I bear you wonder,awe, […]

    You are not what you may seem.Deep into this captive thought, In the bleak of time, was brought,Shadows despondent, distraught,of a dark and distant dream.You are not what you may seem,Yet you know how much before,Fought, I, at the heaven’s door,Long to gaze at you once more,Losing lifetimes for a gleam.But you’re not what you […]

    I wage the war against your demon’s reign; & fight in you, with you through the unsaid. I claim your heart and claiming is my bane. I barter lives leaving my breath to wane. I utterly trade thine by mine instead. I wage the war against your demon’s reign. I kiss despair goodnight to welcome […]

    Between the lashes of your eyes, You captured Love wildly; You spawned the doors of trust. You paved the hells of lust, and approached my heart childly. That when — into the darkest hour — you bloomed out of my barren earth, auguring that everlasting spring. That age of ceaseless worshipping, a ceaseless glow, and flow, […]

    The heart in me burning; the aching, the yearning, the caring, the searing, the scheming, the turning. The heart in me burning. The self in me daring; the drearing, the bearing, the warning, the scorning, the tearing, the smearing. The self in me cheering. The heart in me praising; the raising, the razing, the aching, […]

    Unknowingly, Out of my omniscience, I rob, Your presence out of Life, I wandered lonely till I stop, Unto that lyrical strife, Unknowingly, your essence touched mine — all that was hollow, My deepest dormant effervescence; That whispered down:”No tomorrow” Unknowingly, I conquered the self in me subsiding, the maelstroms in my residing. Unpurposefully, I’m conquered, […]

    O’ Music, Only when you strum my threads, Vibrating into the fragrance of our decadence; unto the evening night treadings, within thy floral hues, and thine earthly cues. Blessing the heavenly and mundane weddings, O’ Aria, Sweet, Our time does fleet into the racing searing heat. A beating heart into the flawless memory Out of […]
