All Together Now (Collaboration)

Another collaboration with my friend Kim from the blog Peace, Love and Patchouli

Always a pleasure and enlightening experience working with her. Our words weaved together into one; leaving me inspired and hopeful for another project later in the future 🙂 . Visit her blog and bear witness to how she brings light into the world through her amazing writing.

 

Invisible hands move slowly

Softly melding in to touch the coolness

I am created piece by piece

Sheltered in the warmth

I wait to serve.

 

In unison, I pour

The best of me and you

Molded formation of love and truth

Allotropes of the light

Touch gifted by none other

Than the most divine.

 

I feel you through each finger tip,

Forming my soul with such an innocence

And as seen through your eyes

You make me whole

And through my imperfection

I feel beautiful

Inside and out.

 

Kneaded, to a standard reflective of

How much we’re needed

Nature of our design sparks emulation

Feel the presence in our stillness

Look at us, witness your reflection

Through our rich definitive finish

Another love letter

From our Maker.

 

We stand together

Unique in our collective being

Standing tall and ready

To serve the needs of the starving soul,

To refill where there is an emptiness

With hope and love for all.

Hushhh…

And when they curse at me during a rebuttal

Also known as, the end of their intellectual capacity,

“Rest” I say,

“You did your best”.

Process.

Allow me room, in my Elseworld space

When I become one with, the golden thread,

Piercing the needle’s eye; knowledge and pen I conduct

To work in sequence, I sew pieces together like cloth

Pattern and tune of the stitch,

Relative to recipients.

Spectrum -_-_- Consciousness

connected_universe_by_ryky-dazdoxk

A simple, delicate kiss, from those sweet lips

Proceeds to be that which gives

A lapse to cognitive functions;

For but a second, what follows, besides

A Kickstarter to, perhaps, the most persistent

Stream of thoughts; coiling, concentric circles

Around me, like an asteroid belt,  

Overwhelming but enticing.

 

What they see as just another piece

Is to me, another window

They fail to peek through,

We, as poets, do not just write, no,

No… it’s not that simple bystander,

We open gateways to a new universe.

Cinder.

blinding_by_o0tim0o.jpg

Coils of unknown elements

Whispers echo in the south,

Of a vessel, formed of cinder

Every motion, guaranteed friction

Ethereal flux, with every flick

Of the wrist, cosmic defying combustion;

Far-fetched, maybe

And if it isn’t?

Loop

//Good//Bye ()

on_the_verge_of_august_by_incolor16-d58yw1q.jpg

*Final piece for this () series of poems*

*

Benefits of tonal shifts

The pressure encapsulating my heart

Dispersed, harnessed and reversed

From a dark pigment to an everlasting glow.

*

If I am to continue, on this journey

Darkness volleyed my way …

Love is all I need strive to return

From my end of the court, to yours.

*

To be who I need to be,

I need to acknowledge; let go,

The phantom pain…

We were not meant to be

And that’s alright… 

We embrace love in different ways

And hate you, I will not, instead

I will reflect on our triumphs;

Our cherished moments.

*

Unveiling my humanity, a rare sight to see

But, for you, I will

“You meant a lot to me

Good-bye …”

For real this time.

Higher Love (Collaboration)

heroes_by_cchomikk.jpg

A collaboration between me and the ultra talented Kim from the blog Peace, Love and Patchouli

As her blog name suggests, she spreads peace and love wherever her mind travels. If you haven’t already joined the journey she has embarked on, I suggest you do; you wont be disappointed 🙂 . You can find the link to her blog here

 

Slipping through,

Behind me I sense you

A daily taunt, a tease…

As the tides rise at your command

I watch smitten…

 

When today decides to marry

A new day, a dark veil descends

I relay, rather, reflect

The best you choose to give

The light, from your form

Brings me to their attention

Hides my darkness

As I orbit around their home…

 

I wake from a moving slumber

Feeling your cold cool loveliness caress

As you cover me like a glowing glove

My blush rises from behind

Radiating the warmth

As I burn through this space

Glancing as I watch you

Proud and silently slipping away….

 

… Slipping away,

Or so it seems, to them

For departing, means arriving

On the opposite side

Of this terrestrial plain

Time consciousness on infinity,

Never missing a beat, consistently

Gracing us with that light you,

In the simplest form,

Shine persistently.

 

I wait for you

Like a reflection in the mirror

I know you are there

Essences of my favorite shades,

We work the line

Invisible and steady

Knowing the cord reaches unseen

I am tied to you

And you to me

Eternally.

Bound To My Crown.

sunset_drops_by_cecilla-d4mzs8c.jpg

Everyone and no-one

Everywhere and nowhere

Panopticon, warden, to the cause

That instigates their effect

The punctuation mark to answers

That dine with inadequacy

The knot that binds the present

To the future, the piece

To a bigger whole

A bigger whole that is incomplete

Non-existent, without that last piece

That is me.

Ba/ance.

The magnet for unsolicited disdain

By no small fraction, the very process ingrained

Through and through, my memories, I read,

Skimming the ink blots, bookmarking my favorite bits

My first love,

The heartbreak, a platform I used

To make excuses for the darkness

Realizing my mistake, Harnessing the light,

Finding peace, a crime to aforementioned paramours

Their hearts rife with jealousy, anger and pain

I allow my words to pass the threshold

Of the spirit realm

Acting as a chaser to their concentrated negativity;

After, 

Find me in the Himalayas drawing a fine line

Between dark and light

 Illustrating balance, 

For My Self.

Infuse

 

Harbinger.

burning_away_by_setril-dap3w7m.jpg

In the open fields of happiness

Despair, misery, distress

… Weeds, on an otherwise perfect plain

Surface regardless, of no watering can

Reasons to be sad never cease

The dark side is self sufficient

I resist the persistent consensus

As I love in place of hate 

Cultivating my better self to stream

A steady supply to the side

I believe needs it most.
