Learning Curve

Running, running
myself ragged.
Sinking deeper
and steeper
into the dark.
No light shines
upon my face,
now sunken
and skeleton
while I yearn
for God’s grace.
Leaving behind
all that I’ve known
for a chance to
live a new life
apart from my own.
Gone to the ends
of this lonesome earth
flying and trying,
but always crying
out for the life
that I once knew.
Blinding and binding,
I attach myself to
those who can’t love
nor love me true.
Here in shadow
comes the night,
terrible and bitter,
not wholesome and bright.
Searching and hoping
for some way out,
I couldn’t say what
I wanted to get out.
Take if from me,
someone who’s tried
to live my life
but found I’d died,
to live life fully
means to live
a full life.

Dark Light

Look out, cause theres something wrong
And you dont know what it is
Watch out, or its sodom and gommorah
The malevolent order
Right now, before its much too late
Before its much too late
A dark light---a darkness never ending
A dark light---the devil gets his due
A dark night---is everywhere descending
A dark light---is coming for you
Now look up, well the skies are black
And theyre getting darker all the time
Watch out, for the things that you believe in
Youre gonna be attacked,
And you wont know what it is
Wise up, you better watch your step
You better watch your step
A dark light---a darkness never ending
A dark light---of perversion and hate
A dark night---is everywhere descending
A dark light---theres no time to wait
Look out, for the death of love
There will be no more love
Watch out, its yourself that you are fooling
Who do you think youre fooling
Shout it out, its a terrible thing
Such a terrible thing
A dark light---a darkness never ending
A dark light---the sun is turning cool
A dark night---is everywhere descending
A dark light---is shining at you
Dark light, dark light
Is shining at you, dark light

Traveling with Love's Dark Light

My heart is a graveyard
Full of cobwebbed dirge riddled tombstones
Upon grass desolate of care
As each epitaph reads
"Dead from conditional love"

Only the Raven's mourning is felt
Nesting on each beat's decay
A leper of Corvus sanity
Adapting to a world of bleak despair

Warmness, Still feeling a tad warm
The sun shines,
Through these cracks upon my heart
Into tiny little specs of an optimistic morrow

Confusion, With each "humanly" visit
As some pay their brief respects then leave
Running off with haste and forgetfulness
Am I suppose to be one of them?

The Raven's rapture grows

Darkness peering,
Nightmares unfold
Phantasmagorias foretold
As I bask into denial

So much fear, Why?
What did I ever do?

Love me, Within
That is all I ever ask of you

Many creatures of the night,
Are creations of rejection
Laden in the madness of a lonely demise

Love, It is not me, But you
The one who is the fool
Judging this outer Beast
By false Intuition, By false premonitions
Only without realizing,
It's the lies and deceit
That enables your own downfall
So be it
The beast in me sees beauty
Through the eyes of the Raven's inspiration
Purple peeks tinted in aspiration
As the light shines it's own residue
Of a hopeful spectrum upon a prospecting view
Upon the day the words "I love you"
Resonates the truth of every lasting moment

Love, I will find you
The Raven's fancy smile will be certain
As these emotions fly beyond all pained past
Headed for a future brand new
In fruition of a heart now stronger
Than it has ever been before

But till now and then
Love, You will never be my crutch

My spirit is free and true
Exploring beyond what I have ever explored before
How bout yours?
Love, Now I believe you truly exist, Do you?

Dark Air Dark Light

Where lifeless rivers weep
With shame, into the deep,
She sleeps a pained sleep:
Flows with rot.
killed by ugly progressing war,
She has lived so far
To live where darkness are
Alas! Sad lot.

She left the bright morn,
She passes meadows of corn,
For world sad and porn,
And dark springs.
Through dark like black veil,
She sees the sky, pale,
And hears the birds' mail,
That sadly sings.

Dark air and dark light,
Moves over bed and breast;
Her face is without rest,
Mothers only wasteland.
She lives with ugly pain,
Crossing over hill and plain,
You cannot feel the sail
Upon your hand.

Dark air and dark lore,
Upon stinking and thorny shore;
Rot, rot at every core
Till hunger shall cease:
Sleep that no sound shall cut;
Night that no morn shall shut,
Till all greed is met,
With perfect peace.

Lamp Lit Darkness In shadow Night

solo singer sang her soul songs
she sang opera upon life stage
all spell cast audience sat silently
listened silently sitting settled in chairs
listened to words in notes voice rapture

after success show was song sung over
an audience rose left slowly silent still
living echo of vibrant voice words enthrill
heard rosaceae heart opened bloomed
like life bloom song of vital rich red rose

later only I watched petal bloom free soul
after singer had cast off her formal shoes
to run barefoot in soft mist falling rain
to run through fresh puddles soft forming
in lamp lit mist darkness in shadow night

your soul free you ran bliss like a young girl
you ran vision race my heart also shared
could not contain in bound clay soul feeling
light shadow light shadow race you run
through night through many nights memory

The Light Shines In The Dark

The light shines
In the dark
And I can see
Your face
Shining against the dark
Tonight
I am not lying to you
My friend
I am telling you the truth

Each Night That Dissolves Into Bright Daylight

The droning of their complaints remain unchanged.
A reaching to conceive refreshing heights of consciousness...
Goes unaddressed.
An addiction to deceive is profoundly obsessed.
And left to those who choose to break away,
From a conformity suppressing common sense...
Each night that dissolves into bright daylight.
Leaving those 'dense' to restrict movement.
With a choice of conflict and wickedness to sicken.
As attractions to define limitations are defended.

Who Hath Ears To Hear Let Him Hear

The sun doth not the hidden place reveal,
Whence pours at morn his golden flood of light;
But what the night's dark breast would fain conceal,
In its true colors walks before our sight;
The bird does not betray the secret springs,
Whence note on note her music sweetly pours;
Yet turns the ear attentive while she sings,
The willing heart while falls the strain adores;
So shall the spirit tell not whence its birth,
But in its light thine untold deeds lay bare;
And while it walks with thee flesh-clothed the earth,
Its words shall of the Father's love declare;
And happy those whose ears shall hail its voice,
And clean within the day it gives rejoice.

My Little Light

I need my little light to shine, for The Savior, all the time,
That light God has put in me, for everyone around to see,
The difference now in my life, in the Light of Jesus Christ,
Each and every place I go, my light for Christ must show.

The light God has put in me, is light that leads to eternity,
A light that leads other men, to know that I'm Born Again,
Born of God's Spirit above, providing all light I speak of,
Light that is all from God, this I say with a confident nod.

A light must shine every place, as we're still under Grace,
In an age where wrong's right, I need to show God's light,
Light shines best in the dark, and it begins with His spark,
From God's light deep within, to be light in a world of sin.

When I'm going through a trial, His light shines, no denial,
Through a trial or in a test, God's light surely shines best,
It is Christ's Light men see, not the strength of you or me,
For in a day when all is wrong, it is His light that is strong.

God's light reflects true peace, that all see doesn't cease,
Peace that is from the Lord, by others, goes not ignored,
As God affords us in this life, to point all to Jesus Christ,
For His light shines anytime, as I'm God's and He is mine.

At Their Best

Today the world’s appalling indeed, with many men in spiritual need,
Not discerning of life here at all, spiritually blinded due to man’s fall,
His sinful fall from Gods Grace; where they communed face to face.
Fellowship with God of Eternity, was marred by Satan’s dark iniquity.

Evolution has replaced Gods Truth, so man fears no Divine reproof,
Sinking deeper into dark ideology; creating for man skewed theology.
Men in pulpits have denied Creation, skewing Gods Holy Revelation,
Men by way of evolution’s progress, are glorified animals at their best.

Many of these men darkly depraved, are affecting people truly saved,
People who are young in their Faith, not leaning fully on Gods Grace.
Man’s evil nature, although denied, from Gods eyes they cannot hide,
And He’ll give them over to their lust, and then return them to the dust.

Even though evil is rampant friend, Gods Holiness prevails in the end,
All man’s wickedness will not stand, at the coming of The Son of Man,
For only righteousness shall prevail, as sin is destroyed on every scale.
And The Lord will not lose His own, saved by The Lamb on the Throne.

All true believers snared by sin, in Christ’s Power are delivered by Him,
Sin will be destroyed forever friend, and wicked men will see their end.
Not only has God forgiven His own, but Christ will see us safely home,
Where they shall see more than rest; living sinless forever at their best.

A Yellow Light Shines

A yellow light shines
in the dark sky of life,
showing the way to
a wayward stranger.

A yellow light shines
illuminates a sign
and the emergence of a staggering soul
from the entrance of Scylla
but Charybdis
waits inside.

A yellow light changes to red
and then to blue
and slowly Proteus forms
Slowly.....
Life's Jekyll and Hyde sobers up
to the realization
that the light within him
is about to be extinguished
and his hopes dashed by
yet another
gin on the rocks.

Two beautiful stars

As shiny and glittery as ever,
The clouds try to cover,
But the luminous penetrates always,
The moon passes in amusement,
Such light i have never seen,
Like two roses in the grass field,
You and me in the merciless world,
How wonderful and bright we are,
The two little stars

Where is the sun my love,
Do we really need it darling,
Our love an example of light,
In the night we shine so bright,
You, me, two little beautiful stars

The world sees in amusement,
The light sparkling from above,
The beams of grace and chastity,
Who else can it be,
The two beautiful stars,
You and me my love

Endless Walk Holder Of The Light

my body seems to slow down
the dark light shines so bright and clear
i can see who is holding the dark light it's me
the one i used to be the one i never wanted to be
he guides me towards a building i remember it
it's where i promised myself i would be different
he grants me one last moment before he will show me
i tell him there's no need i remember clearly
but still i need to show you before you truly can accept
i see a vision so clearly like it happens as we stand there
while watching i feel myself changing
i don't fear it anymore i'm ready to embrace it
the vision comes to an end the dark light is in my hands
i realise i'm truly back i can feel it in my soul
the one that never should have been born
the one that was granted life as an mistake
the one you should truly avoid is me

Walt Whitman

Of Him I Love Day And Night

OF him I love day and night, I dream'd I heard he was dead;
And I dream'd I went where they had buried him I love--but he was not
in that place;
And I dream'd I wander'd, searching among burial-places, to find him;
And I found that every place was a burial-place;
The houses full of life were equally full of death, (this house is
now;)
The streets, the shipping, the places of amusement, the Chicago,
Boston, Philadelphia, the Mannahatta, were as full of the dead
as of the living,
And fuller, O vastly fuller, of the dead than of the living;
--And what I dream'd I will henceforth tell to every person and age,
And I stand henceforth bound to what I dream'd;
And now I am willing to disregard burial-places, and dispense with
them; 10
And if the memorials of the dead were put up indifferently
everywhere, even in the room where I eat or sleep, I should be
satisfied;
And if the corpse of any one I love, or if my own corpse, be duly
render'd to powder, and pour'd in the sea, I shall be
satisfied;
Or if it be distributed to the winds, I shall be satisfied.

Shake Dog Shake

Ha ha ha
Wake up in the dark
The after-taste of anger in the back of my mouth
Spit it on the wall
And cough some more
And scrape my skin with razor blades
And make up in the new blood
And try to look so good
Follow me
Make up in the new blood
And follow me to where the real fun is
Ha ha ha
As stale and selfish as a sick dog
Spurning sex like an animal of god
I'll tear your red hair by the roots
And hold you blazing
Hold you cherished in the dead electric light
Your face
I'll never see you this way again
I captured it so perfectly
As if i knew you'd disappear away
Shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake dog shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake dog shake
You hit me again
You howl and hit me again
The same sharp pain
Wakes me in the dark
And cuts me from my throat to my pounding heart
My heart
My shaking heart
My howl my shake dog
Oh shake dog shake
Shake shake
Shake dog shake
But we slept all night in the virgin's bed
And dreamed of death
And breathed like sick dogs
We slept all night in the virgin's bed
And breathed like death
And dreamed of sick dogs
Shake shake
Shake dog shake
Wake up wake up wake up
Shake dog shake
Wake up wake up wake up
Shake dog shake
Wake up in the new blood
Make up in the new blood
Shake up in the new blood
And follow me to where the real fun is
Shake dog shake

Palpable love, true beauty, wandering in thee

Palpable love, true beauty, wandering in thee
Touching each atom, insinuating in every gene
Playing each organ, in solemn symphony;
I hear thy deaf beauty, thy beauty I feign.
Magnificent, marvelous I seamlessly wonder
Can my mind ever achieve the beauty of thee?
I can only listen and not touch thy thunder;
The musical nature which thou compose me.
No genius, intuition from love's orb
Revolves around thee and the soul thy possess,
For in music and by music thou absorb
All truth, all beauty, that my heart doth obsess.
So orchestrate with thy breathe and uplift me high
Without thy music, I am mortal, I know I shall die…

Love Is A Night

Hangin out in new orleans
Diggin on the bourbon scenes
Just feelin the vibes of the oncoming days
There aint no texan chaparral
To hide away all those southern belles
Just thinking about that georgian gal conjures a crazw
Love is a night
Who really cares if its wrong or its right
And all that I care
Youve been some life and love I could share
Got a thing in tennessee
She aint about to marry me
Theres never been a time she says yes and means no
I had a case in carolin
From makin love on rose wine
Its strange how they come and they go
Love is a night
Who really cares if its wrong or its right
And all that I know
Youve been some life and love on the road
Love is a night
I only know the moment is right
As for the ladies Ive known
They mean so much when youre all alone

August

'This light shines in darkness, but unless God Himself draws us out of the darkness, we are not enlightened by Him, even though He be present.' Thomas Merton


soft summer wind
murmering trees
distant train
calling.

sun-washed patio,
the house gleams
in the after-
glow of noon.

the chairs are
waiting.

limbs lean to the
ground,
heavy with apples
waiting,
round,
sweet velvet light,

all waiting.

Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth (BIBLE)

Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth

Seeds grow naturally when watered,
So also does sin and the thoughts of it.
The Word of God cannot be altered
By reading it one gains eternal profit.

When on a journey, one needs sight
Or else there's the danger to stumble
One cannot see without adequate light
And to go the Right Way, he's not able.

Thus in Life one needs God's Word
It's the Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth
All Wisdom, Peace, and Comfort it accords
Makes one so rich his light shines forth.

And know that God will not be mocked
A man shall reap all that he sows
Man's words are weighed for what it lacked
For God does hear and knows.


B- asic
I - nstruction
B - efore
L - eaving
E - arth


'The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and they are Life.' JOHN 6: 63

The Quest

I am looking for Love. Has he passed this way,
With eyes as blue as the skies of May,
And a face as fair as the summer dawn?--
You answer back, but I wander on,--
For you say: 'Oh, yes; but his eyes were gray,
And his face as dim as a rainy day.'

Good friends, I query, I search for Love;
His eyes are as blue as the skies above,
And his smile as bright as the midst of May
When the truce-bird pipes: Has he passed this way?
And one says: 'Ay; but his face, alack!
Frowned as he passed, and his eyes were black.'

O who will tell me of Love? I cry!
His eyes are as blue as the mid-May sky,
And his face as bright as the morning sun;
And you answer and mock me, every one,
That his eyes were dark, and his face was wan,
And he passed you frowning and wandered on.

But stout of heart will I onward fare,
Knowing _my_ Love is beyond--somewhere,--
The Love I seek, with the eyes of blue,
And the bright, sweet smile unknown of you;
And on from the hour his trail is found
I shall sing sonnets the whole year round.
