for one second
i felt so alive
i felt intoxicated
i was captivated
by your eyes
they landed on mine
i felt the electricity flow through my veins
i felt like screaming
you smiled at me
i felt like i was reborn,
i've never felt so alive

Your glare weathered my coccoon
Leaving pores within my walls
So with each palpatation 
My thoughts bled out
i remain an empty shell till
U return the substance sustaining ur ego
And refrain from abusing my

Perplexed distraught opened my eyes to gaze back at the sky

I gazed at the moonless night brightly lit by a thousand stars
Listening the silent hum of my heart worn out by inner wars

Lost in a thousand thoughts spell was broken by a gust of air
Was surprised when realized my head bowed down in prayer

Thoughts were not accompanying my lips it all seemed a lie
Perplexed distraught opened my eyes to gaze back at the sky

I try God, I try taming my heart but doubt finds ways to creep
Telling it daily that He gives to His beloved even in their sleep

Following that path of righteousness when things go wrong
This world keeps mocking that for its tricks I am not strong

And then I saw a shooting star next moment it was no more
Realized strife’s are temporary our boats always get to shore

Remembering the times You got me out when things got rough
Forgive me God for my blessings I can never thank You enough

You haven't seen me yet.
I turned off the lights
In fear of your eyes,
In shame.

Has anyone seen us yet?
If I let them,
Will He love me more?
Will He squeeze my chin
Dig into my chest
with a clawed fist
And proclaim it's my blood He
He craves?
I pray
to someday feel that pain.

"By God's grace I'll never be
what He intended."

Thats the reason
we live on the surface,
It's too hot inside.
But one day the Earth will open up
And swallow us all with  its
Scorching tongue and
Maybe then,
Steam ripping through flesh,
We'll all be seen.

At a
On it.

‘who am I to gaze
Oct 8, 2013

Half a world away
No closer than two stars half bright
Half alive only half the time

And I the hapless gazer
The amateur enthusiast
The wakened soul who cries with the wolves
To the moon
‘who am I to gaze’
‘who am I to covet what I’ve left’

and they, far as the distant cosmos
form constellations with pins of flickering light
that I’ve never considered before
never known or cared to know
myths, and names, and stories that I
the hapless gazer
will only watch with a bleary jealous wonder

Passing nomads gaze with me for a moment
For a moment let me dress in their clothes
Eat from their table
Drink from their cup
For a moment
With the promise of return one day
To gaze with me
On their terms
For one more moment

fluidity? what is fluidity?
