I have a severe mental illness
But thankfully I'm in recovery now
Still it's one day at a time ( until I get better )

(( mysticism at night ))
exst Sep 17
I love the silence of the night
When there is no one about
Just me and the sounds of my soul stirring ....

I love the silence when it takes me over  Completely
It grips me and all I can hear
Is the whirling in my ears ( are these the whispers of angels ? )

Apart from the love of our fellow person
God is best found in the silence
For He is perfect silence and fullness ( the pleroma )
the first sound
  before sounds ( om )

The mind loves to create internal and external images of God ( and then play with these )
But god is beyond image and comprehension ( though we are created in his image )
And though God is far away he is yet always close  ( his absence marks his presence )

  Therefore Our job is to  let all pictures of God evaporate  and instead let the silence of the heart produce an image we can't see.  But yet can feel    ( the mind is in the heart )  and share this with others ....

So brothers and sisters our duty is to love in the day  and be silent at night
And in this way God will build a house in our hearts  forever . Amen

It's very hard to write it out at the moment
I have to tense my lips and face
I'm living every Day with my personality disorders
It's a constant battle
Music Helps
Poetry soothes
But prose that's
when
I can go like a rocket
I'm an outsider poet
I write like an outsider
Fragmented and divided am I

I just write how I feel , I perceive and see ( spirit , heart and psyche . I'm empty . I see it all
Simple as that
Because we're all divided and broken
Some of us More we're mentally ill

Once you're deep within

Instead I wanna be happy
And write my poetry here
Open up my soul
And cry many tears

Crazy Hegelian dialectic in my head
Half from myself
Others from the books i've read
Lots of monsters under the bed
The Rose is burning bright bright red
Where is ted
He's Down
with the feds
In the Ocean
Applying lotion
Perpetual motion
Lots of commotion
.
Crazy thoughts in my mind
Makes for steam of consciousness rhyme
If I see a cat I'm kind
No longer do I do them lines
Instead I sit in my cell and do my time
Or else I'll
Lose my thunder
My soul I plunder

Just as
any poet
should

******* on her ***** like a socket
Swear I had some more words but forgot it
Picking up the mike now so yeah drop it

Swallowing as many drugs as I can
A ****** up existential man plan
Stealing bare money off his nan
Really can't kick the can
Hope you can help me understand
Why the UK is a ****** up land
Tories got no real plans
Brexit a messed up ham
**** that gammon man

A grand in a week up his nose
Flexing a dependence pose
Makes for a weird flow
Turned up late for the show
Needed Half gram lines of blow

Sneaky devil's
Christ is
the true Rebel
He cranks up the treble
and pumps up the bass ,
He is the personification of grace
He's sits in a heavenly place
He loves the human race
He's here in this place ( my home )
He always wins the race
While pushing your face
  back Down into the dirt .
Christ has got my back
He protects against your attacks
He's better than crack
He wears a rain Mack
Which shine's like
a thousand stars

Because ....
God is love for sure
He's stood at the door
Waiting for us all
to come in

And  join   the   party
