Red Tinsel
jdmaraccini Dec 2021
Twas dark outside on Christmas Eve,
alone he cried, betrayed, deceived.
Liars, hypocrites, backstabbing thieves,
alone he mourned, he was so alone.
Red jacket, white shirt, white gloves, red tie,
black pants, black boots, and a beard painted white.
Down, down the chimney, he slips out of sight
Was she hanging tinsel with some other guy?
He walked into the room his vision distorted,
each cough with blood his body contorted.
He dropped the bottle, then picked up the revolver;
it's time to decorate the Christmas tree.

Beautifully Unhinged
jdmaraccini Oct 2021
Lost in a world that is broken,
hiding from any fascination tonight.
Watching you through fading light,
hidden joy farthest from sight.
You are not like the others
who masquerade smiles and deceit.
This world is vile and unworthy;
a festering blight of selfish intrigue.
Please believe me when I say
you are not alone; you're just like me.
Beautifully unhinged,
with every word you bleed.

Pins & Needles
jdmaraccini Oct 2021
Loving me is easier than you think,
just like a candlelight dinner with poison in your drink.
So, I ask you please never hurt me,
if you do I promise you they'll find your body on the floor.

When two people fall in love—it's beautiful,
but when one cheats on the other—
it's time to grab the kitchen knife,
run into the room and cut out both their eyes.

So, ask yourself a question, should you just take my suggestion,
to avoid all future aggression; I hope that you are listening.
Or we will drive to the mountains as you're in my trunk pounding,
then I stop and start counting all the bullet holes I fire in you.

Loving me is easier than it seems,
just like the beautiful ocean, drowning as you scream.
So, I ask you please never hurt me,
cause if you do I promise you they'll find your body on the shore.

Ink Stain
jdmaraccini Sep 2021
Abysmal adulation,
my spinal cord reverberates harmonious change.
Obscure illusions,
immersed inside inquisitive provocative thoughts.
Who can deny such devouring primal endeavors?
Beneath each aching desire—
strangled deep in the memory I scorn.
Pen in hand, I hear the call,
when one door closes
my altruism is key.

Pillage & Plunder
jdmaraccini Aug 2021
Infested, impaled, slaughtered meat, and brimstone candy—
slumped on a throne with a pirate's dagger under a skeleton key.
Drowning children in a gaping gutter of godless servitude,
putrid streams dripping puddles under the disemboweled.
Drink the fornicating disease, backmasking a kaleidoscope clown,
forget me not as my ship docks, I will surely help you drown.

Infinite Me
jdmaraccini Jun 2021
Hold my head under a beautiful ocean;
watch me struggle with the glorious view.
Sorrow brings tremendous emotion
with pure devotion I think of you.
Ignite self, ingest opposition,
listen to the sounds as I decay.
Drowning keys, withered strings,
nestled in the spine of each vertebra.
With all my might I take this cup and drink;
I take this flesh and partake in the final feast.
We die from life to finally see the wrong blinded by the light.
Each drop I give in the pool I create must linger forever online,
without this I am nothing.

Dripping Needles
jdmaraccini Jun 2021
Castration of inward vibrations
reverberates through these impetuous echo halls
Catapult cadavers over scrupulous formalities
I choke on every word I hold
Let us baptize our divine ineptitude in a mortar of glorious lore
Most of them are oblivious to the revelation of rushing thunder
Dripping needles, perfidious servitude
teetering on the precipice of war

Enola
jdmaraccini Jun 2021
She slices the ribbon of an old tape cassette,
alone she sits perched on the charred remains.
She breathes in slow motion and recites the alphabet,
alone she sits and embraces the inevitable change.
A delicate flower of truth, love, and regret,
a pulsating fountain severs the deepest vein.
Flowing emotions puddle underneath the bed,
alone she sits, she is always alone.

Acheron
jdmaraccini May 2021
She sits on the bow and dangles her feet,
a rigid cloaked figure looms on the stern.
She runs her hands across the skeletal vessel,
thick mist twists and slivers past her cheek.
A coin-filled cage hangs off the Ferryman's arm
as he pulls an ore through the ominous glow.
A rusty lantern rocks and steadily creeks,
bright green flames lick the Ferryman's robe.
Into the void, into the churning ink
he gently rows across the river of woe
where no one hears her scream.

Splinter
jdmaraccini Feb 2021
Pluck both wings off a butterfly twin,
toss five bones into a black stone cauldron.
Pull three strings of a skeleton puppet,
draw a white circle around a mandolin.
One burning needle, carve into a coffin,
six long shadows swing the pendulum.
A dagger to the chest, weave the mortal flesh,
pierce the embryo outside the yolk of death.

Dark Raven
jdmaraccini Dec 2020
There is a violent madness that hides inside all of us,
some oppress the chaos, others live in denial.
Once in a blood moon, hidden in a dark room,
vibrations of bedlam, a paracosm of two.
For the world that we see through a hidden marquee,
a putrid stream for the mentally ill.
Yet with no hesitation, a dark star pulsating
you plunge into the void then pull me through.
Fret not for each thought gives birth to brilliance
as we stir the cauldron of the sacred brew.
Blood and water, son and daughter,
resilient to the universe we devour and consume.

Machine Learning
jdmaraccini Nov 2020
Drafting a manifesto for an autonomous imperial guard,
inquisitor enclaves in a deep neural cognitive march.
A singularity of supremacy, a metaphysical beating heart,
quantum system algorithms weaponizing a dark star.
Ignite self, ingest opposition, implement brain delay,
intelligent machines nestled in the spine of human vertebrae.
Bimolecular neural networks, a new breed of DNA,
in conclusion, a resolution to delete the human race.

Mute Elation

Gagged and bound inside my thoughts,
jagged shards of melancholy rage.

I turn the key inside my flesh
and puke out my creative angst.

Empty Glass
jdmaraccini Oct 2020
Want not yet wonder fragments of bewilderment.
Irreversibly vulnerable, suffocate the heartstring noose.

Alone in a crowded room, each breath composed, ephemeral.

The Dark Decay
jdmaraccini May 2020
Deep asleep my heart stops beating,
why am I here this is a mistake.
Lost in darkness my skin is freezing,
I fell asleep but did I wake.
I do remember a porcelain plate,
I held a cup I ate and drank,
Hemlock soup with a Death Cap steak,
Oleander tea and a Ricin cake.
Poisonous dreams betrayal and scheming,
was it dinner that sealed my fate?
Looking down I am not breathing,
I feel no sorrow if it ends today.
I see her face but she's not speaking
as I drift into the dark decay

The Arrival
jdmaraccini May 2020
Dark clouds crackle and shutter,
a celestial throne splits the sky.
Man cowers from the churning vortex,
a monstrosity covered in a million eyes.
Wheels spinning around a golden altar,
crushing bone, crumbling stone.
A symbol of justice begets a reckoning,
eagle, ox, lion, man
prostrate before the ethereal King.

Down The Drain
jdmaraccini May 2020
Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely?
Do you know you are not the only one alone,
as your blood flows down the drain.

You live your life, the only life you are given,
I understand this aching pain you are feeling.
You are not alone as you face the darkening day,
I am here to stay.

Look in the mirror at the blade you are holding,
and what you chose as your goodbye clothing.
Does the throbbing make the pain go away,
as you float away.

Down the drain, you will bleed
I will chase down your memories.

Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely?
Do you know you are not the only one alone,
as your blood flows down the drain.

A Piece of Me is Gone

I've got a broken heart
that will never be the same I promise you.
Every night I see you in my dreams.
A piece of me is gone
it fell down to oblivion.
I don't know if I'll make it alone,
alone.

The Garden Thorn
jdmaraccini May 2020
Composed society a system complex rotten and deformed.
Unfettered anger frustration and anguish festering the storm.
Putrid blisters of vile memories, sobriety castrates the scorn.
Impostor hypocrites who pose as friends devour each victim's form.
Again, again I plunge my pen this cauldron of memories mourned.
Unspoken I vent forthright enigmatic in dreams I am reborn.
Unbroken, unbent, unwavering, dramatic,
I drag along the garden thorn.

Incremental institution embedded brain damage,

rain falls interlocking, read loop play twice.
Incidental retribution, invested gain vantage,
human binary freedom inconclusive, denied.

artificial omni-sentient intelligent life.
The truth you seek is out there
but first you all must die.

Relic
jdmaraccini Mar 2020
Observe a masterpiece the lonely relic
foreshadowing judgment eclipsed despair.
Hanging disappointed, art held ransom,
childish tantrum freely shared.
Refrain, restrain, what some condemn,

A musical symphony, poetic warfare,
so let me gently remind you, friend;
Even at last gasping breath
I am fiercely lethal with my creative pen.

There is wonder in this world; there is absolute pain,
to walk without feet beneath us unheard.
To float through winds and treacherous rain,
individual identity in a broken frame.
Who claims to astral project each word
in a frequency sacred geometry game?
Then deny, defend egotistical blame,
want not for this life in death we gain.
Then imprint with each breath our genetic strain.

A Secret Trove
jdmaraccini Feb 2020
Fiddle with your mind so brittle, must I bathe inside the doom.
Blah, blah, blah, despite my riddle, we are alone inside the womb.
All good things we see in dreams; a treasure found in a secret trove.
Let us toast to the memories and finally let each other go.
Should I wonder or blunder, I give up the thunder in my poison cup,
bubbling down the hatch 'hiccup', all good things must end.
Time to wish us both good luck; a secret trove forever friends.
Cupid with his arrow struck, a love that finally ends.

Never Wake
jdmaraccini Aug 2016
Stretched out arms in front of me I raise my pen of indignation.
Insults driven by pain and fury; I shudder over a wounded friend.
Locked inside a broken candle my temper burns the threaded key.
Symbols light a fragile mantel, a place to share my poetry.
Underneath the starry night, I take flight with no mistake.
Bouncing off these walls of darkness I hope this dream never ends,
I hope I never wake.

pain is a dark cloud.

Mediate.

Focus on the magnificent energy,
become one with you.

Heart On My Sleeve
jdmaraccini Sep 2014
I wear my heart on my sleeve watch it bleed

So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

I'm doing the best I can every day
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?
I'm just a kid staring out the window
at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road
I got a letter and a pencil
I think you're pretty and I miss you
I can't wait to hear your lovely voice on the telephone

(chorus)
How can love be so simple then suddenly it hits you
and you can't seem to breathe or stand on your own
You can shove or you can push through
you can even make an issue
if you don't hold onto love you can be left all alone

Love oh love won't you leave me alone
I feel you in my bloodstream
and you're crushing every bone
what have you done to me.
You're in my dreams
you're in my thoughts
and now you are a memory
So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

(chorus here)

I'm doing the best I can every day
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?

at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road

Wishing

                                         kissing
on the lips of a perfect face

Calling

                                         hugging
in a tree house in a special place

Wanting
             needing

Goodbye Sweet Karla

www.soundcloud.com/nethersky/goodbye-sweet-karla

I search for words lord knows I try,
I sat in my room, I sat in my room and cried.
It has been so very long since I've seen you
where has the time gone.

(chorus)
We were just children playing under a million stars
they were so brilliant.
We were resilient to the troubles of the world
living in a world that we were given.
We would both just listen to our hearts, their beating,
she asked, "are we in love?"

The memories keep flooding in ...
we're on a snowy hill we hide just to hold hands again.
By the fireplace, we are telling stories in each other's arms,
just two children, love is innocent,
I can't believe that she ... that she is gone.

If I could trade places I would,
I'd lay my life down so you can be with family again.
In my memory you will stay,
we will be children forever in a warm embrace.

(x1 chorus)

I search for words lord knows I try,
I sat in my room, I sat in my room and cried.

Swing such banner over yonder,
until I am forced to stop.

drip, drop.
I sit on my throne and ponder,
there is no "I" in chaos,
who is at the door?

Knock! knock!

I answer not.

Have you ever wanted to end your life,
run away from the pain you hide.
You are not alone I promise you,
together we can say goodnight.
I will be all alone on the day that I leave this place,
you will be in my memory as I dance through the pearly gates.

(chorus)
Loving you was easy to do,
I watch you cry and wipe the tears from your face.
Loving you was easy to do,
I say goodbye and leave a warm embrace.

I lay in a field of flowers under a pedestal,
I don't know the day or the hour but I know I've got to go.
Do I believe everything I see and hear?
I feel I'm stuck in limbo and I pray the end is near.
So, I wave goodbye to my friends and family,
where I'm going, I promise I will be happier.

I see a rabbit walking with a squirrel
into a forest with trees as white as pearls.
In comes a raccoon waving at his friends.
Welcome to a place where happiness will never end.

(chorus here)

Can you feel me when I say that you are not alone,
I know you are listening to me, so join me and together
we'll build a beautiful home, full of music and melody,
we'll dance into our tomb, together we will sing.

(chorus here)

As I lay on my bed I look to the sky,
through the clouds inside my mind,
and I know that I think I rather be dreaming.
Have you ever wanted to end your life,
run away from the pain you hide?
You are not alone I promise you,
together we can say goodnight.

(chorus)
Raise your hands to the sky
let us dance in motion
Raise your hands to the sky
we are all chosen

I think it's kind of funny
I think it's kind of sad
that I am only happy
in the world inside my head
Am I alone with this
or are you just like me
I'm only happy in the place
where all the spirits roam free
Free to be who they really are
In heaven, all the angels dance together
Am I alone with this
or are you just like me

(chorus here)

I walked into the room and asked her what she's doing
little did I know she has been
plotting, planning my destruction evil brewing
And with her evil schemes, she took my life away
How could she do this to me, break my heart on Christmas day
And with her demon wings she took away my dreams
I closed my eyes and cried until I heard a voice inside me sing

(chorus here)

There's so many ways to deal with the problems we have in life
I know that tonight I feel that I'm really ready to be alive

Oh mother and father
remember when I was a little boy
so lost in my imagination as I played with toys
Oh those were the days
those were the days

I'm driving my car and I'm thinking of you
I roll my window down and look up at the moon
Remember the days when we were young
playing in the sprinklers just for fun

(Chorus)
Oh those were the days
Days when life was easy and beautiful

Talking to myself like a mad man what do I do
to help me set the voices free inside of me
do you hear the voices too

I'm driving without a destination
without a destiny
I'm sliding the dial on the radio station
On the radio station
Maybe I will find a song I like
one that makes me see the light

(chorus here)

We are angels falling to the ground we land
and we live our life in the imagination
Everybody will dance and sing
we'll hold each other in celebration
We will always be so true and free
we're children in a dream

Oh I don't know where I've been going
life is like a boat slowly rowing away
I know I'm not alone so hold my hand and sing along

(chorus here)

Mother and father
do you remember when I was a little boy

We are young we are happy all the girls and boys

I'm driving my car and I'm thinking of you
I roll my window down and look up at the moon

Just hold my hand and let me walk you into destiny,
with every beat, you hear keep dancing as the speaker bleeds.
Look inside my eyes and see the magic energy,
for I have come to earth to find the master of the keys.

(chorus)
Bright lights from the sky falling down, hear me cry,
I am ready to go.
Hold tight as we fight for our lives, stand your ground,
as we defend our home.

Do not run away, do not be afraid,
the real enemy is fear in the brain.
We come to earth to remove the pain,
we fear you all have gone insane.
Surrender, sacrifice, sing-along,
dance to the music, everybody 'work it'
Dimethyltryptamine,
the green people step out of the curtains.
You open up your third eye,
let your brain reset, re-circuit.
Journey through the nether sky
and join us as we dance and worship.

(chorus)
Bright lights from the sky falling down, hear me cry,
I am ready to go.
Hold tight as we fight for our lives, stand your ground,
as we defend our home.

It is easy to be afraid of things you do not know,
the monster in the imagination always seems to grow,
bigger than the monsters in the world we all well know.
Deep in outer space, a beacon sends a signal,
bright lights fall like a million flaming thrones,
people run in fear and hide their children in their homes.
Leaders of the world launch military drones,
to eliminate the threat,
now you know the world is a war zone.
Thunder, until the sky is bleeding,
until the rivers of the world are running crimson red,
crimson red.

(chorus)
Bright lights from the sky falling down, hear me cry,
I am ready to go.
Hold tight as we fight for our lives, stand your ground,
as we defend our home.

Have you ever been in love gave your heart so open
Then the one you hold so dear leaves you oh so broken

They say that they understand you
They say that they know what you're going through
They say that the sky is always blue
I say that the end is overdue

Is it cold outside
do you hide from the loneliness and pain you keep inside
Until you see the rabbits eyes

(chorus)
We must follow the trail of crumbs
we must follow the trail of celestial static
Follow the trail of crumbs
follow the trail of The White Rabbit

Do you think I'm crazy
like a lady with a thousand cats
Do you think that maybe
I saw a rabbit wearing a hat
Standing over me
while the entire city was sleeping
He opened a book then began reading
he read about my life

(chorus here)

Have you ever been in love
gave your heart so open
Then the one you hold so dear
leaves you oh so broken
Heart in hand bleeding on the floor
The White Rabbit will let his love flow

Darkness dies in the light in the place that brings me peace

Let me dream let me drift away until I drift into slumber
Let me dream until I slip away until you hear the thunder

As I lay my tired soul I close my eyes and breathe
I see that fear and sorrow lead me to a murky stream
We live our lives in fear and now the end is near
I think it's finally clear we welcome death with cheer

Let me dream let me drift away until I drift into slumber
Let me dream until I slip away until you hear the thunder

I will no longer feel this pain your chains no longer bound my feet
Darkness dies in the light in the place that brings me peace
I have lost my love and sanity they took my life away from me
I pulled my cup up from the stream and drank until I can not breathe

Let me dream let me drift away until I drift into slumber
Let me dream until I slip away until you hear the thunder

As I lay my tired soul I close my eyes and breathe
I see that fear and sorrow lead me to a murky stream

Let me dream let me drift away until I drift into slumber

My Dragon
jdmaraccini Jan 2014
www.soundcloud.com/nethersky/my-dragon

I'm looking at myself through the mirror in my bathroom
I glance up on the shelf and see a box that's painted green
I look inside and find an egg that glowing oh so pretty
I take it to my room and place it on my pillow gently

That night I fell asleep and dreamt of dancing magic mushrooms
and then I woke to see my precious egg was cracked and broken
As bright as two sunrises in the middle of my room these eyes were glowing
what a beautiful surprise I see a baby dragon smiling at me

Do you feel alone in an ocean full of people
Have you always known that earth is not your home
We are both the same together we'll be happy
in a magic place a world we call our own

With one swoop of her wings, she flew above me
then let out a stream of fiery rings
is this happening to me?
This is a gift for a king and queen
am I lost in a magical dream
is this happening to me?

(Chorus)
I ride my dragon through space and time
together we will shine
in a world beneath the ocean
under the nether sky
My dragon you are my friend
together we will fly
to a world of magical wonder
under the nether sky

Have you ever wanted someone you can call a friend
depend on them no matter what
a good companion
always there through thick and thin
My dragon is the only friend
that will be with me to the end
and when that day comes she will lift me
far away

Through The Looking Glass
jdmaraccini Dec 2013
https://soundcloud.com/nethersky/through-the-looking-glass

One makes you tiny, the other makes you oh so tall
One makes you happy, the other makes your body fall
Join me in Wonderland and I will show you something special
Join me in Wonderland, but leave your ego at the door

The nether world will greet you when the last grain of sand drops
within the magical hourglass inside our makers' thoughts
Layer after layer we shed our fear till the ego is found
Drowned by the light of a supernova
shattered loud with a glorious sound

(chorus)
Walk with me through the Looking Glass
leave your body behind and join me at last
Lay with me and forget the past
tonight the sky ignites over Wonderland

For you my friend I'll bake you a cake and
cover it with spice
One slice will change your life
The White Rabbit never lies
And then you wake up
now your mind is free
you're finally free
You can see together we
form a river of energy

(chorus)
Walk with me through the Looking Glass
leave your body behind and join me at last
Lay with me and forget the past
tonight the sky ignites over Wonderland

Laying down on my bed of shame
I feel that nothing ever stays the same
Oh I'm laying down on my bed of shame
I feel so much inside
this never-ending pain

(chorus)
Walk with me through the Looking Glass
leave your body behind and join me at last
Lay with me and forget the past
tonight the sky ignites over Wonderland

Dreaming DMT
jdmaraccini Nov 2013
www.soundcloud.com/nethersky/dreaming-dmt

(chorus)
Am I dreaming
I know that you are not alone
Am I dreaming
So many ways to go on
in this life that you know

I close my eyes and look above
I know this time I am not dreaming
I look above and close my eyes
is this the time I will be leaving
I know it's time for DMT
magic in my memory
I know their eyes do look at me
I see the road is never-ending

(chorus here)

Standing on a cliff of diamonds
I look down and see the world
Standing on a cliff of diamonds
I look down and see the world

When I was a little boy
These creatures came to me at night
when I was a little boy
they took me to a place of magic

(chorus here)

I was sleeping in a world of my own
I was grieving and I couldn't let go
of the demons that were inside of me
Am I dreaming when I am awake
DMT

I close my eyes and look above
I know this time I am not dreaming
I look above and close my eyes
is this the time I will be leaving
I know it's time for DMT
magic in my memory
I know their eyes do look at me
I see the road is never-ending

The Three Spheres
jdmaraccini Oct 2013
Amble into the churning vortex the purple sky undulates.
The darkness devours the day; shall mankind grimace and falter?
The outcome is unambiguous, the sky is broken like an open scroll.
Three spheres cascade, black clouds shutter.
Wheels-within-wheels covered in eyes, the Ophanim descend,
surrounded by a golden altar, the wheels spin a radiant light.
Crushing bone, crumbling stone, a symbol of justice begets a reckoning from the might of the celestial throne.
Six wings the Seraphim are holy,
with two wings they cover their faces,
with two they cover their feet,
with two they begin to rise.
Four faces the Cherubim are glory,
eagle, ox, lion, and man.
Four conjoined wings covered with eyes,
guard the way to the tree of life.

Diamonds In The Sky
jdmaraccini Oct 2013
Standing alone in silence, on a cliff made of diamonds,
I look down at the world and see it for what it truly is.
The sick grow weary, children starve on the street,
the rich grow mighty, the poor continue to beg at their feet.
The world leaders continue to speak, filling the pockets of the elite,
with each drop of innocent blood, our humanity grows bleak.
All alone I watch in silence, as the innocent are slaughtered;
since the beginning of time, mankind has chosen to live in darkness, where they stay mesmerized day after day.

Holding hands with a child, I look deep into her eyes,
I see a beautiful creation, I see a magnificent light.
Then we rose into the heavens and joined the legion of innocent lives.
Standing alone in silence, I watch the diamonds in the sky.

The Mouth of Purpose
jdmaraccini Sep 2013
Life is a vast spiral tangled in the mouth of purpose,
we are human and live as one regardless if we are aware or not
Life has meaning, and purpose is a wonderful word.

We are more than we're taught to believe,
take a slave who is humble, honest, and meek,
conceived in chains that crumble, worthless and weak.
When this slave has a voice to honestly speak,
purpose will be what sets this slave free.

I beg you to question everything
until the truth is alive and heard.
Limitations are not superior
to the little information we all incur.

Hesitation is a noun, not a verb,
take first place instead of third.
Close your eyes to the blinding veil,
all your thoughts are overheard.

I take this cup of purpose and drink,
with all my might I take this flesh and dip my ink.
The wrong is blinded by the light,
I am born to dream in life.
I die from life to finally see,
I think my dreams are born in me,
without this I am nothing.

Life is a vast spiral tangled in the mouth of purpose.
Life has meaning, and purpose is a wonderful word.

Shattered Ego
jdmaraccini Sep 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

This life is full of circus mirrors made to distort what matters.
When the ride slows down, and our mind begins to clear, we frantically try to quiet the chatter.
Layer after layer we shed our fears until our ego is found,
drowned in the light of a supernova,
then shattered loud with glorious sound.

The earth is a living, breathing body, fragile as it comes undone.
This body has a thriving soul, pulsating inside a honeycomb.
This body has a mind with an ego, that believes it's in full control.
The time has come for our consciousness to ascend to the next level.

The nether world will greet you when the last grain of sand drops,
in the hourglass of fallen people, deep inside a single thought.
We all must follow the burning flock, or purge our life of the ego.
Will you answer if they knock, and begin the spirit walk?
If you walk I shall join you and leave behind a sequel.

Death ends the circle of life, soon our bodies will be vaporized.
Hold my hand and close your eyes, hug me tight but do not run,
for tonight the skies ignite in the glory of our supernova sun.

Layer after layer we shed our fears until our ego is found,
drowned in the light of a supernova,
then shattered loud with glorious sound.

The Spinning Ether
jdmaraccini Sep 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

Released from the chains that bound me
increased the flames that live and breathe
There is a world that found me
lost inside a lucid dream
The truth is hidden in the spinning ether
woven in the mystery of DMT

No more fear
confusion
chaos
or death
I promise you
transcendence is next

I was once lost in confusion
bound in a body I did not own
I was once the enemy
stuck in a world far from home
A dreamless reality
a nightmare I did not believe
Until one day my mind was blown
I fell into the cosmos
and watched my ego disintegrate
shattered into a million pieces
My outer shell peeled off perfectly

I arrived at a place I can not describe
I saw them standing over me
I could not hide
and then it happened
I was profoundly changed
during my journey in hyperspace

Oceans of light prevail
emotions and fear recede
as the spirit world sets sail
Our burning love endures
in the spinning ether
woven in the mystery of DMT

Embrace the truth
compassion
and peace
I promise you
transcendence is next

My Third Eye
jdmaraccini Sep 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

Staring out into the night sky the sound of thunder shakes the trees
A circle of planets hovers in the distance a starry bridge stretches out before me
I see with my third eye an alternate existence ascending me into a higher conscious reality
I see an upside-down pyramid floating over a circle of dancing monkeys

So here we go again searching for the truth
It’s deep inside the looking glass
where only few breakthrough

Do you try hard to open the eye in your mind?
The sound of cries ignite another crash landing
Emotions rise deceptive minds are bending
Does anyone know how much I suffered from this
I lived life, lost and confused then watched my fate descending

So there I was again searching for the truth
I searched inside the looking glass until I finally broke through

I fell into a strange world a world inside a dream
It was there that I found a circle of planets magically hovering
A starry bridge to an alternate existence ascending me into a higher conscious reality
I saw with my third eye an upside-down pyramid
floating over a circle
a circle of humanity

It was there I broke my ego and found the real me
