Splinter
JDM Feb 4
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
JDM 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
JDM 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
Biomolecular neural networks, a new breed of DNA
In conclusion, a resolution to delete the human race

Reflect
JDM Nov 2020
Degradation instilled within the boundaries of purpose
miraculous memorization of rapturous thoughts
Collapsed under shards of fanciful perceptions
perplexing deterioration vanquish inward foes
Dreams prolonged reverberate indignation
I unequivocally capitulate to the exultation of self

Mute Elation
JDM Nov 2020
Gagged and bound inside my thoughts
jagged shards of melancholy rage
Frustration strangles pent-up chaos
I plunge a dagger into my face
Ripping fabric caught on thorns
I drag across my paper waist
I turn the key inside my flesh
and puke out my creative angst

Empty Glass
JDM Oct 2020
Want not yet wonder
fragments of bewilderment
Irreversibly vulnerable
suffocate the heartstring noose
Longing for a moment
isolation ravages apathetic hope
A story untouched yet blemished
melancholy choking fallacious toil
Alone in a crowded room
each breath composed
ephemeral

Into The Dark Decay
JDM 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 with 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
JDM 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
JDM 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
JDM May 2020
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
JDM 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 victims 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

Relic
JDM Mar 2020
Observe a masterpiece the lonely relic
foreshadowing judgement eclipsed despair
Hanging disappointed art held ransom
childish tantrum freely shared

Refrain restrain what some condemn
reluctance alleviates anxiety gained
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

Vestigium
JDM Feb 2020
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
a frequency sacred geometry game
then deny, defend egotistical blame
Want not for this life in death we gain
Imprint with each breath
our genetic strain

A Secret Trove
JDM 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 the memories
and finally let each other go

Never Wake
JDM Aug 2016
Stretched out arms in front of me
I raise my pen of indignation
Insults driven by pain and fury
I shutter 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

Heart On My Sleeve
JDM Sep 2014
https://soundcloud.com/nethersky/heart-on-my-sleeve

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 your 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 your 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?

Goodbye Sweet Karla
JDM Aug 2014
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

I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla goodbye

Fear

Fear in, fear out
I fear what I doubt
I doubt what I fear
Swing such banner over yonder
until I am forced to stop

I shout
One tear, two tear, three
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

there is an unseen gravity that pulls inside my head
stealing my energy can you help me

Enough said
so say the voices inside my head

or am I gravely mistaken

I send this S.O.S.

Am I alive or am I dead?

does it matter?

Fields of Elysium

www.soundcloud.com/nethersky/elysium

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

I try to hide the pain I feel inside
and now I can't deny
I know that something's wrong
I know that every night
I want to grab a knife and go inside and
cut my broken heart out

(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 homes

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 singalong
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 here)

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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

The Three Spheres
JDM 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
as the three spheres cascade

Black clouds shutter and exude
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
they guard the way to the tree of life

Shall mankind grimace and falter
the outcome is unambiguous
The sky will break like an open scroll
as the three spheres cascade

The Mouth of Purpose
JDM 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
JDM 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 without a 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 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 without a sound

The Spinning Ether
JDM 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
JDM 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

The Construct
JDM Aug 2013
Our world was built to control our lives impeding our ability to thrive
Induced into a system designed for wealth, power, and lies

Most of us end up broken slaves for what little we have
The enemy divides our family as we follow another false flag

A price is paid for not conceding to an affirmation worth repeating
as our minds are all but defeated our souls are lost in a hidden war

History repeats itself as we are kept under control
When we accept defeat we allow the enemy to grow

I was a victim just like you as degenerates overtook my home
Life in the wake of calamity cast on a pile of innocent bones

I am not the one you want to convene because I question everything
I am just a voice of honesty who was finally set free
Who finally broke through the construct of lies
the lies we were taught to believe

Step Into The Looking Glass
JDM Aug 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

There is so much more than what we see
what we fear and choose to perceive
what we're told we must believe
a place that's hard to conceive
a portal to a world beyond belief
Since birth, it waits for you and me
a world beyond a lucid dream
I can tell you where this portal leads
it leads to a cure for humanity
So step onto the magic train
and learn to accept your certain death
For life is nothing more
then fabricated reality

Fate, it seems is not without a sense of irony

I finally broke free of the evil me
it wasn't church that set me free
it wasn't drugs from psychiatry
it wasn't money that made me see
I had to die from this reality
and accept my certain death

It's your turn to consider the facts
now breathe a bit and try to relax
Just one second as I remove the mask
then a crack like a whip and a panic attack
No slack as you slip into a static bath
your vertebrae split you are severed in half
You blast away and never look back
the math adds up so you have to adapt
Half of you is lost and your soul is cracked
the other half swirls in the endless black
As you float down an uncharted path
you finally breakthrough at last

All you thought you knew from life is shattered
as you step into the looking glass

The Crown of Fire
JDM Aug 2013
Arriving at the entrance of the ancient temple the white rabbit covered his ears. Shattering glass from a high pitched vibration he leaped away from a falling chandelier.

“I must find our beloved Harvest Moon."

The white rabbit said to himself. With stern affirmation a dark fog churned then into the vortex he was consumed.

He stopped at the entrance of the temple courtyard, everyone was frozen like statues.

"What has she done to all of you?"

He cried, then pulled out a magic rune deflecting a hail of daggers. The white rabbit looked up at a floating cocoon and saw the shadow witch hovering over the temple roof. Pale skin and veins glowing red, she was draped in a black tattered robe. With a sinister look and a Crown of Fire on her head the shadow witch spoke.

“White rabbit, white rabbit the Harvest Moon is dead!"

The white rabbit took leaped back then cried out.

"This can not be so!"

Then he pulled from his bag a magic scroll and read the words written in gold.

"I ask the wind to protect me from this dark magic despair"

Then he conjured a circle of trees in a water globe. The witch streaked across the air and swung around her jet black hair. Then she commanded an infestation of spiders to climb inside the trees and explode. Barricading himself inside a magic bubble he was protected from the onslaught of shrapnel. The white rabbit grabbed the water globe, leaped into the air and disappeared in a puff of amber smoke. The shadow witch pulled out a blood red pearl and murmured an incantation.

"Clever white rabbit, I shall find you in the invisible world"

The white rabbit snapped his fingers then magically appeared behind her. He snatched off the Crown of Fire from her head then whispered the following words.

"How dare you use dark magic on me!"

She jumped in fear spinning around, then summoned a devil hound. The white rabbit raised the water globe and merged it with the crown. A shock-wave of light pulsated the air then the witch menacingly yelled.

“Take him down!”

The white rabbit saw in his peripheral view the hound lunge to attack. But he was entirely to cunning for this, with a symbolic wave and a vigorous slash the hound was severed in two.

The shadow witch glared, then cried out.

“We shall meet again white rabbit, I promise you I'll be back!”

Then she summoned a fiery cauldron and vanished with a blinding flash.

The white rabbit ran inside the temple and approached the Harvest Moon. He stared with eyes full of tears and sorrow at a beautiful princess with hair long and blue. A beautiful creature he so desired, the love he had for her was true. He opened his bag and pulled out the globe which was now encased with the Crown of Fire.

"I brought you a gift from the shadow witch"

Then he smashed the globe and with a flash of light the Crown of Fire was finally free. The white rabbit held the princess and said.

"I have always served you because I love you and now I command you to come back to life!"

Then he placed the Crown of Fire on her head igniting a ring of light. The white rabbit looked down to see the Harvest Moon Princess opening both of her eyes.

Follow The White Rabbit
JDM Aug 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

We must follow the trail of crumbs
The crumbs of celestial static
Hold on to the secret truth
it's time to follow the white rabbit

Down, down the rabbit hole
where it leads
few will ever know

I am not what I was
I was what I will never be again
I found myself on the outside
like a mirror looking in
Like an enemy betraying a friend
and then my mind was shattered
Worthless fears crumbled to the floor
then the transformation began
The divine mind transcends

We are mindless souls
bouncing off each other
until the gears fit
and the machine begins to thrive
Together the powers united can be
connected by a force greater then life
The truth that leads us separately
to a place where our souls are defined
Not by the conflicted mind
but by the spirit that resides inside
Break through the dimension barrier
as time and the universe collide

I am not here to control you
I am not here to pass judgement
I am not here to behold you
I am here to join you in flight
I am not like the others
Like you I'm bound by destiny
connected sisters and brothers
the story is ours to write

We few
must follow the trail
the trail of crumbs
The crumbs of celestial static
So hold on to the power you know is true
as the planets and stars align
It is time
time to follow the white rabbit

Down, down the rabbit hole
where it leads
few will ever know

Divine Minds Transcend

Take a deep breath
are you ready to hack reality
Lay down and close your eyes
this is going to be amazing
Are you ready
ready to breathe into a cosmic smack down
and plunge into the great divide
Get rattled
Get shattered
Get snatched up from life
then drift into the glowing maze
a place to laugh and cry
Minds rewire during lunar flight
the blue monkey will grin from ear to ear
Strike a pose for your third eye
then return you back to life

The Rabbit Hole
JDM Aug 2013
Divine Minds Transcend

(First experience with N,N-Dimethyltryptamine also known as DMT)

Breathe in..Breathe out

Suddenly a rushing river of colorful static bounced off my chest
instantly a wounded soul I gasped vigorously
A count down so unfamiliar
I panicked and thrashed unwillingly
but there was nothing to hold on to
I feared it was to late
to deny this life full of fear
to accept I was afraid
Little did I understand
today I was about to see things clear

A violent pulsating thunder clapped loud
on my left the guides voice rang
"It's time to let go now"
on my right a gentle voice sang
"It's alright, breathe slow"
Peace fell on me for I was not alone
so I finally let go
and opened my minds eye
then vanished into the rabbit hole

The room fluttered, pulsated then streaked past me
A billion nuclear bombs inside my right eye
a warm embrace from death in my left
My mind and soul began to stretch
I was staring into a shattered void
A blazing spectacle terrorized with fear
stuttering shivers of a twinkling vortex
Wrapped in a celestial glow
the heavens reflected my thoughts like a mirror
I lost all sense of time
as new energy began to flow

Two alien beings sitting by my side
A vast ocean glow bright with radiant illumination
all thoughts transfigured
Godlike creatures basking in creation
Melting clusters of a constructed lie
mesmerized by the universe light
then life like a new born star
flickers in the imagination and dies

Looking inward, turning inside out
a darkened soul stands in place
The illuminated seed is planted now
but I will never be the same
I land gently inside my body
time to close the circle and pray
Grinning and smiling at my companions
I wave goodbye to the rabbit hole
and see the world with clarity

Legacy
JDM Jul 2013
So you brought a pen to a knife fight
you who write with brilliance
No need to fret
I guarantee you leave a legacy
life is not through with you yet

Your nouns have purpose
you who suffer every time you write
I swear this to you
every verb has profound meaning
let your poetry ignite the mind

I promise you this
draw from the passion you find in life
your adjectives will live forever
A spider web spinning digital dreams
each conjunction you weave lingers on

So you chose a pen to to conduct your life
choose each adverb wisely
You who creates poetry brilliance
For the legacy you leave with words
is how the world will remember you

Enemy
JDM Jul 2013
Liars and thieves
full of selfish greed
found the need
to butcher and feed
on every inch of my integrity

So I repay the fee
with eloquent misery
and conjure poetry
calibrated for the annihilation
of my enemy

Yet in the end
the truth be told
the greatest enemy
is me

Weep
JDM Jul 2013
You are hidden on one side I am on fallen on the other
we could work together but we are about to fall
Push through the static noise listen for the crying siren
it doesn't have to be like this
a lamb killing a lion
A melody over an angry voice
it doesn't have to be like this at all

Weep for me
so God can hear my honest suffering
Speak for me
when I am gone and just a memory
We are held
together by absolutely nothing
In the end
we break our souls in two

Broken by greed but I still mourn
a sigh of relief I'm honestly torn
Yet I still believe there's another life for me
Asleep on a one way street
even after my soul is broken
Even after they scorch my dreams
for now I still breathe

You are fallen on one side I am on hidden on the other
we could work together yet pride can be the final call
It doesn't have to be like this
it doesn't have to be like this at all

Weep for me
under a tree on a rainy day
Walk with me
and be thankful we live and breathe
Talk with me
and get lost in conversation
Until we fall asleep
until we sleep permanently
I will be waiting
I will be waiting for you

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
But I am done with this life
and this life is done with me
When I'm gone may you weep
when I’m gone may you weep for me

Weep for me
so God can hear my honest suffering
Speak for me
when I am gone and just a memory
We are held
together by absolutely nothing
In the end
I will be waiting
In the end
I will weep for you

Drift Away
JDM Jul 2013
Let me dream, let me drift away
let me fall into slumber and dream this dream away

As I lay my tired soul I close my eyes and see
there's a moment when fear and sorrow lead me to a dream
I will no longer feel pain, your chains no longer bind my feet
darkness dies in the light in the place that brings me peace

Let me dream, let me drift away
let me fall into slumber and dream this dream away
You too can join me there just close your eyes
allow the fear to lead the way into a better life

Let me drift like leaves in the ocean as you call out to me
I drift farther and farther away
The person I was, the person I have become
so much I had to learn, so much is left undone

Let me rest my tired eyes and greet another day
there's no better time or place to finally drift away

Let me dream, let me drift away
let me fall into slumber, and dream this dream away

The Phantom's Revenge
JDM Jul 2013
He suffered more than he thought he would ever suffer
He hovered over the demons frolicking in betrayal
How dare they deny the villain they created
the pain has been much to bare but he knew
He knew someday he would long to chase what most fear to face
A choice to embrace the dark despair then vanish without a trace

Stricken by a darkening gray his heartstrings a women played
The punishment is much to endure every soul eventually breaks
So what should the vengeful do for destiny to intervene
Should the vengeful wait he is no longer part of the human race
A table for two drifting in the shadows eyes lost of any soul
One question is left to contemplate then he whispers into the mirror

The phantom's revenge loves vicious betrayal
a terrible tale shall bring your life to an end

Death to Venus
JDM Jul 2013
I smite her without a flicker of remorse.

Web caught trembling prey
blistering sadness shallow grave
Repulsive rotten ***** stench
locked box of putrid sorrow
Blood clot hidden trench
vile secretion burrow

Wolf dressed goblin *****
muttering incantations
Teetering on a broken fence
seething hatred regurgitation
Greedy, evil, spineless, *****
cunning, patient, *****

One head liar
two face succubus

Speech craft forked tongue
slithering witch, foul gargoyle
Rebuke venomous, castrate hung
stoke the funeral pyre

Incubate the serpent fetus
demon, devil, fire
Never more sinister toil
bone covered soil

Death to the succubus
Death to Venus

Auschwitz
JDM Jul 2013
One nightmare I had a dream
a dream of a terrible exhibit
I was at a camp where nightmares grew
a place evil and ridged
A profound impression was left on me
the simplest of all was the shoes in block 5
The simplicity of it all seemed crazy
this place called Auschwitz
where I wandered in disbelief

Imagine if such evil was in power today
with access to all our technology
Cattle for the slaughter
they would slaughter us all
their hate filled solution
for the innocent soul

Human beings are inherently cruel
this exhibit rang sadly true
Fascism with applied biology
a profound impression to say the least
The simplicity of it all seemed crazy
a room full of shoes, battered and abused
A room full of shoes from dead babies
a profound impression was left on me

This place called Auschwitz
where I wandered in disbelief
Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third ***** in Polish areas annexed by **** Germany during World War II.  Millions of men, women and children were systematically murdered in these camps.
