lighten up, keep a sense of balance
a sense of humour in dark places.
nivek 1d
within seeming aloneness my child
you find every whisper offered
each turning to the Divine in your travail
is not lost on the Divine compassion
you offer up your pains and confusion
knowing deep in your heart,
deeper than all worldly wisdom
that indeed you are not alone
and in union with the Divine suffering
your suffering finds meaning and redemption.
nivek 1d
Circling the Sun
not too far away
not too close.
Eclipse of the Moon
perfect distance
not too close
not too far away.
and every other mathematical equation, the perfect distance between Sun Moon and Earth for there to be total eclipses
nivek 1d
Bricks and mortar
some inspiration
a bit of sweat
mixed all together
a small edifice
of belief.
nivek 1d
time turns deep in the earth
womb for dormant children
all seed and root to sprout
new life from black depths
holding out for light and water.

Amen
nivek 2d
May all those now departed this mortal life
whosoever did me wrong, whosoever they may be
Rest in peace, and may those souls whom I had interaction with in this mortal life that I caused any pain
likewise rest in peace
and also just as important may all my memories of all said folk, also rest in peace.
Amen.

Truth Serum
nivek 3d
popular and telling the truth do not always go hand in hand
in fact it can get you into a place you would much rather not go
alone, ostracized, and very unpopular indeed.

war
nivek 3d
war
war threatens along your edges
a place called territorial

war gets under your skin
a stake through the heart

the place where love resides
and is utterly tested.

your last groan
nivek 4d
your last poetry will be a groan
with a label tied to your toe
and a white sheet over your face

your last poem, your last groan.

Broken hearts are quite common
a scarred one a treasure
and mending one can take a lifetime.
nivek 4d
purpose is good
it saves you
from being led astray
nivek 4d
finding treasure in unexpected places
burying it again and forgetting
just where was it you unexpectantly found it.
nivek 4d
Trailing dreams of the night
stretched to no turning back
remembering snippets
-oddments disjointed and
yet coherently dreamy.
Searching for prophesy or
perhaps a glimmer of truth
somewhere deep in the mind
it has to be there, somewhere
we hope and dream on and
dream on dreaming on.

my lizard skin
nivek 6d
my lizard skin, cold as death
reaches out to claim your heat
to hold you in my clawed hand
and bite deep into your life.
To howl in the mountains
and groan in childbirth
to wipe my mouth of blood
while picking you out of my teeth.

Snowed in, warm snuggle

nivek 7d
I supped on the pages of a dictionary
ate words till I bled
put down some on paper
and waited behind the pages of death
I supped again and a rose grew from my bones
a Bumble Bee fed
we both put down our differences
and celebrated our mutual love of flowers.
