I must know the ocean
With every breath I breathe
Not just tender sunsets
But the roaring seas
I must go so deep
Almost scared to find what I need
All those mighty waves
Crashing over me

It’s not enough
To sit on my balcony
If I know I could travel where
The ocean is all I see
I’ll leave the land I came from
To follow where she leads
‘cos she met my every question
And that cry for destiny

You wouldn’t call me a fool
If you’d seen what I see
When I look at the ocean
I know she’s there for me
Her steady, constant waves
Never cease to instruct me
As she leads, I will follow
All the way to the deep

You may not always
Understand the voice
Of your soul
As it may be
To the narrative
In your mind
But if you give
Yourself enough
Time to dive
Deeper in the
Well of your
Own innate wisdom
You will find
That the results
Of travelling the
Feeling that rises
From deep within
Your heart
Will always bestow
Into your life
A series of
Small delightful

There is a journey
that doesn’t need spoken words
It is an inward labyrinth,
a retreat in your private sanctuary
It starts with a call
A dance of contrasts
Between the ego
and its soul
It delves in the clandestine
Of your consciousness
Unearthing inklings of insights
An acuity learned through lifetimes
Through discernment and openness
You find elation
As you merge deeper
With the purpose that is you
The spark in which
You were lit
And caught ablaze
To claim your destiny

What am I doing?
What's going on right now?

My Emotions: You wouldn't know, you haven't been listening to us or even conscious of the grand scheme

You've been too busy,  
spoke my pain
You've been absent minded,
spoke my soul
You've been detached
spoke my spirit

You've been distant
spoke my heart

Blindsided by the truth I've constinuosly allowed to accumulate, I open up again

To myself

Only she has the tools to fix me
Only she has the capacity to piece me back together and love me deeper than I could fathom

I don't know why we look for that "special someone" to do it for us
You are intrinsically your deepest love. Love  the way you want to be loved.

Doodles have more meaning ramblings
                                    than any art...

For they are the form
            of an active unbiased  mind.

               of those misshapen
                  misunderstood ramblings.

Till you step back
                          and delve deeper
and see the reality of originality
Poetic T Jul 3
Mindful of others, but always deeper in thought.
You call it the folly of an inquiring mind,

Concern some may say diving to deeply
unsure of where this may take me.
Regarding the complexity of a frame.
I just see more than those who
open a door, and only see the other side.
So if the the hinges hold it what was behind.
Is it wrong to have an interest in more
than what others see as normal without
yearnings to find out what was, what's more.

Where I wished to delve deeper was only
an excuse for others to want it to wither.
never would I intrude, but my searching
eventually causes some unintended pain.
So I relent, I'm curious of the outcome some say.

The water goes above my head
Feels like i haven't left my bed
Is this what it feels like?
I'm drowning, not sure how long i can fight
I'm sinking deeper and deeper
The bottom seems too be getting even steeper
So ill hold my breathe
Till i drown to my death.

The illusion is shifting again
The columns melting stone to blurred sand
Kiss the River bed, saturated nutrient flow
Estuary, opposites mixing like friends

Meeting our ends, meeting our ends
The Compost heap rots and withers,
In preparation to add to the cycle again
The moment is fleeting
Gather, pull the light close to your Chin
Hold it on the sides of its head
And gaze, gaze deeper and deeper again
Poetic T Apr 25
I'm the shadow,

                               what can I see

within the darkness...
