You have forgotten God,
but somehow somewhere deep within
                    still you know
you are His prophet.
spraying holy graffiti on the abandoned midnight walls
of the eternal buildings of the city,
up in smoke the dreams of your yesterdays,
crushing emptied beer cans against railroad tracks,
screaming as the whistle blows,
longing to be,
               longing to be…
just not quite so damn infinitesimal,
driven to insanity in the obscene love for now,
     until your mind collapses into castrophic silent reverie.

Now,
                            now,
                                                   now.
i love you,
     I love you,
           i love you,
you are the prophet,
o lovely singular soul of everything,
               you know what must be.

why have your eyes gone dark,
         why are your visions no more,
you long for the starry magnitude of infinity,
and yet can only make it to the door.
you search in the sounds of the night
in the threads of your carpet,
in the creaks in the walls,
in the hum of the air,
       in the sad blue jazz soul of the yellow-light sidewalks
that cry to the sky, “why this eternity,”
therein lies the mystery of everything,
you know it,
but where is it.
    o prophet, o soul,
why have your eyes gone dark?

you have had the answers from the beginning

I used to think dying wasn't fair
Now I'm happy it’s a slow death
I need to stick around a little more
I'm not gonna’ ask what for

I’m not ready for streets of gold
I don’t know how to live like that
Maybe it’s just my imagination
This world is only good for complainin’

God I’m outta’ control
God, are you outta’ control too?
Are you still throwin’ paint at us?
Are you still trying to create us?

It feels like some sort of made up game
I’m no tourist I don't care where I go
I just live here
I’m not very biblical
Just a part-time saint and a full-time criminal

I’ve been movin’ around
I’m not a part of anything
I just remember the people I met
And when it rains they still get wet

God I’m outta’ control
God, are you outta’ control too?
Are you still throwin’ paint at us?
Are you still trying to create us?

Kneeling at the foot of your cross
Before your presence I am at a loss
I seek your heart as you seek mine
I am bathed in your love divine
As I gaze upon your lovely face
I am drowned in the sea of your great grace
I look no further for you are here in this place
Lifting my heart and my hands to heaven so far above
I can feel the gentle power of your love
I'm asking please help me be quiet so I may hear and listen
Help me find the part of me that, so long, I've been missin'
Help me love you more and more
Remind me some things are worth fighting, even dying for
I am so weak Lord, I am so frail
But over sin and even death, still you prevail
Make my soul as a dove in flight
On the breeze of hope, the air of joy, and the winds of love alight
May your love be the song that I sing
And like a fire on the earth joy and peace I might bring
I yearn to know you more your heart your soul your mind
And I ask that I might know more in time

Riot 17h

The blue was taken
out of the birds in the park
and put into my heart
with a cold as deep as
my room in the winter
when we didn't pay the bill.

The blue forces memories  
of the behavioral hospital

The Spiderman bedding
over my father's house

My mother's face covered
in poorly wiped tears
from hours of me lying
unconscious in the hospital

as she prayed silently,
and I said in the darkness
of my own head
"God doesn't do anything for atheists."

Leonila 17h

Take Courage

Be still oh my soul
I know God is leading
Give me time to catch up
This flesh of mine is weak
But my spirit indeed is willing
To follow Him and find my way
Your Spirit Oh Lord speaks to me
It tells me, to take wings to flight
In me, lie the questions
Of my life, hidden deep down inside
In the dungeon oh my soul
Where my heart lies, caged
And captive, waiting to be set loosed
Like the eagle with his wings
Breaks through the exodus
Soaring and gliding to new heights
Your Spirit, Oh Lord speaks to me
It tells me, I have given you
every key to unlock the hidden
potentials and unwrap every free gift
Take courage my child and
fight the good fight of this race called life
Be obedient and listen to my voice
I will guide you to the path
That will lead you to everlasting
And eternal life
Take courage my child and know
I am with you always
Even until the end of time

Psalm 96:6 - Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

I think of the cliffs of Zion,
the Hoodoos of Bryce,
and the grandeur of
the Grand Canyon.

The splendor and majesty
I've seen on this earth
cannot compare to that
which is before you, O Lord.

I've seen your strength
on display in the power
you used to lift these,
like pillars, from the earth;

and I've seen the beauty
that is in your mind,
forming masterworks
from dust and stone.

What art in Heaven is unknown to the heathen?
Lest the scriptures write of adolescent teens.
For the scriptures build an ark and the arc
From which we must all be reborn in the barque.

With the strength of the carpenter’s lieutenants
The gallows outlast ten thousand tenants.
The faith in ones own wit is the noose indeed
As is the church’s wit when their sovereignty be decreed.

Is not this parchment made of sheepskins?
Like the fine carved furniture of the followers of Louie Quinze.
But of these carvings was once a beautiful tree.
Like the lamb – it was forced to its knee.

There a man placed upon their remains
Words and pictures of the self it proclaims.
But to God they are still a tree and a lamb
No need for the words or pictures he found.

Some think that they must sacrifice something or themselves in order to receive blessings. There is no need for any sacrifice at all. The blessings are always there. We just need to learn to recognize them.

He has scriptures in scribed all over his body.
Is he God's minion that's what you might think.
He walks to the beach, and fish jump to the land for his calmness to very.

He touches them, and they grow legs and feet.
Now, ill give you a letter to give to the worthiest its plains and sketches of the hoarding's.
365, is maybe the answer no that's diluting, what I have in mind is some what confusing.
It's to bribe the rays from the sunny place, and give wonder to the sky God.

His power's have no yield as he fixes all the yellowing leaves.
Doth we strive passed the space we are of here.
And see the season's of nebula some outer place.

Ask, and it shall be giveth to you my presences is here for your embrace.

God, power,

We'll fly to the tune
and dance on fresh graves

Play like frenzied baboons
in a natural display

Destroy cities and towns
like Gozdilla, King Kong

Wait for death to come round
and it shouldn't take long

Take away his sickle
remove his harp and/or lyre

Now he's in a pickle
we'll set him on fire

Wait for the Angels
they're bound to poke round

We'll gather wings and eat bagels
laughing, as now they're earthbound

The devil sends demons
he feels the time near

Revoking the summons
we'll steal all their gear

We've loosed all our passions
unchained at the feast

Taking crap not in fashion
from god(s) and/or beasts

Ever had one of those moments where ya just wanna tear everything down, and then, rip off it's head, and crap down it's neck?
I'm kinda there :D
