Claustrophobic in this vessel
I'm floating on a sea of waves
that never settle,
but slam upon my
Stimulating my pools to never close,
but stare into the vastness
of unfulfilled gazes.
The charcoal stain within the white cleaner
than the pool it resides within.
I feel like I'm a victim of non-consensual birth,
never wanting to be in this void less
Could I delete this construct, make it static.
Yes, but my breath is continual,
and my morality keeps me tied to this frame.
I'll have to live, even though i didn't
agree to this sting tying me to this existence.
We're the pools
I swam in
if your eyes are no ocean
why do they look blue
and i'm willing to dive in
to grasp what's inside you
a treasure buried in your mind;
ten thousand emerald pools
hundreds of castles standing tall
a kingdom in your soul
i'll drown if i have to
to sink into your heart
if i die then i'll tell you
dying's never been more fun
all i need is you, you're all i need to breathe / 2
I couldn't venture upon the words that
flowed from your voice...
dancing on every pebble.
But sometimes we miss-stepped,
getting sullen in the
waters that we found ourselves,
delving in deeper than
You & I where,
me and you where that
Drowning within the pools of our eyes..
We held on to another,
the love of each others vision.
And I drowned deeply within you..
knowing that Id be free on
the other side of your gazing eyes..
I’ve always had a fear of water that’s deep
I remember my fright in the city pool
how I made friends with the shallow end
how close to the sides I’d keep.
I still recall that curved stone edge
how my fingers held on and I felt a fool
being so scared when the other kids
would jump in the deep end with joy
how I felt like such a silly scardy boy
and I envied their abandon and grit
the big splash when their cannonball hit.
But it’s true my daddy was never there
to teach me to swim
to help when I came up coughing for air.
Oh man, how I could have used him
and his strong arms to hold me
and show me the breast stroke
slap my back when I choked.
Now I still thirst for a father
when I get afraid of the deep water.
The difference is now I’ve got a dad
who’s always there when I’m afraid or sad.
In fact I look forward to the dive
into the deep where I’m so alive
centered and at peace.
But I’m still learning to let go and release
the edge of that deep pool
and breathe in the depths… of spirit fuel.
Rain poured its *** off,
And see now: pools big and small;
More than can handle!
I am meditatively sitting at the edge
Of the Saturn rings
High in the sky, looking down
Into an Earth-pool of reflections
I can see it, concentric rings
Moving like shadowy things.
In that space between you and me
is a pain, like a sheet of glass
My stretches through and
Into the water of the pool
And as I pull out the watery rings
I feel alchemic longing swirling inside of me
To have and to hold you
To pour you inside me
A soul-jug and its chalice companion
Its in your face I see
But it's reflection only
Touch and you are gone in concentric rings
And I return to the edge of things.
Those who pass us on,
are but shallow pools of self-worth.
For when we look upon ourselves
we see a depth
that only gets deeper
the more we look into
the pools of our own perception.
I ask her if she saw your eyes
She said she did that they are the
“boy eyes” but tripled and then
says but “have you seen your own eyes”
I said I hadn’t so I ran to the mirror
to see and started crying
at the way my dark eyes are full of peace
(giant wet pools of love) melting against my skin
through my pores
all because of
He wasn't looking at my eyes ,
so I took his.
Pretty little pools...
marbles of sight.
I threw them in the trash,
his life dirt trodden looks...
