I feel a unique sensation,
When the first hello,
Feels like the thousandth time,
How I look into someone’s eyes,
And know they’re meant to be mine,
Maybe as a friend,
Or a lover,
But I can tell,
By the way their eyes hover,
Closing in on me,
Ready for me to discover,
The life I knew before,
Has become a closed door,
Your hand in mine,
Feels like it never left,
My heart is filled with unrest,
Until we meet again,
And you realize,
That I’ve always,
Known you.

Neither the quiet comforts of your home
Nor the wonders of the great unknown
Will satisfy your thirst to know
The wandering rest within your bones

In one way or another
How the shoe turns and Crow flies
Untill no longer bound
Homeward
We are all alone
Nothing is ever perfect. Nothing really lasts. At present.

Get all you wish for and be disappointed.

Read with a smile and be prepared for the truth of this life.

Blah blah.

It creeps in, when it wants,
my soul, it taunts
the push and pull of despair,
so surreal, tugging me to kneel in prayer,
long enough to catch my breath,
oh but it is life and death...
time for some yoga!
Leavin' aint always gone
Because your soul cries out in confusion
Cries out in anger's anger
Cries out in protest

Leavin' ain't always gone
It's just harder to seek reason
Harder to make insanity sane
Harder to make the wrong right

Leavin' ain't always gone
Because the loss of life opens pain
Opens the past anxiety
Opens healed over wounds

Leavin' ain't always gone
Just finding a new resonance
Finding a new resistance
Finding its strength in numbers

Cause leavin' ain't always gone
When it's buried

fireball burst
searing
probity

clenched coil
bleeds purple
rabid rage

fists itch
sue for
strike

temple warden
glares strained
calls culled

rampant riot
bristles broken
fervid

all exits
blocked tight
stifled screams

fade as winds
of sense
take command
the interplay of internal forces as one grapples with strong emotions like rage

My love in a cup of death,
Can't find any rest from what's left of the day,
Only four minutes for the night,
One more ****** 'til I disappear,
A sea as profound and cruel,
Deeply lost, abstract,
So suddent, asphyxiating,
I cannot breathe by myself,
I need another birth,
One that doesn't leave me when I die alone.

Lakshmi sheer

cacophony in  
world today

a chilling light seeps in
as my restful night
turns gnarled teeth on me.
and in my questioning state,
I dare not leave stones unturned.

I pick, I poke, I tear
under the surface of the sun,
until I not only know the answers,
but hate myself for them.

selling my soul to the devil
may be my only chance of survival.

What is this inside of me?
Twisting and Turning in my chest,
Invisible bile rising in my throat.
This darkness,
Thrashing about in my being
Threatening to burst
And infect every cell.

This unrest is going to be the end of me.
No peace,
No rest,
Blood rushing through my veins
My body urging me, DO SOMETHING.
But my mind unaware of a solution.

I am in turmoil, agony,
Waiting for it to end.
This storm rages inside of me.

And all I can do is pray
That the darkness will not win.
From a particularly unsettling kind of day.

SYRIA HAS CHEMICAL WEAPONS
RUSSIA HAS HACKING BEAT
NORTH KOREA WITH GUIDED MISSILES
AND PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH HIS TWEETS


THERE IS WAR ALL AROUND US
UNREST ACROSS THE GLOBE
U.K. NOW HAS BREXIT UNLEASHED
AND HARRY HAS A BETROTHED


WHAT IS A BOY TO DO
WHEN OUR WORLD IS IN A MESS
JUST HAVE SOME CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM
AND PUT IT ALL TO REST
OUR WORLD IS IN TURMOIL WAR EVER WHERE AND COUNTRIES AT EACH OTHERS THROATS LETS JUST CHILL.
