The Dawning


A feeling rising –
Like the smoke filled lungs of my 14 year-old self.
A feeling I thought was lost.
A nostalgic yearning of energetic bliss –
Like the sweetness of Love’s first kiss
Washing over my body –
Like the ocean kissing the sand.
Like the sunset kissing the horizon.
Engulfed within the flames of desire.

A lifetime seems to have past since then-
Like I have died every day,
And I had been reborn every night.
A bleeding heart –
Only knowing the blade of sorrow
Like the crimson tears of the Virgin.
An existence in the shadows –
Fading into the darkness, losing ground –
Like the sinking hole of my heart.
My Soul shattering –
Like the fragmented prism of twilight.
Into the night –
Enveloped by the umbra of a broken heart.

A single moment –
Reseting time –
Like an antiquated program –
An execution of my sorrow.
The sweet aroma of bliss is
Like the Universe rising up in you –
Like the first breath of life.
The heartbeat of my Soul –
Resurrecting –
Like the burning rays of daylight’s first blush.

The Beginning of the End

Your energy is my medicine,
As it fills my heart and my head –
Breathing fast,
Heart racing,
I will always remember what you said.

I feel you come near –
Embracing my soul my Dear.
Wrapped arms, wrapped lips
Into oblivion our toes dip.

I feel you seeping into my veins,
Our heart’s set off
As we take the reins.
Floating into oblivion –
The world crumbles and laments.
As we rise into the heavens –
Life as we know it ends.

Birthing our destiny.

As One

There was a world
In which we existed.
Together, as one
Like the River of Amazon.
We traveled down,
The path of the Shaman.

In our past,
Graceful like the flames.
Together, as one
Like the Fire dance,
Ecstatic motion,
Drums, and bodies of emotion.
Dancing like the fire,
Magic from the heavens.

Shaman of the people,
Together, as one.
Healers of our tribe.
Medicine of our earth.
Magic of our ancestors.
Conduits of energy,
Keepers of our power.

This life has passed,
It still runs through our veins.
Together, as one
Forever etched in time,
The magic remains.
Our souls entwined,
Within the constructs
Of time.

Unfinished Business

There is a part of me
That loves so deeply,
Longing for the stranger
That sets my soul on fire.
Though these dreams
Go unrealized,
My feelings can’t change.

There are
No voids to fill,
Just soul deep
Unfinished business.
We gravitate,
Like magnets.

I love you.
I hate that I love you.
You don’t pay mind
To how I feel.
You know how I feel,
You see how I feel,
You hear how I feel.
Destiny is

I try not to think of you.
I try not to feel you.
I try not to hear you.

Maddening telepathy
Maddening connection
Won’t subside
Sleepless nights
Opposite timezones
I’m awake
You’re awake
Energy connect
Won’t subside.

Answers is all I need,
Recognition is all I need,
Or Closure is what I need.
What do you want?
You know what I want.
No more silence.
