I thought with life upon a wire,
I could aim a little higher.
Force me behind a cage
For I should never sway
With you in arms, ever again.
I am without control,
Just the beast with nothing to hold
But his own entrails,
His form that has scarred the landscape
By simply being here.
Please let me lay alone
In the open dark
To see the day put to death,
To see life raised to breath
Without my existence on its open wings.
A heart, below,
A mind, above.
I wired you with the entanglement of your veins,
I caged myself in the open air,
While feeling what shame beauty felt
Knowing that I held nothing but my insanity.
Poem – “Worthy is your Presence” – Romance – 4/8/2020
Only when I weep
Do I feel tears that truly stick
To cheeks made of the same pallidity
As the stones above your grave.
Cry more, will I?
To the open winds, that scream back the same verse
I jot down, upon paper of some pale ocean
That feels my fallen tears.
I have loved with a heart that would not part
The red sea of my clouded storm.
Above and beyond the rainbow
That only sheens when you come to scream.
Scream with me, all words made from the coals
That cover me, in my frailty.
Give me the same death, the same peace
You have used, to laugh your way away from me.
Poem – “A Farewell to my Idle Self” – Life – 4/7/2020
I cast aside
Where I have walked,
Where the priests once talked,
When they had looked over my shoulder,
At the failure surrounding me.
My lonely road,
Has been a cold one.
I say farewell,
To a man who stood frozen
By a stream
Made from his own tears.
I whisper goodbye
To the Hell I have forged from lies.
Because, here I am,
Ready to become one who can.
Life stands aside
For the brave and the bold
Who only walk onwards
Towards Death that takes hold.
Our lives are shelved upon mystery,
A kiss is sometimes what we want,
When all the tears have been dried
To becoming a desert.
A Quote of Wisdom – “A Translation of a Simple Perspective” – 4/5/2020
“Upon many occasions, I have observed that a perspective only ever holds a candle to itself. Of course, this is true, when we consider what a perspective is. But I believe a perspective can be taken seriously, almost as if it were a fact. At what point does a mere ‘perspective’ become proven to be a fact? This is what I aim to find out. When did the person who invented the numerical and digits turn their meager ‘perspective’ into something inarguable? To say of the perspective or the opinion, that it is only the perspective or the opinion, seems like a blow to intellectualism. We will say that one is ‘forcing’ their opinions or their ways upon another, but then again, a child will say the same when he or she believes they don’t need to attend school. Life is about open-mindedness, and the flexibility of intellect makes a person thrive, when alive. Nothing else matters, but the person to learn, and to gather what one can know from listening to others. Therefore, a perspective is not just a perspective, but an outlook upon reality.”
A Quote of Wisdom – “To Face Reality…” – 4/4/2020
“To face reality seems to be the singular way to approach a progressive nature. And yet, all we do is learn, and never solve. We never extinguish the problem at its source, though will continue to dissect and dissect. We never yearn to see the problem vanish, so long as there is something to plunder from it. Reality relates to life, while both reality and life relates to flesh. We are manipulators, at that point. By continually rearranging and dissecting, we do not destroy what has been continually killing.
Perhaps this is not logic. Perhaps science has been misleading, in some sense. Perhaps the most logical of things is to see the problem before it begins, and then, never allow it to occur. Perhaps the most logical of all things lies upon prevention. For didn’t Oppenheimer say that genius sees the answer before the question?
If genius sees the answer before the question, then one can prevent a disaster from first arising. One can prevent mass destruction. One can prevent the tinkering with objects not meant for human hands.
Prevention is the cure, when we consider both responsibility and the love of life, enough to protect it from further trauma.”
