“THE ANIMAL INSIDE ME”

THE UNPREDICTABLE

ophthalmic_suffering_by_jackan-d4t5myw.png

Overcome by the rising tide: HATE,

and sucked under by undertow: FEAR,

I caress the animal inside me who bears

my name on its tongue and devours me

from the inside out.

But I know the beast dwells

in the halls of my soul is me

so I find some comfort, no strangers…

Somebody saves me!

A heroic deliverance from blackened self

so the wayfarer might rest his feet.

He’ll need to run…

For somewhere in my darkest inner-sanctity

waits a monster.

My name shaved into his hairy back.

He likes it here and wants to stay!

My soul begins to fly

like the dove from the ark, like the thunder from sky.

And soars away, far from home

on the wings of angels, from hate and fear!! …

“RAVING VOICE”

THE UNPREDICTABLE

Oh, the night is dark with its long and empty roads.

And this life of mine is stranded in its colds.

And swaying in a wind whose raving voice is unkind.

Like the thoughts of your goodbye that howling in my mind.

The moon barley glows behind the clouds in the skies.

my dreams barely glow behind the tears in my eyes.

Her light is shining dim blue and pale.

A blur in this world without you, they fail.

And oh, how many times didn’t I call your sweet name!

“Don’t despair” you said, “it is all a silly game.”

The trees are whining along the wind;

An end to their battle that is their plea.

My heart pleading for the day to begin,

In a new world where it can be free.

“HEAVEN’S TIDE”

Please visit the original site. The photos will not appear in the reblogged post.

THE UNPREDICTABLE

50616

When tears well up behind one’s eyes,

And wrenching sobs turn into sighs.

When longing bids to overtake-

One’s spirit, and to rake;

The very soul that lives within,

There comes the thought of what has been.

The love that was, that is, that will-

Stay with one now, till all is still.

And then, on high, one’s soul will ride-

Upon a cloud in heaven’s tide.

One doubts there is a sweeter thought-

Than joining thus which God hath wrought!! …

THE UNPREDICTABLE

My love, I have come to see… it is really true, your love for me and my love for you.

Oh, if I could only describe it in more words.

Oh, yes… now I can see, as I am with you, the waves are gently caressing me… oh…

so softly and gently as you show your love for me.

As your gentle softness moves about me, another wave a little more

bold, but yet so loving wrapping itself around me. But then…

Another breaks with a greater force… but still with so much love.

And then… without any warning a violent wave breaks and

wraps me completely and takes me with it to the highest

possible peak of total oneness and such complete love and then…

I know at once… the wave… the sea… and I are…

… One … No Doubts …

And then

a complete feeling of total…

“THE LONG PATH”

THE UNPREDICTABLE

FOR YOU MOM…

woman-alone

HOW COULD I HAVE WAITED SO LONG?

It wasn’t that I travelled the wrong path… just the long path home.

You knew not of me, nor do I of you,

Yet in my heart I felt there was two.

… (Though an image of only one.)

From another time and another place,

By different lands our lives were shaped.

External forces and unforeseen influences,

Should have resulted in many a difference.

… (But we seem so much alike.)

I often wonder of what could have been, would have been,

Had our lives turned on the axis from what is now, to what was then.

Or, if the helical spiral had twisted awry in the middle;

There may indeed have been a different ending.

… (I might have never left you!)

For decades of longing for a lost mother;

And with all the memories, then how could I…

FourHands6x6051513

If you touch me

… I might die.

Deny me—- take my life…

I can already feel my breath runs away.

Hands are two inches from my personal space

… Close enough to echo.

… close enough to make me worry!

Heat against the hairs on my skin.

Electricity again…

And more about to begin…

If you touch me

… I might die.

Kill me—– Save my life!! …

If my hands could know the warp and weft– of all there is to touch,

If my voice knew all the ranges– of verse and song and such,

If my eyes could see all the beauty– without a moron’s stare,

If I only knew the words to write– exactly what was there,

If my mind could fully comprehend — all there is to learn;

Then I would take a smiling step– toward the waiting urn!! …
