Universal Love

We breathe as one
You and me
All pieces of the same soul.
What lessons we are here to learn
I’m yet to fathom.
The journey exciting
And faith, a must,
For we are all light
Which need a little refining.

Opaque Eyes

Eyes light but opaque
Face deceptively kind.
Until the smile drops
And then it stops your heart.
A strangling fear
leaves you gasping for air
At that glimpse of the dreaded dark.

Ego’s Veil

His touch makes my skin crawl
Yet he holds me enthralled.
His eyes wield a power
so enticing and dark,
A malevolence I sense
Through the charm I see,
A whirlpool of desire I resist
As I take flight to light.

A Soldier’s Dilemma

July 7, 2017 § Leave a comment

My might is right and mark true
The sword I wield, a life I take
I swell with pride, even as it devours my soul.
The wrath and loathe go hand in hand
Until the day I’m buried in sand.
Will death set me free, I wonder
And if so, did I set those others free too?

Essence: A soldier’s right to forgiveness

Master’s Brush Strokes

July 7, 2017 § Leave a comment

Oh! the Master’s brush strokes no one can match
The sun his brush he paints a sea in sky
The west is golden with shimmering scales                        
And east a tumultuous twilight with heavy clouds for waves.
Inbetween lies the calm ocean so tantalisingly close
Like you can drive into it from the flyover on the way home.

In pursuit of perfection

In pursuit of perfection
I forgot to smile
In pursuit of perfection
I forgot pleasure
In pursuit of perfection
I forgot to savour
In pursuit of perfection
I forgot I’m perfect

They came rolling in menacing and dark
Making the sun cower while they laughed.
They huffed and puffed and postured around
Until they reversed themselves and melted back down.
They can be a tease when they want to be
but if you can’t take a joke, sadly,
They may just let you be!
So laugh and frolic or wag your finger at them
But be sure to welcome them back again.
