Starting over


Starting over
Re-becoming
Undercover
Mindscape combing

Then out there

Don't know where
or when or why
or how or what,
don't know when by
Don't know what's true
Have to trust what rings
Can't see through
dark envisionings

Starting over
Re-becoming
Undercover
Mindscape combing

Then out there

Shaky Egg






















Heartbeat in the curve:-
"It's different when it's happening to you"
Shadow hands conduct, disturb
Unavoidable endings personal too

If you look for the helpers, you'll know there is hope*
If you look for the helpers, you'll know there is hope

You would rage in the pain
Call into the dark and out what is true
Justice and death are not the same
It feels different when its happening to you

If you look for the helpers, you'll know there is hope
If you look for the helpers, you'll know there is hope




(* Fred Rogers)

Ring


still worn
wrapping itself
like a worm
digging claws
through skin
and bone
and hanging on
a dotted line
to the ever after

*


just a tiny touch
five minutes out
of consciousness
enough to spark a fire
connection with
the source of all
our instinct
and desire

Dad

 
While small bleeds seep inside your mind
Creeping stealth intent unkind
A thousand tears tear through my heart
My soul engaged and ripped apart

Your journey is not made alone
But isolation dark and grown
Knaws at your peace and stirs black fear
I am not able to stay near

They say this is not personal
They say we should be very proud 
They say to focus all our will
On appreciating time allowed

Sometimes you realise the game
Sometimes you shrug away the pain
Sometimes you want the clock to stop
Sometimes you smile and break me up

I want to celebrate your life
And tell you everything will be alright
I want to stroke away anxiety
And bring you restful, gentle days

They say this is not personal
They say we should be very proud 
They say to focus all our will
On appreciating time allowed
