I Reject Most Of Society’s Notions

people-2604267_1920

I reject most of society’s notions
With no desire to live by the sword
I feel no need to prove myself
I shall put eternal trust in my Lord

I follow my own path these days
Oscar Wilde said I could only be me
A world of distractions & hate
But, only through love can we be free

Scratching Your Soul Upon The Page

Scratching your soul upon the page
Following the seams beyond the thread
I don’t have the caffeinated gumption
So I’ll have to return to bed instead

Wandering through woven stories in my mind
Nib to paper is the only way I can meditate
Urgency of thought keeps me from sleep
Back to brewing; morning’s way to self-medicate

Faith In A Baby Child

adult-1869624

I put my faith in a baby child
& He will lead me
I will follow in His path
Being shown what I need to see
I give Him my whole life
I will seek His truth
In my soul He does dwell
Guiding me through days of youth
His love will lift me up
Through the life He gave
I have faith in my Lord
& I know that i am saved

The Carcasses Of Inspiration

The carcasses of inspiration
Wine glasses with Burgundy residue
Speaking to late nights & early mornings
Scribbles in the margin on the follow through
Feeling parched as I wake
Noticing your lipstick stains
Upon the rim of the glass
Reminding me of the dreams that remain
Bleary eyed, drinking the coffee grounds
Searching for a fate within the dregs
Fumbling over these typewriter keys
Lightheaded when I see your naked legs
Your smile is a distraction
But you pop a button & then one more
I’m at your complete mercy
Once the nightgown hits the floor

Following The Rabbit Hole

Following the rabbit hole

Keep pulling the thread of thought

Beautiful scarves from the pocket

But magic’s just a detail of the plot

Delving into unconscious fragments

Mental decorations littered from dreams

Weaving our energies coherently

Knowing the secret lies within the seams
