The Thread

Lift of the ground, weightless ready to compete, lifeless cycle- I repeat. From, my emotions I never shy to retreat. Covey the light In a blinding truth, Ive got layers deep then, what’s at a hollow core. The drought. Throat is dry, and I’ve said it far too many times. It’s these moments that keep playing through some more vivid then others. The mind is a minefield of deceptions. Keep the joystick up push forward, and play the game. No more retreating. The fate is unknown, and the stakes are high. No bars, no limits. We’re going out on town tonight. The elixir drowns the lover quicker, In the lonely night. She could’ve seen the bright lights. Exploding on impact, cold reality. The facts catch you in the end. Play it cool, play it right. Set the Jets, take off-flying. Angels crying, no one to clean the street, spoiled meat, rots. Cold on the curbs of the divide. Failing systems of the inhuman pastimes, continued crimes. Shaman of the desert, lunar eclipse into the day I started to stop dreaming, start again and continue. Now it threw, and here I stand sitting through the wind of a organism that weaves through the thread of time. Well, dressed sharp for the final showdown, paint in the mask for the clown changes his face. The weight floats on back to ones shoulder. Until the next winds pass on through. I drift on through the infinite days of existence. Unraveled at the seems, watch as it’s all been laid out, once before. This Is one of many threads. 

ÜR THERE

Distant photograph, is it me?

I don’t know

Can this pain set me free?

I surrender

Back on track

How long will the road go…

Dancing in my head, come to the show

Filled rows

Dignity sold

The hungry search for gold

Vision of a man alone, and cold.

Does this shoe fit

Only you can take grip

Room 227

IV drip

We’re losing him

The lights fade

Take this story to the grave

I can remember times of happiness

Grazing the neighborhood lawns

Does this make me complete

Growing Into my feet

I could see the hills for miles

A foreign culture than, the roots I’ve come from.

Hippie, stoners, and freaks.

Sometimes the scene doesn’t make sense

Ripping In two, I’m torn.

Which way to go?

Have I been hear?

Stepping closer to the edge.

I break for the water below

Crashing into the tide

Goodbye, it’s been a heck of a ride.

Send my love to those who know the story.

My Sky

In the arms of the wind

Your presence floats on

Spirit once lived

Heart that was felt

Joy was given

We stand her today

Wishing we could re-live it

Years gone by now we see your message

Written in stars, scattered In clouds

Paved road to a higher ground

Whisking through passing winds

An energy glows from within

For the moment I’m with you again

I run In the fields

Search through the sky

Wonder through my days

Remembering where we’ve gone, we go on

We all go on

Through the wind.

LIP

Headlights crashing

Life lost, at what cost?

What’s it worth

When disaster strikes

Who’ll fight for the change

Influence an ecosystem of economics

Different world wide projects

New age culture concepts

False promises

Who takes the Initiative

Crosses the line for the better if the future

Preacher of the universe

Lover o the land

Travelers o the sand

Released from the tombs of ages

Turning history pages

What have we learned from time?

Does this all rhyme?

One.

Lockdown in solitary confinement

He finds fields of thoughts

Quiet place to roam

Down the road, been nearly years now, since you’ve been gone

Off the trail, making an Impact

Wide spread Impression

Next direction

Gallery is collecting

We don’t see the same

Not in it for fame, polarized and lame

Just playing the game

Piece to claim.

My addict runs farther then an isolated vein

Slowing my thoughts I train

Get in frame, and play my part.

Got the potion

Born to stir up, waking commotion

Let’s play to our best abilities.

Living in oneself, only tranquility.

Fallen, but not for long.

Pulling, sinking me slowly, instinctively grip for the rocks around me. I fall to the dirt, fallen once again to the lows of what I once threaded out of. Drowning In fear, I keep clear of the ones who take me to this place. Unconscious, slipping into the grey I know it’ll kill me if I stay. Treason to the top again, looking for the peak. I’ve slipped off, but not for long. You bring me here again to smile at my pain. I’ve got only light to gain, kick in you to the curb. None, of this I deserved. I know I’ll make my way back. I’ve taken this road before, numb to your lies, how the time truly flies. I’m claiming back my sanity. For you cannot control my destiny, I hold the key to my future. I take back gripping once more, pulling myself above muddy waters. When I get back to the top, I’ll laugh of your games that were never won. To far, advanced for your agony. I’m headed straight for the Stars, you’ll never know how the brightness feels, how the sunshine tastes. I sip from the glory cup raise it to the sky. Bless the day, curse your misery, I’m here to stay, no more time to play your wicked games. I take back what I build, protect what you attempted to destroy. Now it’s time to set out on the endless road of Infinite chaos, block out the black, only see the white. Time to make things right, get back out, and continue the fight.

I'm Home Now.

Disunity, ruined, wrecked purity, captive to your reeling rope, drawing me closer, I reveal the mask of an imposter, fraud, I shed the skin, leave behind layers of the past, drunken, plunged to the depth of the elixir, substance of quick fixers, I look to change direction, I may never know till the next reflection, modular console, needs rewiring.

Drowning, swirling chaos I’ve lost sense of reality, but it’s too late, make the bed of fate, as I know my due date. I’m going up the mountainside, one way ticket, climb to the clouds, wonder off with the wind, swimming, I slowly sink to the oceans bottom, collapses, and falls. Accepting, all the failures, imperfections, lack of strength. I’ve lost a fight, drifting off into the night, I will wake as a star in the dim light sky, bark out to the ones I used to know, let them know I’ve past, my best, fell off with the rest. I held my breath, and wrote it down, I will now be going on, to the other side, find a galaxy, and float on home. Crashing, cradling in the gravity of infinity, I’ve found my place of serenity. I’ve loved you all plenty, it was me who was empty. I’ll illuminate for you, when I’m home, back to my side of the moon. Threading, stitched from the loom, another lost in he gloomy grey skies, taken off whisper in the wind, so long dear friend, till we meet again.  

Non-Stop

Ferocious, so distinguished, postured man in the suit, hangs from the blinded noise, wife arrives to the scene, frightened, released of horror, dreams from the cellar, the apparent happy man, relieves internal pain, kicking the can, dropping to shroud pain, release of liveliness. A burial of a tainted mind, no reason, no explanation, a story untold, a misery that when’s bound to fold, a shivering cold, darkness flees as the next shines through pains of glass, a early grieving mass, bursting bells ring aloud, grey clouds move south, ascending into the gravitational pull, magnetic, majestic walk to the moon, cocktails at noon, a room of gloom. Coated in deep black apparel. Unveiling, of the plot has been written long before, into the sky you soar, may you forever snore in silent sleep. Into the next ride jubilation for the man freeing up, for the angelic white light, way out of sight, gates to the next chapter. Live, full of laughter, gracefully sail to the mystic ponds, euphoric in the taming of a wild soul, intergalactic star flickering in the dawn. Back to the one you belong, relish in limelight of gifted creation, allowance to mimic the process, lost deep pines of green surrounded the serenity chirping in the free forests of inhabited beings of the universe. Claim, your name, impact your shared experience of determination of finding answers from within, casting a captivating reflection in light years, of frames of a timeline peaks, and valleys. Liberate your spirit.

Pass On Through.

I’ve been waking my soul, doors still turn cold shuttingin my face, I’ve brought you pain, and disgrace, unacceptable for the last place finish, polish up, get it together, build the fortress, temple of sacred discovered mindful insight, of the world that your soul belongs to. Existence, glowing forth in the sunshine, luminous in daylight, Oceanside, upon staggered rocks, friends nearby gathered, all to join the climb, deep in the sands, toes blistering of miles walked, silent no one talked, I shall never be burnt from your rays, molded from sands of ancient desserts, hero of the waking Sun. I’ve lived all I could, I become one of none, son on the run, emptied gun, insufficient funds, I’m returning all that I put into, for I must pass through, continue on to the next dimension, awake the next version of what I once lived.

Hanging By The Thread.

Scars sinking, embedded, non refundable the pain never fades, this anger inside grows, tainted thoughts endless in flow, no place to go, I catch myself running into walls, narrowing empty halls, kick the dirt, keep it moving to much emptiness, I must find my way, get to the top, get to that place I was destined, I can’t run around pretending, one day, someday I will be filled…cleansed from these thoughts, I’m sure of this. I know I’ll make it, it’s the waiting, saturation in this muck, I feel stuck, ducking dodging bullets, and I’m caught in the crossfire of my own self. I think I need to run for sometime go stealth, create a place that I could spend my wealth, beaten down from the whipping belt, numb, on the run, from your gun…boom! I’m gone. Time to fly away, recipient to your potus spewing words! Enough, I flee to the free scenery! I’m a free man! Living from the land, wondered distant sands. Taking back what is mine, clear from the inside.

Regain Sight.

Gilded wings

Summer flings

What does night bring

Essence of symbols brought forth

The time of dawn draws near

The creative man removes his ears

Reality releases all deepened fears

No time to hold on the tears

You’ve fallen victim to the night

Get a grip

Hold your tool

Remove your hearing

Push forward with sight

Get a glance

You might just see her lifting still

Come along for the midnight hour thrill

Ignite your burning passion

Light the skies

Let your eyes wonder through the valleys

Arrival To Freedom.

Rising, riding out into tempered waves, pushing against the stones, drifted to nearby shores, dropped, tripped into doors, shifted reality, calm pressure, gilded, guided edged wings open in free winds, a new road to begin, another chance of freedom, embark on a new set out journey, kissing blarney stones, reversion of happiness, re collect all the data, analyze, create a better odd future. Spark of acceleration, pace to the sandy finish line, moment of dry living, a chance worth giving, keep sane, take a step back from what became, take memories to regain, back into focus, re gain frame. Rolling tides, gallant seas of green blue, as a large grew, branch by branch, a climb to the top, overview of what lies above, perspective from bird’s eye view, up here in my tree, the only place to write, what lies ahead, I’m moving up stairs, taking the staircase to the attic. Wonder the labyrinth library of illustrated words, across worn pages. A vivid recollection of a time, inside the walls of imagination. Goodnight Stars, hello moon, mellow cool jewel June, dream't a moment of noon, remembrance of warm fuzzy dayz, a walked grassy Cove, along ocean grove, sea of love, sunset shoreline, mystic heated pool of the next direction. Freedoms playground, wonderful West, nest of the unique, universe of mislead, pumping barrels of ignited, eminent future of dived pitiful inequality, rally for Freedom. Hawk’s cry, unlock the door to the angel’s skies. Ride out the rough ride, tempered tide, I’ve given all the remains from the inside. Take into, consideration, for this is all the remains, from a withered tree, preserved from radiant seas, in the limelight I am me. Western Hall, corridors of Freedom, I have arrived.  

Floating.

“I’m floating, sailing away, a white dove in a silhouette of gray.”

Red Wine.

A night, shimmering light, endless darkness, aged old wine, glaring eyes, shinning bottle, pour another glass, a drink not served in a flask, dawn of the night, fermented over time, pour the red divine elixir, the night time fixer, a shade of white, deepened reds, a glass before the head hits bed, Pinot Noir, emptied bedside, a bottle of shared time spent, with good company. Wine, the night cap to night full of created forever lasting aging memories.

The Road Ahead.

Brushing along the meadows

The felt like leafs tingling through damp palms

Skipping beat

Tireless feet

In stride

Off with the scampering wind

Thought of

Recollection of time well spent

Into the night

A feverous fight with sleep

Above the clouds I hold

Taking a road narrow, and bold

I was left out in the cold

Made my way to the warmth

Found my way back from steep valleys

I’m climbing

Climbing back

Moving forward

Taken in the surrounding silence

Remnant of the moment

Fearless survivor

Playing a deck full of joker’s

Handful of soil

Risen from dirt

Grown to a beautiful tree

In this life

I am free

I know what can be

Sight as far as the eye could see

I know the real me

Taken the mile

Someday I’ll be another file

John Doe

Some have names

So played the game

Others never had or took a chance for change

Rearrange thoughts

It’s not something taught

Not bought

It’s through living

Inspired by giving

For the only thing taken

Was the road ahead

I’ll share my bread

Go ahead!

Make your bed

Take back your head

Lay it all out there

Go get it!

Rise from the rebirth

Success is the thirst

I’ve seen the mission since birth.

Chess Game.

Painted illusions

Fallen trap

To your serpent slithering words

Dangling, dancing swords

Red spills to the floor

Agony of reality

Collapsing thoughts

Succession of memories

Trotting timeline

Blistering limelight

Pressure cooker

Make your move

Take a poke

One voice to be spoke

Ending in silence

Last resort to the violence

Crumbling empire of dirt

Tapered, well-worn tee shirt

A gamble with fate

A date to end

Beginning to close out

Reflecting steel

It’s your lies I repeal

Aim to kill

For I’m the one who couldn’t feel

Robber of the grave

No more games

Break these chains

Onwards we go

Puncturing, pushing you back out of my thoughts

It’s for freedom we fought

Alone I sought

Your faithless actions got you caught

I’m goon on

On to the next level

Today I bleed out

Leaving you behind

A trail

A mess

An illusion of my timeline

In the end I know it’ll be fine

Awaken, to the realization

That you are no longer part

I passed your labyrinth walls of the Asylum

I move on

Take freedom back

It’s all mine

I’m a worry free man

I’ve written the plan

Walked a dust, sandy mile

For the life I compiled

I’ll stick around

Check mate!

Egypt Calls To My Eye.

Desolate eyes, a drooping face

No place in this space

Another misfiled case

The arms of liberty embraced

For all injustice

Relentless at pushing forward

Aiming for a new found truth

On last call inside a roadside phone booth

As I recall you were apart of my youth

It was a tall glass that helped smooth

Dancing groove

What’ve I got to lose

I was meant to break the rules

Living by no structure

It’s the explosion, erupting a flow of magma

Hot ash rises in the mist of awaking

Glowing lava

Pouring down

Avalanching to the foot heels

Scratching away at walls

Tearing up crumbling infrastructure

It’s a cycle endlessly spinning

None have dated it’s beginning

A acoustic bell ringing off

Loud out of the steeple

Village gathered people

Citizens of the misinformed

It’s a life appeal

In the old papers I choose to repeal

It’s my life I feel

I should be at liberty to choose, freely

Who makes it to the higher elect chair

It’s no longer there

I’ve torn down your lies

Burnt your house of greed

Given all your dollars to feed the need

I’ve come from a different breed

The working, spirit, free, being

It’s time, the hour has struck

I’m your mud I’m no longer stuck

Thundering, crashing I’ve found the sign

Taken the mountainside for a climb

Seen the elements in full swing

Sparkling diamond along the rugged, narrow Spring

Numb to your sting

Prepared, loaded, ready for action.

Take Back Liberty.

Desolate eyes, a drooping face

No place in this space

Another misfiled case

The arms of liberty embraced

For all injustice

Relentless at pushing forward

Aiming for a new found truth

On last call inside a roadside phone booth

As I recall you were apart of my youth

It was a tall glass that helped smooth

Dancing groove

What’ve I got to lose

I was meant to break the rules

Living by no structure

It’s the explosion, erupting a flow of magma

Hot ash rises in the mist of awaking

Glowing lava

Pouring down

Avalanching to the foot heels

Scratching away at walls

Tearing up crumbling infrastructure

It’s a cycle endlessly spinning

None have dated it’s beginning

A acoustic bell ringing off

Loud out of the steeple

Village gathered people

Citizens of the misinformed

It’s a life appeal

In the old papers I choose to repeal

It’s my life I feel

I should be at liberty to choose, freely

Who makes it to the higher elect chair

It’s no longer there

I’ve torn down your lies

Burnt your house of greed

Given all your dollars to feed the need

I’ve come from a different breed

The working, spirit, free, being

It’s time, the hour has struck

I’m your mud I’m no longer stuck

Thundering, crashing I’ve found the sign

Taken the mountainside for a climb

Seen the elements in full swing

Sparkling diamond along the rugged               narrow Spring

Numb to your sting

Prepared, loaded, ready for action.

Stay Course.

Make moves, keep pushing forward, take the leap of faith, show with beaming sunlight, a glimpse of hope, follow your road, take control, fulfill what you set out to accomplish. It's your time. To reach new heights, more flights, a rebirth of vision. Sight, so clear, no fear, no more tears, it's been set clear, time to write the next beginning. Let it unravel the way it was intended.

Light Your Stage.

Kick out a leg for the rhythm

Strut to the beating drum

What has this night become

Somber song rings out

Lights glaring onto a well light stage

The voice break,  the cage unleashing a roar

Glorified in expression

Spinning direction

Then back to the audience again

Tranced, by the bending strings

Magnetic dance floor, keeps me sliding

Along the trot

I regroup for a collection of fiery moves

Swing around the room

Putting it all out

Tumultuous, succession, of instrumentals in chorus

I found a inspirational voice

Calling me to become one with the night

Take a moment

Regain sight

Don’t forget the fight

Climb to your destiny

Fulfill your soul tonight

Leave it all out on the electric floor

Keep a score

Tally the win

Time to relish in divine music

Play your anthem

Let your stage be light

Dance to your best

Keep your hips loose, and swift at the feet.

There’s no time other, than right now.
