Broken Light

I lied.

I cheated.

I borrowed.

I stole.

I was perverse

in thought and action.

I fucked.

 

I ran naked through

the woods

screaming

Jehovah’s name.

 

I lost myself in

so many thoughts,

people, and delusions

of grandeur.

 

And now I’m here.

 

I have no dreams left.

I have cracked open

to my brokenness,

living in my core.

That place that is unredeemable

except

in the living it as such.

 

In being what I am

freshness cleanses

the wound

so that its revealed to be

my destiny,

giving birth

to this broken light.

 

I stumble down

these halls

banging against

my self-inflicted walls

pretending I’m great

or straight or narrow

when I’m not.

 

I’m nothing of the sort.

I’m wicked game.

A fuselage

ready to explode

rocketing into orbit

around the sun.

and it takes just one moment to

bring me there,

 

That place between

you and I

that hurts,

that groans,

that’s murky

and disgusting.

 

none of it is far from here,

if you but scratch the surface

of this moment.

That is my gift.

As I feel

into my body

Desire blooms

for her

to be

beside me

and for Her/She

to live through me.

Waves of fear

and torment

show themselves

as the last vestiges

of the wraps

that I placed

upon myself

cloaking

my desire for union

in all, with all form.

 

As I drip

and drop deeper

into my body

of Desire

i hear her call,

the call of living

and singing

the Mystery of my life.

This goodbye.

She gives me the love

of the mother,

the lover,

and the Beloved

all in one.

Something no one has ever

done.

I want her to shine

in all of her glory

til the end of her

magnificent story.

I hear her spirit

asking me to let her go

so she can enter

her next opportune window.

The child in me cries,

not wanting to say

anymore goodbye’s.

The man in me feels

it all, that which dies.

The inner teen yells at God,

he’s crossed

fuming about

all that’s been lost.

There’s a peace

that slithers

its way up

through all that’s going on

between

me and you.

I’m greatful

I’ve known you

and I will continue 2

for what I’ve realized

in out hearts’ sanctuary.

I don’t fully understand

why this must go.

I only know or hope,

that in time

that too will grow.

I suffer the loss

of unfulfilled dreams,

many on Life’s colorful stages

that had you and I’s

names etched

on its pages.

I give my heartache

and my belly’s moan

and the tears of todays

and tomorrow’s full moon,

to that sacred place

between you and I.

that place that still

lives in the eternal

song of Gods’ will.

Living in this world

and unfolding in new ways

brings the current

up against my face

when I see

what I’ve  come to distaste

in the wrinkled skin face

of another

judging me from within

I cannot declare

what I have found

to be everywhere

but in this little speck

of my world

I see it black and white

Your decision to cast

a vote

that lies

and lingers past

the ugly places

of our unfamiliarity

What comes about

when I speak the

vulnerable route

is that love

seems indifferent

or incoherent

to but a select few

Love does not care for

your petty thoughts

nor does it seek

to take us on

vacations

away from the heart

but yearns to bring us home

to ourselves

amidst a world

that has no idea

what that is.

A fools remorse into love

Let me love

the pain away

like swaddled blankets

give comfort

to the naked child

of our pasts

Let me love

the pain away

so as the secrets

come to light,

the restlessness

in keeping them,

gives way

to peaceful serenity.

Let me love

the pain away

not to take away

something from you

because you can’t handle it

but because

you deserve to know

that I love you

(as you are in it)

Let me love

the pain away

that I caused you

from my brash

words and actions

insensitive to your worth

in those moments

to be seen and felt

in your

sacred need.

Let me love

the pain away

so that freshness

that comes

after deep tears

can be looked through

like a clean windshield

after a gentle rain

with new vistas

being traveled towards

together.

Let me love

the pain away

so that you speak

with more certainty

that I hold you

in my heart

trusting that you

are my beloved

the one I hold

most dear,

precious

as the light

that caresses

every thing

in its path

during that special

hour of sundown.

Let me love

the pain away

so that

Christmas comes

in your heart again

happily receiving the presents

that we get each day

in loving

and living together.

Repose of the Lily

fragrant moon
oe’r yonder pose
speaks to me
as the lily grows

essence sings
its days new song
listening closely
to where we most belong

tender moments
rise in joy
find the delight
in what’s employed

unfrozen hearts strings
plucked at once,
forgiven moments
giving their thrust

Jesters fingering
the witness plow
given to the oven
of the Sacred Cow.

Take some time to really watch, feel, and listen deeply to this series of video’s by Andrew Harvey (mystic, poet, author). I think Andrew Harvey is speaking to something so central and so important to what is occuring right now in our planet and in our hearts that we must listen. He speaks in a way that is honorable and true, with real steps you can take, feeling the pain of the whole gestalt we are in and the action that one can take without going into despair. Let me know what you take from it.
