dreamer ghost

Cried for 10 years,
prayed for 10 years,
exhausting mortal allotment of tears.
Reverently letting go,
ephemeral hand of lost searching
soul;
this lifetime
destined to be a holy man.
Lotus and sterile
upon quivering cliffs,
scolded by the laughter
of river om,
peeling a snakeskin of smudge,
fingerprints of impostors
and false lovers
revealing nothing, save the storm.
Gales of scarlet turbulence,
stupid will, drowning
in torrential zen,
and deep within dark sheets
just beyond mortal infection,
yet close like lingering perfume,
modulating, noise and note,
virgin silhouette of inspiration –
the dreamer ghost


ghost

indulging the mischief
of a hoary ghost
pretending to be déjà vu


your mind

i tried to touch your mind,
whispering intuitions
as i unwrapped them,
chanting visions
of perfect children
with your face and mine.
i painted you
upon every thought,
and every wall,
but human distance is hell.
it’s wearing me thin,
and your moths are forgetting the poems,
distracted by tambourines
and the flamenco at night.
i stoke the bonfire every day.
it has consumed everything,
more than i own.
can you feel the warmth?
can you see the glow?
but now, love, my body cries
to be fed,
to be released,
to transcend, and
my angels have flown
to higher ground;
said i was a ghost
wandering in violets
searching for your body –
following the butterfly
of inspiration.


run 2 you

run into ether,
unfettered contour of mind –
love’s etheral axis sphere,
our sanctuary – warm fertile embrace,
quivering flame the pulse of heart
where thought beams the radiance of light
melting dark worlds that fade
to pitch and ghost of time

run through datura and shadow of lilth,
and vapor faces that impersonate to haunt
run blindly if must be your trust
with open arms,
for with open arms, i cry diamonds –
sacred tears of angel light

adorn the clinging silks of desire
gentle moonbath of honey glaze
reach my love, reach
i beg this mortal’s hand to touch
taste this kiss, deeply, truely
realize the presence of healing grace –
love’s nude perfection sings

open your eyes,
your vision portrays you adorned and bare
open your eyes,
a crown of violets as halo upon hair
open your eyes,
to the birth of your immaculate reflection
open your eyes,
behold the ether bride


bomber girl

faceless shadow

shroud of virginity,

only you know who you are

and your hidden dream –

secret cartwheel

upside down,

skin making love to the wind.

demure bride of war

kissing the rug of prayer, wallowing

in the ghost of charlemagne

exalted in your father’s army.

adorned corset of nails –

your heart beats

your body ticks

your purpose bleeds

through

the tourniquet of day.

did you hear the dulcimer,

is he ready to receive,

will he receive

those you sacrifice?
