Ends

Time went on
Little children

Playing in the dirt
Bright white grins
Were left behind
Old skins shed

Innocence lost
Trying

To hold on to a dream
You once saw

A moment
In a flower
Time goes on
Leaving behind

Youth
Strength and pride
Upraised chins
Defiance
Time keeps going
Work
Children
Bodies fail and age
Memories

Heavy as rocks
Try to hold on to Life
Time stops short
Ends

But It Won’t Be Inside Your Mouth

Yesterday was love
It seemed there were lessons to be learned
We always seem to need those on a holiday
Anyway
So I woke up from a dream I wished would be
But it was just a dream you see

And so I came to this conclusion:

Don’t believe in dreams
You’ll end up with both open eyes
Empty hands believe in only what is real
And lives inside you

Papa told once the truth
When I was just a youth
and I will repeat the same thing now for the you

Wish in one hand shit in the other one
See which one fills up faster
Do not place your hopes on movies stars or kings
When the movie ends you will be left with nothing
When the kingdom crashes down you will be all alone
With nothing in a pile of rubble staring
at your empty hands
Don’t put all your happiness
Upon another person
It is very likely one day they will be gone far away
And don’t imagine you are happy
Because you have a home
Because really
All it is is just a place for the sack of skin you live in
To reside

Abide in that skin and you’ll be home
No matter if the kingdom falls
No matter how the winds may blow
And if it all comes crashing down again
Just smile and walk off
Like the hero did
In the movie that you only just remember from a dream

Oh my friend don’t cry
Don’t let your soul belong to the world
World will betray you
Don’t let your mind get set upon a game
The game the game will slay you
Don’t let money be the only focus of life life or beauty
You will someday lose it all
You will lose it all and the angels will come to take you away

Nothing much will matter in the face of that day
The things you dreamed the most of then
Will have nothing to do
With the things you thought you loved outside of you
It will be the love you gave to
More than dreams
Love who you are
More than the dream and shooting stars
More than anything on earth love God

The rest is just the wind
Yes wind is beautiful
It makes the silent things sing out
But it won’t always be inside your mouth…

Hurt Beats

No lex talionis

Gone are the Queensbury Rules

Hurt beats pump the fist

World full of fools

Malum in se

Iniquitus strive to win the ring

With a coprolite stone

While the demons sing

Sanctify me ordo-fine me

I do as as I will

You think I am your dancing blue man

Sweating to his grave

You

Your love is so invidious

You

Dire and disasterous

Maladie du pays

Living soul it flays

Chopping off the days

Until dead….it lays

Mortify me Mort amour

Nail one soul upon your door

Angels cry, “Dolores! Dolores!”

Crying on the ground….all fours.

You

My lexicon of ‘know’

You

My multum in parvo

You

Muse to my bard

You

Confuse me hard

You

My sacrament….my ritual

My own hell I did consent

Consecrate me concentrate me

Excommunicate me

Love unsent

Atropos

The loveliest memories
Come from the time
We begin to remember
A world unfallen
A world not yet damaged
By Destiny?
Are there three fates awaiting me?
My weft shuttled back and forth
The treadles under God’s command
How then do I stand?
… Will ‘Atropos’ be quick when my thread is cut
Like the cord I was attached to while screaming
Into this world I did not ask to be
Or will the Thread unravel slowly
But one hug can make me stop thinking
If I could stop thinking
Long enough to live
Lonliness like the Roman whip
Lead tipped
Shreds this soul
Until even one hug in weeks
Is a kind of speechless wonder
No price asked
No requirements
Just for free
No NO!
Don’t let go!
Those demons will return!
