I thirst for more

Detriment
---------Falling
----------------Body Parts
The Fall continues

Darkness's will haunts in translucence
Letting you see what you're losing
As you fall deeper into the pit

-----------------------------------------Escapism
--------------------------------No chance
-----------------------Incubated
The Cycle remains fixed

Ghosts sing songs of self-hatred
Their siren chants spread their hollow form
The sparkle of their tears dazzles their victim

Forgetfulness
-------------Draining
---------------------Resources
The Personal Power sleeps

One stays isolated, trapped, in a world with bars made of perception
Heavy, is the crown of thoughts and feelings
My actions do not show my screams, but my habits do show my night terrors

---------------------------------------------------------Starched
-------------------------------------------------Brooding
----------------------------Swelling of the heart
The Insecurity self-sustains

The dreams awaken the eyes
Moments of introversion revelate
Prison becomes sanctuary
The Waters That Be induce chemical reactions

Light to water, water to body

Sugar

So — here again,
Strange — as always,
Café — in french? typical,
Funny — how we always meet at the stroke of each minute,
Almost — like the last time was a past life,
It Begins — A new encounter each time,
Hugging — at the frontier of a new life, each existence,
Sweet — is the moment, the fruit we eat, the coffee we drink,
The things we say — the moments we share

The tranquility within the chaos

"The rubble lies at the castle's wake!"
and the bishop grows a garden in the blood
Missionary tales paint caustic consequences -
crunching men like chocolate
From one end — to another,
the peace we hold holds us from the peace we seek
There is no fight, no victory, but an end to the massacre
Unshaken peace becomes comfort
Unawakened comfort becomes sleep
Sleep becomes death
If vigour will cause me to live then
let my blood bubble like wine
The work is in the ease and in the fear
To go beyond what is known to my shadow
Moving into somewhere with no forward
The chaos that swallows, and jails with its teeth
No mercy can be given without retribution
Those who stay in the shroud, cry and laugh
They are now jackals, guard dogs
to the world of the broken
Once the illusion is dissolved
The Pearl of Peace shall fall at your feet
Glowing, in the castle's wake.

The potential has been actualised

The stars continue to fluster
may I come into your view?
The soul looks dark tonight
But the mind looks bright today
A child is born but never birthed
The produce, the milk of the universal radiation
The microwaves wash me of doubt
they wash me of happiness
The power to fall has been realised
White has now found black
My eyes see now instead of my thoughts
The artist's imagination blocks his intuition
To create he must become free
To succeed he must learn how to be

PURE FUCKING RAGE

I want power --
Not over others,
To want to see the power within.
Potential actualized.
The power to work.
The power to dream.
The power to concentrate.
The power to assert oneself.

The commander hides within
We charge when our backs are against the wall
The animal screams
and we curse.

Through crisis I am energized,
The demons call when the angels fail.
Underrate me,
See what happens.
A fire will consume you, and
I shall be the catalyst.
The monster that lights the match,
A fire of pure fucking rage.

Raindance

I'm at the ready
my sword is sheathed.
You want war?
Come get it.
Push me into the battlezone
I will eat you alive.
The wolves shall starve tonight.

Zodiac

Should we 
rid of
the sun
because, it
culti-vates
shadows?
Should the 
light
burn on, if 
it only
makes
darkness?
The star
that burns
brightest
has nothing
to hide.
And in that
nothing, breeds
darkness that
haunts us.

Psychedelia amongst the stars – Remix

Swaying my hand through the night sky like water
My fingers river through time and space causing ripples
The stars, watching, float in ominous darkness
Orion's polka-dot reflection skates on the ocean's jagged plane.

Rafting towards the edge of the world,
I surf on the ocean's creases
Rocking and rolling
Rising and falling
Not to find the horizon until morning
It hazed away and left me here, bare, with the gods

Forces of nature sling from left to right before me -
Things I cannot see but dreams I can yet feel
Streams pull in and out as the heartstrings of the moon's tides

I stir the ocean's kiss with my paddle like a chocalate mousse
Then reach for the moon, pulling it closer towards my latitude
In order to illuminate my view of the universe
as I sit on my dry wooden raft and read my poetry in peace.

Love of wisdom

Keep it simple,
Keep it true.
I love you.

Annya

Dear Annya,

Help me let go of you. I can’t let go, it’s not a need for you but something I can’t explain. A phenomena. I’m into you and I don’t care what you say, I know you’re into me. Maybe your interest in me has faded but mine hasn’t. It may go into the depths of my consciousness but it’s still there. I don’t know why. It’s not usually this hard. I forget people all the time but you seem to pop up when I don’t even want you to. I want to say I love you but I don’t think Iit’s that. It’s too easy. I can’t say I don’t love you but that’s not the answer I need. I would love to chase this fantasy with you. Us together would probably end in a trainwreck but the journey would probably be great. Why the fuck are we not together?

I don’t want to push my desperation onto you but it if it makes you feel better, it’s probably from just working in isolation too much. But also you’re wise to a degree. When I realised you’re smart my Annya-dream-count doubled in frequency. You’re so much more than what I see on your instagram, you’re so much more than your abundance of silence during our phone calls – at least to me. You’re something worth caring about to me in a world where I think everything is bullshit. I’m writing this letter because I need to be able to either hold you or drop you but I can’t live in the limbo of my heart’s desires, I just can’t. I don’t want you to lose someone who can give you what you need in life and I don’t want to lose someone who I actually feel someone who I actually feel something for; and don’t tell me we can be friends because even as friends, I’ve lost you. Following each other on insta, seeing each other’s photos but not speaking for months or years, semi-awkward random encounters on Oxford Street that last 5 seconds and end with “We should meet up sometime.” even though we won’t. That’s what friendship is now, that’s what losing each other would look like.

I don’t want that, I want you. I don’t want to want you but I do. Help me help you. If you still don’t see or feel something after this then so be it. I’ll never hate you but I’d be regretful if I never got to love you.

Take care Annya,

think about it and stay in touch.
