Cracked Glass

Cracked glass

I lived with you in a world of false reality.

All because I took your hand.

Together we rode upon your broken wings as you swept me away to never ever land.

The glass cracked, and reality bled through.

…….

I opened my eyes, and I was alone… and had been so all along.

Fear, betrayal, bitterness and of course contempt.

These emotions are dark as the night, and they poisoned my soul.

…….

Sick, desperate, and festering with fear I ventured into the depths of hell.

Down beneath the ground, where the flames burn hot, I saw his face.

The devil, like you my dear promised me lies.

With my remaining strength I punched the devil in the face and stabbed him in his darkened heart.

I swore that day to never fall for such temptation again.

…….

Growing up is part of life, some say the most painful part of all.

I want to say it happens to everyone, but that too is a delusion.

Many like I run away to never ever land where youth is eternally sipped from a goblet of false dreams.

There is a price tag for such is insanity so drink it wisely or perhaps it is better not to not indulge at all.

Feathered flower

Feathered flower

Feathered flower.

Beautiful silk petals.

That wither in the light of the moon.

——————————————

Flames of eternity.

Ignited by the spark.

Of our beating hearts

————————————————-

Rejuvenated by love.

Not for another.

But of self-restoration.

——————————————–

Drowning the sorrows of regrets.

Clean the past from your hands.

Let it go…

———————————————-

Strength from within.

The foundation of the soul.

Watered, nurtured, and given light.

—————————————————–

Grounded with strength.

Blooming with colors.

Of unspeakable beauty.

Discarded youth

Discarded youth

Young like a child, I trusted you instinctively.

Never once questioning your lies.

Remove the blindfold.

——————————————————

Discarding my remains.

The love between us

Has slipped away.

—————————————————————–

Once I shed tears.

Tears for the years.

No more will I cry.

——————————————————————-

Under the influence of your spell

You dragged me through hell.

I escaped.

———————————————————————-

Discarded youth,

age that once calloused the soul.

Time has left me wise.

————————————————————-

New growth,

sprouting from the crop and burn.

The scar you left on my heart.

Magic Within

Magick Within

Magick: the energy that connects the human spirit to that of the divine.

All seeing eye… open revealing the lines of chaos, where insanity breeds.
Beyond the strings of perception lie the fabric of the unseen universe.

Diverging between reality. Unraveling the tangled web of the universe.
Beyond the cosmos.

Within the witches eye a magic resides.
Here lies a secret world of endless possibilities. Eye wide open, all seeing with wonder.

Whimsical goddess in all her forms. She tells me. “Feel… don’t think.”
I embrace her touch… that of electricity within my soul.

A pulse flowing from the cosmos and beyond.
Breathe I must remember to breathe...
Tears of blessing stream a river of compassion.

Warm waters of emotion. Blockage removed, no longer stagnant, free flowing rivers which bubble to the surface.

Life thriving with each beat of your heart.
Awakened after years of slumber.
No longer dormant.

No longer afraid.
Emotions no longer churn for the storm of chaos has resided.

Is it the work of god?
Or the gift of empowerment?
Is there a difference?

Still the questions flood the mind body and soul…

Can you feel her breath on the coming wind?
Do you hear the voice of the goddess as she calls your name?

My mind is riddled with questions. Anxiety of our own nature.

Endless thoughts, wishing for a desperate silence… for now I settle the chaos one breath at a time.
