Pregnant With Desire

Love and light,
In unsteady flight-
Forced, in fear,
By eyes, so near,
I pray again,
Oh light, do send:
Bless me; shed this decaying skin,
Deliver me; born anew, of a brighter kin.

Towers tall: so strong and sound,
Unshaken by wind, hail and storm-
Give me their steadfastness,
Light, I beg- give me one scar less,
But leave one to hark me back- oh, the pain:
Let not indecision seep in, over again.

As the arms of delirium come forward in embrace,
And the lips of lust kiss my face,
Insatiable inquisitiveness now takes over,
A rush ensues, in apparent race-
And then the sting- so raw and bitter,
Light, I am chastised, and for the better.

But I urge, oh Light, do provide,
That this lesson is forever remembered,
That it shall never meander, or hide:
And into the crevices of my mind surrender-
The memory of a filth that overcame,
Rushed in and almost remained:
Spreading, as does with wind fire,
Leaving my soul-
Pregnant, with desire.

Lost In Translation

Misty waters whirl around,
Transparency is further dispelled,
All it took was transient contact,
Ripples and ripples, succeeding in cataleptic slumber-
Which were begun, by but a diminutive yearning,
Longing, that numbs the conscience.

And then, again, the same touch would awaken:
A thousand minds in rapid succession,
Unity in utter independence-
Where awareness brings hopeful venture;
One mind, must instigate,
One heart- must set them in action.

Energy in its eternal and pious concentration,
Passing through a coarse coexistence-
Saturating and disappearing,
Sometimes in distraught squander,
Where souls annihilate:
-In mirthful ignorance- usurped only by insanity.

This miasma, now overwhelms,
And clarity is involuntarily beckoned,
Seeking its connotation- in what it is not;
Realizing- reality would halt in absence of denial;
Questioners now question:
-Tearing all meaning apart.

Where is this planet?
Soaked in ludicrousness-
And somehow, still, ostensibly rational.
Where be my kin, I, even?
In relentless flurry-
Magical, still, limited and bound.

Lost in desire?
Lost in faith?
Lost in love?
Lost in hate?

Emotions, words:
People, worlds:

Lost, in translation…
