Waiting For The Muse

I received a computer
to occupy my fingers
to occupy my heart
with a true current
with a true feeling
I sat down in front of it
staring at the white screen
I was tapping in my mind
a thought after a thought
they showed up like ghosts
without a shape
without a sound
they simply showed up
I set my eyes on the white screen
I set my fingers on the keys
I set my heart free and light
letting my mind to visualize of a shape
yet unknown
yet unperceived
every time I struggled
I lost the muse
as though the muse never showed up
The eyes were draining
fingers were aching
and my heart was lost
somewhere between
despair and sobbing
I went to bed letting my mind
to slumber with ghosts
With a pen and a paper
in my hand
I went to bed letting my mind
to slumber with ghosts

Ruby Aura

Flames of the aura glow in a ruby light,
Caught in the luster of these sacred fires,
Our spiritual passions so aligned in the night,
With an emerald desire our souls ascend higher.

With a diamond shine you say your mine,
For our immortal quest was no small feat,
Now with a love stronger then the force of time,
Our passions of nature align as our lips meet.

Together we cast our sacred spiritual desire,
Unto the place where the infinite does dwell,
Mesmerized by the embers of our eternal fire,
Through the souls weave of a Druid love spell

Our essences now unify in a higher place,
With enlightened minds together we see,
The cosmic destiny of our star-bound race,
In both the nature of you and the passion of me.

It

I see it
Feel it
I close my eyes
They are transparent
Bright
White
Yellow
Warm
I consume it
Breathe it
Absorb it
Reflect it
Others take mine and I take theirs
We share it
Each our own kind
It bounces off each soul
Dances
Until it doesn’t
It stops
Sometimes the stop is ignored
And it still continues
But most of the time a new one forms
A dark kind
It doesn’t bounce
Or dance
It is shot
Sharp
Cold
Deep into them
Imprinted
Stamped
But not the fun kind
Until someone puts light in it
Carefully
Gently
Lightly
Cautiously
Lights it up
And IT’s journey continues

My Angel

My life was a night, dark and long
A metronome of pain, a melancholy song
You brought back light and sun shone bright
Weaving a melody of joy and delight

Your dreamy eyes are like oceans deep
Ah! What would I give to watch you sleep?
That lovely smile, a tranquil sensation
Is the zenith of an artist’s imagination

Your words are true, honest and pure
My wounds, they soothe; my illness, they cure
Your charming face is like flawless moon
Which made me fall for you too soon

Your love and care makes my heart pound
Sweetheart in u, my angel I’ve found
Bound together by the hand of fate
We share a relationship sheer and great

My love for you is an undying fire
Your happiness oh dear, is all I desire
Wishing fervently to powers that be
Your company, I pray, be granted to me

A Pokemon Kind Of Love

He is the Umbreon to my Espeon,
The Ash Ketchum to my Misty.
He is the Nidoking to my Nidoqueen,
The Nurse Joy to my Brock.
We fit together perfectly,
Like a water and electric combo move.
Critical hit! To my heart,
Like a double slap to my brain.
I’m losing HP when we aren’t together,
And every kiss is a full restore.

Don’t!

Don’t!

Don’t challenge
and you won’t know

Don’t follow
and you won’t grow

Don’t plant your dream
and you won’t sow

Don’t try
and you won’t know,

Can’t see
so you don’t find

Can’t feel
so you don’t mind

Can’t hear so you
don’t bind

Can’t speak so
you don’t shine

Don’t!

The Wolf

I want to feel the moon’s soft touch on my back
Her light caress me as I run
Sheath by darkness
My path illuminated only by her light
I want to feel branches scar my skin as I run
The pain unnoticed in my excitement
Branches belonging only to the forest
My home
The home hidden in the dark
The woman of the house is the only lamp around
My cry to her is that of a child to its mother
I cry to my mother with my howl
She never answers
She doesn’t have to
I hear her silent whispers to me in the dead night
Whispers no one can hear
They say I hear voices
They say I am crazy
There is only one voice
The voice of my mother, of the moon
I run enough and I will find them
My family
Brothers and sisters bonded my soul rather than blood
They hear her whispers
I’m not alone
Finally
Finally I wake in the correct body
Finally I wake as the Wolf
