Escape

.
.
This roof compresses my pain
Too tight knotted freedom binds
The sitting ghost composes wishes
Shuts the door heavy everywhere
The anguish I cannot contain
Swims in a liquid sky
Escaping through windows
The burning meteor glass
Shatters in rising suns
What sorrow has come again
Having never dispersed
The war twists dancing
On one leg stork stepping
Is joy an illusion of the insane

Escape

.
.
One dark morning
Clouds ashes brown light
I crawled from my shelter
I stood in the gloom
I welcomed the new day
I appeared to be living
Walking to the walls
Which surrounded me
Surrounding my home
Surrounded the world
I began to climb
I had grown strong
In my aloneness
Every step had been
A dancing poem
Every poem had been sung
Every song beat my drum
My heart was thunder
My ears heard the silence
I climbed hand over hand
My bare feet seeking purchase
I climbed I climbed
I climbed singing
The Eagle’s song
No Eagle’s heard me
No one could hear
The Eagle’s song
I sang I sang I sang
And sometimes
I paused to scream
I screamed I screamed I screamed
I feared my screaming
Might never stop
I was alone
I disturbed no one
High on the walls of the abyss
I looked around
Below was darkness
Above was gloom
Shedding ashes
Upward I struggled
I struggled I struggled
Reaching what seemed
I flat place I stopped
Resting Resting I rested
Below was darkness
Above was gloom
Shedding ashes
I wanted to scream more
The ashes were heavy
Upward I climbed
The gloom darkened into
Blackness below
And blackness above
Suspended in darkness
The solid wall of the abyss
To which I clung
Named itself hope
In darkness I climbed
Weary weary so weary
Something was new
There was no wall
Above no wall
No wall before
I rolled over a ledge
Onto flat darkness
Darkness before
Darkness behind
Darkness above
I slept on the flat darkness
And dreamed
I dreamed of gloom
Lightening the morning
And ashes falling
In my sleep I screamed
Awakening
I screamed I screamed I screamed
There were no echoes
The morning was brown gloom
Ashes fell
No walls surrounded me
I could see flatness
In all directions
A brown gloomy sky
Arched over the world
With no walls
Ashes fell and I stood
Each step puffing ashes
Ashes fell into my footprints
Erasing
Erasing my passage

Gently Captured

.
.
What shall I do,
When all is pain,
And I can produce
Nothing of value?
.
What shall I think
When thinking entraps,
Tangled and confused,
In foolish youth lost?
.
How can I live,
When I feel only
Grief and heartache,
Pain and sorrow?
.
Shall I run away,
Through the veil,
Beguiled with dreams
And illusions?
.
Shall I allow
Shimmering wonders
To gently capture me
In illusory pleasure?
.
When will I find
This dream-like veil?
I wish to be lost
In soothing mysteries.

Waiting Voice

.
As you are
So empty
Fill your self
Meaningless
Difficult tasks
.
Waiting
.
As you do not
Worn out
Have anything
No love
Nothing to do
.
Waiting
.
Do that which
No one wants to do
Ugly broken
I know that
Escape
.
Waiting
.
You will not
Mindless
Mind to do these
Trapped
But bothersome
.
Waiting
.
Awkward dangerous
Time consuming
Wearying thankless
Patched together
You don’t mind
.
Waiting
.
Because you
After all should
Space clouds cosmos
Be grateful
To breathe
.
Waiting
.
I provide you
With something
All around beauty
Lost where
To do with your
.
Waiting
.
Worthless
Time Useless
Everywhere pain
I do not care
For your mystery
.
Waiting
.
I too
Am waiting
For your
True voice
To stop this
.
Waiting
.

Sentient

.

.
From the endless cycle
I’ve been set free
I dance the Dance Insane 
No more eternal pain
The repeating cycle
Forthcoming return again
And again and again
Escape from forever
Is to ask for repeat
All illusion in alone
Compassion for tomorrow
The ending is the start
Sentient volunteering
Always forever not apart
Repeating together
Sharing all fate
From consequences
We cannot part
More life yet unborn
Future of more centuries past
The stars and music and history
Cosmic dream dancing death
All is illusion
Reality of nothing at last
Can mean what you like
The meaning’s all one
In its infinite forms
Resonance incarnate
Cosmic music fun
Toiling struggle peace
Nothing Nothingness
Everything Nothing
Infinite Nothing
Empty Nothing
Void Nothing
Eternal Nothing
Never and Nothing
Compassion Infinite
Timeless and Clocked 
All and Nothing
The same
All One
All One
