Rebirth

Do not weep for me now

Do not weep for me now

For I am back in my mother’s arms

 

Do not morn another day

For I walk in peace

With those who have been waiting in the light

To share their everlasting love

 

Do not be saddened

For I have been blessed with your love

And carry it in my heart

To my new plain of existence

 

Do not be afraid

For I am a part of the light that shines down upon you

And brightens your way towards your future

 

Do not feel lonely

For I am the one who will watch over and protect you

Until we again walk hand in hand

To our eternal place of peace

Author's Notes/Comments: 

For those who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. God bless

Confessions

“Who is he?”

I whisper to myself

as your eyes gaze off to the distance

and treat me with the unbearable silence

I’m a little too late, I guess,

I hear your eyes scream, they confess

It is him who holds your heart

The one you’d rather hold your hand

Under the city lights

In a cold November night

 

But my love for you is greater than his.

 

So do the honor and list down the things

you so liked about him

Watch me burn myself with a pile of leaves

and reborn as him

Just let me be your light, your candle tonight

I can be him, your lover, if you like

I’ll cut my wrist, drain the blood my ancestors

passed on to me

Replace it with the words he whispers

when I’m not around

Let his words flow down my veins so you may speak

and tell me all the things you never say to me

Slit my throat with the screen of the phone you use

To capture his face, his smile, the perfection, your muse

Because you never even once

took a picture of me

— or maybe my image is just

too hideous for you to keep?

What strength of lens does he use, you say?

I can smash mine down if it’s not the same

Use the shards to peel off my skin I so badly hate

Blessed is he to have the kind that keeps you sane

I’ll unclench my claws I’ve spent years to build

Pull them out and mold me his hands and feet

Let the blood spritz all over the room

Let them spell: HERE LIES A HOLY FOOL,

WHO SURRENDERED HIMSELF FOR LOVE —

BECAUSE HIS LOVE WAS NEVER ENOUGH.

Tell my mother I died a sweetest death

And I’ll be waiting in line in the Day of Resurrect

Pour out the gasoline all over my corpse for the final touch

Say a short Ignatian prayer before you strike the match

Watch my skin; watch my veins turn to ash, turn to dust,

as I’m enveloped and swallowed by flames

‘Cause I’m tired of fighting, I’m tired of asking,

“Who is Carl, baby? I’m James.”

 

From now on, call me Carl.

Winter Blood

Folder: 
Voodoo

She stepped out into the night

From out of the Nightmare came a cry

The creature's somber humming ever so quiet

luring the unsuspecting into a frenzy

She is all that stands between

a world of ire and a world of light

The shadows writhe in horror;

their ghastly creation a pale abhorrence

She was to be their Chosen One

A warrior angled to live more

than just a hollow existence

The souls were as bright as the stars

But unearthly blood stained the

tips of her hair, her sword, and her solace

Drop by drop it tinged the ground

The beastly burden of loss

The last chance to take a final breath

And all of it- gone.

No second chance.

However, the silence hungers and from

the fires she wakes

She steps out onto the plains

A blizzard creeps down her spine

The Demon Ruins she must bide

One last stop to sharpen the blade

Fill up the flask and check her Faith

The fool she may be

But bathed in blood, a kingdom undone

She will walk the unknown, let her story unfold

To find the truth

To end the curse

...of Winter Blood

Rain

Quench the thirst of dying Earth
Great chasms of interlocking spider-webbed
fractures platforming horizon. 
Sun blistered and writhing. 
Free your brittle skeleton 
wrought 
and sandblasted.
Snarling hiss of wind ripped barren.
Your Freedom exists
swelling within the infinite timeless power
of thunderbolt storm-cloud rain-dance.
Quench the thirst of dying Earth 
  penetrate each bliss-filled fiber
Thirsting endlessly for their saving grace.
Never forever.
Then up the spout again.

It was 4 in the morning when I got the call, it was a foggy night; the kids were  asleep and everything was so quiet, When I picked up the phone I couldn’t understand a word that he was saying, George Guidice the Secretary of State of the United States., “It destroyed everything, The earthquake destroyed everything, I need you to be in JFK within 2 hours, we’ll pick you up then” I was very shocked about Guidice call, I didn’t know what was happening, it just knew that I had to get to the airport as fast as I could. I gave a kiss to my kids and wife and I headed to the airport, when I arrived there was a whole team waiting for me ready to follow my orders. “We’re very glad you’re here doctor, we really need your help”, they said. As I jumped into the plane they started to explain what was happening. The earthquake in Nepal was just the beginning of the end. Based on a NASA super advanced Seismograph they could see where was going to be the next disaster. When I arrived to Nepal I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, everything was destroyed, thousands of persons without a home, starving or hurt. When I arrived to the base camp the secretary of state was waiting for me, he showed me the seismograph and show me all the damage that had happened in Nepal, 2000 casualties and counting . I started to work and I noticed that the next disaster was going to be in California, when I saw that I called the president of the united states immediately. “We must evacuate everyone” he said, so he called all of the leaders of the United States and starting to make all of the preparations for the evacuation, the only problem was that we didn’t knew how much time do we have until the next disaster. I need to stay in Nepal to keep working from here, we cannot do it from other place. After a few hours we got the call that we were hoping we didn’t get, “It has started” he said, the tsunami in California has started, it was a bigger disaster than it was in Nepal, all of the major cities in California were flooded, a lot of people lost everything, 18,000 casualties and counting, the world could not believe what they were seeing, so many people was dying and we were useless we cannot stopped it, After the tsunami in California the world started to worry and the panic started, people all over the world was breaking into markets to buy food, people were running away from the cities and heading to the country side to find shelter, but it didn’t stopped there, after 6 hours it happened in Cabo then in Argentina, then  in Vietnam, London, Barcelona, Rome, Capri and so it was happening, at nearly the end of the world I figured out something, I found an algorithm that could predict when the next disaster was going to happen, The next place that was going to happen was in New York, when I saw the computer I enter in a state of shock, my family was there, I called the president and told him that my family was in New York, he told me he was going to get them out of there before the next disaster, After a few hours before the Earthquake in New york, the aftershock in Nepal arrived, so I lost all connection with my family, the only computer working in the Whole Country was the one I was using with the seismograph, and then I figured it out, the source of the disasters came from somewhere in Bangladesh so I sent a team to figure out what was causing the disasters, When they got back they brought me a small piece of technology I didn’t know what it was, no one did. When I opened it a flashlight came out of it and the last thing I heard was “Reprogramming planet operation starting in 5,4,3,2,1…”

A new Beginning

Folder: 
Just a thought!
The angels sing on heavenly wings and dance in a field of Ambrosia
Pied pipers play a cherub's tune that floats a billowy sky.
Majestic ponies prance the air and ride in candy clouds

The soft winds blow, the sun rays glow, where little fairies lie.

 

Leave your wares and dance with us be jubilant and free

Unadorned, no mask to hide, your loveliness to see

Let your spirit ride the wind, leave all constraints behind,

A new beginning, rebirth of life, unopened book of time.

Breaking Inside

To see the dark in me was to see the light
To set fire to my head was to cleanse my soul of a husk 
To sell my mind to ascension was a must 
It's how I saw there is no us

There's simply One

I saw Infinity within the eye
The spark of the cosmos is how to see what's right
To do that was to become alive
And the hardest thing i've done my whole life
So far i'm thankful for the warm morning sunshine
I grin knowing one day this shell will die

I miss being able to fly

A Dragon's Revelation

 

My wings were cut, torn and cast away.
Left for dead was I, wounded by the fray.
My only sin, to be a lone Drake.
I had no kin to call my own, to watch my back as I flew.
If only I had known the trials, if I only knew.

If only I had given in, to my stubborn ideals.
I would not be there then, bleeding as my wounds did heal.
A Dragon without its brethren is no more than a wounded bird.
Words I cared not to believe, tales I thought were absurd.

Shackled to the post of death, waiting for my soul to be laid to rest.
I gazed up to the sunlit sky and noticed something shine bright.
Almost as if it was an angel, to cast away the long night.
In truth it was not an angel, but more of a second chance.
Another of my kind had heard my cries, not giving my situation a second glance.
Stripped down from those shackles, I dropped limp out of the sky.
The other of my kind darted down, fire of passion burning within those eyes.

“Fear not brother, I shall free you and carry you home.” Were the words spoken.
“You were lost and now rescued. Let us heal that which is broken.”

So for days I flew with this fellow Dragon, resting along its back.
Thinking about my days alone, and why I never turned back.
I was foolish; thinking all I needed was my inner and outer strength.
As cliché as it sounds now, others were needed to end the strife.

That Dragon which called me brother, turned out to be a sister.
She took me to her kin, which accepted me under their wings.
I fly now with them as family, taking on together, whatever this world brings.

 

We are Dragons, ruler of the skies.  Hear our cries out to this world,

And know we watch down from above.  

We live together within our kin, and shall never be apart.  

Unity is our power, and it is never ending.  

Together we fly as one wing in the sky, a bond unbroken.
