into the dark treed forest

cease the dream
come with me
Enter the darkened night 
wander lusting searches sight
to weigh the days
till dusk wakes dawn.
The Ancient ones await
amongst the jade treetops
bright jeweled stars 
chrysanthemum fractal  
scenes beam with 
 shimmer dance of night sky 
fire glow in distant clearing
the time is near.
 drumbeats meaning
the time is here 
a ceremony undertaken
the grand vision
smoke stained eyes 
the mind awakens

infinite waves of bliss 
lick from the living breathing sea
the shore 
eroding the deep chasm of time
a stained glass mandala 
caught like a dream
like a
prism of dew wet web 
lacing together 
the continuum of time to space

My addiction and nightmare

My mind stays stuck
Focused on fake love
And fuck.
These addictions are an old demon
Pretending to be my friend
With whom much wasted time ive spent.
Its true self disguised so well, until the end.
When its all over and done with,
Then i can see things clearly.
Depressed and tired, then the next minute,
Id do anything to do it again.
I am good at pretending it is okay
I can cover the dirt with frosting,
But the dirt still remains
It stays the same.
The same pain,
It leaves a stain.
I tried to face it,
And it visited me in my dream
The same feeling of being as hopeless
As when under the water drowning.
As i started to wake up, back to reality,
I could feel the nightmare fading,
I started swimming to the surface
Of the ocean i was drowning beneath.
I woke up gasping for air,
As if i wasnt able to breath
While facing the truth of my addictions,
And how far i have sunk beneath.
Maybe i have been dreaming,
And during that nightmare I was awake
And able to see the truth clearly
So i could escape the chains and taste
The beauty of truth as i face the light of day.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just keeping it real. As i talk of my shadow, i am shining a light on it. Being me as a whole. Transcendence.
