Peace or something like it…

militant blog

It was dark, crisp and ripe
This day that never ends.
Eternity and illumination
A dream that needs to be believed
For fear of this aching brittle future.
I won’t remember when it is all done
When it is all over
The only respite in my woke state.
Trembling at the thought of possibility
That tomorrow could change, that this
Could end, that peace lies within reach.

never blog
untethering my grasp
just allowing
this free falling motion
to evaporate all ideas
these notions
of greatness
that befall
even great men
linger too long
enveloped in this
all too satisfying
world of luxurious
bravely moving out
from under the thumb
til its all just
tiny dots in the distance
cloudy and rained upon
muddy and murky
untethering my grasp

just allowing…

Spiritual Poetry

Standing Strong

image twice
I am awake
I am dreaming
Pulling at the strings
Held together by a nation
Of ideas, of principles.
You have captured me
In this second, you see me
You believe you know me
Time didn’t stand still
I’ve changed.
In this moment, I am breathing
Sure of myself, of my footing
Nothing says a wave won’t come
And knock me down again,
But here I stand.

Spiritual Poetry


in my most
private moments,
I attune myself
with you,
naked yet
before you,
my identity
and my wounds
on the ground.
petals whirl
around me,
scented of
dewdrops and melon,
an earthy potion
that transfixes,
sending me
deeper still
into myself,
deeper into

My darker side is metal, strength, deeply truthful in word and action, unafraid of living, of existing or making mistakes. My darker side isn’t evil or bad; it is powerful. So in a way my dark side is both light and good. It is my lighter side that requires more growth, for though it is good, it is still harmful to me.

“I guess we’re all two people. One daylight, and the one we keep in shadow.”
