Of The Departed

Sometimes you have to stretch your imagination, and comprehend that all is not quite as we have been indoctrinated to believe. My subject now knows this.


 

 

He wakes – opening his eyes to a welcomed day’.
Through the leaden fug of inebriation
He contemplates the situation present
And asks himself
Wasn’t I supposed to thank the Universe for these…
These opportunities for fresh assault?

 

A breeze billows out the greyed window spinnaker
Bringing the tang of burned hair and skin
Upon it’s light smokey carrier.
And from his high residency
The mournful bells are agonising screams
Assaulting the opportunity for breath.

 

Sudden realisation awakens his consciousness,
And he is at once truly well aware
That what he senses with old teeth and nails
Are false manifestations.
False manipulations by demon hosts
Whose desire is to encapsulate his soul.

 

Light or dark no longer pose a choice,
He sees light can contain mendaciousness
As easily as a darkness can be divine,
And in the divining of his way ahead
He chooses the smooth silky endlessness
of darkness that he alone can illuminate.

 

“May your creator bless you forever”
Echos through his mind – ripples in space –
As he opens up his heart to encompass
The unbelievable comfort and soft Manna
That fills his wholeness, every single part,
And it fits him like the Lord Creator’s love.

this is great, it can stand alone too it can become a short poem, with zen qualities.

I don’t think it’s a travesty but then again I don’t understand fully how you say it.

this is an interesting subject for me.

dark and light are two qualities that can become a state of being and define all other qualities we may have or want to have.

if it is too dark, correct it with some light.
if it is too light, correct it with some darkness

anything to release blocked energy.

there’s nothing to forgive, say what you have understood whenever you can, we all need to share more of our understanding, but let us all remember things change develop and everything we think share or tacitly understand and experience are being evaluated anew by us or with the help of a greater power. so choices actually help us equalize our qualities so that the sound of our own existence, our song, is pleasant to our ears and to whoever’s approaches us. we are something like learning DJs, yes we ‘compose the music’ but then we have to adjust it. and… Read more »

Ying and Yang? The cosmic duality; masculine and feminine, light and dark, good and evil; how can we have one without the other? Thanks Allen, a most thought provoking peice.

Allen,

I would always choose “smooth silky endlessness
of darkness.” You are so right; we can paint anything we like into that darkness, illuminate is with whatever radiance we like. And there is the balance – we bring light and dark together into one and there is no contradiction whatsoever.
