I never thought I’d find myself again
offending the shadows
that invade my thoughts
reminding me I am their reflection –
They’ve kept me quiet
They’ve kept me good
Now the planets have aligned
ripping me from my protective film –
I’m painted with new skin
and transported to an alien’s world –
The world was just discovered
hiding beyond the moon –
A star was anointed as god
welcomed home after long, long away
What is goodness
in the minds of gods?
The golden polish
of the well-laid halo
only sparkles on the side you see –
The other side has touched
the stars in forbidden voids;
licked the honey
from poisoned flowers –
When the sparkles outshine
the withered parts
the gods smile down
and endow the talents –
Demons look up
and like what they see
How do you want me to read this?
In a sexy voice that purrs in your ears
until you melt and seep into the floor?
In a tense voice that lashes your core
making your insides dream of escape?
What about a silly voice playing with you
in uproarious fits of laughter?
Are you reading this in your head?
Am I passing through your tongue?
Feel my words
Solve my puzzles
Give me a voice
Today I created.
There is now something in the world
that had never existed before –
It came from my own brain and my own hands.
Today the world is that much better
Why flaunt your sexless being?
Hiding your curves behind a drape of sagging material and self-loathing –
Who gave you permission to withdraw from life?
Only to occupy a space, never to improve on an emptiness –
No, those pants don’t make you look fat
They make you look pathetic!
Stop thinking such tactics are acceptable –
Tailor yourself into a god
Lift up the curtains
Draw out your sex and own it hard
All that I can dream
hangs softly in the air –
a clean sound invading my veins –
It carries me away
on its ethereal note
making love to my soul –
It is the song I’ve known
since I was born –
It’s wrapped itself around my life –
making me pause
making me believe there’s more –
the note lingers
until it breaks under the weight
caught by the strings
and flung towards the sun
