1000 Times I’ve Lived My Death

Headlights pierce the dark

Rain slams upon the pavement

City reflected

***

Stately, gothic bridge

River flowing far below

Cruel rocks gaze up

***

Speed up. See, just there?

That’s the place, jerk the wheel. Fall.

A freed soul: Darkness

***

Brooked in an instant

The vision recedes: Coward

Tha-thump, solid ground

On Repeat

I am repeated

Within myself-repeated

Tulmult repeated

House of Mirrors

It’s begun again

Descend, yourself, to madness

Feel the rush: free-fall 

***

Soul felt vertigo

Every color mixed to one

Or perhaps it’s none

***

There’s never an end

Spring dawns innumerable

You are the fractal

‘Round ‘n’ Around

A communal decision,

this stubborn belief in Reality.

*

Reality is perception-

Perception can’t be measured.

*

We live only in our minds,

we believe we exist, so we do.

*

We create the things we touch,

objects that can be felt, measured.

*

Sit on the stool we created,

perceive that it is there.

*

It’s there, but only in your mind-

Perception that can be measured.

One Mind

Other half of me,

have I kept you from freedom?

Can we share this space?

***

Feelings that aren’t mine

Impulses I push aside

Is it freedom lost?

***

But this is my mind,

there’s only room for the One.

Where do you belong?

Past Joys

Cattails gently sway

Bowed brown heads against blue sky

Mud squelches, frogs croak

***

Pine, Spruce, pierce the sky

Puma prints wind among trees

Coyotes praise the dusk

***

Musky scent of horse

Deep brown pools of liquid love

Soft lips tickle me

Damned

My love-ly prison

Watching old dreams through love’s bars

Heaven’s on this side
