True Strength

May your strength and my love guide you always on your path.

Cytherean Dreams

You’re my hero, my love,

throwing your heart and body

into the fires of condemnation

holding yourself up

in a searing spotlight

to do what you went there for

what they need you to do.

To fight, putting all else aside,

and to win, to build a future

better for many than what is now.

You’re built from true strength

to withstand such flames.

Drunk Dial

I’ll just
turn off the computer
before I do
something
really stupid, like
e-mail you again, when
I know, I really do know
that you
have no interest
in me
anymore or
need for me or
spark that
lights up when
you see anything
from me and
you haven’t even read
the last ones
but just
sent them into
firewall misery
burst into
ether digital flames
so why do I want
so, so badly,
just to tell you
that I miss you and
I think about you
every time I see that
stupid courtyard, every day,
and I check
to see whether
you still
list yourself
as single, but
what does that
matter anyways
you can’t
even look at me
not even digitally, anymore,
and
I’m just
a fading memory
of a silly time when
you lost your head
for just a bit, and
did things
you don’t ever
want to do again,
at least
not with
or because of
me.
Thank God
I deleted your number
and can’t
be so stupid
as to actually call.

Challenge

I want something
I’ve never had, not
really, I’m sorry
to those I hurt
by saying this truth.
I’ve never had a
true partnership
an equal on all levels
a friend who is
also a lover whose love
lifts my soul into
higher planes
and whose friendship
grounds me in this world
gives me strength to fuel
my work here,
up there.
So this is my challenge
to myself, and to you.
To put aside
what I know already
is beyond incredible
our nearly holy rapture
and focus instead
on the friendship and
partnership and
build those first,
fuel the flames
burst our light
to the heavens
for when, if
we come together
in love again.

Fireball

Arcing through the sky,
a passionate fireball fell
into my life and left
charred embers in its wake, but
the ashes melt away
in my cooling, soothing rain, and
green life bursts forth,
new flowers blooming
in soil richer now,
from the flames.

My candle’s still burning bright…

Cytherean Dreams

There is no place for despair
in the fire glowing
white moonlight torch
cleaning out the stale air
breathing deeply, finally.
I want to lick the flames,
ingest the burning heart,
light my own inner fire
stroking crystalline and clear.
What possibilities lie
in the next five minutes?
hours? days? weeks?
No room here for despair –
fiery change and new hopes flicker
glowing white.

Crucible

When will this end?
The flames of Hell
licking my feet,
as I walk through
travel between
the clutches of my
crucible of fire
Lord of the Underworld
guiding me through
this transformation
where I will
either melt into nothing
or become
a diamond, hard and
bright with promise?
I’m traveling through Hell
to reach Heaven
and as the path stretches
even farther again, I
just need to know,
when will this end?
