Exorcism

The demon lies, whispering
in your jealous ear
that I’m the problem
I’m the cause
of your unhappiness
and your pain, stabbing,
I must be, because
weren’t you happy, then
and now, you’re not, and
why not me, my
fat deadweight, selfish brat,
always demanding attention,
keeping you from getting
the respect and devotion
that is so rightfully yours?

I cast you out, demon.
Leave my brother in peace.
Let him heal, and see.
Let him remember himself
and not rewrite history
with your vicious lies.

I cast you back
to burn
in your Hell.
Leave us alone
to create
our own Heaven.

Gateway

Celebrating the start of a new cycle.

Cytherean Dreams

Bending but inviting,
the gates of neither
heaven nor hell
but beauty and
discovery, celebrating
death through bounteous life
that grows, burns and re-grows
in the endless cycle
of whispering trees.
They’re calling me,
Walk through,
to find
what I might see
at the top
of that hill, braving
injury and ruin
to climb
if I’m daring enough
to see the other side
of the summit
quiet in the morning fog.

Daily Prompt: Free

I was asked to define “tantra” recently – here’s a much better answer than the one I gave, I think.

Cytherean Dreams

Daily Prompt: Morphing

Free

I free you.
When I love you, and
transmute the universal light
from heaven down
through energy spirals swirling
through the core of me
the heart and soul
and depths of me
and it flows out
through my hands
my third eye, my sacred
temple and into you
in rainbows bursting
born of ecstasy
and healing, cleansing
rebirth of you, from me,
I free you.
Free is love and tantric fire
and compassion and nurturing,
a shining silver connection.
I free you,
so you can be
amazing.

Tour

I’ve had these words
ringing in my head
for four days now, because
I knew that morning
I knew what you were feeling
trapped and overwhelmed
but I didn’t know what to do
except cry, and I warned you
I did
that I was taking
a huge risk
letting you in
because I would feel it
the negative emotions
and I always hope I’m wrong
and I so rarely am
so I knew, already,
the day before
what was coming
and Spider Robinson’s words
haunted me then
still wring tears from me now.
If you’re bad, he wrote,
you go to Hell, but
if you’re really evil
they give you a tour
of Heaven first.
Thank you for the tour.
At least now I know
what it looks like
up there.
But now they tell me
I have to find
someone else
who wants to
who’s able to
take the trip
with me?
I think I’ll just
dream of heaven
for awhile
and keep my feet
on the ground.

Re-post From the Other Side

Inversion, originally posted on 10/4/12. Inspired by the first time I heard about galactic movement in 2012.

The universe has pivoted
our solar system
drifting
to the other side
of a galactic equator.
We are no longer
where we thought
we were.
I am no longer
who you thought
I was.
A perspective sea change
from heart to heaven
and there is no return
to what once was
right side up.
