Kindred Words

beauty dark

Gaze upon this vision of intrigue

An enticingly enchanted insistence

Hauntingly seductive in every way

She draws you into her existence

Whispers in promise of sheer ecstasy

Tenderly caressing the willing ear

Shivers of anticipation consume me

Pleasure and pain are tinged with fear

Lay me down in this bed of thorns

Draw me into alluring web of desire

Barbed wire wrapped in silk and lace

Frozen chill of wanton passions fire

Eyes of mirrored elegance hold me

Caught in deadly darkened trance

Exquisite beauty binds me to shadows

Amidst this unbridled salacious dance

Souls entangled in carnal surrender

My will to be no longer my possession

Shadows cast by blinding crimson light

This beauty dark my only true obsession

Skies Burn

35d1b209963b43aaf270e3a2113f305e

Skies burn wildly and with great purpose

Perhaps to set fire to an idle imagination

 

A mind filled with great burdens gets heavy

As a lifetime of hardships takes its toll

Stunning how a gift of second chance restores

What seemed so entirely and carelessly cast away

Weak moments followed by self inflicted failures

Can be seen as stepping stones to self only now

 

Places I have been and trials I have endured

Have only brought me to this stunning view

I find within myself the strength to share

This knowledge I have so harshly obtained

So as not to be found again by the innocents

Under the now watchful eye of my heart

 

Imagination awakened by an eclipse of the sun

Words as my weapons in a fight for our lives

I stand proud, strong and always at the ready

To wield my newfound power of protection

Over adversaries of mind numbing aggression

All falling victim to prides merciless onslaught

 

An idle imagination no longer of any concern

As purpose has been restored while wild skies burn

Libra/Pisces Love Connection

Look into these eyes

Tell me what you see

Is it easy to see so deeply

Two souls melding

Simultaneously?

 

All for one

And one for each other

Two heads, one heart

Signs of air and water

Should never be apart

 

Over ravages of time

Countless bygone ages

Unquestionably together

Seemingly always

Every kind of weather

 

The balance provided

With steady determination

To each heart upon the scale

Comes from his love for love

As we discover journeys tale

 

No mountain too high

Nor burden too heavy

No river too wide

To keep perfection away

Once at each others side

 

Adversity would be better

Finding a new direction

To turn tail and run

Libra Pisces love invincible

These two hearts beat as one

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pencil Me In

Pencil Drawing by Paul Lung

amazing-pencil-artwork-by-paul-lung-10-e1278014628676

Depth of character

Brought about by the jungle

Reflective in my eyes

The outline of experience

 

Kind determination

Will see you through

If you struggle I will be here

To accompany you through shadows

 

I walk with a prideful swagger

 Concealing a warriors stagger

Hardened by ageless adversity

This willingly peaceful heart

 

Been to the mountain and back

 Thrown to the wolves once again

I have run with both pride and pack

They’ve no idea their alpha’s my friend

 

So skillfully drawn into my eyes

Are the windows to my soul

And each defining line of my brow

Tells a story of tribulation and triumph

Six Questions (Pandora’s Box)

fire-love-heart-wallpaper-for-windows-wallpaper-love-heart-download-fire-dragon-vector-blue-water-windows

Who

Who is to say where our destiny lies?

To decide where this illusion ends

And real life comes into view

Fates are wrapped up tight

Inside Pandora’s ornate box

 

What

What strange and cruel reality is this?

Where such perfection is far out of reach

As close as a gentle loving whisper

Yet so far away the distance is unbearable

While time ticks away the miles in between

 

When

When will the day arrive that sees the miles disappear?

Forests and deserts vanishing into togetherness

As time succumbs to the power of beauty

And Pandora’s box can finally be unlocked

Letting free this torrent of raw human emotion

 

Where

Where will we be inside our minds?

When we are allowed into our secret garden

Free at last to run wild and let passions grow

To fevered pitch while the skies open wide

Engulfing rays of light pouring from our souls

 

Why

Why must it take so long?

To bring meant to be into being

To see what was so obviously hidden

Right in plain view for all but one

While ravages of time laughed mockingly

 

How

How are we to find our way to hearts freedom?

The promise of morning balances against the night

Sun and Moon in an obedient place in the sky

While Pandora’s box finally reveals it’s mysteries

Beautiful mayhem pours directly into our solitary heart

A Lion Learns

2bb6e29922b467c9b85b354c1f2bc3c6

A Lion must learn

How to carefully tread

Walk slowly and with purpose

So not to trample unknowingly

He must never show ferocity

In any wrong direction

Or with any ill intent

To the ones he vows to protect

Whether his beloved tamer

Or the gentlest little lamb

His guidance is golden

Only if given unconditionally

He must remember this

Above all

In his weakest moments

They will build him up

Always if he holds true

To the code of the Lion

The Loyalty, and Courage

Strength and Honor

Pride held in highest regard

For the ones who need him most

Yet truthfully

He would walk forever lost

Without those he keeps

Ever vigilant guard over

Unsecret Deathwish

Favim_com-37424

It is with wonder and amazement

That I look upon the beauty of danger

Life has tried it’s best to strike me dead

More than once and so now I laugh

 

Comrades in arms upon mountains and shores

Elbow to elbow in deep woods or high waves

My serenity found in beauty of nature

Yet with an endorphin filled adrenaline twist

 

Some are called to the roads and mountain trails

While others cast out from the oceans shore

All for one and one for all the others

A feeling of freedom unknown by the weak of heart

 

High speeds and overhead surf call us

Each to our individual pursuits

Yet similarities of cultural bond and brotherhood

Remain etched deep in our skin and bones

 

So whether adrenaline filled two wheeled descents

Or fins on the surface outside the heavy break

One thing shared by surfers and cyclists alike

Is this strange fascination with our Unsecret Deathwish
