I have a new one that I've been kicking around.

Chasing My Tales
I grew so tired of chasing my Tales
Trying to find my solution
Without going stale
I am forever what I always was
I see from these eyes everything but my point of view
I need to listen more to nothing
So that something emerges beyond
My silly false understanding of myself
The I has IT
The eye is where I originate
The blend of color into the black abyss
From the white through to the iris
I admit I’m the pupil

Beau,

Thank you for sharing that poem.

It inspired this one...

EYE DREAM

That tall tale came from a wise head;
Thought I had two eyes, till I went to bed.

Fell asleep, woke up in a different world;
All my senses in tact, colors in a swirl.

Sun wasn't there but I still see;
Eyes were closed, how could this be?

People are pupils, wise sage said;
Light shines from within, then I woke up in my bed...

- Eye Teared Up

Here's one I just penned.

You Are My Lucid Dream

I think about you all the time
I wonder as I wander through the passages of a rhyme
This character has worn out its welcome
And depressed I shall be no more
I died today to show you
That I never went away
My name is not important
I just wanted you to know
You are the center of my attention
Because I think about myself
We are one within the planet
And we travel in outer space
I dream this whats happening and you can still see my face
We are real forever and a day
That last day will be a long one so don’t fret I’ll go away
You are my lucid dream, baby
And I’m still a baby too
Let’s stay together and see this dreamy state through

Okay this is my last one for a little while, but I've had a busy morning with this stuff.


Peace

My angels and demons have found agreement
The war is over in my heart
I am not the good boy
I am not the bad boy
But I am all the same as I ever was before I got here

Desire is the fire that burns to keep us alive
Let your hair down girl
Give your self in to your desires
You aren’t proving anything by repressing them any longer
I can spot you a mile away
Make it work cause there’s no price to pay
Unless its of your own making

Don’t need no words on a page
To find the sage within
Don’t need no cross
To bear without understanding
Its not your cross to bear anymore, its mine

Desire is the fire that burns to keep us alive
Let your hair down girl
Give your self to your desires
You aren’t proving anything by repressing them any longer
I can spot you a mile away
Make it work cause there’s no price to pay
Unless its of your own making

Freedom has made its way to you and now you are free
To just be
Don’t take my word for it
Just listen to the wind and the radio
Watch your TV and see the places you can go
But don’t live a sheltered life anymore
Cause I will take you there
Where the sound and fury becomes your friend
And in the end its all just the beginning

I am burning to be with you always in all ways
If you truly believe I am wrong then run like the wind
My life is great good and better than any I’ve ever encountered
I see how my life shall be
If you punish me for my love of life
I will take it out on you in a loving way that may help you understand
That I am more than just the man you see before you
And you are more than what you limit yourself to being

Drop the character and be your own source
I’ve planted my seeds for years now
Why don’t you plant some seeds and I’ll leave some bread crumbs
To help you follow me home should you want to do so

Sorry to be so prolific yall...lol

The Moment of My Life

(I light up and then) spoken
And I’m in the moment of my life
It’s been rough but
Now I see my light burning so bright

No reason on Earth could keep me here today
I got to keep on moving in my way
All because I never wanna stay
Then I’d just keep on losing
My way

Can you see how my life changes now
Used to be so confusing
In oh so many ways
It’s like I’m a child again
At play

I light up and then
And I’m in the moment of my life
It’s been rough but
Now I see my light burning so bright

I’m in the moment of my life
Yes, I had some coaching and advice
I’m in the moment of my life
I used to feel so strange on this ride
I’m in the moment of life
And taking all the Bull Shit
In stride

Now I’m in the moment of my life
The fears I had about me and you
Fade with gusto into black and white
When I remain another shade a’gray in the light

No reason on Earth
Could keep me here today
I got to keep on moving away
Cause I never wanna stay
Then I’d only keep on losing
My way

I light up
And then I’m in the moment of my life
Don’t try to save me from this side
I’m afraid that I just can’t sympathize


I light up
And I’m in the moment of my life

This moment is everything you have. This is the best of what you have. It is short, no time, and it can be as empty or as full, as you can make it. This moment is not outside or inside of you. It is you, and a whole world is you too. No words can describer it, and your intellect is not able to place a value on it. Through this awareness you are able to learn about yourself. This is a meditation with your eyes wide open, and looking into your inner self. A barrier between inside and outside worlds disappear, and only true you stay in a moment. 

Lena

Okay so it wasn't my last word on poetry, just my last word on metaphor and "out of body" junk. I wrote this about 5 minutes ago and I wondered what you all might think or help me add to it:

Islam is Lamb

You are fighting yourself every time you hurt one of mine
You are fighting against time and that does not exist
The end of the world is the beginning of all that is
Take a moment to realize with your real eyes that you are and I am
We are brothers together
Building Heaven

Building heaven on the scape of NOW;
Think twice, its another day in paradise.
Angels already know without asking how;
Maybe the vegetarian should eat a pizza slice.

A world trapped by rules and regulation;
Moved on because he did not fit in there.
She broke all the rules but lived in elation;
Joy is the judge, king and the mayor.

Paradise, paradise, paradise;
Tis a land without fear.
Being drunk on laughter ain't a vice;
Now, pass me that cold beer!

Life is ours, we live it our way;
Trust the hide but do not seek.
Serving the self is a Pay Day;
Although saints get a bigger peek.

Into the unknown Mystery matter flows;
I find in YOU something that seems new.
Over and under the sun, wind blows;
The book of Acts ain't only played by the Jew.

Kenny's foot is loose but he is free;
Fly like the eagle with Seal.
Open your Capital letter and find me;
Man shant live on bread alone for his meal.

Not your typical poetry, I ain't Shakespeare;
Message in a bottle might wash up on your shore.
I am an individual unit of consciousness, Spear-It;
Boogie boarding on a a wave of less, in the land of the more.

I was playing around this morning and came up with this one. Just started working on it, but if anyone has any feedback I'd love to hear it.

They’re talking on the TV
Telling us corporations are people too
They’ve bought the whole god damned world
And sold us out to boot

I hope my child and all his friends will take it back someday
This place is the place I grew up in
This world’s not one in which I can play
It’s just not the same anyway you look at it
Our beautiful world and gone to shit

You may think my words are harsh and cold
I don’t think my thinking is so damn bold
I just want everyone to all they desire
We all deserve to prosper and set the flames in our hearts afire

We’re going the way of 18th century France
The rich and the poor are gonna dance someday
And it won’t be a dosi doe
The rich seem to get it their way
And the rest of us get no say
The rich and the poor are gonna dance someday
And it won’t be no dosi doe
This revolution will come over us all
Make the world a better place
By taking back the life you were promised when you signed on
The book of life holds your name within it
And you signed on the dotted line
Right before you came into the world this time

If you look real high you just might find
Sitting in the stars, glistening, glistening
Waiting for the band to come
Just waiting for that man to come.
Oh, I wonder...

Slip on down from the sun to climb,
Down to earth and down to things like time,
Because we are all, we are all just lovers,
Born of earth and light like all the others.

If you're talking to the moon,
The moon might sing about the universe
Shouting: "I don't need, I don't need time",
I breathe in time.
Where are we now?
Where are we now?

If you're looking for the river just find the mouth,
It's grinding like gnashing teeth foaming out, foaming out,
Mixing up the hell to come.
Just mixing up the hell to come.

And it's fixing up to swallow me whole.
It's fixing up to swallow me whole.
It's fixing up to swallow my soul.
Fixing up to swallow me whole.

Slip on down from the sun to climb,
Down to earth and down to things like time,
Because we are all, we are all just lovers,
Born of earth and light like most these others.

Where, where are we now?
Where, where are we now?

I was born without a name
A soldier for
The streets they say
This kid's on a mission
Running high on fame of the guillotine
No roots to find and no one to miss him

My head is like a flame
And my eyes were red

Well we all get strange
And we know it
But we're cool with it
And we all get a little bit older
In this day and age
But we deal with it

My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up
My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
It was burning up

Shaking with a fire burning deep inside
Still the politicians they never listen
Blood money was a sound
I didn't care to hear
Of which the politicians they only listen

I became a child of the universe
Reborn into this galactic prism

My head was like a flame
It was burning up, burning up
