This veiw of life seems to be so young! I feel like you are just starting to experince life... Life is certainly more complicated then this.. but your thoughts and your ideals are very touching! If only people had the ability to  not let their mind speak to itself, as that is surely impossible in and of itself!

What can be more complicated than becoming, what you describe as, the impossible? Complication must be a result of confusion.

 "not let their mind speak to itself, as that is surely impossible in and of itself!"

 Not only is it possible, it is inevitable. The mind and body are bound by time, thus subject to the cycle of birth, growth, decay, and death. At the end of this life, when your body and mind are absorbed into time, history, the past, your mind will do just that-cease to speak to itself. Then who is left?

 You are very right- I am just starting to experience Life.

Mermaid Wrestler

I still hear the tick
of the clock high above
the only bare walls of white

light happy children
run and play
among the rubble of
spent dreams

scattered to four corner
winds blow
this way and that
tossing crisp dry
leaves that yes won't

look sadly back
across divides that slow
separate me
and join all in out or as
tilt the table
 
turns pretty heads or
tails of in time
spent in power of ages
as if one ever

you wait in line so
drawn so straight
or gay abandon you
press the a flesh
in sweaty hands

christian and her son  
draped in her arms
viewing a vatican
floor unexpecting
mermaid wrestler

collect their thoughts
on food stamps
the foot that has to rock
and role

another cigarette
another drink
another day another life
I still hear the tick

My Truth;
 The only Truth I know is I am not this Body, I am not this Mind.

 When the thought arises " I am this body, I am this mind." confusion, pain, suffering, pleasure, all flourish. This body and this mind are what you inhabit. This is Your Body and Your Mind. These events of this world do not occur to you; they occur to the bodies and minds we possess; which are parts of the material world. A soul is the witness that inhabits this body and uses this mind to interpret this "real" material world. This body and this mind say "I suffer. I hurt. I hate. I fear. I am not free. I need. I am this. I am that." This body and this mind are right. It does hurt. It does fear. It does hate. But, You do not because you are not it. You will not hurt when you realize this. Nor can you inflict the same
when you realize this. When you see that you cannot be hurt, you cannot be killed, you will not fear Death. When you see that hate Always leads to more hate, you will never hate again. When you meet fear and hate with open arms and a smile, they are destined to die. They require more of themselves to thrive. Meet fear with fear and it will thrive.

The mind and body must be in harmony with the soul to be of any use for true progress. Studying books, intellectual discussions, etc... are all necessary tools that can refine the mind into a more useful tool. But without the first cultivation of the Real Knowledge, that of which is who You are, these studies of lower knowledge can hardly be useful in the hands of minds and bodies controlling themselves. For True progress to envelop this world, the knowledge of the body and mind must be utilized as a tool by that which You are. That which We are.

 We will end all the sufferings and pains of this world when we realize collectively that we are One. When there are no bodies and minds left to their own device, peace and harmony will flourish. As individuals some may know prosperous times, entire civilizations may indeed know prosperous times, but the times will endlessly continue in the cycle of birth, growth, decay, and death. As One we will all know prosperous eternity.

 When we realize we are not this body and this mind, we can free ourselves from this cycle of birth, growth, decay, and death. If even one person in this world  says "I am this mind. I am this body. I hate. I hurt. I fear Death, I will Die": if even one person believes this, and believes he is an individual, then wars, pain, suffering, birth, growth, decay, and death will prevail.

Believe No man who says you must fear this or you must fear that. He cannot lead you to the freedom you want and he claims to offer. You cannot buy freedom. You cannot sell it, steal it, borrow it, earn it, or win it. You Are It. When even the notion arises that "I cannot do this, I cannot do that, I am not free", it is the mind and the body operating itself. You can do anything. The mind and body have buried the soul, the eternal source of ALL, with guilt, fear, hate, suffering, pleasure and pain. The Soul and Freedom can only be realized when all of the notions arising from "I am this body, I am this mind" cease. When you answer your own question of "Who am I?", All will be revealed.

 Be dilligent. It is not easy to answer this question. You have years and decades of thought, pain and pleasure all working in unison to hide you from your Self. You have only to ask the question "Who am I?". Do not let the mind answer itself. It does not know. Do not look for a book to answer this question. It cannot know. Anyone who says "Follow me, I'll show you the way" has not yet himself found the answer. Simply ask the question "Who am I?" and then do only one thing: Keep quiet. Do not let the mind search the past for answers. Nor let the mind search the future. Do not let the mind speak to itself.The answer is not of words. So do not think the answer will come to you as such. But, you will know it when it comes. It may happen instantly, or it may take the rest of this life, or it may take eternity. But it does not matter because Time does not exist. Any time is the same time. And as such Now is the only time. What ever you want to do, do it Now. For Now you are Free.

OH..... HOW I LOVE YOU!


I have a dream of you, etched deep inside of me... I feel the closeness of your soul within mine..All of my body cries out for you...my heart burns out of control!
 
Every moment of every day I am so lost inside of you, that nothing else diminishes my dream.... I am haunted by your love captivated by it, so entranced that you are all I see!
 
All the troubles of the world pounding at my door but for you my love my heart sings for more!! I love you my love and need you so much my heart beats stronger for thee...
 
Wishing you closer then ever my love, to touch you right now would bring glee! Oh love forever and always my love, I love you my friend I do..don't you see!
 
My heart is aghast at the distance we feel, and the hurt that lies there so very real... but not like the love that burns deep within and wipes it away with a grin.......
 
I love you... I love you... I love you I do, is all that my heart seems to say... remember me darling the one who waits here with a dream of you for someday!!!!   Oh..... how I dream of someday.........
 
I love you so much, Kisses and touch, and smiles for you will I find. As I love you so deep,that my pain I must keep, hidden and far from our hearts... Missing you Darling, and loving so much.... Forever my love my heart sings for our touch.....


Oh.... How I love You!

My Headless Chicken!          
 

Making me dizzy with love , here you are!

Yearning so strongly for you from afar!

Hearing your sweet words fill me,through and through; Words of Joy,like I love you!

Ever pining away for you each day,Your love fills me up and takes me away!

Always remembering me kindly in all that I do, and knowing all the while how much I love you!

Dreaming a dream which must someday come true, my only dream is to be with you!

Lingering memories we make each day, keeping us closer together this way!

Enduring the trials and bumps and contusions, my love for you is not filled with illusions!

Sometimes it's hard to read the right meanings, but in the end we both know that we are not leaving...!

Singing our praises one for another, I am so lucky that you are my Lover!
 
Choosing to be in love from this distance is proof of love and it's very existence!

Honey I love you! You know that's so true, and yes my darling, I know you love me too!

Intertwined hearts oozing love all around, never getting so lost that we can not be found!

Clinging on our love to keep us both sane, and drawing on it to relieve life's pain...

Keeping it fresh and giving it life, our wonderful love carries us through thickest of strife!

Engaging in thoughts known only to us, our love is like good bread, with the perfect crust!

Never ending never dying, never losing this love, knowing always and forever it's Truly,True Love!

Just thought I would share my daydream with you all.

A while back I was walking along listening to a reborn modern classical piece on my discman when I reached the top of a hill I had to walk down. As I was doing so the sun fought through the dark, miserable rain cloud. As it did sun beams hit the watery patches on the ground and lit them up in a somewhat beautiful and awing manner. I was suddenly in a daydream, and at that moment I had taken a couple of hops and glided into the air, I flew down the hill and amongst the buildings. The feeling I had was overwhelming, a sense of freedom and joy, I wondered for a moment in my day dream, how Icarus felt when he and his father took to the sky, the moment when the foolishness entered his heart to fly higher, the foolishness in my heart when I awoke from my day dream. For a brief moment I was free, nothing to hold me back, nothing to stand in my way, to feel the wind on my face as I soared high up to the heavens. I realise now, it was my heart and soul, they are free and they continue to soar, and with that knowledge I can do anything.

Two strides

I saw him today
walking in the rain
rapped assortment
plastic bags of fame
white hair wet and wild
in disarray his eyes red
rimed in plain pain
we exchanged or not
our glance there set
I in self protection hid
He all out there for all

Ignored so we hop a dance
separately together again
unbounded matter he and I
sound of lips part and pop
a word deafens all
all chance all breath
but little one she
who pulls and tugs
my sleeve I wish gone
no donít  speak
in a voice
to loud to pure
to true

Why is that man so old and dirty?
Why is he wearing all that plastic?
Why does he look so sad and alone?

I shake off her fiery grip
brake suddenly free
man so you would to
why?
no two strides ran
why?
are ever the same
why?

Because
they are a gift

ETERNAL HEARTS


Hearts are made of fragile glass!
They shatter and fall to pieces so fast!
Dreams of love and warmth so fine,
all shattered and broken with the passage of time..

Have I been a fool... and lost my mind, and
gave away my heart, and my soul, I can't find...? Love so strong,
and not wrong, and my heart keeps singing the same love song,
over and over again, I love you, I love you, I love you My Friend...

So many feelings are scattered about.. I'm so lost and alone I want to shout.. but only tears keep rolling out...
My lifes is like a joke, a mess indeed, and I can't even think and it's so very hard to breathe..

To say goodbye... I love you so! It's killing me, I know you know!
I need you safe and healthy too, I love you I love you , So please, please, don't be blue....Our dreams will keep me warm at night and I'll not be so scared in the morning light!!

My Heart is with you and you with me.. and there I shall keep it through all of eternity......Please don't fret and worry so.. Just know I say goodbye, but still I'm loving you so, and that is why I am letting you go..!

My Sociopath Cat

My cat is sleek and shiny
Her purr is deep and warm
Always happy never whiney
She stays in from the storm


My cat she looks so calm
Her face is sweet and pure
When she goes shes gone
On my bed she is demure


My cat sits upon my knee
Paws curled in and at rest
Being as good she can be
She is to me the very best

My cat will hunt and kill
Her claws sharp as pins
Creatures cry to her thrill
To a slow death she grins

If this be the last cherry upon the tree
Then itís yours to have and ours to share
But fear not the consumption of the fruit
Cos from itís seed a new tree will shoot

Time will pass, seasons will change
And our tree will continue to surrender to height
And then, a day, weíll eat the fruit
From the tree that from a seed did shoot.

With these words you must form beliefs
That thereís a tree behind the rustling leaves
Itís a metaphor of a life in time
The tree is yours , the fruit is mine

Thank You karen, Thank You Loretta,

yes, sorry mine is a little convoluted I suppose. They are written impromptu as I believe that the first draft is where the real emotion is, it is what has been produced as a direct result of raw emotion. Well, that's how it works for me anyway. It does not work for others but for me it's like a quick fix.

karen, I can only imagine the passion you have inside you.

Hadrian, like Loretta says, they are wonderful pieces. You are a talent with out a doubt.

Ian.. Writing through emotions is the only way I can write.. I don't think your writing was convoluted at all.. It was beautiful.. And I think every human being has the to ability and does possess passion! The extent to that passion may very from one individual to another, but it is there just lying beneath the surface, for others it oozes out all over the place LOL!

Thank you Karen,

It was because you earlier said that your head was clearing that I thought you found my words confusing. In reality, my poems are just Pensťes (thoughts) and so will naturally display some human error in rationale, but i like the irrational way, it's honest !

 To be truthful, these poems are not really for public display, they are just thoughts on paper but when I saw  the amazing work done by you people here I just stepped in and added my contributions.

Really Please don't as I am very familiar with them.. I will be fine.. have to go to work.. If it is still lingering in the late evening I will take something... as then My defences will really be about used up.. I have dealt with them for many days at a time, one continuous one lasted for 4 days... So this is just the beginning, it will go away!!

Gaia have a good day! I have to get  to work.. Go poke fun at Dan and George for me....I will when I feel better eh!! Thank you for your concern..

EMPTY AND DRAINED


So lost and alone, I sit here just waiting by my phone, if it's here beside me , I won't be alone.

Pain is all I feel, trying hard to keep my mind, but so many thoughts and memories I find!

Trying so hard to not be sad...thinking of this love and all that we had..am I hurt am I angry or am I sad?

I can't see past the pain..I feel so empty and drained. I come home and go to bed...can't seem to clear my head...

Writing these words I hoped would help, but the words contents so empty when they're for myself...

OH God help me..... I'm trying to be strong, everything I do seems to be so wrong!

I have failed at everything in my life so far.. I can't make sense of
what I have done...I need to hide my head or run..

What have I done? Why am I here? Wheres my heart and why so much fear?
Why such a cost? Why am I here?

My whole life has been a maze of disarray, should be no different now that's what I say!

Why so hard now to face the pain, it used to be easier when it rained...

Such a fog hanging over my head... tears and hurt and sorrow being bled.

I have no tomorrow my thoughts are all blank..My dreams are shattered and my future looks dank!

Memories remain of love and desire, my hearts still ablaze and my soul is on fire!
