Answered Prayers

My muse as always, is Aphrodite. ~ Shakespeare in Love

my goddess of love, sorceress, divine spirit,

you were there when I needed you most,

when I was lonely, miserable and lost,

drifting aimlessly from pillar to post,

you visited in dreams as a ghost,

and as a goddess lifted me up,

for that I shall you worship,

forever, no matter what,

you live in my heart.

The Dark Night of the Soul

Only out of suffering emerges the strongest souls.

inner torment

jealousy and doubt

the demon soul eaters

visit in the blackest night

darkness lonely frightfulness

another run around nightmares

of lying half-truths dishonest deceit

she was a dark witch circling the firelight

she made it so very easy, and my soul was lost

not all women are witches

but all witches are enchanted women

never accept a kiss from a witch at midnight

you don’t have to be alone

Life is out there waiting for you, so show up.

empowering

better, smarter, stronger

collaborate, persevere, longer

wanting, needing, dreaming, deeper

close friend, partner, motivator, supporter

purpose, planning, decisions, actions, deliver

balance, harmony, confidence, calm, peace, living

so lonely and alone no longer

just a solitary traveller, meditating

In Moonlight Shadows

Just a small town boy lost in one more lonely midnight.

I had lost all control

I need to make true changes

torn and conflicted I had no home

I had been filled with angry resentments

California Nights showed me I need new goals

when night comes again, I’ll be looking at the moon

yet you know I’ll be thinking of all those California Nights

just one more lonely night

but don’t stop believing

My Soul’s Resentments

To be wronged is nothing unless you remember it.

in the darkness of the soul’s resentments

the healing light of dawn still shines

as a thousand spiritual friendships

allow harmony’s true happiness

to heal all our inner distress

the grim, the bad, and the unholy

Wisdom cures so many things, except loves lost forever.

adulteress betrayal cuckold dreaming

erotic flirtatious gratuitous harlot

infidelities juicy kissable lusting

men naughty occult provoking

qualmless rape scary tart

unholy vixen witch

the converse of this post will appear soon

 

Screaming in the Night

Sometimes nightmares become terrifying reality.

~

sex and the stranger has left

just another of those bar boys

the Marconi plays downbeat

yellow moon rules the clouds

alone again after midnight

hurts that nobody even cares

that she’s scared filled with fright

soul peopled with dark dreams

her past sins have found the light

all she has are her worst nightmares

and solitary screaming in the night

Chaos and Terror

Chaos is the Cosmos telling you that you are forever lost.

Turmoil.  Mind like a lost gypsy cab driving through a chaotic concrete jungle.

Dystopia.  Disembarking, it’s so dark and it’s so quiet in the ruins, grey and burned black broken like bad teeth .

Lost.  Then I’m walking on wet cobbled stones, just a bum with threadbare dirty clothes, down at the heel shoes, a body that’s all skin and bones. 

Doom.  The final dark gloom of a Dead Man Walking to nowhere and forever.

Despair.  Now all the good has gone from my life ~ what is joy, what is elation?

Dishonour.  I want you all to know that once I was proud, once I was a man and once I meant something.  But that’s not now.  That’s not now.

Terror.  I need to wake up.  I need to go home.  I need to find friendship again.

Loneliness.  I have no love, only blackness in my heart, my Goddess has gone.

Nightmare.  But, bad memories, just like the seas, live on.

Embrace the Moonlight

I love the moon too much to be afraid of the night.

~

now is the time for me to set myself to rights,

it’s time to stop bemoaning my evil plight,

come out of the dark shadows into the light,

moonlight is better than the blackest of nights,

and that’s where I’ve been, cowering in fright.

~

There is no point in waiting until tomorrow, there is no mileage in procrastination, and mañana isn’t even English.  I need to take action this day.

There have been things in my life I have not understood, or have chosen not to understand, or have chosen to ignore ~ and these things are now coming out of the darkness of my deep subconscious into the light of my conscious awareness.

Recently it has all been a bit intense, and at times I’ve struggled through cognitive dissonance, not knowing who I am, or what I want from Life.  But I have been shocked from complacency by both my friend and my Goddess.  Today, I am blessed with a powerful and strange energy which has allowed me to make a brutally honest assessment of myself.

This intense, powerful, strange energy is allowing me to make changes within myself I have not previously had the power to achieve.

Yet, I know that any change I attempt to make from within my personality, my id, and my ego, should be for the greater good or it will never work.  I have had far too much help to be selfish and make changes that will only benefit myself.  But, as I improve mine own self, it will reflect in every aspect of my world and my life.

As I give to the world, so I shall receive in return.

As I walk from the darkness into the moonlight, my life and my world will change for the better.  I have realised that to cower in fear in the darkness is to stray from the true warrior’s path.  I thank my friend and my Goddess for that new awareness.

Isolation and Loneliness

People are lonely because they build walls for themselves.

~

Do you live inside a prison of your own making?

Do you remember building those fortress walls?

A wall of protection, are you looking for an opening?

Are you happy  living in your empty, echoing halls?

Are you trying to find a way to freedom, escaping?

How dark and lonely are your clouds, cliffs, and hills?

No use running, happiness is too far away for running.
