an ipassioned sun.
Arms stretched to the sky,
Hate locked deep within,
Eyes searching for love.
I’m unsatisfied by untruths that dwell
And deceits that spread.
I have nothing but bones and ligaments,
wrapped up in skin to offer a world cruel and distasteful
that seeks my demise round every corner I turn.
So I speak to the abysss.
I say hate your hate,
Love your love.
Wherever you see the light know that darkness follows behind.
If you fall, do not drown in the earth.
Cos man was made to fly and to fly you need wings.
And even though this flesh was made of dust,
I assure you your wings were made in the heavens.
So get up and reach out.
Inhale the clouds in each breath
and feel the sands of time give way at your feet.
When you speak, speak as if God lived in your vocal cords.
I assure you he does.
If you proclaimed that there be light,
this world will part its curtains
and rays of golden burning helium will descend and light your path.
Or it might be gaze of frozen crystal
That traps your soul.
But you have to proclaim it first,
Cos words are keys to unlock this universe.
When you find a lover,
Cradle them in your arms and line their skin with your kisses.
Love your lover as if nothing else mattered.
Cos when you sink so deep into someone that they become your everything,
you’ll find shades of them in way the rain falls and the gazelle runs.
You’ll find them in the cracks in your wall
and the monotonous drone of the photocopier at work.
But be careful to not hold your lover too tight
Lest you choke them to death with love and find your whole world crumbling.
I assure you it is best to let love go and come as it pleases.
To not lock it up in a jar like a firefly
Or put in a zoo where all its wild and rageful instinct is tamed.
I assure you, love is truth and truth is not to be caged.
Learn from this world in which untruth dwells and deceit spreads.
Let your eyes search for love
and lock your hate deep within.
Stretch your arms to the sky and hold on to the impassioned sun
as it travels along the ocean sky.
