License To Live

“For you, with you, beside you~I’ll go with. Ask. Yes”

River_1507

Stop wanting
what’s possible~
the ordinary;
herd’s mentality.

Covet the unattainable.

Commit.

Conceive paradise;
life extraordinary.

Life ignores victims~
preys to foolishness;
imbeciles in waiting.

Waiting to live
wanting to love.

Empty.

Hearts ache
for universes un~chartered~
the unknown.

Unlock your  heart.

Long
for what’s
invisible
impossible
improbable
unimaginable
unthinkable.

Ignite worlds upon worlds.

Wander with soul
to places
yet to learn their names.

Where
fragile mind can’t grasp
clouded eye can’t behold
burdened body can’t entangle.

Gather together
fragments of a soul~
scattered;
once upon a time
shuttered.

Birth what has yet to be.

Die to desolation.

In despair beyond despair
lies life
lives love.

Bliss incomprehensible
joy unimaginable
rapture beyond rupture.

Heed
urgencies
claiming you.

Get lost
never to be found.

Allow this odd stranger
to hold you
in thrall.

Enthralled.

Under a spell
beyond salvation.

Live!

For you
with you
beside you
I’ll go with.

Ask.

Yes.

The Trial By Choice

“Love is life, and life is lived~in love.” Say ‘yes’ no certainties, zero guarantees.

Dear God, where am I going?
Dear God, where am I going?

The journey back to me~
a we
I have yet
to fully see
is fraught with feelings
~uninvited
a gentle muttering
~uninterrupted
a heart flutters
~unexpected.

A fork in the road,
a street otherwise straight~
twists, turns, transforms.

“Where am I going?

The crossroad of choice
creates chasms,
begs closure,
demands eyes that see,
ears all attuned.

Fearing heartbreak,
dreading crushing heartache~
will you say ‘yes’
to a love
that may not be?

‘No’ to songs never-ending,
chanting despair,
threatening torment?

“Who’s going with me?”

Choose ‘no’
perhaps peace aplenty~
the sleep of the eternal dead,
the coward forever damned.

Never lay claim to life
for you have never lived.

Love is life
and life is lived~
in love.

Say ‘yes’
no certainties,
zero guarantees.

Merely the glimmer of light,
please don’t fade too fast.

A readiness,
uncertain willingness,
relentlessly agree~
Yes!
to a future
too faraway to see.

To my foolish past~’thank you;
my pulsating present~’it is what it is’;
a still veiled future~
yes indeed,
bring it on!

Death By Ecstasy

Hibiscus
Hibiscus By Fe Estrada-Gerona

 Forever dream the dream
Eternally be
Falling in love
Deliciously insane
Desperately claim
Thou art mine.

Perish with love
Crumble in flames
Yearn
Burn
Hide your heart in shame.

Vow
I will
Never
Ever
Fall
Out of love
Ever again.

You squander life
Unless you are
Consumed
Frenzied
Forevermore
Deliriously

Always be

Forever stay
Falling in love.

Ecstasy

Madness

Exquisite.

Just Another Cliche′

Swing
Child On A Swing

Choose not the cloister
When the world’s your oyster
Limitation’s just a gag
Turning you into a hag.

Let not spirit be bound
Clamped, closeted, chained.
Destiny was never meant
For a chosen few.

This, you always knew.

Seek not one life
Measured in today’s outcomes
Nor tomorrow’s promise

Always and ever
You’re given the choice.

Neither give up on life
Nor let it defeat you
Though your days
Are marred
By nothing but strife.

Rather
Ask not
For the world’s permission
To boldly go about your vision.

For every ounce of pain
You most certainly gain.

A single inspiration
Is not enough motivation.
Seek ye therefore passion
In all ways or fashion.

And last, certainly not the least,
You and I remain free
If we let it each other be.
