The Spirit is a physical being
The Soul holds her hands
The mind binds their vows
Uniting mythical lands

Bringing to life
And giving body to
Phenomenons long unseen
By those hearts untrue

Seeing is not believing
Manipulation loves the eyes
Only the pure in spirit
Can deviate from the lies

The Spirit smiles a knowing smile
Knowing her invisibility makes her no less
She wears power and strength
It flows about her as a dress

She hides not
But remains unseen
Living her life as a legend
As if a floating dream

She is not in your life
But your life in her merit
Even the Soul
Bows to the Spirit

So seek her with clouded eyes
For until then you shall not see
And until without assumptions
In blind darkness you'll be.

Great Love afresh and new
Rising with the morning dew
Leads me on a winding path
Blind to all hate and wrath

And love a wispy memory
With colors I simply can't unsee
I remember with a wistful grin
Hoping for sight
Around the bend

This love afire
Still burns aflame
In my soul
Remains the same

Bringing faith
Of things unseen
Of ghosts and pasts
And hillsides green

From Dry Bones

From these dry bones I rise
Singing your praises evermore
From the ashes of sorrow
I reach for you Lord

From the tears I'm drowning in
I strive to find you God
Even though the land
Of evil servants I trod

When I feel lost and broken
You remain the same
When I lack courage to stand
You are a lion untamed

When I hide trembling in fear
You stand strong and true
When I feel broken beyond repair
You say you've got the glue

Eloquent I may not be
But your word is filled with love
When I am inadequate
You guide me from above

An innocent face
An untamed soul
A fire in her eyes
And grace in her bones

A quick wit
And ready grin
A sharp mind
Drawn to sin

Both evil and good
Both harsh and kind
A perfect bond
Of body and mind

A minds eye
Limits her not
She spreads her wings
Beyond all thought

You know what's said
Of judging a book
A cutaneous shell
She long ago shook

So watch her soar
On a myriad of wings
Searching for always
The substance of kings

Depression's Kingdom

Chilling sweats
Rancid dreams
Hearts of horrors
Groveling pleas

Lingering memories
Souls in pain
Thoughts of dreams
Long ago slain

When in the midst
It's all to be seen
Hunger for peace
Meets gory scenes

This kingdom is where
Depression meets the past
And tethers itself
To fears made to last

Where abuse is rewarded
And the abused are mocked
Where hate abounds
And evil men flock

Leaving hearts pounding
In agony and fear
Hoping not for
Things once held dear


Share Your Story

Is silence
Not violence?
Are hidden tears
Not wasted years?

If you can change
A single life
By being vulnerable
And sharing strife

Are you not
An angel leashed?
A single hope
To tame the beast?

A beast of pain
Of hurt, and sin
Of tormented confusion
Sewn deep within?

If you can bring
One person relief
Is it not worth
The dreaded grief?

For smiles hide well
Lack of contentment
Your sorrow, my friend
Can filter resentment

So share your story
And tell it well
And in purpose
You will dwell


To "It"

Shriveled skin
Crackling bones
Drying souls
Dermal holes

All the things
Pertaining to
Death and pain
Are wholly you

You take joy
In scattered dreams
You smile in triumph
At assaulting schemes

A beating heart
You don't possess
Rather you hide
Behind sweet caress

Portraying yourself
As a caring soul
When in reality
You're hard and cold

You gain your energy
From decaying smiles
Drag begging hearts
Down gravely miles

Death is too sweet
For creatures like you
Thank all that is good
You assholes are few

I hope you find
The fulfillment you seek
But more than that
I hope now you peak

So that latter life
For you is hell
Because you no longer
Can cast your spell

And no longer will you
Wreak havoc and pain
Living only on
Memories of the slain
