Choice

There lies something within the heart
That spends its toil not on fancies or fame,
But rather, a process — from end to start.
Where are my consequences of action?
They rest in realities of things not needing explanation.
All that we have sewn in the past
Is now the process forging today’s situation.
A blemish — a confinement — a realization of truth —
There lies within the deepest corridors of questioning
A freedom that bears for itself all defense of proof.
There lies something within the heart
That spends its toil not on fancies or fame.
It does not want them, and for their elimination, feels no shame.

Love As

On love —
The remembrance of its worth taken always may
Above all remain
Unsurprisable.
Not to suggest
The intolerance of magic,
But rather the realization of love’s power as such great
Vastness
The authority of the world
Truly remains uncharted.
So let us now hold
Oh so deeply and oh so verily,
The exclusive preciousness of a promise:

If but one ticket to heaven
Was to be split between the two of us,

I’d give the whole thing to you.

What It’s Like to Live in Charleston

IMG_2517

The air is not crisp but can tell you still
Of the rouse which may hide behind
The commons and the barren ground
That of the one we may now touch all around.
And with not superstition, but rather
The cough of an older father
Understand finally on a deeper fathom
What it’s like to live in Charleston.

ode to these the deepest feelings of the life worth living

to spill coffee on your hand

while walking down the street
and find yourself listening

to music

with rhythm matched saccadicly to every person’s face

you see.

Wonder What Life Is

Reaching back to the beginning of the story
We may ask ourself how we got to the present page
And what all this stuff is in the middle
Mid-story theme analysis — all so ill-researched
Mid-story theme analysis — all so confirmed under the premise of an illusion
Well the world keeps on spinnin’ no matter what you do to it
And here man is toiling over the playmate game of action and reaction
And he does things because he can
And he feels things that are contradictory to his hands
And he says things because he can
And he feels things that constitute him a lyin’ bastard
And he tries to control all these things around him
And he tries to believe he has purpose beyond this Earth
Well darling there’s a candle on the windowsill
And you can put it out with your hands
But it’s going to keep burning regardless of how you feel about it

Now see here darling
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself

Now see here darling
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself

Reaching back to the beginning of the story
We may ask ourself how we got to the present page
And what all this stuff is in the middle
But darling that’s life — what are words until we’ve read them
But honey that’s life — what is today until after yesterday
The leaves don’t drop off of the trees until the cold tells them to
So there’s a point in every man’s life when he starts to get bored
So there’s a point in every man’s life when he wants something more
And there’s a point in every man’s life when he starts to wonder
Wonder a little more — wonder a little harder
Than he’s already been wonderin’ his whole life
And he wonders what life is
So don’t you be tryin’ to tell me that you’ve never wondered for yourself
So don’t you be tryin’ to tell me that you’ve never had your share of doubt
So don’t you be tryin’ to tell me what lies beyond this fleeting embodiment of flesh
When you haven’t confirmed your own suspicions yet

Now see here darling
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself

Now see here darling
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself

Now honey honey brace yourself
Now now honey honey do ya know what life is
Now now honey honey do ya know what happens at the end
Now now honey did ya read ahead

See here darling
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself

Now see here darlin’ love
Now see here you young soul
This is the problem
You can’t tell me what life is
When you don’t even know for yourself
