The Dogs Of War

giphy

 

Release the dogs of war

Literary beasts, teeth rending

The fabric of personal realities

Digested too long, spew forth.

 

Primal vicissitudes evolved

Transformed by perception, and time

Unleashed, set forth to feed upon

Ravenous souls bereft of direction.

 

Purpose guide my pens blade

Slash life upon this virgin page

Blood stained truth covering

The lies and banalities of this world.

What Matters

 

Why can we not begin each day as if it was our first?

Why do we carry, a dead past forward?

That is gone, and this is this

I greet you anew, as you do too

 

Past never was

Only now

Face to face

Matters

Healing

A sigh revealed

Too long covered

Virtue and sin

Melded to one

Earth and sky

Taste of life

And knowing is

The return of love

 

 

Eternal

 

This moment eternal

Past, Present, and future

Combined

Never in time

Not infinite, as distance

Only here and now

 

Stringing thoughts

One to the next

A line is drawn

From here to there

What never was is

An illusion for us

 

Birth, Living, Death

Always in time

Just not now, someday

Yet, if all of life is here

If it always was

Then maybe, just maybe

 

We were never born

Never as we thought

And never die

All the universe

Contained in this moment

Everywhere is now

 

So we come and go

Thinking we may know

But never what was so.
