Word bath
My skin is layered with regrets and confusion
Dry and caked with self-loathing illusion
Profusely deluded,
I step into the awakening waters of a word bath Submerging myself in the soothing warmth
of cleverly crafted concoctions
of redeeming proportions
Self-contained in notions
Capturing with lettered lassos
my undiscovered emotions.
Through hoops of spiraling and spirited motives Resourcefully intended to emotively motivate me
To contemplate and concentrate
I elevate to new levels of creativity
Out of needled pens,
threads of ink link scattered thoughts
Just on the brink of being realized
Sowing together the loose ends
of my forgotten serenity
Did I mean sanity?
Maybe it was the clarity of the sound waves
Drawing out vibratory constellations
Aligning within my mind the stars that I have been Consciously, and unconsciously
Projecting outwards into the skies
Painting hopelessly into wandering lover’s eyes
Only now beginning to hear the reverberations
Of their misleading lies
In the development of the minds eye’s internal structure A foundation for the forming of the
highest rises still to come
These electromagnetic bowties
decorate the lights formally channeled pathways
Into the fanciest elaborations of her spirit
Nameless to those who seek to contain her with words She spins the web of silken song
Through which unseen magic travels along
Clearly defined lines,
limericks and rhymes
Predesigned microchips of ancient wisdoms signs
These symbolic seeds of sacred sound
Planted into the womb of my imagination
Patiently wait as I become the ground
From which they will soon
sprout their profound flowers of
And as the jewel of the lotus unfurls infinitely inward
I am nourished by the cleansing waters
of courageous poets obsessions
Who continue to track the evolution
of earths symphonic progression
The legacy of moonlit nights’
illuminating breathtaking beauty
Is refining itself slowly
Clearing way of laden songs
Sung to mend the wounds of my empty heart
Still echoing the cries
of her unrequited love

Ahh…… such calming waters
