to find god
one must know
how to lose
sense of perspective
see things as
they are not
living by intuition
allowing the fates
control of destiny
following insanity’s call
to rupture idols
and embrace solitude
as the cloak
of every religion
is burned away

beautiful creature
to pure
for life
living lonely
among things
ungodly corrupt
your soul
sits above
all this
glowing bright
in darkness
divine being
of flesh
and bones
and grace

the heart
in winter
is warmer
than one
without love

so important
yet maligned
in culture
and experience
to want
is habitual
to receive
is atypical

great ecstasy
lies inches
from despair
a world
of difference
and indifference

red hair
blue smile
salt tears
down cheeks
of porcelain
my girl
your pain
may linger
know though
I am here

the fireworks
are over
left with
the ashes
of fantasy
the smell
of sulfur
through streets
as empty
as me

your face
was forgotten
any memories
lost forever
those words
we said
during nights
of communion
simply whispers
from ghosts
who died
long ago

nature is beautiful

but meaningless

when compared

to the beauty

within the self

our minds

hold colors

the eyes

cannot comprehend

our souls

are animals

caged by habit

so perceptions

of all worlds

are false
