Eventually

    Loves tide will roll back out, and

           My time will be up.

La mayoría de nosotros los hombres tenemos una etapa de rompecorazones.

Yo tuve la mía, y pasé por varias fases: el creía que nunca nadie le iba a decir que no, el romántico empedernido, el empalagoso, el celoso...y conforme fui madurando, las cosas fueron cambiando.

Al rompecorazones, llegó también quien le rompiera el corazón, quien también le pusiera el hand break, quien le dijera que no, quien le pusiera los pies en la tierra, quien le mostrara a decir lo que primero le pasara por la cabeza, hasta quien le fuera infiel...

Al final aprendí a abrirme y dejar que las capas de armadura cayeran al suelo, permitiendo ver que lo más puro lo llevaba por dentro.

Ahí cuando alcancé esa etapa, ...

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

It comes and it goes
    Each time taking more of me
          As it flies away.

They say when you see a cardinal, a loved one who has passed is visiting. It's beautiful and I love seeing them, but when they fly away, it's like losing you all over again #mom #FreeToFly

I hear their voices

     As the hallway calls to me

          But no one is there.

Lo peor de mi siempre ha sido mi desesperación. La ansiedad del cómo saber, del cuando estará, del ver el final antes de llegar a la mitad, de sentir la piel antes de si quiera acercarme a ella.

Es así, y estoy enterado desde siempre.

La pasión me consume y yo me entrego en brazos abiertos, con las defensas apagadas, con los sentidos aturdidos.

Con el pasar de los días y la rotación de la tierra, aprendí a querer al preámbulo, entendí lo fascinante de ello, y creo que me terminó encantando más que la finalidad de las cosas. Sin tenerles miedo, pero aún conservando esa decanyente ansiedad que consume.

Siempre fui torpe para las introducciones, sin embargo me hice dueño de las mismas. Desta...

Since the epoch of sunken monuments
of forgotten gods,
all trades and professions that are inherently dangerous
are dominated by the blood of young men
who learned to exchange their expendable souls
for currency.
In spite of this, our guild was as varied
as patchwork;
there were young mercenaries, yes,
but they shared tables with the blind,
with ascetics,
with mothers in the grips of child loss,
with the destitute,
with elders who outlived their tribes,
with victims of unusual blights,
with the deaf and illiterate,
with inebriates who were betrayed by their beloved,
with wandering ronins,
with scholars who were driven away from their villages,
with good men whose earnestness...

OLHOS DE PIERROT

E eu quero tudo
- Todos -
De ti:

O pirata
O redentor
O eunuco

O menino azul
O louco
E o vagabundo

Aquele que invade
O escuro,
O lobo
A ovelha
E o fruto

Não importa:
A todos eu acolho,
A todos eu escuto.

Talvez eu ame um pouco mais
Um ou outro.

Mas sendo eles todos teus
Hei de amar a cada um deles
Como o mais sábio dos deuses
Um dia nos prometeu.

Quero que sintas, livre
O amor mais raro que já dei
E também o que ainda não tive,
Quero que não temas
Empunhar espadas
Ou revelar tuas cicatrizes

Quero que o meu querer
Jamais queira mais
Do que a luz nos permite,
E que no meu colo
Sempre encontres a pura seiva
Do que não te define
Mas que sempre te defende...

Eu ...

Puedes despreciarme hasta la muerte, pero aún te amo.  Siento mucho todo lo que he hecho mal que te lastimó.  Sé que estás diciendo que ya me has perdonado.  Tal vez un día en un universo alternativo pueda hacerlo bien.  He trabajado tan duro para no ser una pestilencia para ti, pero mi alma todavía anhela por ti.  Realmente espero que estés bien.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Scattered like the waves
Crashing overlapping
Seamless as the sky in mourning

The roadmap to where
I found myself
Got lost

The tracks I left
In the snow
Lie buried

I looked up
And my face had changed
My eyes encircled  with pain
Teeth broken
Gums bleeding
Nose running
Stomach churning
The world steadily rotating
Without my concern
Or well wishes

I see all the people
Scrambling around frantically
Chasing another man's shadow
Gorging themselves on fanciful things
Satiating themselves at the expense
Of another below them

I have even seen one
Knock a man off a ladder
So he could ascend to the top
Alone

I've seen a man surrounded
On all sides
His troubles confront him
As he points to
A ...

... two years ago I was free, , independent, inspired and ready. Then I met you... it was fun and exciting. I knew I was playing with a very dangerous creature. We built a bond over time and we had an understating I took to heart. I cherished it and wrapped my heart around you and your words and protected them with every vibration of my being.
...one year ago I was struggling to mend the festering gaping wounds left by your claws, devastated and lost I remembered I love you. That means I gave my word.
... two years later those poisoned claws have torn through that calloused scar tissue around my heart, one last time.
... this is the last time. Not because I can’t withstand the pain, but yo...

Idk what to title this
-------------------------
I have written about love
A thousand times too many
I have writted about the loved
And even the lover in times
When I did not have any
-
I have written about follies
Of hearts that turned to stone
And those about another’s love
And even those of my own
-
My back on a cold floor
I stare out an open window
As the sky weeps some more
I write about love and sorrow
-
Of years and tears that came
Seems all I have are scars to show
Yet not all these the eyes can claim
Some matters only the heart will know
-
I have learned that love is outward
When one gives and gives more
No expectations, never inward
You never ask what is in store
-
For not all can l...

The Sound of My Soul

My star blueprint
Speaks of Passion
And desire

My divine imprint
Echoes through
the ethereal
Amplifier

Listen to the preface
Of my Soul

A Soundtrack
Down The
Rabbit hole...

Cuz in the end,
It’s always
Rock
N
Roll

The sound of lyrics
And music
Fill my soul

Giving me the Gift
To play another role

To Be authentically me
In a LOVE that’s free

My daily quest and ultimate goal
Is becoming ONE with my soul

Creating my Space
Sacred and divine
My own sanctuary
A heavenly design

Making my reality
Peaceful with flow

My dream artist studio
For imagination to grow

I am eternally blessed
With Amazing grace
Learning how to manifest
My emotions take 1st pl...

I am withdrawing
and going within-
I am longing
for an interlude
of gentleness.

To
Those
who
Choose
to
Judge Me:

I want to let you know that I do not take any of your hateful comments, hard stares or complete avoidance to heart.  I just don’t take any of your gossiping and complaining (about me), personally. It has become a daily part of my existence to “emotionally detach” myself from the toxicity emanating from human kind.  So your attempts to try and make me feel small or be small were smashed even before that thought crossed your 3D frame of mind.

Although the annoyance of sharing a space with another who clearly is not your my biggest fan is not on my top ten list of “faves”....,
I swallow the thoughts that my ego feeds me and I spit out the illusions that ha...

Hoy te vi de nuevo, hace mucho tiempo que no te veía, que no sabía nada de ti, bueno, al menos hoy supe que seguías vivo. Es gracioso porque solo vi una fotografía.

¿Atreverme a hablarte? Naah, eso ya no estuvo en mente. Aunque, no puedo negar que sigues haciendo que mi corazón lata con fuerza & que pensara todo lo que voy a escribir.

Lo siento, mi irracionalidad hizo que me cegara pensando que actuaba con racionalidad. ¿Cómo una persona consciente es capaz de echar a la basura las oportunidades que le presenta la vida?

Me choco con eso siempre, cada vez que reflexiono sobre lo que he vivido, eso siempre llega. La vida, lo que soy ahora, hubiera sido muy diferente, pero, ¿para bien? ¿Pará...
