the unauthorized 'Let it flow...' poetry thread!

Dissolve the mind into the mutating river of the void, check your hats and car keys at the door behind you, dive into the flower's vortex and open it, peer inside with infinite enthusiasm, and yearn to see more, relax and enjoy the show.....let it flow.....

Go go go, don't stop for the traffic cop, leave him counting change at the donut shop, ignore paragraph 37 of page 2 if you've got any mind to be and do, don't worry about what you don't know just remember to forget and let it flow....

you left me cold with my tear on your cheek, i had to run faster to keep up with your time. decades go by, you get older, but i stay the same- never knowing if i should look up or down. will you watch over me, catch me in your nest or will i dive into your green and shield myself from my own mistakes.

i walked down the quiet streets on a saturday morning limbo, dreary eyed and pale faced sidewalkers watch from their stands, grouped and huddled together and i hear myself from behind trying to get out of their eyes and minds. i catch the 42 down to the beach, early winds rub away at the cobblestone wall and i smile for that brief second, because i can feel it trying to rub me away too, into a fine golden dust that glistens in the sand.

Let it go, let it flow
Move on with your life and act like you know
Been on my last breathe, been between life and death
but I gotta let it go, can't deal with the stress

-herbalizer

Through the corridors of metaphor
What else are we living for if not to create
Fiction and rhyme?
My purpose is to make my soul
Rhyme with my mind
Mind over matter
Minds create matter
minds create fiction
As a matter of fact
As if matter were fact
Matter is fact
So spirit much be fiction
Science fiction
Art fiction meta fiction

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

Wallowing in a mess I made yesterday,
it hardens quickly encapsulating my body,
I find no help from the outside,
I find my ego letting itself slide to the side,
afraid of this oncoming undertow,
the roaring flood cracks and booms as it rushes for me,
I stand and wait for its blistering take on me,
it's coming closer....soon, now,
will be the time,
I look at my fate with unrevered awe,
I see this inevitable destiny doing what it must do,
it comes for me, it asks for me,
it yearns for me, it begs for me,
it is upon me.....
and I look up at the crest of its shimmering waves of reason,
an infinite liquid mirror showing itself to me in all of its being,
I let it take me down.

Streaming through the Vortex
In a state of inner flux
Manifest the outer realms
Invoke upon as one
Masquerades become unplugged
Corroding lies untold
Streaming silence, deafening
Foretold but never sold
Seperation, such a veil
Living such as told
Chaos Yeilding
Neverending
On this cosmic soul

Drifting through the astral plane
We understand the omniscient
Agitating suffer's reign
We reminisce in cogitate
Searching now
We go within
To find ourselves again
Thrusting deep
Into the veins
We crystallize
The matrix
searching now
We find again
To live
and let it flow

Building up mirroring walls and hiding this identity
Closing in, so that I may go inside
Sinking ever lower into a vice of my own making
Blaming others for how my stomach turns
Feeling superior over these lowly slow grubs.
Recognizing my faults,
Seeing how I have succumbed to this illusion,
but, no more.
I can't breathe, I choke on this body,
I'm suffocating, breathing in cold remnants
from clouded footprints behind me,
I crumple down, face in my holy cup of hands,
Paining at getting a breath
sucking in panic and depression.
I have to hold on,
for my own sake and others,
I must wait this out.

No ones alone, be it by choice
lonely alone, except for hte voice
the voice of the dead so far yet so near
the voice of the dead that no one can hear
where is this voice that comes from the dead?
the dead voice is flowing from nobody's head.

*L* sorry i just wanted to make somethign up so i could be cool

This lonely distraught man.

Someday, somewhere,
I'll get what I desire
Someday, somewhere,
I'll get what I deserve.

If only she'de realize the treasure within me.
If only she'de realize the happiness she's missing.
If only she'de realize that I have feelings too.

Stop playing with the heart strings
Of this lonely distraught man.
I can't take it anymore.
Because I love you and I need you.

I can only offer what I have,
That's the loving heart of an ordinary man.

The weight threatens my stronghold,
Cracking the stability beneath me,
The pressures ripping at my shell.
Narcistically reaping for the light inside,
But its viewpoint is from a shady angle
blurred from dangerous misconceptions
boasted upon its cynical stand.
I watch from my humble knoll
Attempting to feel certain I am of a separate nature,
I just see the mistakes and see ahead
that I don't follow those shadows,
but to realign the path I must make it see,
Meet eyes to eyes and balance the symmetry
so that we may walk unapprehended
by fallen guards defending their own.

Brother, I love you unconditionally
Please open your eyes
All is forgiven
All is for you
We are all connected
Now let the memories pour through.

You will know within time
Coming upon the transcendence of time
Living in the now
everything is here
See it for your sake and find it,
with your fucking eyes,
you blind fuck!
Humble yourself
don't take offense,
crucify your ego,
so that you may realize
what has been here
waiting for you all along.

Fly Again

Oh, so long ago,
I met a sweet, young girl
Gave to her my world.

She never really cared,
Never really dared,
Let her love flow.

I loved her then,
I love her still.
I know that I
Never will...

Fly again.


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

    #512863 - 01/07/02 04:38 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

here is n e-mail ive just now written to a dear assosiate of mine, take of it what you might. i felt like sharing


aaa here we are. well were to begin?

im now at a crossroads of sorts, with you as my humble unwitting witness
i pass from one page to anoter.
allow me to bring you up to date,
i have just smoked the last cigarette in my pack before the wish ciggarette.
this last ciggarette was the "thinking" smoke that one takes and thinks about what ones wish wil be when one finally smokes that inevitable wish smoke.

never before to me has a wish smoke seemed so finate as it does today
one might chose to smoke forever or until the end rather than decide upon a single unmistakeable wish from a real person ...

ive yet to smoke that last cigarette. yet to make a wish... and once i do, there it is, to be granted or whtever nhapens to wishes made on cigarettes.
it sits in my pack. mocking me to be smoked.

and so i reach for it, pulled from its casket of tinfoil and red cardboard, and i look on it, the last of many who fell for reasons no one can possibly remember.. just a ciggarette.

and i am to make a wish?
one wish?
like that?

what would any of us do? would we wish for right and whatever we knew to be just?
no, to make such a wish would be selfish, because we know nothing and are but fools to make wishes and hope them come true....
but still.
if they could?
if one could light a ciggarette with a wish that had to begranted because its the last damned cigarette in the whole pack! well,
if i diddnt make awish now id really spoil alot of big talk would I?
but i want to smoke it! and i cant without making a wish.
and maybe i really cant think of what to wish for right now.
so here it sits, like a fig fat stupid stick
and i think to myself, perhaps its best not to wish and let time flow as it may.
but then i say, NO im smoking that bitch!
and so i am now smoking it, and ive made a wish this day a wish that can not be taken back.
and im stuck with it.
but i dont dare tell you the wish. no no
if i did, it might not come true :)


~~~mitch

ill reguile you farther for the universe has ironies yet....
that wish that i made already puts me in a spot
i must be true for it to be true.

and now i find ive left a soul behind
one i care for deeply, one who was an important partof the wish, but sadly, not the direct recipient of said wish.
one whom i must hand my shame to lest i conceal it and be tormented by the deceit it represents unto the hereafter.
one whom is so beautiful, and deserving.ofsomething
something that i canot provide.
simply cannot, it is not mine to give and if it was then i would, but i cannot and there it is.
so, sadly and with deep remorse i face he music and home it can sing a requem until anther mnstrel passes to make melody again

Luminous beings flowing through the night
The process which the frequencies take flight
Another branch of energy is chained
Flowering as petals in your brain

Sent through time - To survive
Memories are coming clear
A separation from the fear

We are one - In the sun
Drifting through eternity
A single formless entity

Dreams ~ that penetrate your mind
Slowly - enter from behind
This vision echoes into time
The final step, the final sign

We have seen - Everything
Rhythm flowing perfectly
An object of infinity

We are one - In the sun
Drifting through eternity
A single formless entity

Spontaneous Astral Projection
The limits beyond time and space
A trek through a higher dimension
A journey that we all must face
Saturated with ecstacy
Awakened entity
A cosmic protege
Encircles all
Choose your decision
The outcome will follow
Make sure you are certain
The rule is instant karma

why am I sitting at this computer still
with all the life I have to fill
wasting my time with philosophy
trying to relay to others how I see
all should gather for the common goal
take life as it comes and let it flow
