Random Poem:


Breath in
Love, energy, compassion
Warmth, sanctity, expression
Breath out
Anger, anguish, frustration
Chaos, despair, confusion
Mind collides with heart
A slight moment to step into
The spaces far apart
Enjoined forever to renew
Eyes grow heavier
Breathing fades far away from thought
Now much happier
Sinking deeper through modes untaught
Brilliance from within
Touching upon revelations
Not known from chagrin
Fly swiftly past complications
Blinking now and out
Phasing to consensual life
Lost what it's about
While taking part of daily strife
