Eyes of a Child

In the distant memories of love
And lack thereof
I remember so vividly
How it felt to have love
Come and leave

Innocent and beautiful meaning
Painted subtly
In colors of casual truth
Pure loves intent disguised by youth

They remind me of a picture
Unlike any that have
Stood before me
In the eyes of a child
In your eyes like a child

Every night that
I lay down my head
I feel haunted
Beneath what magnifies
How I sleep
In a bed of love
My heart’s conceived

Still I have no desire to erase
Or to replace
What I learned from
Taking that step
I love more and more
And with every broken heart
I grow in depth

And they remind me of a picture

Nothing will be able to chase
My heart away
Or cause it to break
Too many times because
A fire inside
That grows deep and wide
Fills the left side
Fills the right side
With a pure love
Of more than enough
Take what you want
And I will be here
I will be here

To remind you of a picture
Unlike any that have
Stood before you
With the eyes of a child
In your eyes like a child

Devil Crossed

The devil crossed the nine of wands
Chained to negatives alas
In desert country
Even cuffed in brass
Probes against resilience
Kicking up the courage
Was his test of faith
In a dark unholy bath

Seven swords of past betrayal
A king of intellectual power
Pages written for a novel army
Outcomes plague the midnight hour

Popularity contest for six
As the pentacles approached
The magician made a chariot
Fit with horses ten fold forth

Expand the feathers

Silence speaks a thousand words
A magic wand can say much more
The battle between angels
Happening on a hellbent floor

Fire and smoke
Can blind the best intentions
Without a rope the tug of war
Has no tension to resolve
A wicked trance an oozing sore

The serpent slides along the sand
The hierophant calls judgement too
There are good and bad folks out there
How will the shield protect the truth?

In love and death

Some will use the blade for light
Some will use the quill for dark
Watch the clock of these behaviors
When the magic hour stops

It’s a jungle out there!

All illusions will dissolve
Fall away unveil the star
Bright of hope above the slope
Machette through the Amazon
Pluck the forest of deceit
Absolve the personalities
Seeking the roots
That always supplicate
Pure love
