From Mystic Sands


cosmosCome my beloved
rest long within
the ethereal reaches
of my haven
within my sanctuary
rest your wickedly disconsolate
mind and so lay in repose
absolve yourself in shadows
cast for you
renew yourself in
the mist of my creation.

Crush me with your suffering
and your broken dreams
and your histories and your
deadliest deceptions
those cunning slayers of
all your hopes
so as I cast spells from
my dying contemplations
my terrible meditations
far West
I can obliterate them
annihilate their affect
vanquish their theme.

Envelope me in your angst
in your sorrow and your grief
as I lay dying
behind black embers
buried in the debris
of my decaying magic
ignite my cold conjurings
into vivid imaginations
into vibrant vagrancies
impress upon me
your utter depravities!

Suffocate me with
your inglorious sufferings
that I might ever
fixate on them
ruminate their demise
fashion my incantations
while I sleep
in the furthest
reaches of my
dread desolate world
while I sleep
in my secret realm
that ancient city
forged from mystic sands
which drift far and wide
far beyond the sphere of
creations glorious cosmos.

  1. The emotions this evoked in me are complex and compelling… Initially, I felt “oh man, I wish I could find a guy that got me like this…” then it was “oh man…this is exactly why everything always felt screwed up” So much feels natural and right, even though realistically, you turned poison into poetry. I can say, “oh it’s so dark”, but in truth, I feel hope. I feel possibility. When pain can be painted into the masterpiece you created, the beauty of your life has assuredly just begun. You created a true yin and yang, deeply moving and powerful. Thank you for this, I needed it today!

    1. You are way too kind! It is meant to be the ultimate expression of one loving another so much that he is willing to absorb her entirety and take all his magic to turn it into nothingness do that only peace and love remain, and in so doing the irony is that his own darkness is removed as well…in case you were curious lol. You pretty much got it

      1. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the spin I gave that took me on a slight tangent was knowing, deeply, that I must be secure in myself or the darkness would consume – not create. The selflessness you describe is so beautiful, but hinges on the fact that you must have self in order to be selfless. That’s how you made me think and I LOVED that ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Again I do appreciate that not only do you find my deep meanings, and get them, but that you care enough to make me feel special about it, and that means so much to me, thank you. That you get something from my work affected immeasurably, keeps me writing

    1. Thank you Neg. One of my few poems I worked over many revisions. Usually I just try to get them posted too quickly without revision. I chose each word, each meaning, each image, very carefully. Thank you for your appreciation
