Something Old: Poetry penned in my youth.


“Emotion”
ESCAPE FROM INSANITY
deep into ecstasy
TAKING A WORLD AND THROWING IT
far, far away...
ROCKING THE BOAT
an unexpected surprise.
The beginning—when the flower blooms.
The beginning—an illuminating moon.
Both beginning the new mysteries
Of nature...
Of experience...
A POOL OF LOVE
reflecting a desire
CAUSING ILLUSIONS
now and forever mislead
NOT AN EXPLANATION IN SIGHT
eternally unfeasible
SUCH AN EMOTION IS MISUNDERSTOOD—IT BECOMES AN ILLUSION
(very clouded)
forever misled
Come and give this old insanity back to its owner in the “real” world.
Show not one’s desire. HIDE.
For that unexpected surprise will follow `till the death of emotion.


Something New: Poetry penned after my rebirth

How Do I Tell You”

How do I tell you...
the way your presence affects me.

How do I tell you...
your eyes, to me, are shooting stars racing across the night;
making me dream and wonder, cherishing each sight.

How do I tell you...
that my heart leaps at the mere mention of your name.
The thought of sitting near you sends through me, joyful pain.

How do I tell you...
that I pray for your life to flourish and for your light to shine like a beacon,
to all around you.
Unselfishly and unabashedly, sharing you with the world.

How do I tell you...
I don’t require explanation; I understand without a word;
that I accept and care for you right where you are.

How do I tell you...
oh, so many things...simple and complicated all at once.
How can I reveal it; how can I free myself.

And...

How do I tell you...
when I can barely speak in your presence,
of a special something planted and ever growing in my heart.
With every motion from your direction, my heart soars and roars out...
Love.
