Collective Community Poem: JUST THREE WORDS (THE SCROLL)

Just three words
What are they?
Will they come?
or more silence
Such loud silence.
silence near deafening
SOund(s) of silence...
serene yet maddening
calm camouflaging cacophany
spewed aimlessly randomly
Preamble for rhyming
with excellent timing...
NOW IT'S TIME
Time for Peace
time for forgiving.
Timing the solutions
solution of funk!
destroy the junk!
Materials in Boxes...... Mislabeled sly foxes
discreetly destroying soul
Emerging from holes
BLIND NO MORE
Feeling no less
Need not regress
Need not rhyme
relentlessly wasting time..
......as we glide ....
out of darkness
Through our days.
under Time's thumb
only to understand
We are One...
& the move
2 next level
COULD BE AS
Life is nothing.....
but any time
OTHER THAN YESTERDAY
seems to burn
like devil's azz
ONLY FOR THE
sake of destroying
Cowards seek shelter
cowherds seek cattle
cattle run away
while arsonists play
, suicide bombers explode
Iron hearts corrode...
rust always sleeps
War always weeps...
life always dies
truth sometimes lies
duality, a joke
by any measure
more than mind
more than mine
outside of ours
better than anyone
less than no-one
still going through
through with it
through this dispair
anguish placates me
fear swallows me
fully digesting me
Regurgitating lifeless mass
creating this blackhole
I relegate You
to eternal damnation
through uncanny dreams
of rigid stagnation
& insane screams
Insanity is salvation
salvation is freedom
freedom from oppression
freedom of heart
Freedom from Reality
freedom is incontinence
freedom creates emptiness
~*~emptiness is bliss~*~
Bliss is sacred
release from humanity
Bliss is Maya
Maya is Memory
memory is mother
Mother is Earth
her breath spreads
fully through me
embracing our essence
Joining us together [
sky & sea
flesh and bone
Life & dEAth
tears and breath
opposite and same
creating loving Children
for virginity's sake
Purity of body
devoid of hate
heart of rainbow
mind of saint
sliding withing darkness
fraudulent black heart
dazzling fire eyes
Burning into night
lightening the path
of grim righteousness
to the hot
creating an emptiness
of cosmic fusion
of filthy erosion
and souls frozen
by the midst
of languished sorrow
and shared words
which go unspoken
or sound broken
hanging in midair
forever roaming dead
Is enough said
Love is pain
pleasure involves desire [
enflamed passions rise
flame consumes all
with every stem
in every cell
in every fiber
of my being
living and dying
saving through killing
Love through hate
positive to negative
PEACE NOT WAR!
Live for today
eraze the past
*Be Here Now*
*Baba Ram Dass*
Come back later
LIGHTS ARE ON...
Is anybody upstairs?
stop the suffering
feel the noise
breath the sOUnd
feel no pain
LICK THE GROUND
And live again
only to die
then reborn... forever
life is unmerciful..
suffering through void
man is parasite
life eats death
spreading her energy
hanging the laundry
milking a metaphor
perpetuating the cliche
eyeing the tiger
Hitting the Bong
holding it in
again and again [
world ever ending
war never stopping
sharing different identities
I see me
and my duality
outside of myself
LOST IN SPACE
INTO ONE OTHER
outside of words
Drowning in Sorrow
Waiting for tomorrow
waiting.....waiting......waiting.....
it always comes
until death us April 10, 2005 11:13 AM
part from this
Husband AND Wife...
friend and enemy
LOVER VS. HATER
Loaner against borrower
All the Same
Who's to blame?
YOU AND I
~them & us~
TIME TO CHANGE
everything always changing
remains the same...
altered realities explode
fantansies unfulfilled implode
hardest rock erodes
a mother's lodes
Word leads to word
one more word
Three not four
hard, not counting
Do the math.
the treasures divide
casualties add up
and ideals collide
That Sums Up...
the vast divide
to fight exponentially
we exist unpotentially
letting our goals
dissolve in madness
with no resolve
scentless and senseless
"til we arrive"
We must strive
why oh why?
Because we're alive.
I will survive.
from this suicide
thoughts provoke joke
wheels that spoke
fix what's broke moments, just one after another, like the rush of traffic... a life time that got away... as I lie here... DEAD !!!
