Olympus

Olympus lights fires

for Gods clashing for the throne.

Strength is everything.

Mutiny Of The Soul

Waves of anxiety

stress that their currents twist,

creating billows and

storm surges to drown in.

.

Fear is not seafaring,

it’s voyage never calm.

It’s a mere buccaneer

rousing rebellion

.

with cutlasses of doubt.

Pirating certainty,

a pillager of hope

shipwrecking happiness.

.

Marooned spirits dwell on

islands of their unease.

Apprehension is a

mutiny of the soul.

Collective Effervescence 

Collective effervescence

throbbing drums, beating in hearts.

Pounding in their amusement

the primal rhythm joyous.

.

Nature is celebrated,

the starry eyed worship dance.

Barefoot coupling with their souls,

branches sway in unity.

.

Tripping to a moonlit song

in spirited harmony,

ancients carousal wildly

their eugenic kindred bounce.

.

As the night parties with stones

relics hangover the morn.

Sunrise heralds the dawn of

the original ravers.

Vibrant 

Vivaciously ever shining,

Incandescent in auras light.

Brilliant its essence vivid,

Rousing a spirited air.

Always flaring optimism

Natures sight is a coloured joy

To behold the miracle of life’s gift.

The Last Horizon 

Souls afraid are torn between

celestial parallels.

Stars and seas beckoning that

death and life are but kindred

.

entities. Spirits waver

on tempestuous billows,

crescent and irresolute.

A dream drowns, it’s demise a

.

red giant of despair. The

dust residue is fragmented

casting an ominous shroud

disorienting light.

  1. .

The last horizon falters.

Dimensions shift. An essence

evolves in strength of darkness

Hope is reincarnated.

Aura

Energy’s transfusing,

universally it

moves. Auras burn sparking

atmospheric fuses.

.

Sensations emanate

dynamism, it flows

inconspicuously

through shadows, time and light.

.

The emotional force

is current with past and

future bound. Unconscious

it creates a cosmic

.

synergy. Karma is

an empyreal height,

its luminescence a

radiance of fate.

It’s Not My Fault You’re Insecure 

It’s not my fault you’re insecure,

your jealousy’s got out of hand.

I just don’t like you anymore

because you’ll never understand

.

that you despise my honesty,

to your own faults you’re always blind.

Ever attention longingly

unceasingly you seek to find.

.

Perhaps you’ve been devoid of love

as you strive hard to be adored.

But then you give people a shove,

you’re dropping them when you get bored.

.

Problems are blamed on those you use

to boost your ego for a while,

constantly others are miscued

always the victim you’re reviled.

.

The truth is that you’re just the same

as the souls that you criticise,

so take your selfish blinkers off

as ignorance is never wise.
