Poetry: The Pilgrimage

Poetry: The Pilgrimage

by Liam

When we walk, as pilgrims along the road of love

I wear my cloak of gratitude

My sandals throw up dust from the past

Selfishness dissipates

Pain becomes a liberation

Images of where I’ve been and done

Each step, each day

Bringing me closer to God

This appreciation strengthens the substance

Of my soul

Filling every nook and cranny of my life

Bringing me back to where we all began

Over there, on the other side

Towards which I’m again marching

A pilgrimage, to this place called me.

Poetry; The Cure

Poetry: The Cure

by Liam

Love cures the pain

Which pain will continue to create,

Until you allow your eyes to consistently exhale love,

As effortlessly as your body yields to its own scent.

Let yourself be ecstatic in this recognition

For the love you breathe

Is the life you perceive.

Poetry: Friends

Poetry : Friends

by Liam

If words could express the things that I miss,

friends friends friends

You fill that space in my life’s universe,

When we meet, the circles complete

Then, when young in body

Now, still young at heart

We share the friendship

Till forever we part

So let’s live in this moment

Of memories shared, of laughter, of tears, of burdens bared

Raise a glass,

Raise a cheer,

Raise the life we have done

For before us are many,

the days still to come.

Poem: Emergent Me

Poem: Emergent Me

by Liam

When I feel

When I hear my heart

Beating

Strange wonderful & new

It’s you, you know .

Who’s new to me.

Who’s music plucks the strings .

Strung tight across my life.

Lines which connect the invisible.

Threads, a web of connected ideas.

Weave the mysterious meaning.

We all seek to understand,

We all strive to accomplish,

We all try daily to fulfill.

You,

Yes it’s you though.

That has begun to

Unravel the tapestry of what I believe I am.

This discovery

This revelation

This find is monumental.

My watermark born deep,

Deep within the flesh of my DNA .

The true meaning of the me

Hard programmed in helicital patterns.

I’ve always wanted,

I’ve always tried to see.

A blueprint of who I could,

of who I would be with you.

Who catalyzed me emergent,

From the fabric of upbringing .

To the liberated mind of conscious aware truth.

Awake to the now

Aware of the how

Wanting only the really

Truest you.

To hold my me in warm hands and smile.

Poetry: Naked

Poetry: Naked by Liam

As I’ve stumbled forward into today

Clothed in the rags

Tags and ripped pieces of the past

It’s these sad torments

My well known companions of sorrow

I’ll slough off

I’ll now undress

I’ll now strip away

Stand naked with thee

Before my soul

Arms our stretched and cry, “Free”

I am Free

My body beautiful is a gift

From God through birth

My soul chose this place, magnificent to live

My spirit embraces these three

In this communion recognize

How much joy life has in fact given

Us to see

Through that pain

I now have learned to laugh

To be me.

Poetry: The Arc of Love ❤️

Poetry: The Arc of Love

In the arc of a mallet

The form of your love

Shapes me, molds my eyes

In the way they receive light

Warm, welcome embraces which

Create my perception

Craft the vision, the you

Invisible becomes tangible

It’s our lips which first taste the future

The moment carved, sculptured into the fabric of the universe forever

In the arc of love

The form of your perception

Creates me too

Hammers my ineptitude with forgiveness

Straitens my inconsequence with gratitude

This malleability of soul

Is the substance of our consent

The direction of what we mean

The meaning of this which we have become

One

Each a master crafting

What makes us real

What makes us true

Together

Poetry: Insanity

Poetry: Insanity

by Liam

Insanity, upon whose slender lips

My seeking has for so long been lost

My reasoning has for so long

Brought visitations of chaos, times fear reverberate

I knocked, hard loud & clear for so long

Then, when I stepped back, let go

Making space for that invisible door

It swung open revealing

I’d always been on the inside anyway

No marvelous secrets

Just profound recognition.

Poetry: Madness

Poetry: Madness by Liam

Let my soul spill into yours

This intoxication overwhelms me

Carries me to the other you

That one touching stars, weaving rainbows into your hair

This madness whirls me away into an ocean

Losing the words, the last fleeting glimpse

Of who I thought I was

Washed away gone

Purified by wonder, love and your fragrance

We step again upon firm sand

Bathed in foam

Hand in hand

Loves embrace lingers

A moment longer till

Morning breaks finding you shining in my eyes.
