Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Between the what if’s…

That magical dimension,

Akin to delusions or psychoses.

Where one holds to a tiny thread of subjective reality,

A confirmed impossibility,

Only in the realm of gentle probability,

From the mind of one, single, beautiful, intelligent, creative, unique, human being…

 With Sway…

Life’s path, shaky.
Edges contort with uncertainty.
Mistaking vertigo for safety,
Due to its familiarity.

One step at a time, mere cliche.
Each step is taken with sway,
Time is set on perpetual replay.
No forward progression, continual delay.

Eyes half open for fear of the truth.
Masked reality with everything to prove.
Lucid while dreaming, collecting real wounds.
Questioning the concept of being bulletproof.

In The Reflection…


Am I like you or are you like me?
Whose reflection do we see?
Lost in wavering introspection,
Striving for identity.

Merged with passive consent,
Which of us is the thief.
Stealing from the real, to feed the false
Monopolizing the mirror’s company.

It’s hard work just to see,
Self scattered in the intangible.
I seek fluidity in self-unification.
A connectivity that’s palpable…

Psychedelic Pause…


Psychedelic trees,
Growing in twisted motion,
Toward the unreachable sun.

Waves of color and light,
Smearing reality’s canvas,
Breathing oxygen needed to run.

Eyes open or closed,
One can’t know for sure.
Is stillness accurate?

Or, is all of the world alive,
And we just haven’t the sight,
To see beyond our visual imprint?

I’m far removed from my LSD “experimentation” days… This was inspired by a movie I was watching.
