    Silent Moves,
    Stealth-like
    Push away that which I’m really not ready for
    A heavyhearted sigh
    Releasing 1/100th of the pressure
    In my core
    Still 99 parts remain attached like dead weights and I’m at
    A confusing crossroads or paths
    Intercrossing trails that’ll lead me to happiness
    Or ill filled wraths
    Counter clockwise
    Wish I Sometimes
    That time’s hands would move
    Instead of always having me stuck
    In the same orbiting grooves
    But forward still
    I continue
    Even though at times it seems I’ve been here before
    It’s then that
    I seek my meditation
    And try to
    Rehash my lore
    To open a door
    Maybe chance upon the shores
    Of a new direction
    That I might have not chosen long ago
    Try and fail methods be my only means of progression
    Electric spiders
    Weave webs of delay
    Sometimes giving me electroshocks
    Creating relapses
    In my memory
    That I just refer to as “mental blocks”
    While some think I’m just “air headed”
    Or overly mellowed out inside
    I’m really peace and balance overtly
    While I deal with complexities
    In my mind
    Find some solution then release it
    Through every single written line
    Cuz see, my poetikk, he be callin’ me
    Back to the pen and the pad
    To flow out whatever type of message
    Within me that is had
    Or emanating from the springs
    Of creative imaginational fluids
    That course thru the blue green passageways
    And allow me to intuit
    Every iota of energy
    Positive or negative sparks
    Good and bad
    Are really neither complete nor impaired
    Nor exist within the light or the dark
    Shallow waters come through reflections
    When optic receivers transmit chimera (illusion)
    I used to think that the information I had was so new
    But it was never really terra-
    Incognita
    See it had been here long before this earth life of mine
    I sometimes wonder why ignorance is so prevalent
    Like if my back aches, why don’t I straighten my spine
    Instead of the slouched position I fall into
    Curved like scoliosis vertebrae
    Don’t confuse me for a dilettante
    My thirst for all I do is real like the name of Yahweh
    But
    I wonder if being of this planet born gives me enough
    To justify
    My reasons and explanations
    Detailing out as to why,
    I do what I do, maybe the analytical virgo in me
    Breaks things down too frequently
    Self-criticism is the sharded cloak that I wear
    Creating gashes in my temple incessantly
    So many theories,
    So many philosophies
    So many ways to get by
    Got me drinking the liquid silver
    So that my self
    May for the time being be elementally purified

    Welcome Queen,

    since I'm up in the wee hours of the morn let me be the first to say that...

    "this joynt was hot!!!"

    If first impressions are what you gauge a poet on then your scribe speaks volumes. Go on sis weave those words.
