    We are the Infinite Ones

    Each of us were birthed
    from the eighth sign of the eighth house
    Our photosynthesized roots
    kissed by the rays of the Sun
    Procreated creation

    In the infamous year of 1617
    our struggle through the Diaspora
    made way for what we now know as
    the Age Of Infinity

    We've attacked this time in history
    leaving our distinct mark
    in magnificent rainbow spectrums of all races
    and rose like a phoenix from the ashes
    soaring like an eagle through time and space
    Conquering the stinging truth of our perseverance
    For we are the Infinite Ones

    We are everywhere, but not everyone sees us
    We are vocal, but not everyone hears us
    Only the few intimate perceptive observers
    can feel and know our presence

    our aura gives off a life force
    that transcends spiritually
    and has the two-fold power of healing & destruction
    for we must tear down the negative & rebuild the positive

    Our existence charges us to change taboos
    and teach the secrets revealed from the tree
    of the knowledge of good & evil
    the Ying & Yang
    excess and abstinence
    and anything not covered in life's manual
    for we are the Infinite Ones

    We round out the full twisted circle of our lives
    in search of the everlasting orgasm
    It's a hunger that dwells deep within us
    incurring visions of an ideal sexual experience so torrid
    so spiritual and unifying
    that it defies verbal description

    The male sex is on overdrive
    The female counterpart has the versatility of a geisha
    We aim to please ourselves and our lovers
    Our uninhibited passion fuels us
    making carnal knowledge an act worth living and dying for

    Love is love and lust is lust
    Sex in both of these realms are separate but equal
    paying special attention to their respective entities
    'cause the fire turns hot when you burn the candle on both ends
    But it is the abandon and thrill that makes it all the more satisfying
    for we are the Infinite Ones

    We meet the challenges of both sex and danger
    carrying a blowtorch while wearing asbestos drawers under it all
    Going out in a blaze of glory
    into the wild blue flame of existence
    but we are not consumed

    There's at least one small measure of heat
    within the charred ruins after an inferno
    The wind stirs up just enough oxygen
    to stoke up sparks, in hopes to form
    flame after flame after flickering flame

    A phoenix always rises from the ashes
    An eagle always sours higher than any Earthly bird
    The sting of a scorpion always leaves his mark
    and as long as you live, you will never forget you've met us
    for we are the Infinite Ones

    ,....welcome to our world ;)

    *APPLAUDING* This piece was rife with deep and thought provoking knowldege. Written with a free and strong mind, expressive and precise language, and a sharpness of thought. This is a piece worthy of several re-reads. I am definitely digging the concept and message. Excellently read!
