Awake

As I approach the portal, between consciousness and sleep
I smell the romantic aroma of peach mango scented candles
The sweet fragrance of burning apple cinnamon incense
And intoxicating cherry vanilla perfume, drifting across from the other side

When I crossover into dreams
I hear serpents and scoundrels, speaking in tongues
Sirens singing of carnal delights, for shipwrecked sailors
And a seductive symphony of unconscious desires

I see bright yellow eyes, glowing in the summer moonlight
The reaper and father time playing chess, one of them nearing checkmate
The Phoenix rising from the ashes, of forgotten senses
And vibrant colors of red, orange, blue, pink, and purple

I feel cold hands reaching out from the shadows
Warm breath on the back of my neck, my hairs standing on end
Smooth velvet skin crawling beneath silk sheets
And wet tongues that slither slowly across my chest

At an elegant banquet, I dine on the finest ambrosia
A flavorful assortment of tastes, with sweet spices and marinades
Lobster tails and crab legs, smoked salmon, glazed shrimp, and filet mignon
Cooked vegetables, forbidden fruit, cheesecake with caramel, and white wine

Across the crowded ballroom, and through a maze of forgettable faces
I see a beautiful woman in a black sequined dress
She has soft white skin and long auburn hair
Red fingernails and a radiant smile, behind crimson lipstick

Her eyes are mysterious and mesmerizing
The right one is light blue
And the left one is dark green
Neither seem confined by mortality, or concerned with time

After a few moments she notices my transfixed gaze
And our eyes meet in a moment of unconscious destiny
Then she smiles seductively, and confidently walks towards me
As she approaches, I can smell her intoxicating perfume

Nine Lives

Sullen eyes, stung by the sunrise
Crestfallen lovers, under ominous skies
We lost our immortality today
Nine lives withered, and faded away

Precious memories of passion and romance
Wrapped in beautifully decorated cocoons
Safe from the bitterness of regret
And from being devoured, by the cruelty of time

Leeches lurking in sultry eyes
They covet intensely, and rarely compromise
I want to hear it crackle, and smell the cinders
Incarnate illusions, behind benevolent smiles

Exiled connoisseur, of forbidden pleasures
Scarlet letters carved in flesh
Exploring ancient catacombs of the unconscious
Searching for past lives and forgotten lovers
Scattered throughout the sands of time

Piecing together fragmented memories
And mysterious dreams, veiled in shadows
Channeling abstract, and elusive sensations
To stimulate senses, no longer aroused
By the narrow spectrum of consciousness

Scavenging the obscure corners
Of the aficionado’s abandoned wasteland
Looking for the path to serenity
Tired legs and weary eyes wishing
To be home in your heart

Phantoms

Saw myself reflected in you
Thought I could stop my pain
By being your tourniquet

Tried so hard, to keep our cravings
From carving their way into consciousness
But they severed our serenity
And divorced our love from trust

Denial taught me how to lie
Found clever places
To hide from my shadow
And slip into illusion

Enchanted by envy
And enamored with vanity
Hubris led us down the spiral

Shedding Schisms

Shedding skin at sunset
I succumb to my subconscious
And sell my soul to stimulate
Sullen and subdued senses

Savoring sensations, as I spiral
Into a sea of self-loathing
Where the severed serpent speaks of
The gold within my shadow

Starving for control, I slither into
The sanctuary of self-reproach
Safe from the sacrifice required
To heal the schisms

Denial

I feel the cat’s claws, digging into my tongue
When my reflection, asks who I am
I never mourned you
Just fed you to my shadow

Heartbreak led to hedonism
Created a cornucopia of denial
With neatly decorated lies
And cleverly crafted excuses

Disenchanted and desensitized
Desperately clinging to vanity
As insecurity starts to claw through

Speechless
Crawling back to my castle
Where phantom limbs
Caress romantic memories

Undertow (Swim Away)

You carved out my heart
But I sharpened the knife
Betrayal turned into control
When you begged for forgiveness

Sacrificed my dreams and desires
Thought I could love you, and you’d change
Enabled with love, while reason atrophied
Second chances disguised as compassion

You could smell loneliness
Like blood in the water

Caught in the undertow
I saw your fin approaching
But didn’t have the self esteem
To swim away
