states of mind

GENTLE STATES OF MIND

Walking with John Lennon
This Person I Call Me
Gray Morning
Not On Empty, Not On Full
8 O'Clock
The Time for Waiting
     is Completed
The World Is My Kingdom
Call to the Living

GRIEF, SADNESS, LOSS
I Hold You
Words Cannot Contain

Sadness in Your Eyes
Brought to Grief by Love
The Night Before
    the Forever Dark
Fluffers Loves
    and the Word Loves Her Back
I Cry with Desperation

INNER A-BOMB
Escape Velocity

ELATION
Tidal Wave with a Typhoon
     on the Side
Life Isn't Upside Only

ANGER, FRUSTATION, RAGE
Up Against the Wall
You Think That You Know
Chains in the Mind

Scarlett Runs ... Out of Luck

LONGING, LONELINESS
Can't Cross the Gap
Who is My Match?
Shopping for Dreams
Who Will Help Me
     With My Spark?
Help - Who Will Help?
Please Help Me Make
     My Dreams Come True

Making My Dreams Come True

MORE STATES OF MIND
The Bluest Bluest Blues
Are My Emotions Asleep?
Can't Stop Time
Forever Alone
My Own Lucky Penny
Seven Days of Happiness
My Dreams and I
Who Will Help Me?
Help - Who Will Help?
Do You Have What I Need?
Walking on Eggshells
The Highest Walls
I Am Not A Lamb
So Did You?
Death of Desire?
Loss of Desire
Locked in a LIttle
     Tiny Squishy Box
Like a Dinosaur
     in a Chicken Coop
I Try
You Are Not To Be Trusted,
     You Are Not

I Have A Secret
I Know Your Secret
On My Own Two Feet

spiritual poem coming from spiritual beliefs



THE WORLD
        IS MY KINGDOM

The world is
     my kingdom

Look for no more
     than for me
Don't need to ask why
With the earth and the sky
     as my kingdom

Look for no one
     There's the earth and the sun
Look for no one
     But for me

No need to believe
     It's as real as the trees
As the earth and the sky
     That's my kingdom

No need to ask why
     The world's spinning by

No need to
     no need to
          no need to

It's spinning

 

So much to embrace
     Enfold and then wait
In awe and distaste
     In time and in haste

The world is
     our kingdom

Look for no more
     that what's in store
          what you can make
          and embrace

My world is
     my kingdom

 

Look for no prize
     than the world and your life
Look for no one
     but for you and for me
Breathe in the air
     without a care
Look for no one
     but for you and for me

 

It's no paradise
     Illness, pain, vice
Cruelty that cracks life
     form part of my kingdom

Yet riches beyond price
     inhabit my kingdom
Breezes that caress
     Lovers deeply blessed

There's reason to grieve
     when it's time to leave
Yet death forms part
     of my kingdom

Don't die in vain
     in needless pain
See the riches beyond price
     the love, not just the vice
That warms up
     my kingdom

 

No need to have faith
     in what you see touch sense taste
But faith you may need
     to keep going

The horrors are real
The boredom is real
The shortness is real
Each pain loss gain
     is real

The earth
     is my kingdom

Possibilities whirl by
     like snow whipped by the wind
Hard to catch a falling star
     though it's glowing

Hard to hold on

to water that's flowing
to lava that's burning
to clouds that are floating
to monkeys that snap sharply

Don't need to believe
But it's hard to achieve
     a niche
     a place
     an embrace
          that stays loving

Look for no one
     but the earth and the sun
     for the trees and your friends
     for love that wends
          through your life til it's over

The earth is
     our kingdom

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
