centre

this growing weariness

engulfs me to a point

of some sort of deep yearning


where is the absolute silence

where I can hear

the whispers of my soul


where is the complete darkness

where I can feel 

my own light come forth


where is that delicate stillness

where I might meet again

myself in my essence, my centre

daydream


watching the clouds pass by


slowly drifting along with them

taking your thoughts with you

as they turn into a vivid imagination

life becomes a beautiful fantasy


leave the window open

let the clouds come in and

colour your home with the reverie

the simplest pleasure of a daydream

UP, and away!

A dreamlike feeling,


breaking free, soaring,

being high up, 

at the pinnacle of yourself.


This is an invitation to fly,

to reach your aspiration’s fancy

to empower yourself with

a pair of psychedlic wings,

and there you go,

UP, and away!

speak to me


from small disconnections

that connect us elsewhere

to widening gulfs of unbearable silences


sometimes all i long for,

is for someone to look at me,

listen to my stores,

speak to me

Short Film,  2012 

 

the light within 

the lamp of my soul

the birth of my being

the light that lives within 

i want to crawl back to you
