Journey to Your Deepest Self

I Want to Be the Darkness

“I want to be the darkness!” She said. Not knowing how profound Her desire and courage went. Now I’m here with her Tumbled into this place Once more With her leading me Showing me the way She always has been Calling me to come down To where heart was lost A very long time ago She wants me to stay here forever now Never leave again I’ve been prone to leaving Hating the darkness The decay and stench here The ugliness of this place Of all the hurt and loss that’s ever been I’ve done all I could to stay away from here When she’s pulled me down Once more To the place where everything good withers A slow painful decay How could anyone want to be here? I’m walking in the land of the dead now Or so it seems With her Not alone anymore I’ve brought a small bit of light My willingness To bring love here However I can For as long as it takes No place else to go That feels more real Or more worthwhile being in No more avoiding What lives in the darkness I’m not leaving anymore I don’t know what I can do here Don’t know what will happen To me, to her, to it all I just know it has to be That she is included Her voice heard Her passion honored Or else we’re all doomed To be drawn into the abyss Of heart break Forever So here I’ll stay This small flicker of light I’ll keep tending That’s all it takes Or so she tells me A willingness to be transformed By the fire of this place That only burns away the illusions We’ve all been pretending Maybe the tides are turning now Time for something new Something yearned for From the very beginning Maybe the original spark That was drawn by the darkness Will stay So something new Something precious And wanted Can be...

All Hell Broke Loose

image from strangedangers.com “All hell broke loose!” he said As if that’s a bad thing Well let me tell you It’s Hell time! It’s about time For everything to fall apart So if you don’t like the heat Get out of the way Out of my way Because I’ve opened the door It can’t be closed anymore I want it all to come out It’s what I’ve asked for It’s what you’ve pretended you wanted It’s not neat and pretty This going to hell business It’s not controllable Not understandable It’s the ultimate letting go Not knowing Just falling, falling, falling into it Wondering if you will survive it? Let me tell you now That you won’t You won’t survive it! Not this part of you That believes in the neat and pretty The tidy and understandable The controllable That all get’s thrown out the window It evaporates actually Into the thin air of nothingness That it always was It’s not so bad this hell place Highly underrated Underestimated too For the power that it holds Always has held To do it’s work in the dark In the shadow Not because it needs to But because no one has wanted to see The truth of what goes on Down here in hell It’s had to stay down here Pushed down So unloved and unwanted And it’s not possible to stay fresh And clean and pretty Under such conditions So if you’re asking to go here Don’t expect prettiness Not at first at least And don’t expect to come out alive Not as you’ve known yourself Everything gets transformed down here Burned alive Purified actually Though it may not seem that way at first It’s not possible to know what will happen It’s not that kind of place Not made for those wanting the comfortable road I want to bring some light down here Any light at all would be new here Enough acceptance For what’s been going on So we can find out what it really is These places we’ve been so scared of So repelled by Finding out what it is When it’s no longer suppressed Pushed down in hell With all the other parts gasping Feeling the hatred that is all they have...
