Me !

I, with my simeon mind, find myself doubting all that you are
with your body wrapped in humble rags, bound by mortal ties
while upon the cross you rise above me in fearful symmetry

Your truth, your love, your faith shrouded with deception
by the preachers and deceivers who teach your gospel
to the lambs who follow on blindly, meekly believing all

To taste the body of Christ, to drink the blood of Christ in
a world full of supercilious recreants who hide behind the
power of your words turning sinners to zombies of faith

In Holy communion Laudate Dominum proclaimed echoing
in the vault and rafters , filling the air with pompous grandeur,
imposing pomp and circumstance, raping innocent serenity

I, with my simeon mind, find truth, love and faith within where
no man can shape or mould to suit their perception of your
gospel to make of me a transient believer to raise their ego

In my body I shall find my cathedral, my heart the glorious altar
my mind will teach me the righteous path, virtuous and worthy
I am a sentient being with a simeon mind, I am me.

A Silence On The Night.

A Silence On The Night. long poem

A silence on the night. The day fluttered quietly in whisper soft resonance, So many colours slowly dying Like confetti in the rain, And echoes touched each other, a reunion of themselves, As though they were astounded At their resonating

What Asylum!

Come and meet me in chamber of death where the tempest comes every night. I start disrobing the anger to find the eye of the moon. Where do I get that ink that writes an unwritten poem on water of

A Big Idea?

A Big Idea? short poem

The moral dilemma was unlearning. less than truth. Downgrading the- branded witch. Vaccine was spawning new virus. O Buddha, why did you started looking beautiful and began sitting in a living room? Trailing the smoke I was going to find

I Know Me

I Know Me short poem

It was a freak accident of epithelium under anaesthesia. You place a window on to a hollow brain. The money makes the monkey out of you. A green light blocks the fish, your memory, to swim in black thoughts. The
