#Poem – 31.05.15 / There Is No Darkness To Dispel

There is no darkness to dispel
And there is nothing wrong in Creation
There is no dogma
In which it is worth trading
A miraculous present
For an unlikely future

This universe came from nothing
And will return to nothing in the end
As did you
As will you

Many things will happen here
During your
Relatively brief but exciting interval
As a thing that exists
As a ‘parentheses in eternity’

And so
There is no reason to be upset
And so
There is nothing to fear
And so
One day you will return
To where you came from
As natural as the sun setting

The darkness is your friend
And has always been
There is no darkness to dispel

#Poem – 14.06.15

We did not come to this world to die
But perhaps
The ultimate outcome of this life
Is to leave this life complete

All possible futures
Finally condensed
Into a moment
Of perfect reminiscence
The past
And
The present
Joined in a second of finality
Paradise
Is
A
Realisation
In the midst of the walls caving in
And the curtain falling

No home
No homesickness
No love
No heartbreak
No soul
No soul to sell
No truth
No truth to hide
No lies
No lies worth telling
No pain
Anymore
No war
Anymore
No hate
Anymore
No sky
No water
No moon

And as the Last Act
Reverts back to
The Eternal Perfect Moment
Braced against eternity
As it rushes in
And it rushes on

Paradise
Is
A
Realisation

#Poem – 25.05.15

Advancing upwards:
You might see
An impasse
Of personal places
Encased in concrete.
Love and life
Nestled into the carapace of the superstructure.
The remaking,
The subdivision,
And
The vertical convergence
Of Humanity.

You could count them:
These people piled high,
Tenants in tenements
That stretch to the sky.
All of them reclaiming
Their god given birthright
To a sense of space
And a place
No matter how small
That they can call their own

#Poem – 19.09.15

One day
You will not be here
I will not be here
Everyone you love
Will not be here
The tenuous framework that holds us all together
Society
Species
Planet
Consciousness
Will have lost the war on entropy

But today we are
Alive
And so existence is
Celebration
Miracle
Cosmic joke
And short term reversal
In the cosmic short position

And you?

You exist as
A reminder
And
A big ‘fuck you’
To the heat death of the universe

You
Once
Were
Nothing
And
You
Could
Be
Anything
Before
You
Are
Nothing
Oncemore
