Wonder struck

I am wonder struck

To feel the hand of Luck in a universe of misfortune

To be born in a time and space

free of war and and pain

subject only to the hurt that I bring upon myself

through misdeed and foolish choice

I am wonder struck

filled to the brim with liquid gold

The tree of eternity

strumming fates chords

holds me cradled within the shelter

of  flower bloomed arms

gazing out through leaf shaped eyes

that have seen the infinite

and I

I am nothing but wonder struck

to be witness to lifes glory

nothing but a witness

simply existing

in this time and space

brought to my knees

weeping

at the beauty of it all

Wanting

Greed, lust, envy, wrath, pride, sloth, gluttony

I feel this need so strongly it’s as though

My skin will rupture

Spewing out all this wanting

I desperately hold within

Trapped in this shell

Reaching out to grasp eternity

Until I fall apart from the weight of it all

-Jason B

 

A fresh start

From open sores my lifeblood seeps

Draining down into spaces between

Here, there and Neverwhere

Emptying out the filth

Purging me of you, of us

Of all that could have been

A fresh start, somewhere between

Here, there and everywhere

These veins flow endlessly

Leaving behind the memory of you

-Jason B
