The art of letting go

there are many things i didn't know about myself that i found out recently
there are all sorts of things i can do
there are many characters alive inside that i didn't know


of concern with what negative things people would think or say
of my own shy, insecure, unsure, 'i can't' nature
i realized that that crap has only held me back
held me back from having fun
from doing what I truly want to do
from enjoying my life
from helping other people to enjoy their life
from allowing people to see me, really see me
so I started.....
looking around.....

and i found

The Lady NightShade of NightShade Theater
A woman of talent and of mystery indeed

A lovable monster named Miss Cheff
don't let her fool you though
she really only wants to make you laugh

A silent film star

and a princess with powers to make monsters go away

Why had I spent so much time looking away from me

when it's all happening inside baby

behind these eyes

is a whole world for me to discover
and to share

i promise to pull the veil aside
and to become all the me's i find inside

take a look around
who do you find inside you?
let her out

FalIing for a string of un-understood words

The eggs of birds beget flight

while mortal men keep their feet on the ground

sensible bodies kindle positions into every pore

for what loosens them is what tightens me

and I have not sprung from vital motions just to let you have your way

So what say ye of morning minds that come with old age?

I totter on the edge of reason eloped with lethargy

Judas Kiss

Those pretty little lips
waited for me
with breath held inside them
waiting to speak their lies
wanting to use their power to destroy

then the pucker
the press upon my flesh
the coldness of them that i never expected
never saw coming

then their release
and me
left with that stain upon my cheek

I pray for you

for inside the precious slide of my throat

i found these words

now i see

through the many eyes of The Infinite Being

in many ways

in many directions

that triumph is already mine

no matter what you do

Now, snuggle up and let me tell you a little story.

Once upon a time there was a

Who finally got it:




"Let 'em get mad
They gon' hate anyway don't you get that
doesn't matter if you go along with their plan
They'll never be happy cause they're not happy with themselves"

"I'm talkin' 'bout things that I know
it's okay show yourself some love
don't worry 'bout who's saying what
(it's gonna be fine, work what you got)
Work what you got."

Mary J, I send you love!!

Dear 2010,

I just want you to know that you didn't break me. It's 2011 and I'm still here and BETTER THAN EVER BABY! And don't think 2011 will finish the job 'cause 2011 has no idea who 2011 is dealing with. :)
