Consequences of Desire

Posted in Art, Love, Poem, Romance, Spirituality, Unrequited love with tags , , , , , , , on August 15, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly

An idea held within a skeletal like frame
Paints a picture like fine brush onto a blank canvas
Thoughts arise like a gust of wind whirling over open skies
Where small birds stretch their wings open wide
Passing by

Behold before you lies uncharted pasture of possibilities
Multiple paths left untouched, unexplored
Too deep the meadow drifts, too dire the consequences of desire

Sunken footprints are found inside the deep recesses of the pasture
Once a naive soul wandered too far in and lost their way
Captivated by longing

Wishes have since faded as they descended into the darkest well
Left echoing without a witness

Grasping hands cannot hold onto that which the heavy heart clings dear


A Dissolving Constant

Posted in Poem, Spirituality with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly

Moments are fleeting
Slip by us like lightning
Contrived of small flashes of electrical pulses and waves
Witnessed only once and then fades

Moments continue
Like how the sunsets from yellow into
Hues that transform from soft pink to pastel violet
As clouds steadily change their figure on the horizon
The entire sky is bit by bit lightened
With it the sun disappears down a field of green
Warmth travels to touch your skin from its beams
As it passes through spaces between trees

Heartstrings fastened together
Will one day unwind and lose their grip
A trees’ branches cease reaching
As it’s roots encounter a limit

Footprints in the sand are
Washed away by the force of a wave
Collapsing in on itself as it forms a concave

Notice how your hand has dried
from when it was once immersed in the sea
As a rock slowly corrodes, loses form and becomes debris

The universe and every particle are set at a constant
An ever changing ocean of transformation
An uncatchable, elusive barrage

Arising and dissolving
Spinning and revolving

Life’s preciousness in only found in it’s fleeting nature
The surge of adrenaline present in the face of danger

Can wholeness and completion be realized
in the fragmented moments I can only stitch together
and weave apart

Does boundlessness reside someplace uninhibited
A concept destroyed by my perception so limited
A place where voices echo to the edges of the universe which spill onto it’s sides
So vast where no thing could conceivably collide

Permanence is revealed to be
An illusion no longer concealed by materiality
Seemingly opposites await in flux until

equilibrium is perpetuated by a made up finality
Seasons change and so have I
Death runs a circle and finds it’s other half as alive

Sheer smoke hangs  atop of a still lake
Mist encompassing mountaintops will soon too dissipate

Each deceased creature will turn to ash from where it originates

All But Words

Posted in Art, Poem, Spirituality, Uncategorized with tags , , on January 28, 2014 by shatteredbutterfly

it is all
but syllables and letters
rhetoric & noise
until you live and experience
true illusion destroyed
equilibrium hangs in waiting
A path no one can afford
Without letting go of
the block to hit the chord
the letters form words
falling upon deaf listeners
repeating mantra and song, but know not what toward
but the one’s who
truly understand
need no signs
nor commands
See, words they have no meaning
at least here in a sense
without finally knowing
the life they represent

Star Crossed Souls

Posted in Love, Poem, Spirituality with tags , , , on March 8, 2013 by shatteredbutterfly


Star Crossed Souls

Separated since antiquity
What myth each holds on their own remains a mystery
An unwritten revelation placed within history

Beneath transparent cosmic waves lie in a slumber, lie asleep
A silent heart creates ripples emanating in the deep
Centuries pass, fates to collide at last
Two stars to be united, a burning flame ignited

When stars align to map out our constellation
Tied to a heart beat’s elation
Our paths will intertwine, they’re bound to in time

At a glance, I’m captivated
Like a drug, deeply sedated
Drowning, saturated

We are Hydrogen filled particles brought out of a stars vision
Remarkably extracted from the deepest incision
Formed within a sea of heavenly clouds collision

Through a hearts declaration of an undying dedication
A tale of our souls destination, from the mouth of an angel’s narration
Sung a ballad of an everlasting salvation

From a stars inception to it’s awaited demise
A chronicle of enchantment in it lies



Wild Within

Wild Within1


Now available on Society6! 

She’s wild within
Part angel, but the viel is thin
With an animal glare
Try to tame her if you dare

Have you ever laid at night
with the cosmo’s so bright
In the nebula of your eye
and you Grasped at that moment , inside a chance
Wishing that feeling would never pass
So you spread your arms open
Never holding back
Let it flow through nights, stars shine so bright
Grasp tight
In the separateness something had to collide. 
Not a choice. 
Something out of sight, and light and
Because in this moment
Nothing’s pass…. and  nothing matters. And 
No thing lasts.
Even if you disagree, one day you may feel
You will so surreal
