Soulful Excess

Poem By David Lacey

If to know thyself is truly the path of wisdom
Then who are they our ‘masters’ to lay down
Laws in dogmatic tainting upon the fuel of
Our intoxication, are we not those that seek
Redemption upon a path of soulful excess?
If it is true that only in knowing the colours
Of our deepest, most shadowed shades that
We may fade beyond the ego and ascend.
In soaking our minds with the angel of
Awakening we are finding ourselves just
As we are loosing our minds to seek our
Souls, we must dissect before we are
Whole, and in doing so in many different
Mindsets we are born again as those who
May forget the sickening pulse of subservience
To laws that hold no grounding in moral justice.
I seek to know myself and in doing so I
Feel just and true in the opening of every
Door I come across, just as Alice I seek with
Curiosity the rabbit holes of my mindscape.
Not to escape but to discover, never to
Run but always recover what has been lost.

Seek your knowledge in observation.

A Fool In Love

A swollen heart of infected blues weeps un-sleeping throughout the nightmare,
I feel unworthy of affection, as though I walk without direction,
Always searching for an answer to the questions that lay forever undefined.
All around me is chaos spinning within a churn of emotion, yet I am stationary,

Adorn Death

Adorn death
Breathe breath
Know life anew.

A Droplets Ripple In The Ocean

Having chased Knowledge down and feasted upon her dissected corpse
They are left awaiting the flavour of Wisdoms flesh.
Never to know that they are wishing for tomorrows sorrow today
They are as cursing themselves with the words they say.

Sensation Penetration

Sensation penetration, a diversion at the best of times,
At worst a crime of violent colours, as shadows feed,
As shades parade, breeding upon the insomnia of the sun.
Hoping as they prayed his time was done, yet here he comes
