Wake-Up Call

 

“I would like to write a Book which would drive men mad, which would be like an open door leading them where they would never have consented to go, in short, a door that opens onto reality.”
― Antonin Artaud

 

In dreamlike existence
I move through life
seeking wakefulness
Everywhere are lullabies
temptations towards sleep
lulling me
through media melodies
into stupor
Where is the alarm
that will awaken me?
What will turn my face
towards the new day’s sun?
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

terrible grace and presence
my soul encompassed

Burning

 

“I want a blaze of light to flame in me forever in a timeless, dear love of everything. And why should I pretend to want anything else?”
— Jack Kerouac

 

I light up the night
from within
as the spectrum of flame
burns within me
Different emotional resonances
blaze out from inside
allowing me to touch
the world
and be touched in return
May all that blocks me burn
leaving only pure being
my essential self
to remain.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Floating aimlessly
on emotional oceans
what shore will find us?

Out in Plain Sight Yet Hidden From View

 

I am hidden and I am not.”
— Arthur Rimbaud

 

Out in plain sight
yet hidden from view
my lyrical soul
shines out at you
Most tho can’t see me
what a surprise
Their eyes have been veiled
by the weight of the lies
society tells us
what we can view
follow the media
to know what to do.
Schools will mould us
towards the way we ‘should’ be
we gladly dawn the chains
to avoid being free
So we avoid looking
at our own honest souls
Hidden, not hidden
stuffed in their holes

 

Blessings, G
