CORVIDAE

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 12, 2010 by ravenstooth
In the fine avenue of thoughtless happenings
The delicate placid Corvidae lurched buoyant
Singing a blatant vibration across the dawn
Hairy feathery legs strike the branch with silent sway
Bleating to the sun’s shining hover with worms and grubs
The misty hillside looms hollow servant echos
She looks willful and pleasant toward the east
Cries hard and voyeuristically, then joins him in the climbing clouds
In the midst of the shivering quiet they spirit-chime their forever
Then mate for life…

EVER END

What would you tell me if I loved you somehow
Would you be happy and let your smile shine out
To feel your wonder hmm…
With me
 
There is a thoughtful surprise that keeps you dreaming me
I hold you deep in my eyes until tears are streaming me
And you can shiver hmm…
While your holding me
 
We walk right outside your door
There is a crow talking more
I see that the river is flowing through me hmm hmm…
 
I turn and ask you your special name
You say the raven came and took it away
There are his feathers that try to make our love fly in the same old way
 
And I’ll hold you again
Until it’s our turn to end
Will you hold me again
This day should never end
And we hold on again
Our love will never… ever… ever end
 

THAT YOU WERE SMILING

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2010 by ravenstooth
When I stepped out into the fresh midnight air
I was feeling pretty good and I knew I would
Begin to see me
And the moon shone white like a flashlight beam
And I started to dream, I swear I heard you scream
Then I could see you
 
Sat down on the cool wet lawn
To try to let this run
Thought there until the moon crashed into dawn
And watched the rising sun
My only hope was that you were smiling
 
Then the morning rooster begged for the waking light
As he yelled his crow, to let everyone know
He was yawning
And the dew that wet the lawn all that night
Which cooled the air, there was fog everywhere
We were dawning
 
Witnessed the morning doves flying in my head
I also saw the chickadees come scavenging for pieces of bread
They never even saw our shadows shiver
 
And then in from the east, flew a raven
He was a screaming showman, tricked us to believe the omen
Was our distant echo
When I stepped back into my reality there
I was feeling very good, I could tell that my path would
Begin to let go
 
Sat down on the dry green lawn
To try to let this run
Thought there until the sun crashed away the dawn
And watched the raven sun
My only hope was that you were smiling
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

UNRAVEL

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2010 by ravenstooth
Looking up to the sky
Covered it in gray
The clouds that sing to me
Soak my skin this way
 
I guess I’ll have to fly
 
Raven’s crow a bitter croon
Lavishing their wings
They glisten in the showering
They tell me everything
 
I guess I’ll have to fly
 
Let this image go free
I shout to the echos that mimic my voice
Telling me to see
 
The river floats on away
Which way is the sea
It holds my visions astray
Wash my soul from me
 
I guess I’ll have to fly
 
No need to fret in this existence
Patience is the key
To unlock dreams in their truest essence
I seek them in my sleep
 
I guess I’ll have to fly
 
Let this image go free
I shout to the echos that mimic my voice
Telling me to see
 
Looking up to the sky
Clouds have blown away
This darkness next to me
Helps me think this way
 
I guess I’ll have to fly
I guess I’ll have to fly
I guess I’ll have to fly
I guess I’ll have to fly…
 
 
 
 
I can’t deny
Why there is life
We could shout out
Try to delight
Will we burn out
Dreaming all this fuck that we see
Sleeping while our thoughts will unravel
 
There’s more to me
What do you want me to be
I could give you all of my dreams
Dreaming all this fuck that we see
Sleeping while our thoughts will unravel
 
The Earth is brave
Giving this world unto me
And I piss in a hole to the sea
Dreaming all this fuck that I see
Sleeping while my thoughts start to unravel
 
I can’t deny
Why there is life
We could shout out
Try to delight
Will we burn out
Dreaming all this fuck that we see
Sleeping while our thoughts will unravel
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

DISTANCE PLAGUES US

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2010 by ravenstooth
Distance plagues us
As we are legends in our own mind
We never had a chance
To resurrect the distant moment in our time
So we are now plagued in the wasted resin
And waking up in dreamt vomit to begin
The days are weak malice protruding hollow
Who becomes champion in the distant lavender
We will perish the fortress and wind up licking salamanders
The frozen skies drown the hurricane’s tongue
These new machines call us connected
But we become further in our awakened water
Here we sit mocking existence
Laughing at wishes
Spiraling into realms of boredom
Trusting the wants but pushing away the needs
Higher we climb the aborted monument
The flag flies there, a burnt echo of broken misery
Attached to the flowers secrete wisdom
Overlooked by scenery and decisions
Whose fall will pick the other one up
Repeat the effects of stoned guesses
The horse rides head high, mane whispering
An overly outstretched hand gets a slap from distance
The plague rots inside and hovers like wild penetration
We cry for our try, and see the end reaching us
We’ll die alone broken by wonder and retreat
The plague becomes like a brother or sister
Not lover or intimate discovery
Which dissolves the glue that bound the past
The future is for infinity to decide
We lend our positive monsters only to have distance plague us
See you in the distance dancing bare-breasted
Holding the plague as it waters you
Let it go, let it go
Then we’ll know that time is the shower casting rainbows
Delicate and silent
Sleep well in the distance
We will never survive the plague
Unless we speak with honest medicine
 

SILENCE IS

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2010 by ravenstooth
Fly high til it frees you
Your wandering astray
Your mind is your echo
There is no other way
 
Seek until the moon calls
Soak the rain clouds
Let your world creep up inside you
Silence is talking about you
 
Wind lets you see
Your wilderness will show
And dream infinity
Fears will water your every flow
 
Send up a fire smoke show
Where the wind goes
As your crazy thoughts still guide you
Silence is laughing right at you
 
Love is never-ending, never dead
Weeping and doubting
Even after all the hate’s been bled
We’re keeping on shouting yeah…
 
In eyes that are seeing
No more tears to rain
As lives become veering
Lovely days of pain
 
Speak up to cloud falls
Wipe your visions
Watch the world become your Raven
Silence is this pain you’re saving
Silence is leashing your behaving
Silence is this pain you’re saving
Silence is what your engaged in
Silence is this pain you’re saving
Silence is laughing right at you
Silence is talking about you…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

SHE SLEEPS WITH RAVENS

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on July 24, 2010 by ravenstooth
I’m captured by silence with noise all around
Sent you an omen without even a sound
Possibly over stepped the friendship we found
Perhaps it’d be better if I weren’t around
 
Except for the Raven, the days are now done
 
Nevermind dreaming, the wishes are gone
My shadow is sleeping because yours is so long
As soon as we enter the time we were strong
It takes only a saint cloud to make us belong
 
Except for the Raven, the dreams are all gone
The days are now done
The dreams are all gone
The days are now done
The dreams are all gone…
 
Free falling gently til dawn comes around
Hoped that the moon would shine to the ground
Opened up your mind without even a sound
Perhaps you’ll see better when I’m not around
 
Except for the Raven, no one has won
The days are now done
The dreams are all gone
And no one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won
No one has won…
