the more you know, the less you have to say

 

 

 

 

011

 

 

 

 

When you are young and on fire,

 

your greatest desire

 

is to tell all who’ll listen your plan.

 

This may go on for years

 

as you sort through your fears

 

and glean insight from troubles at hand.

 

Then one day

 

you will see

 

it is not necessary

 

to reveal all your wisdom so far…

 

and that

 

words only express

 

half

 

what actions address,

 

and it’s deeds

 

that define who you are.

the secret thorn

vega_theSecretThorn

 

 

 

I BEAR A WEIGHT

 

NOT MANY SHARE

 

A BURDEN NO ONE KNOWS.

 

A MOONLESS VIGIL OF DESPAIR

 

A DARKNESS FATE BESTOWS.

 

THOUGH WISH I MAY

 

TO FEEL THE LIGHT,

 

I CANNOT CHANGE MY FATE…

 

IN PHANTOM DAY

 

AND ENDLESS NIGHT

 

IS WHERE

 

I’M MEANT TO WAIT.

the ratio of pain

vega_bloodTiesSepia#1

 

 

IN A CRISIS OF THE HUMAN SOUL

 

WHERE TORMENT LIVES AND TAKES ITS TOLL…

 

THE POETS CAN ARTICULATE THIS PAIN.

 

 

THEY’LL PONTIFICATE A DIATRIBE

 

AND SO ELOQUENTLY THEY’LL DESCRIBE

 

THE EXCLUSIVE TORMENT

 

THEY RELUCTANTLY DISTAIN.

 

 

THE MISERY THEY CELEBRATE

 

GIVES THEM CAUSE TO ILLUSTRATE

 

THE PRIVATE TORTURE THEY SO WILLINGLY SUSTAIN.

 

 

BUT ALL THE WHILE ANOTHER SOUL

 

WILL FEEL THE TORMENT TAKE ITS TOLL

 

BUT SHARE NO GENIUS TALENT TO EXPLAIN.

 

 

ALL HE KNOWS IS THAT HE’S ALONE

 

WITH NAGGING SORROW IN HIS BONE

 

ENDURING, BUT REFUSING TO COMPLAIN.

 

 

CONSUMED BY HEARTACHE AND DISTRESS

 

AND THE INABILITY TO EXPRESS

 

THE SIMPLEST OF WORDS TO EASE HIS PAIN.

 

 

IT’S NOW THAT THE POETS’ WORDS CAN HEAL

 

WHAT HE EXPRESSES, OTHERS FEEL

 

AND HIS EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO TORMENT,

 

PURELY VAIN.

 

 

THE ABILITY TO EXPRESS WHAT’S REAL

 

IS A GIFT TO SHARE, SO OTHERS HEAL

 

AND SO THE EGO MUST RENOUNCE THE CLAIM.

 

 

THE FEELINGS THAT SOME  REVEAL,

 

THAT OTHERS FEEL

 

BUT  CONCEAL…

 

IN DEEPEST TRUTH… THE PAIN IS ALL THE SAME.

THE VALENTINE

 

 

 

 

 

 

IN ALL THE DAYS BEFORE THIS TIME

 

IN DARK I WALKED ALONE

 

UNCONSCIOUS OF THE PARADIGM

 

AND SEEDS THAT I HAD SOWN.

 

THE PLAN THAT FATE DID HAVE FOR ME

 

I COULD NOT EVER KNOW;

 

TO FACE THE HARSH REALITIES

 

AND THEN

 

BE FORCED TO GROW.

 

AND ALL THE WHILE ANOTHER SOUL

 

WAS CALLED UPON TO DIE

 

AND STEP INTO A GREATER ROLE

 

ONE WHICH HE DID COMPLY.

 

NOW ROADS BEHIND LEAD WHERE WE STAND

 

OUR BROKEN LIVES THE START

 

THAT LED US TO THAT SACRED LAND…

 

INTO EACHOTHER’S HEART.

though strange we may seem (podcast interview with Dahlia Jane)

A Strange Creative Life

 

 

 

When you

 

create from the heart

 

you inevitably start

 

work

 

that’s not always accepted.

 

Yet,

 

you must do your part,

 

because the voice of the Art

 

is where

 

you and the gods

 

are connected.
