takes more

you ask but I see not


the shimmering light

the sparkle of eyes holding back

the gates are closed

how would you have me visit ?


did you stand

and look at the soul you have

or did the shutter in your eyes remain?

It takes more than just askance

to strip to bare

the soul comes first

and hidden it lies under memories stained

in shades unknown


laughter lines struggle with frowns

what did you feed today?

The demons or the angels within

what rallies for release

a touch or a prison?


It takes more than just a need

to ignite fires within,

the soul knows nothing

but bareness of illumination inside,

darkness and light

passion and love


who am I to be

and who am I not to be?
