Journey of Spirits

My life shattered before my eyes, like wild
roses growing sharp thorn vines around all
time…
We united, joyful comrades drinking all night.
Singing drunken hymns, forgiving one another.
Come with us.
Journey far beyond the plastic shell,
together we seek for meaning.
Please don’t hurt – You’re drowning yourself
in paternal bleeding. Accept his ignorance.
We can leave all pain behind, and wander
through the forest. No one will miss us,
and we can kiss the feet of fate. Bring
gifts of hand carved crucifixes, incense,
and confessions of life-long shame.
Scattered, like torches on untamed fire
flies. Lost, like a flower without water and
sun. Searching for heartbeat in ancient catacombs.
We will find what we are looking for…
