Humanity
it's physical nature
         eons
         in the making
or
         seconds
         (depending)

evolve and
                      change
the conditions met 
          favor
          one trait 
          over another

evolve and 
                      recognise
all that is believed
          through
          countless
          experiences
 ups and downs taken
          collectively
          singularly
coupled within vague perceptions
of an always subjective nature

To refine
To re-define
To hold firm

this is for us all;

sometimes we fail
          to pay heed
minds stoic 
          switched off
          to reason beyond 
          a lack of doubt
our moral high ground
rigid and unforgiving ...

closed off ...
we lose touch,
we fade into the distance...
we

                                   Forget

sometimes we listen
           chop and change to suit
minds confused
           the cacophony
           of chaotically
           good intentions
our moral high ground
crumbles beneath ...

too open ...
we lose touch,
we fade into the distance ...
we

                                   Forget

the middle ground

Lost

always there
family
friends
care
enough to
accept 
see
always there

Regardless

I have kind of heard of 

                  psychobabbbleultranaut

I don't know why.
It sticks in the recesses
The plaque of this sometimes
crazy mind.

Now I have

                pinkshinyultrablast

And there is a war.

pyschobubbleultranaut v pinkshinyultrablast

It's bloody fantastic!
These Cold spiked, metal mountains
With spires erect with the purpose of reach
The heaving, broody bowels below
Alternative notions of the beautiful in darkened spaces

Walk through the hail of driven bullets
Dodging left, stride on, weave right, stride on
The sudden jolts waking me from a lunchtime malaise

And then I Stop ...

Close my eyes. I Listen ...

This.  The pulse of a majestic city
Perfectly composed; chaotic, alive
Coalescence a footnote; the beat defined

I.  It's sadistic master.  It's masochistic slave
Drawn to this flame; a repeat offender
Savagery lurks in it's taunting shadows
Yet always alluring ... always ... mine.
Hate waiting
Easy excitement built
Keys given

Hate it

Want to see;
Listen

Given to possibilities ...
                                                                   Already?
Yeah

Phone
Do something damn you.
When your attentions
are willingly captured
And all of your ill gotten
thoughts

Piss on the logic of the day

The only thing you can really do
is go along
For the
Ride

Maelstrom? Tornado?

Nah more likely to be in the middle of a dream about a dream than anything else.

It's been a while.

I've been here, there and everywhere.  Blogged, flickr'd, photog business ... yet something was missing.

I found it again today.  Two places at once.  

My vulnerability.  

The written word opens up my soul and allows an oft hidden place to grow and evolve.  I'm ashamed to say that I have left it locked and shunned for a long time.  I let life get to me and forgot how to open up, bare all, and accept who I am.  That changed recently.  

The shackles were broken, but the way forward was still darkened with doubt.  And then ... a spark shimmered in the darkness along the way ... clarity.  I knew.  It's funny how something so innocuous as a new focus can rattle the calcified thoughts clean away and refresh with a blazing ferocity.  It has taken me aback somewhat.  I have had to think long and hard about who I am and what I like ... more to the point who I like as I wander through the myriad of scares that my vulnerability brings to the fore.  To open up knowing this could happen is scariest of all, but if I don't ...

I need to know.  I need to desire and covet that which naturally feels right.  I need ... well ... that's why I'm back.  I have someone to write about, someone who has opened me up from mind to soul and has my heart beating the beat of the smitten.

So I guess I'm open for business again.
