I Am





I

am

that

which

cannot be

caged,

tamed,

tried,

understood,

included,

deluded,

or left -

misunderstood.


I am

the fairy tailed children

asleep beneath blankets

on a cool summers eve,

books in palms,

eyes shut tight,

warding off monsters

in closets

underneath the bed.


I am the angelic presence in dreams,

the dark rising depths

present,

in the time between

night and day.


I am

the bleeding hearts

of artists,

music flowing

like manes of thoroughbreds,

strings and violins

concertos and preludes,

the rise and fall

of notes,

the voice of the oppressed

painting alone,

writing alone,

speaking to the masses

standing in front of

sculptures

in galleries

half numb

from having their soul

placed on a

public platter

picked apart

and critiqued.


I am

the constellations

stars,

the ancient raiment

of the majestic

velvet night

coaxing solitude,

creation,

rendering you

sleepless

with desire -


and the great Gods

contemplating existence

tossing magic

and medicine

- electrified -

towards Earth

teaching lessons

        to the mere human soul.       


I am Woman

Man

Child

Mother

Father

Brother

Sister -


I am a lover

loved

loving -


I am the volcanic

rumblings

of every tired soul

and every smile

and tear -


I am an argument

and agreement

the birds that berth

in your

crown chakra,

their song

is mine -


all creatures

earth, dirt, silt,

gems, stones,

twigs and trees -


every root and crevice,

all footholds and paths,

the falling leaves

- kamikaze -

every rock and shell,

the waves and oceans,

all bodies of water,

feathers, flight,

the bees that buzz

around the new bud,

the hand that guides a sprout

from seed,

the secrets the wind

whispers,

the fierce embrace

of winter,

the warmth upon

your face,

heart,

body,

soul,

and the sweet cool

calming waters

of life -


I am death

      wild,      


I am

Woman.


Here.

Now.


I am every element,

all emotions,

every fable told

by firelight,

every word

written,

spoken,

uttered,

screamed,

and sighed -


the true Goddess,

the wild soul -


I am that which cannot

be kept

nor set free.


I exist

without logic,

in rational conscious

thought,

in esoteric

holy

nakedness.


I am the rich man

and beggar,

the king and the jester -


I am the grass,

all species,

and the sky,

kaleidoscopes

of spectrums -


I am good

versus

evil

versus

self

versus

sentience -


I am a conundrum

unto myself,

a human shell

existing

as pure

ether.


I am heaven

and hell.


I am the destroyer

and creator


simultaneous.
