Venom

Slithering through the sand
This phallic beast
Hardens
As it hisses
Releasing its venom
Penetrating it into my blood
Pumping through to my heart
Until it overtakes
Swallowing it whole
And impregnates my body
With death

Welcome

Screen Shot 2018-09-08 at 8.05.37 PM

I welcome the gloom
With arms outstretched

“Embrace me” I whisper

As I have made love to you
For many turnings
of the mother’s womb

Allowing you to nestle your power
Inside of me
Shielding you from the flame
Of a burning sun
Allowing you to devour me
From the inside out
With your biting grip
Feeding from that which
My soul secretes.

Dancing with you
And surviving to see
The beauty
Has been my greatest honor

While I may not
Share vows with you,
You will walk down the aisle of eternity
Holding my hand
Giving me away
To new found
purpose and strength
That only you could provide.

– love affair with darkness

Illusion

Screen Shot 2018-09-08 at 8.05.28 PM

In rough waters
Vision becomes distorted
Self worth mirrors
Contorted reality and
Lightning within is perverted

Drown movement,
Find stillness
in the ocean of mind and
truth will shine her light upon you.

You will begin to see
with your heart,
Realizing the eyes
Are the testicles of devil
That give birth to illusion.

Close them.
Escape the light
Dive deep into shadow
Survive the twilight

-this is where you grow

Gnawing

Screen Shot 2018-09-08 at 8.05.19 PM

Suck in the tides that crash against the ribs
It will devour the Goddess
Eating her alive
Gnawing at the seat of her empowerment
Burning through the darkness
Blinding you

Allow her freedom
To wander in the womb
Stretch out in comfort of being
Exploring the darkness that is she
Awaken the Goddess
Raw, wild and free

Perspective

The most powerful perspective is the one I am engaging with and experience at this very moment. This perspective can and will shape my day, my life. This is the only perspective that matters and that holds power.

 

*This is from a journal entry dated Friday, May 11 2018 with the prompt being “Pick a perspective – the most powerful one” from Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map Planner.

Tarot – A Yearning For Answers

Tarot is the birthing of thought and reflection around experiences and situations that we seek guidance for, specifically situations that give us some level of heartache and have us thinking towards the future. This throbbing has our hearts aching not in sorrow but the yearning for answers that dwell deep inside of us. Tarot reflects back to us, that which we already know to be true.

*This was an entry in my Tarot Journal from Tuesday, August 28th 2018. I drew the 3 of swords card from the angel tarot for the question: “What is Tarot?”. Let me point out this is not an exhaustive list of what Tarot is or what I perceive it to be only what flowed through me for this daily one card reading.

Inner Truth

…What’s true for you?

What is true for me is and may not be true for anyone else. THIS truth means I will often find myself as an island, alone, surrounded by another substance and truth. It also means that my perspective is unique and I have within me the capacity to inspire and influence others through truth so long as I am brave enough to raise my voice and speak MY truth.

Other islands may move in close to me, sharing the same ocean while some may merge or drift a part. My truth, my voice, holds this power, this responsibility. Being alone in my truth does not mean I need to be isolated, alienated or without community as I experience the changing tides, temperature, and currents of the water and earth that we share. Helping the environment we cohabitate will help us each thrive, together.

 

*These words were taken from a reflection prompt “…what’s true for you?” entry from Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map Planner. This entry was dated from Saturday, May 5th 2018.
