Your Past No More

Your past no more 
this door you came to
none but Love
healed your past 
karmic and cosmic
energetic and psychic
Love cradled you 
light and shadows 
you broke to heal
too real 
this mirroring love
you assumed as destiny
resigned itself to detached immunity
your essence shines
from death to life
a new name 
anointed your being 
a new door 
a new love 
embracing love
wholly you
where you alone remained 
alone with the alone 

Womb Betrayal

panting for water
you died in her lap
drank to your fill
revived through her gaze 
love’s touch 
never to return 
not even a smile
betraying your spiritual mothers
you repeat the crime of womb betrayal
the cycle repeats 

A Loyalist Is Tested

The emotional absence
a test of your resilience
when love remained conditional
love too was temporary 
a loyalist is tested 
a lover is tested
love is magical 
love becomes ugly
love is the greatest irony
so waters may be tested
for purity and false claims 
filtered and sifted 
as sand to water
remain with Laila
depart like Shams
battle her like Yazid 
proclaim like Hallaj
Jacob’s separation 
an inevitable reunion
of a torn shirt and tears
where sorrow left fear
pure bliss, now drink
a sip from Kawther
for Alchemized hearts 
none but the elect 
this fountain of purity
for lovers of unity 
transformed to gold
this emotional absence
the absence illusory
presence remains eternal 
with souls of our fraternity 

Slow Down

When my thoughts 
raced faster than this heartbeat
and breath vanished into thin air
It was time to slow down 

A Must to Become Crazy

leaving logos behind
this travel homeward 
a circling of the heart 
that continues eternally 
they said it was a must 
to become crazy
before becoming a mystic
