If you’re not on fire,
Douse yourself in the fuel and set yourself ablaze,
Ashes to the air, clouds of smoke and haze.
Cinder block fires, blue flame crackle,
Bonfire your soul, don’t be subtle.
The lover has one way.
When I find you
I’ll find me
Stop, be still,
All this searching,
All this running,
Door knocking and screaming,
He’s here, open your heart,
The door was never closed,
He always hears,
He was never far.
Ignorant of your pulse,
Ignorant of your scars,
Feel the ridges of reality,
Feel the boundaries of insanity,
Descending into Me,
Is your ascent to eternity
Descend any which way you want!
He is love,
Let your heart sink,
Drop your ego,
Set with the sun,
Dive into the ocean,
Fall into an abyss,
Lower into your grave,
Whatever your descent,
Align your aim and point your arrow to eternity,
He is The First and He is The Last.
He is The Beginning-less, The Endless.
The Hidden, The Manifest.
That’s where you’ll find the all of me,
That’s where you’ll find He.

Love me like a semicolon;
End me so I can go on.
I’m not asking for much,
Reduce ‘me’ to rubble,
Tread on ‘me’ with imprint of boots,
Sledgehammer ‘me’ until I shatter to shards,
Trample ‘me’ with a herd of bulldozers,
Destroy ‘me’ until ‘I’ cease to exists,
Then in ‘You’, what’s left is true,
And will live on in bliss.
The price to pay for loving the divine
Is to all humanity, becoming blind
The currency; loss of mind
Part payment is not enough
In the end, you get what you pay for,
Give more, if you want more.
If you’re not willing, hard to fall,
Don’t complain if your lot is small.
The whole of you, you’ll have to sacrifice,
Paradise, has a steep price.
The broom bristles are blunt
I have swept out my heart for You.
They can’t wait for the day when:
“….Except those who come to him with a sound heart” 26:89
So they pander like paupers at the Kings door, hearts swept clean from everything in hope of:
“Rejoicing in the bounty and grace of God….” 3:171
If you want Him
Truly want Him
Be prepared to lose your Mind
Be prepared to lose your Self
Be prepared to lose Everything
How can you even fathom of asking for the very best if you cannot give even half of yourself?
Those who know, know. Nothing but Everything will do.
