“Awareness of…”

Careful What You Wish For by Mike Parillo #11

AWARENESS

Awareness of the mind
Breaking thoughts free from inside
Courting freedom’s sound

Desire reflections
Effectively face new goals
Find the dreams returned

Great awakenings
Heart mind and soul combining
Infinite power

Jammed mind – blind thinking
Killer of the self – murder
Lose feeling to live

Mentor guides t’ward light
Numbness is all consuming
Opposite is life

Possible changes
Quietly meditating
Rational release

Study eyes’ blackness
Trips the pain sticking the heart
Under it all is fear

Victory achieved
Waiting to scare ghosts away
X-rated thoughts – deep
Yesterday’s darkness – grabbing
Zapped by lightning – thunder roars

TOUCH

A fate one must touch
Sense the softness of her breasts
Makes one feel comfort

Don’t bust up our lives
Taming the wildness is wrong
We must remain free

Breaking me was vile
Smashing your face would feel right
