When A Man Feels

When a man loves;
It is fierce, burning, self-sustaining,
He will defy the gods to keep them safe,
Those he loves,
He lives, dies for them,
Loyalty leaping from a devoted soul
And he calls them,
Comrade, Brother, Sister, Friend.

When a man truly loves a woman;
The passion; explosives,
Like volcanoes ejaculating magma,
Let nothing stand in his way.
When a man loves a woman,
He becomes a poet,
For his heart speaks not mere words,
But sacred oracles,
Cultured Conversation Cascading from confounded lips,
And he calls her,
Angel, Queen, Dear, Woman.

When a man a cries,
‘tis rare,
Each pain filled tear speaks, a dead language,
The reason you couldn't comprehend his pain,
And when they hit the Ground,
Mother Earth captures her son’s anguish,
Pure petrified precious pain,
And that’s how diamonds are formed.

When a man’s heart breaks,
Miles away it’s heard and called thunder,
His heart develops infinite fault lines,
And when it tries to heal itself,
It calcifies at each crack, Jaded,

Like it gazed upon a Gorgon,
And you call him stone hearted.
Or;
It just might crumble,
Despairingly disintegrating into dreary dust,
It leaves a void,
Then you call him heartless.

When a man hates,
It explodes,
Charring all it touches,
It leaves none in its wakes,
The heavens darken at the frown on his brows.
It implodes,
Quickly receding,
Till all that is left is a black hole,
Effectively existing in emptiness,
No more does it burn,
So you call him indifferent.

So forgive him,
For being,
Too jaded to love,
Too weak to cry,
Too hardened in pain,
Too empty to care,
Too tired to fight,
For when a man really feels,
When he loves, cries, hurts and aches,
It is,
Undivided, consuming, almost self-destructive,
Tales in a thousand tongues can’t tell it well enough.

God is My Barber

The sickness that made the Vulture bald
would have killed the Crow.

It is because
the gods are petty
and would not be questioned
about who they show favor to,
That Crows live to,
Squawk hysterically
At Vultures' misfortune.

We have come to understand, that,
when a petty god is your barber,
Crows, who can't afford a razor,
with their benevolent destinies,
will punctuate our precious peace
with their shameless snickering.

but
the Vulture
neither
pays any mind
nor
wages a war of words
with mockers and scoffers;
for the cure for baldness
is not found in the laughter of Crows...

My Second poem about Vultures. I really need to stop this...😂😂😂

Finding God

The inexplicable
Is proof there's a God.

This, for me,
Is where doubt began.
For if we know today
More than we did yesterday
Then, God is
a constantly contracting chamber of ignorance.

Now if it is so
And God is the Lord of gaps
Then men of religion
May be forgiven
For their unrelenting battle
Against knowledge;
The God killer.

But if God is
the beginning of wisdom
And his people perish
For lack of knowledge
And if we know today
More than we did yesterday

Then it stands to reason
That the God to believe in
Is an ever expanding explosion of knowledge.

I have no faith
In the God of gaps
For God must be Omniscient
And ignorance is not
This, for me, is where doubt ends.

Bedtime Epiphany of a Pining Heart

Tonight,
I contemplated
On things that were and were not,
On why
Light retracts different, in your eyes,
Like rainbows randomly ricocheting
Off my intangible thoughts,
Spellbinding...

On why,
Words sound different, on your lips,
How you laugh,
How the sounds take a path,
Across infinite dreams,
Into all my incarnations,
Into all my iterations,
Into all...

Tonight,
I concluded
You are a figment
of my imagination,
You must be...

For
God is not so cruel
That he made a Heaven like you
Then condemned me
To the Hell of perpetual longing
Wanting, and never belonging...
