City Glow ( A Thought By James J )

I spend a lot of nights looking out of my window at the city. The lights are beautiful. They flicker and dance all over the streets and skyline. Their glow ignites my soul. I can feel the desire to explore them in my bones. Every golden orb holds the light to an unwritten story. I sometimes wonder what each little glow is casting itself upon. A first kiss? A  car engine roaring to life? A couple realizing that they’ve met their soul mate as they walk along the sidewalk with hands intertwined? All these lights give me hope. They give me a sense of inspiration. They give me a sense of wonder. They give me the desire to explore. I won’t stop until i write a story under every single one of them.      

   

Sanctity ( A Poem By James J )

Your hands open like flowers

Your eyes flutter like the breeze

Your hair sways like the leaves

Your mouth moves like the tide 

 

My heart is made of stone

My feet are rooted in the ground

My arms are bound by vines

My head is filled with mud

 

From the cracks in my heart flowers grow

From the roots in my feet the wind moves me

From the vines on my arms your leaves dance

From the tide of your lips the mud is washed away

Desires ( A Poem By James J )

i stand upon the edge of the earth

looking out upon infinity

my desires are to be free

but a soul bound by desires cannot be free

 

i scream but no sound is heard

for i am a ripple in the strumming of chords

a leaf floating in the winds of time

pushing me towards my destiny

 

beauty surrounds me as i open my eyes

my lungs are filled with the seduction of air

sunlight glimmers off this canvas of land

and spreads over this endless earth

 

beauty is but a flicker in the candle of life

it is eventually extinguished and replaced

darkness uncloaks itself and poses as fear

fear drives us to spill blood for beliefs

 

salvation is preached but not understood

for death does not require salvation

death only requires us in the end

but it is in death that we find beauty

 

the beauty of life is that it does not last forever

immortality would veil us in darkness

for a life lived bound by endless desires

is a life in which we would never be set free

 

 

Surrender ( A Poem By James J )

my fingertips trace the crease of your back

your hair falls down your shoulders in waves

you are a drug and i am an addict

i will overdose a thousand times and crave more

 

your lips are my escape

this world could burn in endless flames

ashes could fall and blanket the earth

i would still be lost in this heaven with you

 

my hands gently press against your chest

i feel the pounding of your heart in my palm

your fingers intertwine with mine

my lips kiss your neck as you breath me in

 

my walls have been turned to glass

you have shattered every last one of them

the floor is filled with an endless reflection

my surrender to you is absolute
