Hafez \/ Austin Osman Spare

I speak frankly and that makes me happy:
I am the slave of love, I am free of both worlds.

I am a bird from heaven's garden. How do I describe that separation,
my fall into this snare of accidents?

I was an angel and highest paradise was my place.
Adam brought me to this monastery in the city of ruin.

The hours' caress, the pool and shade trees of paradise
were forgotten in the breeze from your alleyway.

There is nothing on the tablet of my heart but my love's tall alif.
What can I do? My master taught me no other letter.

No astrologer knew the constellations of my fate.
O lord, when I was born of mother earth which stars were rising?

Ever since I became a slave at the door of love's tavern
sorrows come to me each moment with congratulations.

The pupil of my eye drains the blood from my heart.
I deserve it. Why did I give my heart to the darling of others?

Wipe the tears from Hafiz's face with soft curls
or else this endless torrent will uproot me.

Hafiz - Ghazal 44 - "The Green Sea of Heaven" - Elizabeth T. Gray Jr

we're building a house of the future together / what would i do without yu?

sayin these words but i don't know you'll ever see them
i feel like i'm swimming thru weeds when i feel your fingertips pull away in water
your fear eyes pull away in the water
green eyes
yu said i used to swim

love, would you
think aside the symbols a moment,
cuz there's a wide open-temple inside
every action we did
everything we didn't
clean smell of your spice, I visit your temple in the morning
and sacrilege is so far below us
and if i wasn't there, i'm sorry
but i'm comin home so soon
i don't ever wanna be sorry again

Chamu'el ~ Iofi'el ~ soul calls Sapphire i take you in my hand
will you be warm can't say i wasn't warned

two steps on the water now
i see your hand reach down
you touch my fingertips below the surface
bring me towards your Crown

Spirit Wait
Fetish Disippate
Spell away
I will wait

Sean yu are love
and I will wait

'Tamaryn' - - lush + smoky shoegaze

'R always rosehair'

I see the poet younger
and I’m rendered inept

i’m addicted to your past
dust before the glass of experience

our haRlEm sumMer

R always changing (spell won't break)
- - neveR change (Fetish dissipate)

that thing

Shed blood now in deference

to youth ride Chaos

and you will be a legend to
if like, that really matters

'moon is like the sun tonight'

Moon is like the sun tonight

first of 18 years
wide open Eye watching you tonight

it's always been there
should your will falter

Tonight your tongue is the
altar Tonight

And any will but that to give up the self to the Beloved is black magic

Bells: yours-was-armour-no one

plastic bags are rustling in the trees

my love is not your disease

the gaze knells cold sky wall of sound
pump ethereal melt away forces of
hatred aversion and pride self pity

vajra give what daddy don't

crystals meet and you're not

just a boy sees
No Moon

spring equinox tomorrow - moon will look at you tonight like open blinding eye. light a candle, tattoo yourself, cook a meal, confess to something. create something outside yourself. i really think that we can all benefit from some selfless creation - whatever your ceremony is, let your intentions dissolve, forget yourself, and give back to the spirits. they are older than you.

aint no incubus - letter to boy, running - -

love in mind
claim in me

i see u underneath my eyelids
so it's easier when i'm asleep

you helped me sleep you cleaned my eyelids
underneath whatever caked
i saw your beautiful intentions

you nor i aint a fuckin griffin
boy we aren't emerging thru fog
in your dreams are my eyes
green like that dog we knew

if i was close enough to brush your
i wouldn't have to complete sentences
searing meaning in your glances
there is settled soul beneath poetics

you know
i just wanna make you smile

jesu, 'silver' tryptich

if you gaze too hard
glazed former taint
you'll realize god
is innocent

- - - - - - -

you wave from far
inside the waves
underwater it
sounds the same

- - - - - - -

breathing star
need never beg
all good truths
inside your head

jesus and mary chain, 'cracking up'

kate bush, 'running up that hill'


shadow on the wall

i knew I would see your shadow on the wall
only minutes after you leave.

cruel exaction of destiny
no love in expiation

I like to stand against it
so my heads where yours would be
and when time is cotton in my mouth

find myself imitating you sometimes
find myself seeing your shoulders fill the green shirt I touch
where I lay my head

i palm the wall
you once asked if I was real
I palm the place you pushed

I’ve rushed so much
thinking the end
but when I learn the change in my skin
i’ll wait grace breaks over masculinity
life begins please
join me
i bless you
no fear in future

the bliss should
return you home

where i'll always be - -

heaven was the sun inside your eyes
regret is nothing but a disguise

cuz underneath this callow skin
and as this lonely sphere yet turns
your sun still burns
