Stage Fright


A brilliance of light, hot piercing needles, bright—he stands beneath them
Light and heat, the weight of it burns him, sets his Id on fire

Illusions burst, worms of confusion slither and hollow his belly
Amplified voice barely audible, echoes resounding

A pounding inside his head, bells peeling alarm, tinging with dismay
The shaking begins, the axe, a tangle of strings and chords

Plucked into order, the audience in agape, settle in their seats
Wait for the music, Dionysius, fraught expectations

He dreams of the tortoise, the desire of seclusion, seeking an escape
To be, and not to be, the enigma trapped between poles

Torn apart by fear, the strains of desire, discord as the pressure mounts
Flee for the dark of an anonymous pool, cool serenity

Fade


An enigma hides
Mountains blanketed in mist
Invisible pass

A dirge in my heart
The funeral pipes and drums
The dark god dances

The luring of bells
The memory of love, splintered
Bright embers fading

Incandescent charms
Burn briefly against the night
Falling to the ground

The ashes of dreams
The infinite murmuring
The eternal flight

Enigma

Sing to the unknown
In the place where shadows fall
The pipes are calling

The bell has been rung
Echoes murmur in the tide
In waves resounding

The mind alighting
The flicker of a candle
Glows beneath the shroud

Secrets in the night
Love-dreams of the infinite
Cross the Milky-way

Reaching for the stars
Driven from the darkened cave
Ethereal flight

Soar the Astral plane
Surfing with the Alien

In cosmic fire, born

Dance

The cosmic movement, everything is motion

Everyone is dancing, we do not dance alone

I, and I are never alone

Never mind the dark and silence

Never mind the space, empty all around us

I, and I are always present

I enigma, I of the heart and mind

I friend, I foe, I and I, we are


The cosmic movement, everything in motion

Everyone is dancing, we do not dance as one

Veiled, and distant as I, and I are

Goat footed Pan is god of the dance,

God of fear, god of lust, god of wild places

I, and I are always present

I enigma, I of the heart and mind

I friend, I foe, I and I, we are



The cosmic movement, everything in motion

Everyone is dancing, we do not dance as one

Veiled, and distant as I, and I are

Brother to the thunder, wailing on his pipes

His song is the wind of loneliness, and panic

I, and I are always present

I enigma, I of the heart and mind

I friend, I foe, I and I, we are


The cosmic movement, everything is motion

Everyone is dancing, we do not dance alone

I, and I are never alone

The lightning and thunder, split

Hearts rupturing beats apart, I


Bursting in the light of eternity, I
