Beware!

They will want to drink you

in

to fill their empty hearts

and dizzying heads

Beware!

the most dangerous

sleep alone

and stare at the stars

without big ideas

Beware!

Of lovers

who need more love than they can give

A soul takes years to fill

the overflowing one

is rare

it feeds itself

when it has done things in the right way

Beware!

Most people quench their emptiness

with holes that leak

into hidden darkness

You are but a distraction

an amusement

to them

as you dance on hot coals

with calloused feet

and cool contemplation

Beware!

of ravenous

souls

that compare themselves

with other wolves

wanting what they can’t have

devouring

without mercy

smiling

afterward

through perfect teeth

Beware!

Those who think they understand

and need to explain

everything

what they don’t know

they don’t care to know

and what they can’t control

they hate

Beware!

Of this life

that takes you

in competitive circles

until you become dizzy

needing things that don’t matter

When you find peace

you will know it

Suddenly,

all things

fall away

and you are left

with your unrelenting

pleasure

’til the end of your days.
