The lot of this world are mere cavemen, still fresh and immature in thought and nature from the hole they crawled out of…
Squirrelly in action, violently trying to get that nut, not knowing why the compulsion drives them, while many others sit on the beach sunning themselves as the tsunami(s) roll ashore, smiling as their children make sand castles in the grand shadows of the approaching waves.
The sex was going great until the pills wore off
and the world spun out irate.
I had only just started really getting into her when it was
suddenly all done.
Fuck Yeah, Life Be Trippin' like that...
Why can't it be like when I was six, just
daydreaming and having fun.
Forts, bicycling, and ice cream under a
frantic delicious daze of days in the sun.
Nowhere and everywhere at once I was.
Life be trippin' now boy.
I've never been the same since that
feeling of being six.
After that was when the world
stopped making sense.
Everybody a problem, and every problem
of theirs belonging to you.
Yeah, life be trippin' deep. and I'm drowning,
Drowning in this life that keeps coming, and flowing
and washing over me.

Once I was her Prince in courting, now I am her Kingly Husband kneeling and she my Queen and Wife, Unwavering in love am I, full of autumnal dreamings never ceasing for the life and lives we will lead together bound fast in charms and enchantments that no witch or warlock could tear asunder.
With pressed kisses we did call all the magics of the Universe to bear witness upon our oaths felt true from heart to heart as the elementals of Earth, Fire, Air and Water danced around our two spirits embracing
She is my love, and if a single tear of hers should fall, then so one of mine She is my future, and my present filling me with a need to always be hers in friendship, in trust, in passions, and in love. Steadfast
I wake up early
Laying there in the dull
Aches, pains, tensions, and worries
Some I expect and accept, others I reject.
The rejected ones
Need to leave me be.
Perhaps this is what being
is for me.
Has always been
This conflicted contentment
This feared future
Not ever defined
Until it comes to pass
These runaway days
I chase after but they
fade, fade, fade
But I breathe a whispered
fuck you Mr. Future.
And get up when
the sun shines through
into my room.
Kiss you on the
And enjoy this
I fear the tangle
and the untangling
I want the nearness
but want to runaway
I fear words spoken
in the light of day
but want those
whispered in my
ear in the dark in
Fear and Want Juxtaposed
Side by Side

Since it’s the 50 year Anniversary of Star Trek, and I’m a big nerd at times, I thought I would share some quotes from their various shows and movies down through the years that stick out in my mind….:)
“Infinite diversity in infinite combinations.” Spock from Star Trek (from Vulcan Philosophy)
“Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. But I rather think that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because they’ll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we’ve lived. After all, Number One, we’re only mortal.” Cpt. Picard from Star Trek Next Generations.
“Things are only impossible until they are not.” Cpt Picard to Data
“After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but is often true.” Spock (1967)
Space: The final frontier These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise Its 5 year mission To explore strange new worlds To seek out new life and new civilizations To boldly go where no man has gone before
