City of Man

7 Jul 2020 1 minute read 0 comments MatTehCat

Motionless ocean, devoid of Life, No eye will ever see your limits; No shores or beaches will contain you; Your waters are darker than the void, For the depths of your being can’t be seen.   The city wall that constrains us all, Protecting us from th...

Truth, My Love

27 Jun 2020 1 minute read 0 comments MatTehCat

In you, I see all that could be. In you, I see rivalry. In you, I see desire. In you, I see the truth of all that's been shown through the fire.   But, oddly, it's not you, alone, that I love. It's not you, alone, that I hunger for. It's not you, alo...

Burning Books

Barbarians, not quite at the gates, But clamoring from within to destroy By good name, though embodying hate. The Truth may merely become a decoy.   A history of a suffering past, That no living person has ever seen, But its echoes still ripple, hard...

Birth

A world enveloped in flame,Purified of appearance’s trappings,Made essence. The lines of doubt washed away,Material’s spell broken and dissolved,One’s, of One. All that is exists for Him,And of all that is, is He the source,Wholly coiled. He speaks b...

White lilies in the blue lagoon, How I wish to save your beauty from the monsoon; To keep your petals pure and clean So that I may remember them within my dreams.   Harmonious and peaceful grove, I stand to keep you protected from destruction; Untouc...

Gift of Love

11 Jun 2020 1 minute read 0 comments MatTehCat

A man sits alone, looking through a window, Singing songs to the world to scrape on by. He watches his words, keeping tempo. His lyrical prowess comes from on high.   He praises the Creator for His gifts, The splendor of a candle in the wind; How in...

Serpents

A den of serpents writhed together in the dark,Their scales were intertwined, and their bodies were warm.Yet their abode was destroyed, and they, torn apart. The darkness forsook them, and they were brought to light,Slithering about slowly, waking fr...

Undying Flame

Universal Flame and Light; Sovereign, Majestic, And Divine Blaze beyond all imagination; Your faces and names exceed Man’s arithmetic: Without you, all would be less than nothing.   From you, all things are made, and by you, all things shaped; The Ce...

The Indomitable Wind and its Lessons

In and out, you gently And sweetly caress Life’s pain Away with your spirit.   Yet, unexpectedly, Your will can turn to madness, Move from stillness to wrath.   Spare me from your fury, Let me peacefully witness The terror of your rage.   Take your r...
