in the end

Posted in jason elijah's poems with tags , , on March 8, 2012 by jason elijah

in the end
the soul appears
before a world
perfectly clear
with eyes that see
and ears that hear
a thousand angels
drawing near
their joyous laughter
fills the sky
we are “us”
no longer “I”
and to the heavens
all ascend
a new beginning
in the end

spilling seeds

did you forget his name
already they all
become the same
why even learn
if it’s such a struggle
not to burn
why even turn
when the same way
is just too easy
so keep going
is it personal treason
to keep blowing
for no other reason
than to take the seeds
and hold them dear
as no one holds
the ones already here

bleeding / black holes

Posted in jason elijah's poems with tags , on July 10, 2011 by jason elijah

“bleeding”

what have you got to show
for it
for yourself
if anything
why show it
why bleed for anyone

halfway there
and stopping
too soon
you fool
just keep going
just be there



“black holes”

eyes
those holes
black holes
never know
when you go there
who is calling to me
who is being me
am I even myself
selfless or selfishly
seeing all things
as myself
through eyes
becoming black holes

the feel box

is it real only to you
is reality
a thing we choose
or sit right down
beside the snake
sit down and just
wait
just wait
for the turning tune
the next phase
of the moon
is it really too soon
to show
to be
to know
to see
a change in me
all these strange things
following
calling
holding on
falling
down so many wells
just wonder if I
can really tell
if it’s real
if we’re healing
completely feeling
anything

both sides are

claw?
gnaw?
Saw?
it freaked
me out
shout?
spout?
spraying like
that
we sat
begat?
no, not
that
wanting
and learning
the curse of
yearning
burning?
of course
so easy to tell
there is no Heaven
without a Hell

a poem about virgin birth

Posted in The Spirit, what I'm reading with tags , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2011 by jason elijah

I recently came across this poem by Angelus Silesius, a 17th Century German mystic and poet…

If by God’s Holy Ghost thou art beguiled,
There will be born in thee the Eternal Child.

If it’s like Mary, virginal and pure,
Then God will impregnate your soul for sure.

God make me pregnant, and his Spirit shadow me,
That God may rise up in my soul and shatter me.

What good does Gabriel’s “Ave, Mary” do
Unless he give me that same greeting too?

“Hold On” (a sonic poem)

I recorded this “sonic poem” a few minutes ago. I haven’t been singing much lately, so it’s a rarity.

“Hold On” lyrics by jason elijah

hold on
to what you’ve got
don’t hold on
to what you’ve got
you just let it go
just tell me no
just hold on
just hold on
let it go

hold on
no, no, no, no…

just hang out for
a little while
just hang out
and nod and smile
just hang around
and take what you want
and just go, go away

just hang on
to nothing at all
just tell me
oh, nothing about it
I don’t want to know
just hang around and
take what you need
and then let go
let go of me
just let me be
here alone
