Kissing you
Hear as my silence is
(PART V)

We merge alone together now
While life has intercourse with time

Logic is replaced by an unending full body orgasm
All shadows join to kiss the dark of love forms us lightly

You may
    For the life of every reason you ever believed
Trust nothing
You may
    Leave love and give survival it’s eternal reality
          Of war and mirror or simply be here

Hear as my silence is kissing you
To become the make of human divine love we aliens all
There is no other ending bye and bye the sleep of worlds

There is no exchanging your eternity for victory over anything
Welcome to lessons born loving the end of ever last lesson born
When the last sound is a tender silent kiss

Hear as my silence is yours as your harms end heard

Kissing you
Hear as my silence is
(PART IV)

The move of your mind is free
To dance and bare no harm to come or go by you

Emotions and thoughts surface
You are your lips and tongue and the air of become

Soft and silently as the honesty you are here
Within all’s listen

You are the soul mystery found
Joining the sacred questions going home, home, home…

The equilibrium of spirit and physical
And the UnderConscious rise

The receive of conscious released by the give returns
To be conscious of all within and without

You are being

Kissing you
Hear as my silence is
(PART III)

You can understand the spiritual physics of laughter’s sensuality

Relieved as the evaporation of need or control
Naked as the death of want shamelessly
Clothed by nothing left to hide
Wearing no fear as I kiss you inside

You can feel within and be flightless from nothing holds you
You become harmony and not the answer to need running away
And you have in no way lost any responsible power to be embodied
You have lost no accountability in form or thoughts’ shape

You become no less than one being
You become you
You become no more than one being
You are choice bound by nothing absent of your soul core whisperings

Not to be denied you exist in the share of all
Eventually given the end of any lie or innocence over
Every door of peace through any fear appears were there was harm
Every moment now unfolding true into the fluid of honesty’s teach

You are home

Kissing you
Hear as my silence is
(PART II)

You are being now
You find you are returned by the touch of air
You can heal now and not hold real to pain’s priority
You cannot ever own the end of a story that defeated love
To be hate and hated can not be

Kissing You
Hear as my silence is
(PART I)

You are the proof of love lives
And the end of lonely is the completion of alone

You are the fall of reality into the home of all is
Shared

The finish of time limited by possessions of measuring form
And the beginning of peace is forming

Always
With the next last breath’s coming

Art is the First Voice by C.C Arshagra

Oddball is happy to present the first of what we hope will be ongoing contributions from C.C. Arshagra a poet who has worn many hats at Stone Soup and the New England poetry scene. Having recently featured at Stone Soup on New Year’s Eve 2012, C.C. is starting up his publishing company press22publishing while hosting his weekly radio show (“The I Do Not Know Show”) on WESU, 88.1 FM, in Middletown, CT at Wesleyan University. The show is archived and episode #71 can be heard here. Next week, we present the first of a never seen series from C.C.

 

Art is the first voice

Art is the first voice
The sound lasting
Beyond us
The insight is through
The receiver; going through the center of their mind closed

No beauty is dictated
No demands of art are made
No reasons need to be obeyed
Entertainment is a facade at best
Fine is a birthing death that will out live you are here going

Never mattered alone is when you lived

The fail of dedications’ foresight seen throughout its lessons are
The uncompromised silence of your voice unafraid ofyou will die
The marriage to exposing the process of unfolding safety or survival’s
       way
The worth of too much truth to wake
For honestly –alive is too frightened without art
