The Gifted One

Troubled Waters

Raging within the essence of life

Tsunami caught, typhoon strife

Peace be still

Sipping from the bitter cup of its lover’s fill

Wants, Needs, Hurt I bleed

Standing tall

Mirror Mirror on the wall

Scorpion words, erected blocks falls

Blind ripples troubled water calls

Scorned by truth

Mentality coveted, surrendered, and now reduced

Emotional veil has been lifted

Ocean currents angrily has been shifted

Tidal waves of souls washed up, and now has drifted

Waterfalls given, streams of dreams sailing away

No shoreline to rescue, as waves fiercely slay

Underwater, I slowly go

Aquarian nature propels the flow

Where the horizon greets, only God will ever know

Breaths of life above sinking depth

Troubled waters give unto the heart, mind, and soul its divinity rest

Dream Weaver

Staff dipped in troubled waters, calamity’s reliever  

Motionless to the hearts of passionate achievers

Emotional believers

Universal conceives

Troubled Waters

      Likewise, and thank you Candlewitch for commenting on my poem. However, I am a tad curious in regard to the meaning behind your user name; it could mean absolutely nothing, just as is. I only inquired because, it’s a unique name within itself, and its ironic we share the same air sign. One thing I could add, our minds are always aligned with the stars, the constellations, and the universe does whisper to us, it has, and it will always be our greatest inner muse. Have a great day as well.

        I am wiccan and I believe that thoughts have energy. I light candles and *wish good (or white) thoughts (and healing thoughts to others) my "dark energy or thoughts" I write down as dark poems under the name of: eddy styx. that way I don't harm anyone and at the same time I get the darkness out of me for a while. I like what you wrote in your comment to have a lovely soul and it shows :)
