The Zombies are such spiritually enlightened ones who give up the self
and follow the way.

The bloody headless ones have only the heart that is the path.

and the vampires, yes, who live forever know the immortal and teach your blood they place beyond.

In the foundation below the foundation 

or simply the FOUNDation that I am opening to you with the cheesed of yesod
and in love.
Why can't i just say what I mean, and say it and not be afraid

That you see it?

For you see it

I think we wanted to expand the world before the when we say this is all.

That you tell me what your eyes saw that day in the basement with signs of simplistic quotes of faith hung by preschool teachers.

And we can play and you enjoy when I'm myself. Deep in the forest of existence is the world of you're supposed to be. I'm not gonna write so that you love me, and I have noticed that when I care for you, I let you know that sometimes the face gets ripped off and finds the You you are.

I miss you
I’ve missed you.
I’ve missed knowing. 
I asked for this life.
I asked for what’s true.
People not on this path… are looking for you.

I am grateful to you. I am in newness of this. I am in love with you and think this could be in subtile ways very helpful. I will learn that honesty can align with glowing goodness and expansion- true, deep honesty. Love is so speakable and we can share that. We are here to be in sharing of what is here. I will tell you what I can about what is here in presence and peace. I am so sorry.

In all ways

You know them, and they display the love we feel when we enter the depths, when we expand beyond what we ever knew what good was or wrong was and light and dark. They say we're immortal, just playing a game, horror and terror, treasures in our chests. We'll make a sound and sing for you this golden cloth.
