You choose who You are

by choosing Your beliefs

My heart still believes

allthough deceived by destiny

 

It needs to choose light, always light

keeps it alive

or the longing just ends all

ends this life a little faster by pain

 

If You have chosen another path

then I`ll be freed from earths bound

for Yours was the only shadow that kept me here

 

Dreams taught me to fly and loose the form

and if You cry no more, then

I`ll bless You one more time, love

may Your path lead to the blooming flower and to heart of all things

 

Lonely and free

I`ll mingle my beeing

in the Great Divine

oh please Osiris, let me enter

home for good

Only the shaman saw

inside my mind

saw the total fatique

after the soul had seen it`s home

in a dream deeper than life

 

Walked down the staircase

of centurys

hidden in a cave shed my body like clothing

shadows on the rockwall accompanied

the beginning of flight

towards the tiniest bright light

 

high up

 

tunnel gets small and for a moment of despair

i`m doomed to dwell here

drawn to the light seen so far

 

remembered then

the essence can be

of any shape

not any more needed the human form

 

I enter

 

for a moment

then pushed back by gentle whisper

 

Waking in aching longing

tears follow trough mundane life

nothing matters yet everything counts

said the shaman with a wry smile

and walked away

 

 

 

 

Fear

 

my worst fear

after

to do all this again

from the beginning

circle of life

 

one`s supposed to love it

to join the life, the merry party

be strong, be tough, carry on like a lady

see no evil, praise the beauty

 

i see the beauty, but it holds nothing to me, anymore

all i feel is this strange calling

this pull, stronger than anything that used to matter

doubting is it real, or just fantasy

but i have no choise, it has taken all of me

and remains the only cause to carry on

 

 

 

Addiction

 

I see something pure when I look at You

under Your cover

Do You know how delicate You seem to me

under your addiction

 

Surely You know

I`m still here

just waiting for

 

They say You`re a coward

don`t they see where the wings were ripped off

You were loved for Your successes

did anyone care for Your emptyness

 

Surely You know

I`m only here

just waiting

Veils

 

Sometimes,

amongst people and busy work,

alone in the lush green woods,

or staring back in time under the milkyway,

I get this feeling,

like standing still in the eye of a storm.

At that very moment

I feel connected.

There is peace and harmony to be found,

sometimes a scent, just for a fragment of time,

or some other faint clue

of Your presence,

somewhere.

 

May it be now,

past or future,

here or in other realms,

imagination or the absolute truth,

it is enough,

for me to long only for You,

to love.

Again, without a doubt

I`ll go on until found and united,

once more.

 

Blink of an eye,

the veil settles back down

and everything is gone.

I`m left with just an internal bleeding,

this ripped, skinless feeling,

nerves are bare, music fading.

 

Moments like those they nearly ended me,

but hey, getting better at this beastly play,

embracing now the pain,

`cause the rest,

 

it is all gone.

White

 

In the middle of nowhere

 

secluded place

 

inside a blank painting

 

thick falling curtain

 

covering the prints leading here

 

and wiping away the destiny

 

cold and warm seeping in one another

 

pure white above, as below

 

muffled sounds of a sleeping forest all around

 

silent rest in the calm loneliness

 

 

Someday i`ll stay

How come loving one soul

 

can balance the scale,

 

where on the other side

 

you see hunger and pain,

 

cruelty, evil, sickness and fear

 

of the whole wide world.

 

And on the other hand,

 

loving this one single soul

 

makes it all somewhat bearable.

 

Such foolish thing

 

love is

 

to me.

leikattu kivi

 

sisäpinta karhea, rosoinen

 

täynnä tietoutta muodosta joka siltä puuttuu

 

tietous joka määrittää sen nimen toiseksi

 

se ei ole enää kivi,

 

palanen

 

jostakin kokonaisuudesta

 

nyt jo näkymättömästä.

 

 

aika hioo uuden pinnan

 

kätkee katseilta näennäisesti

 

sisäpinnan raa´an kaipuun

 

jonka tuntiessaan muistaisi

 

suuremman

in shadowland your hunt is so swift

 

your search ongoing for too long

 

catched glimpses sometimes

 

and like bloodhound you charged after them

 

your poison, your chi

 

so close there in shadows

 

 

but here, in this land between

 

they think such thirst is only found in tales

 

while licking your veins

 

rest a while but know, you can´t stay

 

return to your shaded chase

 

and growl out your eternal thirst

 

so the prey knows

 

the hunt is on

Hunter without game

 

 

Dream of coming home

 

to a place where only souls arrive

 

May I rest, Osiris, don´t make me go back, Osiris

 

 

I´ve failed, erred so badly, didn´t I ?

 

Why no will to go on without

 

why do I die without

 

You

 

 

I

 

Incapable of love

 

incapable of living

 

I am done searching

 

for mysteries

 

for God

 

You

 

 

I´m sick of the play I encounter every day

 

What justifies the world without

 

a higher goal

 

What justifies my life without You

 

I´ve failed, erred so badly, didn´t I

 

Hunter without game

 

May I rest ,Osiris, don´t make me go back, Osiris

 

 

Too weak at heart

 

to search for the one

 

who weaved the dream

 

Entwined in mine were Yours too

 

Erred so badly, haven´t I

 

Why was I awakened to be

 

failed hunter, vanish to dust

 

 

I deserve it Osiris, shreds around the Universe

 

Divided will be the pain

 

Divided the despair

 

Divided the love, Osiris

 

 

 

Striding along

 

 

Have You lost it too

 

reason to keep on breathing

 

and believing

 

 

Did it cast You

 

this deep too ?

 

And what was Your reason to stop the bleed,

 

master again the time fleeing ?

 

 

I keep on walking

 

these paths I´ve chosen

 

At best

 

I feel nothing

 

I want nothing

 

I am nothing.

 

Friend, is this the state of the enlightened

 

or the dead ?

 

 

But when the night falls

 

do You relive it too, knowing it´ll kill You,

 

that warmth around the fire

 

And do You long for the impossible, again

 

crave for that touch

 

to the depths of Your soul

 

Do You feel all You had

 

in You to give

 

before the silence

 

 

I try to keep on walking

 

these paths in front of me

 

At best

 

I feel nothing

 

I wan´t nothing

 

I am nothing

 

Friend, is this eternity

 

or was it the life before?

listen to the hymn of stars

 

and you can hear

 

all those moments

 

thought to be lost in time

 

all those specks of dust, singing

 

and somewhere there

 

one that cares

Following those

 

salty drops on poets prints

 

leading to a world behind smoke and shadow

 

granting access to immortal and unending landscapes

 

 

part of you then forever bound to wonderlands

 

plain in sight at that last day lunar light

 

 

images and lore of words

 

enchants your longing for that world

 

to grow

 

wild wild roses

 

 

 

 

Odottavan aika on pitkä... :P

Music

 

 

Shivering, feeling like all the blood has fled

 

and ran into the heart.

 

There`s this odd, swelling sensation that erupts as dripping tears;

 

joy, wonder, fear, doubt, and somehow, all the colours..

 

What can I say that haven't been said a thousand times, or more?

 

I say it anyway. You`re in my heart.

 

 

I´m shaken.

Of Life

 

hey marionette inside

 

all the breathing beating like stormy season

 

when wide open

 

blasting joyously into flames by careless warmth witnessed

 

only desperate dance clenches away the sorrow that wrenches apart, into coldness

 

when touched by opposite and left in dark

 

living with all encompassing heart

 

agony

 

 

and Agape

 

at some scarcely rare

 

cherished moment of harmony sensing

 

`how may a snowflake exist in a raging fire´

 

 

breath in courage, traveller

 

shut them, step into it

 

swirling fountain of diversity, time and space

 

waves of luminous Force Major

 

look further and beyond

 

find all of that limitless infinite web of life

 

high, low and the sideshow

 

breath out the boundaries set

 

love includes all

 

if not, is it the Source

 

or just a beginning

 

all roads united at last stop if the tale is true

 

if not, then lets not talk about love

 

but division

 

 

bend by the prism of this realm

 

each light coming from one

 

giving out myriads of hues

 

that the rainbow seals

 

beloved mystery to what we´ re all given a key

harmaalla taivaalla alati muuttuvat muodot

 

tuulen tilassa tanssivat pilvet

 

valo pisaroi havujen kärjissä

 

hengitän pihkan tuoksua

 

 

kuulen maan kaipaavan huokauksen

 

aallon vetäytyessä kauemmaksi

 

ennen uutta omistavaa virtausta valloittamilleen kallioille

 

merellä sinun silmäsi

 

 

muistan kesäauringon kipuamisen

 

kuinka maan sylissä lepäävän veden läheisyys

 

sai lintuni lentoon

 

sulan kosketuksen lähetin

Birds view

 

 

There it stands

 

the dark man at the other end

 

guard of the blooming field

 

throwing deadly threats in the wind

 

Gloomy figure towering the sky

 

casting shadows, blackening the sight

 

floating rags, keep away

 

whoever comes wont last a day

 

don't wait for night, frosty bite

 

A doomed fight

 

 

And there it is

 

cursed creature of old tales

 

ragged bird fled from battlefields

 

Bones used for wishing

 

its flight a bad omen

 

claws and beak meant to tear the dead

 

wings to carry souls, steal all bright

 

eyes to bring pain and memories

 

Heart captivated

 

it can not flee, bring it all on

 

and even more

 

 

There they are

 

sharing a soil and scenery

 

one telling a story of a sad clown

 

to a broken healer

 

Equally frightened

 

not for death and shadow

 

but the life they see

 

in each other

 

 

Spiraling universal irony

 

dark side of love

 

the circus for the lost

 

Bring it on

 

and even more

Midwinter and it broke free

 

I assume it got help from a tune

 

soft words and melody of an eve

 

Reason tried its best, ´ you can never be enough

 

for such a vast realm, give it a rest`

 

But heart, it went on, led me to a tranquil sleep

 

showed a way to the yearned dream

 

 

Total surrender to a feel

planeettojen hiljaiseen huminaan

 

pääsee valloilleen

 

täyttymätön kipunoi kaipuutaan

 

äärettömyyteen jähmettyvät kiteiset pisarat

 

hetken viiltävän

 

olla ehjä

 

alla ikiaikaisen

 

 

lohtunsa suo pimeyskin

 

kumu tähtien välinen

 

kelle valo sydämensä liian kaukainen

 

vaan matkata voi kaikkeuden kantamana

 

tuulen kuiskaava häivähdys

 

tunnetko sen väreilyn

 

läpi huntujen

 

alati kasvaen

Riisuudu nyt

kanssani, kokonaan

Jätetään petettyjen epäilevä haarniska

ja rikkoutuneiden sirpaleinen iho

Tahdon koskettaa sinua

sipaista unelmiasi

tässä hetkessä suudella kuin olisimme ehjiä

ikuisuuden vapaita lapsia

uudelleen

light under thunder dark

 

thrilling beacon, chilling sea

 

river of sound from throbbing heart

 

words under earth and rooftop morning glow

 

somewhere there underwater mirror image

Over and out

 

 

highway up in the sky

 

remainds me of you

I felt when I broke something

 

you did the rest

 

clean cut that shouldn´t hurt

 

and I do

 

I do think of you

 

pieces of a puzzle you gave

 

and hooked

 

please keep me near you as I do you

 

travel lightly

 

I wish for you

bringing forth that unsung power inside

seeping in dreams again

following the threads of lives

careful not to get lost like you did before

and yet long to, again

to loves enchantment and pulse

how sweet is the pain of us who love and never meet such depth revealed

 

that one look your doom

recognized the unleashed something waiting behind the door

of manners and agreeable life

the thirst and pull denied, running wild in the blood

i sometimes gaze too deep

and embody the call of the moon

oh brother wolf

i am the bear

i am the shapeshifter whose alter ego is ten different things

i am fighter if there is a cause

i am love rest of the time

deep as ocean

i fly high and in another dimensions

i wander under earth and pet the snakes that guard the gates

i dance in dreams and change it all

guided by thunderbolt

i bring something else with me from my travels

something else to heal the world

i do not know why i am one of the travellers

or who is the cause

i am the gate between worlds

and i am not the only one

am i

 

many are called

but few are chosen

i do my deeds

for the force

i am

whenever alone 

and rest of the world sleeping

or looking away

 

it sneakes in with soft, silent paws

sits down in the corner and waits

waits for me to acknowledge it´s irresistible being

and for the moment it can level me with it´s gaze

 

i tamed it long ago

but the gaze, it speaks of the wild still

and silently i cry so the world won´t notice

i cry after the strong howls and tender snowflakes

soulfull caresses and the evergreen

 

oh the world is good to me

so i´m ashamed of the cry

i get an understanding nod from the corner

and it leaves as swiftly as it came

to travel alone in the shadowy paths of summer nights

it´ll come again, changed but not tamed as it is
