I was privileged recently to meet the soul of Neku Renea in the town of Royal Oak, Michigan. There are these rare individuals in one's life that when you speak to them, you know you have met an honest, a joyful, and innocent soul whose approach on being borders both on holiness and being sheltered. The difference with this person is he is not sheltered yet holds this non-judgmental perspective that is behind a desire to experience life and people where he can be himself. Though I don't see myself as on the level of that kind of that holiness, I am not eons away either, and all of us can relate to the desires and expressions of such individuals. I wanted to share some poems and thoughts of his here.
Morning to Night
Wake me up
with the presence of your morning kisses
And I'll wake you up
with whispers why I lay beside you.
Let your love pour
like a good cup of coffee
and my love will pour upon you
lasting longer than any fragrance.
Lay with me
with lips of silence
and let the energy of our souls
carry a conversation.
Look into my eyes
and witness my happiness
so that I may smile
as you discover your own reflection.
Then when the moon rises
let all I have to offer, cradle you to sleep
so that I may stare at a beautiful dream
sleeping in my reality.
Neku also comes up with various thoughts that are pretty profound for such a young man:
"We've all learned lessons and we've all made mistakes. Let our past be the motivation for our future and let failure fuel our success."
"The blanket of unconditional love, seems unrealistic to those who have adapted to the coldest of hearts".
Twenty two years of breathing
with a smile, that's so deceiving
bright eyes that gain your focus
with a wounded heart that goes unnoticed.
Oh free me and let the blood spill
with a fresh opened wound
so that thy heart may heal
but I was born with a weak stomach
I could never position a knife, for a slice
so I burn till the color of my skin turns
a sizzling sting with a silent scream
I live with temptation
that's worse than it seems.
Heaven is a place
where my body lies
in between your thighs
where our lips touch
and our tongues dance.
