The Closer We…


I am amazed at how with him I can speak
I can speak strong and passionately
I can be expressive and loud,
and still and quiet
anyway, I want to be,
he embraces my All


He’s so secure within himself,
he encourages it


He encourages my existence as a woman,
but moreso my existence as a
divine presence ascending

Up, up, up and away.

He doesn’t see me as being against him
He knows that I am for him
He knows that I adore him
He knows from where I come

He says, “lift your voice and sing.”

He and I take pleasure
in healthy and peaceful conversation
He and I take pleasure
in knowing and growing

We get even better, even hotter,
even toned, we,
are two sides of the same coin, we
toss and turn, and take risks
And at night, we return, we
convene, we
demonstrate, we
heal and find flow
so that in the morning we can co-create

He wants me to have a choice.

He isn’t interested in a woman who lies down
An actress,

doing things that turn her into a machine
He isn’t interested in a woman
“who knows how to treat a man”
Because he knows that the things men have

been taught to do are far from godly
are far from creating balance,
are far from harmonious living,
these oppressive trifles,
a performance full of comfortable distractions on the road to demise

I treat him like the god that he is
and so he goes deep within,
looking behind my eyes

He knows why the caged bird sings.

He wants me,
not for how willingly I can submit,
he wants me to be free, and
he knows that when I am uplifted,
my magic comes alive
He is, the B side to my A
Our records spinning
There’s no pretending
No disappearing, no MIA

His security is full of love
I feel safe even in his absence
He’s in my mind,
he came on time,
he’s big, he’s small, he’s fine
Fine in a way that ever so liberates
And as much stimulates,
I’ll give him what he needs
I’ll cover him when he bleeds
I’ll nurture his seeds, indeed
He is more than a man
I choose.
So glad that life is like the ocean
The tide comes in, oh the lessons we learn
The patience, the wisdom that comes when you seek it
He doesn’t tell me how to live my life
He listens and inquires and gives
He comes closer, so close I can feel his heartbeat
He wants to know how I became what I am
and I want to know him too
With no compromise

He is like the clouds in the sky
Shapeshifting, but consistent
He hears me.
Loud and clear.
He asks, “are you with me?”
I say, “I have always been with you.
I do.”

So the proverb is true

The man that silences a woman,
silences himself.

and so we both speak
with no measure, he

has reminded me of what love can do.

The closer we get.

Thank you for visiting.


No one ever leaves you…


All these memories, too much to lose
I don’t need faith, I just want you…

Old man, let me wipe your eyes
I’ve never seen you cry

Old friend, in our own sweet time
We’ll say a good, goodbye
All my life, I know by now

All these memories, too much to lose
No one ever leaves you
I don’t need faith, I don’t need truth
No one ever leaves you

You’d say, this is all there is
And every time you’d blink, you’d miss
another piece of this wondrous world

All I’d ask is why you’d leave so soon
Everybody seems to
I don’t need faith, I just want you
No one ever leaves you

Everybody raise a glass, oh, here’s to a good goodbye
Everybody raise a glass, oh, here’s to a good goodbye
Everybody raise a glass, oh,  here’s to a good goodbye
Oh, everybody raise a glass, oh

All these memories too much to lose
No one ever leaves you
I don’t need faith, I don’t need truth
No one ever leaves you
I don’t need faith, I just want proof

Goodnight and goodbye…

P.S. Dedicated to everyone who has ever been a part of my life, and for those who have crossed my path. Thank you.

A Love Supreme


I hear you Mr. Coltrane
Building and breaking down rhythms
Suspended, intensive tension
Creating transformative experiences that heal our souls
I hear you inside of me,
consuming me
Driving me to create and co-create,
allowing me this intuitive moment of recreation

I feel you engaging me and filling me with water
changing my molecular structure
giving me power and reminding me of who I am
I’m becoming her again
As I go through these motions
These hard bottoms,
the rug was pulled from beneath me and all I could do is
tune in to a mellow mood
I hear you
Making me remember where I come from
I see our ancestors lining up to hear you
Turiya joining, spiritual unity at its highest,
or low, improvise,
play me a song, so I can levitate
Trance, meditate,
towards be bop, I gravitate
I see you standing beside me, pushing me to my limits,
a love profound
Giving and receiving
your love Supreme
I am traveling in these abstract realms
Seeing to know
to live
to be
Closer to who I am, closer and closer
I change the track and let
it all come in
and another one, and another one
The flow is
Wonderfully droning, the waves
enlightening, the veil fades
As the world turns
I fast
Transcending even ethnic distinctions,
All illusions Demystified
An illness is cured
Bye bye blackbird
We are Rich with resources
This awakening,
Cymatic evolution

at peace

Love for self.  When you love yourself, everything changes.

Modern day proverbs and thoughts by Shila Iris

Thank you for visiting.

Word is Bond [6]


… not the mere knowledge of worldly things, the intelligence of self.

As I move towards this rare thing called “knowledge of self” I always want to tell the truth, I abandon secrecy to reach higher heights, I have respect for all things, I can see the light in the dark, I appreciate things opposite of myself, I have more balance, I choose harmony, I preserve myself, I am filled with reverence, I receive, I attract … and the list goes on.
