rick springfield is my patron saint

this is a journal page from just over a year ago, one of several horned images of myself i have drawn

so i was on the third season of lucifer & feeling guilty about binging on a network tv show when i realized that it was based on a neil gaiman character (one of my favorite male writers) thereby relieving me of my guilt.
the tv show has inspired thinking points for me in my latest embracing of my darkness via my “fallen” series.
and then today
after having a friend put 18 hours of music on a thumbdrive so i had music in my car, i realized i had forgotten all about rick springfield.
so i went to google him and realized he has seemingly been creating non-stop since the 80s–when i listened to his music because my big sister was in love with him.
his latest album the snake king, has angels, demons, god, the devil, and the underworld all through it.
huh.
it’s pretty dark & pissed off & has a twangy sound to it–which is not what i expected.
but this is not a review of rick springfield.
it is my own wondering about how when you start looking at the world in a different way, the world is only too happy to comply by dropping crumbs in your path.
being a recovering catholic, i have been both drawn to & repelled by my own darkness as well as any dealings with demons & devils.
since embracing them…new doors are opening & i am being shown the threads that bind us all together.
or, at least, i am listening to rick springfield & thinking deep thoughts.

fallen

what if
one day
you woke up
thought it was a dream
but then
remembered
you were the devil
fallen
angel
whatever
the archangel lucifer
you are
fallen
from good
pure evil
& darkness
except you had forgotten
& then you were all
well!
that explains a bunch
you know
dark thoughts
dark deeds
able to see into the hearts of men
a
constant
struggle
to
be
good
of course you are
the
devil.

i might play around with this idea some more. maybe stick to the free verse…maybe switch to prose. sure, it’s a done topic. but i still find it compelling.
the balance
between
dark &
light.
i love love love my angels & demons.
