I contacted an alien
under torrents of glowing rain,
impatience throbbing
in a bottomless, passionate soul in storm.
I felt its awkward likeness and greeted
the texture of difference.

I got in touch with an alien,
its face lit from an unknown sun,
its ageless youth the answer to my answers
and, from across the border,
we touched, although the touch of my skin
was poison for its system,
we kissed, although its lips were like tentacles
and I felt a tight grip around my heart…
then we fell,
shaken with the rawness of a revelation.
We fell
deeper into awareness
deeper into the unknown…
from across the border
that we had betrayed:
a limit invisible to the
unleashed soul,
that only exists
in that part of one’s mind
where things are learned by heart,
repeated day and night,
until they are meaningless
- that’s where frontiers live.

I have spoken
to the alien,
forgotten how a voice should sound
(in a world of gravity and cables),
heard its signal of silence,
given away my mortality.
It hurt us both
skin, hair, carapace injured, broken,
but we learned
how to explode
of the word        “alien”
(we eloped and we will never return).

Another interestingly work of illusive reality Axilea, though it doesn't seem so when one reads through the very core of those thoughts you express...your escape and or grasp of the idea one can touch upon the skin of an Alien is like the galactic adventure into the universal invisibilities. One must learn oneself into the ability to become or join those worlds hidden within their own dimensions...

Axilea - Intriguing and complex poem. From the literal alien to the figurative all kinds of possibilities present themselves. I see it as speaking of the alien within ourselves that we must love to transcend

Especially liked:

a limit invisible to the
unleashed soul,
that only exists
in that part of one’s mind
where things are learned by heart,
repeated day and night,
until they are meaningless
- that’s where frontiers live.

and the last lines:

but we learned
how to explode
of the word “alien”
(we eloped and we will never return).

This is what happens when we grasp the unknown - a deeper understanding of life. Very original work with a sensual feel.

"alien" it is and such a unique piece, love it!
and oh please return ;)
Reviewed by Gianetta Ellis 10/7/2008
Crossing cosmic thresholds - akin to crossing thresholds we carry within; how can we separate the two? We each carry our aliens with us and in confronting and melding, we can transcend our state of being - evolve. Very insightful writing that is both intellectual and spiritual.

Axilea (a beautiful name): I love the writing, the rhythms, the
thought behind the writing. I felt the presence of the alien...
and love the wrap-up. -gene.

A cosmic cnidarian? Oooo, I hope not (remember Dani's poem?) But, to be spoken to--to speak without the restraints of gravity, tongue and gutteral throat-noise, what a dream-- like a whale song in your mind, sound waves bouncing from your id to your frontal lobe... just to hear your name spoken that way-- a Revelation's white stone holding your sacred name-- reverberating in your mind. What else could the truest of all loves be? Goodbye earth, to be sure! Words like 'alien', 'stranger'-- all sorts of stereotypes become cosmic dust... and weight shifts from shoulder and physical form, to words--to meaning--to depth. --Charlie
