Chemsex Conundrum

rainbow

They were the men who were shiny and buff

Had the right friends and had the best drugs

Danced through their 20s on podiums  and bars

Always chased but rarely loved

The mashed up, beautiful men have scars

Now they sit at home with lovers

Grateful for comfort and finding sex with others

Or live alone, after all these years

With a need to escape the regrets, the tears

The party starts and stays at home these days

Men on the phone, instant delivery

Breeding an over-dependence

On the wrong kind of chemistry.

Why do men take (so many nasty) drugs to have sex with each other?

When sex itself is the hottest drug on earth, after love

The studies tell us it’s because we’re lonely

In the atomised nuclear society

Guys declare it’s to release inhibition

And set the inner pig free

I say these are things

That could be fixed so easily

At the core drugs are a substitute for intimacy.

Men need more spaces to meet

Not sex clubs closing down

The bedroom is becoming the new closet

There’s more to the game of sex than dial-a-mate

Is it getting harder than ever for men to relate?

Shame is at the root of our sexual  crises

That doesn’t get healed by our mobile devices.

It’s up to US to cultivate brotherhood, to open our hearts and minds…

To face our own demons, our wounds and our fears

To discover our spiritual destiny as queers:

In our sex  games  we play with divine energies of creation

We open gates to spirit in our chase for elation.

conundrums

Sex connects us soul to soul

As well as body to body

Good sex lifts us into the realms of Bliss

To the feeling that life doesn’t get any better than This

That feeling does not come from a needle or a pipe

It comes from our own inner source of Light

We raid that source like highwaymen

HIGH GAY MEN HIGHWAYMEN

Raiding the lost ark of consciousness

Unaware we are, and have always been

The witches, the warlocks, the shamans, the fools

Who use sex, herbs and love as our tools

To enchant the world and heal the sick

To open the gates and conduct the magick.

Seems more and more men getting lost in the darkness

But if they make it back from the fight

They  come back as warriors, wounded but wiser

With maybe an urge to help others avoid the plight

Of chemsex induced insanity and subsequent emotional collapse

But change may not be coming overnight –

The dark path calls many of us who are shamanic souls

Who need to face darkness, energy, crisis

As part of the journey to becoming Whole.

The chase for bliss, for connection, for ecstatic, expansive feelings of freedom

Is the GodSelf inside us bursting to get out

So that we and he might get on with the work

Of revealing to the rest of the world

What life’s really all about.

Liberation of the body, mind and soul

Is what many have come here to seek

Remember THAT and life will present its own peaks.

The men who were shiny and buff

Seem to act like they’ve just had enough

Seems they heading to oblivion one way or another

AIDS didn’t get us but the death wish, the shame

That all gay men carry, for which I guess we have straight men to blame,

Hasn’t left us, it’s manifesting still

In our behaviours, in our addictions, in how many are ill

Perhaps AIDS is still around, but now functioning

On emotional, mental  and spiritual planes.

The men who were shiny and buff

And everyone who’s caught in the pain

NEED LOVE and the chance to discover

Their inner warrior, child and lover

In order to release the binding and recover.

There’s a consciousness r-evolution happening on planet earth.

Gay men are amongst those who are here to be its midwives

But the HIGH GAY MEN HIGHWAYMEN

Raiding the lost ark of consciousness

Unaware they are, and have always been

The witches, the warlocks, the shamans, the fools

Who use sex, herbs and love as our tools

To enchant the world and heal the sick

To open the gates and conduct the magick

the HIGH GAY MEN HIGHWAYMEN

are missing the trick.
