Dialysis

You walk in and look around; you see no warmth, nor hope for tomorrow, there is no laughter in that room. All eyes are vacant; little hope shines through…

She has flare in her eyes
and smiles like an angel.
Muse her hows and whys
her love is so faithful.

She contrives my future
and makes arrangements.
She gives me away
to transcend Her ailments.

She has flare in her eyes
yet misfortune o’re her head.
Her love for me is not disguised.
“I’m only doing this for you.” She said.

“I’m only doing this for you,
I don’t want this pain.
I’m only doing this for you,
what else have I to gain?”

Full Price


When alone and tied in knots
In the mirror confront my failings
And trouble God with all my thoughts
And wonder if he hears my wailings

Look at me, redeem my weakness
Hear me, and commute my greed
Then I find that His completeness
He paid in full, full price indeed

Taboo

sun-heart-autumn-leaf-39379
For years we’ve said “I love you”
-as casual parting goodbyes.
And now we confront how taboo
-it’s become and all that it implies.

Must we kill this love and let it die
-to keep our friendship true?
As for me how much more will I
-shirk our mores to shout “I love you!”
