out where i am alone 

your words wake 

up my mind, slumbering

away the gray–delight

yourself in the Lord &

he will give you the desires

of your heart. i yearn this 

fire not die today. let me

forget anger i’ve harbored

toward your slowness, 

bringing repentance before

your throne. i’m sorry i’m 

content keeping ache for

goodbyes i didn’t ask. i’m

sorry i’m mad watching his

loneliness drive him wilderness

bound & hoping you speak 

tenderly, as with me. i’m sorry 

i want hurry over your compassion

dripping rain water in my tensed

bone–for you keep me wrapped

up in joy when i expect the fall
