Here I am again,God–after a long
night where I fell
into sin, thinking
of Adam & Eve
naked in Eden.
How where they
together with your footsteps
their heartbeat inside? I cry,
dumbfounded as to how I want
such a thing when I chase death–
dreaming a man will hold closest
my heart, my hand, kiss me at
dawning light. Who will give me
milk and honey by the breath of
the Word encased within his chest,
In the beginning was the Word (love)
& the Word became flesh, the visible
God, He who loved best, sacrificing
death, to which I do not compare.
God, I dream of a man who will
read read me Your Word of unfailing
love–fearing the apple of his throat
may betray my flesh.
** I’m reading this book and it’s making me look at myself. I’m not sure I like it..I also apparently process through poetry. Also, this book has made me tear and ache and wow.
There’s going to be a review here sometime this month.
