Watch This

God, I see You’ve been meddling in this from the start
Your majestic way

We two called upon You
We petitioned for Your peace
You answered with our miracle, praise!

Then how did his eyes stray?
Must he stroll away?

I still stand before You and my brother here
To confess the universe is wildly unpredictable, but this:

You granted love’s grace to us; and,
I do trust in You

None Mercy

God, there was such pain

Constant

Bombardment

The love of a lifetime toppling as the city wall

A series of shofar blasts heralding not justice and courage, but cruelty those years

These years, I tilt my head hoping to drain the ringing and echoing from these ears

All an image or impression away — the mountains, the oceans, and desert sands steal me back

Or a wedding song

A life that escapes me, a pain impossible to escape

Love Mercy

Aware
This hurts you,
I have decided to speak, nonetheless
‘tho I don’t use words such as “nonetheless”
Nonetheless, I will speak
I love you
Your vast imagination
Your eyes that refuse hopelessness
Your damn, smart ways
Your walk -I hear the music too
Something epic
You are

Some lifetime, somewhere
Someone was
Something in me now, is
Chasing
Pray for me
I am tired 
But I won’t sleep
I’m a fighter 
But I choose love 
You understand me?
Tell me you understand
I don’t love you 

Veiled

To tip-toe eternal I am able
Though are you not bored with this gentle dance
Have you not tired of the dusty curtain calls
Or watched enough of me in the wings
Can I not come crashing through
And at your feet petition truth
I recall tenderness I could not have imagined
I pray and I trust you are warm with mercy
Where have I spent these years
Will the rest be so cold
