A Heart Sliced

Piece by piece my heart was sliced

Lies told, believed and shared with spice

Slowly bleeding, scab is formed

Scar and callous with every scorn

 

Life and love-blood still pulse through

How to penetrate a heart subdued?

Each time a slice is cut away

Seeping blood, means strength will wane

 

The sudden pain, then numbing shock

Each shaving, sliver that you took

Has wearied body, heart and soul

Though still I am, I don’t feel whole

A Heart Bludgeoned

Pounding, beating, striking hard

Relentless force, crushing, jarred

Unending, constant, take no breath

Wearing down, to point of death

 

My bludgeoned heart, still pulsating

Throbbing pulp, strength is waning

Your threats overt and sometime veiled

Lies and slander will not prevail

 

This heart of mine has loved on love

You kept at bay, by your pounding club

Diminishing, love does not

Heart’s black and blue, though, hide a lot

One alOne

To long to be with one you love

Should not presume one’s idolised

For when a love is placed there upon

The love’s determined, unionise

 

When one, then separation’s parting

Brings pain and strain and foreignness

Those joined and intertwined thereafter

Find torn apart, is meaningless

 

And yet, there’s only one I’m pleasing

One whose path I choose, my own

If another one will not choose with me

I’ll walk pain and strain, apart, alone

The P Words

Set me free for love’s abandon

No longer bound to false affection

Have I not known the truth of love

Was all my story a lie thereof?

 

Set me free from false perception

Look at all through Love’s perfection

Was the beginning true and good,

But distorted by deception’s food?

 

It may be I will never know

The truth of all that we did sow

Or light may dawn some future day

Revealer of some or all our sway

 

The promise is for future goodness

Amazed at all that Love’s accomplished

Rejoice in peace and treasures growing

Announced, established throughout the trying

 

Persistent, patient, persevere

The triple ‘P’ I must revere

Encompassed in that lonely word

Endure, though seemingly absurd

Water, Land, Footprints, Hands

Take my hand, child                         Matthew 14:22-34

Let Me lift you

Up to where, I

Want to take you

Path to follow                                  Joshua 3:3-4,8,13,15-17

Step out strong, and

See My footprints

In them stand

I will calm the                                 Mark 4:36-5:1

Storms around you

Take you safely

Over too

Staying here will                            Mark 4:40, 5:1

Not be healthy

The other side’s

Security

Look to Me and                              Hebrews 4:15-16

Trust My goodness

‘Tis you I favour;

Lovingkindness

Who I Am

Who am I now, who will I be, who was it that I once was?
Created, refined, renewed, somehow changed.
A remarkable journey, unseen.

Backward glance, mindful now, vision forward.
Partial past-sense, present life-blood, future veiled.
Confusion, understanding, mysterious.

I was different, I’m the same, I will be…
