JUST SAY NO

IN THE DARKEST CORNERS OF MY SPIRIT I CRY OUT

“GOD”!?!

HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME OR TIRED OF TELLING ME NO

I KNOW I ASK FOR THOSE WHO YOU PROTECT ME FROM

YOU TAKE THEM FROM ME AND STILL I LACE UP AND RUN

RIGHT INTO THE PATH OF THE SEMI RIPPING A NEW PATH

TWO MINUS ONE IS STILL ONE NO MATTER THE MATH

I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN OR HOW TO END

I HURT. I AM. I FEAR I MAY BE JUST A TAD EXCITED AGAIN

IT CAN’T BE COINCIDENCE THAT I’M ALWAYS THE ONE ON 10

I FEAR THE ALONE. IT IS THE NEVER ENDING QUIET I DREAD

SO AGAIN I CHASE LOVE WITH THE VIGOR OF A LION NOT FED

HAS THE SUN SET ON MY HEART NEVER TO SHOW ITSELF AGAIN

AM I NO LONGER IN THE RACE FOR THE ONE WHO COMPLETES ME?

I ASK THE QUESTION YET I REMEMBER THE LESSON OF COMPLETENESS

MY OWN TO STRIVE FOR WITH THE HAND OF GOD TO LET MY MIND REST

BUT AGAIN I FEEL MY SPIRIT YEARNING FOR THE PROVIDER TO PROTECT

IS HE ONLY IN FANCIFUL NOVELS OF HONOR, LOVE, LOYALTY, AND RESPECT?

FATHER FREE ME!

STRENGTHEN ME!

FORTIFY ME!

SAY NO TO ME!

YOUR IMPATIENT CHILD

IN THIS PLACE

THE SOFTEST OF LIPS MAKE THE SWEETEST MUSIC

DELICATELY DRUMMED UPON MY SKIN AS

PLEASURE NOTES STRING TOGETHER OUR MELODY

INSIDE YOUR INTOXICATING ESSENCE

DRUNKENLY EXPOSED I STAND BEFORE YOU

THERE ARE NO TRUER FEELINGS SHARED

WITH OUR VULNERABILITY EMBRACED

CHASING LOVE’S POWER STILL

LOOKING TO ITS IRIDESCENT LIGHT

FIGHTING TO FILL THE HOLE OF HEARTBREAK

RIGHT NOW

IN THIS TIME

AND IN THIS PLACE

OUR PAST SLIPS FROM THE NOOSE OF YESTERDAY

THE FRUITS OF FOREVER ON YOUR FINGERS

LEAVES TRACES ON MY SWOLLEN LIPS

I KNOW WHAT I EAT AND WHO FEEDS ME


WITH YOU I AM FULL
