Dear God

Promise in the next life

You will have more mercy on my heart…

You will not let it be so fragile

You will not let it enjoy so many facets of love

(For this only encourages it so)

You will let it know how one can love

my heart back

Truly, fully, unabashedly

As it does now…

That you must let me have at last

In my next life…

You will not let it give and give and give

Only to falter, implore and yearn

And yet

Somehow wish to seek once more…

Why does my heart hold out so much hope?

Why does it want what it may only get

in the next life?


A much appreciated response from asoulwalker, thought it should be read and not hidden in the comments.

A response by asoulwalker:

Dear God,
You know my hope is weak
You know my heart is feeble
Why do you give me so much freedom?
You know the world is cruel,
And my heart wants to love…
Please let it be heard.

So much more

It’s not enough

Your tender kisses

Your tight tight hugs

It’s not enough

As I only exist

When I’m right in front of you

Your pleasantness imbues only the time presently shared

Yet the moment we are apart

No longer do i matter

No longer am i wanted

We don’t need each other

That we both know

But maybe it’s not enough

Or maybe I realize… I want so much more….
