This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honer you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me. Continue if you dare ;)

Numb

Surrounded by color,
Blind.
Vibranceness overwhelming,
Blind.

Music floating through life,
Deaf.
Tapping, whistling, strumming,
Deaf.

Soft velvet to the finger tips,
Nothing.
Puppy slobber on the face,
Nothing.

Fresh apple pie and rain,
Scentless.
Sweet roses and sexy cologne,
Scentless.

Mac and cheese,
Tasteless.
Mint chocolate chip ice cream,
Tasteless.

Laughter and smiles,
Numb.
Hugs and tears,
Numb.

Sarah, I would just like to encourage you with this verse, and remind you of God's promises. And let me assure you, that He is there, no matter what. And He will NOT Leave you alone. And this: Every season must end. So if you are in a time of winter, do not despair of spring coming.

Isaiah 29:18 and Jeremiah 29:11-13

I love you, and I'm praying for you. Please, look up these verses; The second one in particular saved my life, and carried me through some of the darkest days in my life. I pray that they may do the same for you.

In this poem, it displays the feeling well...that there is no feeling. That first of all comes out very clear. I'm a visual person, and by the end I had a vivid image of someone, no one in particualr, just a figment of imagination. This person...just there. Only in existence, but since they can't feel have no reason to be. So they just stare into the distance, not taking in any beauty, any life by any of their gifted senses. Things that many people in general pose as symbols for happiness, such as balloons, small children, even a smile, go unnoticed. And the person can't even shed a tear for missing out. I don't know why I thought of this, but I did. I again encourage you to keep up with whatever you find pleasure in. Just by your poems I've seen that you've grown already! I love you!! ♥
