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 honor you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me.

Senselssly Alone

As the tears fill my eyes,
Blurring what I thought I saw.
Looking around to see what is near,
But I see nothing.
Utterly Alone

Reaching for a hand,
Touching only misery.
Groping in the dark,
But I can't feel a thing.
Completely Alone

Listening for comforting footsteps,
Hearing only my own breathing.
Stretching to detect any sign of life,
Everything but silence is dead.
Disappointingly Alone

A whiff of roses floats past,
Only to be taking away in the same moment.
Breathing deep searching for a treat,
Only garbage is found.
Disgustingly Alone

A hint of honey,
To be replaced by onions.
Licking lips to find joy,
Just to be burned once again.
Hopelessly Alone



It's great to finally meet cool people and write crazy Dr. Susse poems in five min!

By Sarah (me) and Josh Peterson

Crystals are clear,
in all shapes and sizes,
their beauty unique
amazes our eyeses!

They can do many things,
they can be used as prizes.
They make people think
and grow even more wises.


Hiding in the dark,
With light all around.
People smiling, laughing, talking,
I can't cope with it now.

Beating myself up,
Tormenting voices in my head.
Pain Stuck,
Unable to move.

So sorry for all I have done,
Regretting for the first time.
Regret not for me,
For you.

I can live with anything,
As long as you're okay.
I'll live with it,
If even just barly.

I've been dying for a long time,
Now it is finished.
No way left to cope with pain,
At least none with logic.

A simple cut,
Maybe a drink.
A simple gag,
Maybe just a gun.

To make it all go away,
So I can simply just be.
I have nothing left,
Nothing to push foward with.

God, I have sacrficed all for you!
Don't you see that?
I try to see the blessings,
But do you see the pain?

God! I need you,
To hold me.
Take my pain,
All of it I give to you.

So I can live my life,
I give it to you.
To keep and hold,
To put together when broken.
