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

Even in sad poems, I can still see growth. A lot of it. Through all of everything, you're still becoming more and more beautiful and strong in everything you do! I love you. Your example has really helped me.

a wise person once said to me the verse "yes though i walk though the valley of the shaddow of death" does not tell where you will be at the end of the SHADOW of death. its only the shadow of death dearest. only the shadow you won't die. the reason it doesnt say where you will be is because that is for you to write. the bible is a fill in the blank sometimes. we have to put in names and sometings like that. gow wants us to write our own stories. the bible is a letter to US!! so put your story in the bible.... and trust god!
