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.

Forest Princess

She wanders,
A princess.
In the dark she shudders,
Her beauty priceless.

Her gown flowing,
Marking her for royalty.
Hair softly blowing,
A vision of unreality.

Heading to a secret place,
Known only to him.
The sun as lace,
Light beginning to dim.

Tucked safe away,
She waits.
Watching the fading day,
She waits.

Startled by a sound,
She turns.
Beautiful eyes dancing around,
Perfect body burns.

Ready to give everything,
Body, soul, and mind.
Dreaming of anything,
Heart still innocent and kind.

Oh where is he?
Will he ever come?
Where could he be?
To her could he shun?

Light fades from the sky,
What should would give for it to hold on.
A crystal tear sliding from her eye,
Then the sun is gone.

She peers from the trees,
Hiding her existence.
Tears blurring what she sees,
Resisting her resistance.

He holds the keys,
To her secret heart.
The only one that really sees,
Nothing can keep the two apart.

Soft shoulders stoop,
Hope disappearing with the sun.
Head begins spinning in a loop,
Mind, body, and soul telling her it's done.

Sapphire eyes glitter with tears,
Lying herself down on the cool grass.
Thinking back through the memories of the years,
Closing eyes and surrendering all hope alas.

Awaken from a slumber with no dreams,
She turns ready to die.
He is there holding out his hand to her it seems,
Without thought she embraces him with a sigh.
