I write in verse to sooth my soul
Because all I see is my heart running away from me.
I can speak of my desires and dreams but still have brokenness
Is this is a life for your beloved?
Am I ‘one you love?
When I cannot see you.
When I do not feel you.
When I do not hear you.
Still I seek you.
I tell myself you will come
I know you will return.
Over and over again
I look to you.
I want my breath to only breathe before you.
I have wronged you.
I have wronged my brothers and sisters.
I am still weak.
I wish I could go back and love stronger,
Hug longer, smile brighter, and cry deeper.
I ask you over and over again
Fill me with you.
I ask you to see me for who I am.
Take me with my nothingness.
Fill me once again on this new day.
I only want to be more like you.
