YOU

image

How will I
Be able to stand
Before this world
In denial
Of the very emotion
Rushing
Through me?

You.

When you take me
By the hand
And stoop to plant
Healing kisses
On my sore
Knuckles.

You.

I lay settled in
An empty tub
Enveloped with the warmth
That is your love
And soon
The tub overflows
With my tears
Shaken loose
By the violence of
The joy in
My laughter.

Tell me,
How
Can I
Not love you?!

You.

When you move
Me with the force
Of your overpowering
Smile
And drive me
With a sternness
Backboned with mercy
On my feebleness
Under the weight
Of the slightest
Slip.

You.

When you run to me;
Almost knocking me over
Squeeze me tight.
Lift me up and twirl –
The victory, both yours
And mine,
Binds us in that
Sweet embrace
And I shudder
At the depth
Of your pardon
…The expanse
Of your grace.

How can I
Erase
This impress
On my heart
When you call me
Child
Call this brokenness
Perfect
Touch me
All of me
And possess it?

I am yours.

You.

Immutable
Infallible
All and all in all

It will be
Impossible
The height of lies
Treachery
Ha,
Suicide!
To deny you

You…

  1. Lovely write Ms. I guess only in true love will I find “you “. My favorite line is “How will I
    Be able to stand
    Before this world
    In denial
    Of the very emotion
    Rushing
    Through me?

    You.” I love this piece šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š
