Obsession

You overtake me without my permission.
You violate me and I take offense to you.
You have hijacked my mind one too many times.
I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!

You have raped my soul and spirit
You leave me on the floor in my pool of tears
Pants down for the whole world to see
Leaving me as you lie in wait to take me again

We are now at war.
I will outsmart you
I will not let you steal from me
Any longer!

To Live in the Moment With My Angel

I want to dream with my angel,
But dreams often spoil.
They lead to expectation,
And soon disappoint.

If I live in the past with my angel,
She gets the cup of angst.
That is served from the hurts of my days,
My angel does not deserve that.

I love this moment with my angel,
It is here I enjoy her most.
Her smile, her tears and her embrace,
To live in the moment with her.

My angel deserves only the best,
So I walk with her side by side.
Hand in hand we walk focused.
Experiencing life together,
My angel and I.

Your Hands

I looked down and I saw
The strength and the beauty
Like two innocent mourning doves
Refined by the years

They captured my heart
Those two beautiful palms
Side by side as they labor together
To be the work of art
I long to hold, kiss and draw near to me

The softness of your skin
I want to reach out and touch
And hold your hand next to mine
As together we walk though time
Forever we stand, hand in hand

The Pain and the Blame

Every time there is pain in my life
I am so willing to place the blame on You
I know the things which happen
Are the product of choices we make

Things we do to ourselves
Things we do to others
Things others do to us

But I am first to admit when they happen
I turn it around and blame You
I am wise enough to know it’s not Your fault
Yet the pain creates the blame

Why didn’t You protect me
Why didn’t You save me
Why did You let this happen to me
Why won’t You take this suffering away

But You did take the pain and released it
You did take my trial and saved me
Although it happened, You walked by my side
You are there to comfort me`
As long as I don’t let the pain create the blame
Because then I run

Heart on My Sleeve?

I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because when I do I leave open for all to see
I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because it becomes like a bullseye on a tree.

I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because it attracts vultures and thieves.
I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because wounded I will forever be.

I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because it blinds the way I see.
I should not wear my heart on my sleeve
Because it is too easy to take advantage of me.

I used to be proud that you knew me
I was the same no matter where we walked
I used to be proud that what you see is what you get
No punches, no backhands, no hidden agendas

I should no longer wear my heart on my sleeve
Because you have hurt me so badly
I should no longer wear my heart on my sleeve
Because it is too easy for you to see me

The Father says,
“You must wear your heart on your sleeve
Because that is how I use you
for people to see me.”

Unfortunately I can’t not no longer wear my heart on my sleeve
Because I feel the liar I would be
No longer would I be me
It’s impossible I can’t not no longer wear my heart on my sleeve

Monumental Brokenness

Sometimes I fear I will be lost in my own brokenness,
my own hopelessness, my despair;
But then I cry out and You are there, when I thought no one cared.
You hold me, You lift me up, You make me rise above.
I am caught up and swept away.
It is then I am able to make a monument to You!
It is there I have found myself complete.

We Danced

The door opened to my heart
When I thought love had no choice
It had left us,
like sand slipping through our hands

Yet you found your way in
As we loosened the chains
The new song begins
So we dance, hearts embracing one another

We danced as the feelings began
You give, I give- we rest in the joy
We danced as the fears of the past
struck us cold and left us frozen and alone

We danced in the silence and in the laughter
We danced because we took a chance
Or because we took a chance we danced

We danced the words into the moonlight
As we whispered sweet blessings from our heart
Goodnight my friend, restful peace as you sleep
Good things await us in the new day dawning
When in that time we get to dance once again
