Come Home! 

You have been despised and rejected, tossed to and fro by lies so perfect they sound like the truth. You have been told that no one has ever made it out alive, That this maze of lies will soon be your grave, and hell would be your eternal home. You cannot imagine a better place…

True love waits

In my darkest moments When I was knee-deep in sin Oblivious to my fallen state Your love chased me Even when my lips rejected you You just chased me some more  You despised the shame of unrequited love  And waited…  You knew the scales would fall You knew the pain of regret would almost consume…

Shame stripped us and we lay bare Naked, shivering in the cold Until Love found us, Cut our hearts open and ripped out every trace of fear Every wound received His touch Our bodies received new life Our eyes are glazed over with love Our hearts are full of joy His glory shines upon our faces…

The Wait

It’s been a long time, Lover Since my pen met paper to sing Your praises Apologies… But I’ve been too busy waiting, For You. I’ve been waiting for ages To see Your word become flesh You said the doors were open to me Yet it seems I’m stuck just at the entrance, Unable to step…

BRIDGE TO HEAVEN

At the garden of gethsemane, It became real to me, Three times, I asked that the cup be taken away Yet that his will be done I tasted and felt the darkness encircling me And their sins becoming one with me Yet I looked beyond and saw the glory ahead Darkness truly had no clue…

The Long Road Home

It’s dark here. The curtains are masks Protecting me from the mess in this place The bed smells of sex and cheap wine The floor is strewn with dirty clothes Last night’s meal found solace on the bathroom floor A bible, long forgotten lay in the corner Ghosts of memories past filter through Cracks in…

Of Birthdays and Reflections

A few weeks to my 21st birthday. I met my Lord. It wasn’t until months later that I began to understand what this new life meant. Then words broke through the dam of self righteousness and flowed like a river. The beginning of my pen and paper romance. For many months after that I still…
