Two Words That Describe How I Feel

(a poem)

Cold.

Warmth is a woman
lying by your side
yet you shiver
whenever her skin
finds yours

This is what you can’t explain:
You stand before God
and get blinded
by the light
You can feel his warmth
yet your heart remains
cold. withdrawn.

Love is a woman
staring into your eyes
while her tongue
searches your mouth
only to find
broken pieces of glass

Hurt.

You were whole
before God touched
your thigh bone

This is what grieves you:
You were once blind
now you are limping
and you wonder what is
amazing about a grace
that takes your
breath away

But hope is a man
that wrestles everything
even divinity
and escapes with his life

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
