I think I've found
Your match for me,
But the space between us

I long with my whole heart
To have him here.
Weeks as I'm waiting
Feel like years.
How desperately I need him
Here by my side.
Bring him an inch closer
For each tear I've cried.
I cannot wait much longer.
I fear I'll lose my mind.
If we can come together sooner,
Help us the way to find.
Hold me please, Lord Jesus,
While I'm waiting to be held
By the special one You made
To make me feel like I've never felt.

To the bruises and scars from where he bled
From the humiliation he suffered on a hill
To the Pharisees who were out to kill
From his injured joints which did ache
To his bones which did not break
From the words he spoke giving up his spirit
To the earthquake that followed and men feared it

You have read how those that cursed Israel have fallen to the ground.
But have you heard of those who are blessed?
Come America, how mighty you are for supporting the Jews.
You are blessed among all nations, none are stronger than you.
See how Persia ruled the Mid East, they had an empire from Cairo to Tehran.
They were mighty in the Middle-East, none could stop them. But cursing the Jews? Unacceptable!
Take a look at South Africa, the now fallen state. Yes, they had agendas that didn't make sense.
But for supporting the Jews, their might challenged the continent.
Look around you, people of the world and tell me; does God bless them that bless his people?
HIDDEN PROMISESWHEN the storm clouds gather, into our lives they roll;More Like This
WHEN trials rain down and hide the sun, upon us take their toll;
HIDDEN in the trial is a truth to be revealed:
IT'S whispered to our hearts, "GOD'S PROMISES are real.
GOD'S PROMISES are real and His truth He will reveal
That all things work together for the good.
And nothing separates us from the love of Jesus,
And access through the blood of Christ.
ABOVE the cloud, the sun combines with raindrops to reveal
A RAINBOW waiting to remind, "GOD'S PROMISES are real."
EACH drop of rain from darkness catching sunlight from above
HAS in it a promise, expression of GOD'S Love.

why must you follow me
Your pools of murky water
glisten in the shadows
Don't run away from me
Follow me until the sun don't shine any longer
hold me, until the moon is high in the sky
Why must you have brown eyes?
You stare right through me with those
damn brown eyes
I was lonely
you were lonely
I was happy
you were sad
We made love
and then you kissed me
love is a powerful word but with those brown eyes i believed you
A baby grew; inside my womb
you weren't there
I wasn't ready to be alone again
So i trapped you
We shared that bottle of gin
I watched as your brown eyes faded into black
Now you don't have brown eyes
Just blood shot murky black
I took that gin and then i fell; into your arms
those brown eyes peaceful
We fell into each other
stole from one another
But baby i wish your brown eyes were blue
Winter KissOnce was a boyMore Like This
his gaze icy and blank,
who sat atop a stool
until his head went feint
He sat on his stool
covered in snow
until the angels came home
to welcome the boy
His lips were pale
and his heart glassy
no longer full of warmth
Until the day that that angel would come
in the wintry snow until the sun
Because even though his heart was dead
his eyes still shone winters dread
That boy went limp as the sun shone true
No angel seeking but no devil too
Until morn did the angel come
his lips icy under the morning sun
He lay atop a kiss upon the good boys head
welcoming him to heaven, no longer waiting
A winters kiss
did the angel lay
atop the head
of the dead boys

In Her Eyes...More Like This
Her face shines like the Sun
At the slightest sound of his voice.
Her smile lengthens
When his name appears, blinking, on her phone.
Her eyes twinkle,
Sparkling like the stars above as she thinks of him.
Her blush darkens after he hugs her
Until she looks like a tomato.
Her whole body melts
When his steady, confident gaze meets hers.
Her face reddens
When her teasing friends joke with her about him.
Every glance at him warms up her heart.
His happiness is more important than anything else in the world.
That rare, truly genuine smile of his is worth a thousand and one sunsets.

"Everybody's got a talent"
That's what my papa used to say
"Everybody is unique
In his or her own special way."
"But Papa," I said
"Are you sure about that?
What about me?
What am I good at?"
"Well," he replied
Leaning against the wall
"You can sing, you can draw
You can write, that's best of all."
But Papa is a liar
I can't do all that stuff
When I sing, I'm off key
When I draw, I screw up
When I write? I don't know
It's not exactly talent
I guess I'm pretty good
But I wouldn't say I have it
Everyone's got talent
Everyone but me

I tried loving someone else but it felt like it wasn't right.
My mind forgot about him but a piece of myself and my heart wasn't able to move on.
I thought it was a merely obsession but it wasn't!
What should I do? Tell me!

Girls were everywhere
and doing their hair.
Are their first priority
Now I know
This won't end shortly
When people ask
If I'm really a girl
I just shake my head,
and say "I'm a fangirl"
The spotlight's on me
All this pressure is burning
I stop breathing
To make sure the world is still turning
I fail once
I fail twice, I fail again
As they scream at me
I wonder when it will end
I'll never understand
The world of the girls
But I know I'll fit in
In the world of the fangirls.

The Bible tells us to love others, right?
"Love one another, as I have loved you"- John 13:34
So, here's the thing.
I don't love others. For the most part, I hate people. I believe humanity is evil. I believe human nature is corrupt, and fundamentally characterized by self-interest.
I do not trust anyone, not even "friends" to be honest (and I'm not sure whether I even consider anyone my friend- that's how far gone I am in misanthropic distrust). People have let me down a lot. Humanity is not worthy of my trust. Humanity is, basically, evil.
