kamikaze


tread lightly
for you walk on hallowed ground.

the valley of death is green today.
but i was born with the blood of a kamikaze.
i will crash my plane into this Earth
to satisfy the ache within me.

i walked with you beside the lake
your face brought back the pain.
of hidden things that i'd let die.
of things i'd long since slain.

where is your God?
they asked me.
where is the King you love?

but the crickets washed their words away
in fire from above.

the valley of death is green today.
and i love you more than ever.
we'll walk in peace down by this road
and learn the ways together.

I AM YOUR GOD
i hear the shout.
YOU ARE THE ONE I LOVE.

and i laugh because i am consumed
in fire from above.


tread lightly
for you walk on hallowed ground.


walked with cally until our breath came short. what a sunset. shout-out to the birds that gave a marvelous concert. i burst a heart just listening to you.

  1. You and your poetry and how you express your relationship with God. Luck, I try writing poetry (like I did on my blog recently) and it didn't work out great :'( Teach me your ways, Grand Master Grasshopper. *bows*

    xoxo Morning

    P.S. Cally's hair blowing in the wind (I'm pretty sure that's her) = choral angel "ahhhhhh"s.
