Deserted Heart

slow growing solo like a saguaro in the desert’s heart

i don’t need much

God, water, sunlight

everything and everyone else, a deeply appreciated plus but not necessarily a must

…The spirit of God was hovering over the waters – i read that verse again and again – Genesis 1:2 – and sit by the sea every time i am blessed with the chance

in the beginning i thought i knew but i didn’t

know

anything

the hopeless romantic within me died on a lightless day last November – 2 to the heart

Held her in my arms as she took her last breathe

It was inevitable though

Made an idol out of romance and watched it fall – shattered my heart in the process

Broken hearted and repentant

i wear black and dark shades mourning the loss of this part of me – parts of me –

God talks me through and walks me through this grief

Reminding me of who He is as i read his word

The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. – Psalms 34:18

i feel his closeness no matter how the day finds me or where it takes me

i wait on my new heart -another one of his promises -with endless blooming belief

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a new heart of flesh –Ezekiel 36:26

slow growing solo like a saguaro in the desert’s heart

i don’t need much

God, water, sunlight,

and a new heart

Author’s Note: God bless the shooter.
