Spoken Desire – A Poem

In my quest to love and live,
Lord, lead me all the way.
In my quest to give and forgive,
for these dear Lord, I pray:

Give me the kind of affection
that no pain can conceal.
Rid me of the kind of rejection
that love can not heal.

Give me the kind of tolerance
that offence can repeal.
Take away the kind of substance
that love cannot seal.

Give me the kind of perception
that makes love more real.
Discard the kind of deception
that makes trust a big deal.

Give me the kind of memory
that no storm can steal.
Take away the kind of injury
that love can not heal.

Give me the kind of delight
that distance cannot steal.
Take away the kind of light
that clouds cannot conceal.

In my quest to love out loud,
Lord, hear my unspoken desire.
Clear away the cloaking cloud
and spark within me a fire.

  1. Great poets, the true and genuine ones are passionate about all the angles, corners and curves just the very act of making a good poem. We then experience all of his emotions between the lines.
    It was love at first sight when i laid my eyes upon your poetry. It brought a song to my heart and gave me a wonderful prayer to go into, to glance upon as i pray.

      1. “Discard the kind of deception

        This just hit home. It led my thoughts to issues on insecurities .. Insecurities that yes, make trust a big deal. I wish it would all be perfect in an instant
