A Reblog of, “The Eddies”–House of Heart

He smiled and said he was lonely,

let’s  go for a ride down by the dunes.

Retracting the top of his new convertible

we sped along freeways and dark back roads

while the radio blared Louie Louie.

I remember the sea wall and  drinking straight

from the bottle until the swallow no longer burned.

The moon and the stars sunk down behind his shoulder

and my stifled cries  drowned in the Sea.

While my father slept I scrubbed  my bruises

watched  pools of red eddy at the drain.

You think I’m no body

but I’m not just somebody whose all alone.


Dedicated to all victims who fail to report sexual assault

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
