Whispers of a poet's heart

What I enjoy most about love

When it overtakes you like a storm

Is its grit- that gets caught

In the center of your throat

As your heart goes in full panic

Your mind rushes wild

And blood pools far below

Holding you in your stance

As if it’s your soul’s magnet

Just before and after

Telling someone- those

Most oath, gut wrenching words:

“I love you” often with a grin

Sometimes with tears- still

Refusing to flee, being supportive

To your vocal courage and fear

As ghostly rejection hovers- foggishly

The way an enabler does an addict

While wanting them to be cured

However- it only holds true

So long as love too intends to

Be love, unrefined- colored

But the grit, like scars never leave…ever

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 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 hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
