Blood Rose


House of Heart

The night is wet

drops of rain glisten

on the slick sidewalks.

In my hurry I dodge

the dark puddles that

Glisten in the misty glow

of amber street lamps

There is a trace of rosy

blood where I have bitten

my lip but my eyes brim

with life and nonsensical love

When we meet we smile

and kiss silvery lashes

The taste of blood rose on

shivering lips

For the moment we forget

You want too much and

I will take whatever you give.

” I love you, I love you,

Like a fool, like a soldier

Like a movie star

I love you, I love you

Like a wolf, a king,

Like a man that I am not.

I love you like that”

*English lyrics to” je t’aime ” written by Serge Gainsbourg

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?.
