Spoken Word

I love you

So knocking on your heart’s door has become my new occupation

But this situation, we have found ourselves in is a little conflicting

It’s confusing, how you can love someone so much and not be loved back

Even when the stokes hit my back, my love for you kept me going

The radiant glowing of my glory was not sufficient to keep me from you

I will cross the heavens to get to you, descend into the deepest depth of hell for you

This is not just for poetry

I mean this literally

Exhibiting symptoms of muscular dystrophy

Frequent falls, getting up with difficulty

In all this, you were not there to hold me up

You watched me drown in the pain of your wrongs

My disfigurement was your aggrandizement

Whiles you were still complaining about sunburns

I the Son, had burnt your blemish

Diminishing your fetish tendencies

Jealously guarding my love for you

This is my plea

Flee from the noise of sin and let me in

Stop hiding behind fear

Weigh my sacrifice and you realize

Your sin outweighs my love

Come to me all ye who a weary

And I will give you rest

From the pest, that beset your steps

The reason you’ve failed my test

So now just thirst

For rest, and trust in my words

I’m yours forever

I’m Christ the one who has loved you

Who still loves you

And will forever love you.
