The ache is more than I can bear,
I’m hollow, the echo is clear,
Tilt my ear but still I don’t hear,
How did I get here?
Lost in self thoughts, I’ve wandered,
It was meant to be a stroll not a stray,
With every step the power ebbed,
The glow on my skin went with your glory,
My pupil now a shade of grey,

I miss you much,
Our spot by the gate,
Your tender nudge,
The aroma of your proximity,
The welling in my chest when you visit,
The perk on my face at the mention of your name,
The afterglow of your presence,
The peace you bring at your reaching,
Our intimacy,

I want back,
I want more,
Need you to move in,
Out with me, in with you,
Need to exude your spirit,
Sate me,
Consume me,
Wrap me in silk and suppleness of you,
The throne room of my heart awaits you.
Your boy earnestly waits

that was wonderfully written. I have been in that place before, and I can assure you, that if you seek HIm with a whole heart, He will hear your cry and make you whole again

How often "It was meant to be a stroll not a stray"; it is good the God keeps His eye on us even when we forget Him.

Lovely poem. Am quite familiar with its content, . . . Its always gud to know that even when we stray he's ever there to draw us back to him. . .

the day squeezes me to the wall
buses buzzing hooting horn hunt my ears
run round anticlockwise
trying to unclock the clock
uncertain what i missed or misplaced
or what it i seek
then i get tired, stop dead!
and look around
strolling streets have turn to straying deserts
somewhere nowhere in the wilderness!
when and how? no answers
i thirst in pain
where is water? ha!
suddenly i know what is missing
or been missing
where are you Lord
when did you leave
why did i leave you
Holy Spirit find me
i have strayed so far and lost you
i miss you so much

the most hard part about missing God is how long it takes to notice it! I guess i have too many other loves in my life....mercy!

By night on my bed I was looking for him who is the love of my soul: I was looking for him, but I did not see him. I will get up now and go about the town, in the streets and in the wide ways I will go after him who is the love of my soul: I went after him, but I did not see him.
(Son 3:1-2)
