eyes fixed on you…

pricked and pierced
prodded and pulled
pushed and preyed
puddles of pain
the ruins remain.

words that cost
stuck like full-
juiced lemons open
upon tender wounds
unhealed.
unseen.
but I see them.

how can i forgive
that which renders
me worthless
with a single blow
of one called friend?

eyes fixed on you…
only One who knows
this rarest of
ways.

pricked and pierced
prodded and pulled
pushed and preyed
puddles of pain
perfection pummeled
lifeless remains.

hurts of millions
upon billions
as waterfalls
of sour wine
ooze in infinite
sting, and you…

absorb it all
in holy love
that defines all
redemptive and
true and rises
in glory.

eyes fixed on you…
the only
way to walk
in what is
deeper than
the hardening
pain.

step by step
I stumbling
shuffle and
baby-skinned
heart receive.

eyes fixed on you…
most fragile
yet strong
softened
resilience
I see.
eyes fixed on you…
