I was Davey Jones Locker destined.
There I was drowning in my sorrows.
Choking on my pride.
I was a blind man walking on the cliffs edge.

There you were swimming in the sorrows that were drowning me.
I found you where you first loved me.
I cried the prayer that surrendered my soul.
Your breadth is the voice of the redeemed.
I will forever remember the love that I saw in your eyes when I awoke from the nightmare I was writing.
Your closer than I think you are.
You promised that you are with me always, even till the end of the age.

I know that you are for me.
Like the sunrise on the darkest of nights, my hope in you is victory enough.
Hallelujah for the good things coming that I cannot see yet.
This current suffering is but a storm that you are sanctifying.

I am going to look into the blazing eyes of the Great I Am.
He was dead and buried and now he is alive and gives life eternal.

Do you know the name?!
Sing it louder!
Say it prouder!
Let me hear you hope!
Our enemy is retreating, see him cower!

Death is defeated and sin has no more.
Freedom has arrived and hope is alive.
Do you know his name?
Do you know his name?!
contemplating how to prepare the words
that have racked up in your stomach.

Short breadths,
breathing to settle these words
as they rest on your tongue.

Those loaded lips,
speaking that final word
breaching your own code of conduct.

Comprised in haste,
you find that final word
has a nasty aftertaste.

This flavor,
is racking up in your heart
like a spice rack of Pride.

Filled and full,
tasting bitter, spicy and dull
this flavor has managed to take control.

On this flavor's original day,
a subtle sprinkle
started your foolish way.

The oft' familiar taste,
of this embarrassing heat stages under your eyes
as a glance of regret.

Hidden within a secret sauce,
displayed on a plate of words you have prepared;
this dish is for someone else eat it.
Proverbs 16:18
"Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall."

I find my self writing this poem in the midst of a fallen state. It is much easier to swallow pride before it has a chance to act out and affect others. After it is out and exposed, the taste is ever more bitter. But by the grace of Jesus, that bitter flavor of pride can be overpowered and southed with grace.

Black is my favorite color,
    for this I wish to only see black.

Black is not just for the night,
    nor set aside for death.

Black is not owned by the shadows,
    nor bent for the broken hearted.

Black is my intimate thrill,
    for it's the color I see as my lips kiss you.
"Going to be late for dinner. Rush Hour!"

Playing with the Platypus
pretending the Preying Mantis
made a makers mark
on the playing cards
secret Joker Deck.

Sitting on the sticky stick of stickers.

Sitting in the setting set by the table setters.

Sitting on the soft sofa sipping the sour soda.

Alliterating the alternate wording worth alliterating.
By grace, through faith we are saved,
by the blood that Jesus has paid.

Completely God and completely man,
this Jesus was killed by human hand.

A sacrifice he was,
Jesus loves you, just because.

Resurrected from the dead,
Jesus is alive, no matter what is said.

Living and strong,
Jesus is with you, all your life long.

Jesus is building his house so big,
he wants you to come and see his Kingdom gig ;)

Your are loved.
You are blessed.

In the Kings righteousness,
you are dressed.
If the rose is the most beautiful flower, then you are the prettiest of roses.
If the pearl is the most precious stone in the water, then you are the finest of pearls.
If gold is the most valuable thing on earth, then you are the purest of all the gold.
If woman is the pinnacle of Gods creation, then you are the zenith of woman.

I just can’t believe how beautiful women truely are. Women are the loveliest part of Gods creation. I just want you to know that you are loved and appreciated.
