Obsession
Grace E 13h
His obsession twisted and tangled his mind
She danced in his thoughts
Inflaming his desires
Such a delicate woman
With such a strong, viper like grip
Every day he dwelled on her
Ruminating, calculating
She was his obsession
He would have her
Or else

Challenge
Grace E Nov 25
Adversity is a powerful teacher
You’ll never grow in comfort
Challenge will stretch you beyond where you ever thought you could go.

She wasn’t a gold digger,
She was gold.
Solid gold.

Sweet Release
Grace E Nov 17
Pain makes us feel like we’re dying,
And maybe, a part of us is.
But death and growth often go hand in hand.
After all, you have to prune branches
When you want a tree to grow stronger.
Maybe the pain is killing you a little.
But it’s killing a portion of you that is no longer required for your growth.
Don’t hold on to that dead thing.
Thank it for its lesson and release it.

Going for a Ride
Grace E Nov 12
She smears on her reddest lipstick
Pulls on her heaviest coat
Stuffs her hands in her leather gloves
Mounts her Vespa
Rides away into the stars
And never looks back

The Seasons
Grace E Nov 7
This girl was Spring
O the colors that poured from her mind
She was a healer
A life bringer
A creator and visionary
The earth became greener where she tread
O she danced with the cherry blossom petals as they fell and twirled in the air and wove through her hair,

This woman was Summer
Vibrant and warm
She  lit up ever room
She could revive a dull situation
And make any nighttime steamy
O she was fun and laughter wrapped inside the female form
She was heat and passion

This woman was Autumn
Deep and thoughtful
Everyone seemed to like her
Everyone looked forward to her arrival
She has a wisdom that comes with experience
Like an aging wine, she gets better with time
She knows how to let things go
The way trees let go of their leaves in the fall
She never holds onto pain of the past, but lets go of the dead things that no longer suit her.

This lady was Winter
Severe and regal
She was beautiful, but cold like snow
She commands a room
A warrior spirit wrapped in any icy casing
You do not want this woman as your enemy
Her words sting and she is mother nature’s revenge
She is withdrawn and queen like
She’s an untouchable beauty.

The Lion and The Lamb
Grace E Nov 4
First He came as a lamb
A sacrifice had to be made
He exchanged His life for ours
A high price for sin had to be paid

The sand in the hour glass has been falling
Years move at a faster and faster pace
He’s held back His hand of judgement
And extended His hand of grace

They’re going to hate Christians
That’s what the Bible says
They’ll try to make us denounce our faith
True followers will be faithful to the end

Jesus takes His church
The rapture, when we are taken away
The antiChrist will reign for 7 years
3 years will be good, but 4 will be evils payday

First He came as a lamb
A blameless offering,
But next, the lion of the tribe of Judah
Is coming as the King

Growing
Grace E Nov 1
I’ve died so many times.

The ghosts of all the girls I’ve been, linger in photographs and her writing is still inked in diary’s and journals from the past.

I know she is proud of who I am now.

And I look forward to who I will become one day.

The Needy
Grace E Nov 1
The world is kind to those with deep pockets,
But the needy are not rescued from the bitter cold.
To the homeless man I saw shivering in New York at Christmas time a few years ago, I wish life was different for you.

Dream Again
Grace E Oct 31
I dreamt of you last night.
Your features intertwined in my neural pathways.
Visions of you danced behind my eyelids.
I felt the warmth of your skin.
You put your head in my lap,
And I wove my fingers through your hair.
I kissed the top of your head.
Blessed and cursed dream,
That tantalizes me with your presence,
Then tortures me as you fade again into the depths of my heart and mind.
If a nighttime apparition is all I can have of you,
I’ll take it.
O, let me dream again.

The Birds Never Came
Grace E Oct 29
She sat alone in the quiet park,
On her favorite bench overlooking the town.
She unpacked her lunch,
Set aside her drink,
And pulled out a loaf of bread for the birds.
She sat and waited for her friends to arrive.
Whistling their pitchy chirps at her.
But the birds never came.
So she threw out a piece of crumbly bread,
Hoping they'd recognize the crunch of the crust.
But the birds never came.
And instead, a hoard of ants came in droves,
Devouring the bread.
And one lizard also helped them ravage it.
She longed for the birds,
But they never came.

For Better or Worse
Grace E Oct 26
I signed my name of the dotted line,
I took your surname,
Promising you “for better or for worse.”
I trusted you.
But you hurt me.
The saying is,
“If someone hits you on one cheek turn to them the other.”
But now, I find my self grappling with this near impossible notion,
Of not only turning the other cheek,
But kissing the fist that struck me.

2 Corinthians 10:4
Grace E Oct 7
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,
But mighty in God, for pulling down strongholds.
Carnal= Carne= Flesh
The weapons of our warfare are not in our flesh, but in God, to pull down the strongholds in our hearts and lives. Are you addicted to *******? God can help you pull that stronghold down. Are you addicted to your phone? To social media? To fake love? Jesus can help you pull down those things rotting in your heart and making your life sour. You only get one life. Choose to live this life for the next one, the eternal one, the one that doesn’t end.

Heart Beats
Grace E Oct 6
You have a sacred place in my heart
That no one can take away.
Though we can’t be together,
Please know, a portion of every beat of my heart
Belongs to you.

Lost in Her Eyes
Grace E Oct 5
he saw each glimpse of magic in her eyes
he traced every dream winding behind her eyelids with his pupils
unable to pull his eyes from hers
he found himself utterly lost in her mind
with no intentions of finding his way out any time soon

Love Wins
Grace E Oct 2
The term “love wins” is true,
Though gravely misused.
The worldly kind of love,
Which is often the attached definition to this term, never truly wins.
This love, which is ****** in nature,
Only leaves it’s participants more empty, and loveless than before.
****** love, when abused and mishandled, taken outside of its intended context, leaves you more empty, drained, used, and void of TRUE love than before you engaged in it.
You will never feel completely fulfilled with only ****** love, and how sad, to base your entire identity on how you like to have ***. How empty a life, to march under a flag of your selfish, ****** preference, rather than something truly meaningful.

Love wins, yes He does. love wins, because Jesus Christ, who was love in flesh, won, when He died on the cross and paid for the sin of the entire world. Including the ****** sin mentioned above. Love wins, when you ask Him into your heart, and believe in Him as your savior, the one who made the weighty payment for your soul, so you could spend forever in the presence of God, where the Bible says, there is “fullness of joy and pleasure forevermore.” Don’t chase fleeting pleasure, that lasts only for a moments at a ****** ******. Choose pleasure that nourishes your soul, gives life to you spirit, opens your eyes to perceive the kingdom of God. Choose that. Choose Jesus. Choose love.
Love wins.
Grace E Sep 28
They needed each other
Completed each other
He was the criminal
She was the saint
He had a tainted past
She was raised in a wholesome home
He was angry at the world
But she was his peace of mind
She had a heart to help broken people
And he was broken
She was delicate and soft-hearted
He protected her fiercely
And she served him lovingly
They where the fulfillment of each other greatest needs

The Unfailing One
Grace E Sep 23
I wish that I had Your eyes
That gazes into hearts and discerns motives
I wish I knew all that You have planned,
That I could stare down the tunnels of time
And understand the purposes of trials while they are happening
I simply must trust in You
In Your goodness
In Your grace
Even as the world is turned upside down
Kingdoms crumble and empires fall
Yet You never will
You are everlasting, eternal, unceasing, unfailing
I simply must rest in You
Acknowledging day by day
That You are God and I am not.

How Monsters are Made
Grace E Sep 16
Often times the villain
Was once a victim
Subjected to abuse or neglect
Often in the pursuit of killing their monsters
They become a monster themselves

Forever
Grace E Sep 16
Feeling the weight of commitment
No one ever warns a young bride
Of the difficulty of promise keeping
Of upholding an oath
Of dying to yourself and living for him
They say “diamonds are forever”
As I’m starring at my left hand
And gazing at my ring
That light grabbing tether
That glittering bond
I realize the diamonds represent us
Represents our vow
Represents forever

Look Up
Grace E Sep 14
Look up lonely soul.
The world’s still full of light.
The stars still shine for you,
Even in the blackest night.

That Type of Love
Grace E Sep 10
The type of love that melts selfishness
Burns the chaff of superficial attraction
The type of love that fuses spirits together
That transcends mortal, physical plains
Love that could drown rivers, overflow banks and shores
A love that breaks barriers and transcends logic and reasoning
Love that tangles souls together and intertwines psyches
That is the love we have
deep and fathomless, true and solid, wild and inflaming

Joshua
Grace E Sep 9
When Joshua crossed the Jordon River
God told 1 man from each of the 12 tribes to set up 12 stones
A memorial, to remember that God parted the river for them
The same way He parted the Red Sea for Moses when they were exiting Egypt
And Israel feared Joshua, the same way they feared Moses

Jesus stood in a boat with 12 disciples
Afraid for their lives when a mighty storm hit
Jesus arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was great calm, and the disciples feared exceedingly, saying to themselves “who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?”

God parts seas, and God calms storms.
First account is from Joshua 4, second account is from Mark 4. Was reading my Bible and was amazed at the similarities of these two stories, 12 tribes, 12 disciples, one God who moves or calms insurmountable obstacles on their behalf. Love it.

In Your Head
Grace E Sep 8
That’s where you went wrong darling,
You were trying to hide your feelings,
But you looked into my eyes
And splashed around in their blue green pool
I held that gaze and didn’t retract
And I knew exactly who you were in an instant
My energy attached to yours
Two conscious’s connected
I saw an insecure boy
With dreams of becoming a powerful man
I saw a wounded ego
A man who dreamed he’d be loved like a king
Instead, is treated like a pauper by those he made himself vulnerable to
I saw you looking at me
Like I was a new hope for you
I saw you stand up straighter
Your shoulders widened
Your eyes dilated
I saw you look back at me as you started walking away
I know you
I’m in your head
You can hide your feelings from everyone else
But not me, darling, not me.

Death & The Maiden
Grace E Sep 6
The thick night beckons her
The dense, black shadows are her vice
The lonely girl with a curious heart
Met death with his power to entice
His skeleton hand
Gently grazed her tender cheek
His soft touch made her heart flutter
She was lost and he was willing seek
So death kissed the maiden
A tale as old as time, indeed
The monster and the saint intertwined
The beauty and the beast
Sep 4 · 65
Living Large
Grace E Sep 4
She asked me to tone it down
But that’s just not in the cards
I only get to live this life once
So I’m gonna live it large
“Small” is not a word I like to use
“Shrinking” or “serious” I don’t dig
I lean into the dazzling life that’s worth living
And it’s worth living big

Shepherd
Grace E Sep 3
Be careful when approached with an opportunity for leadership
No one tells you how heavy a shepherds staff truly is
Grace E Sep 2
I don’t want to take off my pajamas
I’m already so comfy
I ate too much today
And feel self-conscious of my tummy

I just showered
Now my hair is flat
I want to have a quiet night
I don’t want to put on an act

My hormones are debilitating
I’m having horrible ***
You ****** me off today
And the house is a mess

You never listen to me
But want me to spread my legs
Not on your life, pal
Don’t get your ***** anywhere near my eggs

You only care about yourself
You don’t get the job done
I’m not in the mood
To pretend I’m having fun
Aug 28 · 73
I hate you
Grace E Aug 28
He punches her in the mouth,
Then buys her flowers.
True love, no doubt ❤️

Move Forward
Grace E Aug 27
You can’t break someone who’s already broken
You can trap someone who’s already fettered
You can’t change the future unless you learn from the past
You can’t heal if you’re not willing to get better
You can’t dance if you’re only willing to observe
Can’t smile if you’re dedicated to a frown
Can’t move forward until YOU decide to
Can’t go up if you’re always looking down
Aug 25 · 680
Sheep
Grace E Aug 25
Some people like to think of themselves as the black sheep...
I’ve always considered myself more of the glittery sheep of the flock
Oh, my wool is sparkling? Didn’t even notice ;)

Symphony
Grace E Aug 24
Life is composed of beautiful moments
Stitched together with hope
Though there are patches of heartache and uncertainty
But all in all
It is a fine garment
Woven with the tender and caring hands
Of the creator
A symphony of color and sound and taste
Life, even with its doubts
Is a true gift for a heart that is grateful for it
Aug 20 · 66
Persephone
Grace E Aug 20
Shedding the virginal pink robes
Bestowed upon her in girlhood
The sweetness in her eyes
Stolen by fire, she could drop men
With her glances
She lifted her head
As they draped her in red
Crowned her and bowed down
Queen of the dead
Aug 20 · 43
Secret Love
Grace E Aug 20
Every time I am inexplicably drawn in
To your looming aura
Your gregarious presence
I feel flowers growing in my chest
My heart is a butterfly
Writhing in its chrysalis
Inspired to break free
You have this strange power over me
I feel it so tangibly I’m worried
Can others smell the attraction emitting off me
I’m worried of how palpable it is
How evident and fragrant it is
But I look around and see
It’s only you and I
Starring at each other, longing for the other
It’s only you and I who know what’s happening
We are in our own secret little garden
Harboring our own maddening, sweetening, secret love
Aug 19 · 84
Positano
Grace E Aug 19
I want to run away to Italy
Live with you by the sea
We could spend all our days
Twisting up spaghetti Bolognese
Pack our bags don’t tell a soul
Leave our problems and some notes
“Sorry, but we had to go”
Turn into a couple ghosts
I want to snuggle up on the warm sandy beach
I’ll feed you grapes and kiss your cheeks
Get tangled in steamy sheets
I want to run away to Italy
Live with you by the sea
Live a long life with you, happily
Aug 19 · 57
Thinking of You
Grace E Aug 19
I should be counting sheep
Trying to get some sleep
I’m just laying here in my bed
You’re running Olympic sized marathons, through my head
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
At the cross roads of the morning and the night
Like the way you do for me, it seems
When I should already be having dreams
I’m dreaming, but I’m not in R.E.M like I should be
I’m dreaming about you and what it’d be like if you were here with me
If it was your arms I was in
If you and I were with each other again
I wonder what you’re doing, if you’re really happy where you are
I wonder if that lady laying next to you, who doesn’t fulfill you, is really what you want
I could give you what she lacks
If that’s respect or if just in the sack
I study you, watch you closely, listen to everything you say
I know you’re feeling unimportant and unneeded by her anyway
Cause she doesn’t “treasure you or worship you the way you thought your woman should.”
I already worship the ground you walk on, I could make you feel so good
I’m laying here wide awake thinking of so many things
Mostly you and you only. You know you’re kind of haunting me
I wish I could just tell you all that I see
I notice you when you’re leaving, you always look back at me
I know what you’re feeling
Your imaginations reeling
I know you’re intrigued by my mystery
You’ve got a fantasy
That I’m more than willing to fulfill
You could build
A new life
With a new wife
That understands
Makes plans
Washes your clothes and holds your hand
So now as I lay me down and go to sleep
And pray the Lord your soul to keep
I wish I was the one laying in your sheets
I hope when you wake up, you’re thinking of me

Lady Luxury
Grace E Aug 12
Her eyes sparkled so,
Like sapphires set in pearl cases
Sunshine bouncing off the ocean
Reflecting her exquisite taste
Her dialect was diamonds
Refinement, her vocabulary
Her goal was gold
Her native tongue was luxury
She could outshine the sun
At least that’s what they say
Mystery girl dripping in jewels
Could dazzle the darkest day

Persuasion
Grace E Aug 9
Aphrodite never died
She scattered into a billion pieces
And shards of her exist in women
Who understand their ****** power and persuasion
Isn’t a joke
Grace E Aug 7
Dip my arrow in perfume
So my fragrance will linger
Draw my bow and shoot his heart
Get him wrapped around my finger

I aim to poeticize my presence
Become a symbol in his mind
“I could give you what you want. I know you’re unhappy with  life.”

Dig my fingers
Into his malleable male essence
Flash him “I want you” eyes
Then quickly return to indifference

Appeal to his inner hero
Then find a distraction
Praise him for a moment
But always delay satisfaction

That is my conclusion
A feminine deduction
Leave a man hungry
That is the key of successful seduction
Aug 7 · 659
Athena
Grace E Aug 7
She wore wisdom and war
Behind the veil of her eyes
A piercing discernment
Her eyes were a monument
Of the undercurrent
Swelling in her soul

Getting Stronger
Grace E Aug 6
Every time you break me
Just know, my bones are adhering
I’m getting stronger
I’m getting smarter
I’m getting harder and harder to break
And one day, darling, one day
I’ll have no more mercy left for you
And I’ll be strong enough to hit back
Aug 6 · 78
Torn Apart
Grace E Aug 6
We blazed
Flames in our eyes
****** each other with words
And incinerated our paradise
Cackled like hyenas
Possessed by a strange entity
All we could do was hurt
Swept away by a gale of fiery fury
And after all the pain inflicted
After the repeated jabs in the heart
After we burned what green was left
We stood bewildered and torn apart
Jul 24 · 103
The Final Act
Grace E Jul 24
The weight of the water crushes her
The result of pain she didn’t tell
No one stood between her and the brink
For her final act, she bowed... and fell
Jul 23 · 71
Unconditional
Grace E Jul 23
There is love
Unfathomably deep
Boisterous currents
That churn far underneath

Emotions can drown you
A rumbling abyss is this love
The faint of heart
Cannot rise above

Yes there IS a love
For which you would die
That’s what I feel for you
I pray it’s what you feel for I

But even if you don’t
My feelings will not halt
For it is the very nature of unconditional love
To love, even to a fault
Jul 21 · 256
Knight in Shining Armor
Grace E Jul 21
I am indebted to you sir
Thank you I must
For reminding me
Of the feeling of trust
So long I’ve pretended
To be stronger than I am
A force to be reckoned with
That is in need of no man
But you’ve changed my heart
You’ve made me see
To be vulnerable is beautiful
And it sets us free
You alone rekindled the maiden
That is within me
So thank you so much
For helping me see

Lost Opportunities

I wish I would’ve savored that final hug
Just a little bit longer

Binary Stars
Grace E Jul 17
The tragedy of binary stars is
No matter how long they orbit each other
They will never merge
Destined for eternity to admire each other
Locked in a spin around one another
Yet never able to touch
Just like you and I
He stares at me. I stare at him. We smile at each other from across the room. We wave at each other, but that is all we will ever be able to do. We are like binary stars.

La Sirena
Grace E Jul 15
In the underworld
Beneath bellowing breadths
In weighty waters
In disorienting depths

Thats where she lurks
Completely unseen
The siren
With a seductive gleam
This is for all the girls, who aren’t “shady” per-say, just a little “underworldy” we are the true mermaids ❤️

Room Full of Men
Grace E Jul 14
In a room full of men
Of brawny size
Winning smiles
And confident eyes

If they all had wit
And clever charm
Were gentlemen
Who’d offer a girl their arm

And if they were all
Impeccably dressed
Suits and ties
Their formal best

Intelligent
With a high IQ
In a room full of men like that
I’d still look for you
No else compares to you.
