hearts

A Poem By Clare Marie // 5/29/2010

**So the other night, I couldn't get to sleep...and finally I picked up my little scripture passage-a-day book.  I forget what exactly the passage was, but the words "Abide in Me" stuck out at me...and then this "prosy sort of poem" just came out of my fingers...and I guess my heart too. :)**

-

Alone with my failings
Alone in the night
I felt my heart
Beating
The rhythm it pulsed was one of sadness
And it spoke a language of loneliness

Alone with my failings
Alone in the night
I reached with my heart....

Beating.

Beating.
Not one heart, but two.

My heart beat a staccato of fear
The other heart beat a slow beat of love

He held me close
My heart against His
And He waited patiently for my heart
Waited for my heart to beat with His
Simultaneously

Patiently, slowly, gently He whispered
Abide
Abide with Me
Abide in Me
Abide, My love, in Me because
I love you

And as He spoke, I could hear His heart
Beating

Alone with His heart
Alone in His love
I felt my heart
Beating
The rhythm it pulsed was one of weeping
And it spoke a language of openness

Alone with His heart
Alone in His love
I reached with my heart....

Beating.

Beating. (His heart was beating.)
Not two hearts, but one.

Gorgeous!

 This was very very well-done, Clare Marie.  You should stay awake at night more often if poetry like this is the result! ; )

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!
