Cry of the Heart

Submitted by Heather on Wed, 09/05/2007 - 15:19

It’s something you love
Yet bitterly hate
The feel in your chest
The hollow empty place
It’s something you can’t
Quite put into words, a
Longing for something
New and better
Something that stirs
But never fully wakes
It brushes the edge
Of your consciousness
When you look at a
Hauntingly beautiful scene
Something about it
Makes your chest ache
For a thing so glorious
Something so far better
Than earth can offer
Heed its call, Lord God
The Cry of the Heart
