Nothing about Love

Your love
Has
Hit me
Between the eyes
Hit me
Between the eyes
Of my heart
And exposed my heart
That I know
Nothing
Would that I’d said
Nothing
About love
Before
Pitty now
I already have a book
Full of speculations
Now I tremble
For I have spoken
Of things
I have only
Ever
Watched
From afar
Now I tremble
Oh if I knew
I would’ve
Never writ
Before I ever
spoke of matters
of Love

POEMS INTO MUSIC

My poem Yeshua was turned into a song by Katie Winter http://www.myspace.com/thekatiewinter

Yeshua
Let me breathe You in
Yeshua
Yeshua
Let me exhale
Yeshua
May Your lips
Know my name
Sikelelwa
As I breathe
As I exhale
Yeshua
Or else
I am lost

Yesu

Yesu,
Your name is beautiful power
hidden in the substance of all creation
Yesu
the substance that holds all the universe together
Yesu
the wonder of life
the creative genius of your name
Yesu
the salvation
the beginning and the end
Yesu
the sole reason I am smiling
thank you for the unending nature
of your love
thank you for being my peace
when all the pieces feel as though they are falling apart
Yesu
my Yesu
the sun that never goes down
the lamp that can never be put out
the peace that can never be stolen
my Yesu
my love
my perfect one
my secure love
my unending perfect love
Yesu
let me speak your name
forever
Yesu
Yesu
Yesu
thank you
the very thought of your name brings me peace
speaking your name floods me with joy
beholding you increases the value of my life
my life is because it is in yours that I live
Yesu
let me breathe your name in
so that I might live forever with you
Yesu

Love or Nothing

I want love or nothing.

I want love or nothing because in love is everything.







This is my resolve in life.

Being Alive

Not everyone wants to be alive. It is easier to be dead I have noticed. Everyone is born alive, tasting things for the first time and discovering new things and enjoying every discovery. At some point during growth men and women begin to die, bit by bit. The pain of life comes and stings one part and the brave continue to live and for others it is an instant death. We make vows of death such as "I will never again" we shut ourselves indoors trying to find safety but we do not realise that we shut ourselves from the sun too and the beauty of the rainbow. We die professing to be surviving. We never live.

I want to feel the sunshine pernetrate my eyes. I want to feel the heat of fire burn my hands, the cool of the rain washing my skin. I want to embrace the pain of death so that I will give it all up as I experience the fullness of life.

I want to be alive with everyone else around me.
