The Inner Voice

There was a peace

But I don’t have it now.

Too many words

Whirling inside of my soul.

There was a light

But I don’t need it now.

I have my own

Inside my heart.

The rest will come

When all is written down

When emptiness is all that’s left.

 

This is not what I bargained for

Fervent prayers,

Open wounds.

 

Don’t speak,

It’s quiet now.

Wait, don’t turn away.

Whisper, I feel you here

My heart in your hands.

 

Speak now,

I’m listening.

I won’t turn away.

Your words are everything

Write on my heart.

 

Myself emptied

To be filled.
