    Hello! I am Brittany Malachi and, instead of introducing myself, I will let my poetry do the talking....


    A Diamond In The Rough


    From the moment I saw you

    You had my mind

    You introduced me to a dance

    Of a new kind

    I never knew

    I would feel your touch

    Get lost in your soul,

    Tender kisses and such

    I never thought

    I could feel such pain

    That would alter the chemistry

    Of my analytical brain

    From a phoenix’s rising

    To a withering rose

    A moment in your presence

    Kept me off my toes

    Insecurities present

    Interactions

    No longer pleasant

    But love rooted its unexpected head

    And sooner than later

    I was left for dead

    I wanted to hate you

    But knew I couldn’t

    Everyone wanted me to

    But I knew I wouldn’t

    They called you a dog

    But I saw your beauty

    I defended you

    As if it was my duty

    But you didn’t care

    I saw your pain

    And because I caused it

    I started to go insane

    I didn’t know what I had lost

    I didn’t know until I paid the cost

    That you were all I ever wanted

    That you were all I ever needed

    Succeeded

    Failure was not an option

    But failure was my adoption

    When I realized the error of my ways

    The ending of my days

    Knowing the one who had my heart

    Would be the one to rip it apart

    But God knew better

    He let me know in His love letter

    That even though

    You didn’t feel the same

    It was okay

    For the love to remain

    So, for your sake

    I hope you take

    These words as closure

    And for your sake

    I hope you make

    A different exposure

    Releasing all the hate

    And embracing the peace

    Ending all the pain

    And letting it cease

    But if you’re not ready

    I totally understand

    If it helps to never see me

    Then, I honor your command

    Though it hurts,

    I’ll move on

    And if it makes you better

    Then, I’ll be gone

    Just know

    I would have given you the world

    Just to be

    Your one and only girl

    The woman in your life

    That wouldn’t give you strife

    But one hundredfold

    Of things untold

    For what it’s worth

    I would have given you heaven on earth

    Who knows what could have been

    Had we not fallen into sin

    Not the intimate moments

    God knows

    I don’t regret those

    But the moment we turned on each other

    Becoming enemies

    Making beautiful moments

    Tainted memories

    But, now,

    As God revives and prunes

    He has me dancing to

    A new set of tunes

    One day,

    You’ll find yourself thinking of me

    One day,

    You will finally see

    That when Christ pursued you

    He came like a man pursuing His bride

    He wanted to give you a diamond

    But had to test your pride

    He gave you one

    In platinum setting

    And you did things

    You were later regretting

    But the Savior decided

    To give you another chance

    To give you another shot

    At love’s romance

    He decided to test you

    Another diamond he revealed

    To restore your faith

    And allow your spirit to be healed

    He found one in the rough

    Put it under pressure

    Had to see if you could love it

    Beyond measure

    But you rejected it

    You were ashamed

    You didn’t even want it

    Associated with your name

    So He sent it off

    To get refined

    Trusting the Jeweler

    With all assigned

    As He continued to pursue you

    You sought out other stones

    Committed to the Savior

    Knowing He would never leave you alone

    You found you one

    Though not what He desired

    He gave it to you

    Because you were inspired

    You wore it faithfully

    Showing it off to all to see

    You were so happy

    You forgot all about me

    You forgot all about

    That diamond in the rough

    But the Savior kept me

    Though it was tough

    Oh, but it won’t be long

    Before you see me again

    In reverence of my beauty

    And all I have within

    You will be in awe

    Of my finished state

    You will find yourself

    Wishing to be my mate

    You will see how I shine

    In God’s light

    You will wish you were mine

    In the wee hours of the night

    For I know too well

    These things I tell

    For you are a diamond

    My diamond

    A diamond in the rough

    Whew! Welcome BrittanyMalachi, and we still don't know much about you, except that you can write and as such, very verbosely. But please, enjoy your stay with us.

    Peace In,

    Here's an understandable observation of the record Brittany, by your replies made to recent posts, you appear shy; but by your posts you appear beyond your age in wisdom... :wow:


    Peace In,

    Good observation; however, I wouldn't say I was shy. Just reserved, but I do have my moments where I can be quite radiant and outgoing. I have to get comfortable before I can expose the clown inside.... :nuts:
