    long time poets in residence...just a little prose. perhaps more later...
    --------------

    i was on trial with you
    back when we were two
    new
    learning my ways
    i let you know truths
    no one else knew
    because...
    we were two...new
    we shared midnight thoughts
    of life and all its colorful
    hues
    hoping and waiting on someone
    who would be true
    for life had been so
    cruel...
    there was no me without
    you...until

    stuff is crazy now
    i am on trial
    past acts of indiscretions
    regrets and other stuff
    come back to haunt my person
    from a grave in which they
    decayed...for years...
    now...trial after trial
    convictions and perjuries
    for the sake of letting a past
    life...lie..die
    i accept the terms of my
    conviction and serve the time
    for the past you resurrect over
    and over again...
    my person...tired and drained
    because...
    i am on trial...with you

    Haaaaaaay MsDLite :wave:

    so good to read you again

    deep peace

    if i'm feeling you properly
    understanding what i've read

    deep peace

    to trust someone
    with your heart's true confession

    and then ...

    watching them testify against you

    oh my :(

    deep peace

    :heart:

    I can't even

    begin to type the words that express how well I understand this, sis. I'll just share a piece of me, with you, that touches on the awesome power of forgiveness, when God is in it.

    peace

    peace for my soul

    ...as i call upon the dove
    that floats in air with
    swirls of white cloud
    ...the sun drips golden rays...

    peace for my soul...

    thank you...poets!
