Girl Jesus

She wasn't Girl Jesus like you thought she was.
She was just human,
And you loved her,
And there is no shame in any of that.

You are the girl with the thorn in her heart.
It will finally heal,
And when it does,
It may feel like feeling nothing, but wait...

Time is a thief with a gift in her hand.
Your magick will light a truer heart,
Maybe even your own,
And there is no crime in any of that.

Thank you, G, for the conversation yesterday.

Debbie said...

We always set a trap for ourselves when we think someone is perfect, don't we?
This was beautiful.

time moves us on.

Agreed! This IS beautiful. And, to think it might have been somewhat inspired by G., makes it more dear to my heart.

I did write "dear to my heart?" Yep, guess so!

And Magick is there...and here. Your writing today is no less than eloquent, dear Shay. And this bit of philosophy: time, a thief bearing in her hand a gift-Oh, WOW!

"Whatever else I wished to say will at this moment set away
--'till possibly on future day
Time has stopped...to stay."

FB are you not proud of me, learning when to "shut my mouth"?

PEACE!

The last stanza says it all. Growing pains don't have to hurt all the time!

Gabriella Moonlight said...

There is never shame in loving, I have found that to be true and revealing of myself and others, I wish that there were not thorns to it, or that our rough edges were worn, but what would we learn ???

Thank you my dear heart for your poetry and your heart <3...

I love where your heart is going, Chica....and remember that old Boston song, "Don't look back."

Hugs..."Scarlet"

Scarlett said...

No crime at all in that.

I saw a sign in a podiatrist office....

"Time Wounds All Heels."



I believe that one to be true

Jesus walked on water. If I remember correctly, Riot Kitty and I have already decided that she would drown.

Your blog is full of zip, but I like your poems best of all. There's so much to be said in just a few words.
