my confession

Prayers

Last week, my dear friend G. of Short Prose challenged me with the prompt of using the word “confession.”  When you have a moment, please read her beautiful poetry and/or wonderful excerpts of her manuscript Glass Lovers.

Here is my submission…..(of course it’s about love, when isn’t it?)

my confession

.

Blessed are those
who read your poems
For I am one of those
who was baptized
in the cathedral
of your words
You rescued me
from the apocalypse
resurrected me
from the dead
Now I give you my confession
etched in stone
Adoring your poetry
is my penance
Loving you in silence
is my sin

  1. The heart never keeps secrets very well… it skips beats and races whenever a lover is near. You just need a stethoscope to listen to its confessions. ❤️😈 Beautifully sinful poetry… you do these well.

  2. To keep being inspire, is what amazes me about you, that’s why I long to read your poetry. Each of your post is inspiring not just my creative mind, but many of those who commented or did not say a word. For many times, I’ve been a silent observer of your work. Keep inspiring. Have a marvelous, blessed week.

      1. Hoping and praying that you are at your best, after reading of your accident. Take good care of yourself. May your heart and life be gifted on this season of giving, with joy, peace and love. But the love I wish for you, is the love of the reason for Christmas. God bless you with His abundant love.

    1. Actually, as soon as WordPress offered this new posting format I accepted it. It works by blocks.
      It gives you a little more freedom with font size. And since I have problems with my vision, I jumped at the chance
      Thanks for noticing and mentioning it.

  3. I always am drawn to romantic writing that alludes to spirituality in the wordplay, but here I think you’ve written something deeper than you realise, Drew… I feel that love is more of a spiritual experience, than an emotional and physical one – especially one that is silent, unspoken…

    “I am one of those
    who was baptized
    in the cathedral
    of your words”

    Each line here is excessively beautiful to me, but this was just awe inspiring, mesmerising, inspirational.

    1. Isha, thank you for this gorgeous commnet. To be honet, I used to think love was emotional and physical. It wasn’t until recently that I realized it is the spiritual connection that really matters.

      Humbled that you see something deeper in this poem. Thank you for your lovely words and encouragement, Very grateful.
      Thank you so much

      1. Very true. A spiritual connection… the knowing that no matter what situation of life you’re in, or how apart you are physically, you’re safe, you’re loved, just because they exist… That you may breathe easy, that this world, with its many trials and tribulations, is a better place simply because of their being in your life…

        I’ve been reading a few of your poems and there’s mostly a bigger picture to it. You’re a very gifted writer, Drew.
