I’ll write on pages in blue fading black,
rip off my white angel wings for you.
I told God I felt lust so I am damned,
I will fall but I’ll have you to me soothe.
I’ve forsaken all else and my celestial light
to be with you and to never be alone.
I have not lost something you can’t replace;
behold my allegiance I give a throne.
I will etch you onto the pages of my soul
watch you breathe life into me again.
You’ll scratch into our hearts a united chorus
so the both of us will always reign.
My words are now transgressions
I confess it is scripture in my soul
that we both will be lost as well
as have for us a life we can control.
Writing on these pages in blue and black
caught in the ink passion that binds,
I’m in ecstasy calm filled with no regret;
in my new heaven I leave the old behind.
Jared and I really dug into the intense emotions and images while creating this poem, but we had a blast doing it! Thanks Jared… it’s always fun to share the creative process with a friend.
