You drive me CRAZY
Every word like slivers of ice
Digging in my brain and melting
Leaving no trace but the damage they’ve done.
I fear what will follow this infatuation
I fear who I may end up
Will the winds of love erode my eyes
Til I cannot see without your help?
Nightly searing flames devour
Sicknesses that kept me sane.
I lose it all when moonlight calls
And silence claims my mind again.
Knock, knock, the branches come tumbling
Snare me in their jumbled arms
The rotten wood that lives in my bones
Screams at me to set it aflame.
Blurry eyes see blurry paths
And stumble down them wrongly;
An hour spent in lost lament
The cost of vision that worries.
Worth is not books or a film or a show,
The places you’ve been or the people you know.
Value knows not a master so true,
As the Lord of the stars – for He treasures you.
Place not your name in mortal things,
Or glimm’ring words that hauntingly sing.
Protect yourself against groundless thoughts –
Place your heart in His hands for the peace He has bought.
Worry not, dear child, over relations nor finance;
Do not let your weary heart be troubled.
You are safe in His arms, take part in His dance,
He will catch you each time you stumble.
