A Letter To God

27 Apr

Dear You,

You have many different names. Which do You prefer? You can answer that later.

What I want to know is, what’s up man? Why was I sent in this direction? It’s a strange direction don’t you think? It’s a place I could have been for two decades, yet You waited for now to put me here. You didn’t stop me from devoting all of myself to the cause, yet You threw me into the game with no instructions. I don’t even get a cheat sheet or a website full of nerds who have played the game already.

I just get what I feel. Is that how You’re talking to me about it? I mean, that’s fine, I’m just curious. Do You think I’m strong enough for this? Is this why You’ve had me building my strength for the past six months? So I’d be ready to help when I was called?

I don’t know. I just feel confused. Perhaps my emotions are a little out of control. Did You intend for that to happen? Never mind, don’t answer that. I guess it’s not meant for me to know. Just please, God, if it’s your intention for me to be an angel in the life of a broken man, please keep giving me the strength to get through it.

And please give him the strength to see the other side of this. If he doesn’t, I don’t know if I can survive the backlash.

I’ll do it, God. I’ll do this insanity You assigned to me. However, please help me, because if You don’t, I will fail. And while it’s true that I don’t deserve to be second best, he doesn’t deserve to fail at this. Maybe between You and me, we can do this.



Love Makes You Fly, Then Breaks Your Wings

Love Makes You Fly, Then Breaks Your Wings

Your arm was so nice around my shoulders,
That I can’t put that day away
Without pulling it down
From the bookshelf again and again
Replaying the feeling that’s gone now.
I didn’t think we’d find ourselves here.
And you’ve started something
You don’t see. It so happens
That I really want to be with you
In all the craziest times of
The world, I never thought that
Would happen, but here I am.
We’ve circled for years around something
We had already found. I mean,
Why don’t we just stay together
In this crazy, lonely life? It’s funny how you’re
Walking in life and it turns into
This. I’m crazy for you but
Can’t show you for the sake of you.
Can’t say, baby can I hold you tonight?
Can’t say, I see you for you,
And I love you. For you.
Holding back is gonna hurt like hell,
But hell – as I stand by your side, silently,
I know -I’d rather be silent next to you
Than never near you again.
Even if that means I watch you move away from me.
