I wither without you

I wither without you
my firmest ground falls from beneath me should you turn but one thought away
all strength is dust, flung to the wind
I wither without you

The short conversation

I feel so alone, I say
I feel so exposed
I feel so guarded

You are standing on the shoulders of giants, God says
You are protected
You are called to openness

Do not shy away from pain, says the Lord,
for my blessings are often built on top of it

The spirituality of writing

Write into the unknown, my dear, says the Lord;
Write until you find the texture of my faceless face
Write until you come to the density of my source
Write until we are
