God’s Answer To Walls: Romantic IMprov Blogging Poem

December 13, 2011

Could she,
with walls built high
and deep
open a small door
to her keep
and let me
in?

What does she fear?
What holds her back?
That I’ll get too near?
Place her heart under attack?

Perhaps, but she should know this:
All pain
is worth that gain.
and that risk.

She sometimes feels
I exist to romance her.
But what if I’m what’s real,
and simply God’s answer?

To A Shy Woman, Exposing: Romantic IMprov Poetry

April 28, 2011

She has unbuttoned
her blouse,
opened
her coat,
laid bare
her soul
before
my eyes.

Jericho’s walls
fell
with such
faith.

I’m awed
not by what
she has said,
but that she said
anything at all.

To, slowly,
one by one,
unbutton
her soul,
exposing
her inner self,
laying bare
her heart,
having faith
and hope
that they won’t
be trampled,
took courage
she didn’t know
she had.

Yet her face
glows.
Her body
warms.
A smile breaks
across her lips.

She feels,
finally,
again.
And feeling
feels
good.
