The Feet of the Lord

i look at Your feet Lord
they were dusty, and nailed
women kissed them

there is my understanding of what
Your feet mean to me
without the world to tell me how to feel
Your feet hold particular significance to me
i know i am not even worthy to kiss them
still i belong bowed there
Your feet is the best place for me right now

i am unloved, undesirable, aging
Your feet hold answers for me
the unreachable solutions to all
that plagues me right now

the world eats away at my self-esteem
sometimes prayer is myself calling out
Your name Jesus
saying i need You and please love me
holding out my arms like a toddler
who’s been injured
the ceiling looking down at my fetal
position and the pity it would feel
more than most
deeper than the feelings my father has
had for me
its been years since he really
considered me

i want the feet of Jesus
just give me His feet
to kiss an eternity
my tears to wash down
mingle with His blood
it is personal, it is most
intimate, and i will not
give up the position of
His ten toes

i cannot look at His eyes
pure and filled with radiance
nor dare i lay my head against
His heart
i don’t deserve to tuck my head
underneath His chin
not that i really even deserve
His feet, but i will lie there
prostrate, and if i must wait
in a queue, so be it

it will be worth waiting for
let me feel Your warmth
while i shiver
i do not ask more
than those wonderful ten toes
let me weep an eternity
wash your skin
gently lay my black hair there
let me dry the beauty and quiet
repose of those feet

Who am i?
to even desire
the feet of the Lord
but i will be most content
to pour my kisses and tears
to give You what men would
not take from me
just my gentle aches
my heartfelt sorrow
the things I regret and wish
i could change
the simple heart of a simple woman
who loved without complication

You loved without complication
without condition
with surrender
abandon and tender passion

With Your feet
You hung, spikes
forced through Your flesh
i want to spend a lifetime
there to find the healing
i find nowhere else
