Waiting for Jesus to Rapture Her Away

I descend upon 45
dancing on the tips of open scissors
laughing at the obvious censure
of my intimacy
I caught the countless bouquets
purposely hurled at me
to comply with the world
of well-wishers
who knew absolutely
nothing of a desperation
can’t cry in public
too ugly
like public executions
a head beneath a giant razor
a neck bound by rough rope
one’s death should be private
as one’s humiliation a sacred
I wandered into this dead dream
and stayed
into incinerated landscape
filled with zombie populations
dragging themselves though
limping, crawling
I know too well the feeling
of murdered flesh
with purpose they have infested
the sacred walls of my earth
my childhood portrait
hung on the walls of my flesh
little girl lost in the maze
of a world too big
left under the stairwell
waiting for Jesus to rapture
her away.

Waiting for Jesus to Rapture Her Away by 

Just a bit of lamentation.

I am a servant of The Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Saviour and Lord. I am also a Christian mother who loves The Lord Jesus Christ. My writings are for His Glory. i belong to Him, and it is for Him, that i live. I honor the life God has created.

Exalt The Lord our God,
And worship at His footstool-
He is Holy!
(Psalm 99:5)

    wow , thank you for ease in which your Intimacy seeps into exression ….

  • Thank-you. You were probably the only person who understood this poem. Thanks for adding me to your watchlist. May God bless you! Only a little while longer, and the Lord will come to us. It seems so long for those who suffer. In Jesus’ Love, matty
