One last time.

Did you go too far on this walk?
Upsetting such a bleeding heart could show foolishness
Oh please forgive me
Can’t you see that I am only a clown?
It matters not the length of the walk
But did you speak while you walked?
If you did not
Oh what a waste of time
One who tends to speak from the heart without having to
Search out his next verbal communicate
Gifted is he?
The bird is nesting
She has ones that she tends
For this I should be shot
Gunned down at home
Time to imagine
Fancy romance
Hot blooded sexual intercourse
Your face in the pillow as I thrust from behind
But her face is of beauty
Like the wave upon the golden sands
Light glowing
Tender to the eye
Have I gone too far?
My words soon become my noose
And I await my execution
Speak to me
I need to hear your voice again within me
It’s been so long since we have spoken
Then call me by my name
If you wish to hear my words then call out my name
For all to hear
And yet you remain silent
And a great hush was heard all over the world
Which shows your faith in me
That is dwindling and slowly falling away
Maybe not by you
But many others
You know that I love you
Then give to me the proof that I ask for
My ears bring me pain
For all I hear is the deep silence of the night
Now I shall turn my head from you
Oh please do not do that
Don’t look away from my face
Then I ask one last time
Call my name

For my love -
Call out my name.

One last time.

Artist's Description

At this point in my life I was looking, not just look but begging for more. I wanted love and sex. I was also looking for proof. Proof that those spirits within me, those who spoke out loud within my mind were real and not only my wild imagination. I was fighting the idea that I was communicating with people around me mentally- that even tho the church would have me stoned to death for saying the voices were those of “man” and not of “God”. I find that to this day I am still fighting for the truth. I wonder if I will ever get the honist answer. Is there a God?
