Desperate Love

Your voice in the shadowy places of my mind

Causes me to come running to our trysting place

A place where lovers meet

For You are the lover of my soul


Sleep bows down to You

It remains at bay until You release me

This is a precious time of sharing our love

When words are not always needed


 There is a melding of spirit to Spirit.

An infusion of truth pours forth from You

I receive it as one desperate

And starving for the Bread of Life.


My soul is parched

I must drink from the fountain that never runs dry

Words cannot express how much I need and want You

For Your love alone is all that sustains me


 My next breath, my next heartbeat

Depends upon Your love

for without it I am no more

Life without You is death in itself


Without You, life has no meaning

The void so great, it swallows who I am

The emptiness so vast, like the universe

Too great a span to cross


Without You, my life would return to that place before creation

No womb to hold me, no mother to birth me

No thought of me to bring to remembrance

My need for Your love is that desperate
