Love doesn't always come with an offering plate

Walk with me as I am or hear me as I scream into the wind.

Scream with me until it seeps in your pores and those of your neighbors'

I can't take one more step towards something I just simply don't believe in anymore.

Today, I learn to live appreciating what I see, what I feel and knowing that love is an explosion of sentiments, experiences and questions that often have no answers.

I hear you pushing me to explain why I can't say, "I am in love with you."

But what answer have I to bring when the words are mere illusions to me?

How can I fathom what the touch of this sentiment brings if I can not relate to the words, the moments in time that have never past the door of my soul?

What more do you want? Who do you think I am supposed to become other than the fabric of me that has been sewn together by my life's own patch quilt time line?

Am I supposed to run in the fields of others' lives to collect what they call love and place it in a jar to pass along to you so that you feel what you want me to offer?

Walk with me as I am or hear me as I scream into the wind.

And the souls of those who came before us will join me in the hauntingly, raw chorus.

For all who breathe today to hear now, before the bear trap cuts through their own flesh -

Love does not always come with an offering plate!

Words I heard a long time ago. Very accurate portrayal of drama unfolding through out time.

There are moments in time that somehow choose to resurface for one reason or another. All this mixed with the time on the clock of the moment. It makes for strange contemplation.

Thank you, Cher. I am led to believe I need to get through the hardest part of my book now. The dreams or nightmares don't seem to want to let go. So, I will let them speak on paper:)

Frank, how observant you are of a time in someone's life. This moment is mine. I would gladly pass it on if it weren't so haunting.

Thank you TOTM (taking off the mask)! I was inspired by a song I was listening to on my little Ipod shuffle. I found myself playing it over and over again. And like words that may have been penned in a journal, these same words simply poured out through the keys of my computer.

I was also inspired to move past a very difficult part of my book. The early morning hours were unexpected moments that brought me the strength I needed to be honest about one of the most emotionally crippling times of my life.

Thank you all for allowing me to feel like a writer. I do gain strength from such positive words and encouragement from those of you here at Broo who are blessed with the ability to write. I am grateful for each of you. My humblest thanks.
