Cosmic Torture

Cosmic Torture

I will go to the stream near the woods
Remove my many disguises
For now, this day
I've decided to reveal myself
For the fool I am,
The man I've been,
And pray
For understanding,
For it is there
In my nakedness
That God first sent me into this world
And,
It is how I will be presented
On judgment day,
And,
It's the manner in which
I give & pray
That I will drink Love in
With no disguises
In flesh alone,
And virginally
I will open my soul
To the cosmic
Torture,
I know,
I deserve.....

Hey Love!  This is fantastic!  I can tell you really manipulated your words in this one from the original...This comes across very humbled in nature....knowing that there is nothing that can be hidden from God.  An innocence comes when you allow yourself to finally be vulnerable before the One who already knows all your mistakes and secrets....We enter life very vulnerable and go to our grave in that same position.  I love the honesty of this write...so well put together....I love the entire thing.... Love you...Proud of you... Kisses  xoxxx your C

The pureness of your words as you lamented over a stream of emotions, giving unto humility , discarding all things pretentious as you kneel before the beauty of love .

Only the one that holds your heart has the  given right to hurt you ( to rip it apart)  , there is a powerful wisdom in knowing this form of willingness that comes with the uncertainty of it all...

My Dear Brother Poet Tony,

Under the stars, I bare my body
His light comes streaming down
I am bathed in His omniscience
My head is reverently bown

.
He cleanses me of my wanton past
My slate He wipes all clean
He ends my "Cosmic Torture"
With His knowledge that I glean

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx
