Words lie heavy beneath an ocean.
Water weight in tears.
And the deciding not to shed them.
Swallowing them down your sore throat and...
Putting on your big girl pants.
Pulling up on your boot straps.
Pain just leaking out everywhere anyhow and...
Not enough fingers to plug all the holes.
So you plunge your heart down into HIS.
Submerge yourself in the flow of His love, a...
Cling hard to His promises.
Touch His robe.
Rub your cheek on His hem.
And cry the only cry you've ever really known.
"Jesus! Son of David, have mercy on me!"
