"A Broken, Humble Heart"

Is this what love is?
This constant feeling
And desire to shout from the rooftops
The splendor of You?

Am I in love?
I cannot sleep for
Thoughts of You.
And all I once wanted
Seems archaic, pointless, vain, and stupid.

Only You,
Always You
Forever…
I can only cling to the hope
You will not reject this humble offering-
A broken, humble heart…

I like this one, it is condensed. Every word and every line has value.

Oh GOOD!!! I tend to ramble SO much in my poetry. I am glad I didn't this time.

I agree with scribbley "Every word and every line has value" I don't think you ramble in your poetry. Most of your poetry gives me goose bumps when I read it. keep writing

Ah, thanks, Travis. But most all of my poetry is inspired by the Lord and something He is teaching me. So ALL the credit goes to Him.

Way to go, girl! Christ is our true and only desire as we press on to run the race that was set before us. 'it's not about us. it's all about Him.'
