Unquenchable Love

 

• • •

 

If I could only see you, Lord,
as you are
a wild Lover
intent on loving
absolutely
each beloved —
unless prevented
by the wild horses of an untamed
savage will —
I would know the desire
in your heart
and would beg
on my knees
each day
the grace
to tame
my savagery
and so
unbar the door
and let my Beloved
enter
the quiet stable of a bridled heart.
