I am a character
In search of my author
Walking great distances in a circle
Wishing for a plot
Wanting a destination
Perhaps a soliloquy
Please fill my lips with your words

If you wish I will play the fool
You be my King
I am yours to rule

For too long
I have been without a script
From a confused heart my thoughts have dripped
Within your story I wish to be gripped

The Author of me
From whom I have roamed
Through your scriptures I will comb
Till I learn the lines that lead me home
As I study please capture my mind
Till within my spirit we are intertwined
Light from light no longer blind

You are the beginning and completion of me
Apart from you I cease to be
Thankyou, Thankyou for helping me see
The part of Your story written for me

    Surprised to see me, old friend? Well, wonderfully enough, I understood this poem quite well and marveled at your creativity and the crafty way you wrote this. It's really quite stunning, and you know if this is coming from me about a free-verse, that's saying a lot lol. I loved the message and sentiments expressed. Never, EVER thought I would "fave" a "free-verser", but this is exceptional and exquisite. Loved it, Richard :)

    wow, Richard, what an amazing poem this is. Monterey sees it as spiritual and it is obviously about God, but the romantic in me is seeing it as a love poem !! a fave!

    Wow, that sounds uncomfortable. It is good you have a way to distract yourself. I hope you have a quick recovery.

    Oregon, I had neck surgery Last week and now this angelic halo keeps me awake. So I stroll the night in the sleeping halls of Poetry Soup. Just simply love soaking in all the talent and heart the Soupers have. Hope you are well dear one.

    Ahhh . . . Our poems coincide pretty much today. I hear you reaching out for help. I did that for years, trying to come to terms with it all. I wish you luck in your endeavor, and I have a feeling you will come out the winner.

    I've been fortunate to have already come to terms with God many years ago. I am however still a work in progress, I never know what new lines he has ready for me to learn.

    and he does go on to say that all who seek shall find, and to whom all who knock the door shall be opened, and to whom all who ask it shall be given. Let us ask for wisdom and light... Beautiful poem, Richard. hugs, cate :)

    "For I know the plans I have for you,"says the Lord. "Plans to prosper and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." One of God's greatest promises recorded in the book of Jeremiah.
