Do something pointless for 20 minutes this week.

Wrapped firm betwixt hoofed hands

Who says we have the right to cry
The will to love
The audacity to receive too
The ears to convey lipped winds to barren hearts
Scorched from desertation
And crazed voices of angel cry
Cursed of love to wait for love

And yet…

We write for our right to love
Of our hope to be loved
To long
And be longed after


To seek and be found
To hold and be held dear
This is our hope
