Bones of the Poem: Day21 #NaPoWriMo

Photo by Andrew Jones on

Let this poem, be the poem that finally 

swallows my ego, 

where i have died a thousand and one 

deaths, only to die again tomorrow, 

Let this poem be the blade of judgment, 

and bring back a compassionate plea,

blessed be the ointment of my soul, 

and I will know how it feels to feel, 

tears falling like monsoons out of season,

and I will know how it feels to feel, 

broken like the alabaster box at the feet of Jesus, 

and I will know how it feels to feel  alive, 

like the woman with the issued of blood,

twelve long years bleeding out

this single prayer,

and I will know this prayer sits at

 the door, patiently waiting for me,  

to come

home. Poet Krissy Mosley video created and spoken by me

    Oh, wow, Krissy … this really touched my soul. The words have such a beautiful depth to them. You have such talent with the spoken word, and it is an honour to have heard your voice. You have such a great skill with both written and spoken word poetry. Keep going, my friend xxx ❀ ❀ ❀
