To wear one's heart upon a sleeve

Foolish it always seemed to me

Cold and aloof, by some perceived

Ghoulish, by others, deemed to be

 

Shrouded in a protective layer 

Frangible, fragments would assert

That shattered shards, entombed once were

A fleshly, warm and beating heart

 

Searching, for context and release

Fearful, I reached into my soul

Perused each wretched, ragged piece

Trying to reconstruct the whole

 

A heart exposed to every threat

Raw and defenseless, stands alone

Deep is my sorrow and regret

Better a heart, encased in stone!

 

This page, my ear, this ink my blood

The vein from which my heart can bleed

For humans neither care, nor love

Another broken heart, in need

 

16/1

Last night, family dynamics dictated that it was best for me to go somewhere I hadn't intended going.  I am thankful that I did and knew from the outset that I was meant to be there.  I don't recall ever reading this Psalm.  Perhaps I did and the words just glossed over me, which has often been the case.  I thought I'd share it here, should another despairing person stumble upon this offering.  

 

I cried unto the Lord with my voice; with my voice unto the Lord did I make my supplication.

I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. 

Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 142

To really learn to love, we must be able to be defenseless, and most often you will receive a knife, but so did our Lord, I have also many times closed off my heart, because i am so tired of being hurt, yet we must learn to stand undefended if we are to be conformed to His Image, Love and blessings, I will hurt and share your burden, "share one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ" I am so grateful you found me on livejournal. Blessings to my sister in Christ, Melody

Beautiful and haunting. Praise our God that we can trust Him to gently pierce the armour we often set around our heats. Praise Him that He is also able to protect and nurture as we open our hearts to His will. P
