First things first

First unwrap my soul
It is where you find my desire
Unwrap my mind
Ignite a fire
To only unwrap my flesh
Is to sink us both in mire

 

dVerse prompt is to explore identity and desire. I am adding another here.

Who I Am

I identify with Him
And everything He says is who I am
I identify with Him
My desire is towards Him and His plan
When He unwraps my soul
In naked light
Though it may frighten me
He holds me tight
And all that I believe
Is brought to light
Exposing all the lies
Shadows hide

My heart is deeper than this flesh can hold
Though blood that pumps is worth much more than gold
Surgeon’s tools can only fix what’s seen
Christ knows my heart
And reaches far beyond and in between
The fragments of a torn and ravaged dream

Whatever you may tell me who you be
I am convinced of my own identity
In that place alone I am free

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    If desire is only in the flesh, its a flash and then its gone.

    Your second poem is very spiritual and reveals a deep connection with the Divine Love.
