A Soul’s Longing


Empty.

Waiting. Wanting.

Ready to be filled up.

Aching for something…someone

Absent of human form

Exceeding my physical reach.

 

Blocks. Desperation.

Struggling, reaching

Unable to grasp, to go beyond

To get within

The castle of my soul.

 

Dark night?

I don’t know.

Tears beg to come, but don’t.

Words begin to form–

Only to fall apart again.

 

Empty, hungry.

Frenzy building beneath the surface.

What is it?

Holding me here….

Blocked, just outside the veil.

 

Why can’t I enter?

I hear the call, and then it’s gone.

How do I get from here to there?

What is the next step to take?

I can’t see it nor feel it.

 

What is here to guide my way?

I’m asking…pleading.

Come to me.

 

Let me feel you in every pore of my being

Taste your sweetness lingering on my lips

Hear you with the ears of my heart

Know you absent of words spoken aloud

See you again behind the lids of my eyes.

 

Let me know it’s you

I long for you.

Be with me.

 

This is the cry of my soul,

The ache in my heart–

The restlessness of my being.

Come to me

As though we are one.

 

I open myself to you….

Ready, willing, surrendering

Into the grace of your presence.

 

Amen.

  1. Divine discontent.

    That’s what I call this…place…that you just wrote about so beautifully, Jackie. It’s at once both a scary and an exciting place to be, like standing on the edge of a cliff.

    The older I get, the more I realize that how few answers I really have. But I do know this. There are certain prayers that always – always! – get answered. Maybe not immediately. Maybe not in the timing that we would most desire it. But always.

    This is one of them.

    Praying with you. xox

  2. While I was reading it I was like “Wow, this is so deep and from the heart” and I felt as thought much of it was my own words in quiet alone moments, begging for answers. Thank you so much for sharing it here. It’s beautiful.
    I’m thinking I will pour out some similar things into writing, but I’m not brave enough to publish it, yet 🙂

  3. I tagged this ‘no comfort zone’ because it wasn’t at all easy to share something that at times, felt so very intimate and Divinely sensual. And yet, there is something that rises up beyond my human mind and begs for such expression. So with a humble heart, I’m sharing. Receive it gently, my friends. xoxo

      1. HUMAN IN DIVINE ESSENCE
        DIVINITY IN HUMAN WORDS —- 🙂 I WROTE A WORDY RESPONSE – BUT – I GUESS ALL THAT WAS “NEEDED ” WAS …….THE ABOVE…..

        ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE SONGS…AND A BEAUTIFUL RENDITION I’VE NOT HEARD BEFORE.

        IT FEELS SO APPROPRIATE….ALIGNS WITH THE SPACE IN MY SOUL THAT SHARED THESE WORDS.

        THANK YOU, CAT. I LOVE YOU…FOR SEEING ME SO CLEARLY.
        YOU INSPIRE ME TO LET THESE VERY PROTECTED SPACES BEGIN TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

          1. “THE REWARD IS TRUTH ”
            ….OUR LIFE WILL MOVE FASTER ………”
            …….CM…..

            PROOF …….:) LIFE IS MOVING FASTER ———- WHY ?
            BECAUSE GRACE HAS SEEPED INTO THE WALLS OF MY HEART – AND I AM NOT INTERESTED IN “LACK ”
            ONLY FULLNESS – AND THE BEAUTY AND REALITY OF FORGIVENESS AND TRUTH XO

    1. Certainly you rose to the challenge of the no comfort zone. This is the most deeply moving writing Jackie. I’m lost for words in the profound experience of what you shared. You are love and you are loved. Anam Cara ❤ So so beautiful in every raw, vulnerable whispered word from your heart. Always enhancing my journey, challenging me and opening out all that is mirrored. Thank you.

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
