A Dialogue Between Love & Beloved

Love, why are you so hard to find?
Beloved, why do you look so hard for me when I am with you?
Love, if you are with me, why must I cry out to you before you do anything?
Beloved, have you ever asked me to do something, that I did not do?
Love, if you will help me, why do you take so long to come?
Beloved, remember what happened has happened when I came before?
Love, but you didn’t do what I expected you to!
Beloved, nor did you honor me as Love.
If you are Love, why did you not defend me?
Did you listen to what I had said?
I submitted to you already, Love, and you did nothing to save me from harm!
Did I not suffer with you?
But why must I suffer?
Why do you make me suffer?
Love, I hate you!
Beloved, you are my only beloved.
I will abandon you!
I hate divorce.
I curse you, Love!
And so Love was rejected. The life of Love was spilled out and spread through all the earth, so great was the life of Love. After many years, Love invited the Beloved home, and kept her chaste in his Castle. At last, she will cry out, in the midst of her enemies:
Love, I need you I cannot live another Day without You!
And Love will meet her. What a rapturous moment that will be, when Love and Beloved shall meet and all the earth shall come together to celebrate their love forever. Words cannot describe such joy, so I will leave you to dream with me of such glory.

Inheritance

(Based on reflections on our inheritance in Christ which is mentioned in Paul’s letters and the gospels and my own yearning for “something more.”)

I long for an infinite treasure
I can’t even start to measure.
Something yet to dawn and come,
More sure than death has ever won
Against our mortal, human flesh.
Eternal life will never mesh
with gaining stuff when others lose.
I want to rest, but cannot snooze
when I worry about lost love.
My hands now shake, though I wear gloves,
And it is warm around about.
My heart’s soul cries, I want to shout:
with many friends, I remain alone.
So inwardly, I start to groan,
and I am burdened with heartfelt pain.
In my global quest, what have I gained?
“Lord, hear me as I sob and cry!
And if You answer, here am I.
Provide fresh joy and hope and grace
that I might know and see your face.”
God’s Comfort comes despite my self,
And thus I’ve found that treasured wealth.
A peace the world never knew
I have God’s Love: the Lord is True.
This Gift is not for only me:
God gives to all who ask, He’s Free!
I hope these words expand your view:
Christ Jesus came for me and you.
