I wrote this poem with Tofunmi on the 31st of July 2013. Do enjoy!
Ours is a sweltering passion
A love that chases relentlessly,
Unfettered by fear nor clouded by doubts.
Its fluidity is unfazed by opposition
He chases me through the dusty dunes of despair,
Past the raging rivers of sin
Into the mud of despondency
He longs for me and thus He pursues me
He chases, and chases me still.
His gaze mixed with faith and grace
Fixed on me as I dive into the ocean of uncertainty
I gulped and gulped more of its salty content
I was not afloat;
I was deeply submerged in my mess
But He was watching, I thought.
Why wouldn’t He reach out,
Reach for His lover.
He wouldn’t watch me drown, would He?
“Lord, fix me. Please!” I cried.
Then His hands reached for me
I sensed Him, his eyes fixed on me
And then just what I needed!
His spirit within me quickened my spirit
Love whispered into my being
The caress of His words against my heart:
‘He who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’
