    Listen..that's all.


    ("Jesus replied, 'Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them. We will come to them and make our home with them.'" John 14:23)

    She woke up and thought she would write some words
    to the one person she had refused her words for
    five years and more. And then the words were only
    the sudden hope of manufactured miracles,
    the quick passing of canned words strengthened by seeing

    All in a dream.

    While he had suffered for seven years, the pain building
    like a slow ascent up a Mexican pyramid, or the steep hills
    you hike
    that look just like a one short jaunt until sightlines break the ridge
    to see
    more and more hills ahead and in your periphery. More hills that
    eventually end upon a plateau of pain; a restless place where

    Each day drowns you underneath its angry intent of
    shoving every thought out of a once active brain,
    and your habits are soggy and sweat from the energy consumed
    attempting to beat back welding pen that has engraved "pain"
    upon every movement of your body.

    But she (who could challenge her motives) merely sent a "word"
    that dreamed up a prophetic announcement that all he pain would
    be finished soon.

    And he would like an ear, for she would not bear to hear, in a month
    or a year,
    that the season had remained, the pain still plunging him helplessly
    beyond anyone's comprehension

    Except God's alone.
