Bona fide…

Can you be with her darkness; the dragons… the poisonous venom perusing through her being… The neatly braided thorns encasing her heart like barbed wire; ready to pierce any brazen soul who dare to peer inside… Can you manage that depth of intimacy?… Can you withstand her dark and Love her unconditionally? Will you hold her when the sting becomes unbearable and the wound needs cleansing? When the demons dance and she vomits ash?… Will you stand with her in the cesspools of hell as she battles the devils attempt to numb her heart and dine on her Spirit?…Will you continue to hold her hand as she drowns in her own unfathomable depths choking on the darkest night as she falls?… Will you continue to be by her side when she becomes unrecognizable?… When she rises?… When the warrior that lives within her begins to breathe?…

  1. Only love is strong enough to stand the darkness of another’s soul…and presevere as love. Once again you had me choked up, especially when listening to the song while reading. We all want this kind of love. I beat my heart in all its failures having recognized the difference between how only God can love and our lack as fallible people. The only worthy goal is to love like this that renders the darkness mute. A journey indeed.
