The desire to be desired consumes me.

I am filled with emptiness.

Treasure me, covet me, protect me.

Hold me, caress me, desire me.

It is never enough.

I am being consumed from the inside out.

This is what starvation is.

 

Lord, ease my pain.

No, don’t. It hurts so good.

Take this away from me; I don’ t want it.

I want, I need to feed this flame.

It will burn me up. It is a cancer in my soul.

Let me burn. Let me die.

Savior forgive me! I want to follow you.

I want to do it on my own.

I can’t live with this.

I can’t live without this.

God, come near.

Stay away.

Jesus.

 

"Never will I leave you. Never will I forsake you.

I love you, my precious child."
