Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

That when the wicked sprouted up like grass,
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed
forevermore.

-Psalm 92:7-
Don't operate under what I think
I think I am,
Operate under who He says
I am.
Always live in the Truth.

Hope holds out until even the darkness covers it,
And even then,
it's always looking for that ray of light
to ride in.

Something found...

The Sun also glided over the moon
on that September day
Somewhere between here and now it landed
Dancing through the stars
to meet the face of delight
The Sun also soared
along the coast of Aphrodite's birth
Touching the spray of the ocean's waves
Breathing the coolness of the salty sea
Once more it began
across the expanse
Never wondering where it might end,
Nor looking where it began

What every princess wants to hear

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Just like a knight in shining armor
From a long time ago
Just in time I will save the day
Take you to my castle far away

I am a man who will fight for your honor

Change is possible (or Life Moves, whichever you choose)

I'm so tired of trying to keep on going, when I barely have enough strength
to get me through my next breath. I don't see the point and I'm too tired to care.
I've exhausted myself trying to attain something I'm not quite sure I even want.
What's the point, anyways? It's so mundane and without a point.
I have no enthusiasm for it anymore. I'm so close to quitting and giving up.
It means absolutely nothing to me right now.
I'm just so tired.
I miss life...I miss...

This is where I want to be again...

- Intoxicating You are to me - Illuminating You are to see - Truly breathtaking You are to breathe - Sending my head spinning You are, You see - And I've lost my mind, I'm sure to find - Need to apologize for my lack of inhibition, for my belligerent condition - But with You this near I'm dizzy - Inebriating You are to me - Completely captivating You are to see - Sending my world spinning You are, You see - And now I find a blurry line here between You and I - Raise the cup, drink 'til I'm full - Sing 'til I can't, 'til my voice is gone - And my head is spinning - A illuminating You are to see - Truly breathtaking You are to breathe - Sending my head spinning You are, You see - And now I find a blurry line here between you and I - Raise the cup, drink 'til I'm full - Sing 'til I can't, 'til my voice is gone - And my head is spinning dizzy - If I'm out of my mind it's You, You - 'Cause I'm crazy in love with You, You - Inebriated by You, You - 'Cause I'm head over heels with You, You -
-David Crowder-

An intimate reflection

Sadly, the eyes are closing
the feeling of something lost has come
The mask is discarded,
the beauty remains.
Purity in the marred?
Hope in the muddy defeat?
'O, save me now!' she cries.

Her pain echoes throughout her presence
radiating off walls and trees, I can feel it in my chest;
'Someone, please' is all her eyes can say,
and she smiles
knowing...
knowing that she is lost and craves
what she says she hates and doesn't need

Oh, my child, how I cry for you
knowing that your soul is so precious
knowing that your smile is pained
knowing that you, too scared to cry out,
are looking for the hands to save you
Remove the dark circles 'round your eyes
You're beautiful, let someone see you

You are the blooming one;
your name designates it so
One day, I pray, you will let go of what entangles you
to open your arms
And I pray that when your rescuer comes
you will only let him in
Open you petals and delight to live.

Oh, the sweetness of time gone by.

The beauty of simply sitting in your presence. Even if it is only whatever, sweet it is still and I would do it a thousand times more just so I could say I know you.

Yes, a young princess am I, but not so young to not know the touch of you, the sweetest desire of my heart. Oh, you make my joy complete! You touch the depths of my soul and I am changed. My heart is yours forevermore. There's no returning it, you hold it in piece.

Oh my valiant prince! You are so much more than valiant, you are all conquering, ever-saving, and the only one to deliver me. You are my strong tower, my refuge, and my deliverer. It is you that my hand trusts to steady me.

Oh my prince, my lord, my heart burns for you wishing to see you yet again, though we only left moments ago.
