5+2 efforts

Religion has been nothing but a complex language,
A puzzle that never gets solved,
In the folds of my grey matter,
A mosaic with lots of mystery pieces,
A mortar of rules

There’s nothing my brain detests more
Than figures that never add up,
Or records of extraordinary events,
That stare nature in the eye and disobey her
Yet I find myself in their midst

All I know is we sniffed your mist,
The broken, sick and lost,
All we want is to get fixed,
And from the smell of what I’ve heard,
I knew you would quench,
The desert of a thirst we had

I had a hunch about our lunch
The idea of you feeding us,
These swam of crowd
But not with the 5 loaves and 2 fishes
Mother wrapped in case I grew hungry

You reminded me of math class
Another world of confusion I melt into,
But right there in my very presence
You made integration simple
5+2 equaled 5000 and 12

That day, I went home
With waves wrapped around my hairs,
All He needs is my little to make big
All He needs is my life to make it worth it

The call

I stood in front of him and we were having a nice conversation.

We talked,laughed,smiled and talked again.

I saw the crowd staring at us but i wasn’t moved at all by the unpleasant looks they gave.

I just wished nothing would bring an interruption to our conversation.

I wished we could go and go without running out of words.

I wished we could keep talking,laughing and smiling and just keep the cycle going.

Suddenly,i realized that i wasn’t comfortable standing and having a nice conversation, so i decided to sit next to him.

And again i wasn’t comfortable,so i decided to draw closer till my shoulder rubbed against his.

I couldn’t understand this feeling.

There was something in my heart that needed a fill-in.

Closer and closer i moved till my head rested on the comfort of his chest.

I could hear his heartbeat per minute and each one saying how truely he loves me.

I could hear his deepest thought; abide in me and I in you..

It became apparent that my hunger was to know him each day and know him more
