2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

your eyes require so much,
delving deeper into my soul
than even i dare to go.
afraid of slipping off of the
stepping stones, i wait on the shore.
staring after you, your
child-like body bouncing,
effortlessly moving from one
to another.
a head swivel. eyes lock.
magnetic attraction drawing me
across the stones.
you break the connection
in order to take your final
leap. i wait for you to glance back,
to help me cross
this final terrain, but
you don’t. your eyes
were fulfilled. i’m left, stranded,
halfway across the river,
slipping further away.

There's always someone who you follow around like a lost-puppy, theat one person who you see everyday and every. tiny. microscopic. thing that they do is beautiful to you. This is my testimony to that person.
