An Apologia

Am I delirious?
Or this a thought spurious?
You seem so distant.
So distant, I seek thee from a distance. 
When did you leave?
I heard not the door shut.
Why did you leave?
Knowing the gamut
Of my feelings demented.

Was it so piteous?
Could you not forgive my insipience?
You seem so far.
So far, I seek thee from afar.
When did you leave?
I felt not the distance.
Why did you leave?
I may have lacked persistence
But you could have resisted.

Am I mistaken?
Why is my solace taken?
You seem so new.
So new, I need to know you anew.
When did you leave?
It feels like an abyss around.
Why did you leave?
Too lost to be found.
Bashing my spirit to the ground.

When did you leave?
Why did you leave?
Oh!When did you leave?
Oh!Why did you leave?
Oh! Precious poetry!
Why can’t I write thee?
Won’t you come back to me?


Nothing but a recipient of Christ's grace. I am a young doctor and I use this space to find meaning in the bedlam of my thoughts. My blog might resonate with the screams of a young adult finding her place in life, the stench of hospital corridors, images of the many people who intrigue me and the lessons my Saviour Jesus teaches me.
