The Paradox of Love

I drink and still I want more

I eat and still I want more

The more I stay with you the more my soul longs for you

I come and so inebriated stays

I taste of you and this fills me up

Yet leaves me more needy than before

In this the more I eat the more I hunger

This the paradox of love



It’s the search of experience

It’s the pursuit of the divine treasure chest

The exploration of the unceasing wonderful glories

It’s the drinking from the fountain and being filled still wanting more

It’s the beginning of perfection with no knowledge of the end

A desire to be with the one I was made for is my drive now

My heart aches for Him I have come to love

This the paradox of love




I behold you and am transformed

I sit still right in your feet and feed on you

The more I draw the more I desperate for more

The more I come the more I know I need

In this the more I have the more I want

This the paradox of love



I stay near because there my beloved is

There my beloved quenches my thirst

My soul not too easily satisfied but this I know He loves

I have in me the capacity to love Him

Made in his image he reaches out and I look up

Was not always that way

Once rebirthed my soul found home

As life came inside me again

I live because he in me as life

He quenches the unceasing thirst

This the paradox of love



You found me I found you and still there is pursuit

I search because I will find something glorious and new in you

I search because you quench all the thirst in me

I search because I am taken by who you are

You make me weak in a lot of way the good kinda weak

And I know I want to be stuck there forever

I hurt just to be with you

This the paradox of love


I am desperately walking to you

I agonize to be with you

I have tasted of your living bread

And still long to feast on you

Never having my fill

I take and eat but still take and take

This the paradox of love



My soul full of desire I need you

To see you

To hear you

To know you

I come after you even as I have you

Don get it wrong, am satisfied but am not satisfied

This the paradox of love



I agonize within as a seeker

Meet me at your side

For deep calls to deep

When I am praising as a finder

And losing all does not count

For all is nothing in having you

To have you is to win

So I follow hard after you even when I find

For this the paradox of love

As usual, your poetry is a wonder, a good wonder that captures the emotions of my heart too.

Keep writing and may God continue to fill our hunger and thirst for Him even as we thirst and hunger for more and more and still more of Him.

Keep it up gal. I’m good glad I know you. You’re a treasure in God’s Family
