Heartstrings

Chord C


A heart once bound
wrapped with cords
unholy
soul to soul connections
never prompted
by the Father
is breaking free.

Each string
as it snaps, tears
calls out in wails unique
a song discordant
too long overdue.

Tie me then
only to You
pull the strings
direct my steps
and let this heart
all at once
healed
shout
not in pain
but words of praise
and glorious love.

Draw me still
and yet again
closer
with each gentle tug
till all I am
is all You Are
hearts united
now restrung.



Linking up at Jason's Connecting to Impact where the Warriors are writing about heartstrings




and joining others at One Stop Poetry for this weeks One Shot.

"Draw me still and yet again closer"
In true love, as God intends, it feels like one can never be "close" enough! You captured that sentiment beautifully. Thanks for posting :)
