Katelin Taylor Poems
The Space Between
I hope you're enjoying the view from up there Better than me, living life - not a care Least of all me, far too late I found out I was the space between rain and the drought.
House Of Cards
What happened to your stupid little house of cards? That thing you worked so hard to build so delicately All it took was one good blow To break the barriers of your paper castle
Father Forgive Them
"Father, forgive them! " Christ cried out from the cross They mocked His name and pierced His side, and yet He loved them, lost He died for those who hated Him, beginning to the end Because they need a savior, and He wants to be their friend.
I'D Be Yours
I'd be yours in a second if you'd come around And I'd wait forever if you made the sound I'd ask you no questions and tell you no lies For I see my future when I see your eyes.
To God Be The Glory
To God be the glory my heartbroken tears To Him be the praise for my worries and fears For each little thing that is good in me go The glory to God, for I am below.
I have no muse now. No lover to sing The anger is gone, and now it's just me The beautiful train wreck, the fiery dart The lonely, the healing, the ruin become art.
Adding To My Debt
Christ’s blood has freed me from the bondage of sin And yet I return to its chains once again Ignoring the debt I could never repay I add to it fervently, day after day.
Praise The Tears
I think I'm going to be okay Inch by inch, day by day My heart's been broken times before The pieces strengthened in my core.
I Never Did Tell You
I had a lifetime to tell you I loved you, And yet when your life was all through You took your last breath on this earth and I cried For I doubted that you really knew.
Like brick through a glass door I break every time I shatter, I crumble I scream and I cry
Without you I'll make it, without you survive Without you I'll always be happy and thrive Without you, tomorrow will be a good day Without you is better, I'm sorry to say.
Suddenly my future looks so close What happened to Barbies and dress-up clothes? Just yesterday I was a girl in school Today I've a job in the great big world.
Now you're just another verse I wrote Another dream gone down in smoke Another page I threw away Another price I had to pay.
You conned me, you liar You sick little cheat You fake slab of excrement You deplorable creep
Praise The Tears
I think I'm going to be okay
Inch by inch, day by day
My heart's been broken times before
The pieces strengthened in my core.
I think that I will be alright
Although I'm crying through this plight
My tears are friends to me by now
They comfort me as they fall down.
