She knows what they're thinking. She can see it in their eyes. They see no flaws. No imperfections. No failure. They see a sweet girl; one with a kind heart and compassion for others. They see a 'good little Christian' who tries her hardest in every situation.
And apparently she's better than them. Because that's what counts, right? An A+ for attempt.
Sometimes she sees herself as they see her. And it breaks her heart. Because she knows it's a lie.
She hides it well. But she has destroyed her temple too.
She has broken down doors; shattered windows; tracked mud and dirt and grime. She has allowed mold and mildew to seep into the cracks and creep along the walls. She's aware that she caused the heavy smell of sour rot which permeates the darkness.
There is nothing redeeming about what she's done. And she knows it.
On some days she closes the door and locks it with a rusty key. There are times when she attempts to scrub the grime off the walls, though it inevitably grows back four

My flesh
is weak;
a can of tin
I run.
I hide.
Concede defeat;
He stands.
He speaks.
He works through me;
My spirit

Find Your Foundation, Find Your Wings
Take heed of this ground
On which you stand
This solid bedrock
This steady land
Take captive each thought
Let wisdom safely guide
She is there when you seek
Firm and sure by your side
Feel the whisper of wind
Between feathers so light
Defy your cold boundaries
Take joy in your flight
Feel His pure spirit
Filling your soul
The pulse of new life
In a heart made of coal
Burrow strong roots
Within His foundation
Spread wide golden wings
Rejoice in salvation

Everything you said to me
Every time we touched
Every moment we spent together
They are nothing more than memories
These are the ones I keep
Never again to be a reality
The ones I cling to on rainy days
All forgiven, yet not forgotten
I turn these pages slowly
As memory follows memory
I see the passing of the years
Through the eyes of one lost in love
Can you see us in May, two years past
When you first realized you loved me?
Then in August, when we lay under the stars
and the planet Venus became a memory to cherish
What about that October?
We shared our very first kiss
You were so confident, I so naïve
A new experience that will forever be my first
And look at May of last year!
My senior prom, you in a tux and me in a dress
Feeling like a fairy tale princess
and wanting that love to stay forever.
And then that dark pain, I think in June (I tried so hard to forget)
I could not keep from screaming, though you tried to console me
My world collapsed that day; I broke into pieces
