“Image of God” You’re not made in God’s image like the rest of us, you’re synonymous to God. I worship you er’day, I question my existence when I’m without you. I close my eyes to talk to God, I open my eyes & you’re right there. I would rather not be than be without you. You carry my cross & still ask me if I’m comfortable. You make life mean more than it should. Cuz I have you I feel sorry for everyone else. My smiles, tears, laughter, shame, sorrows, you’ve seen it all. I couldn’t be more human with you. Mount Everest wouldn’t get me as high as you do, with you I’ve reached my peak. These designer jackets couldn’t warm me up like you do, when your body’s close to mine I don’t need no blankets. Talk about expensive things, your laughter is my most valuable possessions. Your presence is the best gift I can ever ask for, I’m helpless without you. Home isn’t the four corners of this bedroom, it’s me & you together. Peace isn’t just the absence of war, it’s me & you loving & obsessing over each other.
“The Forbidden Fruit” Tell God I’ve eaten from the forbidden fruit. Now, my eyes are finally opened & I can see what you’ve been trying to hide from me. I’ve sinned cuz I’ve seen you. Tell me what knowledge is greater, I’ve study your true form. My eyes have captured your sexiness & I can’t think of anything else. My lips have tasted your sweetness, now my tastebuds fail me. My pen has experienced your divinity, there’s nothing more intriguing to write about. My reality is you, my dreams don’t fascinate me no more. Tell God I’ve seen it all. The vast ocean, it’s in how wide your legs spread. The infinite universe, it’s in how open minded you are. The scotching sun, your body’s always on fire when I stare. The wondrous sky, it’s all in you. Tell God I’ve seen it all. Your body is the map to Heaven, I have to explore every part of it to find my way back home.
“Let there be Light” We hate & fear the dark cuz we hate the truth & fear the unknown but Darkness was here first, Light is the intruder. Darkness was the first & brightest of all creation, the world was formed from its making, the existence of darkness gave purpose & essence to light which gave reason & meaning to other creations but light gets all the glory. So you get why darkness can’t stand light, but the truth is they’re lovers, beautiful tragic lovers. Darkness is constantly intrigued by Light’s ability to give beauty & life to everything it was made to hide & demean, while Light is astonished by Darkness’s ability to still have half of eternity no matter how bright it shines. Like Romeo & Juliet, they’re the opposite of one another but they’re exactly the same. They both need each other for glory, existence & purpose yet they don’t want each other cuz they know they can’t have each other cuz coming together would kill ‘em both & end their purpose. It’s a beautiful tragedy. “Tragic” cuz they yearn for each other, as the day can’t wait for the night to show up & undress itself while it sits & watches from afar wishing it could have a glimpse of the night’s beauty while the night looks forward to the day sweeping it off its feet with its sunrise, but they can’t have each other. “Beautiful” cuz they’re both the reason for each other’s existence & without one the other wouldn’t have glory or any purpose. Light is beautiful but intrusive cuz out of nowhere it was formed to compete with Darkness & demean its relevance. Darkness is also beautiful but no one gets to see, its guarded, sad & distructive cuz it suffers from the heartbreak of God’s making of Light.
“The Garden of Eden” You’re not an afterthought. You’re God’s initial intention. Everything created before you needed something to compliment it; an afterthought. The heavens needed the angels, the day needed the sun, the night needed the moon, the ocean needed sea creatures, the sky needed birds, the vegetation needed someone to eat them, the animals needed someone to name them, the first man needed a companion; you, you needed nothing but what was already made. God made it all for you as a birthday present, what compliments & complements you is God. You’re the last piece that cements it all. You’re not made from the first man’s rib, don’t let men belittle you, God had to take a part of Adam just to make you a little more human cuz the plan was to make you just like God. Eden is a love letter to you. You’re the “Garden” of Eden; the light in the dark, cuz out of you the rest of the world is created.
