To Ekklesia , My beloved.

It was love at first sight! You lay in ashes dejected, I could see the marks on you face. You flinched when I held your wrist, bruised with chains. Oh, I was sick of love! I called you to come away with me, but you believed him that you were not worthy of me. Oh Tirzah,…

Out with the Old … In with the New

At the sound of the clock at midnight, 31st December I'd been taught like the others dance, sing, release the fireworks!
