Poetry - "Holding Onto Hope"

"Holding Onto Hope"

Contemplating echoes
Pressing thru my tears
Holding onto hope
Bearing thru my fears
Removing clothes within
Having different skin
Wanting to run away
Never return again
Watching for a moment
A twinkle of my eye
When all the changes
Take me by surprise
Overturning memories
Sifting thru the lines

Poetry titled, "Waking Up"

"Waking Up"

A glimmer of perfect light
With hues of sapphires and gold
Words that were gently spoken
Of echoes through the night
I wondered in the shadows
Fiery coals burning within
The keys were holding open
A place I'd never been
I turned for an instant
Time seemed to stand still
A pondering this deep moment
I shivered from the chill
The likeness of appearance
I could never see or feel
Then the dream went silent
I pulled back the veil
I awakened from yesterday
Into a dreamy spill

Poetry "A Stun Of Interference"

"A Stun Of Interference"

Below the surface
Subjective thoughts
Arising within
Overturning reasonings
A capture of light
Memberings quickening
I hold on tight
To My Rock
My Salvation
Mine Great King
Inner soul delights
I breathe again
Inspiring flavors
Of noble delights
Embracing my shadows
Modifying to life

Poetry called "Conscious Recovery"

You left me alone
I waited in the dark
Hues of mystery told
Beholding the heart
A turbulent breaking
The rambling overload
Seasons come and gone
Years lost among range
Constant undirected plans
Ceased overthrown pains
A cloak of darkness
Off the norm and old
Flickering sand in glass
Time was melting slow
Remounting to the wind
Yet now stronger tuned
Amist the overflowings
Days of morning dews
Awakened once again
Still planless yearning
Ageless remembering you

Why Woundest Thou My Soul Poetry

Why Woundest Thou My Soul
By Tonya Ashe

Why woundest thou my soul?
Your constant quiet inner whispers
Woundest thou my soul
So quietly I await thee
Hidden deep inside
Yet you ignore me
And I'm wounded again
Why woundest thou my soul?
Can't you move toward me?
Can't you look my way?
Why doest thou ignore me?
Why won't you stay?
So gently I await thee
Please stay anyways
Stop listenening inner voices
To the lies and betrays
Listen to me gently
to the Words of my Heart
Please stay anyways
I need you so desperately
Gently my heart says
Please stay Anyways
Cuts so deep
Like a wounding knife blade
The armor is pierced
Here I gently lay
Can't you see me?
Underneath the raging rains
Feeling as a torrential sea
Merciless torments
Seeing my pains
Can't you see the forever?
My heart awaiting you inside
Hurting... I'm bleeding
Yet here comes another storm
Torrential piercings
I bareth for you
Again and again
Why can't thou seest me?
Underneath all this pain
Why tormentest thou my soul?
Please Stay!

This poem is about what a woman goes through when in an torrential relationship. If you have been abused then you will truly understand it.

Oh how I adore You
So missing Your Divine touch
Re-Bliss my inner shadows
Take back what is Yours Alone
Consume me in Thine Love
Complete my incompleteness
For I am incomplete without You
You are my Rock of Strength
My heart fully leans upon
Needing Your Divine Love
Desperate for Your Holy Touch
Caress my Spirit with Thine Grace
Draw me into You
Draw me unto You
Consume me in Thine Love

Wash away the debris
of life's violence again
giving me renewed hope 
and strength to face the day
let not time slip anymore away
Say you love me and pull me
nearer cleansing all away, 
consuming my soul's need and desire
for thee; thus tis time forever stay. 
Never abandon never no more, 
for I live to love thee, 
my true love forevermore.

God Can See Our Hearts

He Sees My Heart

God can see our heart.
He knows every intent of even every intention. He knows even the things we try to hide from others around us and the world. He sees it all. He knows it all. God knows me! God lives in me! And I belong unto The Lord Most High Almighty God. My heart is already like a transparent street of gold before Him. He knows every detail and secret part. He knows every secret I have. He knows every secret I've kept and every one I may have not kept. The Lord Most High and Mighty knows me and He has chosen to love me anyway. He knows every trial I've faced. And He knows every tear that has fallen from mine eyes.... He knows me!
Every part of light... He sees! Every part of dark... He sees! Nothing is hidden from Him! He Knows Everything! God lives in me and I am His own! I have chosen Him and He has chosen me!
I love Him for Who He is and what He stands for... His righteousness and ways; His laws, ordinances and precepts.
The Most High And Mighty is Amazing. He is Awesome! He Is!
I Love You Lord!

Lifting Up Unto Thee

Lifting Up To You

Oil Painting

Lifting Up Unto Thee

The storm comes
Yet I cease to be still
I slowly climb
To You my Love
I gasp for breath
From the distress
And struggle to gain
Yet affliction is nothing
To a moment with You
Lifting my heart to view
To catch a glimpse of You
Quickly to and fro
I mesmerize the rows
Of tranquil stated time
Of glistening light
The taste of sweet wine
I yearn so deeply within
To feel and know again
A passionate kiss of Love
An heavenly rose for You
Capturing a state of growth
I feel a secluded note
Suddenly taken away
My remembrance of the day
How fair You are to me
Like a flutter in the rain
A dash of purity in salt
Shake upon my soul
Lifting me up to You
The struggle melts away
Passion flowing my way
Once again.... I'm in Love
With my Love, My Dove
My Beloved King
He purges me in kindness
That He has shown to me
Speak my Sweet Savour
My Divine Flame of Fire
Fill me with Thine Favour
Flavour me with Thine salt
Come quickly lest forever
Becomes only thy thought
