Poem: Faith's Alchemy

By bhmcintosh | bhmcintosh | 24 May 2019

Sometimes the only thing that separates two hearts is a leap of faith...


Faith's Alchemy

I hope I'm right, I'd love to be,
Not wrong about your subtlety,
Mistaking all the signs I think I see,
Believing that they're meant for me.

Please forgive my density,
I'm not accomplished at telepathy,
Nor have I skill at empathy,
Therefore I ask you for some sympathy.

Can what I'm feeling inwardly,
Be something more than fantasy,
Be something that could powerfully,
Connect our hearts, eventually?

I could be wrong, so utterly,
But I want to take a chance to be,
Transformed by faith's grand alchemy,
And hope you feel the same as me.
