Your kindly indulgence

Your kindly indulgence                                                                                    

At your suggestion, I've been calling on You –
entreaty, praise, repetition of Your name

all the while longing for a love
to seal my lips, steal my tongue,

leave me rifled and speechless
by the side of the road.

Every now and then, I require
a good rough and tumble.

Feel like I need a dressing down,
escorted from the building,

certain aspects, presumptions
reoriented or removed entirely.

O Lord, I await 
Your kindly indulgence.

O child of God, you ignore your Beloved
for long periods and then crave His attention.
