jacob's river

all i wanted

was to cross a river

but you stand there, in the way,

and I cannot be unmoved. 

so i lift my hand

and you lift your voice

and my heart has bled

as my eyes searched your words

as my mind tried to comprehend.

Darkness has masked your face

midnight's dew has masked my tears

but i stay

and you stay

and i plead for your answers

                 (tell me you're not the one you appear to be).

the night is nearly over

i tire of my resisting

i'll take defeat

at least strike my hip

at least let me know

i've been wrestling with you.
