magnify.

the cracks in the walls are there
to remind us
of how close we always are
to breaking.

( open wounds don’t heal easily. )

drive a nail through my skinΒ β€”
i’ll count it as a welcome battle scar;
i’ll have it as a stinging reminder.

( what story shall i tell? )

once we fall,
we will truly experience
the world.

entangle me
in your coarse embrace.

( choke me with your love. )

[ i meant for these four short poems to be somewhat connected. the title ‘magnify’ was chosen because, well, the pictures were taken using a magnifying lens. secondly, the theme was ‘magnifying’ the flaws of human nature. at least, that’s how i wrote it; maybe you had a different interpretation ( ah, the beauty of poetry. )

the first magnifies weaknesses in our strengths. the second and last, worldly love. the third speaks for itself when you connect it with the picture, but i hope it reminded you of this:Β do not love the world. ( 1 john 2:15 – 17 ) ]
