Writer's Block

I want to write you a song
I want to give you the melody the angels sing
And join in with my own harmony
To sing over you in the middle of your dark night
To get stuck in your head when you've forgotten me

I want to write you the words
That my very soul cries out inside my always-crashing mind
The expressions of a fallen saint
The confessions of a broken-down woman
As a token penny for your own shy thoughts

But these are not mine to give you
So I burn them as my incense
In this inner sanctuary of my heart
So God can sing His song to you instead
Which is the far better thing... the healing
