Feeding empty with fullness
Indulgence aside
Tasting weakness
Shattering pride

Spiritual gasping
Ironic self care
Inhaling mercy
Exhaling prayer

Hunger for knowing
Beyond taste’s delight
Divine craving
Soul’s appetite

Love’s yoke of longing
Dross churning within
Fiery crucible burning
Foisting heaven on sin

Deer panting for water
Soul feasting on God
Reveals crucified power
True authority’s Rod
