You are the shade scarlet

Washed my soul —

Clean; I’m guileful — undo me. 

——

Mercy flowed graceful ocean tides, 

Could’ve drowned but —

Your love tethered us together. 

—–

All I want and need, 

Found in arms

Stronger –where my sins release. 

—–

God pray I, surround me, 

Never let me–

Stray; your mercy it abounds. 

——

Wrap me in arms of love

Engage my spirit, 

Ever-giving, yours forever remain.

Bad girls get things done, get what they want. 

Girls with stone hearts, don’t hear mean taunts, 

They’re invincible, wild; know how to flaunt. 

You won’t get past their walls, their dauntless. 

——

A little crack formed, stone heart releasing, 

Her emotions unceasing —

Guilt claws inside of her, has no peace. 

Demons of her past, screaming though deceased. 

——

Raw heart brought forth, your her only love; 

Needs to be redeemed –a sinner smudged

Thoughtless before; she needs her beloved. 

Your criminal, she needs kid gloves. 

—–

Tell her what to do and how to act now, 

Not to be a defiant girl, too proud. 

Forgive her drunken haze –parties loud, 

Redeem your Criminal right now. 

Redeem your Criminal right now.
