The transparent touch of triumph

If your heart
Is untouchable,
Your life will be

Don’t live without
The invisible touch
That you feel within
And not on your skin.

The invisible touch
Of a compassionate word
Can heal a heart
That’s disturbed.

The touch,
That can make
Your soul
Restored and whole,
Isn’t be felt
By the body.

An untouched heart
Has a lonely heart beat
That pumps blood
But is incomplete.

There’s an invisible touch
Inside me
That ignites triumph
And makes me transparent.

People can walk
Arm in arm
And still be
Out of touch
With each other.
Heart matters.

To look without compassion,
To observe and not be touched
Is the sign of a cold heart.

When there’s no
Spiritual well
Inside of you,
Life is like
An empty shell.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
