Fig leaves don’t offer enough coverage 
in a marriage 
I am exposed before you

You’ve crucified yourself
on my selfishness, lust, and pride 
And in every argument 
You aim and fire the question 
“How have you brought Christ into this?”
And my lion’s mouth is shut 

July 2nd, 2011 was death and birth 
Our expectations of one another 
eventually crumbled  
under the trembling stone rolled away 
and Christ taught us marriage is much sweeter 
when He’s holding the leaves
