Swept Away

Swept away forever
The measure of dread
In flaming fire
The smoke of torment
A consuming fire
Sins contamination
Poured out at the cross
A fury of fire
Drink the wine of Gods wrath
From the cup of anger
Grasp the sweetness
Crimson savoured
Once and forever
We have been redeemed
The price paid for
Perfect atonement
In holy union
That brings us now
To perfection and joy.

Fully satisfied in the promise
Fully immersed in your grace
Mesmerized by the cross
Basking in the glory of your finished work
Permanently blessed
Permanently redeemed
He is constantly smiling at me.

Every fleeting breath
Knows the joy
Of wonder
For drifting songs
Sung in a symphony
Wakes the world
Heralds the promise
Just for me

Unpacked Suitcase

Unpacked suitcase
Chestnut shadowed curves
Small perfect window
Innocent silhouette
Hidden year on year

Unpacked suitcase
Honeysuckle malice
Blistered passion
Solace of hope
Past becomes the future

Unpacked suitcase
Mistress of crimson
Mania or despair
Legacy `filled chest
Ransom’s treasure

Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life on My account will find it – Matthew 10:39.

My Headstrong Heart

Flowers of harvest rust
Loveliest crimson
For two small sparrows
Comfort and conquer
My headstrong heart

As the thickening atmosphere
Sheds its natural dread
Where shadows turn
And flickering light melts
My headstrong heart

Everything is laid bare
There is nothing left to say
No sound, no movement
Just the forgiveness offered to
My headstrong heart

Another Life

Under white leaves
Orange evening grass
Unravelled Stitches
Drizzle silent love
In the light of another life

Psalm 13

A vacuum within realities
Threatening rumblings
Growing more intense
Deep within me
Wars take place
After the last door has shut

The liquid of experience
Asks each question
And offers freedom
From regret and despair

Listen to your promises
For the sharing of your blood
Is the reason why I saw,
Forgiveness in your love
