A Heart of Sorrow


A heart of sorrow
Which cannot be repaired
Lost in life’s silent ache
Burns holes in my memory.

Faded recollections
Warm waves come in a flood
A future burnt in ruins
Caressing a sweet tomorrow.

Long time holding on
Velvet ribbons cradle my soul
A silver cross hides despair
Silently healing a breaking heart.

Truth that grasps sadness
Surely calms a troubled brow
Fluent words softly spoken
Quietly brings help and comfort.

Peace poured out in a flood
Love through eternal splendor
Joy sublime in endless giving
A deluge of drowning grace.

The Ark



Strike the iron and split creations seed,
with force and power that divides, build the
ship that will herald the breath of promise.

Hammer the nails without restraint, drive them
home, tear into ancient veins wrought by time,
Join each worked piece into redemptions frame.

Silent falls the beating rain, drops of wrath
drip down as divine grief greets mankind, in
a gradual dance of agony and pain.

Tainted flesh is swept away engulfed, in
a stream of judgment, the heart of anguish
slowly bleeds, mercy poured out from heaven.

Crucify the plan with hate and lies, nail
his bruised and bleeding body to the tree
made with sweat into the shape of a cross.

Hung in contempt and polluted with sin,
a harvest of pain hidden within flesh,
drowning in a flood of eternal wrath.

The eradication of sins stain, the
final nail driven into a willing soul,
to defeat all that malice held sacred.

Rescued from the poured out anger, granted
life where once was death, a triumph of the
grace given to the undeserving victim.

Awaken



Awaken my mind to the spirit
Aware of Christ’s life on the inside
Not just my thoughts
Emotions
Reason
Logic
Knowledge
The influences of the natural world.

Change the perspective to my re-born spirit
Walk in closeness with Christ’s presence
Grace
Hope
Faith
Love
The consciousness of the spirit’s realm.

Falling In Love




Sip the wine as it kisses my lips, that
dance of delight which entices my heart,
drunk on the feelings of unrestrained joy

The pure wind of heaven captivates, a
glimpse of wonder, a touch of the divine
which quiets the warning voices that ravage.

Strike the nails that piece deep into my skin,
in a fragrant myrrh of passion and pain,
that draws me deeper into your embrace.

Satisfy my gloom and anguish, now fill
the desperate need of acceptance, a
touch, a connection filled with affection.

Enticed into an extravagant duet,
offered a chalice of touch and glances,
to drink the pure wine of loves sacrifice

Without restraint take me captive, submerge
into fathomless depths of buoyant love,
bring liberty to free a condemned soul

Breathe in your presence and savor the blood
written into my heart, the glass of your
fondness induces me to come inside

A waltz of discovery where all is
lost on a journey of hope to a far
distant land, following my forlorn heart

Hold me with your gaze, sweetly blow away
clouds of oppression, release us into
the swift stream of undiluted desire.

A Bitter PIll



A bitter pill given takes away my breath
Inherited nature leads me to my death
Every moment lived drives me to my fate.

A hopeless void engulfs my vacant heart
As fear wells up consuming every part
And deep inside my heart cries out forlorn.

Somehow I know there is an answer
A rescue from the trap of life’s cancer
A cry of hope in my desperation.

Your blood poured out for my redemption
Deaths reign now ended by your resurrection
The sting of death eternally made obsolete.

Hope now fills my heart as I realize
That my mortal body will one day rise
And death will have no more hold on me.

Lighthouse



The Keeper waits at the edge of the world,
as he knots his nets of starlight and air.
He watches and works and waits for the girl.
The one who charts the edge of this world.

Skating the edge, sharp bladed, she swirls.
He hears in her movement the breath of despair.
She makes her last turn and launches, midair
into madness
her sanity unfurls
into madness
her lunatic plunge.

Universe explodes pierced by radiant nets.
His scarred hands unfurl in their shattering pain.
The Keeper waits at the edge of the world.
Waiting, tear stained, for the girl.

Through space
starlight rushes.
She plummets
free-falls.

Will star nets contain her?
Suspended, she cries.

How will I chart the edge of this world
now that I've fallen off?

The Oil of your Word




The oil of your word
Drips through my hands, anointing me
Your sweet aroma
Floods through my senses, filling me
Embraced with you love, releasing me.

The wave of your spirit
Pours through my life, changing me
Your divine power
Pierces through my soul, healing me
Filled with your fullness, transforming me.

The realm of your glory
Breaks through my being, connecting me
A river of blessing
Flows through my all, enabling me
Released with your grace, embracing me.
