Peace Before Light

Keeping the demons at bay As the night slips away  Hoping that the dark of night Gives way to peace before light Seeking the Almighty’s cover As memories try to hover Knowing a past of pain Has already left its stain There is nowhere to hide When the terror lives inside So I must lay…

A Fateful Night

Knowing I’m being sucked in Darkened by chilling moments within Reminders of a fateful night I want to overlook with all my might Attacked, wrecked and thrown aside Feeling pathetic with no place to hide I could not tackle all the disgrace For then my mind the memories erase But now that night tries to…

devil licking at my heels

Utter despair Allotted nothing –This is it— The devil licking at my heels Dragging me into the pit All I’m left with is My tears and Jesus Wails of despair  screams in the shadows Wrestling till I see the morn And I am still here

From Broken to Beloved

(Thanks to Larry and Frank for the inspiration) From under a blanket of shame shouts cries of silence. My doubts preach a sermon all their own. Broken, abused,  soul’s been crushed -But this will NOT be how my story ends- Empowered by the Almighty, I start to release the pain and my scars are fading….

I’m Still Here

I’m still here- But I want to live not just survive If I give up- Surviving the bullshit was for nothing It’s time to- Accept things and move on. The pain has cut loudly- Bruising my heart and soul I’m trying to silence- Demons from my past I have hurt, cried, bled- But still I…

Shattered Goodbye

I’m finished with broken promises No more selfish pleas and shameful demands  You will never be the man you should be Disappointed, my heart is draped in sorrow And the agony stomps out my hope -I just can’t keep doing this- Ripped apart from my soul my dignity dissolves Each vile touch splintered my heart…

Wounded heart

I’m torn apart Gathering the pieces As the darkness buries me Tears saturate the night Drowning all hope No use to fight it The pain never ends For this worthless soul

Horrors in the Night

Piercing the peace in my heart Horror marches into my night Ancient memories follow in Bringing the monster sulking in the shadows   Drowning feverishly in a glass Until his misty eyes grow dim Only if this would have stilled his hands And kept his body off me   Oh Lord protect my soul When…

What do you see?

Peeking in do you see- the little girl hiding her cries, drowned out by the madness -the deadened eyes that contain so much pain A hushed voice blankets over the scars that remain- it echoes in the stillness, if you take a listen A crushed soul is all that remains waiting to be set free

The Winter’s Exhale

  From the winters exhale I am snatched by the swirling wind Torn and ripped to pieces Scattered like specks of sand The night bellows at my demise as the cold seals my fate

Empty Bottle

? For just a moment The world made sense And my spirit did not tremble For I was blissfully numb But eventually The clouds clutched onto me Causing me To stammer and stumble through My faithful confidant Had become my poison Trying to seize my life The Almighty did…

Only in America…

Only in America Only in America- Do we have opportunity to worship God freely, But our churches are empty   Only in America- We have the right to free speech But don’t control our anger and we riot   Only in America- We claim “all lives matter” But we turn away refugees fleeing impending death…
