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

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…

Lay It Down

An anguish infuses my being For me there’s no end in sight The attack has left it’s sting I avoid it with all my might   I’m clutching onto my agony It’s too much for me to bear I’m drowning in my tears Screaming “Life it isn’t fair!!”   Grasping the burden is too much…

The Dungeon

Each step down into the gloom Ignites fear within. Without light you cannot see As the darkness swallows you.   Searching feverishly and wantonly Trailing a glimpse of light That will reveal the shadows, Expose the dreary depths.   That little crevice exposes promises broken, Sleepless nights amid endless tears Clothed in pain, the dungeon…

Witness to Destruction

A child was tainted, love redefined. Innocence snatched forever. No one collected her tears while she owned her shame.   Waves of pain fueled madness. Swirls of anger polluted the air. An appalling witness flooded into the valley of demise.   Hope faltered in the polluted soul. Tainted memories strangled her goodness. Acceptance included no…

War Within

Raging within is a fight A brawl that leaves me speechless Memories march in to destroy any purity in me As God whispers of His love Confused from the madness I want to fight against the shame Too weary now to face it So I ask God to ease my pain I surrender all my…

The Light of Grace

Darkest dreams flood into the night after hearing the fate of another’s plight Wearing disgust and full of disgrace Once again wondering if I’m a hopeless case Fighting the urge to keep the darkness at bay Hearing whispers from the Spirit telling me its okay Exhausted and tearful, I’m at my wits end Hoping nothing…

The Middle of the Storm

My eyes fill with tears As I remember years past Revealing how much pain That is buried there   There are such horrors Dug into my soul That rock me still Down to my core   The senseless bastard Dishonored, disrespected me But still I felt bound by loyalty And silenced by my own shame…

Unleashing the Monster

Writing out my life story Gives permission for doubts to rise Makes my heart race and I want to hide I feel like I’m drowning again Worthlessness, shame and darkness is here to destroy As the pain is stomping out any hope in me I must cry out to God and grasp something close To…
