Nightmares

Putrid carcasses

What’s dead but won’t die

Featureless faces, silent voice

Ever abandoned child lost

Torment replayed, opaque night’s

Dreams poised to render

Vulnerable mind insane…

Day’s wakening wind wafts chimes

God’s Spirit dispels darkness

“For You are my lamp, O LORD; And the LORD illumines my darkness.” 2nd Sam 22:29, NASB

Backstairs of Time

Climbed backstairs of Time

Quest to solve myst’ries in mind

Light abyss, make shine

Torment’s hidden treasures rimed

Weep-soaked stones broken for rhyme

Steps askew…defined

Rifts…the Savior realigned

Prayers lift…line on line

Courage, commitment assigned

Faith which Past can’t undermine

Untangled by God Divine
