SILENCE AND SIN

A HUNGER SO OBSCENE
A NEED SO PROFOUND
THE GATES BEGIN TO OPEN
LYING ON THE COLD,HARD GROUND.

CLINCHING FOR THE AIR INSIDE
PAIN FLOWING AS A RUGGED EMBRACE
TAKEN TO AN UNWANTED TIME
STARING INTO THE EYES OF DISGRACE.

NOWHERE TO RUN, NOWHERE TO GO
NEEDING ABUNDANT RELEASE
PULLING FROM THE INSIDE OUT
WAITING FOR THE FLOOD TO DECEASE.

LONGING TO BE FREE
IN A WORLD I DON’T BELONG
PULLING AWAY, INSIDE TO MY SOUL
FREE ME FROM IT ALL
NO LONGER TO BE WITHDRAWN.

TRUST SO EASILY, CARELESSLY MISPLACED
NEVER AGAIN RETRIEVED
ANGER FOR WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN
A LIFE LOST HAS OFTEN BEEN GRIEVED.

CASCADING IMAGES COME TO MIND
PLAYING OVER TIME AND BACK AGAIN
NEVER ENDING AND ALL CONSUMING
DROWNING OF SILENCE AND SIN.
