There is a place

There is a place, to quench your thirst

It lies

Further than you can reach


Nearer than losing hope

For if you fall short

And beseach the void

With nothing more than the scars of your trial

There will be no reply

From the dieties we cut out of paper and hang from the sky

There will be no response

From those Gods of the underworld, intent on war

And even calling upon Gia

She will cast a long weekend storm 

Drowning your faith in rain

Too easy to retrace and see again

The drizzle of despair, mocking courage

Only do not linger there on your knees

Carrying terror along a shiver of bone, knives on sleet

For haunted corridors have no permanent harness 

No freedom to defy, unless permission is granted

Only do not linger there in terror’s savage maw

Past fears may mount campaigns, but you

Sailed away on a blue midnight train

Wreathed in pale smoke and all unspoken dreams

For as long as you listen for fear, the record will remain

Stuck on a slow dance without willing partner

Choose your new shoes, write your own song

Frequent heartburn doesn’t hurt when you transfer to thirst

And drink deeply, for within the spring hope is refound

And God’s? They live not in clouds but within us

Lending the strength to never ever give up

  1. Incredible amount candy girl.

    Lord I thank you for this sweet hold of yours.
    Father I ask that you keep her in your grace
    Sheild her in your presence in your blood
    Lord let no hurt nor harm come near her
    Bless her in everyway. Lord give her strength
    And be with her, fill her with your joy and give her healing in her body
    And spirit
    In Jesus name Amen.

    Love you sister

  2. Love the ending! Should have known from the line “paper gods we cut out.” We need to have hope in these trying times for our nation. Perhaps we need to all look inward. I like this one very much as well as the art.
