The Door of Darkness (Christian Poem)

It was a beautiful door.Expensive wood. Carved features. A mind that understood. The door called.It beckoned.It glowed. It welcomed. The words it would sing. Sweet. Soft. Gentle. Words that delighted the soulyetmelted the marrow. I never noticed before.How it alwaysopened to another door. Going from woodto metal. Less beautiful,the effects more internal. The doors became… Continue reading The Door of Darkness (Christian Poem)

Darkness surrounds me,but I think it’s light. My eyes are blind,but I think I see clearly. Whispers bite me.Accusation sinks in. But I love condemnation. It’s my truth. The pain makes me alive.

The Hand That Chisels

In joy, the sun-kissed skies dance along the waves of grass. I am free, as the wind blows. The days are short and pass. In darkness, the rain weeps down.Loudly pounding the ground.I am chained and broken.The days are long and nights longer. In bliss, I am merry. In darkness, I am consumed. In light,… Continue reading The Hand That Chisels

I… Continue reading Cotton Candy Life | Christian Poem
