psalm 57: carnivorous world

i don’t want your pity, but i
could use a little of your
mercy, do you think maybe
i could stay here with you
just for a little while?

i’m seeking refuge from a world that
has suddenly turned carnivorous on me,
no longer a home so much as a
bottomless pit that’s opening wider and
wider, laughing crazy laughter
as it ever so slowly swallows me whole.

i know i can’t hide here forever, but
maybe for a night or two, just let me
rest a bit under the shadow of your wings,
where the darkness can envelop my heart
without devouring my soul.

  1. It was a comfort to read this, today.

    “just let me rest a bit under the shadow of your wings…” Ahh – the ultimate “recharging station”.

    Shalom to you and yours. Beth
