psalm 57: carnivorous worldPosted: August 1, 2013
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.
