I write what I feel…



Post No. 850




Barely visible, translucent eyes

Look back at me reflection-wise

There am I embedded in the glass

Prisoner confined without bars

Restrained, detained in your embrace

Held captive, controlled, without force

Willing hostage to the one above

Ever dependent on his perfect love

Prisoner in the darkness of my soul,

Invisible chains held me in the blackness of that gaol,

Shadows moved around enclosing walls

Circling smoothly, pressing darkly

Black on black against the light.


Spectres, spirits, ghouls flickered in the gloom,

Encroaching back to back around me in the room.

I cried out to God to help me flee,

Escape the evil that I felt surrounding me

And He… and HE was the One who set me free!
