and the fourth book

from the deep

“ from the deep it came
unseen

darkness spewed from its mouth in silent words
gulping my life before i could breath
gnawing the chrome from my mind

through its eye
my unfeeling heart
began to awake

and tasted of salt
as I said I knew
but long wanted to forget

and the hurt it reawakened refused to subside
the cruel act
the cruel man

hidden like the deep creature
in the calm of the field

where other acts were buried

and my farse began to throb and pain

and though the creature brought such shame
its trauma released my fearfull heart

released to feel
both the darkness that Derrida refuses to sense
and this beast that can’t be known
till the heart will feel

till I only rest in Him “
