I Here Be

Adrift at sea I here be
Awaiting the dawn to welcome me. 
Darkness looms within the waves 
Of silent thought and salty spray. 
Upon the breath of death I ride
Eager for my soul to hide. 
I touch the darkness though I feel you not; 
Your whispers beckon and console 
My wounded soul 
To feed my thirst 
To partake
To quench the hunger for my sake. 
Upon this raft of Christ I cling 
To anchor me, 
To hold me fast, 
To lift my soul beyond my task.
I cast my gaze beyond the waves 
Which glimmer in a moon-lit haze. 
I splash my face with sin’s delight 
Weighing its worthless 
Fluid might.
