I Belong to You, Lord

Approaching darkness 
Sips from my soul
Peeks into crevices
Freezes joy

A heightened awareness
Suffocates my thoughts 
Paralyzes the heart song
Placed there as a child

A ratta tatta tatta 
Cerebral noise
Unable to change the tune of my existence

I belong to you, Lord
Your effervescent love
I reject this hatred molesting my song
Draw my mind’s eye back towards you
Beckon your angels to comfort me through 
This storm

Written for Nette Onclaud's Contest--Synesthesia: Inner Body Movement

    Very touching excellent poem written by a very good poet. I saw another poet named Margherita Russo she's only 14 and I know it would mean alot for her to have you read her newest poem if you have the time. Thank you very much.

    I like this a lot! Every line is packed with a punch. "Hatred molesting my song", brilliant! That alone will get a winning spot....Good Luck!

    very interesting the contrast here of being in tune with God but being bothered by hatred. I never tried this particular challenge but I am sure reading some good ones like this one.
