I Belong to You, Lord

Written by: Gwendolen Rix

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
