PLUCKED FROM THE MUCK

 

 

 

 

Distinct sucking sound

One I shall never forget

Clash of furious wet energy

Engaging

Inward water spout

Vortex

Boring straight down

Slurping victim descent

Into a water walled labyrinth

Life at times

Such helpless tugging

Forever looking for a weak spot

Lecherous

Bloodthirsty

Seducing each isolated weakness

Sucking it bone dry

As if deep in the forest

Massive sink hole

Vacuum cavity

Direct path into the jaws of hell

I am reminded vacuity

My soul

Feels like an excavation

Slowly

I let go of the fleshly

Tightly grip His gentle hand

Plucked from the quicksand

I hear the anguished cries of the drowning

Soon consumed by the fatal muck

This lesson I have learned

As my wings expand to fly

Discipleship

The walk grows solitary

Just the Lord and Me

As it should be

Him

I shall follow

Into hells maw

My imperfect human body

Showing signs of weakness

Nausea

Frailty

Dementia

Perhaps from the pharmaceuticals

Sickness

Preparation

The art of enduring loneliness

Gaping human hole

Miniscule in scale

Sights set on future vision

He in me

I in Him
