Wrote this poem when I was having a "dark night of the soul" and was encouraged to write to get my feelings out....

Darkness, squeezing out the light
Till I can no longer see
I want to let go
But the pain still remains
God where are you?
Even in the whispers
I cannot hear you
The darkness of the soul
Anchors in my heart
I’m searching to find the light
But I don’t know if I have the strength
God do not fail me now
**************************
Glimmers of light
Find their way into the darkness
Into the silence, I unhinge the weight of my soul
God takes my pain
But Terror, anger must be faced
Take off the mask and open the soul
I fear emptiness will find pain as its mate
If God does not cover my heart
The dawn promises a new start
As my weary soul searches for water
The well may be dry
But rain is coming

Ah...but even in a "dark night of the soul" your finger was guided to press upon a pulse of Hope. Nice!
Anthony.
