Sleepless

Don’t let yourself into this flowing mass of people and politic.

I want to understand how things went wrong here, and I know where to go while life sours.

I know how it feels to be misunderstood, to be out of context. I can relate to that, to representing an entire tongue, a people.

There are consistent differences that reveal shifting ideology…gusts of darkness in the light places of the world. What does any of it mean, so broken?

And there were many dreams before the losses overtook us, I think. Pleasure came in truth and discovery instead of any cold and waxing mos.

Maybe words aren’t enough to cover the lacerated minds we harbor beneath shiny sociable shells. So when all is done and said, the backward illogic of sin gains such authority as our ethical king; this rule is tyranny.

I am often devastated by the Word of God. The world comes to its end, and I know that when He speaks, enemies burst in blood and misery. There is an inescapable violence hidden within the perfect and just judgment of the Holy God on the earth. New gusts have reclaimed their childhood grounds…and these winds hack the losing to shreds.

So what, then, has now been overcome? The sting of death cannot stand the sting of white-haired rectitude in force. Today another king takes the throne, of ethics and everything else. No flowing mass of people and politic could withstand the flurrying Sword and compacting Spirit. Who might know a more severe gentleness, a more vicious lovingkindness?

Who has known this King? Who has seen His face and not been destroyed? And thus there is another mass of people…one whose politic is personal and compassionate.

Meanwhile, a soft breeze frolicks over a blood-stained robe. I hide in the folds of fabric, and drink in a deep, deep, sudden peace. I grasp the strong legs – trunks and towers.
