Take My Hand

Caught in the silence of the night

My heart pounds in my chest

This beast of mine defies the night

Cried in the distance of the there and then

Kind words based on assumptions

Oh sweet heavens forgive me now

Undo my sin and let me find salvation

By a kiss

I seek forgiveness in your lips

Maybe God will meet me there

And hear my prayer once more

Taking the breath

That knows no end

Free me from this ill-forgotten thought that rummages in my head

It beats down my desire

Let logic surrender

Take my hand like a breath and hold it tight
