the human remains

( this poem comes from a book of poetry i wrote called don’t bury me here. i wrote this book in the wake of my painful divorce back in 2004. the relief i found in words proved to be a source of illumination, painful self realization, healing, and ultimately breakthrough! i hope the poems i share from that time in my life inspire the courage to face pain head on with christ and to push through to the other side.)


the human remains



neath facades

of industrious weatherstrip

lies a

cataclysmic unknown


probing the great abyss


betrayed lover

warm embraces

conjure images and faces

sent spiraling for cover

fragments of another world

where memories cling to dust

cloaking mystery in failure

separating us

-yet amid all these things


one bright facet

glimmering at dawn

in subtle happenings

hopes ceaseless song

rising in the echo chamber

of lovelost and far flung

rushing past idols

deaf and dumb

to the throne of god
