unconscious ocean floor

chaotic din
unceasing
the radio
the voices
the thoughts
the pain

where did the quiet go?

take me to silence
the place my soul rests
lays out cares
breathes

take me to the silence
where birds feed their wings
with air streams
and forgotten melodies

take me to the silence
I need to hear
my own heartbeat

take me to the silence
where life stills
get me away
from my brain
from noise

stop the chatter
commercials
fears
people— vessels
I cling to
leave me
broken,
empty

yearning

not sure
what soul
restless for

but I continue
to wander
till
someone
saves
me

drowning
blacked out
ocean floor
bubbles stopped
rising
gone

unexpected
welcomed
He came
like a wild mare
fierce
glorious

perfect timing
picked up
lungs flooded
water pumped
out
air again
choke
cough
breathe
alive

overwhelmed
gratitude
hug
overcame
my sorrow
replaced
with peace

Jesus—
the world’s
rescue plan
my perfect
alltogether beautiful
answer
lover
Saviour.
