The Meltdown

I heard your words —
They seemed absurd.
Inside my mind
They twirled and whirled.
What you said’s
Not what I heard.

They festered in
Mind’s darkest place.
No logic there
I could embrace.

They bubbled, troubled
My thoughts and then,
They went in circles —
‘Round again.

Next time I hear
These words that trouble —
That torture, fester,
Twist, and bubble …

I’ll take a moment
And ask myself,
“Why not just put them
On the shelf?”

Confession

The wound of sin
Festers within,
Until God’s light
Can make it right.

Why try to hide
The pain inside?
The healing comes
When brought to light.
