Deepest Disconnection

DEEPEST DISCONNECTION

rbr - December 2006

Disconnection

Loss of balance

A quest for prodigal return

Incomplete

Unsatisfaction

A desperate yearning to be forgiven

These are the

Deepest wounds

Incapable of healing

Unsutured

Always bleeding

No amount of penitence

Or compression

Will halt this

This lifeblood flowing

Out of us

Cynical

Finished with me

Running from every possibility

Unwilling

Or unable

To risk new pain

From these eyes

From this voice

Inured by the curse of shame

But, I, despite it all

Cannot be defined

By the worst thing

I have ever done

All I know for sure

And can believe

Is this grace and mercy

I've Found

Down on my knees
