hope will arise

September is Suicide Prevention month…linking with Ramblings of a Writer for “emotions & healing” prompt.

 

We never know the black hole into which another soul has fallen…

 

darkest emotions
troubles press into death wish
Stop! glimpse healing light

 

 

In U.S. call:  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – Call 800-273-TALK (8255)

belfry intruders

 

brother’s house at dusk

tossing tennis balls up high

attract bats in flight

 

webbed fingers claw air

phantasy rides on bat wings

flutters in the dark

 

random wild ideas

scratching in the mind’s attic

nightmares fly at dawn

inscrutable

(a tearful triolet)

 

dark are the days God hides his face

when sinners cry for rescue

long are the nights we pray for grace

dark are the days God hides his face

we hope to reach a better place

doubt is dark side of faith – it’s true

dark are the days God hides his face

when sinners cry for rescue.

Wrote this describing the “dark night of the soul”  when one wrestles with God. (Later decided to link up with d’versepoets for Mary’s theme of “invisibility”)
