A Life Apart

Haunting thoughts of past regret,
staves the joy so hungrily sought.
Deep void the present self does feel,
from inner battles waged and lost.

Vexing skirmishes wrought with pain,
bring lonely cries that wrench the heart.
Lost so long all hope does ebb,
that severed hope apart from God.

Salvo meus Christus,
I’ve been but a worm.
But You are Light, You are God
with mercy and joy untold.

About Mike

I'm a native of Chicago, but have spent the last 20 years living in the Ozarks with my wife of 25 years. Some of my favorite things to do other than write is to BBQ, smoke meat, and brew craft beers. I also write a blog on Christian Living which you can visit at www.YourSpiritMindandBody.com.

    It’s the worst loneliness — separation. And there’s only one thing that can change it. Good poem.

    I thank you all for your comments. I believe a life apart from God is the description of loneliness. And I truly appreciate this forum to share our poems with each other.
