Covered in Blood

The only way to see our need is to look at the Savior. Take a moment to reflect as you read this old poem of mine. I should get back into writing poetry.


 
My hands are covered with blood;
sticky, sickening, red.
 
I’m dancing the death dance;
terror, gloom, dread.
 
I’m looking into his face;
gasping, gurgling, dying.
I’m feeling my blood turn cold;
chilly, guilty, accusing.
He’s steadily looking back;
warmth, grace, forgiveness,
He is whispering a prayer;
genuine, earnest, honest:
“Father, forgive her… She knows not what she does.”
 
I’m looking at my sin;
dark, disgusting, ugly.
 
I’m seeing it in on his face;
suffocating, crushing, lethal.
I’m seeing my desperate place;
broken, battered, feral.
His eyes are piercing mine;
loving, compassionate, melting.
He is beckoning me higher;
gently, kindly, pleading,
In this cold heart, He’s kindling a fire;
slowly, bigger, brighter.
Though I slay Him yet will He serve me.
 
My hands are covered with blood;
sticky, sickening, red.

 

His heart is covering me in love;
gently, kindly, beautifully.
