“The Sword”

Cut off and away

these bands to

a flesh, mere rich

and tainted

shank of glory.

But feed me from

Spirit, from

Rock -oh

stream to Living Water.

My need, robust –


in guise of

an elemental plane’s workings;

but Thou knowest

my form goes so

much farther, and so much deeper than here and now.

Cut me down, cut me

off from these

unctions that bequeath

none but death.

Your Word is sword

that brings me rest.

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 (KJV)
