An Instrument of Adoration


An Instrument of Adoration

I’ve played dead and let this dying soul build my grave six feet underground

My heart needs resuscitation for life is gained when love and peace are found

Although I’m chancing everything by letting myself become fully attached

Relying on the delight of this world to foolishly stay alive for death has snatched

To only see an empty book of pages covered in blood that spills with disgust

Who will witness to the people if you fail to make the time and come to trust?

Just giving up or giving in to hold the breaking heartstrings together somehow

The devil wagers for my soul turning black in this wasteland that fails to grow


This haunting shadow falls over my face to awaken my conscious state of mind

A cold chilling aftershock that’s cooled by a divine spark that wisp through to unwind

This vessel which sheds this metamorphic layer of dead flesh that’s becoming reborn

While whispering the tune of a sweet song played off blistering lips which are worn

By the striking winds that beat me down to my knees to tear this splintered soul apart

God tune this instrument you’ve made me into so I can take all your words to heart


You leave me breathless in this whirlwind of rising fires that light up the night sky

The air is heavy with celestial power as this spiritual energy inside starts to climb high

For wandering eyes to crowd in amazement of the true beauty that brings such awe

Mesmerized by the splendor of your electrifying love that these eyes of mine saw

While burning within like a furnace to ignite the passion of a poet’s longing plea

This heart has found the path of fulfillment that you have led us to so faithfully


My precious treasure flows through this tranquil heart of mine that beats with vigor

My past mistakes are buried in the earth’s soil as my mind escapes the sounds of a trigger

For you delivered me from the violent waves that had tossed me far out into to sea

The winds that once had forced me underneath are now the winds that carry me

Amongst a chosen generation who waits for the moment of truth to reveal hope today

Salvation is only a breathe beyond the scope of reality that opens the passageway


Brett Fletcher 1-07-05


Amidst the ashes of humanity their remains a love sacrifice that we need to cherish

The pure at heart have found this gift and seek comfort for their souls that never perish

I love this write and the title . Check out my new writes. Stay blessed bro.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
