Twinkle Stars

Twinkle Stars

These starry nights

you would not be the death of me

these dots of sparkle

that turn the sky into a king’s crown

like finely divided iron you catalyze

that reversible reaction in equilibrium

just like the delirium

you lock-throw me into

melting the keys

i wish i could live in the bliss

of that day and moment forever

when i stared at those stars

their approving reciprocation

in my soul

seconds before i was buried.

divinity replaced flesh

in Your name

like a policeman on conman

the grip  more than grate-teeth tight

on the pants of my soul

to attempt resistance

power conferred

ability triggered

every stop of my being

more than tampered with

for the better .

the stars witnessed

eyes expectant

with pens at the ready

silent clicks of midgets

teasing whatever ears

as i reeled my wrongs

the invisible sea of oblivion

flowing with gusto and unction

my way….what joy!

there and then

teary eyed and heavy hearted

i pledged

time quality

effort inestimable

skill professional

energy unrivalled

to His cause

things of yore

in a way that takes aback

counting no more

locked in Good’s cell

Scofield and Burrows

undesirable and hateful characters

the day that day was

how many will i deny, the stars

what alibi can i hand them

should i veer off this path

with what will i ”settle” ┬áthose Hosts

on the day of reckoning?

how will i face His presence

the smoky altar

when the Lamb turns Lion

should my back face this way

Twinkle stars, twinny stars

keep reminding me..of my commitment.
