Ease This Pain

From Isaiah 49:13:  “Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing!  For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have compassion on His suffering ones.”

Does anyone truly feel my pain tonight?

Feeling run over, with nothing to gain

Nightly tears and torment, dark dreams take flight

Who can reach out with love to ease this pain?

 

Feeling without life, bleak and cold numbness

A distant, yet strong voice comes close to thee

Light creeps over the horizon’s darkness

Listen!  Hear His voice, kneeling on my knees

 

God’s Holy Word soothes agonizing pain

Turning to listen, He’s never been gone

Leaving oneself with so much love to gain

Now praising my Lord, life hums a new song

 

My Lord, my God—His mercy comforts thee

Lasting hope, opens eyes forever to see

This poem was inspired by a few of the lyrics from the song “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd.  A fellow blogger shared this song, and my poetic craft found a way to bring some of the song into this Christian poem.  God inspires!

    • Renee, thanks for your kind words. I found the Pink Floyd song, and I didn’t really know what I with it. With time and patience, a poem developed. I posted the poem which we talked about several days ago. It shows some honesty with humor (and a bit of sarcasm). God’s peace!

  1. This is one of your best poems, I think. The form (I think that’s what it’s called..four line stanzas) works very well (with two lines to summarize at the end). For me as a reader, it caused me to slow down and think more about the words and the message.
