GOLGOTHA SCORNED

GOLGOTHA SCORNED

Was that a sigh?
Did you whisper?
Perhaps a prayer
Through parched lips

Can it be this black
One on oneΒ 
With ebony
Submerged in Jet

Needed forgiveness
A taste of mercy
A second chance
A one more time

β€œEli Eli Lama
Sabachthani”
Golgotha
Scorned

Come on
You knew the rules
the way it was played
You chose

You didn’t know alone
Until now
No prayer heardΒ 
here

Nothing matters
Now
Never longed so
For cessationΒ 

No death here
No end
Aching empty
Despair

Forever

My biggest wish is that no one ever feels that way, horrible
it was my friends four year anniversary yesterday he committed suicide, I wish he had the strength to spit in the face of darkness - and live.

Sorry to hear that John
I feel it's our duty to add light where hope is lost

The world needs more love
Much peace and blessings

The tragedy of despair is the darkest of emotions we hope never to experience...A subject that many shy from but needs screamingly to be hear..you have made this a very expressive platform John..not an easy write I suspect but so worth the effort. Truly powerful !! Lodigiana xΒ
