you can feel the decay
the pain sets in to stay
tissue strips away from the fire
as it sets off inside
and the cries of agony rises higher
from the death creeping outside
crushing in your walls and your windows
and coming in and possessing your soul
suffocation pinches your throat
blackness scars over your eyes like a second skin
blocking all vision of your memories out
never to be seen again in this lifetime until heaven
by the grace of God, He heals your pain, scars and blindness
wipes away all your imperfections with His compassion
and lays you down in the security of His mighty hands
and breathes life back into you and you shall again stand
