Cold, Snowy Night 11/14/06

Cold, snowy night with Kirby playing
on the iPod and Jesus on the page
All day, emotions dipping and swaying
behind this counter for minimum wage

Once strong resolve slides into chilling doubt
Truths  and lies blend to mired shades of grey
As angels whisper and the demons shout,
Enticing me from the narrow way

Sin binding me like metered, rhyming verse
Words  twisted to fit letter, but break  law
By a tired heart, lonely and perverse;
Each weary beat reveals another flaw

Is there no respite for us who mean well,
but find our true selves on the path to Hell?

    really says it, doesn’t it.

    Bless your heart, I hope things come together for you.
