Kyrie Sonnet

Pain pulsing from every inch within me
Eyelids closed to shield my eyes from the sun
Each strand of my body coming undone
Wishing, from agony, to be set free

Depression flows in like the rolling sea
My emotions rise and fall like the tide
Happiness and sadness, closely reside
Within the shadows of this soul called 'me'

Lord, can't you hear me crying for relief?
Can you not see me striving to be strong?
Yearning to hear a harmonious song
I sit, patiently, in silence and grief

Oh, Lord, break these chains and set this man free
Oh, Lord, won't You, please, have mercy on me?

Unseen daggers rip my innards apart
An endless resounding gong fills my ears
No one can dam the flow of my eyes' tears
Too often my days end before they start

My dreams are left in the darkness of night
Unfulfilled, hopeless and so far away
I wish just one could see the light of day
But, when morning breaks, they're nowhere in sight

Father, I know You draw nigh when I cry
Father, I know You have a master plan
Holy Ghost, gently guide me by the hand
Assure me His will is best, by and by

Oh, Lord, I pray, let me abide in Thee
Oh, Lord, won't You, please, have mercy on me?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
