Inspired by That Hideous Strength


Oh, that I could scream
And the world would stop and listen
And these scars
These scars could speak in volume

“But who has ears to hear
Or eyes to see?” again I scream

But my voice is buried in an unearthly silence
Like in nightmares when ghosts steal your breath

I pray that power be not in my words
But in truth that supersedes the mind of man
In our dead hope and our blind faith in means
That look to justify the ends, that look to justify the ends

I feel a presence in the room
I feel cold fingers close around my neck
Without you I am lost

Let my eyes not fail with looking upward
Let my eyes not fail with looking upward
