Save Me

Save Me – A Poem by Marissa Campbell

I am pitched through the sands of time.

My throat is parched, my skin chapped.

I am buffeted on all sides by decisions I have made.

The desert molds me.

My ego is broken.

I dissolve bit by bit until my soul is ready.

I fall helpless and prostrate at God’s feet.

Save Me

I can’t do this by myself.

I feel alone and deserted.

I’ve been abandoned.

Save Me

I give myself to it.

I let myself fall.

I fall back into space.

I fall into the sky.

Something catches me.

I am floating, buoyant.

Space and time cease to exist.

There is only eternity,

It cradles me.

It envelops me.

Save me

I am safe.

I am loved.

I am here.

I always have been.

Through the Darkness – a poem by Marissa Campbell

I am hollow: bereft.

I feel the blackness coalesce.

Where am I?

Who am I?

This is not where I’m meant to be.

This isn’t the path chosen for me.

It’s all wrong.

I’m all wrong.

I can’t find my way out.

I can’t climb, I don’t shout.

Why bother.

I’m so tired.

Why does this circle entwine?

Why does this box confine?

My heart aches.

My head aches.

Round and round, I blindly flail.

My urgency is to succeed, yet my pattern is fail.

I can’t do this anymore.

I can’t be this anymore.

Yet I can’t just make it go away.

I must face this bleakness; I choose to stay.

Give me strength.

Give me peace.

Give me hope.

Let me be.
