Jesus of Nazareth


You rise slowly

Out of the trembling ash

Of death and desire

That crumbles below you

Like an avalanche

Set off from Hashem’s wrath

No layers to peel away

Human-bound soil

You’re alive

For the first time in

Truth’s Design

Chance’s hematoma

Washes clean

The afterbirth of survival

Tea tree


And sage wrap you and cradle

Your ribboned and multi-faceted wounds

Until your heart sings

Among the destitute indifference

The burden of the lies

Quake beneath the cracks of Hell’s sky

You are impervious to the blister on Humanity for all time

While the day sheds tears to those who pray

To you for healing

In life

You die no more

Now the birds announce The Reckoning


“You” by The Lyre Effect


Published by: rhythmoftime

I love to write, cook, and take photos. As an INFP personality type, I truly care about others and my values. I'm a fraternal twin, have two older brothers, and I served in AmeriCorps. I love my family and my boyfriend. They rock! For years, I collaborated online with Stuart Armitage (UK). Our band, The Lyre Effect, released several albums, though we never met in person. Additionally, I've written a novel, novella, poetry book, and children's book series. Being into the visual arts from a young age, I've had my artwork featured in several gallery exhibits, enjoyed providing assistance on music video sets, as well as acted in and co-directed a few short films. Playing piano and singing are also passions of mine (wrote my first song and poem when I was 9 years old). Currently, I'm part of the writing group, Lead Us Ink, and published my first poetry book in 2015. In this technological age, I think it's important to share the written word, something that will always be sacred and personal. I hope this blog will help me to connect more with others, and I look forward to networking with readers like you. I want to find out about new music, interesting articles, and artwork. So, please, reach out to me. I might even have some good suggestions for you. Take care, and happy reading!
