33. SOS

Lord, it has gotten worse,
when is it going to end?

in trickles came the flow of verses
messages became harder to send

i lost the connection
i am floating nowhere

literally and figuratively
the "floating" I can no longer bear

it is one thing to be helpless
to be hopeless is another

i feel light, just like paper
come rescue me in prayer

after posting this verse, I turned to my Bible, asking God to show me a verse that would speak to me...
The page opened to Psalm 10, 11, 12 and :

The Thirteenth Psalm

    For the director of music. A psalm of David. 1 How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever?
   How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
   and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
   How long will my enemy triumph over me?
 3 Look on me and answer, LORD my God.
   Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
   and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
 5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
   my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the LORD’s praise,
   for he has been good to me.
