& before redemption &
"Oh who shall deliver me from this body of death?"
This sin tears, forces, drags me to the depth.
Release me, O Lord,
From my captivity-
The prison cell of my own flesh.
The bars of steel and rust never rot away.
Blackness of soul-
Darkness of thought-
The body strapped to me decays and rots
Until the disease corrupts and overtakes me
For a like fate.
The stench is unbearable-
The ache and pain of constant torment
Deteriorates the strongest of sanities.
O Lord, be my Savior
From this death that is my own.
…'The Inferno' might not be the healthiest thing to read…ugh, sorry.
