Forever

I broke the chains around my wrist
And as they fell
The sounds reverberated through the jail cells in Hell
The demons tried to capture me
And steal my heart again
But their claim had been erased
My time for imprisonment was over
No longer was that document
That kept me locked, found
God burned it with his fire
And now my heart is consumed
And the devil's hold turned to ash
God etched my heart in the ash
M.a.r.k.i.n.g. me
Telling me,
"You are mine. Forever."
F. o. r. e. v. e. r.
So often forever comes to fast
And never turns into eternity
But this time
The mark was permanent.
Brokenness had echoed in my heart
Long enough
Now that voice
Itself
Is so b/r/o/k/e/n
It's so gone.
The breaking of my chains
Reverberated through the prison of hell
And they want my escape avenged.
So my life is now a fight
To stay within the light
And set the other captives free.
