Held Hostage Written By Nichole Sulpizio



Lit candles
Sipping wine
On what brought me
To this ugly place and time
Mistakes of lust
Sins of the flesh
Misguided trust
Villians i let in
Robbed of my innocence
Beliefs lost
Vowing to never be here again
Friends by my side
There arms opened wide
Wiping countless tears
Gulping bottles of red wine
Intense gaze
At the flickering wick
Mouse caught in a maze
Losing grip
Fingers slip
Past ghosts
That haunt me
Watching them burn
In the flames of hell
Burning souls
For what they have done
Smoked obscured tears
Hitting the floor
Banging as hard as i can
Bruised knees
Knuckles bleed
Watching the blood slowly drip
From my fingertips
Painful intensities
Of evil i allowed
To cross my path
Cursing there names
They will never win
Held hostage now
Sun setting
Fist clenched
This fight i will win
This fight…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
