Dead Man


Temptation can’t trouble a dead man
Not even shadows hidden in dark corners
That twist around my wrist
And try to distract my thoughts
To strangle me.
However pulled I am
I cannot raise the old Adam
Deep memories
Lie in wait to ambush
When recollections suddenly appear
Accusing lies of sins forgiven
With nail pierced outstretched hands
Of a sacrifice, perfect and pure, in my place
In my crucified death.
