2. Taste Death For Every Man

This is part of an unfinished project I began about halfway through this year. I have been doing a personal study of the book of Hebrews and began to write some poetry based on my own reactions and reflections as I read.

Unfathomable love, Lord
How could you look with shining perfection
To my rotten corpse?
How could you deign to kiss putrid lips?
To breathe in blackened lungs?
To embrace me, sinner?
How could I forget you?
How can I doubt?
You stole the death from my body
The despair from my eyes
What more can I do?
This is mercy
