I must safeguard my soul
From darkness trickling
Cross my pallid skin
They say an invitation draws it in
Draws it in

Must barricade my heart
A dream’s a hopeless place
Here true despair begins
They say that praying merely draws it in
Draws it in

I must close every door
In solitude’s a sanctuary
No rejection of my deeper sins
And in surrender I’ll not draw it in
Draw it in

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
