"...though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so."

Or are you?

To what end did You bring me here?
That I may hold her hand while You slowly take her from me?
That she may not be alone while her body feasts on itself?

What exactly is Your plan?
Because You always have a plan.
Tell me the lesson that I may learn it quickly.

I am not Job.
Do not test my righteousness, because I will fall...
I will fall farther than where You found me.
I will fall deeper into the abyss of faithlessness.

Take me instead.
Do not punish her for my sins.
Do not forsake the ones to whom she is their all.
Take me instead, that she may live to declare your glory.

NOBODY WILL BELIEVE THAT I JUST LEFT THIS PAGE: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Death_be_not_proud
BEFORE VISITING YOUR BLOG. Like all through today, I was doing a study on John Donne and then I had read many of his works, came to that page. then thought to do my blog rounds and then I saw your post. I almost freaked out!
