Instead

“The old man longed for Him to say something, however bitter and terrible. But He suddenly approached the old man in silence and softly kissed him on his bloodless aged lips. That was all His answer.”
The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoyevsky

The soft swell of the Trisagion washes over me…

Rapt

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy
Even when it’s not right
“Try”, Pink

It was dead quiet in the shipyard…

Bygone

Don’t go looking for the reasons
Don’t go asking Jesus why
We’re not meant to know the answers
They belong to the by and by
-Broken Halos, Chris Stapleton

I got mad in church today…

Trace

Was it something that somebody said?
Mama, I know we broke the rules…
Ashes of laughter
The ghost is clear
Why do the best things always disappear
Like Ophelia
-The Band, Ophelia

A friend of mine was telling a ghost story the other day…
