Rebirth of Born Again - The death and life of faith

By D. Sager, published on Jan 19, 2012

Spiritual. More specifically, christian. Even more precise, Born Again Christian. These were my labels, my cult, my passion. It sounds good, it sounds right, but the reality was not so cut and dry. It wasn't right, because I wasn't. I had to lose my faith, get put through a hell on earth called divorce, burn in the fires of addiction, be put on the cross of heartache and betrayal. I had to lose everything to find the real me. Not the me created by the fan club of a very generic “God”, but the me that is reality. Only as I went through those fires did the impurities of my fake belief come to... (more)

Brokenness - No Pain, No Gain

By D. Sager, published on Jan 18, 2012

Broken. Usually this is a bad thing, sadness after the ruin of a beloved thing or life. There is another side to brokenness, a side that is beautiful. When trauma happens, when my mind snaps, when my heart breaks, when I'm left alone, when I'm betrayed, these things bring brokenness on their wings. In the aftermath, when all I'm left with are pieces of whatever it was I had, or whatever I was, can come a miracle recovery. The process of healing and restoration can begin, a change taking place that would never have occurred if I were left whole. This is a miracle, a wonder of God, that He can... (more)

Snuff Of Innocence

By D. Sager, published on Jan 18, 2012

With the subtly of snakes, he creeps through the grass

Lust on his mind, his tongue tasting the innocence

Peeling the soul away leaving his dying life behind

Pushing his severity on to one left alone

Fear is the knife held to a young neck

Forcing a change, cracking the tender mind

Raising to her feet, looking through the shock

A numbness begins, heaven's after thought to this evil

Vigilance now a trance to see the blurred face of the enemy

Shadows take shape, forever they will chase

Hiding, pulling the dark around like a... (more)

Darkness - Turning away the fear

By D. Sager, published on Jan 16, 2012

Running, chased by a darkness

Evil forebodings, raising in the Loch Ness

Calling, screaming, demanding I hear

Turning my soul away, to it a deaf ear

I drown the voice by my laughter

In wonder of now, forgetting to be sadder

I will not relinquish my progress

To stand back and possibly regress

Get behind me dark! I'll not give you way

Praying now in the brightness of day

Beautiful Silence

By D. Sager, published on Jan 15, 2012

Evening unexpected, a happening unforeseen

Things all new, before not a thought

Following the wild road

Only going where I don't plan

Beautiful silence, the wind not whispering a thing

as it plays with your hair.

Beautiful silence, the moon quietly casting shadows

of our hands dancing together

Beautiful silence, the clouds a captive audience

to our tryst by the sea.

Seeing miracles as I let go

Holding you close a myth is born

The night still young with untapped energy

Laughter... (more)

Them

By D. Sager, published on Jan 12, 2012

I will never be without them, they follow me everywhere, when I feel they have finally gone, with vengeance they find me again. Forcing themselves on me, insisting I acknowledge them. I can scarce resist their efforts, so enduring and persistent they have become. I give them place, being preeminent in my existence, being associated always with me, my companions, never to leave. I entertain them now, with some resistance. I allow them to have their way with me, to work me into submission. As I give way to them, I stand back, in my mind wondering, perhaps this the way I must go, to walk with... (more)

Angel, Part 6

By D. Sager, published on Jan 11, 2012

Driving her to the club once again, so tired from working all day and watching her all night. We parted with our usual exchange of kisses and hugs. I drove away, looking back at my Angel, her innocent looks were slowly changing, leaving a traces of fear and emptiness. My Angel, I want to take you away from all this. Gathering myself, like I always did when I had to leave her, I drove away slowly. The day I drove away faster than I came to her would be the end. Halfway home, my phone is ringing...its Angel, “Baby, don't come back, I’m staying here.” “What!” I screamed into the phone,... (more)

Back To Back - The dissolution of a marriage

By D. Sager, published on Jan 9, 2012

Back to back that's how we started,

fighting the whole world, we never parted.

Then came new life, shafts in the quiver.

We fired them off, our crops never withered.

Along came the wolf, death he swore.

He limped and lied to get through the door.

He consumed you with his intellectual abandon,

my back now unguarded, my heart saddened.

I tried for months to retake the hallowed ground,

but you were too far gone, never to be found.

Lost and spinning, exposing my nakedness,

I struggled grimacing, my life hard pressed

Cold Water, Dry Land

By D. Sager, published on Jan 8, 2012

Trying hard to find water in a dry land. A parched, dry, burning throat tortures me. My lips, peeling like mud flakes, baked by the noon heat. My eyes, surrounded by lines, sun induced deep cracks. Life was there at one time, now, only the memory of life conveyed in the carved, hard mud of me, a dry lake. Then a soft wind blows, the temperature drops slowly, a coolness invades, and the clouds gather promising a new thing is on its way. Soft drops escape at first, slowly building a faceless mob. Each drop makes a mark, dimpling the ground. The little craters overflow and begin to... (more)

The Criminal In Me

By D. Sager, published on Jan 6, 2012

Resisting impulses to do and to numb,

Trying my best just to overcome

The criminal in me

I'm not hard by glance, at first sight,

But only I can know the plight

Of the criminal in me

A forlorn soul, tied to earth by pain,

Inside he seeks to make life pay,

The criminal in me

How many times I asked to be free,

All in vain, no one can see

The criminal in me

Addictions to things both seen and not seen,

Leaving all behind to find those things

The criminal in me

I look for peace but yet I must... (more)
