Exorcism – Author Daryl P. Hall


If you would dig deep enough

You’d see letters etched in stone,

Emblazoned there in granite grey

That speak your name alone.

Chiselled out inside of me

In the fabric of my soul,

Is your name recorded

Close to this heart you stole.

Unashamed, I weep before you

As my naked pain flies free,

It’s still there and it’s still breathing

On the other side of me.

No longer there inside my head,

Thoughts recited out aloud.

It used to feel oppressive,

Hearing the voices of the crowd.

But now the flame of agony –

Those crackling fires of pain,

Have all been doused and dampened down

By the sweet refreshing rain

That pours down from these eyes of mine.

Cascades in torrents, so I learn

That most important truth to me,

Sometimes the sting ignites the burn.
