The Tear from the Sky

The ringing of the nail ripping through your hand
Pierces my nerves like an electric shock
Your blood-tattered skin stains my soul a permanent dye
The whip of evil brutality lashes my skin
Blood forced from your body is the scab upon my flesh
Your cries echo a speaker on high bass
Pumping in my head
Your limp beaten body flowing in the breeze
Twists my body into pretzels of guilt
Why would you go through such torture?
I can't bear to see you take my spot
For my sinful crimes
The tear from the sky pushes a wave of water of me
Cleansing me
You have built by hand my foundation
Patched my cracked walls that had water leaking through
Perfectly put a wall out of place
Watched me strip down the wallpaper
Punching out windows
Yet, you still gave the ultimate sacrifice
Mopping up the puddle of sins
Cleansing me

Next Poem


The author writes, “This poem was inspired by the movie The Passion of the Christ. I was moved by this film and I felt a need to write what I was feeling, so others could feel it too without seeing the movie. This is in my opinion one of my better poems because of its meaning to me. I hope you enjoy.”
