bottomed out

“Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.”  Psalm 130:1

when i bottom out
in life, and my pain
echoes off the walls
dripping with my tears,
you lie down at the abyss,
listening until you locate
me in the shadows, then
stretch out your hand
to lift me into the light
of your grace and hope
