Fish breaking silence (Drowning home)

Help me, Lord God, I'm a dark one...
Now, that I'm  learning to see...
I'm gonna worship a black sun,
but it's the one, made for me.
I find my way through the briar,
I am his beloved bright rose...
there is no hell, there's no fire,
but a deep darkened overdose.
Queen in the doorway, move over,
give me the kicks for tonight...
The Band playing "Crimson an clover",
a pilgrim's in search for the light.
I don't fall anymore, I am walking,
I am held by the flame, that's within...
Underwater the fishes are talking,
grace makes me a fish that can swim...
Satanic shadow of violence...
God is still breaking the spell...
Fishes unbound from their silence,
revealing the ocean of hell.

Book by Patrick Rabe:


Gottes Zelt: Glaubens- und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe

Die Glaubens-und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe sind mutig, innig, streitbar, vertrauens- und humorvoll, sie klammern auch Zweifel, Anfechtungen und Prüfungen nicht aus, stellen manchmal gewohnte Glaubensmuster auf den Kopf und eröffnen dem Leser den weiten Raum Gottes. Tief und kathartisch sind seine Gedichte von Tod und seelischer Wiederauferstehung, es finden sich Poeme der Suche, des Trostes, der Klage und der Freude. Abgerundet wird das Buch von einigen ungewöhnlichen theologischen Betrachtungen. Kein Happy-Clappy-Lobpreis, sondern ein Buch mit Ecken und Kanten, das einen Blick aufs Christentum eröffnet, der fern konservativer Traditionen liegt.
