Crosses his heart

“May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me (the Lord grant to him to find the Lord’s mercy on that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.”

and for some reason Timothy comes to mind
and he who searches the bible will find
the same.

So
I covered the mirrors
and
said prayers for the dead,
but the words that I spoke
had already been said.

you see
nothing but what I see,
Timothy knew.

Biblical becomes somewhat
cyclical
or should I be cynical
and say not?

when you’re nearer to
what you’re likely to get
than what you’ve got
it pays
to read the bible.
