Manic Adoration

Manic Adoration

written by: Scott Thomas Outlar



O God, I want to be overwhelmed

by something sweeter than
the sour grapes
of harvests past

by a symphony sung
from the lips of a choir
that has cast out all sirens

by a single shot
of adrenaline
not manufactured in a lab

O Lord, I wish to be consumed

by the maddened cry
that heralds laughter
beyond sorrow’s edge

by the howling scream
of a righteous wind
come fiercely

by the final plunge
into a vast expanse
promising vistas unparalleled
