I Will Not Be Yours

Creeping up like a lion to its prey
You want to devour me
Seduce me
Reduce me to that confused little girl I once was

You want me to crave and need this sin of love
That is not really love at all
but a lie
a great defeat
that breeds deceit

Let me go, set me free, rescue me
from this ache in the pit of my being
gnawing
and licking my wounds
and my claws

You have no hold over me and yet
you continue to creep
but I will not be your catch
so leave

I cry out to You who saves, rescue me from the one who hunts me!
Secure me and give me peace
I beg
peace

Wow! How deep and profoundly beautiful. Such a testimony of the power we have over sin and darkness and the hold of Satan on our lives. He is only able to have what we are willing to give Him...through Christ we are more than conquerors. What a moving testimony, thank you for sharing from the depths of your soul.
