Crying Out

Crying Out

Crying out for peace
I find myself sore
Beaten
Exhausted

Crying out for sanity
I find myself perplexed
Deceived
Lost

Crying out for a little love
I find myself inadequate
Undeserving
Unable to repay

Crying out for Truth
I find myself believing
Saved
I find myself on my knees

 


 

Church

Outside the doorway
Hyperventilating with a cleaving heart
Frantic
Epinephrine bloodstream
Dilated eyes
Cardiac quandary
Anxiety

Suddenly
A stained-glass doorway
Ripples smoothing over
Pools of evensong
Hallowed prayer

A thoughtful anonymity
Blessed calm
Peace
