Prayer for the Faithless

We'll always have our sacred death
In turn you'll blink the time away
We'll always have our sacred death
This time you'll find it's ticked away

A benediction for a carbon emission waste
This time round you ran with such haste
To find yourself in the middle of nowhere
Where you ask, think and then go there

The illusory grasp you have on God fleeting
Leaving, I hear you calling out and body
Bloody heart, torn apart, yet still beating
Bleeding from a small hole, simple to feel

Fill you up to the brim of your cup 
Yet you cannot taste it, you can only drink
I feel for you as the rocks tied corrupt
I feel for you as you begin to sink

Climb the ladder back from there
This I promise, this I swear
I'll pray for you at night
May you find solace from your fright

He opens doors, he opens hearts
You just have to have one
I'll keep praying as a start
You keep beating, breathing, no one.

    Maybe we are our own worst enemy, maybe we are truly lost and refuse to be led. Your last stanza is powerful and deep; lots to contemplate. Hope all is well with you Tim. Love Elizabeth

    Anne Lise, thank you very much for commenting. I just want to say that this is more about God and the need for people to find him than anything, I wanted that message to come through :).

    How many times I wanted to be or go somewhere and found I just couldn't. So many things in the way, too many illusions that dampened the dream and and so many times that I got in the way. This reminds me of the fleeting moments we lose as time ticks away. Quite an intense write Tim, it has a subtle message that reaches me! Love, Elizabeth

    Time flees so fast we are in danger if we do not heed today. May you continue in light.
