Prayer




In the silence of night something cracks open,

A light, a prayer, a heart…

Dear God,
You know everything; the measure of the immeasurable, the bounds of the incessant, the sadness I’ve carried with me all those years, the weight of my loneliness, heavy as a dead body, dragging and deformed. My pain, which rises as mountain waves, drowning and crushing me. Take them, please take them from me, I can’t carry them anymore, I suffered and endured and now I beg you, don’t turn away from me, help me find the peace I desperately long for.
