importunity

, we
didn’t invent it
(we can’t pronounce nude)
is this the right language?

remember the time afterward
you asked if it was strange
(that sudden urge) to pray

give thanks for this
lifetime (agreement)
finished in a moment

sometimes (we cry, lord)
we wake up to a soundtrack
in our eye
we didn’t invent

we have to wonder
(,we) creation or myth?
nightgown, or shadow
shapes in Gethsemane?

  1. Oooh this is absolutely divine!❤️ I love the ambiguity and depth of your verse, especially this; ” sometimes (we cry, lord) we wake up to a soundtrack in our eye we didn’t invent.” Beautifully expressed. Thank you so much for participating!❤️

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa
