I Remember I use to Pray

flowers_wonderwordz_16I remember I use to pray
That you would take the
Pain away.
Lonely nights
on my knees,
Wet, salty tears
Mixing with my shame,
Fell like great rapids
As I pleaded for mercy.
The agony too great,
The suffering too substantial-
I could not help but feel
Each breath scratched at my throat,
And I would watch the world
Spin as I gave away into
A perverted Euphoria.

But you saved me
In Seven Days and loved me
For more than
those Seven Days,
And will forever love me,
Until my days are short,
And I can finally
Look upon your divine face.
