Prayer

image


Grab hold of me
Grab hold
Grab me and hold me close
Where the edge isn’t visible
Sharp
Crumbling
Bottomless
Feel me shaking and pull me tighter
Against your heart
Whisper directions
Write them on my skin
Bring me back

 

Prayer/written October 23, 2006

(I found this poem from 2006 languishing in my poetry folder. I’m clueless as to what prompted the writing. I wonder if I was getting a glance at today.)
