I pray

I pray for a slow and painful life

Filled with sorrow and fear

Plagued by memories of mistakes

Up till the very end

Torrential darkness to fill the skies

Rain that doesn’t end

A soul burning flame that licks and blackens

The man whom I have been

I pray no joy breaches

The walls I build within

Keep the light out always

Leave me with my sin

I pray any blessings I might have received

Go to those who’ve suffered thanks to me

Send me all their sadness

And a content man I’ll be

Then perhaps, when it’s over

Sometime down the road

I’ll have paid my debts off somewhat

And salvation I may know

I like to write. To observe human nature. To envision what the future might hold. Fingers crossed for immortality and friendly dragons capable of both speech and interstellar travel.
