God revisited I

July 4, 2009 at 7:54 pm Leave a comment

I’m eight, maybe nine

eyes skyward through

the living room window

the slow boil of betrayal

The night before

I thought I understood belief

and its power to move mountains

my eyes burning holes

in the sky, looking for any sign

of Jesus

The power wasn’t in me

as I thought

When night fell

I didn’t pray

I swore I’d never pray again

I let God die

inside me
