“Ten Thousand Prayers.”

I have loved you so, so much
You have ripped my heart to shreds.

I have been the only one listening
You have belittled my open hands.

I have given all that I am to you
You have tarnished my core complete.

I have held your hand through all the darkness
You have spit in my face with contempt.

I have prayed for you ten thousand times
You have lied to my face like you lie to your heart.

I have worshipped the ground you walk on
You have rejected me more times than I can count.

I have put your needs ahead of my own
You have broken my fragile heart on repeat.

I have patiently accepted all your steps forward and back
And you lie down silent in your bed of lies.

One response to ““Ten Thousand Prayers.””

  1. May our prayer lives never be extinguished.
