POETRY Reading: Prayer Of Loss, by Kevin Pike

Performed by Allan Michael Brunet


Prayer of Loss

Oh, Lord, please take away my heart
and tear the foolish thing apart
and put it back again, I pray
so cold and hard that none
may find a way
to enter there again.

Excuse me, Sir, for this bold request
but I must have your very best.
Despite tones too hard to bear,
give this soul your best repair,
but leave it empty.

For emptiness conceals no pride
to be destroyed when a man must divide
from the one who means the world to him.
His hopes, his dreams becomes dim
and he loses her…
