There is No God

You offer prayers?
You suggest that god’s plan is unknown.
I want to rip your words from your lips.
I want you to feel;
Raw
gaping wound
once where my heart lay
now only dust
murderous rage
and hatred.
You offer prayers?
You think those will succor me
night after cold night
when I hear my child call to me?
Voices upon the breeze
whispers of pain cooed in my ear
yet when I turn to look
my child is gone
nevermore to be seen.
You offer me prayers?
You try to wrap your arms around me
I shudder in disgust.
You think your weak platitudes
spouted like the holy bible
are comforting?
Your false idol’s words fall upon deaf ears.
I no longer believe…..
Your prayers.
Your god.
Your anything.
You lie.
And you sir.
And you.
Hang your head in shame.
These deaths?
They fall upon you.

Untitled Poem #15

Laughter stopped.
Childish giggles replaced with whimpered fear.
Calls for help.
Pleading for rescue.
While he did pace.
What were they waiting for?
Black hellish pain
no amount of prayers
no amount of condolences will erase
keening wails
hearts shredded
no way to be repaired
voices still rise
no no we won’t let go
it is our right to carry.
No one is saying take their guns.
No one is denying there are responsible ones.
But…..
What about safety checks?
Background checks?
Taking a gun safety course?
All things easily done.
Why do you need to purchase an assault rifle?
What animal needs shooting with that?
Man.
That animal.
My tears run unchecked
hands raised
feeling pain from afar
so strong
it knocks me to my knees.
Screams heard
felt
through trembling earth;
there is no coming back.
There is no just reward.
There is no way forward
when voices are raised
to protest any safe guards
instead of clamoring to ensure
this bullshit never happens again.
