Believe in her

by libby   Nov 16, 2006


Today's
Virgin Mary
swallows a pill every night
to keep her clean.
She soothes her fears with skin, screaming
Believe in me! Believe in me!
Believe
in
me!
She orders up acceptance
from drive-thru churches
served steaming and saturated with hypocrisy
but it never leaves her satisfied.
Is it any wonder she turns so readily
to something that makes her feel so loved?

    You were in my favorites from the very first poem I read of yours.
    You are very pretty. :)

    I might just write a poem on your display picture. Heh.

    Take care
