A Prayer (for Em)

by Mark   Oct 19, 2017

Oh ruler of all worlds
I plead and pray for another
A poetess
One whose sight is dimming
Threatening blindness
Alive with a sense lost
in a senseless world
Colors to wash away
like chalk drawings
in the rain,
through crevices
aligning the cement,
Lost to the underworld.
I pray with all
sincerity this
weary poet can muster,
Cleanse the windows
so she can see.

Unaware of the appearance
of her eyes
I imagine the duet
glistens and shines
Alike her love poems
Each shimmer
a word crafted
from the inner realms
of her heart
Soaring off pages,
Her prose would swim
in the two pools,
Skate on smooth
Hidden at night.
Read my prayer
Oh great one
Drain not those two
heavenly fountains.

Doubter - I have been
of your existence
Divine sculptor,
mounted against you;
Evil upon evil
Alike the suffering
Scribed in her
poems of sadness;
Overwhelming pain
Battered and tormented,
Now demons return
for her sight,
Like shadows
thieving in the darkness,
I beg all reasons
for divine intervention;
Please oh
master of angels
Help save her from

    This is one of the best heartfelt and warm prayer written
    for another fellow poet. I like the layout and the way one
    sentence linked to the next making the read flow smoothly.
    Though its long I felt this prayer has gone in depth am sure
    Em would have loved it and would have been touched by it.
    Hope that this prayer is heard by our good Lord…
    take care
