v. Knees

July 11, 2011

Every night
before she sleeps
she gets down on her knees
and prays.
There, bowed at the feet of her God,
she pleas
for it to all be over soon.
She sees, she feels
his awesome power
by the light of the moon
and she closes her eyes
and clasps her hands
as he enters her,
hushing her,
and she breathes him in
swallowing the seed of her God’s love.
