god's voicemail

An endless cacophony
Of whimpering and begging
Pleading for point
Ineffable in answer
Leather hitting raw flesh
Sobbing cut short by
the ignorance of empathy
Screaming of those who
cannot stomach the light
Desperation in a state
of disarray and decay
Thuds against torrid rails
Crimson choir of screeching
Footsteps spilling over
Willing into the inevitable
Cries to be forgiven
and to be forgotten
Rattling of medication
Stress becomes excess
Metal cold in shaking hands
Despondent until defunct
