The Loser’s Prayer

Too much wrong, not any right
Living through the fight or flight
I hear you calling as I’m falling
Through the darkness of worse than night

The gates of hell greet the valley of lies
Evil laughs at the sounds of your cries
Angels are deaf and Gods are blind
And I fear we are broken for all time

Can you hear me through this space
I feel your tears fall on my face
I hear your voice call out my name
I cannot hold you or make you safe

Can you hear all my songs of love
May they come to you on wings of a dove
I feel your pain; it is my own
We’re forgotten even to heavens above

At night I will whisper your name
To absent gods that never came
To save us from their vicious hate
That tore apart your better fate.
