Creative Work


Benjamin, 22

Can you hear me screaming
under the mask that’s melting away?
I’ll praise you with words,
but I still sin in actions.
God, I need you in everything.

Confused is an understatement;
this world moves faster than light.
I feel alone, afraid,
not sure if I need you
more than I actually believe.

Tonight I close my eyes
and pray to hope.
Relieve me so I can inhale,
and let these thoughts slip
as I embrace your comfort.
