He only talks to god when his phone rings.
A quick prayer in hopes that it’s you.
She might be the reason he loses his faith.
You see, God keeps missing her cue.
He often finds himself down on his knees.
Trying to think of something to say to god other than please.
Please. Please? Please…
On the brink of hysteria.
Can’t do it.
Can’t make it
can’t take it! can’t breath can’t think can’t…
her name appears on his screen.
A wave of ease.
His breath released.
His faith regained.
Just two words and his beliefs are sustained.
