In Your Eyes

In Your Eyes December 7, 2018
By Susi Bocks

In your eyes

god exists
so I was told

my mama said
to find you

had to reach
for you

connect to
the spirit

searched the bible
went to church

talked and talked
to the heavens

always silence
and dread

you didn’t like me
my sins too great

you loathed me
and shunned me

tore me
to pieces

the loving god
hated me
