Prayers in Echoing Space

by Alexis Marie

Sending up a prayer
to Heaven,
hoping to be heard
by Angels
– please fly down
and take away
these burdens?

For the visage of God has been
denied me
by God himself;
when prophets and dreams
die and fade,
who then
to appear in His stead,
if not Celestials?

Can anyone hear
my murmurings up there?

Is my soft voice loud enough?

Will my shouting be heard?

Just where up in Space
is Heaven anyway?

– is anyone out there?
