One Unanswered Prayer

The carpet by my bed is worn

where I have knelt

every night

begging

for comfort

or a moment’s peace

that I might actually sleep

and forfeit a few miserable hours

to darkness.

I beg to awake

in a different world

where my heart does not

always break

and I am free again

as I was

before I knew anything at all.
