Faithlessness

Like death, a pall overcomes
Covering every thought in darkness
Every breath becomes painful.
The unknowing,
The unbelieving,
My faithlessness streams through
Curling up in strange places
Never finding home.

Daytime comes with no relief.
The sunshine only blinds,
I still chill in the warm air.
Where do I go?
What will I find?
Am I waiting?
Is the wait over?

Numbness in my limbs
Immobile,
Immovable.
There is no beginning.
There is no end.
My fingers bend
To grip some faint hope.
A diaphanous thread
Invisible to the human eye
Is all I have to hold onto.
