Iíve learned to look past
My knotted hair
And run-down shoes.
Learned to push off love
And donít pray
For prayers, I refuse.

I invite disgrace
Clutching tighter and tighter
Every day and every night
To a sinful picture,
To a rotten secret,
(My deepest delight.)

So there I stand
Swing my door wide open
And watch as bliss runs through.
I heard Death walks behind it
But these dying eyes
Have yet to see it move.

(Though here Death comes,
And there my Spirit goes.)

Now Iíve learned to look past
My torn-up clothes
And its faded hues.
Learned to push off life
But donít pray!
No!
For prayers, I refuse.

I really liked this and I am not sure why as I am really rather baffled by it.
It's concise but powerful all the same. Nice write.

I agree with the previous comment.It has great strength.I do not understand it.Perhaps because this is a reaction to an event/emotion you did not discribe?>Anyway,I liked it .Arthur
