God Of Nothing

Life, The Universe, and Everything…

The God of…

April R. Denton

Just a glimpse,
the taste of sin.
Breathing in your pain,
the God of nothing now.
One lost soul,
a million miles.
The forgotten,
the forsaken.
Just an empty shell,
the God of nothing now.
a promise upon your lips.
The anger swells,
politics of the purpose.
I am your God of nothing now,
the ruler of many and of none.
The beginning of the end,
the sacred soul,
leader of the damned.
Their God of their nothing now,
the one they seek.
A refuge, a sacred place,
savior eating their sins.
The darkness calling,
you pulling from underneath.
Their God of everything now,
a born redeemer,
the sacred son.

Written for me by my beautiful friend, April R. Denton, a wondrous poet. You can follow her blog at http://theblackheartpoetess.wordpress.com or on Twitter at @BlackhrtPoetess.
