pleas pleas

empty pleas

crying out please

comfort my weary soul


pleas pleas

no response

from God or man

only numbness

and dismay

worthless despair

no tears I shed

I shed them long ago


pleas pleas

no moving forward or

moving back

please tend my sorry soul


searching feeling

longing knowing

even bitterness of this fruit

i’ve sown

reaped in heartache

loss unknown

no questions answered

no questions asked


pleas pleas

empty pleas

the longing long unknown

please release my soul


no word relieves

the longing and desire

to comfort

only tasteless torment

of the war

i’ve lost

and the life



pleas pleas

my dirty soiled soul

exhaustion too deep

to rise too deep to move


no pleas i’ll make


no going back

no giving back

what trust was lost

please revisit me

no more

please please
