Burlesque -

Does he ever hear you?
When you take that position,
When you make that face
close your eyes
fold your hands
turn to him like that.
Does he ever hear you,
or does he ever say something back to you?

When you face the forgiver,
and ask to settle this turbulence in heart.
I hear you, even tho'
your prayers are not for me 
I hear you, as if it's like emulation
as if I'm in between this echo of simulation. 

Turn to me, I might change 
this burlesque in life.
Face me, close your eyes.

  1. I admire the prayer in the end, a hopeful message ~

  2. Ah.. yes.. to close eyes
    and hear.. is often
