And in the blur of suffering
I’m an infant who cries out,
Despite the Mother incessantly cradling,
Unable to perceive anything more than dusky figures.
I only peer into shadows,
Unresponsive to the vivid red of Love
That embraces at my very core.
I look outward to the empty shapes
When Love’s pouring Himself
Mournfully, compassionately, completely
Into the void of my mistrusting heart.
