Rosary Beads and Your Lovely Eyes
The force of the thunder rings in my head,
Racing, echoing on rushing thoughts.
I’ve mapped the pain from my fingertips,
Still trembling for what I’ll be condemned.
I know you’re there, I hear your breathing
But I won’t look up, lest the lightning hits
And I’m coerced into focus once again.
Devotion’s key may be for the devout
But under the laws I cannot seek refuge.
I long to stand up and look into your eyes
And leave these rosary beads behind.
