Betraying Time



I do not pray to gods

I pray to the moon

Because she makes no promises

Beneath her light

But she is always there

Peace persisting

In never ending dark

I pray to the stars

Because the battles that compose them

Also collapse them

And that’s the only balance I’ve ever known

In my own

I do not pray to gods

I pray to the night

Urge scientific rules to bend

To justify my trust

In terrifying concepts

Like love

Like unnatural bonds

Eternal states of being and un-being

Boundlessly betraying time

Like the galaxies in your eyes

Like remnants of the minds

We’ll leave behind

When flesh falls away

Pound for pound of worth

Buried in earth

Fire to ashes, soul to dust

I pray to the sun

Because he runs

After only her

Day after day

Forsaking eons

I do not pray to gods

I pray to the sun
