Like Leaves To a Chasm

by Regis Boff

It is not enough to say all is lost

When my love is that which God will toss

Just out of my reach for all my days

Laying grief upon me in so many ways

It was wrong to invent a world where one must fathom

Hearts being dropped like leaves to a chasm

For when I arch my back and scream, “No take me”

My God just stands there as a tree
