Poem: Not Enough to say

by Regis Boff

It is not enough to say,
“All is lost.”
When my love is that
which God has tossed,
Just out of my reach
for all my days.
Laying grief upon me
in all known ways.

To invent the world,
where one must fathom,
hearts dropped like leaves,
to a black chasm
I arch my back and scream,
“No, take me.” But
My God just stands there like a tree.
