     these vultures fill my mouth
  the scabs lie to my skin
my blood boils over
in arsenic groves
  and the devil's in the hole
the windows here
are broken eyes
and the walls
are moldy  cold

my eyes bleed hate
for failed prayers
   and the locusts fill the sky
my fingers cut
my words in blood
and show me where to go
  my world has gone
in waves of no
     these vultures fill my mouth

The ugliness of the world are expressed vividly and powerfully in your words.

Many will identify with this one--the line that slapped me was,

" eyes bleed hate/for failed prayers...." MAN. Don't I know it--it seems the struggles compound and build on each other, and God is silent...

Let's hope things improve for all of us.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
