Loveless

By Donna Dallas

Loveless

When you pull the covers back
reveal every inch of your body
lay naked
dying
cry Jesus
pray he hears you
sweat pours off
the air is cold
stiff
no money
no mercy
the world a knot
you could never unravel
for the sake of trying
the sake of dying
just to get through it
just to get through
