Thy Kingdom Come
by Rachel Martens
Gone. He’s gone. Never coming back. I stare at his gravestone. It can’t be real. Can’t. My stomach is bleeding, my heart missing. I can’t feel it beat. I don’t want it to. I know it’s raining because the droplets stain the stone. Like blood dripping over concrete. Lightning crackles, flashes across his name in the dark.
Why didn’t God save him? I beg Him for comfort, but with no conviction.
Thy kingdom come…thy will be done…
I raise my hands clasped in prayer to Heaven, my knuckles white.
A white flash.
The sick crunch of skull on stone.
