prayer

brush strokes and
spider ink
lift me up and
hold me safe

fairy tales and
candy floss
colour the sky
from grey to blue

others’ greed and
others’ needs
hold me in suspension
over the abyss

floating in a whirlpool
of events not quite
of my own making
head barely above the water

listening to the music
of my heart
beat after beat
growing weaker all the time

brush strokes and
spider ink
please
lift me up
and keep me safe.
