They peered through the keyhole!

we sat,
not a sound,
hands folded,
in front of us,
the good book,
lay there,
a monument of gargantuan proportion,
on a laminated table,
in the house of the Lord,
scrubbing us free of our sins,
we were squeaky clean,
you could smell the lye soap,
and sen sens,
i could feel the goose bumps,
eating my flesh,
so dark, so dank,
we rubbed our noses,
for the smell of death was close,
we were near the room,
where the dead rested,
before they were smothered,
in the earth,
from whence they came,
and began their journey,
to new beginnings,
whether good or bad,
good or bad,
we would soon learn of God,
tiny hands fidgeting,
waiting,
intripidation,
anticipation,
who was this man,
who practices his craft,
in a world of fantasy,
mingled with reality,
they flock,
to his words,
like sea gulls ,
to a city dump,
on garbage day,
only to realize,
the sea is,
ten thousand miles away,
we prayed,
hoping our young sins,
would be forgiven,
of innocence,
for we were sure,
we would be sinners someday,
the silence was cold,
as she sat,
piercing our young hearts,
with the words of God,
the silence was cold,
as the dead peered through the keyhole,
the silence was cold,
as i unfolded my hands,
and walked away?

They peered through the keyhole!
