Every time you are in
that troubled space,
your vision is blurred.
Unable to see beyond
where you are,
you exist in moments,
raging at God,
feeling abandoned,
ranting in tears and tantrums
because you are unable
to speak to/with God.
You believe you can no longer believe,
unaware your belief in God is so great
you believe God stopped caring.
