On “Unanswered” Prayers

Ashes drifted lazily,
carrying a message to the heavens.
It said:
“Who needs your help
now that the flames of hell
have reaped another soul
from the useless hope
in my unheard prayers?”

The tears of a child
fell from the face of a man,
who’s burning anguish
was answered with rain.

Lost in the drizzle, he cursed the stars-
Never realizing there were no clouds in the sky.
