stillborn

pain
she feels,
though now
in her mind,
why
through birth of child
did death unwind?
where was her God
when,
in her hour,
she needed most
to feel his power,
yet was abandoned
to cold despair,
ignored her pleas,
sobbing prayer.
could it be
he turned away
from her and baby?
maybe.
or could it be
there’s you
and there’s me
and prayers
are just words
that go unheard.
