praying out loud

i wish i had the prayer for it
but the words slip through my tongue
i edit and self edit and then self edit that
to see if i end up with something reasonable
sensible, realistic
to ask Him

but language fails and instead i just sit
at the corner of my bed
rocking from side to side

waiting for the inspiration to strike
while i count christmas tree lights
instead of sheep
