NO NEED TO PRAY

My blood runs cold with the years which have past through it
curdling from the memories embedded deep within my mind
these thoughts shoot shadows across a silent wall into nothingness
where my tears now gather to make a sea of sorrow -

I cry out into the night for a salvation to come before me
kneel in silence and do penance to this alter covered in gold
they say if you do this happiness will flow upon you also
as the years go by I've knelt many times, and yet wait to be set free

With my mind I try to touch the stars above me.  So I can feel them.
are they so far away from me really, or just another little gem
I walk the miles in silence, for silence to me is all I need to day
there is no need to speak to man, or this god I have no need to pray
