Crying from the Ground

Dead to transgression,
Ignored by the Love.

A Wife held by hell,
Ignored from Above.

The Husband comes bid
Her to come and die.

She cries out to Him,
“I just can’t get by.”

Missing Her problems,
He’s deaf in all ears.

Or so it may seem.
Perhaps He can’t hear,

When the blood of Her brother
Overpowers Her scream.

If only She’d say,
“Love, please make me clean.”

“The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground.”
