    dotsPut Them To Beddots

    put them to bed
    all of those unanswered prayers
    just put them to bed, now
    tuck them in tight
    pull the covers up over their
    shining, radiant faces
    sing them a lullabye
    and put them to bed
    creep from the room
    and donít check up on them
    shut the door tight
    and listen to them shriek
    loudly wailing tormented screams
    alone in darkness most putrid
    put them to bed
    listen to them suffocate inside
    silently witness their last gasps for air
    and walk away
    knowing that youíre the only one
    who put them to bed

      Sounds like your talking about God ignoring the pleas. I didnt like the repetitive put them to bed thing. Sorry. It seems like you just picked that metaphor to further add tuck in those prayers and stuff the covers over. I guess it could be additionally something of innocense, since children are the only ones that get tucked in and we're all gods children, but won't assume things by what I read.

    I think the poem gets most its effect from the shock value there, suffocating those unanswered prayers. It's pretty good but not enough to say wow, it was too much put them to bed repetition for me.

      Wow, um... this poem is pretty deep. I don't really understand why you're putting the unanswered prayers in the bed to suffocate, but your choice of words makes the poem really great, the fact that it is questioned says your poem makes people think. And people need to think, I think.
