I’m on my knees.
Begging You for faith.
What is wrong with me?
I can’t hear You…
God, answer me.
Show me some sign.
You’re here in my pain?
You feel my suffering?
Yes, I see You on that Cross.
But only my eyes.
Where is my heart?
You’ll give me Yours if I let go?
How, though?
I’ve heard the stories.
But where’s my own?
It takes time?
How much longer?
I feel dead.
I want to be really sorry.
And humble.
But where can I start?
If I don’t know You…
What else can I do?
I can’t hearrrr You.
Just listen?
It’s silent.
It’s only You and me.
I will wait.
But as You look at me.
In my confusion and distress.
Whisper You love me.
Hold me.
And I will be still.

Thanks=] I take no credit, though. All the Holy Spirit! 

And if you feel like your faith has turned into doubt or like God's not there at all, don't give up. Because it's in times like these that all we've got is God and all we've got to do is trust in Him, alone. Throw yourself at Him, and He will catch you with His great mercy and grace. And just know that's He is here...AMEN. =] God bless you!

I wish I could remember the specific wording but here goes:

Art is not art if you know how it ends before you begin.

I really enjoyed this poem!! I sometimes go through the same conversation.
