Hallelujah,

One word holding such immeasurable sentiment.

Arms and hands thrust into the sky, pleading.

Cries of wanting, needing! Hallelujah!

Salt staining cheeks like ink spilt across a table cloth, Hallelujah!

Wordless cries fueled by the force of hurt, of longing and raw emotion.

Empty of all sound except that glorious roar,

Hallelujah!

Triumphant,

Hallelujah!

Body shuddering with the last residue of religious ecstasy.

Hallelujah…

Hallelujah.
