The Fallible God

The Fallible God

(Originally published in the 1973 Fall edition of Windfall.)

Written by Ken Carman

I care more for you
Than you let me be
How strange that my feelings are something
Yet nothing at all

For I am the loner
Even with your millions of friends
and your presence
Still my existence is unimportant to you

The exit signs have all lit up
Yet I refuse to leave
For you linger in my conscience
Entice the air I breath

When I am gone
This person called me
Shall wander down your alleyways of hate
For if my faults were too much for your love
They were too much for anything at all
