Sunday 160 - Surrender


He slumped on the steps
of the church
holding his aching head
in his hands.
His skin so red
he nearly blended
with the chapel doors.
“God, help me,” he slurred.

What a punch you packed in 160 characters (including spaces). Sad and touching.

He also might just be severely constipated.

All jokes aside, I really enjoy your writing!
