Song of Sacrifice 2

You hold the knife

as one holds

a fallen fledgling,

Your eyes command my approach,

and as I shuffle,

the shackles sing a

discordant, jangling dirge


I weep,

but whether for my soul

or for your cruelty,

I cannot say.


I held you.

Kissed you.

Loved you.

Sang you to sleep in my arms.


Your smile transfixed me,

and the hidden coils of your flesh

felt warm in my hands.


Your lying mouth

wrought cries from the core of me.

And like fresh clay

you molded me into a sacrifice,


Sharpened your knife

on your heart of stone.


Pray make it quick, love.

I will wait for you

in the

frozen abyss…
