my god

my god is a body that lies across the water
the price of her protection is all a man can give
while the arrows fly in the heat of the slaughter
nothing less will do if you truly want to live

my god is a heart that beats in the darkness
she waits for us to come to her and light the sacred flames
many times I’ve prayed for an end to this starkness
but what she wills is what will be and gods enjoys their games

my god is a spirit that frolics in damnation
she calls on us to sacrifice our blood to her own need
nothing we can do will lessen her predation
not while she can caper and watch her people bleed

    ABikerToo! Yoo haz ben missed!!!

    “My god” sounds like someone you definitely don’t want to meet in a dark alley. If I put “across the water” in to play..she’s on your side of the Atlantic..not mine.. so I may be safe for a lot longer than need a “creepy” tag for this poem… 😀 😀

    • I have no idea where “across the water” is, or whether it means like a bridge. But that’s the way the line first came to me, and I saw no reason to change it 😀

        Since all poetry is open to interpretation..I’m interpreting her as being on your side and the bridge is closed for repairs.. 😆 😆 😆
