Sacrifice

Laying upon the rocky altar

bloody and in chains

Demons cluster at my feet

rejoicing in my pain.

They feed upon my despair, the words woven

they suckle deep at the deceptions I weave

Gorging upon my flesh, my soul

until bloated they fall aside,

To be replaced by some more.

I stare blankly at the mountain above

knowing not the damage done

for the demons have once more come.

And I fall into their dreams, their blatant bullshit

while their claws dig deep, making me wince.
