Infinite

I listen
hear what you really are saying
under the words you speak
the emotions
the pleasing
is there for all to see.
So similiar
in more ways that we can count
it is scary
it is exhilirating
when two can become as one.
There are rules
there are guidelines to be followed
if this shall ever be
an abiding love
for all eternity.

Sacrifice

Each one dressed with virginal care

snow white robes gleam

headdresses that fall

covering their faces.

Each one dressed in blackened hues

suits of ore

top hats cocked

spats all aligned.

Blushing brides

arranged in a row

seeing not the men before them.

Blindfolds are tightened

and hands are bound

girlish giggles stutter through the air

as each prepares for their mate.

The men stand a pace apart

guns raised.

One by one 

they are shot down

life eradicated 

in a ceremony of blood.

High upon the dais

the Jester holds court

squalid and evil

sacrifice made

so he can rule forever more.
