NaPoWriMo Day 8 – Altar

Altar

Lay yourself down for your gods
Pretend their demands are declarations
Loving and encouraging rather than
Toxic abuse filled in every word
I try to block out, shove away
As their waste seeps out
Want everlasting claim to victims
Without wills of their own
Lay yourself down for your gods
Pretend their internal demons aren’t true
Blood and black are just fallacies
I create to drive a wedge
Between you and them
As you waste away on their altar
Happily ever till death
