A Midnight Offering

she's coming
once again for the ritual
armed with her
ceremonial daggers
piercing psychic membranes
inducing confessions
and concessions

eye am blooded in
and bled out simultaneously
crucified against the tapestry as
the Sweet Inspiration
tortures me
ever so beautifully

flaying fraudulent skin
purifying skull and bone essence
disemboweling words from
the pit of my being
churning intestinal fortitude
slow roasted over her fire

i burn as a pyre
sacrificed to the gods of poetry
dripping scripture upon
new aged scrolls
nuanced in crimson plasma

severing all allegiances
serving my penance
as my quill forever prostrates
in honor of the holy crusade
of Mz Vantablack
