I think maybe
I would have liked
To have been loved
gently
But I sunk
With broken knees at your alter.
Pledged Allegiance
To a false god
Who spoke the Old Testament like it was truth.
And the hands
that were wrapped around my throat
were dipped in holy water
So even in death I was blessed.
he will preach
To all the women he has turned into sin
Say -with a soft caress across my check
That echos and vibrates off the walls
Like the silence after a gun shot.
β€œIf you love me you’ll do this”
Because manipulation comes easy to him
Hand to God
he is your salvation
And no one will ever love you like he does.


- He can’t be your salvation
- Because you already saved yourself
