Bones and Blood

Stripped to the bones.
Blood on the teeth.
Breathing fire.
Sweating out the grief.

Pour the oil.
Light the flame.
Whisper your prayers.
Invoke my name.

Burdens on my back.
Lightning from above.
Thorn in my side.
Peace like a dove.

I fly away.
You’re still in a cage.
One of your making.
Iron bars of rage.

I am saving you.
Yet you throw me away.
I will love you forever.
Even today.
