The Altar

By elisa

Reaching back through my soul
I tear my weaken beaten heart
from my sunken chest

tonight I take my love back in my own hands

I alone have come to make the final break
my heart will ever suffer

once you stood a marathon away
gracing my horizon

but time has passed from centuries to eons
sorrow travels slowly through forever
in eternity

I stand here
The Great Pyramid
before the
Devil's hell
God's holy heaven

I take my broken heart
clean the slate of history

shattering the memory of me
leaving nothing more than poetry
