the altar
02:47:33 AM Thursday Feb 22, 2007


the altar

Body thrown against the ground

I lay at the altar of you

Candles burn on either side of the mantle

And wax covers the ground

Dripping from the altar

That I built for you

I have built an altar

To your memory

10 feet high and 10 feet wide

The coldest marble

The whitest shade

I have built an altar in my bedroom

And when I wake up at night I lay at the feet of it

And when I go to sleep

I light the candles

Red and tall

Losing their wax

And I dip my fingers into the wax to burn myself to see if I am still alive

Yet I look at the altar with my eyes closed

I have built an altar

It has a metal gate that wraps around it

Like a Pied Noir cemetary grave

And I cant reach the top of the altar sometimes

Because I keep losing my balance

And I fall back onto my bed

And look at the altar,laying on my side

I have built an altar

Inside my head

I have built an altar

Blocking my door

I have built an altar

And I burn candles on it just for you
