I am tragic, our feelings costly.
You’ve walked this path for thousands of years, wanting me, waiting for me.
We are meant to be, yet I am undeserving.
I demand your very life yet you laid it before the first word was uttered.
I run, hard and fast trying to get away, but you pursue and catch me every time.
I am promiscuous, dancing with the enemy, the darkness calls to me, I play a dangerous game teasing it. So you pour out your light bathing me in sunshine drawing me back to you. Showering me with tenderness.
And yet I still push you away.
I am dripping in crimson rivulets.
The price you paid, the ultimatum given you, the ridges cut into your back a reward of my transgressions,
39 you wore proudly
Promising to do it all over again.
I betrayed you, sold you out to the wolves so you went for the grand gesture.
You spread your hands wide open, welcoming me with each palm sporting a nail driven through it.
Your feet pierced
Your head a crown of thorns.
Dying for a love yet to meet you.
You gave me honor, sacrifice, glory.
You gave me love soaked in your blood.
