The Altar of the Damned

December 2, 2008
By Emily Harvey, Houston, TX

I knelt before the altar
To my dark gods,
Drinking deep of the blood
of a soul destroyed,
I lifted my hands
And cried
Salvation.
Candlelit dreams
In shadowed eyes,
Claimed by the depths
And sentence to eternity.
Reflections?
Refraction.
