Saintly Sacrifice

Listen to Saintly Sacrifice by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Crying Mirrors by (((O)))

Crucify me
While I proceed to bleed your name in rivulets
My veins shall blush to testify
Embrace my discontinuance
As moonbeams haunt a starless sky
Shall make this saintly sacrifice

Memorize me
For this shall be my testament
Should death be deemed prerequisite
So be it
Have made my peace
Confessed my sins
Alleviated deficit
Learned well of my impediment
Devoutly strived for betterment
Revised implicit testament
Exhumed the truth
Foredoomed at youth
My proof of life the age lines of a veteran

Beautify me
Stake your claim upon my grateful flesh, undress and scrutinize me
Break the chains that brutalize me
Tap the vein and make it blush
Flat terrain your aim to flush
Encapsulate the flame of love
Save me from this humanizing

Crucify me
While I proceed to bleed your name in rivulets
My veins shall blush to testify
Embrace my discontinuance
As moonbeams haunt a starless sky
Shall make this saintly sacrifice

Tantalize me
Drown me deep in imperfection
I bequeath each curse a blessing
Underneath the cherry blossom
I perceive a masterpiece
From very top to bottom
Not a leaf of severance need ever be forgotten
Not a flaw to not adore
Through line of sight kind eyes implore
Never more divine a prize
Than one that shines forevermore

Mystify me
Haunt my slipstream
Drift inside me
Heal the rift
Sit beside me
Fingertips to fingertips
Kiss my lips when woe betides me
Know precisely why I weep
In sweetened silence creep
As you lay me to sleep
Nutrify the souls I keep
And should I die before I wake
Then I shall take my final bow most graciously
Thoughtfully and faithfully
Relinquish final gasp
Loosen grasp
Then slip away
To wait for you most patiently
Until the one fine day arrives
Find a way to raise the skies
If I can see
What you can see
Then we can transcend space and time
Gratify this heart of mine
And you will surely see it fly
Search for reason midst the rhyme
All four seasons bid incline
My veins shall blush to testify
In favour of such grand design
As moonbeams haunt a starless sky
Shall make this saintly sacrifice
