The Aztec Gateway

Nightly Devotions

Here I kneel
Before the altar of darkness
Every molecule of my soul
Consumed in devotion
Unutterably reverent
Giving my life’s blood
Out of love impossible
To explain, but for tears
That form in my eyes
That weep for seeing
Beauty beyond my mortal
Understanding of it
I can only let it wash over me
A wave of adoration
Given in utmost piety
Feeling no pain
Only this in deep gasps
Of breath between
My teeth
Speaking in a tongue
Only you understand
To feel you touch my head
And let me know I serve you well
I cannot explain this
Only know it in my heart.
