A Timeless Sacrifice

A Timeless Sacrifice

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

Take me into your world of mind-altering abyss

Where the only light that is permitted

Is from the glow of the coals

You so freely rake over my heart.

 

Sacrifice my inner child at play

With that demonic touch you fancy

Leaving me with the blame of thousand men

Who walk among the charming.

 

Sell me a pound of brimstone

Letting me believe it’s the medicine

To cure the infection in my soul

But really spreads the disease to loved ones.

 

Give me what I ask

In return I give you more

Then what I should.

 

Let me have what I want

And I will pay you with dirty money.

 

Grant me one more hour

So I can appreciate borrowed time.

This is one of your best yet. I am reading a million things here, which one would you like? From government control to bad religion to relationships. Wow -- this is deep Dale.

Your writing is very thought provoking .... and you are becoming more and more creative with your expressions of those thoughts.

Brilliant.

A thought provoking poem with so many meanings lying behind the words. This is very deep and not your usual style, but it's a good piece of work. Xx
