Your Mistress Defiled

Has your violence

 taken you to places

 I’ve not been?

 

Or driven you

 to things

 I’ve not seen?

 

Was your soul

 mired in conflict

 once raised from the dead?

 

Were your walls

 built to fortify

 excuses and blame?

 

Have your choices

 been forged by

 damnation and fear?

 

Did love matter at all

 when it cried

 through the pain?

 

Could you still hear its voice

 on those darkest

 of nights?

 

Are those places you

 conquered

 in tribute now shamed?

 

Did your victims

 kneel down

 their heads bowed in defeat?

 

Was mercy rejected

 your mistress

 defiled?

 

Has your violence

 taken you to places

 I’ve not been?

 

Or driven you

 to things

 I’ve not seen?

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
