The gate of hell has swallowed its pain

2015/04/img_0944.jpg

For blessings, for grave

The gate of hell has
Swallowed its pain with
heavy pills of
Saintly blood and royal garb

The night stayed up
The flames watered lo
The enemy of comfort is found
Seated on a fine gaze

The silence of the free
Is the happiness of a corrupt race

The passion, lustful kiss
Is the crumb, the banquet with

Who would faith despise
The harmless gate?
Who would courage defend
With martyr’s plague?

A fearless love, at a
Mother’s breast
