The Sacrifice by LeahConnor The Sacrifice by LeahConnor
How is life a road
and death an empty hallway?
The tiles on the floor
growing crimson, slowly...
Between the curves of stone
my soul is gone.

How is love that drove me
a sin in realms forbidden?
The guardian in the doorway
granted me no warning
before the gates cracked open
in honor of my choice.

How is death a cage
while that gift is freedom?
In every breath and heartbeat,
another step,
the ghost in mortal flesh,
all that's left when all is said.

A tear that's rolling down
left a burning scar.
Your face is so bruised now
from all this grief;
don't cry, a day will come
of lesson's end,
I shall return
