it is the third of october
and i am building a castle for us
out of feathers, bird bones, 
ocean waves and library book pages. 
anything to keep our feet from
touching the ground.

you are sin, he whispers
and his fingers trail cold fire 
down my side, scorching flesh
and freezing bone;
brittle pieces of me shatter
as they hit the stained linoleum floor.
don't wake me from this nightmare.

i whisper a nursery rhyme 
as i walk down our
autumn path.
kamikaze leaves fall, trailing
fire as they throw themselves from
the branches, down, down,
to cold pavement below.
your words echo in my mind
a constant reminder
that i am sin

but you,
you were
never
god

How strange! I just finished reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman today and came across this poem. Sent a chill down my spine. Brilliant and powerful.
