Forgotten Note

The air smells of rain

and the sea

Breathless in the wind

cold down to borrowed bones

that recoil from the horror

while a mind creeps ever closer to the knowing

that rages in skies above

I walk in the rain and am baptized

Even the pain is pleasure

Salvation lies naked in the dark

cold marble her bed

wishing the pillars would crumble

and let in the light of the moon

like they did once before

I found this in the notes on my phone from last July and realized I never posted it. Oops.
