The Definition of Faith


What is it like to bury a God?
It is to contain your faith within a coffin of its own creation,
a false crucifixion aligned with the erasure of existence;
we will hang you up in the stars like you meant something to us.

What is it like to bury a God?
it is to hold a broken prayer in your fraying hands
and preach an apology to the sentience of this fallen star;
we have always destroyed what we admired because
we cannot breed out our own selfishness.

what is it like to bury a God?
it is to stain glass skin with a reflection of your love
and to hate the flesh that you inhabit because no matter what
you still cannot find forgiveness inside of yourself;
we have woven our fates out of your ashes and our mistakes.

what is it like to bury a God?
it is to try to put you back together with the
broken parts of ourselves,
but we cannot create divinity from the devil's brood;
we can love you all we want but that does not erase
the innocent blood interlaced into this sick faith.

what is it like to bury a God?
it is to forget.
