You Stole My God Away From Me
I asked you not to. I begged you to walk away, to leave it alone. I commanded you, I ordered you, I went to war with you. And I died for you. All for nothing. All in vain.
You stole my God away.
I had the keys, but you forced the lock. Relentlessly pushing your way forward, with your fake smile and your deceiving compliments. You tricked your way into my church with your seductive eyes and your cunning plan. Infested my sermon. Kidnapped my preacher. Took what wasn’t yours to take.
And you fed yourself on my rituals. Echoed my prayers. Leaning on my soul. Drained me of the one thing that matters the most. Leaving me with anger and bitterness. Leaving me faithless. Eternally searching and eternally lost.
Now you preach what was once my words. Now you speak of what was once my visions. Now you sing what was once my songs. And now you play your charade to everyone who never asked to either see or hear.
What was once my religion is now the prey from yet another of your raids. You stole it and made everyone believe it’s yours. You claimed it, with a shameless fence and your house of lies. Like you’ve done before and like you will try to do again. It is the nature of a beast and the method of one who has never been stopped.
And I am left to wander. Aimlessly. Wearing the mark of your treacherous handshake as ink on my skin. Carrying the dagger, you pushed in my back, with its cold blade spreading its poison with every move I make. Burning its way, deeper and deeper were my wings once grew.
Never before have I’ve been consumed by such dark void. Never again will I let you in. You stole my God away from me. It is unforgivable. You were cursed by the ones that came before me. You are doomed by the ones who will take my place.
My collision with you is my eternal scar.
It is all I ever can remember.
It is all I never can forget.
