Invited to the banquet

A baptism of suffering

A twisting of the nails



Offering luscious fruits

Spices of your garden

A silver salver of wisdom

Thorns and briers


You want me to agree

Recant my position

Compromise my beliefs



A ripening of eloquence

Bereft of decision

Your golden bowls

Of myrrh


Alone in a empty room

Desperate for a path forward

A sip from the crimson stream

Agony’s fountain.
