SALMAN

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. 
Amen. 

She comes to confess, golden hair and sundress, alabaster skin, a scent of sin, Rosy cheeks, glorious peaks…

She comes to me.
Confess my dear child, for I am eager for him to wash your sins away, confess dear child for the rapture is now, today.

“Forgive me father for I have sinned,  have mercy upon my weary soul. 
Forgive me father for I have sinned, the church bells are ringing.. I hear them call..”

What magic is this? And who’s this fairy? That glimmer is not to be dismissed, but it’s sure as hell going to make me worry.

Come dear child, help me with my habit, let me start a new religion, lets start a new habit.

From that carafe you hide, I drink my wine, into that mouth I will preach prayer, and on those lines I have to feast, maybe concur maybe defeat, but oh i have to dine.

On this alter we shall lay, eternity is a day, my rosary will be your nous, your touch gets my skin loose, oh I felt so bereft, for the soul to be stolen, grieve form of theft, breath life into my heart, for this communion, a sin is a start, so let me be within your hair, a mother should never feel despair, sister needs your heavenly bliss, sister needs you to undress.

Forgive me father for I have sinned… I prayed to you all the time.

NORA

Forgive me father for I have sinned… I prayed to you all the time.

And it’s all I’ve ever known. Praying. Whether its through formal holy practice or just by speaking out to You. This journey we have been taking has not been an easy one. And surely, will not end with me. Because it hasn’t begun with me. I know I’m not the only one.

We, the children of Adam and Eve just fall into the same trap our parents have. The effervescent temptations of Satan have long been fizzing away in my head. And ultimately it has led me to do this.

Forgive me father for I have sinned.

I know you know my intentions were not to fall into the bottomless pools of desire, but I am weak. I am weak and I never learn. I never learn that chasing after desires makes you greedy. I never learn that momentary satisfaction is all I receive. And I never learn to not make myself drown in regret afterwards.

But what is regret? Is it not the aftermath of misguidance? The giving into the allure and the submissive possessing it does to my mind. How it so nonchalantly dissolves my soul like smoke off a cigarette, dancing devilishly in the atmosphere. I need guidance.

Living being torn into two, the pure under lure, is not easy.

You’re God, You understand.
