Rotten

I wrote this poem a while back.

I used it for a Nav Works Challenge: Tips of Rhyming: Go Natural

Rotten

You sigh
cry
die from the savage
ravaged
pilgrimage of desecrated antics
you panic
manic
frantic intuition led astray
betrayed
afraid to be alive
you strive
survive
arrive at the altar of profane gods
marauded
frauds who worship abuse
You excuse
bruise
use the body now –

What once was a sacred shrine,
is just a temple in decline.
