Bathing in pain and gnashing of teeth

grimace from sin disregarded.

Misplaced faith and honor

to a fallen monument.

Screams of horror

behind screams of delight.

Slithering, constricting glassy eyes

staring before pouncing.

Torture never comforted

Where is my neighbor?!  I  growl.

Tell me of the love of God.

The thirst only they could fill

I am in torment.

I am in torment.
