His Scars

Drop by drop

bleed out the pain

Red erasing

the Stain

I feel forever

on this heart of mine

 

Jewels, red jewels

dripping like rain

leaving behind

a stain

Spilling ever

like the spilling of wine

 

Day by day

the darkness drain

Scars replacing

this Stain

beneath the surface

I try to perfect

 

Slave, enslaved!

Alluring chain -

self-salvation

my stain

Head to heart

the disconnect

 

****************

 

Nails, sharp nails

a surface pain

Blamelessness taking

my Stain

Feeling forever

the sin that was mine

 

Jeer, they jeer

This gift they disdain:

the sacrifice for

their Stain

Never tasting

the blood that was wine

 

Night, that night

Darkness was slain

Blood erasing

All stain

tearing in two

the disconnect

 

Done, it’s done

His bleeding obtained

the payment for

the Stain

making the scarred

unblemished, perfect

 

**************

 

Blood for blood

His death my gain

No longer shamed

No stain!

This Man of Grief

He feels my pain

Blood spilled for me

and not in vain

Accepting what

I cannot explain

No more darkness

No stain!

 

My heart is whole

His scars remain

A testament:

THERE IS NO STAIN

The End
