Deity offered feast of pious gifts,
Acolytes enter state that is sublime.
Supplicants kow-tow with rigid crossed wrists,
Writhes of delight that both renew and bind.
Gifts of the flesh forged in fires of love;
Gift of self offered in entirety.
Sacred acts sanctified from high above,
Spiral up to end in heated frenzy.
Eros, Venus, and Persephone sweet,
Swoon at your altars sure as my heart beats.
