Pray Your Gods

This song is like a dirge in some regard, perhaps not particularly “happy” a tune. One must learn to appreciate that without letting it take you down. It is, however, a beautiful poem. The lyrics paint a story. I can see the lover making his appeal to his beloved.

“Pray your gods who ask you for your blood,
For they are strong and angry jealous ones,
or lay upon my altar now your love…”


I’ve realized that the lens through which I view the world, is poetry.
