Sacrifice


Sacrifice

The darkness
and moonlight
made the blood
look like ink
as it ran down
the church steps.

His chest heaved
from the exertion
and exhilaration.
He caught his breath
as tears of relief
began to run
down his cheek.

His mouth formed words
Without sound “For there
Is no forgiveness of sin”
he stood, dropped the knife
next to the body and whispered
“without the shedding of blood”
