Masks

One more sacrifice in a time of heroes.
Climb the steps of the martyr proudly,
while shrugging off the stones of truth.
Testimony is a lie that is spoken on the cracked lips of the tortured.
Demented claims rapping against swollen tongues and rotted teeth.
Is this Jesus?
The Christ?
Ask the reflection staring back through the mirror.

Until…

Vision blackening
Falling
Spinning.
No savior.
No hidden messiah.
Simply a man
A woman
A child
A divine demon
Glaring at you with your own dead eyes.
