A Godless Experience

I conjure the risk and live where I walk; what can you say?
You speak of the soul and your holy experience; well, whom have you tasted?

Where are the scars on your submissive hands; you never share.
You shoot imaginary blanks, and pierce the tendon; muscle of my heart.

Give back my time; and I’ll pretend we didn’t.
