Feall (Betrayal)

Thrice denied by Saint PeterSt. Peter Statue in Antigua, Guatemala
By the time the rooster crowed,
I stood shackled, bruised, and bleeding,
Immobilized by betrayal,
Head bowed, shoulders stooped, core broken.


The sting of the whip,
Welcome relief to the knowledge
That the one to whom I was closest
Chose to turn his head and heart away from me
At the very moment that I needed him most,
My suffering, my pain, unwelcome reminders
Of a promise made in a happier times.

Executioner's Block in Cartagena, Columbia
There will be wailing, and gnashing of teeth,
But I will be cleansed by the light of day,
And you entombed in the darkness.
