Love at the Stake | A Poem by Andromeda

My love binds me to a stake
Each day a new fire burns
I see myself melt away
I feel my twists and turns:
Ghoulish laughter fills my ears
I’m part of a macabre dance
With music playing from far off lands
As spears my body lance:
Forbidden tears, forbidden screams
Let ritual laughter ring
As soul sets out on journey new
To find my hidden springs.
