Church of Red

Updated on February 12, 2012

Church of Red

In my heart

is a church

where a little man

is always playing

the internal organ.

This church,

this house of God

inside me,

is under attack.

The devil

breaks through

the stained-glass windows

and tells the man that God is dead.

He knows this is not true,

and continues to play

the blood-filled organ

as the devil screams

and stomps

and breathes fire

in anger.

You cannot break me,

King Demon.

This church is full

of love

and you’re not welcome here.

What did you think of this poem?
