Lust.

I feel no guilt, contrition, repentance, or regret.
I seek not forgiveness, absolution, or faith.

But I do pray. Not to the heavens or celestial beings.
I kneel and pray before an altar of flesh and fire.

I kneel before you – as a hypocrite before the gates of heaven.
And ask that you spread your legs, and hear my silent confession.

Anoint my lips and tongue with your holy water.
Feed me your flesh; pour freely from your chalice, sate me.

Our gasps and moans, harmonious incantations, we offer to each other.
Lay bare to me your altar of flesh and fire. Promise to singe my soul.

Accept this consecration as I plunge deep inside you.
Allow our blood to mix, and flow, to the beating of one heart.

I seek not forgiveness, absolution, or faith.
I am a sinner that kneels before you, wanting only to sin forever.

Wow, that's a very powerful piece, Mr. Kane. Intense and deep.
For some reason, this reminds me of a song - "Take Me to Church" by Hozier.

I did understand why you made a connection after listening to the song.
