You gave me up.

By Wednesday I became ash,
A cold, grey snow of
Scattered fragments,
Melting into nothing on the wind.

You took back your lent heart
And for forty days and forty nights
Retreated into the desert, deserting me,
For silent penance and prayer.
Pray for me

Your daily devotional.
You are my chosen one.
I am the worshipper at your temple
Or else I must be the devil
Who would, all things give to you,
If thou would only fall down and worship me.
