Sacrifices for a loss by AzAbove

Poem

I have burnt offerings at sacred altars
Lit candles and burnt incense for you
Repeated insufferable incantations
Sang hymns and prayers
I have sacrificed blood of numerous species from the animal kingdom
I wore skin of the respected killings
Bathed in streams of sacred blood and holy water
I drank from fountains of your chosen kind
I have performed multiple rituals
I have prayed for you
I recited scriptures from sacred books
I have introduced you to both my God and my ancestors
And you dare leave me high and dry
With nothing more than goodbye
And no explanation as to why/tab]
