alone she stands and waits this day

no words, no smile
no looks this way
this temple is empty this day

no prayers, no lamps
no bells, no gongs
not even a deity today

this divine abode sits naked like a newborn
wrapped in the bloody remains of a womb this day

no caretaker here to wash off the scum
no one to wrap her in a bundle today

no embracers remain
they left with the crowd, without a good bye

this temple alone stands and waits
she waits for the deity
may haps he will return one day
and bring back the priest and the crowds, he will

the temple without her deity lives a purpose less existence
alone she stands and waits this day
