Exorcism

I want nothing from you.

I have made my offerings to the deities,

sacrificed the lamb of my childhood.

I have said the words of prayer

in humility’s stance-

lit the scared fires,

performed the proper gestures

prostrate before the Divine-

and still

you linger

in my heart.

What exorcisms can rid me

of the demon of you

eternally possessing my heart?
