The Betrayal

 

Kissed, he gave himself gently
Into the hands of those that came for him.
Armed and shielded, they looked and felt foolish,
Capturing this man, standing unflinching
In front of them. 

......His followers fled, fearful,
And he blessed them, understanding,
Knowing in time they would return to him,
Better men, broken by this one moment
Of reasonable disgrace. 

......He stood silent and stared.
A piercing peaceful gaze
That none could endure or resist. 

......It made them nervous,
And fanned the small embers
Of restless anger inside them. 

......They scurried around him,
Trying to create an illusion of capture.
They were unsure of why they were taking him.
But they needed no reason. The night
Was tempered with irrational tension. 

......Cowering in the shadows behind the others,
Judas followed, whimpering, wiping
Frantically at his lips, burning,
As if he'd tasted acid. And all around him
In the maddened darkness, he heard the
Heckling shrill laughter of delighted demons,
And the rattling of silver coins.
