Potion

I know not all the magic
she possesses, what
miracles she can perform.
 
When I crawl to her
and present my wounds
(as a Penitent,
seeking absolution,
presents his sins
to his Divinity),
from some hidden cabinet
or secret drawer she draws
a homemade potion
(which doubles as an
analgesic lotion).
She applies it liberally
to all my pains and sorrows,
and I am healed. She
pours it down my parched throat,
and all my thirsts are quenched.
I need no further evidence
of her holiness,
nor could anyone dissuade me
with any arguments or proofs.
