Cries that echo
no longer feed my torture.
I am my own demise
and that screams absurdity.
I folded in pieces on my knees.
I climbed in terror,
sweat pouring from my essence.
From my cage ran the divine.
I drank light,
corruption was taken from my eyes.
While collapsing in holy mud,
my palms sift through colored sands.
A seductress robbed my spine,
Have you ever remained loyal to an unworthy love?
Then that was not love!
Have you ever sought solace in arms that weren’t there?
Then kissed without lips?
Well…welcome to loneliness.
I spiraled in lies and confusion,
all the while my eternity flamed in peril.
