to a freedom i cannot know

shake me from my stillness
i prayed for you
i prayed for a more open heart
and here i am. closing it off.
i prayed to be awakened to a different point of view
i broke everything i made to humble me
i took in my hand the seed of life
and threw it into my acid heart
burned its flesh till it became a part of me
i took from you some dream
that we could be together
and i covered it with poison
i drank the liquid left over from it
i would like to have died at that moment
but i kept living
in this pain of poison in my own heart
in this life i keep dying and i do not experience a freedom from it
when will my soul float free
when can i temper disease that is me
