I got cold
I got burned
The melting and molding, hardening my bones.
I am gone.
You say, “Where are you,”
Find me then.
Kill the dragon guarding my tower.
Rescue me from my prison.
Capture my soul and turn me whole,
Please just don’t leave me here to rock slowly against the cold wall. The slow drumming sounding in my skull gets louder as each day passes away. You say you care, yet here I am still locked and afraid of opening my eyes. It’s the hope that kills me, the burning freezing curdling my blood. Slowly drawing out any sense of self left. A bag of bones and blood is my fate.
You say you love me. Then take my pain away,
revive my dying mind,
carry me to safety
turn your lies into truths into action.
Show me what I’m worth. What’s my price? How much are you willing to pay for a shattered dream?
A tainted meal.
A broken reel.
Something that cannot heal.
Will you come by? Should I expect you soon or will I have to prune in waters so deep it consumes almost all of me. Please, don’t let me drown. I want to be found and fed, caressed and put to bed. A good night’s warm dreamless sleep, counting no sheep, just the way it should be. The way I want it to be. So, will you save me? Fight the dragon to defend me? Climb the tower to claim me? Liberate me from these confines that bind my aching soul. Because Because…
I can’t fight alone anymore, I have no more strength or zeal.
I’m just so tired
What little energy I have left to keep my head bobbing above the water is almost depleted.
Please, please come soon.
