Needlework

Thread out, thread in
stitch together my skin
with an armlengths
cut of barbed wire.

Thread out, thread in
sew me up from within
to trap all my
wretched desires.

Thread out, thread in
and don’t even begin
to tell me to reach
for the stars- or higher.

Thread out, thread in
today: truth is sin,
and people who speak
from their hearts are called liars.

Thread out, thread in-
I’d rather die, than win
your appraisal for building
a false self-empire.

Thread out, thread in
now I’m closed off again
and attempting to
re-light my fire.
