Innocence in purgatory

I need to feel
Something
Is it that impossible
Improbable to need
To know where I am going
Who I will be tomorrow?

I look into the sunset
And feel the breeze
Taking hold of everything I was
This alien takes my name
Walks about in my being
Disillusionment flows forward
Spewing foreign rhetoric as actualization

What happened to the dreamer
Inside that iced heart
Where is the person
Unafraid
Chosen?
Nothing here is as it was

Today I died and woke
To this disposition
My spirit carries the sadness
Of lovers fallen
Betrayal and broken pieces
Bittersweet memories

Who am I to question
The higher purpose of my trials?
A person scorned by religion
Falsehoods
Clinging
Hoping
Breaking

If you exist you will find me again
The fire is low
But not extinguished
My mind, heart and soul long for you
And I know I am being carried
But still
I need to feel the hold
Through the numbness

Raped of my belief
My trust
My gentleness
Wake me out of this shell
Let the fallen petals
Nurture the seeds
Of my renewal
Or let me die soon
Before the flame is no more
