Break me, Father

For I am unworthy.

My heart is calloused; prideful;

Dirty.

Flood me with you, drown me in peace

Make empty my thoughts and dreamless my sleep

I cannot swim through this, I cannot climb out

I need you to break and

Remake me

Somehow.

Boil

I wonder, wonder

Why I slumber

Veins that cannot cut our lumber

See release and breathe a piece

Why am I burning up so

callously?

Innocence, and hardened wit

Sonder-mist and weeping tins

I break my ice cubes on my chin

Slobbering fitfully over my wins

Breathing tumult, wishing

For

Peace
