Sovereignty In Pain

A line traces back to this cell
The crusted memories conceive them all
Deeper in agony, scorned and embraced
Weaker in sympathy, forgotten and disgraced

To allow
To allow
A shedding to allow
A fade
A fade
To exemplify a fade
In depth
In depth
In me, in depth

There is a distance that will not be bridged
There is an emptiness that will not be fulfilled
Between here and now
Between this and how

Metaphorically stranded
Reasonably abandoned
I knew it were true
I knew we weren’t you

To give
To give
A sacrifice to give
A loss
A loss
To welcome a loss
In pain
In pain
In sovereignty, in pain
