Underneath The Awakening. Fighting the ego self.

By soul_versing




I screamed, to the top of my lungs.

 When brokenness takes form of laughter,
and tears flood the days of nothingness.
 My shadow lies to the image in the mirror.
 As though, I'm not the reflection that is shown.

 "Shadow work", says the Devine.
step further in to your true self
 and be completely uncomfortable in you,
 through you, you shall heal.

and the next.

 But the Devine didn't speak of raw truth
--nor bundled up emotions.

 My past,
 clinched firmly in my fist.

i long for peace,
i crave comfort--
but misery has other plans...

 where the shadows creep
 so does the shadows form
 turning this ratchet heart  
in to shattered pieces.

 Where's your God ...now?!


lost to the nothingness within.

A butchered heart,
 long before it turns to ice.
