Unfolded I am

I Unfold
For you
The essence
Of my existence

Bound
In barbed wire
Sealed
With silver salt water

The layers of pain
Peels off before your eyes
My shelter
Exposed for you

I unfold
For you
The predator
Within me

Which feeds on the ashes
Of yesterday
And comforts
Within my fear

I am unfolded
My pastures withered
I stand before you
Unfolded I am
