Of Structure and Grace Formed

I would wish myself a wall,
a fortress of forgotten time,
of stone surfaces in buildings built.

No towers there trapping me,
nor my heart so horridly bound,
And I not melted in marbled moments.

No faked fallacy,
No whispered want.

With the earth my eternal chamber,
A burial beneath the brandished bodies,
and asphalt not asking of our antiquity.

I won't try to describe what it means to me, because it is something new each time I read it.

TRUST ME. I AM READING EVRYTHING YOU WRITE BUT BECUASE OF WHATEVER THE HECK IS GOING ON, I CANT RATE THEM BUT IT WILL NOT STOP ME FROM READING YOUR CREATIVE WORK. WHAT A CREATIVE MIND! DO YOU MIND ME ASKING WHERE YOUR WISDOM, THOUGHTS, DREAMS, ORIGINS COME FROM. YOU SEEM TO BE VERY DIVERSE IN YOUR THOUGHTS. JUST WONDERING

Thank you, I read a lot and write from what comes from my thoughts. I suffer from depression so this is a kind of therapy for me.
