Dismantle Me

dismantle me –
bones break inside.
cages collapse
ego tries to hide.

from tower to none.
the birth of night
nudges me undone.

interwoven myths
stories i have known.
perfect patterns stitched
are suddenly unsewn.

bone and cloth
structure and skin.
this armor held lies
which echo from within.

but now –

uncaged deceptions
dissolve in pure light.
simplicity unwraps
truth and I reunite.

writing anew
weaving heart and soul
no bones, skin or ego
needed to become whole.

Break of dawn
Unbounded and free
a tower of heart
at once, I am wholly me.
