Eudaimonia

Can you squeeze out all
the agony in me?
I am not worthy
of what you call apathy.
Shame wrapped me
in the arms
of tender misery
and all my friends
have gone.
And my shadow have faded
Beat up the dust
of the starless night
across all wisdom
and dried up pieces
Come down and surround me
fall on my
Great shower of pain
and wash down
amends paid
for my faults.
And I lift the barrier
Forsaken. Destroyed.
Treat my ego
with foregone treachery
Lay down for me
Die down.
Let fade.
