Useful memories

Processed with VSCOcam with h4 preset

Step lightly on my soul,
among the questions
and aspirations longing
to be heard. Gather your will,
your fortress walls and parapets
firm against what withering storm
may come. There, bound in skin
and painted gray by memory,
I’ve shelved the shadows
in disarray, no welcome order
to unburden the weight.
Choose what ingredients
your recipe may need, take
those elements and make them
yours, rewritten or plagiarized
as you see fit, but think no less
of me when the fires die down
and all that is left is this worn soul
burnt and charred; buried there
deep within the ashes lies all
that I am, ready to be molded
into mortar once more.
