Bring me back








Anoint me with oils

of frankincense, neroli and ylang ylang


still my body

still my soul



cleanse away my sins

absolve me of my guilt

dissolve my anxiety

and allay my hurt


Fill up the void

with flowers


cover my eyes

with gold coins


and bring me back

    Lift you upon the alter of love~save you from your guilt~baptized in my pain~I say to you~you’ll never be alone~I am with you always~& the coin I grant~is every piece of my broken heart #prose
