I'm saved

You pull my fingers out the dirt,
You pluck me wriggling from the world

I'm saved

You cast me up into the wind,
You shuck my body from its skin

I'm saved

Fire licking at the walls,
You drag me burning across the coals

I'm ashamed

Lying fallen on some stair,
Clutching at the empty air

I'm awake

I see you walk into the room,
And do the thing I couldn't do

I'm afraid

My burning footprints on the floor,
Things I don't need anymore

I'll wait
