i am

i am devoured
i am exhausted
i am denied that which
i have been
i am relegated
to the edges

i am devoted
i protect my charge
and when she whispers
i elevate her voice
until it shimmers
and shatters
and tears itself asunder

i am legion
i am nothing
i am left to scrape
the filth from the walls
i capsize
i drown

i am devided
and devised
and revised
and reviled
and i am left
repulsed

i am the mask
i am the madness
i am the wall
i am the bricks

this is all that i am
i am exhausted
i am devoured
until at last
i am not
