Thorns & Thrones
I think for a long time
I blamed my heart,
Tortured my soul
And maimed my mind.

I think for a long time
I crucified myself
For aching so much,
When it was entirely your work.

I took on a cross not my own,
And buried my body
In a grave
That was unknown.

While you sat on your throne,
Watching me suffer,
Turning me into a clown,
Cursed to hurt for you,
And you alone.
