Over the years I built a fortress.
Brick by brick, I assembled it.
Strong, forboding, it encased my fears.
The walls hid my nature, my desires.

You found your way in.
The illusion crumbled under your gaze.
My secrets told themselves.
Piece by piece I am exposed.

You deconstruct me.
Finding that I had been dismantled, long ago.
Within my fortress,
I have been sitting in rubble.

You rend the temple curtain.
You enter the holy of holies.
You consume me.
I am swallowed whole.

My shame is laid open,
My soul is freed.
My resistance is gone.
You possess me.
