The Sadomasochist

There is an augmenting confliction in my bones.
It stems from a scarlet seed now restricting my every move.
I am rooted to the surface.

Liberty lies within the sacred proclamations.
How can I deny what has been said? “you hold the potential."
But my lips are sewn tight.

An immense obstacle is in my path with a face like my own.
Its particles continue their quick conglomeration.
Who has the might to stop fate?

Truth stares me as a reflection.

I am the sower.
I am the tailor.
I am the molder.
