burial ground

go ahead
feed me
cuz you know
that you do
I try to bury
my god given
to feel
nothing
it's fragile
too fragile
so you stir
to open
the ground
to lift
with quakes
hoping for
a connection
oh why
must you
persist still
the distance
isn't meant for
a challenge
but to keep you
at bay
I am safe
in this
stop reading
stop waiting
for airborn signals
that can't be
controlled
ignore them
until I've succeeded
for better
ground cover
