I dreamt he cut out my heart

I dreamt a foreign born god cut off my head, my legs, my arms. I dreamt he cut out my heart.  After he had finished butchering my body, he scattered the pieces to the four corners of the earth.  After my resurrection, I didn't recognize myself.  After my resurrection, I realized it hadn't been a dream.
