You will become
You will need
Will provide the help you need
And I will hide
Something inside the cadaver
They take new tissue from
There is no refrain
From the circle
That I bury
In you.

I like the plexus of the poem overall but feel it's in need of some slight modification.  Line 9 feels unnecessary or could be re-worded?  Also, 10-12 might be more effective as:
"there is no refrain
  from the circle
  I bury you in"
of course, that may change what you're trying to convey..

Damn jk. Thanks for the input... line 9 was my favourite line. :( was trying to do an ani difrancoesque "tapdance" there. Will rethink.

Regarding the last lines, I don't bury the person. I bury the curse in the person. So changing that would change the meaning. Ty for input.
