Amen

Take the ugly from my veins

That hate my body

And corrupt my brain

Quiet the voices in my head

That say I’m better off just dead

Free my heart from it’s steel cage

Built of sadness, fear and rage

Find my soul, wandering lost

Bring it back at any cost

Forgive my angry words of doubt

Show me faith when I’m without

Teach my spirit a sweet, new song

Maybe I’ll smile when things go wrong

Who were you?

who were you?

to follow me to
my hidden place
to take me from 
my controlled
space? to feed me
from your broken
hands that roamed
around at every 
chance

who were you?

to force your
storms inside my
life? Put me
through your 
worldly strife
bottle up my
words so tight
pluck the wild
out from my light

who were you?

who spoke with
love laced in 
hate? Possessed
a thirst that
could not wait
to command the
tears from my 
soul, break apart 
what once was
whole

who were you?

to watch me whither
with each breath
left alone
caressing death
only to awake 
again, knowing
this is not
The End
