a love letter to myself.
a plea to a past god.


time is wasting away
keep your hands on the clock
beg it to stay
if only you knew
i’m reading the gospel of you
praying to find some truth

you can dig me a hole
six feet under some half-assed

give me hell
give me time
give me space
to make you mine

if i ask you for forgiveness
would you free me from this illness
if i came to you on my knees
would you give me hope
if i said love is blind
would this be reconciled
i’m reading the gospel of truth
praying to find some you

i am waiting
palms are laying
in silence

break me down
wake me up
hold me close
let me go
