Crying Myself to Sleep

It's just one o'clock

Red colored, and rimmed.

With the word of God,
But the amendable features'
Are complete when you accept
The Lord unconditionally

kisses so tender

in your arms I sleep

Thou crack and crumble in light of the sun.
Thy beauty’s all but washed and burned away
All of my love for thee has been undone.
