4 30 AM When Sheep Leap And Lay In A Heap

Held visions burnt in stone   
Killing me ever so slowly...

Here I Lay Broken
Here I Lay Broken

Like A Rag Doll 

Discarded So Easy

No One Cares

Maybe They Are Unaware

From the Floor

I Look at The Door

Will He Come Back

To Re-attack

Crystal eyes that reflect but never see
Heart of glass, warm but frozen still 
Unspoken cries of a child unseen
Spirit untouched
Taken hostage by an iron will

My wrists slit,
Slowly bleeding out,
Gathering into
little puddles,
The very essence of
my life,
Now lies wasted on
the floor,
I wonder how did I
get to be here?

I Lay Here-----Bleeding
The source of my life,

Nurturing the soil

From whence I came

Mortal blood ebbing,

Eternal fluid light,

Filling my veins

Pain flowing,

Into obscurity

God's love,

Forever in my sight

The wicked have stolen...
