1998 - 2010

Dipped in bleach

Soaked and burnt to unrecognizable

Clothed in a sheet of:

"Who am I?"

"Where did I come from?"

Cuts and engravings,

Ties and cords;

Lord, let me bleed til

I'm colorless.

Let me cry like the rain

Til I'm dry.

Let me scream like a thunder storm;

Let me dance like my soul is silent.

I hang like overcast,

Hazy, dark,

Unclear and dissatisfied.

Where's the sun, Lord God?

Where's my shadow?

Pull me out from my hiding place.

In the freezing cold,

In the darkness

Bind me til I'm empty

Of all my disgrace.

Free me of my shame.

Let me bleed, Lord God

Til I'm colorless!
