every time that I wait
for empty space
come the psalms sung that you prayed
such loving could turn me to rust
such wasted trust
but the wounds still turn on key

I'll see the night that you turn on all I lack
all my cracks
darkness so tired
of seeing its own back
do I know I would break
if I'm saved

poems that pour forth like fate
my crucifix
worms of poison turn me black
wrapped your love tight 'round the neck
such difference
dangled lonely, lost instead

turn from the lights
they just hold me from my fate
my own
shadows are life
they keep me in this place
should I go?
yes I can leave but
would I really want to try

I could love you or sigh
I could denounce this space
if I'm saved
