Hiding beneath the crevices left by Your mercy
I abandoned my shell and now no longer own my beauty,
The beauty You have given me
Giving up the tender kiss of the ocean for the eyes of a greedy world.
I now hide behind my thirsty tongue in a sleep of silence
Hiding my sins under pillows that dream them away
Seeking refuge from behind the walls of emptiness as my hungry heart fails to bleed again.
My heart has become a glass ornament in the hands of this careless world
In the world of heart breaks and high cliffs it shatters into shards
That I cannot pick up without bleeding
I use the memories to clot the wounds
Because I am ashamed to seek Your tender cure in this state of greed
I reminisce about the years
The years that I sought Your presence when sadness took hold of me without realising my tears themselves were created by You to carry my anguish quietly.
I sought Your nearness when the world had abandoned me without realising each return of breath was Your reply to my calamity.
I sought Your heeling as sins crippled me away from You, not knowing each time I bled the scars that remained were reminders of how many times You had truly healed me.
From the surface of my heart to the surface of my skin
From the depth of my breaths that find home in my lungs to the depth of my thoughts that quake in my mind.
You created me such
A testimony of Your endless love.
