My Feet My Arms

I am drawn poorly so sorely I move on upon the ground I move already gone. My God he is mute now before my eyes are wicked creatures and secrets of lies. Shall I examine here in this brief candle lit by an absent being; this life I can’t handle. I a vision of grace…

I Guess I’m Damned
