Unwinding Into Blue

All strength has left this sanctuary
Built inside of him with a beauty
That nature had to destroy
The one that once was will never truly be

Eyes closed
All he feels is air entering his lungs

What had become this dream
Was turned into another insomniac night
He prayed and promised and nurtured
But He has taken away all that would make things right

Eyes closed
All he hears is the crying of the unborn

There was once a living being
Residing within what used to be a shell
Why did she have to be stolen from him?
His number was before hers in Hell

Eyes closed
All he fears is lying dead in His hands

Shutting down, he'd escape into the white
And he'd foresee holding the creature
That love placed inside of his empty body
Now, he'll never get to see her

Eyes closed
All he sees is the pieces sinking

Before she came into this boy's life
He was hardly anything but a brick in the wall
Any substance was worth injection
But she made him smile picture-perfect

Eyes closed
All he breathes is the guilt of life

As the night travels onwards to meet day
Tears glide down his face
Feeling the hollow as deep as a black hole
Swallowing all that was good, leaving nothing but disgrace

Eyes closed
All he needs is burning for his sins

Staring ahead at the stoplight
All he can see is the angels coming to tear them apart
Wondering why they felt obliged to tease him
Is he not worthy of a single honorable mark?

Forever screaming
How his own is forever burning
