Lost prayer

By deathndismay

Lamb of God
Pray to thee
As I Lay Dying
Set me free
God forbid
That I should speak
My will is broken
I am weak
Father, break me
Take me under
Brother, Render me
Steal from me the breath of life
As I constrict upon the knife
I am cursed, for I rebel
My soul shall burn
Eternal hell

No dream
So sudden
Take away
My solace
Take away
Never cease

Take this burden
Burn away
All That I've become
Take my hurt
I've earned this day
By fires, I'm undone

    awe I so feel the loneliness in this. If you ever want to chat I am on almost all the time. :)

    This is something very powerful, like a soul-aria. I feel like this should be spoken and performed. ... an ache to be burned away into solace ash.
