Sky of Emptyness

Sky of Emptyness

By Jeremiah Hunsicker

take this exhaustion
    and make a new breathe of it
take this grey cloud
    and make it hold weight again
take this ocean
    and fill it back up again
take these two hands
    and make them strong again

Don't let it fly away
    into a sky of emptyness
Invested it all too long
    to bury it with my sorrow
Precipitate on this
    make it grow back once more
Deny nothing from me

take this hunger
    and never satisfy it again
take this passion
    and burn brighter than ever
take this heart
    break it so i can start again
take this heart
    break it so i can feel again

Don't let it fly away
    into a sky of emptyness
Invested it all too long
    to bury it with my sorrow
Precipitate on this
    make it grow back once more
Deny nothing from me

take this path
    and end its unavailing
take this wall
    and break it down again
take this song
    and make it touch again
take this sight
    and make it discern again
take these words
    and make them true again
