Go read all the lyrics, I dare you.

------
Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

I tell stories not because I want to find God, but because He's already found me.
I don't think I'll ever really understand.

at midnight, when
no one is watching
except the
pale full moon,
and the street lights
burn bright
beneath her
second story window,
a girl rises from
her bed and builds
a pair of wings from
graded papers,
old photographs, and
discarded memories,
she collects failures
and folds them
into feathers,
takes forgotten dreams
and fashions them
into a wingspan that
stretches
across the bedroom,
she takes flight
and spirals upwards
into the night sky,
lies down among
the stars,
names herself
a constellation,
and searches for
a shred of meaning
beyond this world
