The Living Among the Dead

The Living Among the Dead

I am white washed tombs
doom and gloom
theory of the swoon
I am dead man’s bones
naked and alone
outside gleaming
white washed and beaming
inside hollow and echoes
I am . . . live among the cemeteries
tombstone headrests and chains
lifeless, empty, broken remains
broken and blood stained

Why am I
looking for the living
among the dead?
the tombs are empty
the dead have raised
enough said

clothed and in my right mind
I am life given
death adverse
He broke the curse
shattered my chains
given life to these remains

I Am Resurrection and Life
He calls me out by name
grave clothes drop
death and the curse . . . they stop
I am . . . new life given
born again
I am broken free from sin
. . . Spirit filled within
