Blending with graffiti on the fouled alley walls.
I’m shouting, too. One discordant note in a shrieking din.
Meth, blow, crank. They taunt me.
I’ve become meaningless, chained to a squalid mattress.
Blessed are the pure.
And what of me? What of me?
I’m lost, afraid. Come find me, Lord.
My soul longs for fulfillment.
Let there be rejoicing in the presence of your angels this day.
I cry in the darkness.
Blood dripping from my swollen lip, my blackened eye.
I’m hurting. Twisted every way in frantic distress.
This is my own doing… abandoned by self.
I’ve become a vapor. Without merit, substance.
Let she who is without sin…
That’s not me. That’s not me.
I’m desperate, seeking. Come help me, Lord.
My spirit longs for fulfillment.
Let there be rejoicing in heaven over me this day.
I’ve met you before.
You, in that polished car and church clothes.
I watched your wife buying truffles as you propositioned me.
I’m worth more than twenty bucks.

I’m suffering, disillusioned. What happened, Lord?
My heart cries for fulfillment.
Leave the others, light your lamp. Seek me once again this day.
