Sender to receiver: Where are you? Are you coming back for me anytime soon? I’m lost without and I miss you, but there’s this noise I can’t get past, so where are you? Will you break these wall s down and show up in your old crown, the one that I forgot? The one that reminds me to listen to everything hissing and hooting and hollering, hoping you’ll come around? ‘Cause when you come around the spring will spring and winter finds its bloody end from in the ground.

Sender, I love you, but I’m caught up in the evil that I do. I’ve been carrying this baggage by the truckload. I can’t do this. Will you break these walls down? Daddy, Daddy, I need you. I know I’m the one who ran away, but I need you to pour out your old grace on my poor face and my calloused hands and bring me to stand on some new land. It’s too much to ask, but oh my God, I need you.

Cause I know I can’t do this on my own.
