His Name Heals

A man thinks of how to run.
He thinks of how to live
He thinks of how to rest.
[In the house of things that eat us up]

—When life turns purple,
He wants his body up above clouds,
Away from the worships of graves.

He wants the clouds friendly forever,
Cos his heart is the fountain of fear.
— he wants to run. Live. Rest.
Without taming his fear—soul
From the city after darkness.

You have a saviour twinkling
In that darkness. A star.
His name Heals.
