the hymn of art

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Dear Apparition

“But…what if the silence is broken by the ones you’ve loved? Incredibly present, with heavenly breath to wake you up? With nothing left to poison a portrait of who I’ve become, only elation remains; protecting us from this never ending night. Dear apparition, while my senses last: is absolution far too much to ask? Will you forgive a truly troubled mask?”

Inspired by my friends/favorite band The Dear Hunter’s new album ‘Act V: Hymns With The Devil in Confessional’. Fantastic, beautiful record. Go check it out! It’s on Spotify and stuff.
