Jerusha Rai

Oblivion

Jerusha Rai



there I will laugh like a child
and I'll sleep like a baby
there I will be on my knees
I'll be broken and holy and free

there I will beat on my chest and scream 
there I will whisper my story

I will forget who I am 
I will forget what I've done

there I will start a fire
I will sing around it
there I will dance
I will draw pictures in the sand

there I will take off my clothes
and there I will take off my masks
and there I will dive in the water
there I will see god

I will forget who I am 
I will forget what I've done
