(Iron & Wine, another recently found artist thanks to Spotify, has some really incredible metaphoric storytelling.  Day 298…)

Must be a symptom of outstanding circumstances…

I asked him
“What was dying like?”
Building the courage to ask him what I really wanted to ask
He replied
“It brought me closer to God.”
The divinity in him knowing what I wanted was not lost on me
He walked like a man with new testament written in his bandages
Proving that words can never hurt
Because words can always heal.

Then, I cried
And He said,
“Yeah. Like that.”
