Dying to Myself

aids500

I live in sin, dying to myself I live;

Takes away that fear that I carried forever
You stopped to wipe away my tears
And you stayed forever and more

Elton John and David Furnish

I’m still standing after all this time

“A theme of twinship has always run through my work, of people that look alike. And that was another reason I was drawn to wrestling because I feel like wrestlers look a certain way.”

and
washing your body down at the sink

Horizon of Expectation

Adi Nes
