Lost in your love
Wesam Tanana Sep 18
I love you...now
I just do not
Have the words
To quite express

How much I love you
I don't know
From where
Or how
Or why

But for now
I love you
Ever so deeply
I miss you lately

I need you here
Lay in my arms
And kiss me to sleep
I love you...now
Ever so deeply

Where Have You Gone
Wesam Tanana Jul 30
So do tell me
My darling
Just where
Have you gone

Why did you leave
It was too soon
I miss you
It's been too long

I'm sorry that I..
Hurt you when
I myself...was hurting
But now I hurt more

I still smell your fragrance
I still hear your voice
But I miss your touch
And it's become too much

Without you here
By my side
I'm all alone
Bleeding inside

My Heart's Secret
Wesam Tanana Jul 17
When the sun sets
Far into the horizon
When the birds fly
Far off into the sky

When the dark night
Takes its' course
When the ships sail
Far into the sea

When all becomes quiet
And alone I am
All by myself
It is you that I see

Don't Get Too Close
Wesam Tanana Jul 16
You want to be loved
But I am unavailable
I no longer have it in me
To devote myself

Don't get too close
Beneath this tough skin
I'm broken inside
I don't feel anymore

I'm sorry, you're late
It isn't you, but it's that...
I've been betrayed before
And I haven't recovered

I'm sorry that you love me
Because I feel numb
It isn't you, but it's that...
Love I no longer know

So go ahead and leave
It's too dark here where I am
You deserve more
Leave me here to heal

Unspoken Tragedy
Wesam Tanana Jul 16
As I looked into the mirror
I wasn't myself anymore
I've come to realize that life
Has beat me down to my core

Once so full of life...and love
Now so down and full of spite
No words to express
Why my chest feels so tight

My friends I once loved
No longer call my phone
I expressed my loyality
But I've been left alone

I don't trust anymore
And I don't want your empathy
Just let me be to myself
Until you see the end of me

They say I've changed a lot
But they don't seem to see
Those that once loved me
Left me here to bleed

I'm tired.

I am in need of You.
Wesam Tanana Mar 28
I've always been taught
To work for what I need
To give in order to receive
To pray and track my deeds

But often I forget my source
My source of success and strength
It is He who will guide my course
However long the road in length

He is my guide; He is my will
The will to go on longer
To keep me strong and still
Until my faith becomes stronger

Blessed in ways I can't believe
For someone who's been broken
For so long, I'm ready to receive
His guidence and blessings

All blessings from my lord most high
He who is always near when I need
Comfort from every silent cry
Forgive me lord, here I plead

I am in need of You.

Painful Memories
Wesam Tanana Mar 27
Farewell....
To all the memories
That I knew would be short lived
To the ones that were
Once my companions

I sit in a room full of others
Yet here I am so alone
Torn with nothing but memories
And a pinch of sadness in my chest

Join Me
Wesam Tanana Feb 7
I begin on this new journey
Now falling into place
Once so bad, now so great
Moving fast, I cannot keep pace

Once in the distance
Now my reality
What once was rare
Is now a normality

But my heart remains heavy
All so well yet lost in despair
No one to share my joy with
No one that will truly care

How far I've come
Yet here I am alone
Join me on my journey
Because true love
I have never been shown

So take my hand

And join me....

Goodbye
Wesam Tanana Jan 24
I know...

I know what you want
You've played this game
For far too long
Said you wanted me

But you don't
You're in love with what
I can do for you
You think you're slick

But little do you know
I know all and do not say
It is you who will suffer
And you will certainly pay

You thought you led me on
But it is me who played
The game much better
Because my heart belongs

To someone else who has
Been treating me
Much better
All along
Goodbye

Love and Fear
Wesam Tanana Jan 22
I'm so afraid to tell you
What I truly feel for you
I love you so deeply
Inwardly and outwardly

Tell me your insecurities
Show me your flaws
Tell me about your dreams...
Your worries and your sorrows

Lay your head on my shoulder
Lay your head on my chest
Let me hold you so tightly
Let me kiss you on your lips
Let me feel you so lightly

But I'm afraid

I love you so much
That I cannot risk...
Scaring you away

Do you not feel the same?
I can see it in your eyes
And if you don't, then I'll understand

Because those we love the most
Sometimes they do not stay
But I still want you...

But I'm afraid

I'm afraid to become vunerable
Once again...because I can't afford
To lose another piece of myself
I've lost myself before...trying to
Pick others up and piece them together

But I love you...ever so much
I love your smile
I love your fragrance
I love the way you look into my eyes
I love your touch...
I love all of you.

Although I'm afraid
Fear cannot contain my love for you
And perhaps that's what scares me most...

I'm afraid to love you
But you are
Already
A part of me.

You Linger On My Mind
Wesam Tanana Jan 12
Have I gone mad
With every sudden move
You linger on my mind
So make it your home

Rest in my thoughts
For now only because
Thinking of you hurts
When I cannot have you..
In my arms...

You are my sickness when
You drift far away from me
And you are my remedy
When you glance at me

Is it too much to ask...
For you to give me your heart..
Give me a chance to show you...
That love does not make us blind

But those who have never loved are
Wesam Tanana Jan 10
For you, a thousand times...
You are the air I breathe
And the warmth to my soul
The reason for my happiness

For you, a thousand times...
A thousand times over...and over
My mind contains you
And our souls intertwine

For you, a thousand times...
Until we sail off into the night
Together we drift afar
From all this chaos

Take my hand
Come a little closer
Embrace my warmth
And leave your fears

For if it were not for you
A thousand times would seem much
But with you, it's never enough
For you, a thousand times...

And a thousand times over

Broken
Wesam Tanana Jan 10
They say to treat others
How you'd like to be treated
But what happens
When you treat them well...
And they leave you broken...

When you give them your all
And they leave you empty


And here you are at 3 am
Fighting your demons
Battling your grief
While they no longer care

You battle...
These vicious thoughts

At 3 am
All alone

It's all so quiet
But yet so loud

No Warning
Wesam Tanana Jan 10
You run endlessly
In my mind
With no end in sight

With every glance and smile...
I fall even more in love with you
For every part of you...
Is now a part of me

You came with no warning
You stole my heart...
But gave me every reason to smile...
Hope that love is alive
So that I should stay a while

Every second that you're with me
I forget all of life's worries
My pain becomes joy...
And I can never get enough of you

Maybe it's your smile,
Your hair or beautiful eyes
I'm not sure how or why
You're always so beautiful,
Even when you don't try

I loved you yesterday,
I love you more today,
And I'll love you more tomorrow
For the thought of losing you
Leaves me in pain and sorrow

So long as you stay here besides me
And I too right beside you
Our love shall grow stronger
And our bond inseparable

I look for you in every woman
And in every woman I see you
But it'll never be the same
Because I only want you...

Since You've Been Gone
Wesam Tanana Jan 9
My days have become long
And my nights even longer
The thought of no longer having you
Leaves me distressed and aching

My heart shattered
My mind no longer able
Every thought of us in my heart
Digs deeper and deeper

Have you forgotten our bond...
My hand in yours...
And your hand in mine.
So intense yet so right.

My lips on yours...
And your lips on mine
Like two birds in rhythm
flying into the night

Perhaps you'll find your way
Back to me
For one last dance

In every crowd...
It is still you I look for

I want nothing more
Than to hold you in my arms,
kiss you and tell you that I love you

But now I lie here alone
with my thoughts so heavy
What once was...no longer is

I loved you always and forever
But maybe forever
Has ran its course....

— The End —
