Stay with me
Just long enough for me to see
That you truly love me
Sorry I’m needy
But I want more than your pity
I need you to love me
I guess that’s the key
But only you could unlock me
So stay with me
Just long enough for me to see
That you do truly love me

Look upon my misery
Trapped here on this island
You think we want to lure men to injury?
Think that we want to call this our homeland?

We sing these beautiful songs
And cry for help
And the men come in throngs
But at the beauty their minds do melt

And though they struggle to free us
They dash their ships on the rocks
All for what, to free us?
And so now the god's do mock!

My feathered friends
Do feel the same
For they too hate to see men bend
And hate how we are forced to sing a song so lame

But what about you?
You have listened to my plea
And you are still sane along with your crew
Come save us from this island and make us free!

Closer now
In to the fome
Watch your bow
Your entering my home...

On to the rocks you cast your ship
Your mind still set
On the words that came from my lips
It is fate that you just met

Lame is the song I sung
But you fell as others will
On every word you hung
So I shall sing it still.

My eyes has been
wide open all night
like a corpse’s eyes

Would you come and
gently close them for
me so I can finally sleep?
I wanted to write a poem about how much I’ve missed her, and I guess this is my way of saying it.

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
I couldn't earn it
I don't deserve it, still
You give Yourself away

So, overflow in this place
Fill my heart with Your love
You're the reason I am here
To encounter Your love and mercy
Your love,the overwhelming
reckless love,
surrounds us

I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left
Just let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That's frail and torn
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that's dead inside can be reborn

Just take my failure
Just take my weakness
You set Your treasure
In jars of clay
So take this heart, Lord
I'll be Your vessel

The tears of pain and heartache
Are pouring down my face
I know in the eye of the storm
You remain in control
And in the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me

I can see
Your heart in everything You've made
even in me
even in every burning star
You don't speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice

If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
Tell the world I know that my mind is made
It's a hard show, but I'm not afraid
That maybe the shattered parts
Are the places where Your love starts
And now I am closer to where You are
With every beat of my broken heart
You surround me
Reckless love
This is amazing grace
Here as in heaven
Broken vessels
eye of the storm
so will i
bird with a broken wing
every beat of my broken heart

Sorry if it is everywhere but it is the only way to put this one out there. Messy, wonderful, praiseworthy,painful, me. This might be a plea of help but also a showing of strength.
Magnificent to see shining spree,

you and I under a tree.

infatuation I build to plea!
Your presence
Is enough
Nothing else matters.

I feel that whenever I see you, think of you. You are the one with a serine smile where kindness resides, embraced with a eternal beauty, and mastered with a craft to heal soul.
I felt like an ancient bond with you, unparallel to anything I ever knew.

Let me admire you, forever
Let me web you into verses
Let me melt in your eyes
Let me be alive
Once again

If you let
Let me call you, mine
Let me walk by your side
Let us dream the same
Truely be, I am

Let me
Be your home
Let me call you
My home

Can someone hear me?
Can someone hear me?

It’s so dark in here.
So many days, so many nights

Can someone hear me?

Set me free
Anyone! Someone!

I’ve been in here for a decade!
I hear growling,
I’m scared.

I’m in over my head,
The liquid!
It’s going over my head.

Help me please!
I’m stuck in the bottle

I heard you call my name in a dream
Did you need me, my dear?

I stayed up night after night
just to hear your I love you’s
just to hear your repetitive lies

Won’t you come back again?
Lie to me my dear darling one

I beg of you,
my dear,
my light,
in the shedding bleak midnight,
come to me with your wounds

Or at least get me a cigarette,
and leave me to drown along with my sorrows
Najla Nov 2019
O, be the starry sky,
and I will be your
ever tender star

But don’t let me
be the lone moon
