Mizbeah's Lament

A Poem By Julie // 3/11/2010

 

I once knew

A thousand songs to speak for me
I once knew
A thousand shades of rose
But the songs were swallowed
By the silent night
And the roses withered
Before the dawning light
Praise was in my hands
But they cut it away
And my lips cannot
Find blessings to pray
 
Do you still hear?
Are you still listening?
 
I once knew
A thousand songs to speak for me
I once knew
A thousand shades of rose
The harp string broke
Ending forever his song
Though blood flowed
His faith remained strong
Who can heal
My broken heart
I thought I knew you
But we’re so far apart
 
Do you still hear?
Are you still listening?
 
I once knew
A thousand songs to speak for me
I once knew
A thousand shades of rose
The world is shattered
Grief comes crashing down
If sorrow is an ocean
I fear I shall drown
Will you hold me close
Safe in your arms?
When the monster comes
Will I be harmed?
 
Do you still hear?
Are you still listening?

This poem will be inserted in my NaNoWriMo story "Three Dark Roses."
