sky

Let me Bleed

Let me Bleed

Let me bleed
Lie to me
Twist the words, make them timeless
When the sun goes down and stars shimmer…
that soft silver glint in the eye
Pray
Pray that the clouds unleash
Sky paints a black coat to its soul
Move the shade away
Let the storm petrify
Warmth still lurks on the hammer’s head
Step away
Don’t tend to my wounds
Because sometimes
You bleed just to know you’re alive

Gaze

stars - gaze

I gazed at the moonless night brightly lit by a thousand stars
Listening the silent hum of my heart worn out by inner wars

Lost in thousand thoughts spell was broken by a gust of air
Was surprised when realized my head bowed down in prayer

Thoughts were not accompanying my lips it all seemed a lie
Perplexed distraught opened my eyes to gaze back at the sky

I try God, I try taming my heart but doubt finds ways to creep
Telling it daily that He gives to His beloved even in their sleep 1

Following that path of righteousness when things go wrong
This world keeps mocking that for its tricks I am not strong

And then I saw a shooting star next moment it was no more
Realized strife’s are temporary our boats always get to shore

Remembering the times You got me out when things got rough
Forgive me God for my blessings I can never thank You enough

 

 

Context
1. Psalm 127:2

Owl

Owl

Slowly I opened my eyes

But the night has

Gone by

Seems like a vivid

Dream

Had everything so

Clear in it

The colors seemed

So bright

Engulfed by its

Clarity I flew

Flew like a free

Spirit

Free with a glee in

My heart

But now…

My night is over

The colors are gone

I sit alone

Welcoming the light

Of the day

Which hurts my eyes

And breaks my

Heart
