Shine on me!

Prompt

 

In the deep slumber of my soul, your love, My Love!, keeps me alive. Taken no prisoners, in your pursuit, but dearth of a longing wears me down.

Have searched for your love in parched eyes of men and women – who surround me in a ruckus of living life.

Triviality of the great, nadir of the top, dead humor and silent loss.

I hear of love, from claimants abound. But how could that be love, My Love!

Waxing and waning like the moon in a dark sky – so does my faith, keeps flickering all night!

I’m like a desert bare and burnt, basking under a scorching sun. You come as rain, pour into me.

I’ve waited for long – learning to long, pining to belong.

Come, shine on me. For the king only can decree – my severed soul, plundered on sea, to a restful anchor, on shores of peace.

  1. I adored these two lines – ‘Waxing and waning like the moon in a dark sky – so does my faith, keeps flickering all night!/I’m like a desert bare and burnt, basking under a scorching sun. You come as rain, pour into me.’ Such beautiful metaphors. Great work! Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write. 🙂
