Stay (Song)

by Maher   Oct 23, 2017


Excuse me, Miss, may I forget
this broken heart I've yet to set?
I've traveled far but to find rain,
falling gently upon the stains.

Excuse me, Love, may I descend?
Upon your throne, I will pretend.
My breath it falls between the years
it took the stars to scar these dreams.

Would you stay close to me, I'm sure
the heat would beg to burn you more;
like flinging fire into the sun:
the rays don't walk, they only run.

If you'd stay close at hand, I'd show
how love could dry us to the bone.
When Heaven closes, then you'd know:
we'd strayed too close to Hell alone.

    Judging comment.

    Too close to the sun or too close to hell? Either way it going to burn.

    I simply loved the flow of this poem. It rhymes really well and ones eyes simply dance over it. As lyrics they are astounding.

    A fantastic write which one day, I'm sure we would all love to hewar set to music.

    Great work (4)
