Don't go

Don't go

Don't leave

Though the devil maybe calling

Just come to my heart

As the darkness is falling

It was stolen before

And returned in small pieces

But now it yours

For only you can release it

The girl from the streets

Who spoiled the view

Moved into the shadows

Yet time already knew

That one day you would call me

And capture my heart

So I could paint pictures

Of all of your scars

So my eyes could mourn the death

Of your beautiful smile

Yearn for your gentle touch

As all of the while

Quiet echoes of your laughter

Fell silent in the storm

So don't go 

Don't leave

Stay, stand against the cold

Lead me from my darkness

From the maddness of my soul

For without you by my side

My life is but a whisper

A castaway in the crowd

A cold and lonely drifter

So don't go

Don't leave

Though the devil maybe calling

Just come to my heart

As the darkness is falling.

Oh, c'est puissant. Je l'avais manqué celui-ci... je suis un peu bouche-bée quant à ce que je pourrais dire en réponse à ces mots ici... disons que je me sens plutôt très émue. Merci :)

An absolutely stunning poem, in both sentiment and style (and I'm not prone to superlatives. ) You're very good at putting a poem together without extraneous "filler" words or lines, which makes it more powerful. And the sentiments are beautiful and remind me of a time before my heart was such a conglomerate of crazy glue that jt cojld no longer be broken :-)
