Wasteland

Crashing down
On my knees
World around me
Fades to ash


Crying out
Hurting pain
Nothing but emptiness
Pouring into me


No strength
Body weak
Wandering aimlessly
Through this wasteland


Tears flow down
Heart cries out
Soul is seeking
Need Your love


Raise my voice
Sweet melody
Fire burning
Cleansing me


Fill me again
Fill this hole
Gaping wide
Wanting You


Ease this pain
Dry my tears
Create a place
For me to rest



Piece together
These shattered dreams
Heal these
Broken hopes


Lead me to the pasture land
Protection from evil woes
Pick me up from the ground
Let me soar with new wings



Restore my soul
Cleanse the scar
Of brokenness
Fill this emptiness


I need more
Than anything
Watch over me
My faithful King

This poem is so powerful, and so passionate.  I love how strong the character speaks of wanting to be healed and freed <3

The touch of this emotion is very fluid and very strong, and it depicts a story in my mind, from being hurt and weak to the emotional hurt and asking for love to help for someone to heal, honestly a good poem:) Please read and comment on some of my poems:)
