Oh Take Me With You

An engineer-to-be trying to find solace and solitude in writing.

oh-take-me-with-you

Amidst the clouds, the deserted stars

hidest thou,

concealing your countenance, your charisma,

from the world so vicious..


Oh how I await, to catch a glimpse of you,

that would quench my heart, quench my soul.

Adorned with dainty dales and ardent alps,

a vision that drives me through a trance.


Alas, the heinous world perturbs my thoughts.

I beseech you,

take me with you,

to a land devoid of gloom and grief,

devoid of misery and melancholy.


Bestow upon me your aura,

to dwell in it, I live and long for.

Thou art shy, so am i.

Hence I find in you a comrade.

The wicked world weakens me,

embrace me, embrace my anguish

I beseech you,

take me with you.

Beautiful! Mother Moon connects me with her rhythms and waves. I can't get enough of her beauty.

"The glow and beauty of the stars

are nothing near the splendid moon

when in her roundness she burns silver

about the world."

Thank you.
