Forever Hidden

by Tirzah Shams

Those cloaked figures clouded my past
Time is going away too fast

I need you to show me the moonlight
Entangled in the darkest night

You taught me to be so strong
What we are is forever wrong

The blood in my veins is yours forever
I’ll always be free when we are together

And till I dream, I dream of you
I love you so much I never knew

But our love is too forbidden
It will remain forever hidden

Emma to Julian

(Based on The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare)

Even when I lost every one I knew
The only thing I thought about was you

And when I lost my mum and dad
You were the only person I had

We’ve been through so much
My only hope was in your touch

We even became orphans together
Doesn’t that mean we last forever

We are partners in battle, soulmates one may say
I confess here I love you, standing in front of you today

We did have moments of sadness
When I was filled with tears and madness

But happiness we did find
You never seemed to ever mind

Our fights were big but love always lasted
Two in a million, perfectly casted

Our love broke the law, we didn’t know it was a curse
We wanted to be forever, but things just got worse

Bullied

You took away all I care about
You took away all I like
You took away all I love
You made me hate my own life

Your words were like daggers
They hit me straight in the heart
You said things that made me feel useless
You took my life apart

Ignore him he’ll leave you alone
That is what I was told
But how ignore when he’s right in front
Tearing you in pieces from whole

Bulling me again and again
Till the door of my happiness shut
You knew you harmed me
You gave me a huge cut

Don’t worry no one can see it
It buried deep in my heart
Don’t worry no one can see it
But it’s tearing me apart

Facade

by Tirzah Shams
The mask we wear everyday
The mask that helps us hide
The mask that hides impurities

The mask that gives us pride

The mask we wear when we bully
The mask we wear when we fight
The mask we wear to make us pretty

When nothing we do is right

The mask that forgets friendship
The mask that forgets humanity
Why wear such a horrible mask

When it makes you forget your sanity

The mask that gives you power
The mask that makes you special
It just makes you a monster

It’s brings you closer to the devil

At least Lucifer accepted his truth
He knew he was a fallen angel
But you don’t know what harm you do

You don’t know you’re a danger

So take that mask off for a minute
And take a long look around you
These aren’t your crowd, the people you need
Because you aren’t how they found you

Our Love

For love to be extraordinary
Life doesn’t have to be perfect
Cause I want to be with you
Even if it’s not correct
So give me your heart
As you already have mine
Cause even if you don’t love me
One day you shall be mine
I know I will love you
With a love that shall not die
Until the sun goes cold
And birds do not fly
You always had my heart
You’re the keeper of my soul
And when I am with you
I finally feel whole

 

What is the love of Jesus?

(a poem)

A love not self centered
A love always remembered
A love that would free us
Is the love of Jesus

The Messiah, the chosen one
He died on the cross for what we have done
A love that would save us
Is the love of Jesus

The Lord of Moses, the Lord of Abraham
He suffered for our sins and became the lamb
A love that would complete us
Is the love of Jesus

He lived on earth and saved my soul
He gave me a chance to finally feel whole
A love with a second chance for us
Is the love of Jesus

He rose from the dead to give us new life
Prepared for us a place in afterlife
A love that would claim us
Is the love of Jesus

The Perplexing Dream

Chained in Dreams

My eyes fluttered open to see I’m stranded on a hill, chained to a tree, its branches digging into my back. Graves all around, of wood and metal and marble. I could feel the chain, cutting through my hands, my body ached with a pain unknown to me. I was soaked in blood, mine or someone else’s I didn’t know. Where was everyone, my parents, my brother?

Something, at the back of my mind tells me that they are all dead and the world I once believed in destroyed. I struggled a little and the chains fell down. I dragged myself into a cave, wanting shelter more than anything. Inside, I screamed and shouted, but nothing came out of my mouth.

I saw a stream, flowing with blood, a heavy fog everywhere. The deafening silence killing me. It took all the energy I had, but I got up. I went outside the cave to see what was happening, but nothing was right. A moment ago there were graves, now bodies piled up on each other. All the silence was now gone, mocking jays around me. They were whistling a tune that hurt my ears and blood tickled down my spine.

Then I woke up with tears in my eyes and my palms sweaty. Everything is back to normal. It was just a dream, I thought. Or was it?
